Samsung Galaxy J5
Each year Samsung releases a lineup of budget smartphones. The Galaxy J3, J5, and the high-end J7. These are available from almost every major carrier, small regional carriers, and are extremely affordable.
Make sure any Galaxy J device you buy is the new 2017 model, and not one from 2016. Because they make a new one each year.
The Galaxy J5 or J5 Prime only has a 5-inch 720p screen and slightly lower specs, but it's still a Samsung Galaxy. It packs a quad-core processor with a capable 13 Megapixel f/1.9 aperture camera, 16GB of space and a microSD slot to expand storage.
This phone is basically a smaller cheaper version of the J7 we mentioned in the first slide. Samsung hits each price point. The biggest difference is the size and quality of the screen.
