Both smartphones are priced on a higher side and you have much better options in online e-commerce market. But if you are an average user or an elderly person who prefers brand trust over specifications, then these Samsung phones work fine for daily usage. Otherwise too, if you prefer quality build and want to use these phones as secondary device then it would not be that bad of a choice either.
