Review: Samsung Galaxy J3 for Boost Mobile

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  3  

The Samsung Galaxy J3 is a simple phone that doesn't necessarily aim high, but hits the intended mark head on.

For $180, the J3 falls about in the middle of Boost Mobile's lineup. There are a number of phones in the $80 - $120 range, and a handful in the $200 - $280 range before you reach the flagships at $400 and up. The J3 is worth every penny of the $180 and is a better option than most of the devices filling up the bottom of Boost's shelves.

The J3 has a conservative design and average build, but it is easy to hold and use. The removable battery and memory card will be a benefit to many. The screen is above par for this class of device, as is battery life. I found call quality so-so and saw less-than-stellar performance from the Bluetooth and GPS radios. The Android user interface is functional and feature-rich, though some may dislike Samsung's customizations.

In sum, the Samsung Galaxy J3 is perfect for those seeking a sub-$200 phone from Boost Mobile.
