The Camera profile is one of the delicious reasons why you need to buy this device. You have an 8MP snapper at the rear and a 5MP snapper for your selfies.

The Galaxy A3 is designed for the heavy social media user and thus, it was necessary for it to have camera specs that fits the dynamic needs of the millennial.

Battery and Extras

Battery Capacity: Li-Ion 1900 mAh (Non- removable)

A Li-Ion 1900 mAh battery powers the Samsung Galaxy A3.

Battery life was an important aspect during the design of the A3 and a 1900 mAh battery is enough to take you through the day.


Samsung’s strategy has always been about providing adequate options that will meet the budgets of its buyers.

This is evident with the Galaxy A line where we have the Galaxy A3 at the lower end, the Galaxy A5 at the midpoint and the Galaxy A7 at the high-end.

The Samsung Galaxy A3 is, therefore, a fine choice for the buyer who seeks a premium smartphone design while on a budget.
