The front camera on the smartphone is 5 Megapixel shooter and Samsung has done a positive addition for selfie lowers by adding a dedicated front flash to the Samsung On8.
The smartphone has 7.8 mm thickness which is great considering the screen size device will definitely look sleek. The weight though is 169 grams which is a bit bulky but we give it a pass considering Samsung added a decent battery to the On8.
What does the Samsung On8 misses – It is missing the Fingerprint scanner which is the most common feature most smartphones have in this price range. Otherwise it seems to be a good offering from Samsung and biggest Pro is the Super AMOLED 5.5 inch display.
