Following Sprint’s release back in January, Verizon Wireless has today added Samsung’s latest budget-friendly 4G smartphone, the Galaxy J3 (2016), to its rapidly growing lineup of devices that won’t break the bank. The handset carries an affordable price tag of $109.99 and can be purchased for use on any of the operator’s pre-paid plans, which start at $45 per month for unlimited talk and text with 1GB of super-fast LTE data, and max out at $60 per month for an additional 2GB of data.

The Galaxy J3 (2016) is perfect for those just entering the smartphone market or for users who don’t need the most powerful handsets manufacturers have to offer. Its 5-inch Super AMOLED display, 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8MP rear-facing camera and 2,600Ah battery come together nicely to create a nimble unit that’s perfect for placing calls, responding to instant messages, browsing the web and playing non-intensive games.

If you’re still in two minds about whether to pick up the Galaxy J3 (2016), be sure to check out our comprehensive review here.
