One of the best small phones on the market

from TrustedReviews
Bang for your buck?The Samsung Galaxy A3 is a nice phone. All that glass and metal is likely to convince many that it’s worth the high asking price. If all you want is an unobtrusive, well-made handset then the Galaxy A3 is a safe bet. However, if you’re the kind to shop around, are a big gamer, or tend to read/watch a lot of content on your phone, then it's possible to get more for your money.

Gets the S7's sleek design & waterproofing as well as plenty of updates over its predecessor

from PC Advisor
Overall, the A3's improvements for 2017 are pretty significant and make this nice-size, reasonably priced phone even more appealing for those who like the idea of the Galaxy S7 but can't quite stretch their budget that far.

The mid-range phone that thinks it's a flagship

from AndroidPIT
Samsung wants to (re)conquer the hearts of users and still win the favor of the masses.

Their intention is clear: it wants to offer the mid-range user a well-rounded a device as possible, though not quite reaching the high-end of the market... Full review


from GSMArena
It's a clear sign that the phone fills a specific hole in the market. The Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) has the potential to become a quiet hit - it won't put the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 out of business, but it will rescue many people from overspending on a flagship they didn't need... Full review
