Hmm. The side bezels are chunkier than usual, like the iPhone X. I guess they are reserving the all-out stunning Infinity displays for the flagships.
Exynos 7885 and it's A73 cores do look interesting (Thanks goodness they didn't stick with last year's processors). I think they should used the SD 660. Maybe that is reserved for the A9+ (2018)?
Dedicated SD card slots, IP68, 3.5 mm jack, Dual front camera's, f1.7 on main camera all sound good.
I feel they should have launched it around May, with Oreo on board. That way the S series would retain the flag-bearer novelty, without the A series usurping it.....
UnbiasedSonyFan, 19 Dec 2017Mediocre battery? Seriously? At least it is better than 2700mAh battery of XZ1. LOL WTF, XZ1? Yea...totally relevant.
Why Sammy don't set a OIS in a so beautiful model? For me this killed the A8
Low battery, huge screen with power hungry cpu.. old nougat with huge price. Very bad combination. Better get s8 with promotion and discount price. It won't cost more.
And still Samsung can't make a proper upper midrange chipset. SD660 is way more powerful than Exynos 7885. Even SD630 is not far behind.

Ridiculous 18:6 crippled aspect ratio, huge price, mediocre battery and old Android version. Well thanks, but no thanks.
Revolution begins when the J series will get that infinity displays...
Vks9, 19 Dec 2017My wait is overNo OIS or EIS? The rest of the specs looks good though.
But for me no upgrade, I'll keep my A5 2017.
