Is this Phone support NFC?I think I can upgrade this from my galaxy s3
ajex, 16 Jul 2015bro 2gb ram is not enough.Dude, this isn't meant to be a flagship device. Hence the lack of 100% premium specs throughout, it lacks in certain areas because it's not meant to compete with their "S" or "Note" series phones.
Tcool, 16 Jul 2015Don't buy it immediately after launch, wait till the price drop.it's true

This is also going to be a big flap like A5 and A8, bcoz, here also Sim 2 slot is used for micro sd card. Means you have the option 1) Use Dual sim with out SD card or 2)Use Single sim only with Sd card.
I thought galaxy A8 would beat the galaxy alpha in terms of performance, but as you can see it's not like that.... never mind but don't ever buy a flagship or mid range smartphone from Samsung after the immediate launch..... wait for sometime the price will decrease at huge amount..... I suffered this by buying the galaxy alpha immediately after its launch in India for 38000 rupees and now it's price has been decreased to 7000...
Same was with the case of note 4 and s6. ....
So please keep patience and definitely go for it.
AKSHATc4, 16 Jul 2015nice one ! i want to buy.Don't buy it immediately after launch, wait till the price drop.
Tcool, 16 Jul 2015For what is 3GB of RAM? For what is 21MP cam? 2GB RAM is enough and 16MP cam is as good as DSL... moreTrue. 21mp camera is too high for smartphone. Even a standard mid range stand-alone camera typically have 12-16mp only. Any higher will make it bigger like the Galaxy Zoom series.
yeman, 16 Jul 2015why to 2GB Ram It should have been 3GRam and a 21mp of cameraFor what is 3GB of RAM? For what is 21MP cam? 2GB RAM is enough and 16MP cam is as good as DSLR camera.
Now, I get it. This is the long rumored phone that was supposed to be Galaxy S6 Plus with lower specs they keep talking about. Turn out to be a Galaxy A8 instead. Nice one. Where the gyro sensor? I need that to watch 360 video function in Youtube.
Joe Maxpayne, 16 Jul 2015dont get your hopes up. they will sell this for double the price what it really worth.So what? Apple sell iPhone for four times the price for what iPhone is really worth, but people still blindly buy it. At least this would have lesser price than the basic expensive phone with logo of an apple with a bite.
Xyz21, 15 Jul 2015In my opinion Galaxy ALPHA is better than galaxy A8How in the world Galaxy Alpha became better than Galaxy A8? You must be dreaming. 16MP main cam for A8 vs. 12MP main cam for Alpha! 5MP front cam for A8 vs. 2.1MP front cam for Alpha. 386ppi for A8 vs. 312ppi for Alpha. microSD expansion memory for A8 and nothing for Alpha! FM radio for A8 and nothing for Alpha. Are you awake now?
If it is full RGB display (non pentile), then this will be my perfect phone :-)
i want to buy a Samsung Galaxy A8 please to put it on www.gsmarena.com/postopinion.php3?id phonephone=7249
