MarcoK, 27 Aug 2015They should have just grabbed some.old snapdragon 801, the performance would match the Mali an... moreWhen you read the review for the Galaxy Alpha you will see why that was a Premium phone
REMOVABLE BATTERY, but let down, no sacrificed by only having 32Gb non expandable memory... so a 0.5 iPhone.
IMO it would have "converted" some iPhone users to buy FAILED because NO memory expansion
this whole A range just swaps one mistake for another add memory expansion, then make the battery NON removable.
The A range is same phone various screen sizes.
Where apple got it right iphone6 and iphone 6+
What Samsung should have do is Alpha with no more than 2 more different scree size
What should have happened is Alphas
Alpha REMOVABLE BATTERY with MEMORY EXPANSION...
As you can see there is NO Alpha 2 and it's been a year

stooopid lollipop in white is especialy done so that it kills your display faster , next year you must buy another phone cause this one looks fade already...we`re talking about amoled and about LEDs premature distruction , not to mention shorter battery life cause of this...samsung should of have done something special for themselfs as soft..
I have used the new Samsung Galaxy A8 and l found that so that it is the best phone for a few reasons :
- cheaper than Samsung Galaxy Edge Plus or Note 5
- thin profile and nice to hold
- expandable storage with microSD
- dual sim for best of both worlds
- 16 megapixels above most moderate phone
- LTE Cat. 6 which is the fastest data download and upload
- good battery
- large screen at 5.7" rather than 5.5" or smallee
- fingerprint sensor for security
I believe if you are looking for a phone with good features and less problems this phone is the best choice. Look no more.

Had hands on in real, the phone is very nice from front but back side destroys it's awesomeness,very nice ,big ,curvy very good front and back camera very slim,just the only problem is it's back and overall this phone is awesome

What you can fell and see is what matter most. Metal over plastic for aesthetic. Good quality screen over more resolution. Reliable OS over faster processor. Etc etc
I've read multiple reviews of both this phone and the OnePlus 2 and I think the Galaxy A8 is better because of the following reasons.
Why Galaxy A8 is better than OnePlus 2:
1. Better battery life
2. Better camera
3. 5.7 inch AMOLED screen vs 5.5 inch LCD screen (I have handled the A8 and it looks so vibrant and colourful)
4. The Snapdragon 810 in OnePlus 2 is not dependable as it has been proved in so many tests. OnePlus may have optimised it with software updates (read throttling), but will the processor still behave after upgrading to Android 6.0?
5. Expandable memory
looks like a good smartphone. Is it available in Europe? any idea guys?
I bought this phone 2 and a half weeks back. It looks awesome in hand. And the battery endurance, I couldn't believe myself, it's exceptional. The build and feel in the hand is awesome. The screen is gorgeous. I got the Exynos version with gold color. Although the color looks more like brass as mentioned in the review, it is way better than the regular black and white color options. If anyone wants to buy this, I would recommend the gold color option.
Being metal doesn't make it more or less premium, its specs and performance do. Plastic over metal any time
