The curved edges makes the device comfortable to hold, The Galaxy J3 fits perfectly in the palm as it measures 142.3 x 71 x 7.9mm. The phone features brushed metal frame and a leather-like plastic on the back of the device.
Display & Camera
The device features a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display that offers enhanced visual experience and lets you enjoy realistic videos. The display is legible under direct sunlight, the viewing angles are best in class too. It is the best display in its price range. Unfortunately, there is no Gorilla Glass protection, therefore, it is advised to handle the device carefully and protect it from falling. The imaging is handled by a 8-megapixel rear-facing camera paired with an LED flash to aid in dull conditions. The primary camera can record full-HD videos. Handling the selfies and video calls is the 5-megapixel front-facing camera which is also equipped with LED flash to help in dark conditions.

The galaxy device comes loaded with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop unlike the J5 and J7, which come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It is customised by Samsung’s TouchWiz UI featuring S Bike mode to help you while driving. There is also Ultra Data Saving mode to help you save on data consumption, therefore, helping you save your money. The Galaxy J3 (2016) is powered by a quad-core Spreadtrum chipset with a clock speed of 1.5 GHz. To allow users to work on multiple apps at the same time, the smartphone is paired by 1.5GB of RAM. For storage, the device hosts 8GB of internal storage space, which is the lowest amount of storage you can get in the mobile devices at this price range. Samsung could have opted for more internal storage but the storage can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card.

Can I play high end games in this device?
J3 device has a low RAM, i.e., 1.5GB and the internal memory is also only 8GB which is not even sufficient for the high-end games. But even after you expand the memory and load the games, there are more chances where the phone will get slow, and the battery will drain in a very short time. You can play normal games like Subway Surfers or Temple Run. Let me know if you have any further questions; I would be happy to assist you with the same.
By balchandani.kamalkishor, 32 months ago
Mark Helpful (322)
No, because it has only 1.5 GB RAM. To play high end games, a mobile needs minimum 2 GB RAM.
By mkmkdarkmoon, 26 months ago
Mark Helpful (125)
It depends on the GB or MB of the game. I am playing 2GB game without any difficulty.
By yasinkhakhu, 32 months ago
Mark Helpful (139)
Yes, of course.

How is the battery backup of this phone?
It's decent and would last throughout the day. Turning the hotspot and GPS consumes the battery fast, but if you are just using the phone for connecting to the internet and using it normally, then the battery on this device would surely last for a day.
By dashrathmandal08, 20 months ago

The overall performance of J3 is good. Its battery backup is also good.
By fauzanhashim99, 21 months ago

Very good battery backup for 5 hours with the music on.

What is different between marshmello and lolipop?
Marshmallow is an upgraded version of Android OS system. It's faster than Lolipop and gives advanced features, battery saver, smooth buffering and has low heating problem. So marshmallow is better than Lollipop, but the latest version is Nougat 7.0.1.
By mahendrajat666, 26 months ago
Mark Helpful (204)
It is the latest version with security patches, advanced features, Android lock feature, etc. Android will support it for more time than Lollipop.
By u.awasthi45, 26 months ago

How is the performance , will it hang more often?
Hanging issues are common for all smartphones. But this new version and latest technology don't make us feel too hanging. As in my case, until now I didn't experience any hanging issues.
By yasinkhakhu, 32 months ago
Mark Helpful (191)
No, it does not hang. Any mobile hangs because of full of phone memory.
By mkmkdarkmoon, 26 months ago
Mark Helpful (115)
No hanging. It is good for the price at Rs. 8000/-, it's worth.
By rafi.acn, 33 months ago
Mark Helpful (131)
No, it hangs as much Samsung hangs.
By 28ankitsingh, 25 months ago
