Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge

Despite its super affordable price point, the 2017 Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge smartphone puts undeniably good hardware in an intuitive form factor. It features a 5-inch high-definition TFT display, a 2,600mAh battery capacity, microUSB charging, 1.5GB of RAM, and 16GB of flash storage (though can add as much as 256GB via microSD card). You’re given a couple of configuration options for the chipset and processor, depending on which carrier you go with (Sprint, T-Mobile, Boost Mobile, or Cricket), and the phone also supports dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, and LTE connectivity.
