I plan to get the Galaxy A8 due to positive reviews. But I have concerns and queries:
1. As per Samsung's "official" roadmap the Android Pie update remains slow & dates are ambigous (unlike Sony's)
2. Tho Samsung had made great improvements the UX's performance still feel sluggish by today's standards, non useful features and updates are again slower like before i.e. same year devices gets first priority-ish (S9, A8 & Note 9) and last year's devices gets second priority i.e. "early 2019" for the updates.
3. Does the selfie camera have autofocus, wide angle option and EIS?
4. Has the A8 been updated now to Oreo 8.0 & Samsung Experience 9.0?

Its some app running up in the background and consuming battery. Do clear all apps from ram and regularly put certain apps on sleep from device maintainance. There's nothing wrong with your phone's battery

I bought the Samsung galaxy a8 and it's actually awesome it was like using an galaxy s8 without edge screen I really love this phone.
I would say the A8 just for the quick charge alone, but performance should be better, too. But if can get the Mate 10 Lite for like, 60-70% of the price of the A8, that should be good, too in my opinion. Depends on how much do you want to pay.
