The A3 has a front mouthed fingerprint scanner along with a sizeable 2350 mAh battery.

The Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) also comes equipped with IP68 water and dust resistance - a first of its kind feature as far as the Samsung A series is concerned. Other than that, the phone also has Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v4.2, A-GPS, NFC and ANT+ Support.

The Samsung Galaxy A3 aims to cater to mid-range buyers and provides a sleek design and a responsive touch screen to give the customers a more interactive experience. The phone is slated to hit the Indian market later this month and the new Galaxy A3 (2017) price in India is expected to be around 17,999 INR.

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) review

Samsung has created another solid mid-range smartphone contender, and this one looks and feels more like its high-end brothers than ever. It’s got an all-metal rim, a familiar curved ‘3D Glass’ back, and even a slightly shimmery effect to its front bezels. You even get IP68 certification, which means that the Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 is as resistant to water and dust ingress as its big brother.

The 3D Glass back is more than just a visual flourish-it ensures that the phone sits nicely in the curve of your hand. read more →

  • Galaxy S7-like design
  • Excellent battery life
  • Water and dust resistant
  • 720p display underwhelms
  • Samsung software still sub-par
  • Camera yields mixed results

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) Review

The new Galaxy A3 (2017) features a relatively small, 2,350 mAh battery, but let’s not forget that this battery works alongside an economical processor and a 720p display.Samsung does not include its excellent Adaptive Fast Charge wall adapter with the new A3, but the phone has also got a relatively small battery. The end result is that the phone charges in under 2 hours, slower than the fastest charging phones like the OnePlus 3T and the Galaxy S7, but still faster than the Google Pixel that supports quick charging. read more →

  • Amazing design: beatiful glass-metal look, thin and comfortable, ergonomic
  • Water resistance is a great extra
  • Excellent battery life
  • Very good image quality in daylight
  • Excellent on-screen keyboard, great typing experience
  • A bit more expensive than other phones its class
  • Only 16GB of on-board storage
  • Lack of video stabilization results in very shaky videos
  • Runs on a 1-year-old Android version (6.0 Marshmallow)

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017)

Samsung announced some seriously interesting bits of tech at CES 2017. There are gorgeous new televisions, a Chromebook designed for Android apps and, well, the less said about that gaudy gaming laptop the better. here’s a fingerprint sensor tucked beneath the physical home button and the microSD slot can expand the fairly poor 16GB internal storage.

Samsung is bringing nice additions such as a fingerprint scanner, water-resistance and USB-C to its wider phone portfolio. read more →
