Why Buy Samsung Galaxy A3 ?

The Galaxy A3 is powered by a quad-core, 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor paired with 1.5GB of RAM. This is more than capable of running Android 4.4, but it also means it’s no faster than more entry-level handsets such as Motorola’s £110 2nd Gen Moto E. Its Geekbench 3 scores of 474 and 1,418 in the single and multicore tests are almost exactly the same as the Moto E’s 470 and 1,397. The A3 also scored a similar figure in Futuremark’s Peacekeeper browser test, finishing with 670 compared to the Moto E’s 625.

As a result, opening apps and menu settings take roughly the same time to open on both phones. Web browsing is a touch faster on the A3, but there’s no denying this is still a little sluggish considering the A3 is twice as expensive SIM-free. It’s certainly not as quick as the £200 EE Harrier, which has a faster Snapdragon 615 chip. That being said, the A3 isn’t the only mid-range phone to get lumbered with a Snapdragon 410, as it shares the same chipset as HTC’s £210 Desire 620. In this sense, at least the A3 has design and screen quality on its side, as the Desire 620 pales by comparison on both fronts, even though both of them have similar performance.
