Do you believe the said specs should cost you that much money?

Which Samsung phone, according to you, has the best pricing for what it offers compared to other smartphone brands?

The Super AMOLED Display, the cameras and LTE support would make me want to get this phone. But I still the prices should have gone down by now considering it is a 2015 phone.

How do you think it compares to the Boom J8?
