One thing I never heard that Samsung phone part replacements are very costly. I bought A8 for $437 one year ago and yesterday my display went off but touch is working. I went to 10 shops and all of them said replacement display will cost about $163. All of them said so. I checked on amazon, ebay and aliexpress the price is almost same. IDK what I'm going to do with this shit but I'm never going to buy Samsung phones. I broke my Xiaomi Mi5's display and I repaired it with only $38 lol. A8's 5.7" FHD 368 ppi vs Mi5's 5.15" FHD 428 ppi lol. Samsung sucks.
Guys pls i dont know what happened to my phone, it stopped charging, and will remain at 0% without coming up
What could be the reason.

Thomas, 25 Feb 2017I have bought this Smartphone on March-2016, from the 6th month its getting damaged & the ... moreScreen was comming out from the metal body probably becouse of battery. I had a similar problem. Battery pushes the screen out, your battery is bloated ( expand, bulge, distend, inflate, dilate, bloat, puff up, balloon, fatten, fill out, tumefy ), it is thicker than it should be.
Not as good as it seemed when I first bought the phone. It will shut down even if the phone is at 30%. It has charging problems, even changed cables. The camera on the front is horrible. And sometimes the screen will black out and I can't do anything with the phone. I've had it for a year and started experiencing problems only after 4 months.
excellente!!. I switched from a note 3 to this phone and so far no issues.the performance of the device all depends on how you manage it.
I bought A8 since it was available in my country. Everything is excellent. Fast, very good battery and camera and also very durable(I dropped the phone a few times on concrete). May be some of you get fake units from china or just liars.
I have been using Samsung Galaxy A8 for two years now. Usually to save battery, I am using Ultra Power Saving Mode. It seems that the battery life time is not as long as that of Samsung Galaxy S5 in this mode. Battery life for Samsung Galaxy S5 in this mode is more than 1 day, up to a week. However for Samsung Galaxy A8, the battery life time is LESS THAN 1 DAY even though I have full-charged the mobile phone and straightaway changed to Ultra Power Saving Mode. Is this normal for Samsung Galaxy A8?. Or is it just my mobile phone?
Guys, please really avoid phones with 1.0μm camera like this one. Low light performance is horrible, so dark, color is dull. Even photos in daylight, color is bad. 13MP with standard μm pixel size is much much better, even 8mp.
I really regret buying this. Please samsung, don't do this ever again. I prefer camera bump but good cam rather than slimming the phone but reducing cam quality.
CAMERA IS REALLY HORRIBLE. Don't trust gsmarena cam review for this phone. You will know the quality by using it everyday, in any light, like me.
