The phone has a crappy camera, even though it is triple camera and new release its camera is worse than my old Mi4i. The photos look like they are sketched and not clicked. The photos lack sharpness in them, I wish I had not bought this phone.

I have owned the bests of these brands, and curved and bendable panels are like a Galaxy S and Note trademark now. But, a few years back, it was actually Nokia that is leading the way for these type of panels. They have the blueprint, gave it to Sammy for production, and guess what? Sammy started making their own flex panel after that. If it wasn't for the shitty management Nokia has been through, they would be the ones making this trend. I wonder if it is one of the patents Samsung has been paying Nokia for royalties all these years.
Nevertheless, I'm still happy with Samsung.
Its Era of full display .A good cost of phone but display same classical

And you'd be surprised how distinguishable aspects of a phone can make or break the purchase.... Though Samsung does take that break part way too literally

Usability, functionality, convenience - that matters, not any fancy marketing stuff :)

That doesn't mean they shouldn't go with a flat panel, as a Note device has no need for such curves. I think they should make a version without curves for this who don't like it or make the curves smaller, but still distinguishable. As for the battery, yeah, that needs improvement for a fact
I dont want another expensive new phone i want to haw all my old broken phones as new.
Ijukj, 09 Nov 2018Samsung is gonna be downfall like Nokia. Overpriced gadget with terrible feature. This time lo... moreUnfortunately. I've read an article today saying Samsung and Apple are being haunted by the lessons it gave to Nokia. And while Nokia is started to becoming a thing again, these two brands are on for some downfall. They are losing their grip on the market. I am happy for Nokia, but I'm very sad for Apple and Sammy.
I can accept it being compared with Nokia. But with the...shinchanghaos?
Dear gsmarena, great battery, great camera, for me finger prints works very very excellent not even taking 0.5 sec. And great glass design back, wide angle camera, compare in camera tool, camera is better than oneplus 6t. Still why you gave lesss rating.
Alan, 11 Nov 2018Bought from UAE, and i must say it is way better than what certain reviewer posting in comment... moreI know right? People dunno what they're talking about! This phone is phenomenal! I tried various games on it and it didn't even get warm either, battery life is one of the best I've encountered and I came from Xiaomi redmi note 4x, which had 4k mah!
Bought from UAE, and i must say it is way better than what certain reviewer posting in comments, especially about Camera and Battery. Both are awsome. Comments were making my decision difficult, but seeing it in real and using it made things easier. Best affordable phone in existing A series. I switched from Mi Note 5 Pro, which was a v good set bit runs good for a year only
Walter C. Dornez, 10 Nov 2018But there are better stuff for lower. Hell, there are flagships at this price. I'm not saying ... moreSo called 'flagships' also need to get better in some ways...
E.g., SGN9 would be so much better with flat screen and appearance of the elements on the back as in SGA9-2018 :) And with bigger battery.
Anonymous, 10 Nov 2018I don't see Honor phone is any better than A7 2018, I would choose A7 anytime over Honor phone... moreBut there are better stuff for lower. Hell, there are flagships at this price. I'm not saying make the flagships this cheap, I'm saying make the mid-range even better

FYI, Infinity Display is the moniker for the curved display fitted to S and Note handsets. The A/J have "immersive" displays
Anonymous, 10 Nov 2018I don't see Honor phone is any better than A7 2018, I would choose A7 anytime over Honor phone... moreHonor Play has:
- more powerful SoC: 206k vs. 124k (and 10 nm vs. 14);
- 2.9 mm lesser side bezels with 0.4 mm wider display (not to mention overall stb ratio, but with notch though);
- aluminum body;
- USB Type-C;
- 18W battery charging (A7-2018 somehow has none, although A8(+)-2018, with the same SoC, had it);
- more battery life in web (A7-2018 has better battery efficiency though, judging by GSMA reviews);
- and all that for just + $12 =)
- but, yeah, screen is dimmer and not OLED, not sure about exFAT support, the camera is barely better, microSD slot is hybrid vs. dedicated;
- btw, both have NFC;
