Anonymous, 14 Apr 2018Nokia 7+ or Samsung A8 ?Those are both some pretty great phones. I personally would prefer the design and smaller size of A8, but the Nokia got pure android and better update support which I also wouldn't want to miss out one. This is a pretty tough decision.
I have samsung a8 since 25 February and below are few things :
- The rear camera might not be the best thing about the phone but the front dual cameras are awesome.
- The battery life is above average. Even after heavy usage throughout the day, at the end of the day it still has around 40% battery left. And also the fast charging is nice too.
- Screen is very good.
- The overall performance is fast and no lag noticed.
- The IP68 water and dust resistant is the perfect additional feature.

Dualname, 12 Apr 2018Is there any support for OIS stabilization in this model?No but eis...and is very smooth and not shaky....
In fact no, and i don't know why! The previous 2 versions are supporting this feature.

AnonD-750336, 07 Apr 2018But is there any way to fix it? I have send it to Samsung center , it still under checking and try to fix it.
But they told me something strange . If you have a hardware problem even with warranty they will not replace the phone with new one , but how? It's their problem not the customer, and sometime the hardware problem will appear after one week .
Note: they will replace it only if you returned it to them within one week only !!!! If your phone under warranty.
It's surprising me , Because when you buy a new phone and opened because of their problem not a customer.
Finally I am waiting their final report if it's need fixing or just software issue .
Because its not fair that your new phone have been opened because of their mistakes .
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2018Yes i understand and when my screen is off the voice commands works....Wow thank you so much, i was confused because a Samsung representative at the Samsung store told me that you can only do that with Bixby Voice on note8/s8/s9 but on other phones that use S Voice instead of Bixby Voice you have to first maually turn the screen on so it is at least showing the lock screen before the phone will start listening for the "Hi galaxy" command. He even showed me the S Voice app on the A8 and the description clearly says that the screen needs to be on for S Voice to start listening.
Thank you for testing this for me and proving him wrong, it is very nice to know that i don't have to touch the phone to wake it when the screen is off.
500£ for a midranger ? just go for XIAOMI/ZTTE/ONEPLUSs flagships ;)
or go for an older flagship as "I" say "yesterdays flagships are to days midrangers" ;-)
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2018I have a5 2017...and yes you can...woth hi galaxy with the s voice and the ok google woth goog... moreHm it seems you did not understand my question since i know for a fact you can NOT wake the phone with ok google when the screen is off. I am not asking if you can unlock the phone with a voice command, i am asking if you can WAKE the phone when the screen is turned off.
Ok google would only work if you first turn on the screen, and then say ok google to unlock it.
