Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) review Youtube review

Description: The new Samsung Galaxy A8 is out and has some extraordinary features. The build quality is great and the weight gives it a sturdy feel. It is built from glass on the front and back. Unlike many new phones, this one comes with a 3.5 mm jack for headphones. Has an easy to reach fingerprint reader on the back. Comes with Samsung’s virtual assistant – Bixby which has a feature called Bixby vision which can recognize things in the camera and gives you options to buy them online. The Octa-core Exynos 7885 CPU and 4 GB of RAM make the phone extremely fast and smooth. And lastly it rocks the Nougat 7.1.1 Android version.
