CNET Editor's Review

The Good Samsung’s Galaxy J3 for 2017 has a low price, a removable battery and 256GB external storage.

The Bad The J3 lags hard with less RAM than last year’s model. Cameras are low-resolution compared to budget rivals.

The Bottom Line This year’s Galaxy J3 is a lukewarm rehash of last year’s great budget phone. Go for the Moto E4 instead.

Techradar Editor's Review


With a bright screen and slim design the Samsung Galaxy J3 makes a good first impression, but annoyances like a lack of auto brightness hold it back from greatness.



Similar dimensions to an S7

Color-rich screen


Annoying manual brightness

Not very powerful

Camera worse than best alternatives
