Overview

Samsung is by far the most successful global manufacturer of Android smartphones and tablets in the past few years. Part of that success has been in their ability to create a wide range of phones that mean there is something available for everyone.

The powerful and beautifully designed flagship Galaxy S devices might cost upwards of £600, however there are many among us for whom such an expense cannot be justified. We may not need that much power, or simply don't desire something that looks so 'flash'.

If all you're looking for is a reliable and up-to-date smartphone then the J3 has been developed for you.

It's not the cheapest smartphone available, however the Samsung brand promises a high build quality alongside lengthy support with a 24 month manufacturer's warranty.

The J3 also manages to boast a few higher quality specifications than one might expect of a phone at this price. The high definition Super AMOLED screen promises deeper blacks and a more dynamic colour range than its budget counterparts offer with LCD technology.

AMOLED also improves battery consumption over LCD; this coupled with with Samsung's improved battery saving modes should help get you get through a full day even during heavy use (or two for light users).

Samsung's Smart Manager application is also available. This is a simple to access hub that shows useful information such as available storage, memory use, battery power and download management.

An 13 megapixel camera with F/1.9 aperture, the J3 also manages to take well detailed photographs with decent low light performance, benefitting from years of smartphone camera development in the higher tiers of Samsung's ranges.

*Since September 2013, Samsung have implemented a 'region lock' on all new stock. Clove Technology only have access to models designed for the “European” region, which covers both UK and mainland Europe. The compatible countries are listed below**.

For correct operation, this handset should be activated inside one of these countries with a SIM card issued for use there. The device will then be able to accept SIM cards from outside of these countries.

Activation requires turning the device on for the first time & completing set-up with the SIM installed, then completing at least 5 minutes of voice call(s) with this SIM.

Without activation you may still use the device outside of these countries when 'roaming' - using a SIM card from the listed countries.

If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock when first attempted to be used with a SIM card from outside of these regions. Local Samsung support may provide a code to unlock such handsets.

**All member states of the E.E.A and the following additional territories: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City.

IF YOUR CHOSEN DELIVERY COUNTY IS NOT LISTED, CLOVE TECHNOLOGY WILL BREAK THE SEAL ON THIS DEVICE AND ACTIVATE IT. YOU MUST AGREE TO THIS PROCEDURE IN THE CHECKOUT BEFORE THE SALE WILL COMPLETE.
