Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star (A8 Star)

Samsung Galaxy A8 Star Review
Source: Fone Arena English
Samsung Galaxy A8 Star is a recommendable device available right now had they launched it under the price bracket of Rs. 22,000. Since it comes with a hefty price tag of Rs. 34,990 considering its specifications, other smartphones including OnePlus 6, Asus Zenfone 5Z and others seem like a better deal. It is available exclusively from Amazon.in. To summarize, here are the pros and cons of the smartphone.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
