Donut, 26 Jan 2018LOL seriously man? S7 and S8 is better we all know that but are they staying in the same price... moreI bought this phone for 350 eur. It's a great phone but not worth more than what I paid for it. The GPU is weak, actually Adreno 508 from S630 has better performance than GPU from galaxy A8. Definitely, for 400 eur you can buy better phones than this one.
I've got in a couple of weeks ago price 425$ it was great phone to use really amazing phone
I have used Samsung Galaxy tablet and it's amazing.thank you Samsung
Sorry but are you serious "impressive image quality" ??? i had a5 2017 and image quality was bad when on pc screen. no OIS on this class samsung what's up with you ???
Anonymous, 24 Jan 2018Yes, its sad that phone prices have gone up. However you can still find a good deals around yo... moreLOL seriously man? S7 and S8 is better we all know that but are they staying in the same price range as A8 2018? OP5t is 200% better with the same price no doubt, do more researches about price range before commenting.
Hey guys. Any idea of which version of gorilla glass does the device has?
Yes, its sad that phone prices have gone up. However you can still find a good deals around you. Theres some phones thats better than the A8(+). Galaxy S7, Galaxy S8, Oneplus 5T, Honor View 10, and etc.
The 7872 has make g71 mp1 also buy clocked at 1.2 the
Whereas the s8 is clocked at 546 mhz per core
Still procceser in the 7880 could have same setup
Still very weak performance tho

I really can't believe in the review that you find the position of the fingerprint sensor "convenient"??? It is so bad, way worst than on the S8 (anyway, both are poorly placed)
What a joke...
The only reason to get this phone over the 5T is because Samsung is more 'mainstream.' I don't deny this isn't important (ecosystem, reliability, availability, etc), but seriously! The 5T is 90% (or more, if you ask me) of the iPhone X and Google and Samsung's own flagships, keeping up with them in many important area. It has a screen that matches (in all aspects but resolution, but honestly, I have had 1440 and 1080 and unless you are doing VR, no difference whatsoever) all of the abovementioned top flagships. It has a modern design (and metal back, which is honestly preferable as long as wireless charging isn't a dealbreaker), dual cameras (not a pixel, but still very good), face unlock faster than Samsung's offering, an Oreo update, the fastest charging in the industry and well, you get the idea. It is much easier to list what it lacks (1440p, official water resistance, OIS, stereo speakers, card slot, Verizon and other US CDMA carriers, great cameras) than what it doesn't, and when compared to phones at its $500 price range, a lot of these 'problems' are acceptible or even great (cameras, resolution).
I know this review is of the A8, but Samsung, like other major companies, is forced to sabotage this and its other upper midrange phones as to stop them from competing with their flagship. OnePlus 5T reviews always hold it up to flagship guidelines, As I see it, either get the 5T or the S8. Hell, you can find the S8 for $500 or less in new condition if you know where to look. I have a Oneplus 5 and have tried out the S8, and I have all of the features I listed the 5T having except for the design, screen, and a slightly different camera configuration (I get telephoto). I have dealt with Oneplus support, and it has always been fast and helpful. I may be biased, but I am not trying to advertise for OnePlus or anyone else; I am simply sharing my experience. I have nothing against Samsung as a whole (I am writing this on my Samsung Chromebook Plus). I hope you all find the best devices to suit your needs.
I have to say, the speaker position is at least better than bottom firing speaker..
I am currently using this phone. It's got a great design, best display for midrange phone. Loving this feature is a great and fast fingerprint reader. The feal in hands is premium and the battery is also great (for me 24h +, using phone for buisness, email, web, shutting photos, txt messaging). One bad thing is, when you scroll on the menu, opening new window or application (on every application). It's not dramatic, some can live with this but for 500 Â€ Sorry this must be more fluent experience. The nokia 6 2017 or 2018 has almost no lag and costs half the price. The almost all lag on A8 disapir if you disable window animations in the devloper menu. Some little lag shows sometimes.
The A8 plus is exactly the same price with one plis 5T in Malaysia ...what a joke
MIlan, 13 Jan 2018I am very excited about this phone but i don't wont to spend not even nearly 500 euros on it. ... moreGood choice, I plan on doing the same but for A8+. The processor benchmarks just a tad below the s6 so should perform well but then begs the question, looking for a new s6 might be better off (if it's true that the s6 series will get Oreo) if you don't want infinity display, Ip68 and possible better software optimization (oreo should makes things been more stable).
JohnIsraelCooper, 15 Jan 2018A single core Mali GPU from last year ?! Are you kidding me Samsung ?! This is a low end phone... moreGpu on A series is a godanm joke... no wonder why 4k recording, 1080p60fps or even 720p 60fps recording is disabled. Samsung has disabled 1080 60fps youtube playback on A series 2016 because gpu is a trash for the price I paid for... hell even galaxy s5 had 4k recording! I miss my galaxy alpha every single day!!!
