JamsheerMckr, 12 Jan 2018S7 3000mAh Battery, no infinity display, 4 GB RAM Dual Pixel 12.0 MP Camera, it's bad.The Camera is definitely not the bad one. If you only think bigger MP means better camera then the marketing works really well. The A8(+) doesn't even have OIS which kinda disappointing.

But I share your sentiments about the price point. It's best to wait until it drops. And knowing Samsung, it's going to drop quickly.
Good battery life. This shorter review format is easier and better to read, unlike the older format which could be seen as unnecessarily long. This one is more concise without skimping on any of the important tests.
Dilmeet, 12 Jan 2018It may in many areas but IP6x makes a big difference to all. Just my thought.Agreed about the ip rating. But considering other aspects such as better performance, future proof, 6gb ram on v10, 8gb ram on 5t, 128gb internal memory, AI features on v10, better camera features theres just no point to pick this A8 if its price the same. Thats my opinion.
nomeD, 12 Jan 2018S8 mini? Dimensional size is too big for me. Still have to wait again. sadly I think the whole Mini phone segment is dead... and i think the S8 or S9 mini was just a suggestion..
Shui8, 12 Jan 2018Wait for Honor View 10 review. For 500 eur, Honor View 10 will leaves this A8 to dust.It may in many areas but IP6x makes a big difference to all. Just my thought.
CherryPie., 11 Jan 2018Huge dissapointment. Nokia 6 or redmi 5 offers way more for the money/performance. They only l... moreRedmi 5 and Nokia 6 compared to this is odd. They offer value agreed but A8+ is in different league! Though price is insane for now.
JamsheerMckr, 12 Jan 2018Price in India: 32990 (USD 518, EURO 430) This price is best or not ? Not worth at the current price

Phylyp, 12 Jan 2018Even better, Samsung India's online store (shop.samsung.com/in/) is offering the S7 for INR 30... moreS7 means you have to sacrifice a little on battery and the front camera performance. Rest, everything seems better or at par though!
Review format is excellent. The phone at it's current price is sadly in a very difficult spot. Comparing it with Honor View 10 or OnePlus 5T doesn't make sense since performance-battery balance and IP6x ratings are things not to be ignored. Wish, Samsung had at least made Exynos on par with SD660. Overall, it really needs a price cut to make sense. Glad that it scores nicely across but price is off mark!

Apart from the design language, the S7 is superior in other respects - in CPU, GPU, camera, and a few features (e.g. wireless charging).
I think anyone considering the A8+ in India should only do so if the S7 is out of stock.
Valladares, 12 Jan 2018"That's not to say that the Galaxy A8 (2018) doesn't have a predecessor - it's the Galaxy A5 (... moreThe A8 (2018)'s predecessor is the A5 (2017), as the 5.2" 16:9 screen is roughly analogous to an 18.5:9 5.6" screen (i.e. roughly similar width, plus increased height giving the longer diagonal). Similarly, the A7 (2017)'s 5.7" 16:9 screen has grown to a 6.0" 18.5" screen in the A8+ (2018).
