UI issues of dropping icons

tmd63 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I had a brand new A3 2016 from EE but had to return it within 14 days because the main screen would loose app icons just after the phone was restarted. I was given a replacement of the same model and this developed the same issues. The phone battery was reasonable compared to other phones I have. The screen was clear when it was used in the daytime, but when the screen dimmed at night, the contrast became poor. More grey than black, it did not dim the display well. I could not find a fingerprint scanner. Some apps were still slow loading. The construction appear good and strong, not to large but large enough. The display automatic brightness does not work correctly as it changes to a poor grey at night.

Probably the best mid-range phone

bbfl33 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I have used this phone for a about a month and I should say that it performs very good, Samsung have optimized it better than their previous mid-range phones. It doesn't lag at all. The camera is OK, the photos are a little bit bright sometimes but the quality is great. The design is more beautiful than the S series. It feels even more premium than the high-end smartphones on the market right now. It is perfect for everyday usage!

Wish it was 2GB of RAM.

Overall it is great mid-range phone probably the best right now.

Perfect Smartphone

swatikhanna has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

Its the best smartphone from all the phones that Samsung has launched till date. Batterybackup is excellent. Touch screen is amazing, its really smooth. camera is amazing, you can take the best images & the selfie shots. The best thing that I like about this A series is its finger print scanner feature. Its Sleek & slim metal body makes its the most classy & elegant smartphone.

Worth it for the price

martyleemon has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

For a mid-range phone, this has exceptional build quality, looks expensive, features a decent display, and will easily perform your standard everyday phone tasks with ease. This is inclusive of internet use, listening to music and phone calls and texts. The back camera isn't amazing but definitely decent for a mid-range device. It also features a very decent 5MP front camera for selfies. Obviously not a gaming phone, but really can't complain for the price.
It's probably the one of the best compact sized phones available in 2016.
