samsung is really bad in making good quality and innovating phones. Ten years ago their phones looked nice, now each of their phones is crap, meant for the masses and people with little knowledge and little care about a good device.
But there is one thing that samsung is really good in. And we have to say it, cause together with apple they are the king in overpricing. No other company is better in that then these two. Once again you pay too much for a loser phone. But people who want that, go ahead. Your money.
For that price, i can buy 3 zenfone 2 ze551ml 16gb, with better performance
wauuuuu some piece of price for medium soc and 16 (little) storage.
Agree about very nice design (thin, balanced, minimalistic)
And 3rd get more from others for same or less $
GS6 560$ and A8 564$ ???????????????????????????? link to gs6 no commercial http://geizhals.de/?cat=umtsover&xf=152_5~1022_Samsung~842_1920x1080~3229_2015~157_32768#xf_top
The A-series models do not have LED notification. Take note if the A8 had it.... but I doubt it.
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2015Who the hell would buy this for $500?Apple (for reverse engineering purposes)
To those American folks complaining about the price of this phone by blindly comparing it with flagship phones' prices in the US.
S6, iPhone 6 (base model) costs nearly $900
S6 edge, iPhone 6+ (base model) costs nearly $1000
Eeven the iphone 6 will match the A8 price. LG G4, NOTE 4, Flex 2, M9, Z3, S6, and not counting the Chinse one....wait a few months and price will get close the 400.00 US...
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2015I can buy a LG G4 for $2880 RMB in China, why do I buy stupid A8? LOL @ SamesungAfter a few months its price will be cheaper than your stupid LG G4. LOL @ you!
csrrz, 16 Jul 2015why I should by this crappy pricey midrange when I can buy flagship and ex-flagship fot that priceAfter a few months, its price will be the same as your ex-flagship phone, so don't worry. You can afford already.
I think it's time to abolish 8 & 16gb phones in this day and age as data are getting bigger and bigger over the years
No need to wait several months after some days only they will drop the price.
