My A8 2018 has one problem. I wish they could update the back camera issues. I have a problem on shooting landscape photos. It does not focus much on close objects. But, FFC is one of the best, really impressive performance (Bloatware is not my type), and nice extras. Hopes for Samsung to repair a software update on my Back camera...
Anonymous, 20 Mar 2018Does this A8 lag under normal usage?No, it is remarkably fast.
Been using it for a month now
Front camera is ok, back camera is really bad. It's also full of Samsung bloatware as always. Google Pixel is almost the same price and camera is much better
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
BokiJA, 17 Jan 2018I am currently using this phone. It's got a great design, best display for midrange phone. Lov... moreHopefully oreo for all samsung will smoothen things out as it has done for the s8 (on beta at least)
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.
