samsung galaxy a3 2017 review

Samsung has recently unveiled their 2017 Galaxy A series in a grand event in Malaysia. Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 is the smallest and is also expected to be cheapest one in the series but that does not imply that A3 is deprived of any cool specification rather the newly launched smartphone has a lot to offer to the users.

From IP68 certification for water as well as dust resistance to the all new fingerprint scanners, the Galaxy A3 has been equipped with all the cool features that a mobile phone requires to get the attention of the customers. The all new smartphone runs on Android 6.0 and it has a stylish metal body that plays a huge role in making it more attractive. It is available in different colours so pick your own for creating a fashion statement.
Since it is the smallest one in the series, the screen size is only 4.7 inch and it uses a super AMOLED display of 720p. This all new Galaxy smartphone is equipped with a 1.6GHz octa-core and also sports a 13MP back as well as an 8MP front camera. The Galaxy A3 uses a 2GB RAM, and have 16GB internal storage along with a 2350mAh battery.

Although the specifications of Galaxy A3 is much lower than the other smartphones of the A series but we cannot simply deny that A3 is one of the finest gifts that Samsung has planned for their worldwide customers.
