Samsung Galaxy A8 Star Quick Review

Winsomeness is one of the key features of Samsung Galaxy A8 Star. An aluminium alloy forms the major covering of the smartphone while the glass takes up the frontal portion. Around the back, the dual camera sensors appear at the top left corner in a rectangular compartment. A LED flash is found beneath them as a fingerprint scanner is seen on their right side. The phone is slightly light as it weighs 191 g although its slimness is assured by the 7.6 mm thickness.

Pictures and videos are relayed properly on the 6.3-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The crispness of media output is governed by 1080 x 2220 pixels resolution and 392PPI pixel density. Also, Samsung Pay feature is supported on the device; the use of the fingerprint scanner authenticates payments.

The rear dual cameras of 24MP and 16MP are in charge of taking amazing shots. They’ve got f/1.7 apertures to bring out pictures with quality brightness. Even more, a LED flash is available to brighten the scene in low light conditions. A 24MP selfie camera captures images from the front. It can also record videos at 1080p@30fps.

In the engine room, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC sits as the commander. It also contains an octa-core 2.2GHz Kryo CPU and Adreno 512 GPU. A 4GB RAM is also on the device to smoothen performance. Software operations are well run by the Android Oreo OS. Also, there’s the Samsung Experience 9.0 UX that adds premium Samsung features to the device.

A battery as powerful as 3,700mAh battery controls the lasting duration of the smartphone. Finally, files can be stored on the 64GB internal storage that’s expandable to 512GB using a memory card.
