The Samsung Galaxy On8 comes with fairly decent specs, but given the fact that the competition has smartphones with much better specs in the same price range, the Galaxy On8 does not seem to be as good as value for money as say, the Lenovo Z2 Plus, or the Redmi Note 3, the Xiaomi Mi Max. The internal storage at 16 GB is too low given the price and the rest of the specs, making things a little worse for the Galaxy On8. It remains to be seen if Samsung/Flipkart bundle any good offers with the phone during the Big Billion Day sales early next month.
