Samsung sells the Samsung Galaxy phones, such as the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 as its premium line of phones. If you want something substantially cheaper, the Galaxy J phones are where Samsung serves the genuine budget market. The Galaxy A series, including the Samsung Galaxy A5, sits in the middle, offering a slew of features that at one point would have been exclusive to premium handsets.
