Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Phone I bought this phone a month after it was released. At first I wasn't sure about it but now I'm glad I bought it with good battery life and good performance and design but youcould have added a fingerprint sensor but at least it comes for a good price

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A smart looking phone but too susceptible to moisture BEWARE of this MODEL!!! Got the phone as part of a new contract, just before the A3 2017 came out...BIG MISTAKE!! When I got the phone at first, it looked smart, nice screen, took great pics and performed well. Then just a few weeks ago (4 months into new contract), I put the phone in my coat pocket during a heavy rain shower and although the phone was NOT wet, the swipe screen stopped working. Phone provider claims it is water damaged and will not repair it as NOT COVERED UNDER warranty! I now have a phone that does not work, a contract I am tied into for another 20 months and a battle to find out why this phone is SOOOO susceptible to the English weather when other Samsung phones in the past have coped quite well. It is not as though I dropped it into water. When I send emails to Samsung all I get from them is to send it off for investigation, but this is likely to be a costly repair and is it worth it for a phone that is so last year! At least with the A3 2017 if you drop it in water it is IP68 rated and so Samsung cannot claim the warranty is invalid if it is exposed to water!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from samsung a3 2016 is truly a great phone I wanted to get a samsung smartphone which is new,compact and have most top features. That's when i came across samsung a3 2016 which looked amazing with its metallic frame and glass back. The phone pretty much met my expectation which was truly satisfying. Moreover it is a great budget phone,especially for all those top quality specs such as 13mp front camera,quad core proccessor,corning gorilla glass 4,android 6.0.1 OS and much more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish Phone The screen feels great, phone is light and works quickly! Nicest option for a smaller Android phone that I could find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought as a gift. Would do so again. I bought this as a gift for my wife but I hope people will agree this review is very close to first hand. She loves this phone. Feels quality. Styling great. Battery life excellent - I know since she always forgets to charge her phone so now it is only every second day she asks "have you seen my charger?". She has loaded it up with all her apps and no complaints of being slow. The photos she sends me are crystal clear. So that's about it - great phone for yourself or a gift in my opinion.
