Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) Opinion

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) is a low mid-range smartphone with a budget price tag. When it comes to competition, this device lacks lots of features and higher specifications offered by its competitor brands in the same price range. The poor 2400mAh battery in a mid-range smartphone is intolerable.
