AT&T has quietly introduced another sub-$200 USD Samsung handset, namely the 2017 edition of the popular Galaxy J3 smartphone. Although it comes loaded with Android 7.0 Nougat, it will be tough for this handset to compete with other smartphones that offer much more for about the same price.

The new Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) has no special features, using the low-end 1.4 GHz Exynos 7570 quad-core processor, next to only 1.5 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, 2 MP and 5 MP cameras, microSD support up to 256 GB, a 2,600 mAh battery, as well as a 720p 5-inch display. As mentioned above, its only apparent advantage is the operating system.

Samsung fans who need a new handset and would not consider the much more attractive sub-$200 USD handsets from brands like ZTE, Xiaomi, BLU Products, or Huawei, should be able to get the Galaxy J3 (2017) for $179.99 USD up front. AT&T also offers the chance to acquire this handset for 30 monthly payments of $6 USD each.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
