Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) Smartphone Review


Feels good. The special feature of the former model was its aluminum unibody casing. Samsung now uses more glass in the new iteration. The screen of the mid-range smartphone has also been modified: It has a higher resolution while providing more space...

very good casing quality ; excellent screen ; good telephony functionality ; accurate touchscreen ; low temperature development ; micro-SD slot ; NFC & USB-OTG ; decent speaker ; very long battery life

camera's low-light performance ; no notification LED ; no 5 GHz WiFi ; no Miracast or MHL support ; casing's slippery back ; non-removable battery

Samsung's reiteration of the Galaxy A3 holds many advantages. One is the stiff casing's high-quality build that tactually convinces with rounded glass at the edges and a metal bezel. Drawbacks of this design are the non-removable battery and the...

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) Review


Being obsessed top tech brands' flagship devices, we sometimes forget that not all people need a phone with a gigantic screen, the fastest processor, or the latest camera technologies. In reality, there are still folks who look for a simpler phone –...

Beautifully designed for its class ; Compact, easy to operate with one hand ; Bright screen with great color accuracy (in Basic mode) ; Good video quality

Main camera is slow to focus ; Poor low-light performance from both cameras ; Occasional lags and slowdowns ; Still behind on software updates

I suppose we all have that friend who wouldn’t care what hardware or operating system goes into a phone. As long as it looks pretty, they’ll get it. That’s the kind of people who will be drawn by the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016), as its gorgeous design and...

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) review


The Samsung Galaxy A3 2016-edition is probably our favourite mid-range phone! We doubt that you'll find another compact premium handset this good for less than £300. Sleek metal-and-glass looks give the new A3 killer looks, and it packs in a high spec...

The Galaxy A3 2016-edition fits a tightly-defined niche. It's perfect if you want a compact phone with premium looks, but don't want to spend silly money on a flagship phone. Asked by Graham from UK on 26th Sep 2016 Reply Asked by Alan from UK on 9th...

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) review: The S6 Mini in disguise


It's expensive, but the tiny Galaxy A3 2016 beats every other mid-range smartphone when it comes to looks and battery life

That said, if you're not really bothered by which version of Android you have and you've been desperately waiting for Samsung's next, true 'mini' phone, then you really can't get much better than the Galaxy A3 2016. It may be a little expensive right...

Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 review


The Galaxy A3 is the entry model in Samsung's mid-range A series, which comprises the Galaxy A3, A5 and A7. Samsung has given the Galaxy A3 a lot of love and attention in its 2016 update - but has it done enough? We review the Samsung Galaxy A3 2016.

The all-new Samsung Galaxy A3 for 2016 is a great upgrade over the 2015 model with an excellent design and very good battery life. It’s priced higher than its faster rivals, but Samsung phones tend to rapidly drop in price - exactly how much the price...

Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 Review: In Depth


Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) Review: We review the new 2016 edition of Samsung's mid-range mini mobile, the 4.7-inch Galaxy A3.

Seriously good battery life ; Comfortably small ; Strong optics

Camera struggles in low light ; No processor update

Samsung’s Galaxy A3 2016 is essentially a mini Galaxy S6, boasting excellent battery life, strong optics and a great media experience, all wrapped up in a compact and gorgeous 4.7-inch package. If you want a mini mobile or simply can’t afford Samsung’s...

Like small screens? The 4.7-inch Samsung's new Galaxy A3 will be your cup of tea (hands-on)


Samsung's Galaxy A range of smartphones is designed for a younger, trendier crowd who can't afford its higher end flagships, such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Announced late last year, the updated 2016 versions of these phones sport metal bodies...

The 4.7-inch display is only in HD resolution -- that's 1,280x720 pixels -- and is hardly anything to shout about, while the phone also lacks a fingerprint scanner. It is, however, a nice comfortable size that's easy to hold and use with one hand.

The Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) mobile phone has been succeeded by the 2017 version but is still available to buy - and it's cheaper. Is it still worth considering? Our results show that this smartphone handles the basics well by offering good call...

Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 Review


The Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 is a solid update for Samsung's entry-level A model. It's as stylish as ever and even has a good battery, but its specs aren't quite a match for some of its rivals".

+ Beautiful build ; + Good battery life ; + Decent screen

- Average performance ; - Average camera ; - Somewhat pricier than some of its rivals

The Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 is an above average mid-range phone in the body of a flagship. If you’re after premium looks but not a premium price then this is the phone for you. It’s also a great choice if you value long battery life.
