The Samsung Galaxy J3 Pro was released in June 2016. The phone is an upgrade version of the Samsung J3 that was released in January of this year. Like all the Pro variants, this phone will give you more in terms of memory, internal storage, and camera. The phone has the same design and internals as its predecessor. In this review, we see what’s new in this phone and if it’s worth shelling out the extra bucks for the upgrade.
The design of the phone is the same as the J3. There is no increase in the screen size either. The body has been slightly increased to accommodate the larger battery. The phone has a 5 inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 720x1280 which gives a pixel density of about 294 ppi. The phone has a 68% screen to body ratio. The screen has good realistic colour with dark blacks and good contrast.
The J3 Pro has a Quad core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor with a 2GB RAM. There is no GPU. This is a downgrade from the J3 Octa-core processor, of the J3 released in January. However, the RAM has been increased from the 1.5GB RAM of the J3. The phone runs Android Lollipop. There is an internal memory of 16GB and a dedicated card slot that can be expanded to 256GB. The phone will run all normal applications with ease. However demanding games will cause the phone to freeze.
It is the cameras that seem to have gotten the biggest upgrades. The primary camera is a hefty 8MP shooter. However, there is no upgrade from the camera on the J3 Pro. The secondary camera is a 5MP shooter. Videos can be shot at 1080p at 30fps. Images shot have good colour and contrast. However, low Light photography produced images with dull colours. Although for a phone in this price range, the images shot are pretty decent.
The removable Li-Ion 2600 mAh battery will give you a talk time of nearly a day and music playback of 77 hours. Again, there is no upgrade from the J3 in terms of battery size. The battery should last for a day or two for the average user. But more demanding users will run out juice well before the day is over. With no fast charging options, you will have to charge the phone for a long time.
In terms of connectivity, the phone has all the standard options like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC and radio.
The J3 Pro has very few upgrades from the J3. The design and the screen have remained the same. There is no improvement in the battery, and neither is there an improvement in the chipset. The camera too stayed the same. It seems that the J3 pro is just a more premium version of the 8GB version of the J3. Nevertheless, here are some of the things we liked and didn’t like about the phone.WHAT WE LIKED
