Last year, the Galaxy A series phones were a massive success. The Galaxy A10 was the best selling Android phone in 2019, proving how successful the then-new phone series was.

In an earlier blog post, I mentioned that I was going to start development of a LineageOS 15.1 (Android 8.1 Oreo) ROM for the Galaxy J3 (2016). A couple of weeks later after testing and error fixing attempts throughout the build (which have failed or led to more errors which are harder to fix), IContinue reading “Galaxy J3 (2016) LineageOS development cancelled”
The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) launched at the end of 2015 running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and has never received a major OS update and to this day is currently still on Android 5.1.1 should you choose to stay on stock firmware.
