Samsung’s doing a fine job in keeping its J series up to date with new smartphones. After the J3 2016 made quite some headlines last year, the company aims to go one step better this time through the introduction of the J3 Prime. The smartphone commands a price tag of 16,000 rupees placing it in the budget side of things.
The J3 Prime was touted to feature a slightly different exterior to the one we saw in the Galaxy J3 2016 as something closer to the J3 Pro was expected. That however hasn’t turned out to be the case with the smartphone as this particular device carries on the exact same design of the Galaxy J3 Emerge with a similar plastic/metal hybrid build but similar dimensions with a strip running through its back onto which the primary camera sits with pride.
Samsung’s most used display is back in the J3 Prime; we’re talking about a 5.0 inches Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 294ppi pixel density. This translates into a 720p resolution that in all fairness goes well on a 5.0 inches display. Rest assured, you will get a satisfactory graphical experience atop the smartphone.
By calling the primary camera not so good, we’re not implying the camera to perform poorly by any means. We’re just a tad disappointed that the primary sensor features a relatively small 5 megapixel sensor compared to the standards the world is moving towards nowadays. That being said, the camera snaps some nice photography with geo-tagging, touch-focus, HDR and face-detection adding to the cameras weak prowess.
When we first read a 5 megapixel primary sensor in the J3 Prime’s specs sheet, it was pretty much apparent that the selfie camera would feature a much smaller sensor. Standing at a mere 2 megapixels, the selfie sensor is too small for what the world demands right now.
The smartphone is powered by a quad-core processor with 1.5 gigs of RAM. While that isn’t sufficient enough to run the built-in Android Nougat, we’d do consider the smartphone featuring Android’s latest version as something of a plus point. The smartphone’s other silver-lining is 16 gigs of internal storage which could’ve easily been 8 gigs. Fortunately, you’ll get much more than just 5 gigs of internal storage for your personal needs while an external card slot will be present at your service as well.
The 2600 mAh battery is all the J3 Prime has in store for you, thanks for staying tuned folks!
