Overall an amazing phone. But only thing is that the back side battery case sealed is plastic. Not metal. And there is no corning gorilla glass 4. But in store while taking they said it Is a full body metal phone. No ways.
Fingerprint works awesome
Slim design and premium look
Oly 2gb ram
Bit high price
I would rate 3.5/5.
Overall a good phone.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2015Gsmarena says Gorilla Glass protection on this phone is yet to be confirmed. Who knows whether... moreLast week, I go to official Samsung store near my place. I ask the worker there and they said it is Gorilla Glass 4. I think it doesn't matter that much because today you have option to buy tempered glass protector for your phone.
Better you buy tempered glass than just hoping that the "Gorilla" Glass is enough to handle all scratch and fall. Why not spend few bucks to protect your device that cost hundreds, right ?
Smr, 24 Sep 2015Snapdragon 615 heats up a lot. So buying A8 wont be a good idea. Snapdragon 615 maybe operating at higher temperature compared to other Snapdragon's chipsets but it all come down to the company that use this chipset on their phone. Not all smartphone that use Snapdragon 615 heats up and some heats up like crazy.
The optimization and software is damn important in this aspect to make sure everything going well. Let's hope Samsung can fix this heating problem for Galaxy A8 that use Snapdragon A8.
All other brand who are giving everything in smartphone in a very less price. They are just time pass cell. So use your mind before buying a cellphone.
Have a nice day
Keep your city clean
There is only 2 brand leader in market. Samsung n iphone.
Samsung has lots of feature n cheap price then iphone.
Today everybody use internet full time. So in 30000rs A8 is good option.
If you go only for look then go for iphone and price is almost 60000rs
May I know the free RAM balance during the first time you switch on the A8 before install any applications?
I went to samsung store. That Galaxy A8 is an OCTACORE not a quadcore...
Edi, 23 Sep 2015I plan to by HP, any suggestion which one is better (Galaxy A8 or Zenfone 2).
I am a hard gam... moreSamsung Galaxy A8 better. Why ? Because it has better performance, longer battery life, big and nice screen so you can enjoy your gaming. I can say Galaxy A8 is overall better phone than Zenfone 2.
The only advantage for Zenfone 2 is probably 4GB RAM ( If you planned to buy 4GB version ). Yes it doubles the Galaxy A8 RAM but for now you doesn't need 4GB RAM because right now most of apps only in 32bits and it take long time to make full use of the 4GB RAM. RAM is important in gaming but 2GB RAM right now is adequate for today standards.
What I can say is, take your time to choose what you think the best. I seriously think the only advantage for Zenfone 2 is only 4GB RAM. The other aspects, Galaxy A8 win. The decision is in your hand. Choose wisely and good luck.
Correct me if I said anything wrong. Thanks :)

Sajid SID, 22 Sep 2015Samsung Galaxy A8 Is The Best phone.which Compare with Samsung Galaxy Note3Does not compare to the Galaxy 6 edge plus at all. It is only a bigger A-7 phone.
I plan to by HP, any suggestion which one is better (Galaxy A8 or Zenfone 2).
I am a hard game player
Price is very cheap but premium performance, definitely my next phone.
Jake, 21 Sep 2015You know what its just an option if you want to use the loud speaker because basically speakin... moreWhy use the loud speaker when you can connect it to a good set of sub woofer speaker or nice pair of headsets via 3.5mm jack? Or even via bluetooth speaker like Bose Soundlink or bluetooth headphones like Beats wireless.
