Samsung Galaxy J8: Pros & Cons

out of 10
MSP Score
The Samsung Galaxy J8 has an excellent rear and front-facing camera. Its display is good for outdoor usage, thanks to the AMOLED technology. The smartphone also has the best-looking, and most feature-packed UI among its competitors.
In spite of being a mid-range smartphone, the Galaxy J8 comes with an entry-level processor. Due to the lack of processing power, the Galaxy J8 does not have a smooth performance. Although the display is good for outdoor usage, it has a lower resolution, leading to pixelation on the screen.
The Samsung Galaxy J8 is not a bad smartphone altogether. However, other smartphones in the same price range offer more than the Galaxy J8. I think you should consider Redmi Note 6 Pro instead.

Excellent in every way.
By jantu09, 52 months ago
I am a huge fan of Samsung for like the past 9-years, and regarding quality, they have never let me, or their loyal customers down. But most of them had complaints about relaunching old smartphones with new names and slight changes in OS. But Galaxy J8 is like a new breeze in the town.
- Running on the latest Android 8.0(Oreo).
- I think it is the first smartphone in the Samsung franchise with the fingerprint sensor on the back. (By the way, it works superbly).
- Facial recognition also works fine.
- Large infinity screen (6").
- 3500mAh battery works fine.
Must buy.
