The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) is the successor to one of the more popular cheap phones out there: the J5 (2016).
And while it retains the form factor and some key specs — an equally-sized 5.2-inch HD display and just 16 GB of on board storage — it gets rid of the plastic build in favor of a sturdier, metal design and it adds essential features like a fingerprint scanner. With its minimal side bezel, it even looks fairly modern.
