disappointing , I like the features like ,removable battery , water proof and smasungs original design not trying to imitate apple.
Fot $450 i can get a S6 or top up $40 to get a Note4.
Samsung been too Big Headed expecting people would pay Flagship price for a Mid Range Specs phone.
Oh come on ! Mere 0.2" bigger screen, 3MP more for Real Camera compare to A7 & Samsung is asking for $130 more.
Market are flood with better specs & lower priced phone.
In Cambodia, U can see A8 poster at many phone store with this looks. NO more surprise :/
VJ, 10 Jul 2015Whats the difference between this A8 and A7.Specs seem exactly the same.battery capacity incresed and included finger print lock
I need to know whats the actual difference between the galaxy a8 and a7.everything seems to be same except the .2 inch screen size increase
loubielou, 10 Jul 2015Why?can"t Samsung change there name to SamDung as there getting Worse & not better in... morethey are "getting away with it" even if there might be i-di-0ts who think otherwise. nobody forces you to buy anything in this world. get a life
someone has to be really stupid to complain about having too many options
I can imagination why Samsung launch in Vietnam with price I 10,990,000 VND??? It is so expensive for one phone on Mid-range. I think customer have many chosen with HTC or Lumina from Microsoft. I think many Samsung fan will regret and anti A8 phone.
loubielou, 10 Jul 2015Why?can"t Samsung change there name to SamDung as there getting Worse & not better in... moreYes, these are the companies which are there in overpriced list at this moment:
LG (G4 is costlier than S6. Yeah truth hurts I know, but bear the pain, because I don't simple care)
BlackBerry (Even GSMArena review said that there is no point is spending that much for phones like Classic and all that! ROFL)
Motorola (A phone like Moto X 2014, Nexus 6, well people will never understand that they are actually overpriced too, quite a lot in fact!)
As you can see the list is really small.
And please don't care about pointing out OneMinus One and other Xiaomi products. I don't want to talk about phones which's assembler will not even exist in very near future.
And do one more thing, drink some milk, that will give you some basic idea about Economy.
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2015It cost RM 1888 or $450 in Malaysia due devaluation of Malaysia currency from $1 to RM 3.2 to ... moreYupp.. Me too feel the same way.. Because of the exchange of currencies between Malaysian Ringgit and USD dollar are too high.. If continue like this or getting worse, I'm pretty sure all the new products from the outside country will become expensive in Malaysia!!
loubielou, 10 Jul 2015Why?can"t Samsung change there name to SamDung as there getting Worse & not better in... moreIt was because they had the quality! Whether the hardware or the software, both Samsung are reliable..
I do like the design, it's really awesome.. If we bring back this phone for the past 2 or 3 years, it will be the high end model with beautiful metal design..!!
This phone looks really nice. Not sure what all the hate on this device is about....if the price is high then you're probably too poor to afford it then, stop with the hate already. That 3,050mAh in a 5.9~mm body is impressive though.
