The Samsung Galaxy On8 comes with the same design as the Galaxy J5 and J7. Samsung Galaxy On 8 has a metal frame with a fine plastic build on the rear. At 169g, the device is quite weighty and heavy on the hand.

Samsung did a great job with the screen offered on the Galaxy On8. Sporting a Full HD Super AMOLED display on its 5.5-inch with a 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution in size translating into a pixel density of 401ppi, the flagship produces clear and crystal images while as well staying strong and protected with the presence of the Super AMOLED feature.

Also, the Galaxy On8 screen provides good color reproduction, nice viewing angles and is surely readable under sunlight.

An amazing screen feature on the Galaxy On8 is the “four screen modes” — Adaptive display, AMOLED cinema, AMOLED photo, and Basic. The ‘Adaptive display’ option adjusts the color range, saturation, and sharpness automatically according to your environment.

Samsung Galaxy On8 possesses a 16GB internal memory of which only about 13.1GB is freely available for use. Personally, with the current crave for large storage space on devices amidst smartphone users, the ROM of this device may not fully serve a long lasting function before been exhausted.

However, the good news is you can expand your storage space to about 128GB through the use of an external SD card. This gives enough room for keeping all files and whatever is to be kept on the Galaxy On8.


The Samsung Galaxy On8 is powered by a removable 3300mAh battery juice and sadly, without any quick charging technology whatsoever. It will definitely take a long time to get the Galaxy On8 fully charged but it will be definitely worth it as it lasts an average of 12 hours and 42 minutes on a full charge.
