Everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy J3 2016

Product Information

Why choose the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016)?

Challenging the limits of budget smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) is a reliable device with a variety of standout features, including an impressive 8MP camera, a vibrant AMOLED display and powerful quad-core processor. Streaming videos, playing games or multitasking using multiple apps isn’t a problem for this hardy little device.

Design

Samsung Galaxy J3 2016

The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) is available in sleek black, modern white or elegant gold and measures 5.6 x 2.8 x 0.31 inches. This compact device fits in the palm of the hand perfectly and weighs only 138g. The slim, curved design gives the J3 a premium feel and enables it to slide discreetly into a pocket or bag.

The super 5-inch AMOLED display boasts true-to-life colours – ideal for viewing photos or playing fast-paced games with ease.

Tech Specs

It’s what’s on the inside that counts and the J3 (2016) doesn’t disappoint in this department. A mighty Quad-Core 1.2GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8 or 16GB of storage, and the potential to expand to 128GB of memory with a Micro SD card ensures this device can handle regular activity and heavier-hitting apps with ease.

The J3 runs on Android’s 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system, and includes a removable 2600mAh battery that provides a 349-hour standby battery life, promising up to 22 hours of talk time, 77 hours of music and 14 hours of video streaming.

Camera

Samsung Galaxy J3 2016

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) users can enjoy a generous 8MP rear facing camera and 5MP front camera – perfect for selfies and snaps! The quick launch feature gives you access to the camera in seconds, making sure you’ll never miss a moment.

There are also a range of other great added features built into the Samsung camera, including autofocus, face detection, geotagging and more.

Stand Out Features

This phone really is suitable for everyone, and Samsung’s Easy Mode makes the smartphone accessible to even those most inexperienced technology users. This mode simplifies the Android process, standardising the home screens by providing larger and fewer icons, but still leaving room for customisation.

Round-up

The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) is amongst one of our cheapest pay monthly contract deals. The inexpensive tariff certainly doesn’t reflect the device’s quality, which excels thanks to an ultra HD display, an impressive chipset and a brilliant camera that combine to continuously deliver a remarkable Samsung mobile experience. With specs to challenge higher-range devices, the new J3 handset is an accessible device that’s not to be missed.
