Software, Design, Display
The Samsung Galaxy J8 is a dual SIM smartphone that runs on Android 8.0 Oreo.
Even with its plastic casing, I can say that the Samsung Galaxy J8 has a great body build.
Bezels are narrow and this makes it possible for navigations buttons to be on the screen. The arrangement of the cameras, fingerprint sensor and flash located at the back is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S9.
The display screen is that of HD+ which is not that great. The large screen of the smartphone will make the pixel thinner, thanks to its display size of 6.0 inch and resolution that measures 720 x 1480 pixels. Alongside those display parameters, the display is a Super AMOLED screen and has a pixel density of 274 PPI.
