AnonD-159451, 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).

"That's not to say that the Galaxy A8 (2018) doesn't have a predecessor - it's the Galaxy A5 (2017). " I think A8's predecessor is the Galaxy A7 2017, am I wrong?
AnonD-159451, 12 Jan 2018Price in India: 32990 (USD 518, EURO 430) This price is best or not ? For that price u can get oneplus 5t for a flagship performance phone. Honor View 10 is a good option and a bit cheaper than oneplus.
Wait for Honor View 10 review. For 500 eur, Honor View 10 will leaves this A8 to dust.
Dimensional size is too big for me.
Still have to wait again.
My Advice to everyone who interested with this phone is to just wait a few months. The price will be significantly reduced so it will be more worth the price. Of course you can always buy samsung previous flagship with little to no guarantee left. Dont buy at the very beginning!
Got scared by the second selfie picture!!!kidding
500 Euros is too much for this when the U11 Life and Moto X4 almost did the same things for much cheaper at launch. Sure they didn't have the OLED, but they had the other features. Sure the AnTuTu score is for this matches the outgoing SD 650 series, but both the U11 Life and Moto X4 on the SD 630 compare well and had better GB 4 scores with less RAM. Adreno 510 is the superior GPU. I think it is a good device, but too much money at 500 Euros. 400 Euros, I could see.
just zoomed in the first selfie, it is awful.
Does not seem 16MP, but 3
Pixel density is same of 5" FHD.
So the 18,5:9 is useless.
Better make a 5" FHD 16:9 anyway.
Very solid offering. Nothing new but mid rangers aren't the innovators anyway. The price is steep, however, in a few months it should become more viable. Getting this for my mom.
