Optimus, 01 Sep 2015Can any body plz tell does dual version of this phone has nfc and how is its battery usage?pl... moreHi there, so I've got the A8 duos and it doesnt' have NFC, I know the regular A8 doesn't have it either. The battery is a monster! I've had the A8 for about a month now and I charge the phone every 2 days. I don't game a lot but I use YouTube and Instagram a lot and also keep my phone connected to my ChromeCast all afternoon long. Two big plusses: A8 has fast charging and you can go from 0% to 50% in about 30min. Also, Ultra power saving mode can be used to make the battery last forever, my A8 lasted over 50 hours with the battery on 65%, that's over 2 days. GSM Arena say they got a record of 98 hours on standby with a full charge, whaaaaat!? Go buy it now!

Could we confirm whether or not the back of the A8 is metal? The review states that it is plastic, which seems to contradict Samsung's marketing of a "Full Metal Body". The gold model I played with at a store in Taiwan certainly felt like it had a metal back. Perhaps the reviewer was thrown off since the rim is polished and chamfered metal while the back appears to be painted and given a different texture.
Optimus, 01 Sep 2015Can any body plz tell does dual version of this phone has nfc and how is its battery usage?pl... moreNFC is not there in this phone. However the battery life is excellent. I am easily getting 5 hour SoT with phone running more than 24 hrs with still some juice left in the battery. Much better than my earlier note edge.
Samsung said PEOPLE DONT NEED FM RADIO when they were asked why there is no FM in s5,s6,note4,note5 ....... now this samsung has FM radio with broadcast recording !!!!
maybe SAMSUNG IS JUST LYING....

Within 12 hrs of purchasing the product had a bend in the body.. After going to the service center and making numourous calls they point blank refused to give a replacement saying that its physical damage and we made the phone bend.. tHERE IS NO PHYSICAL DAMAGE wats so ever.. no scratches nothing at all.. The phone just bended.. Now the customer service is not listening to us and telling us we bent the phone...HOW CAN A PERSONE BEND A PHONNNE ... After 12 hrs of paying 35000 now we are stck with a bent phone and no body helping us...
nice mobile very smooth to use...i like samsung....wonderfull display for SAMSUNG A8☺☺☺☺&#9786;
honestly speaking this device has far more beautiful design than their flagship models... i salute their designers... for not choosing this design for flagship
The Indian variant has Exynos (same as alpha), which is far better than this 615...But Samsung, how can you come up with such a thin device with such a great battery? I mean, could u have not made the same with your flagship?
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2015the only thing affected would be battery. but their panels are way more efficient now.no its ok...
I'm sure it's been mentioned repeatedly.......But why Samsung. This is 5.9mm with 3,050MAH and you could only put 2,550MAH in the S6??????
Yes I know height and width of larger screen add in as well.
But it shows that at least a 2,800 or up to a 3,000MAH could have been used.
And that the Note 5 has the same size display, but is 2mm thicker.....yeah yeah...spen slot and board. ok. But they battery is actually 50MAH less.
It could have at least been 3,400MAH if not more.

Just Bought the Samsung Galaxy A8 and l found it a real cool phone. All the while i have been buying only the note series and this time round decided to give this A8 (Gold Color) a try. Love it, so class!
- cheaper than the note and edge series
- expandable storage with microSD
- dual sim
- good battery
- wide screen
- fingerprint sensor for security
[deleted post]all cons are obsolete for me but NFC can be useful in future by Tap&Pay ..
