Kam, 17 May 2017with IP68 this will justify the price.... ^_^not really, my old bad Xperia M4 Aqua I bought for Â€ 279 which was really stupid (going for Â€ 72 now on eBay) has IP68.
3 things on this one
1. the design is not too bad
2. this will hopefully kill the C series (whose selling point was a metal body)
3. the prices are definitely too high, I mean I just saw an offer where the HTC 10 costed Â€ 300 (gone up to 400 again) and the iPhone SE usually doesn't cost much more than Â€ 300. And those are multiple times better phones than J5 and J7
IT looks like my Galaxy A5 2017
And it makes my phone looks cheap(not premium)because the same design(front)
am i the only one who think that the screen on the sife is curve like xa1?
will they add noise cancelling mic, compass and gyroscope?? they always forget about some basic component.
but u can got all sensors on cheap $100 phone..
Anonymous, 17 May 2017Hope it won't lack basic sensors again. Ambient light sensor is a must. And compass too. Do th... moreyou forgot the noise canceling microphone...it simply is inconceivable for me the absence of a noise canceling microphone ( basic component) on phones like J5 and J7 in 2017. 2016 and 2015 models do not have it and that is lame!

Glass may be fragile, but it just makes phones look premium and worth their money. It makes phones look like they're designed by an actual engineer/designer that required some complicated and complex process rather than just covering the back with some (probably recycled) ordinary and boring material (I.E. Metal)
Anonymous, 17 May 2017Why not 32 gb? Is it that difficult?Well, A5 and A7 2k17 have 32gb so this one have to be worse than that because it will be cheaper ..
Hope it won't lack basic sensors again. Ambient light sensor is a must. And compass too. Do they really think people will buy their flagship just because they are crippling their mid-range models? I certainly won't.
Anonymous, 17 May 2017Absolutely, they just overprice everything no no.. the octa core and 13mp with f1.7.. can you find the same quality in the same price? bigger number maybe, but samsung's quality is much better.
i felt like the J prime and J 2017 series looks much better than A.
A is dull and the glass makes it feel cheap, fragile, and fingerprint magnet. metal is much much better. Can samsung make metal flagship please?
Look at the S8, there is so many durability issues caused by the super curved glass front and back. Not so beautiful either. iPhone 7 still a better looker with the stealthy metal body.
