Anonymous, 17 Nov 2023The best phone I've ever gotten. Still works like a charm after all these years. Samsung ... moreIt's still the most reliable phone I ever owned, Battery still lasts a day on modest use, but sadly some of the apps I need to use don't work on a3. I need to use google map regularly and it takes ages to load. 😭

Anonymous, 04 May 2023This is the best phone i ever had, all apps working fine except for the lagging web browser in... moreAgree. I've wasted a lot of money by replacing my a3 with all the latest phones. After trial-and -errors for the last 2 years I've decided that a3 is still the best phone I've owned.
It was 2 years ago when I thought my a3 was finally passing its use by date. I tried s10e, iphone 13 mini, google pixel 7a but still was using a3 as my spare.
Sadly all 3 let me down. Iphone 13 mini was great but the photos were always bluey and dark, the format had to be converted and having no fingerprint scanner was an inconvenience too. Other 2 turned out to be lemons.
Now I am back to using a3 as my main phone. It's actually better than all three. Apart from internet speed being rather slow, battery still lasts me a day, with decent camera and audio. Now I don't play games anymore the space is no issue.
To be honest, I had a samsung A3 before, it was amazing at first but the storage was getting really low, really fast.
This is the best phone i ever had, all apps working fine except for the lagging web browser in few sites lately, never crashed since i bought it in 2017, fit in all pockets, a hardware proximity sensor that never fail, 3.5 jack and micro sdcard, just uninstall and disable unused bloatware apps for keep the storage free.
Still didn't find any good replacement for this awesome phone at an affordable price.
I purchased this phone around feb 2018. It was slowing down and had minor issues, so I had stopped using it for a year and got myself an iPhone. As much as I love 5G connectivity of my new iPhone, a3 is actually a lot easier to use overall. I took it to a repair place and they fixed all the hiccups I was experiencing for free of charge. Now this phone works like a dream.
I am using it for 5 years, its the toughest phone i ve ever used... if it was 4 giga ram and 32 or 64, I would keep him forever
what person decided the best place to put the loudspeaker is on the top right of the phone? i thought the early A3 models having the loudspeaker next to the rear camera was dumb and then this exists stupid choices is why the early A3 models barely sold much units
My battery is not lasting at all what might be the cause

the best battery life ive ever had
If someone has low memory on the phone, here's what you need to do:
Settings > Apps
Then select an app you don't use e.g. PowerPoint
Click: Disable, and Uninstall Updates (3 dots upper right corner).
I was able to increase the memory from 100MB to 2.9GB by disabling all the cr^&
I don't know. Mine is constantly warning me about storage / RAM issues and I have reduced all apps / data to a minimum (everything is on a SD card now) Still gets the annoying as hell warning messages. The settings menu tells me I should have about 630MB free on internal storage (16GB) and 630 MB on RAM. Still gets the warnings, can't even take a low res picture without getting the, This really start to hget on my nerves.
Anonymous, 04 Sep 2021I just discovered you can force allow moving all installed apps to SD card in developer option... morenot certainly true, even if developer mode is turned on, there's still Samsung bloatware apps left that can't be moved, the only solution is to root the phone, i have A3 2017 almost 4 years now, and the developer option it's always on, for force app to move to micro SD. This is the only negative side of this phone too little memory, and even if you have memory card installed there's lots of bloatware apps that cannot be moved, even if in the dev option is enabled and then the force app to move to micro SD is turned on as well, the only reason i bought A71, and now A3 i'm using it as second unit
