Good phone for teen or cost conscious buyer.

I bought this phone after losing my S5 Active. I didn't want to commit to the Next program and get into debt and I didn't want to spend $500 or more to buy out right. So I got this on the $6/mo Next plan so i could try it out.
Overall the phone does exactly what you would expect. It is lightweight, and has a good screen on it. This phone reminds me a lot of the S3 that I used to have. If you want to cash out a phone or pay a low monthly, this might be a good option.
On the down side, it doesn't have a whole lot of power to push all of the latest games and apps like you would hope. Also, this would not work with my Bluetooth Samsung Gear S watch. This phone will not support the Gear manager app. So my watch is of no use. It also would not pair with my Bluetooth headphones so using this at the gym or around the house to listen to music is a no go.
I am a high demand user of the phone for work and play. I will probably be upgrading to the S7 afterall. But, if you are not a high demand user and cost conscious, this is a good option.

Better than I thought it would be
Posted by: Fred from: on
The obvious reason to get this phone is the price. Anyone looking for a budget phone will have trouble finding a cheaper one. But that doesn't mean that it's a bad phone. It is missing some things that my previous phones have had. No light sensor to dim the screen at night or brighten it when outside. No notification light blinking when I've missed a call or text. And it isn't as fast as my previous phones. These are all things I can live without for the price point. The screen is gorgeous, definitely the best feature of the device. It has a replaceable battery and is expandable with a microSD card. All of my apps run well, they just might take a little longer to load. Plenty of cases to choose from. I'm very happy with this purchase.

better than windows 7.8
Posted by: Cherrie from: on
got 2 of these phones, one for each of my children and they both love it. My daughter had a windows 7.8 phone still before this one and my son had an android, but it had very little memory so this one is better quality than both of those. The only snafu I have had with these phones are not the phones fault, one of the people who set it up for me put my son's account on a different plan than what we were on so I have to pay extra for the time it was on that plan for messaging and data usage. (which thank goodness I found out the next day and he doesn't go crazy on his phone).

I bought this cellphone without a number and the company AT&T unlocked it as quickly as they could I'm really impressed about this and the product, for that price it was a great purchase!

Great bang for your buck

Great bang for your buck. My note 3 died and the next nots will be coming out so i purchased this for the mean time. Not a great camera, but it does everything I need. I may actually keep this and wait another year

Great 'Starter' Smart Phone!
Posted by: interscope21 from: on
This Galaxy J3 is sort of a downgrade to the S5, but functionally it runs just as fast due to newer technology. Size is similar, and functions are similar. If you are looking for a decent 'starter' smart phone, this would be it!

Great phone for price
Posted by: Sojourner from: on
Almost as good as the higher end Samsung phones without a lot of extra junk you don't need.

Great phone for the money
Posted by: SuperBuyer123 from: Worcester, MA on
I am very pleased with this phone. This is the best low cost phone. You will not find a better phone for the money. 16 gig of internal memory is great for apps.

Great Starter Smart Phone

This Samsung phone is pretty snappy and doesn't seem to hold any punches. The camera is great too!

My first smartphone
Posted by: dlhouse from: on
This phone is quite similar to the Galaxy S6 owned by my wife and one of my daughters, but is comparatively inexpensive. Serves all my needs well. Only drawback is the camera is not as good as the one on the S6.
