“What extra does SIM808 modules give me compared to SIM908 module?”
SIM808 GSM/GPS modules have a inbuilt Bluetooth stack compliant with 3.0+EDR & FM radio support, Audio recording, SSL security for data transmission, More sensitive Navigation system with GNSS capability with sensitivity of -165 dBm(Read more about dBm here) compared to the GPS only SIM908 with sensitivity of -160dBm.

GNSS is GPS+GLONASS a terminology used if the device supports navigation using USA satellites (called GPS) and Russian Satellites (called GLONASS). So, SIM908 can only track using American satellite systems where as SIM808 can acquire location fix using American and Russian satellite navigation systems, which is helpful when one system is not able to provide accurate location with good signal strength, we can always switch to other system for better results.

SIM808 module comes in a very compact size of 24*24*2.6 mm dimensions compared to SIM908 which comes in 30*30*3.2mm package.
