Build and Screen

Although aimed at the budget segment of the market, Samsung Galaxy J3 does look appealing with its nicely rounded edges. It treads the middle ground between being thick and thin at 7.9 millimetres and weighs about 138 grams.

The device sports an impressive 5-inch Super AMOLED display with an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, which means you may be right to expect significantly enjoyable viewing experience on this one.

Camera and Storage

The Galaxy J3 features an 8-megapixel rear camera for some good quality images and videos. There is also a capable 5-megapixel sensor on the front for your selfies and video calling needs. However, you only get a rather low onboard storage of 8 GB, a portion of which would have been taken up by system resources.

The good news in term of storage, though, is that the onboard storage is expandable by up to 128 GB via the microSD card slot.

Performance and OS

A quad-core processor clocked at a speed of 1.2 GHz gets things running smoothly from under the hood. The CPU is partnered with a manageable 1.5 GB of RAM which should enable a bit enjoyable level of multitasking.
