Samsung Galaxy A3 is a very lightweight and comfortable smartphone. With its 4.7″ display, 132 g weight and 7.4mm thickness,┬áSamsung Galaxy A3 is one of the best looking and most comfortable smartphones to use. Of course, we are talking about AMOLED display here, with the 720p resolution, a downgrade from A5.┬áSamsung Galaxy A3 comes with installed Android 5.1.1 OS, which is, fortunately, upgradable to Android 7.0 (Nougat); a nice feature for this smartphone. What isn’t nice feature is the 1.5 GB of RAM here, that feels slightly underwhelming, especially for multitasking.

16 GB of internal storage also isn’t great but will do the job, since this smartphone isn’t that good for gaming, so you’ll save some space if you don’t install them. Other than that, Samsung Galaxy A3 is a great budget smartphone that looks and feels great. The highlights here are display, camera and its streamlined and lightweight design, making it sit comfortably in hand.

    The weakest phone in A series

    I've heard that the A series is good and i decided to buy Galaxy A3. I don't like its display size of just 4.7", but at least it has an HD resolution. Android 5.1.1 here is a little outdated and i hope they will post new update to at least Android 6.0.
