Display and Design

The Samsung Galaxy A3 features a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels (qHD) and a pixel density of 245 ppi. It is the metallic unibody design which steals all the spotlight. It is one of the thinnest smartphones from Samsung with a thickness of 6.9 mm, and features a considerably low weight of 110 grams. The non-removable back cover means that the slot for accommodating SIM cards can be found on the right rim. The metallic handset is available in a host of color options including blossom pink, light blue, gold, white, black and silver.

Processor and OS

Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy A3 dons a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and paired with a 1GB RAM. This configuration lets you accomplish powerful tasks without posing any lag. It runs on the standard Android v4.4 KitKat OS dressed with TouchWIz UI. The handset is equipped with a range of Samsung's proprietary features including Ultra-Power Saving Mode, Private Mode, Multiscreen etc.

Camera and Storage

The main camera in the Samsung Galaxy A3 can capture 8MP stills, supports LED flash and digital zoom and record full HD videos at 30fps. It is the 5MP secondary snapper on the front that grabs the attention. It can capture images as wide as 100 degrees if used in the portrait mode and up to 120 degrees in the landscape mode. Features like GIF and others make the necessary changes so that you get the best selfie. It has 16GB of internal memory configurable up to 64GB.

Battery and Connectivity

The Samsung Galaxy A3 keeps the show running with a 1,900mAh Li-ion battery. It is packed with a host of powerful connectivity features like 4G LTE Cat4, Bluetooth v4.0 with ANT+ and BLE, WiFi, GPS/AGPS, GLONASS, USB port and 3G.

Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy A3 is designed to grab attention with its super slim and light unibody design completely made of metal. It comes with mid-range hardware but impresses with its high camera quality and powerful web connectivity options. The lack of an HD display is disappointing though.

    “The Galaxy A3, despite the high price, is a worthy option if you’re looking for a handy device in the mid-range segment”With its latest Galaxy A series, the Korean giant is targeting all kind of users depending upon their screen preferences. We have already taken an in-depth look at the mid-rung of the new range, the Galaxy A5, which in sync with its name, bears a screen size of 5-inches. Other members of the family don't follow the same n...

    Pros: Unibody metallic design; Decent specs; Marathon battery;

    Cons: Moderate camera and performance; No support for 4G networks; Pricey option;

    Verdict: Like all its offerings, the Chaebol is charging a premium for the Samsung Galaxy A3. The device was launched at the asking price of Rs 20,500, though now it’s available for as low as Rs 18,000. As you might have gauged from our review, the smallest...

    Overall: Bought this phone recently from a Samsung store. I've been using this for about 2 weeks and I’m pretty much in love with this phone. nWhat I like:n- Sexy and metallic unibody design (unlike the usual plastic design of Samsung)n- Gorgeous 4.5” Super AMOLED display, with Gorilla Glass 3n- Responsive touch, no lags at alln- Excellent battery lifen- Very low SAR value, about 0.34, among the lowest you’d find in any phone. iPhones have SAR values above 1.n- Noise-cancelling microphonesn- Non-removable battery – I don't like the hassle of removing the battery to insert the SIM/microSD cardn- KitKat 4.4.4 with 1 GB RAM, 16 GB of storagen- The 5 MP front camera on this phone is just outstanding. The Grand Prime also has a 5 MP camera, but the colors and the quality of images/video are far better in Galaxy A3. I've compared the front cameras of both the phones in the store. A friend also commented that my front cam was really good during a Skype video call. nnWhat I didn't like:nHonestly, there’s nothing that I dislike about this phone. I do wish the phone was slightly thicker – it’s so thin that you sometimes feel it may slip out of your hand. The volume levels are good but could have been better. And the vibration is not as strong as I'd have liked.nnAlthough the Moto G is also a good phone, it's SAR value is almost 1.5 (check the Motorola forum). The camera's on my A3 are also far better than the ones on the Moto G. As for Xiaomi Mi 4, there are so many negative reviews - I'm glad that I went for a trustworthy brand such as Samsung. nIf you're still unsure, check out the A3's review on GSMArena.
