The mid-budget beast from Samsung
Display and configuration
Living up to the expectations, the Samsung Galaxy On8 flaunts a superb 5.5-inch full HD screen with a vivid and crystal clear Super AMOLED display. A resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels results in a pixel density of 401 ppi. The capacitive touch screen responds well to multi-touch as well.
The smartphone runs on an octa-core, Cortex A53 processor, clocking a speed of 1.6GHz, and is placed on an indigenous chipset of Samsung Exynos 7 Octa 7580. The 3GB RAM and GPU of Mali-T720 MP2 forms a paradise for all of the multi-taskers and hardcore gamers.
Camera and storage
The Samsung Galaxy On8 comes with a 13MP primary camera with an LED flash and autofocus. The quality of the camera is further enhanced by features like Back-illuminated sensor, exposure compensation, ISO control, High Dynamic Range mode (HDR), etc. Apart from quality images, the camera is capable of recording HD videos of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels at 30fps.
The front snapper too follows close behind with a 5MP lens and an LED flash for low light images, which proves to be a blessing in disguise for people who thrive on selfies.
To cope up with the storage issue, the Samsung Galaxy On8 provides a 16GB inbuilt storage, which can be further expanded up to 128GB. Moreover, an external USB OTG support makes this device a massive storehouse of a kind.
Battery and connectivity
After stuffing in quality specs in almost all the departments, Samsung doesnÂt hold back by fitting in a 3,300mAh li-ion battery, which makes sure that the show keeps going on for long hours.
The Samsung smartphone takes on the connectivity issues with a bang with dual 4G SIM slots, Wi-Fi 802.11, b/g/n, mobile hotspot, v4.1 Bluetooth, A-GPS, microUSB 2.0, etc.
Samsung has always been known to provide good featured smartphones at a high price. However, the South Korean mobile maker is all set to break the cliche with the Galaxy On8. Packed with loads of quality specs, like fast processor, quality camera, good storage and the trust of Samsung, it is one of the obvious choices if you have a mid ranged budget and is a Samsung fan.
