I'm using this samsung A8 since 4days...
First time I'm using a Samsung phone. I won't play games, so I'm not writing any reviews on gaming.
1. I just love it's SAMOLED FHD display.
2. Looks.. mine is gold variant. And it looks so premium to hold.
3. Fingerprint scanner works perfectly. But we need to use same finger.
4. Amazing camera.
5. Good build quality.
6. Flawless performance. Touch works smooth and fast. No lagging at present.
7. Excellent website browsing and downloading experience.
8. Decent call quality.
9. Good screen to body ratio.
10. Slim and comfortable to hold. Looks beautiful.
11. Decent battery life.
12. All apps works fine and no noticeable lagging.
1. Minus rating for music quality. It's not upto the mark even with other music centered earphones. I'm a music lover. Disappointed with the music player performance and quality. We need to adjust the equalizer everytime. I didn't expect this bad quality from 30k range smartphone.
2. Disappointing speaker volume.
3. No front or bottom speaker. You need to keep your phone elevated. Unless you cannot even notice the ringtone.
4. No fast charging option. Many of its rivals have this feature.
5. Ram occupancy is another issue. 2gb ram is not sufficient to handle this. System files occupying more ram. It should be 3 or 4 gigabyteso.
6. Heats up a little as usual, but not as much as Sony and HTC etc..
7. Missing some premium features. So A8 is just an upper-midrange phablet.

dave, 11 Dec 2015how to check if your galaxy a8 comes with a snapdragon or exynos processor? thank you in advanceGo to applications - settings - about phone. In the model row it should show SM-A800F for the exynos 5430 model. If its the snapdragon 615 it should show SM-A800YZ
