Samsung Galaxy A3




Samsung Galaxy A3 Overview

Samsung Galaxy A3
The Galaxy A3 is a smartphone that does the talking for you. Part of Samsung's new premium design 'A series', and one of their thinnest ever models, the A3 delivers class at an affordable price.

At just 6.9 mm and built with a premium metal unibody construction, you could be forgiven for thinking the Galaxy A3 is part of a high-price, high-end flagship range.

In fact this sleek, smart experience is less than half the price of the ever-popular S range, yet manages to provide incredible value with an excellent specification sure to satisfy the a large majority of people.

The tidy lines and soft touch finish are also sure to strike a chord with fashion conscious individuals or even those just looking for a functional and modern upgrade .

Inside the A3 you'll find the latest generation of Qualcomm's mid-range quad-core processors, the 410. This has the capabilitiy to run all your favourite apps or games without any slowdown and can effectively multitask.

Add to this a high resolution qHD Super AMOLED screen and 8 Megapixel camera, and you have a handset that can both take and display images as beautiful as it looks.

Samsung's Adaptive Display technology also allows for the screen to subtly change contrast levels depending on your surroundings, making it easier to view and read when changing from light to dark, or inside to outside.

Camera performance is hugely desirable and the A3 ensures every box is ticked, not just with a top-quality 8 MP main camera but also a 5 MP front-facing unit. With added features such as Wide Selfie, Palm Selfie, Animated GIF and Beauty Face, sharing your perfect selfies and snaps with friends across social networks has never been easier.

Add some Samsung specific apps including Ultra-Power Saving Mode to keep your battery lasting longer, Private Mode, so you can show your phone off or pass it to the kids without unwanted eyes on your profiles, and Multiscreen, for proper multitasking.
