Design & Display

Show your true colours

Visuals really pop on the 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display – photos, videos and games boast vibrant, true-to-life colours.

Sleek style

A slim, sleek design makes sure the J3 not only looks good but slips perfectly into your bag or pocket.

Camera

Expose your creative side

It’s easy to snap the perfect picture – you can quickly adjust the exposure when you pick a focus point to make your photo brighter.

HDR like a pro

Putting an end to contrasting bright skies and dark foreground, HDR snaps three images at different exposures and sandwiches them together to create the perfect image.

Under the hood

Performance you can rely on

The J3 has a quad-core processor that runs at a nippy 1.2GHz giving you reliable performance to quickly switch between apps.

Replaceable battery

Enjoy reliable all-day battery performance with up to 22 hours talk time. Plus, the battery can be easily replaced if you run out of juice.

Other features

Expandable storage

Expand the on-board storage by popping in a microSD card, which will let you enjoy your favourite music, photos, and games when you’re on the go.

Simplify things

For when you want to keep things simple the Easy Mode lets you get to your favourite apps and contacts quickly. It makes the phone more user friendly with fewer, larger icons, and simpler app interactions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cloud Computing Smartphone J3 8GB 2016 Without Prejudice: It would seem that I purchased this J3 2016 Smartphone in 2016 and it would seem that I have been seriously in difficulties with using the Cloud Computing Facilities on Device Handset and the Storage Facilities on the Smartphone "Heavily Restricted even when an SD-CARD Installed". It would seem that "the 8GB Device Storage Impinges-on SD-CARD Storage and Applications Management in the Settings for Smartphone: Detrimentally". Without Prejudice: January-2018
