Design and display

Show your true colours

Experience standout visuals on the 5-inch HD display. All your photos and videos will look great on the screen, which is slightly curved with 2.5D glass. 

Supreme style

With a minimalist design and smooth plastic cover, you can expect a really comfortable handheld experience with the Galaxy J3 (2017). And the camera lens now sits completely flush with the rear of the smartphone. 

Camera

Smart selfies

Capture bright and accurate selfies day and night with the 5MP front-facing lens and its LED flash. You’ll never have to fumble with the on-screen shutter button either, thanks to palm selfie – simply hold up your hand, and then close it, to activate the countdown timer. 

Improved photos

The 13MP camera will capture the perfect photo first time, every time. With a large f/1.9 aperture you’ll be able to absorb loads of light into the lens, and more light equals more colourful, accurate shots. 

Under the hood

Plenty of storage

The J3 (2017) has 16GB of internal storage available as standard, for all your favourite games, apps and music. But, if you find yourself needing more room, just add a microSD card of any size up to 256GB. 

Intelligent battery

The 2,400mAh battery will supply all day power, but Samsung’s Power Saving mode is always waiting in the wings in case you run short - able to extend your last 15% of power into hours of use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice looking phone well read lots of reviews on this phone its a mixed bag. personally. its great budget phone. But poor camera and battery life. let it down. nice looking phone great specs. found a bit laggy on certain app. its a shame because as I say its looks a baby S7. shame Samsung didn't use the camera module out of the S4.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wifi disconnecting constantly I bought this phone a couple of weeks ago and on first impression it is a lovely phone for the price. However from day 1 the wifi connection is constantly disconnecting and has to be reconnected a number of times every day , which is now quite annoying to say the least. All other devices are ok. Im afraid I will not buy Samsung again.
