I bought this phone 4/YR ago and I'm still using it :D I'm not gonna lie it's a terrible phone and when I'm using it in online classes battery goes down very fast :D

I blocked it because I thought Id lost it. How do I unblock it

I just got the AT&T version of this phone for free in perfect shape, it's definitely not a great phone but for what it is, it's pretty decent

My mum had this phone for about 4.75 years and it worked terribly. Seriously. She passed it down onto me and I've tried to install some games and all of the games roll real slowly, and the games lag so much, and they are all terribly glitchy. There is only 8GB of storage, and the system memory takes up about 75% of the storage, and I can only install about 2 games that are only about 100 MB of storage. I had to disable YouTube and Gmail because the device kept blacking out and saying " Your device does not have enough storage "
The battery life lasts like 2 hours of constant usage, and drains even when the device is sleeping!!!!!! And when its like 50% battery it drains like 5% a minute! And when 10% it the battery dies like in 5 secs.
Dont buy this!! Go for Samsung A51 or newer for a better performance.
Kind regards,

It has been useful for me up to now. But I wonder myself, is it possible to increase the Android on this phone?

Got this phone in January 2017. Still using. It has lasted 4.5 years. The reason I am sticking with Samsung.

Was good phone but didn't last long with this ram and storage. Not worth buying today. 7/10

I was this phone in 2017

Very good little phone. The salesman thinks that newer is better, but it's not always the case ! Among many phones through the years, 30 years mobile use - I have kept the S3, J4 and Nokia N8 also.

I buy today Samsung J3 (2016) 8gb. Phone was used very little because the owner had an official who used it dailyit. I wonder if it is possible, and if so ... how to order a newer version of android? something like 7.1.1. (nougat) or any other than 5.1.1. which is on it!
If anyone knows and can help, I would be very grateful!

This phone is a good phone. I am using this phone from 2017. It has no issue. The camera of this phone is very good. The battery timing is also good. It gives me almost 5 hour screen time on a full charged. You can go for it. I think it is old but gold. Thanks.

I got this as my first phone in September 2017 after being passed down from my mom then my sister. It has survived being submerged in water a few times, once I even left it in my pocket when I went swimming in a river for at least five minutes. It has also survived being dropped on asphalt at 25mph with no cracks (with a case of course). I still have it to this date and even though it is slow, I hope it'll continue to function for many years to come.
