Easily the worst phone I have ever used, extremely slow and crashes constantly. I've had nothing but issues with its reliability and performance which starts bad and gets worse. Do not waste your money on this phone.

The other reviews slam this phone a piece of junk. I am here to say so far for what I use it for it is much better than the LG Risio I just got rid of. Boy was that a mistake. I just typed up a cover letter today and I found the keyboard easy to use. I haven't used the camera much so no comment there. For touch screen sensitivity it can seem a bit touchy but more responsive than my Galaxy Alpha was. I have noticed when you are in a mall and you have several Wi-Fi choices it is quick to connect and switch between them. I haved watched many videos and yes the definition may not be the best but at 5 in. what do you expect. I expect to keep this phone for quite a while.

It very slow just updated it but it's still slow .
Sometimes you have to reboot it for it to work. If u on a budget it's an ok phone but I would not recommend getting it.
The reason I got this phone as an emergency because my lg charging port broke

it is not the worst phone ever in the galaxy J series. It can be a little slow at times, and the camera is not the best, but overall, it is a decent cellular device.

Nice budget phone

I did not have any of the problems the previous reviewer did who gave this a 1 star.
Unlike the previous reviewer my phone rotates only if I tilt it while auto rotate is enabled.
The touch screen on my phone is very responsive. It' also bright enough but is not an Amoled screen.
It has the default stock Google and Samsung apps including Samsung Themes where I downloaded a free dark theme.
The only annoyance was that I was being occasionally prompted to choose my default keyboard but that was fixed since the last software update.
Overall a handy phone. Specs say it will take up to 256 gb micro sd. Right now though I'm just using my old 32gb card from my old phone since it has all my stuff which this phone has been able to access just fine.

At your own peril

No. Just.....No.

I picked up the J3 "Prime" because the connection port on my Avant would no longer function as an external drive.

The glitch list on this thing is annoying

Auto Rotate - When it wants to.
The Screen - Simultaneously the touchiest and least responsive.
Never have I needed to edit as much. The Avant has one the same size.
Music Player - Go find one.
Bloatware - Sucks up far too much (limited) memory.
On Board Help - I get a "This is not available in your language" perfect English.

I will repair the Avant, reactivate it and use this ridiculous thing as a reasonable camera.
