What has the Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 got to offer?

  • 4.7-inch Super AMOLED screen
  • Water-resistant
  • 13-megapixel front and 8-megapixel back camera
  • 16GB of storage, compatible with MicroSD cards
  • Fast processor

Bright screen

The Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The display is Super AMOLED, rather than LCD, which makes the colours more vivid.

Great performance

The Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 is powered by a brand-new octa-core Exynos 7870 CPU and comes loaded with 2GB of RAM to keep it running smoothly.

Decent battery life

The 2350mAh battery should survive a whole day of normal use. And when you do need to boost the battery, it charges quickly, so it won’t be long before you’re up and running again.

Reasonable storage

The Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 comes with 16GB of storage. If you need more than that, you can always add a MicroSD card to boost it up to a whopping 256GB.

Water-resistant

Samsung’s Galaxy A3 2017 has a higher IP rating than the iPhone 7 at IP68. This means that the phone can handle being immersed in five feet of water for as much as 30 minutes.

13-megapixel front and 8-megapixel back cameras

The Galaxy A3 2017 has a 13-megapixel main camera that has f/1.9 aperture, which allows you to capture some decent bokeh effects and helps with low-light performance. It’s also got optical image stabilisation technology for minimising camera-shake.

Around the front, there’s an 8-megapixel camera for detailed selfies and FaceTime video calls.
