Review: Samsung A3 2017

I recently got a new camera, I mean phone. The trusty Lumia finally met its demise and company replaced it with Samsung A3. The first impresssions have been good, but in all honesty I haven’t been fully satisfied. There are some peculiar things that I’m not fond of.

  • Uploading photos does not work in Windows using the “Import pictures and videos” as the wizard finds thousands of photos and the phone lock itself too soon
  • For some reason Samsung decided to equip with the phone with the reversible USB Type C port as standard micro B would have worked fine
  • Standard Android would work fine so why push all that Samsung crap on the phone
  • The camera makes huge images, but the white balance is all screwed and low light quality is poor compared to several years old Lumia

The phone itself is snappy and the most important productivity apps (such as Clash Royale and Clash of Clans) work well. The camera starts fast with double-click of the button. With the help of my viiiiva heart rate strap Strave app is useful.
