Created date: 11/18/2018, 10:51:32, Updated date: 04/15/2020, 17:21:32

A thorough review of the characteristics and specifications of the Galaxy J8. We provide a detailed evaluation of the phone in terms of usability – including ease of holding, screen visibility, performance, image quality, and multitasking capabilities – as well as functionality, looking at the battery and camera.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Galaxy J8

The camera function of Galaxy J8

The Galaxy J8 has a 16 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Galaxy J8 is equipped with a rather powerful 16 MP front camera. The photos turn out quite well since they don't look grainy even when you print them out.

The battery performance of Galaxy J8

The Galaxy J8 has a relatively large battery with 3500mAh. The Galaxy J8 has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Galaxy J8's size

The Galaxy J8 is 3.0inches (75.7mm) wide, 6.3inches (159.2mm) tall, and 0.3inches (8.2mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Galaxy J8, it weighs about 6.2oz (177g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the Galaxy J8, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Galaxy J8's screen

The Galaxy J8 has a 6 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The resolution of the Galaxy J8's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of Galaxy J8

The Galaxy J8 has an extremely high processing power of 1.8GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The Galaxy J8 has 4GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The Galaxy J8 has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Galaxy J8's storage capacity

The Galaxy J8 has 64GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Galaxy J8 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of Galaxy J8

The Galaxy J8 is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
