samsung did some crazy things this year releasing almost 8new phones, were by iphone just released just 2phones for this year but would be releasing 6s soon....why cant samsung be like that now look at the phone market, some of samsung crazy fan like me would be confuse of the mobile phone to buy, there is the GALAXY S6 & S6 EDGE THE NOTE 5, THE GALAXY J SERIES, THE GALAXY S4 ACTIVE, and GALAXY A8...... And so on, all are this year phones samsung jes keep wasting money building rubbish and confusing us.
only GOD knw how many phones there gona build next year
IPHONE user are the lucky ones they can easyly chose out of the two phones apple built than thinking all week on the phone to buy like we the #Galaxy_die_hard_fan
what do yo think guys?
to say the fact, about this phone....the phone size is great,also having one of the great battery the best body build........what i just wanna say is that samsung should stop fooling around with there sick phone, they should just stick whth there galaxy S series and Note including Grand, than feeding us with the same type of phones with different names and with the same menu.....look at iphone my worst phone enemy there are on one brand which is there 5 or 5s up ward
#samsung change ur ways we are sick of it
This should be very well priced. If not, its older sibling, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (and/or even the Note 3) would be a better buy. ;)
I want to know about its price...I wanted to buy galaxy alpha but this one is so lovely and amazing...
eldho vo , 01 Jul 2015some site shows 5.7 inch screen size but this site shows 5.5 inch , which is right?....5.7 inch is right backed up with fingerprint censor....
SnapDragon 615 is good chipset but GPU is very weak, comparable to Adreno 320.
Strategy of Qualcomm is very stupid, there is strong SoC called 810 and there is weak SoC called 615 (SD 410 is nothing for Mid-class phones) and there is SD 808 with adreno 418... Similar to Adreno 330 but slightly slower than 420 but this SoC never used in Mid-Class phones, only G4 used it but its hi-end class phone.
So, there should be another SoC between AD 810 and 615 or SD 808 must replace 615 for Mid-Range class...
Adreno 405 is below average for todays( and/or upcoming ) 3D games and Apps.
2 or 3 gb memory and Octa Core cpu won't help for that, people don't buy phones for calculating impossible math problems.
According to specs A8 will use SD 615, very bad choice.
Any newer MTK, Kirin and Intel SoCs could burn it out, then A8 will be a dead phone with post-tech cpu just like A7 and A5, both of them too expensive for such specs and they are already outdated.
I hope sammy change its mind for SoC...
No one likes SD 615 except newbies/new users.
some site shows 5.7 inch screen size but this site shows 5.5 inch , which is right?....
waiting for this phone from past 4 months, tracking its update each and every day. Just cant wait to get it in my hands soon. It will be amazing.......
If only Samsung made this A8 a 32GB (at least) model, that would make me buy it instantaneously.
I still like this smartphone so much! ;) Thinking of changing my S5 to Note 4 or A8...

I'm eagerly waiting for this one! It is looking like S6. But I'm worried about the price 😕
Samsung is only wasting funds by releasing unwanted mobile phones. Yearly making only flagship models like S and Note would be a greater idea. Like Iphone does. But Company thinks about getting cash faster by creating cheaper phones rather than increasing company rank.
