Samsung Galaxy On8 Review: Price, Specs, Pros and Cons

Review of Samsung Galaxy On8 at a Glance:-

Samsung made other lineup for budget friendly smartphone, under this series recently they have launched Samsung Galaxy On8, we have studied about the phone and found advantages and disadvantages which mentioned under the short review. Samsung marketing this phone especially for the Full HD Super AMOLED display. The keys specs of smartphone are 5.5 inches FHD display, Exynos 7580 octa-core processor, 13MP primary | 5 MP secondary camera, 16 GB Internal Memory | 128 GB External card support, 3 GB RAM and 3300 mAh battery.
The era of plastic made Smartphone is disappearing, On8 has full metallic body looks sexier to hold in hand. the back cover and battery is removable. There are many smartphone providing the fingerprint scanner in the half price of this handset but On8 missing this feature. The functional keys are fixed in their conventional places like Power button in right edge and volume keys on left, The USB port and 3.5mm headphone jack located on the bottom. 

The key feature for advertising this handset was Full HD Super AMOLED display with 401 ppi pixel density, when it comes to practical experience this display is vibrant and bright enough, this makes the watching videos and movies pleasurable to eyes. while praising the display there is a downside about the audio output of main speaker which is not loud, even ring-tone in full volume setting is not sufficient. 
To boost the performance of smartphone, Exynos 7580 octa-core CPU is coupled with 3 GB RAM, which is perfect and smooth for day to day to multitasking, however it is not designed for the heavy graphical gaming. There will be hardly any moment when you feel laggy. for mediocre multitasking it is quite suitable.
Some people may choose it because it has LED flash in front camera too. The rear camera has 13 MP sensor and front has 5MP. The picture quality taken from the phone are quite average. It can take some good outdoor landscape photography in daylight. 5 MP camera is relatively better to take some selfies for profile pictures and social media. 
Samsung has installed a 3300 mAh removable battery inside the phone, the good news about the battery is that, it is providing a decent battery backup and the bad news is that is takes a long time to charge the phone, means there is no Quick charge support in this handset.
