Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime – Is it just another entry-level phone?

Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime – Come for the price, stay for the reliability!

Samsung is the most trusted smartphone brand, while its Note 7 debacle might have damaged its reputation for a brief time, the South Korean company grew back its trust with its marvellous offerings last year with S8 and Note 8. And this year they have an S9 duo to thank. They are the pioneer when it comes to high-end premium flagship phones. But the brand is still far behind in competition when it comes to entry-level segment. And that is why the company may just introduce a sub-5000 Rs smartphone, which will go by the name, Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime.

Are you ready for the big reveal?

What big reveal?

To find out about the amazingly powerful specifications of the Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime.

Ohh! Really?

Didn’t they try several times to beat Xiaomi in the segment?

They tried and failed!

Let’s find out whether this time would be the same as other times.

Why should you not buy Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime in India?

For the price it is suggested for to be released we believe it is still not a good handset. Let’s take a look at the specifications.

> Poor Camera: Even for sub-5000 bucks a 5MP rear camera is just not good enough. Despite sporting a f/1.9 aperture, which Samsung flaunts on their website, isn’t a good smartphone camera when brands like Xiaomi offers a 13MP rear camera.

> Bad Performer: Sporting a 1.6 GHz Quad-core processor was fine until we learned that it comes with a 1.5GB RAM. And there is only 16GB internal storage most of which is acquired by the OS and the bloatware that Samsung offers on their TouchWiz UI.

If you’re a first time user and have heard good things about Samsung, and doesn’t care for camera or multitasking, as you should know by now it’s not a good camera phone, or a multitasker either. Despite all these, you’re looking for reasons to buy this Samsung mobile. Then, fortunately for you, there are a couple of features on this that are on par with industry standards.

> Decent Display: A 5-inches display embraces the presence on this entry-level Samsung phone. It sports a 1280 x 720-pixel resolution, which is not bad. But don’t expect good viewing angles on this one. Also, the colour vibrancy is not to trust, since the absence of AMOLED panel.

> Good Battery Life: There is a 2600 mAh capacity battery running the show. It may sound a low capacity, but with optimized processor and interface, expect a day’s battery life easily, as claimed by the brand.

The question really comes down to what are your priorities when it comes to smartphone usage. If that is fulfilled by the Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime, then, you may go ahead with this, otherwise, it won’t be a wise decision.
