Android27, 19 Nov 2016Shares the same SoC with the Galaxy S6. Old ? Yeah. Pricey ? Hell Yeah. Value ? Not if you're ... moreSetting aside screen size, the main advantage of the a8 over the s6 should be battery performance. The a8 has almost 30% more battery capacity (2550 vs 3300) and the 1080p screen should help a little too. They have the same chips of course, but you could say the GPU of the a8 is also "effectively" stronger than the s6 because of the lower resolution.
The main camera on the s6 will definitely beat the a8 due to the OIS, especially for low light.
legend, 27 Nov 2016are you saying that it is nice phone right?Just commenting based on the specs and early reviews. I
Any intelligent comments regarding the battery life on the Samsung galaxy A8(2016)model.

AnonD-593645, 03 Nov 2016Lack of usb type & no fast charge.. hmmpp.no i thinl it has fast charging also
Note 4 , 06 Nov 2016I am interested in this mobile but need to know is there any screen protection (Gorilla Glass ) ???yes i think it has corning gorrila glass 4
This is pretty compelling. Best processor of the last generation paired with a big battery and a lean 1080p screen. Should have significantly better battery life than the SD820+3000mAh phones and have great performance into the future with the light 1080p display. I like the metal build over the glass of the S6/Note5 and the SD card is a huge advantage too. Main downsides for me are the weight and the lack of OIS, but I'm thinking the superior sensor may still beat OIS phones like the OP3. 3gb ram might be a little tight for touchwhiz too. Street price in Taiwan is a little over $400--that's already cheaper than a Note5.

Gagan, 21 Nov 2016i have a question , as this phone has exynos 7420 , and samsug j7 prime has exynos 7880 ( i gu... moreActually, the J7 Prime use 7870 the octa-core a53. The 7420 which also used in Note5 and S6 are quad a53+quad a57 and at higher clock than the 7870. So the 7420 should be faster than the 7870. I don't know how about the 7880 which some sources say quad A53+ quad A72 but at 28nm and slightly low clock vs 7420.
Wished it comes in 64gb variant in India.
It is a very special mobile as it comes with Grace UX and metal unibody design.
Wished it comes in 64gb variant.
I don't want waterproof, no type c, no wireless charging, no 4k recording, no OIS.
This is a very special mobile and I will buy it but as I am a dual sim user so I have to compromise on 32gb only. Really wished it comes in 64gb variant Sammy. Hope you do this for me.
i have a question , as this phone has exynos 7420 , and samsug j7 prime has exynos 7880 ( i guess ) .. SO isn't it clearly shows that samsung j7 prime processor is better than samsung a8 processor.?
Have u guys seen or watched c4tech hands- on of this phone? The camera is quite good, better colors than the A9 pro frim the few samples, but quite disappointed why they skimmed so much on the pro mode of the camera...
ali, 12 Nov 2016old processor . not ois . very expensive. not worth .Shares the same SoC with the Galaxy S6. Old ? Yeah. Pricey ? Hell Yeah. Value ? Not if you're looking for an alternative to the S6.
As someone already pointed out, if you still need a bigger screen than the C9 pro is somewhat close in performance. Although still being a mid-range at best.
The Exynos 7420 is last year's flagship grade SoC.
