Expensive smartphones, although popular, are still better selling budget options. Therefore, Samsung is developing a line of devices with an index of A and J. Recently, another flagship of the mid-priced Galaxy J8 segment appeared on the market, which can be called an extended version of the predecessor J7.
Samsung Galaxy J8 Package and design
The smartphone comes with a beautiful box in which you can find charging, a cable for connection, a pin for a tray with SIM cards and a headset. To save the manufacturers have supplied the unit with a plastic case that does not creak and is precisely sized. The layout of the controls is standard, except for the fingerprint scanner, which is placed in the main camera area, which adversely affects the usability.
This step was forced in view of the enlarged screen, which occupies almost the entire space of the front panel. The speaker for playing melodies is now on the right side of the top of the power button. The case materials are not easily soiled and it is very convenient to hold it in hand, despite the large dimensions of the smartphone. In general, strict rectangular shapes and slightly rounded edges look stylish on matte plastic.

The six-inch screen with a resolution of 1480 by 720 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18.5 by 9 is based on the AMOLED matrix. From damage, it protects shock-resistant glass 2.5D with oleophobic coating. The edges of the display are curved, and the frame is 3 millimeters thick at the sides. The picture at first glance is clear and rich, but if you look closely at a certain angle, you can find a green tint. This phenomenon can be corrected by carefully adjusting the color profile. The problem is the lack of a light sensor, so under certain conditions, you have to adjust the brightness of the backlight with pens.
