The 16-megapixel rear camera is great for taking sharp, detailed pics in low light thanks to its bright f/1.7 aperture and large 1/2.8-in sensor. The 16 and 8-megapixel Dual Front Camera has a clever feature called Live Focus, which gives your selfies a professional feel by letting you adjust the background blur.
Biometric security: The A8 includes cutting-edge biometric authentication features. Quickly unlock the phone using the fingerprint scanner or by scanning your face.
Running Google’s Android 7 (Nougat) operating system, other features include 32GB internal storage with expendable memory with a micro SD of 400GB.
Samsung Galaxy J3
If you are looking for a great smartphone at an affordable price point with premium features, the Android Nougat running Samsung Galaxy J3 could be for you.
Sleek style: Despite sitting at the affordable end of Samsung’s range, thanks to a metal body and 2.5D glass, the J3 feels like a more premium device. It feels sturdy, yet comfortable in the hand thanks to a camera lens that doesn’t protrude from the back.
Screen: The Galaxy J3 has a 5-inch HD screen, which is a great size for watching movies and TV shows.
Versatile camera: On the back there’s a 13-megapixel camera with a bright f/1.9 aperture which lets in more Iight, so you can rely on it to take detailed photos in dim conditions. It can also capture movies in Full HD. If you are keen on self-portrait photos, the front-facing camera has an LED and Selfie flash to help you take the best shots.
