Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) unboxing and first look

3

The Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) is the new affordable small phone around. It's not quite iPhone SE sized, but it also does not have a tiny display: the new A3 (2017) comes with a reasonably compact 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display and a flagship grade glass-and-metal design with water resistance.

And it's just landed in our office! This means it's time to quickly unbox it to see what is inside this minimalistic white Samsung box and take a first look at the phone itself.

But first, let's take a quick look at the specs of this here Galaxy A3 (2017): under the hood, it runs on the Exynos 7 Octa chip built on a power-efficient manufacturing technology with 2 GB of RAM, and it has a rather limiting 16GB of storage that you can luckily expand via microSD cards. The battery is a 2,350 mAh cell that is non-removable and the phone supports the newest USB-C port for charging. On the back, there is a 13-megapixel camera with an f/1.9 lens, while up front you have an 8MP front camera.

With this in mind, let's take a look at what is...

Inside the box:

  • Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) model SM-A320F
  • User Manual
  • Sim ejector tool
  • USB-A to USB-C cable
  • White Samsung earbuds with replaceable rubber tips
  • Adaptive Fast Charging wall charger (7.75 watts peak, 5V and 1.55A)

The news here is that you get a pretty complete package in the box with everything you need. The phone itself does not seem to support the fastest charging tech, but it also has a smaller battery, which means that the built-in 7.75-watt wall charger should charge the phone in a relatively small period of time. You can check out our full unboxing and first look at the Galaxy A3 (2017) in the video right above and do stay tuned for our full review coming up soon.
