Samsung Galaxy J3 :Great Screen And Low Price Mobile

The new 2016 Samsung Galaxy J3 mid-range device is now available via Verizon for a prepaid plan, months after the device first became available via Boost brands and Sprint Mobile’s Virgin.

The Samsung Galaxy J3 looks like the latest Samsung flagships, but feel is more like that of the old guard. It’s an all-plastic phone aside from the glass used on the front, and central select button, which is metal. This gives the impression of a compact, well put together device and while it is plain it looks distinctively Samsung, with curved corners and an oblong home button.
