summit, 06 Nov 2015when using a8 camera in PRO mode does this have manual focus on subjects like the s6? Yes, except for Slow motion video capture you get almost all camera modes.

AnonD-243518, 10 Nov 2015Hy guys how much time galaxy A8 battery is taking to fully charge from 0 to 100%1 and half hour.
It comes with a charger which charges faster than what you get in the other smartphones.

If not, then you can go for Alpha for that matter.

If you are getting Snapdragon variant, the power wise both these phones are same only you get fingerprint sensor and newer touchwiz which is not worth putting in 8k more for.
Saifu, 16 Nov 2015Is samsung galaxy A8 a better phone to buy???which ones better between A8 and note 4?Reasons to not opt for Note 4:
Note 4 comes with older Touchwiz which does not support themes. Also, certain gestures such as triple touch to make screen small are missing. The fingerprint sensor feels too damn old when compared to any phone launched in this year. The faux leather back has become old style statement as far as samsung phones are concerned.
If nothing amongst above bother you, definitely go for Note 4.
Is there a way one can know if one's phone comes with Exynos or snapdragon?
I must say this is really tough. Last year's flagship G3 is no doubt a power house but let me tell you that go for A8 if you want great battery life along with fingerprint sensor and great looks.
Go for Lg G3 ionly if you want raw power in order to play games and watch videos.

Arshad, 18 Nov 2015Where is ur A8 made of, Vietnam or some where else,can u let me know asap pleaseIts actually made in the Philippines.
I don't know it is because of touch wiz, or the processor performance, the real life usage of Galaxy A8, which installed with various apps, turn on 4G, GPS, the phone has serious lag, even just scrolling up or down in Facebook and chatting apps.
Touchwiz UI is sluggish too. Sometime it get ok, but most time the trasition fron page to page just has much lag.
Feel like it is much slower than a Galaxy S4, even gaming just feel as lag too.
Galaxy Note 4/3 still feel much faster than the A8, even all is already upgraded to Lollipop.
Currently using A8 for 51 days and got no issue. Just now on my 52nd days my WIFI just stop functioning. Also the fone is heating abnormally and the battery drain fast now in a span of 2hours on just a standby mode battery drain 35%.
Anyone can help or give advise about my concern...Thanks....
Bought this phone just 3 weeks back...everything is going great...I am just hooked up for its camera quality...rear one being 16 MP does give me blur when magnified image a litte...not giving me the expected quality of the clicked pics
