It's been 5mnths now I'm using A8..it's running vry well. It has Samsung's 16MP camera sensor which clicks nice pics for regular use but no OIS, but still it's vry good. It's slim & has long battery. But aftr d last update of 68MB it sometimes freezes & battery discharges little faster. Don't know why..anyone else in India facing d same issue?

JHAYPEE14344, 26 Feb 2016Hi guys please help! which is better for gaming? A800F or the A800Y ? please helpI think the octa-core version handles graphically intensive games smoother than the snapdragon version
I am using this device and it has good battery backup but it is non removable
Sid2727, 06 Mar 2016Does A8 supports otg?yes, it supports OTG with very fast response....
I have purchased this phone 3month before.
it have best display, battery backup, headphones, sound setting, sensors, looks, metal body, and all software features are the best.
bad things i founded are..
1.external keys(volume & unlock)are not smooth enough.
2. its sharp metal edge is extremely brittle which can damage by your nail also so you need to always cover-up your phone to save that sharp edge.
3. fingerprint sensor is not good sensitive every time i need to scan my finger 2-3 times to unlock the phone. also it required to cover whole home button by finger.It means you need approx. 3 to 4 sec to unlock sometime, where as my friends china phone get unlocks in 0.3 sec.
4. & yes, rear CAMERA 16MP but i think it can't chase the 8MP of old samsung phone.
but still i am satisfied with the good things it have.
I want to share 1 small tips about how to know Samsung Mobile is using which processor, its very simple and easy. You cannot find any information about the processor in mobile, all you need to do is simply download cpu-z this app will help you with all the information. When you download this app it will download all its specifications. So whenever you go to buy mobile tell them to download this app and show you the specifications you will know each and every single details about the mobile.
I have just acquired my A800F and noticed it looses settings after sometime. For example on keyboard vibration when typing. Noticed Vibration icon on Keyboard setting is disabled despite being there. Are observation?
To all users - your Samsung a8- 800F, 800Y, 800I, whatever the processor it has - the mobile heats during heaving games play it is normal no matter what smartphone that you buy as great as it is or even with best processor it will always heat with heavy web browsing intensives games video streaming just because it is a smartphone if laptop or desktop PC heats even with cooling fan why not a smartphone. This is natural..
But This model is the best one. I have Samsung A8 - A800I, I just love.
Kindly avoid heavy games for starting 2 months when the mobile is new.
