Test: Samsung Galaxy A3

Good quality feel and no bloatware. Samsung has listened to the criticism.

There are two things the Samsung has a lot of crap for years. One is that they make expensive phones that still feels plastic and cheap. The other is that they fill the mobiles with a bunch of bloatware that lowers the phone’s performance. Neither of these two terms for Galaxy A3, but it does not mean that it is perfect.
The phone really feels like a quality product in your hand, and it is not just that it is made of cast metal, but also that it is so thin and light. Even the buttons feel a bit nicer than you are used to using. The downside is that you will no longer be able to replace the battery without dropping into the cell phone.

Galaxy A3 is the cheapest model in the A-series, and it lands on a strange niche that is budget but still not. The price tag on 3000 crowns are not directly financial, and sure, Samsung take out some extra premium for the new quality feeling, but then I’d like to have seen a better screen, too. Samsung’s Oled screens are sharp as usual but the resolution of 960 x 540 pixels is too low to display should feel good. It is not so much pixligt as blurry, and it shows more in Samsung’s Touchwiz own interface than in the apps or Google’s menus.

The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset 410. The predecessor Snapdragon 400 delivered clearly approved performance to a large proportion of the world’s cell phones in the mid-range class in 2014 and Snapdragon 410 has a support for 64-bit operations. In the benchmark shows a moderate increase to its predecessor, and therefore still delivers enough power for everyday needs, but I had expected a bit better than that. We will not close the performance of last year’s top models.
The UI Touchwiz teaches continue to provoke many, to Samsung almost compulsively changed everything that is standard in Google’s Android, from Setup to the location of the function keys. But new is that it is considerably less bloatware. Smaller even than this fall’s models that were a step in the right plan. Galaxy Apps, S Voice, Flipboard and Upick is really the only apps Samsung contributes, the rest is Google’s default apps or Samsung’s variants of these photo album or calendar.

It is interesting to compare the Galaxy A3 with Galaxy S5 Mini. They have almost the exact same dimensions except that A3 is thinner. S5 Mini has better screen resolution, fingerprint sensor, heart rate monitors and is waterproof. A3 is thinner, has better quality feel and is cheaper. I think that A3 gives you more for your money.

Test chart

The camera will surprise positively and delivers at least in good light significantly better pictures than we expected for the price.
