Rated 1 out of 5 by from pre installed apps and running out of storage issu This phone was supplied by vodaphone. After about 6 months The phone is saying that it out out of storage. There are loads of pre installed rubbish on this phone that cannot be removed and that storage cannot be expanded or apps moved to the sd card. The phone is saying now that some apps may not work because of this . The phone is running lollypop and has only 8 gig storage memory. Not enough for modern phones. Samsung needs to patch this phone to allow apps to be used from the additional storage card. And it needs to allow unused rubbish to be removed. Also samsung needs to stop selling phones with only 8 gig storage memory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant phone Ive had this phone for about a year now and it is just brilliant. all you need is to add an sd card (mines 64 gigs). its greatly improved with resurrection remix custom rom. it survived a drop from about a meter onto concrete on its corner (just a dint in the plastic)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous budget smart phone, pleased I purchased I have had phone about a month now, purchased as replacement for water damaged iPhone I had, very pleased with this phone, looks very smart and does everything I need it to. Does not matter that it's only 8gb as can extend up to 128gb with micro memory card. It was not clear from Manual that SIM card and memory card go in same place abover battery with sim on bottom. Thought I should mention in case someone else spends forever working it out like me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite happy! Being a Google fan, I wanted to move from iPhone to Android and Samsung was the main option. The J3 model has a reasonable price with quite good performance: the screen is big enough, the camera works fine and the Android system does many things automatically for you (Google Photos is fantastic --forget the very annoying "your iCloud is out of Space"). Consider for better performance that you may need to buy a memory card to upgrade the default 8Gb to 32Gb, 64Gb or 128Gb --I bought the 64Gb for 23 pounds in Amazon. The SIM Free is a must: are you going for a long holiday somewhere? just buy a cheap local pay-as-you-go SIM and voilà! you have a phone :) Tesco delivery was spotless as usual!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from From Alpha to J3 Excellent! Recently lost my Samsung Alpha had no insurace so got the J3 to fill the gap. Not really that much different in functions. Picture/Video quality is ok. We take out these expensive mobile phone contracts and pay a average of £600-£800 over 24 months. Buy a phone and get a sim only. I am a adult and i am happy with it. Only issue is a memory of the phone. I added a memory 32gb card however your apps run of your phone memory. So unable to download more Apps!
