The pair of phones were announced back in December, but we were able to get our hands on them at CES 2018.

The Galaxy A phones may not be as fancy as Samsung's flagship Galaxy S series, but they look pretty good for a midrange phone.

There's only one camera on the back though, similar to the Galaxy S8.
