Samsung Galaxy A3 Review

Samsung galaxy A3 is considerably a middle class price smart phone that one can own. It was announced and released in December 2015 and has sold well in Europe, America and now most parts of the world.

Samsung Galaxy A3 seems to scale up well with majority of the latest phones in the market. The standard camera for middle class smart phone should be at least 8MP, here Galaxy A3 ranks well with 13MP at a resolution of 1080pixels. The 5MP camera is pretty good for selfies. We have made a general observation that samsung phones produce more clear photos as compared to other brands with the same camera pixels.

In terms of quality and durability, samsung galaxy A3 is good. The screen has been fitted with gorilla glass screen guard to prevent the screen from damaging easily.  The compactness of this phone seems good with a 5.3 by 2.5 inches allows it to comfortably be used by one hand and also fit into the pocket well.

Storage-wise, samsung galaxy A3 is okay, the 1.5GB and 16GB internal storage is satisfactory for one to store files and can handle tasks well powered by quad-core 1.5 cortex cpu.

While the portability of this phone is fine, you may want to consider getting a phone with a bigger screen for gaming and watching movies, In this case, find phones 5.5 and 5.7 inch screen size.

Another issue is on the battery, most phones entering the market appear to be having 3000mAh as opposed to A3's battery which is 2300mAh.
