Overview

Galaxy A3 deals

The Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 is a stylish phone with a premium build but a fairly low-end price tag.

The Galaxy A3 2016 is a phone for anyone who wants flagship style without the price tag, as its metal frame, glass back and slim 7.3mm thick build leaves it looking as good as high-end rivals. But this no high-end phone, as it comes in at a budget price of around £200 SIM free.

Other than stunning good looks the Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 also offers impressive battery life, with its 2300 mAh juice pack lasting well beyond a day of moderate use.

It also has a bright and vibrant 4.7-inch 720 x 1280 display, with a pixel density of 312 pixels per inch. That’s the same size and almost the same resolution as the iPhone 6S. Add to that a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing one, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, 4G and NFC and you’re looking at a phone which offers a lot for not all that much money.
