Samsung Galaxy A3 16GB Mobile Phone


The Samsung Galaxy A series has been one of the most popular mid-range smartphone options for years. The A3 is one of the best examples of a quality Samsung at a budget price.

Featuring Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), the A3 is optimised to save battery and be by your side all day long. Because we know there’s nothing worse than being caught with no battery.

The 13MP camera ensures you’re there to capture all of life's memories in all their glorious detail. Combined with the 4.7” super AMOLED display, the A3 is perfect for those who value a quality viewing experience. Whether you’re a budding photographer or a regular video consumer, this phone has you covered.

The 16GB storage gives you plenty of room to save everything you need. If this isn’t enough, the microSD card slot allows you to expand up to 256GB - so you can customise to fit your needs.

As smartphones get bigger, the smaller form factor is ideal for anyone who wants portability, as this phone fits comfortably in one hand. On top of this, the brilliant water-resistant design gives you peace of mind in any weather.
