Samsung Galaxy J8 is Samsung’s latest incredible mid-range offering that sets the wheels on motion. The smartphone looks good on every angle, especially its affordability angle.

In fact, this smartphone made it into our list of the latest Samsung phones in Nigeria currently. Chief among its specs are the Infinity 18.5:9 aspect ratio, 64GB internal storage, 4GB RAM and dual 16MP + 5MP rear cameras.

Now, let’s delve deeper into this device.

Samsung Galaxy J8 Quick Review!

Beginning with the smartphone’s camera department, a single 16MP shooter with f/1.9 aperture and LED flash are present to execute super selfies. On the flip side, a dual rear setup consisting of 16MP and 5MP sensors capture images beautifully. These cameras have the support of a LED flash to take pictures in low light conditions.

The Infinity Display of 18.5:9 aspect ratio gives the device an endearing appearance. The well placed dual rear cameras and fingerprint scanner enable the comeliness of the device’s rear. Meanwhile, it is engulfed in plastic material which doesn’t affect the awesome ergonomics.

In the display segment, a Super AMOLED touchscreen of size 6.0 inches issues the multimedia output. It has a resolution of 720 x 1480 pixels and pixel density of 274PPI to its name.

Under the hood, Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC powers up the smartphone. An octa-core 1.6GHz Cortex-A53 CPU also aligns with this chipset for the delivery of power. The graphics on the phone are well laid out by Adreno 506 GPU.

Multitasking duties were left solely in the hands of a 4GB RAM while the functions of file storage were put on the shoulders of a 64GB internal storage. This storage can be increased to 256GB with the aid of a MicroSD card. Android Oreo OS runs as the phone’s software without glitches. Lastly, a non-removable 3,500mAh Li-Ion battery handles the duration of the phone.
