Samsung Galaxy A3 Smartphone Review

 

A small metal gadget. Samsung uses a slim metal casing for its Galaxy A lineup and had really impressed us with the Galaxy A5, even though the voice quality was not that good. In this report we will see why the Galaxy A3 is good, but not a bargain.

Stylish unibody casing, Very slim and stiff chassis, Extensive software, LTE support, Accurate tracking, Decent camera equipment, Precise input devices, Good screen, Low temperatures, Useful battery life

Screeching speaker, Middling screen resolution, Unsatisfactory voice quality, No 5 GHz Wi-Fi, Battery no longer removable

Basically, Samsung has managed a fantastic comeback with its Galaxy A series. However, this also involves a few losses. The removable battery, for example, has been axed. On the other hand, Samsung has created a first-rate slim unibody casing with a...

Samsung Galaxy A3 and A3 Duos review: A-ddictive

 

The Samsung Galaxy A3 is the junior member of the company's new metal-clad lineup. The least likely one to challenge the Alpha-dog but just as slim and sharp as the rest of its Galaxy A teammates.

Distinct Dual-SIM model (1GB RAM) and LTE model (1.5GB RAM, NFC, Cat. 4 LTE) available ; 4.5" qHD Super AMOLED touchscreen, 245ppi, with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and an ambient light sensor ; Android 4.4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz ; Snapdragon 410 chipset,...

On the pricey side at launch ; Relatively low resolution display ; Non-removable battery ; Dual SIM model has less RAM than the single-SIM model and no NFC ; The second SIM slot on the Dual SIM model doubles as a microSD slot, so you can only use it...

It's hard not to like the Samsung Galaxy A3. And there's more to like about it than what is on the outside. Even so, let's take one final moment to appreciate Samsung's creation.

Samsung Galaxy A3 preview: First look

 

Today, we get to enjoy the company of the most junior representative of the Samsung's metal-clad A team - the Samsung Galaxy A3. Just like the Alpha smartphone, the A3 offers an aluminum frame, which highlights a lightweight design, built around a...

The Samsung Galaxy A3 seems to have gotten most of the things right. It is a proper midrange offer with solid specs and feature-rich software.

Samsung Galaxy A3 review: Full In-Depth Hands-On

 

It was high time for Samsung to hear to their fans and offer them a complete metallic phone scrapping away their older plastic bodies. Well, the [easyazon_cta align=”none” identifier=”B00RVA7UU0″ key=”small-light” locale=”IN” tag=”nothwire-21″] is the...

So is the first full metal Samsung smartphone worth your money? Well the phone will be competing heavily against the Huawei Honor 6, the Xiaomi Mi4 and other budget phones. The Samsung Galaxy A3 is comparatively costlier and does not give as many specs...

Samsung Galaxy A3 Review

 

Samsung launched the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 smartphones with all metal build in India last month. Later it launched the Galaxy A7 smartphone, the top-end smartphone in the Galaxy A series. We already brought you the review of Galaxy A5 , here we have...

Good display; Solid build quality; Decent camera

Average performance; Lacks 4G LTE support; Slightly priced on the higher side

The Samsung Galaxy A3 is not on par with the in several aspects. Even though the smaller display with slightly less resolution compared to Galaxy A5 and good battery life are acceptable, lack of 4G support and just 1GB of RAM doesn’t make justice to...

Samsung Galaxy A3 review

 

The Galaxy A3 from Samsung is a mid-range phone with a premium metal design. It's compact, ultraslim, and exceptionally light in weight, and is quite possibly the nicest-looking phone you can own in this price category.

The Galaxy A3 is a mid-priced phone with a premium design, and that makes it quite special. We're particularly impressed by how slim and light it is, and if you don't like the new trend for huge phones, the A3 will look like a very attractive option....

Samsung Galaxy A3 Review

 

We take a look at the second device inSamsung's new A series, that also features a metal unibody construction, in this review of the Samsung Galaxy A3!

Unibody metal design ; Good battery life ; Compact form factor ; Good performance

Low resolution screen ; Non-removable battery ; Poor camera performance

Samsung Galaxy A3 review

 

Metal in the mid-range

Premium build quality ; Expandable storage ; Impressive performance and battery

Low resolution display ; Sub-par camera ; Non-removable battery

Last year's Galaxy Alpha and Note 4 signified the beginning of the end for all plastic, high-end Samsung smartphones. While the inclusion of a metal frame on both devices was certainly welcome, the Korean firm wasn't ready to forgo its beloved plastic...

Samsung Galaxy A3 review

 

The Galaxy A3, with its 4.5in screen, is the smaller version of the very similar Galaxy A5. It's a great-looking alternative to the bigger Samsung flagship phones, but should you buy one? Find out in our Samsung Galaxy A3 review.

You can now buy the Galaxy A3 SIM-free for around £160 if you search around online, or free on contract. But it’s possible to get the similarly specified Moto E for half the price, so it’s hard to justify spending the extra on the A3 for its cameras or...

Samsung Galaxy A3 review - small but beautiful

 

Performance could be better, but it's a small complaint when the Galaxy A3 has such a great design, screen, camera and battery life
