The 2018 released Galaxy Amp Prime 3 is a 5” budget device backed by the Samsung in-house Exynos 7 Quad 7570 processor, RAM capacity of 2GB, and a total of 16 GB storage capacity.
The device isn’t entirely new to the market. It is a rebranded Samsung Galaxy J3.

Let’s talk about the Samsung Galaxy amp phone dimension. The budget Samsung galaxy weighs around 5.4oz (152g) which is quite average for a smartphone. If you have read my other reviews, you’d probably know that I like my mobile devices to ideally weigh below 5.6oz (170g).
The physical measurements are set at 5.6 x 2.8 x 0.4 inches (142.7 x 70.1 x 8.9 mm) with an aspect ratio of 16:9 which is commonly used in mobile devices.
When compared to the Galaxy J2 Pure , which is yet another Cricket Wireless budget smartphone released in a year after the Amp Prime 3, both devices are almost similar in almost every aspect from the physical dimensions to the processors and memory capacity.
The 2 differences between the mobile devices are the displays and operating systems.
The Galaxy Amp Prime 3 has a 5” display with a resolution of 720 x 1280-pixels and a PPI of 294.
Meanwhile, a slightly lower screen resolution of 540 x960 pixels is presented on the 5” Galaxy J2 Pure. The total pixels per inch on the J2 is also lower.
When it comes to the operating system, both devices run Android Oreo with the newer galaxy running a modified version, the Android Version 8.1 Go Edition.
According to the Android website, the Go edition is used on entry-level devices that have less than 2GB RAM. What baffles me is that both devices have similar RAM capacity but different operating systems.
Both devices have the Samsung Exynos 7 Quad Processor with 14mm build.
In terms of battery, the Amp Prime 3 has a Lithium-Ion 2600mAh power pack which is expected from a budget phone.
All in all, the device makes sense for its price tag with basic sensors and a really basic camera with an autofocus feature. It doesn’t amp it up, however.
