Photography lovers can click images from a 16MP snapper (1.9f aperture) present at the back.

The device offers a wide range of options such as dual SIM, VoLTE, 4G (supports Indian bands), 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi 802.11, a/ac/b/g/n/n 5GHz, Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS with A-GPS, Glonass, NFC and microUSB 2.0.

Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy A8 2016 is a robust configured set with fabulous shooters. Although the front snapper misses out front flash but it captures very good images in daylight. Thereby, the users can separately buy a portable mini selfie flashlight for best results in low light condition. The performance of the phone is very good when it comes to multitasking and gaming. The battery can give a backup upto one and half days in normal usage and one can also get in touch with their close ones via VoLTE. In short, this set is a sound choice to opt out for, you can go for it.
