Samsung Galaxy J3 Singapore

The Out of the Ordinary Minimalist

The Samsung Galaxy J series has established a different flavor in Samsung’s Galaxy Series. The J series has proven to be a market friendly due to its price and generous offering. The latest addition in the J family is the Galaxy J3; a midrange phone it may seem but it carries a polished performance and above average features from its price range. The J3 has explored and dominated what used to be as uncharted territory for Samsung – high value budget phones.

Polished and Smart

The Samsung Galaxy J3 is a reliable and smart device, as it lets you do almost everything that you can with a smartphone. Enjoy streaming or watching your favorite movies with its vibrant 5-inch Super AMOLED display. Download and install any applications in the Google Play store as you please because this phone is more than capable of running majority of the apps there. Multitask and play as much as you want because its processor and RAM will make sure that you won’t experience any hiccups as you use the phone. Point and shoot at the most memorable moments in your life and watch it in full glory with the phone’s 8MP camera. The Galaxy J3 is made to provide everything that you need, not just the basics.

Vivid and Pixel Rich Screen

The Galaxy J3 sports an HD display (720x1280) on a 5-inch screen. The screen is free from any pixels due to its pixel density of 294 ppi – equally rich as iPhone’s retina display. The Super AMOLED display radiates a very deep black, making the color palette more vivid colors. To top it all, the phone’s screen is embellished with an Asahi Dragontail Glass protection to prevent it from getting scratches.

Snappy Performance

It’s equipped with a Quad-core processor with each core clocked at 1.5 GHz. The processing speed is fast enough to smoothly run moderate applications in the play store and could run heavy graphics games. Its RAM is also 500MB more than the usual which will give you extra RAM for your multitasking needs.

More Juice to Keep You Going

You can use your phone the whole day with just a single charge, thanks to its 2600 mAh battery. Even if you’re power is running low, you can easily extend it further with the help of Samsung’s Ultra Power Saving Feature, cutting down your phone’s battery usage extensively.
