The Samsung Galaxy A3 is a good-looking smartphone that’s perfect for taking and sharing photos with family and friends.
Samsung has done it again with a low cost, all metal unibody smartphone. This device has got a mix of specs and features that make it an interesting entrant into the smartphone market and whether it is going to be a success or not is yet to be seen. Here, we look at the specs and features that come with this new device as well as some of the reviews about it and benefits as well as drawbacks of the all new Samsung Galaxy A3.
Full Specifications Of Samsung Galaxy A3:
The A series is very different from the company’s S series smartphones. If the S series phones have a mostly plastic build, the A series phones have a sleek aluminum body and a very slim look. The Galaxy A3 measures 5.12 x 2.58 x 0.27 inches and weighs 3.89 ounces. The home key is up front, the lock key is on the right, and the volume rocker is on the left of the device.
Display and Features
The Galaxy A3 comes fitted with a 4.5 inch qHD Super AMOLED display carrying a resolution of 960×540 pixels. We expect the panel to be more suitable for those who want no compromise on basic tasks such as watching videos, playing games and browsing internet among others.
The Galaxy A3 is based on Android 4.4 Kitkat and comes with connectivity such as 4G LTE/ 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. Like the A5, this one also comes with Private Mode, Multi-Screen and adjustable audio.
Camera and Internal Storage
The Galaxy A3 boasts of an 8 MP primary camera onboard that is teamed up with LED Flash for better low light performance and FHD 1080p video recording abilities. The front facing 5 MP shooter is also suitable for good quality selfies.
Internal storage is 16 GB as in the Galaxy A5 and it can be further expanded by another 64 GB using a micro SD card. On the whole, this capacity should suffice for the users to store all the necessary content.
Processor and Battery
The Galaxy A3 makes use of a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor as in its bigger kin, however the difference is that this processor is aided by 1 GB of RAM in the Galaxy A3 instead of 2 GB of RAM that is more efficient. This combination should be capable of rendering a moderate performance expected from a mid-ranger undoubtedly.
Battery capacity is 1,900 mAh that appears to be too low for a mid-ranger, but the smartphone comes with the Ultra Power Saving Mode feature that can enhance the backup.
The Samsung Galaxy A3 comes with the right set of specifications being a mid-ranger, but the handset appears to have some shortcomings such as a not so good battery and a high resolution screen.
