    Bright screen good battery life great music(Dolby Atmos) with loud volume levels great call quality really good cameras even if only an 8mp & 5mp cameras useful features fast & responsive. Equipped with an 64bit 8core Exynos processor with a dual core of a73's@1,3 + hexacore of a53's@1.3 set up paired with a Mali-G71 gpu... Geekbench 4 pro average scores of 980 for single core & 3400 for multi core scores, Antutu average scores 73,500 which is great for this so called low end phone. After changing the animation speeds in the developers options to 0 for the 1st two and .5 for the last animation option and now this phone is faster than my Moto Z2 play Samsung J7 3rd gen and my boring Essential Phone. No more carrying around a brick In my pocket and I'm amazed at what this 5inch screen phone has to offer and super satisfied!

    I moved from an old flip phone to this model. I'm getting the hang of using it and feel comfortable now answering emails and texts and doing some web browsing. Having a user guide that's can be saved and printed as a pdf helps - not all smart phones have them. That said, somethings still are not obvious, like needing to not only hit the green phone icon to answer a call but also swipe the screen (this prevents "pocket dialing" and the like but needed to be explained to me by an office colleague). Still, if you have to start somewhere, this is a decent model. comes with security built in (by knox). You will get many offers when you activate (cloud space, enhanced security, etc...). I just decline until I know what it is about.

    I purchased this for my mother and she loves it. It’s easy to use if you sit down for a day and push buttons to see were it leads you. She learned how to use it in a day. If you click something you think you should not have all you have to do is click the back arrow and you are on the home screen. Anyone who can read should be able to use this phone. All smartphone users do is read the buttons before they select them. If it’s not the app they were looking for they press the back button and click until they figure things out. Sometimes old people think young people magically know how to use smart phones. We just read & tap until we find what we are looking for.

    I told the salesman at Best Buy that I wanted a good reliable phone at a reasonable cost. The Samsung J3 is that phone. It has all the functions and upgrades that I wanted. It is easy to use and the transition from my old Galaxy S4 mini was easy to do. I love it and I love the price. Thank You Sean at Lansing Mi Best Buy for listening to my needs for a phone and recommending the Samsung J3. You courtesy and assistance in matching me with the right phone with no effort to try and oversell me on a pricier phone is appreciated.

    I have never had a cell phone so this is my first. And wow, what an easy phone to use. I still don't know much about the "cell phone world" but I bought it for talk and text only and it is great! I get really good reception everywhere I go and I am able to stay in touch with important people as well as communicate with my boss. Since he does all his business by texting it is absolutely essential. The Best Buy staff made it real easy to understand and made buying this, my first ever cell phone, fun and enjoyable. Thanks Best Buy!!!!

    Understand this phone is a for my father who is in his 80s. Its his first smart phone. I just needed something easy, with low frills, but with enough power to do what he needs it to do (answer/make calls, light web browsing, an occasional text, and maybe someday he will check email on it). It works well for him. I wouldn't buy this phone for myself, but its what he needed to take a step into the smart phone world. Phone has an Micro SD slot, and a removable battery, which is a big plus.

    I wanted a cheap phone that does everything - this phone does that perfectly. It cost me only a fraction of the price of my last phone and I can't tell the difference, other than this one has a better voice mic, so I don't have to yell into the phone anymore. I haven't had it long, so I can't speak to durability, but the screen is just as bright and clear as my last phone, I can get my emails, it takes pictures, and it accepted my old sd card, to expand the memory - super happy so far.

    Great Replacement for 6 Year Old Droid

    Excellent choice to replace my faithful, but 6 year old Droid Razor M!! Looking for a good phone of similar size (5") and function and found it in this Samsung J3v 2018 Pro. Very happy with the service at Costa Mesa Best Buy and left happy with my choice. Only reason for 4 s Stars instead of 5 is because it lacks an indicator light showing missed calls/texts, which is good to have. Love the phone so far and appreciate the excellent help in getting it set up....win/win !

    When I first purchased this phone I did not like it too much until I powered it on and I was like whoa I fell in love with it because the internet is super fast Works awesome and no matter where I'm at in my house Upstairs Downstairs or in the basement I never have to worry about it slowing down on me not only that I'm able to talk on the phone anywhere without the service cutting in and out.

    This phone fit my needs and it was some special deal and was 'free'. However, when I reviewed $40.00 Verizon plan, it added another $20.00+ dollars for a 'line access fee' plus tax and surcharges. I've been getting the same service without the line access fee for $10.00 less for 10 years from a prepaid service, so I returned phone and went back to previous service. It adds up!!

    Overall not a bad phone, but on the first night it went dead, black screen, nothing. Plugged in the charger, nothing, popped out battery and put it back in, nothing. Went back to Best Buy, sales rep popped out the battery and put it back in and it suddenly worked for him. He said phones sometimes do that. Makes no sense. Other than that it's not a bad phone.

    We got this phone for a really good price with one of the promotions. Although it doesn't have the largest screen available, it is really a good phone for the price. It has all the functions needed for a basic smartphone user. Good for younger children and senior adults!

    This is a basic smart phone thats easy to set up and use. There is a basic mode that only shows a few basic apps on the main screen which is perfect for someone who may be overwhelmed with the thought of using a smart phone. This is ideal for the elderly.

    Switching from non-smart phone, find it extremely hard to use. Uses symbols to guide user on what is to be done whereas older phone spells things out in words making it much more user friendly. Only got new phone because older phone would not stay connected to blue tooth in my car. Does that well.

    I bought this for an older person I though it would be more simple than it is. It has all the basic features. No real bells and whistles which is what I wanted. I do think it is odd that phones do not come with user manuals. Seniors have a hard time without books.

      Hey there, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. The user manual does not come in the box when purchasing the device brand new. You can access the user manual by using this link (https://bit.ly/2rtPvsP) to download a copy or you can also use this link (https://bit.ly/2Inc11O) to access the samsung simulator to get hands-on experience with your device. ^Ash Samsung

    This has been pretty easy to use and the camera is pretty good too. I went from a flip phone to this one and I haven't had any trouble adjusting to it. I got it for $7.00 a month for 2 years. Looking at others, I didn't need a ton of storage.

    I have a Galaxy S8 and purchased the J3 as a second phone for our house. It is just a slightly smaller and simpler version of the Galaxy, but has everything any typical person could want in a phone - without the huge pricetag of the Galaxy!

    After having a Galaxy S7, the J3 is a bit less slick, but functions very similarly. I don't miss most features that set the S7 apart from the J3, and I have several extra hundred dollars in the bank!

    I purchased the Samsung Galaxy J3 for my grandchild who was turning 6 years old. Even though kids are more knowledgeable when it comes to technology this model was the perfect starter phone out of all the phones I looked at.

    Bought this phone because I broke my first cell phone. don't need all the bells and whistles. I use it for communication, pictures and some apps. It doesn't run my life. Battery lasts a long time so far.
