Didn't this phone receive android 13 update @GSMarena...
Somehow this phone is too slow to even type properly on a keyboard. If someone had described how laggy, unreliable, and poorly made this phone was to me before I got it, I'm not sure that I would have even believed them. This is by far the worst phone I have ever seen, let alone used.
I bought this phone as the lowest price on the shelf at Wal-Mart. I literally got what I paid for. Twice I have accidentally had it damaged on the screen after it fell. That's been $140 for those. Now lately it has been freezing up or crashing on me. A few moments ago it froze on a YouTube video and I had to unbend a paper clip to stick into the hole at the bottom, because none of the buttons would respond. This is on top of how touch sensitive this thing is; if it were a human, it would either be having an orgasm every two minutes or would be under psychiatric care of some kind. Of course when I NEED to touch something on it to work, at least five times out of ten that doesn't happen.
This phone is terrible, this is why I try not to buy lowest cost price off the shelf. I'm paying for my misdeeds with it now.
The most dumb thing about it is how they make even these garbage ultra-budget phones so monstrous in size nowadays. 16,5cm for what? It's only 270ppi, Samsung, what are you smoking. You won't be gaming and enjoy content comfortably with this trash. Jesus... At least make it tiny so people could use it just as a simple and handy gadget for calls.

ny a03s get android 13 and one ui 5 update.. still stable and playable for gaming..
I work for a big phone provider compagny in canada and many customer ( maybe all ) with this phone hate it , lag on EVERYTHING , samsung need to put better specs and sell it 40-50 bucks over... a brand new samsung at 150$ is unreal..
This phone is absolute garbage. Don't waste your money. This thing is ridiculously slow. More often than not, it takes upwards of 5 seconds to wake the phone or even to return to the home screen when you hit the home button. This was a terrible purchase that I whiole heartedly regret.
Horrible phone. Laggy, slow, not enough memory. I wouldn't expect anything from Samsung to be this bad. I also have an A14 5G. It's actually a decent phone for the price. Both were "free" with conditions. The free A14 5G only cost me $40 while the horrible A03s was about $56, both "free" with activation.
It is bad for my case. Laggy, Android 13 or One UI 5.1 Core. 64/4 but tbn no NFC, wanna throw it away. Slow, bad mic (but usable), bad cam quality (bad than J5 Prime, my alt phone). Have no more words to say.
It's simply the worst. When I first got it, 2 days in, It would cut off the video audio for about 50-75% of the video and then after it would warble the noise, and has been ever since!! I've used other phones (Mostly Hand-Me-Down iPhones) That worked better than my current A03s Crapper!! Limited storage, super laggy, crashes instantly and randomly, and will go off on its own!! Worst Phone Ever!!
Was a really good phone when i started off, better then my Moto G Pure that i had. Unfortunately when i bought this I didn't know that it didn't support google assistance, and it took me like 2 weeks to realize that. also if you have too many apps then it starts to lag a ton, but overall really good phone for its price.
no ups compatibilty. did not know that when purchased. i have no way to transfer pictures from the phone to my desk top!

That means you get the awesome essentials, like a long-lasting battery, high-definition display and multi-lens camera, all in one of our most affordable phones.

Dmsilversoul , 13 Apr 2023Updated 5.1 and also April security updatesJust got it on May 2nd
Use only as a basic phone for call, text, and limited social media/internet - Really not even that much better than a newer Galaxy J phone for the regard of an absolute basic phone for only "dumbphone features" like call, text, notes, weather, calculator (basically anything other than extensive photo taking, extensive internet usage or gaming) I honestly would rather get a very late Galaxy J phone with FM radio cause its cheaper for what you would expect to basically be a very basic/essential phone in a body of a smartphone
