User opinions and reviews

Decent enough phone. I've got the A300FU, which has 1.5GB RAM (opposed to all other models' 1GB) and 16GB of internal storage, which I boosted with a 128GB microSD card. Mine came on Android 5.1.1, Samsung updated it to 6.0.1. Fun fact, Samsung ...

Really? :O Me too :) I'm an extreme user, so the phone's life is VERY hard! I'm charging it 3 times a day. But it is "unbreakable" phone. I called it "Samsung's Nokia" Good phone for "beginners" :)

I am using this phone as my work phone for 5 years. Everything works fine, but I am using it only for callings and emails. Recently I installed MS launcher and it is OK. I chose that phone, because of its form factor and I don't regret.
