Samsung Galaxy A3 overview

The Samsung Galaxy A3, along with its brother the Galaxy A5, is Samsung’s first all-metal phone to be released and it certainly packs a punch for social networking. Built with selfies in mind – the phone’s Wide Selfie, Palm Selfie and Animated GIF features will have you making the most of the 8MP camera and 5MP front camera. With the look and feel of a premium phone, the solid and well-made A3 is one of their slimmest too.

The phone boasts a bright and sharp 4.5-inch Super AMOLED screen and under the hood the quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM gives a capable performance. The Galaxy A3 also incorporates a very useful MicroSD slot to provide the option of expandable memory, which will come in handy as you rack up the number of apps, photos and videos you have. You’ll also be glad to hear that the 1,900mAh battery will keep you going all day, especially when you have the popular Samsung Ultra Power Saving Mode turned on.
