Galaxy J series
This year, the J series receives two new upgrades that are the J5 Pro and the J7 Neo. They are the top sellers in the J series. They’re very similar devices, and even though the J5 Pro is a little more expensive, it’s still an attractive phone.

Although it doesn’t come with S in the name, the Note is also considered a close cousin to the S line.

Once again, it’s now the question of display size over the hardware features.
The S8 is powered by the Exynos 8895, along with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Both come with 12-megapixel rear cameras and 8 MP selfie cameras. However, if want something more powerful, you can go for the 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage with the S8+ model with a 6.2-inch display. But you will need about nearly $800 to get the smartphone.
