This phone is literally the worst. The phone has a water issue always saying there is water in the port. And it sleeps for weeks or even months. I mean the phone being on but the screen is off. I'm phone less while owning a galaxy a8 and its really pathetic. Does anyone else have this issue?
Considering getting this one or LG Q70. The Q70 looks like a better phone in most ways, but I have small hands and wonder if the size will be an issue.
Ali Umborbin , 27 Apr 2020How do I use dual SIM cards on the A8(2018) brandFirst, make sure your A8 (2018) has a dual-sim Card version, not a single-sim Card version. There are two version of this phone. The A8 (2018) has 2 slot (yes, two slot, not one), one is for a sim card and microSD and another one is for another sim card only.

I have this phone for a year now and the only problem I had is the front camera, I am using the normal mode of it but sometimes when im taking groufies, (group selfies) it only focuses on my face and my friends is blurred at the back im not using the portraimode
This phone is a very good option for the users that want a good and cheap phone. The battery holds up really well in each condition.For social media its a really great choice. For gaming its like meh, you don't want to expect a high performance phone, but games like Brawl Stars, Call of Duty Mobile(low settings), Asphalt 9(low settings), you are going to experience good gaming. The phone is water and dust resistant.The camera is amazing i made photos of such a high resolution, and they look crisp and vibrant. This phone has Gorilla Glass 4, and is very durable.

So, if you feel bad because this phone is not worth your money, buy "not Samsung" phones because Samsung phones are always more expensive than others with the same specs.
I have A8 2018 about a year now, and it's working just fine. No problem at all. I like the build quality of the phone, premium feels like the s-series.
The speakers works fine and loud.
The battery is superb, always have sot 5 hours more.
Camera is really good on daylight conditions, and for lowlight i'm using gcam so that's good.
Fingerprint reader is fast. Face unlock can opened at lowlight cause i set auto brightness.
The cpu not the best, little bit slow when moving application to another but that's ok.
I'm glad to have this compact phone.
I guess it'll work for another year.

Not Water Resistant, It's Moisture Gainer is One Of The Best Feature Of This Phone.
Too Much Expensive Then Other Mobile Brand With Same Specs.
Worse phone I've ever owned. Nothing but issues. Constantly having problems with phone. Always telling me I have 'water in the port', and refuses to charge. Already sent it back once. Now, it alternates between 'water in the port' and 'overheating'. Unbelievable.
Done with Samsung
I've had the Samsung A8 for two months now. Really happy with the purchase! The battery-life on my Samsung S6 Edge was giving me anxiety, it drained too quickly. The battery life on this A8 is amazing, lasts all day without charging, it also charges very fast. The fingerprint reader is MUCH faster than my S6. The screen is bright and clear, comparable to the top-tier phones. This A8 is fast, powerful CPU and tons of memory. The only downside -- the camera is meh, slow and poor night quality. But I'm not a photographer, I wanted an inexpensive phone, I didn't want to pay $1000 more just to have better photos. Retails for CA$600 w/tax, but I got it for CA$330 brand-new using LetGo (someone received it free from a carrier, but they already have an iPhone). For the price, I'm extremely happy. Huge upgrade from my old phone.
Samsung A8 2018 has lot of defects , specially echo problem cannot be solved any way
wastage of money
Pros: almost none. Cons: way too heavy; fingerprint sensor forgets my fingers after 1-3 weeks (need to rescan); cannot block SMS without number. My previous phone was a Huawei P8 (not Lite), after that, this Samsung is a bad joke.
Diputrid, 08 Feb 2019So i wanna upgrade my phone from iPhone 6S to Samsung Galaxy A8. Is it a good decision or yall... moreLike ordinary answer: it depends on your need. Actually, iPhone 6S (yours) has different league with Android (i.e Galaxy A8 2018). If you used to use iPhone and have lots apps, it is better to have another new iPhone again. A8 2018 is not a perfect one buthas all features in the good box ticked, not less than good, not more than very good indeed. I used to use Android and Xiaomi, but I am using this as my daily drive now.
