Samsung Galaxy A3 review

 

Flagship looks without the price

Galaxy S7-like design ; Excellent battery life ; Water and dust resistant

720p display underwhelms ; Samsung software still sub-par ; Camera yields mixed results

Samsung has created another solid mid-range smartphone contender, and this one looks and feels more like its high-end brothers than ever.

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) Review: In Depth

 

The 2017 A3 is an enticing recipe comprised of Galaxy S7-inspired style with the screen size of an iPhone 7. We've taken an in depth look at the new A3.

Smooth performance ; Well designed UX ; Premium design ; Great battery life

Out-performed by similarly priced phones ; Low internal storage ; Fingerprint magnet ; Outdated OS

Despite its standing in the company’s current product lineup, for the most part, Samsung hasn’t skimped on quality with this mid-ranger. Its design and build quality are unquestionably excellent with useful inclusions like water resistance, USB-C and a...

Samsung Galaxy A3 review (2017): An intriguingly affordable Galaxy S8 alternative

 

Stray away from the Samsung Galaxy S8 and you'll find a fantastic budget alternative in 2017's Galaxy A3

Affordable flagship alternative ; Fantastic camera ; long-lasting battery life

Long list of similarly-priced rivals

It has a great screen, top battery life, an excellent camera and, most importantly, a very reasonable price indeed. The competition may be stiff, with Honor, Motorola and Lenovo already pushing out impressive, low-priced alternatives, but at £237,...

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) Smartphone Review

 

Striking Update. Samsung's latest reincarnation of its hip mid-range Galaxy A3 smartphone not only features an updated glass and metal unibody design but also significant improvements under the hood, for example increased processing power and improved...

high-quality workmanship ; water and dustproof (IP68) ; USB Type-C port with USB-OTG ; LTE, NFC, 802.11 ac Wi-Fi ; very bright well-adjusted AMOLED display ; decent camera ; decent performance ; stays cool ; good speaker ; very good battery life

smooth and slick back side ; only LTE Cat. 4 ; no Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) ; no dual SIM ; no optical image stabilization ; PWM-flicker

There is little to no need for an upgrade for those who already own last year's Galaxy A3 (2016). With its similar build quality, this year's model does have a few advantages, though. The Galaxy A3 (2017) is a far cry from reinventing the wheel;...

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) Review

 

For a third time in a row, Samsung starts the year by releasing three new mid-range phones of the Galaxy A series, and the 2017 edition of the lineup is the most impressive yet. Samsung has made three phones that have an exceptional look and feel, just...

Amazing design: beatiful glass-metal look, thin and comfortable, ergonomic ; Water resistance is a great extra ; Excellent battery life ; Very good image quality in daylight ; Excellent on-screen keyboard, great typing experience ; Support expandable...

A bit more expensive than other phones its class ; Only 16GB of on-board storage ; Lack of video stabilization results in very shaky videos ; Runs on a 1-year-old Android version (6.0 Marshmallow)

The Galaxy A3 (2017) is such an exciting phone: it brings a level of sophistication in design and interface that we have not yet seen on affordable phones. Neither have we seen a phone with water resistance.

Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 review

 

The Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017 edition) is a compact and slim smartphone with a stunning unibody design. With a decent processor, excellent screen and good camera, only the battery life is below average. The price has now fallen considerably, making it...

If you're looking for a compact Android smartphone, you'll struggle to find anything better than the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017). It's a beautifully-designed phone with a stunning screen, decent mid-range performance, and a good camera. Asked by Sue from...

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 (2017) review: the mid-range phone that thinks it's a flagship

 

Aside from a few downsides, the Galaxy A3 (2016) managed to put in such a convincing performance last year it easily became a signature mid-range device. Samsung is hoping to repeat the experience, and so is looking again to release a new version of...

Samsung wants to (re)conquer the hearts of users and still win the favor of the masses. By offering a waterproof smartphone with fingerprint sensor, a very elegant design and a SIM + microSD for a competitive price, it's definitely going to attract a...
