Judging by the media I seem to be in the minority as I simply don't see the appeal of the Samsung design aesthetic.

It doesn't, it has 2gb.
I have this as my work phone and it's a fantastic 'budget' phone. It's metal body and superb quality.

This isn’t the one that the media go crazy for, it’s pretty much their entry level model, hence the low price.

Not the 2017 model you can't. There is a j5 model before this one that is plastic and lower spec (no finger print reader for example)

Yeah, a broken one. Because I've just looked at sold listings and the cheapest working unlocked 2017 model went for £99
I brought one for the wife in November great phone with the best camera at this price point.
"durable"...with no Gorilla glass? Yeah right.

Come on, even Gorilla Glass isn't all that durable, breaks just as easy as any other type of hardened glass. Have you ever seen Gorilla Glass NOT break?? Case in point look at Samsung phones they break easily

I can tell you it's a damn sight better than not having it. Buy a Moto G5 without it and see how long it lasts. No thanks

You don't even know what type of glass is used. It could be other hardened tough glass types like Dragontail, Aluminosilicate glass etc etc there's plenty of types out there just as good. I've used Huawei phones with Aluminosilicate glass and dropped them without breaking

They'd say if it was wouldn't they, certainly not worth risking not having it.

My Motorola X4 has Gorilla Glass and yet in drop tests it cracked first time

OF course it's up to you but I won't waste my money on a phone that has a spec that doesn't explicitly include toughened glass like this one. The Moto G5 lasted less than a fortnight...I've never in 5 or 6 phones with gorilla glass had a cracked screen.
