Samsung Galaxy J8: Price in Nepal and short review

Samsung Galaxy J8 is available in Nepal at Rs. 33,490. The price tag for this smartphone doesnt suit the mobile specs. The processor is too old and even 1GB of games can’t run smoothly. Camera is OK but, if we have front camera with dual than that’s going to be even better. Overall the phone specs is good, but i donot prefer you ti but this. Rather go for other option in the same price range such as Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 AI, VIVO V9 Youth, Oppo F7, Huawei Nova 3i and Huawei Nova 3e.
