Overview

Samsung Galaxy A3

The Samsung Galaxy A3 goes well beyond what you’d expect from a lower mid-range handset, with looks fit for a flagship, and a strong selection of specs and features.

The Galaxy A3 has a perfectly formed 7.9mm thick shell, with a glass back and a metal frame, giving it all the style of the much more expensive Samsung Galaxy S7. Just like that phone it’s also water and dust resistant.

It’s also got one of Samsung’s famous screens, using Super AMOLED technology for bright and vivid visuals across its compact 4.7-inch display, at a crisp 720p resolution.

There’s a surprising amount of power tucked away too, with an octa-core processor and 2GB of RAM making the A3 a snappy performer.

And speaking of snaps, you’ll be able to take great ones with its 13MP rear camera and 8MP front-facing one.

The Samsung Galaxy A3 also benefits from a fingerprint scanner for high-tech security, and a microSD card slot, so you can store all your content on the phone.
