This Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) is my first Samsung device, but will not be my last! Samsung has accomplished a much higher level of security features that do not drag down speed, battery life. I am not altogether familiar with KNOX except what I have just currently read, but I am impressed. With newly installed apps getting checked and an ongoing phone services monitoring all without sacrificing functionality, is well above what other phone manufacturers are even close to offering. This particular phone only has 1/2gb more in RAM than my other two devices (which are slow), but I have not been able to expeience ANY wait times in browsing, apps loading, etc.... I would feel safe using this phone even without an anti-virus product!
