While Galaxy A8 has expandable storage, dual selfie cams, IP68 waterproofing.
In battery department A8 might have an edge over Mi 8 Se due to its smaller display. Now its totally upto you that which features you prefer more.
Gino76, 19 Aug 2018Shame it doesn't have EIS on the selfie cam which could been remedied with a simple software u... moreYes, the main Camera has EIS and yes you can still customise your on-screen nav buttons after 8.0 update.
A8 user, 22 Aug 2018No, it's not true. You can still edit or customise the on-screen nav buttons just like before ... moreLikewise. I prefer the back button on the left hand side like any other Android out there.
So it is definitely not true about the feature being taken away by Samsung?
Gino76, 19 Aug 2018Is it true that with the Oreo 8.0 update on the A8 & A8+ Samsung has removed the feature t... moreNo, it's not true. You can still edit or customise the on-screen nav buttons just like before the oreo update. I don't like Samsung's button order where the back button is far right so I customised it so that I now have back button far left like in all other android devices.
Nour, 20 Aug 2018Nova 3i or Samsung A8 ?i have spent weeks on the same question . 3i looks and feels super but reading reviews in the brand there is just a feeling that there may be a few things that give the A8 the edge .
I ride bikes and a I.P rated phone would help but a ziplock bad works too..... ill keep the old A5 16 going for a while longer
Galaxy A8 (2018) or Xiaoami Mi 8 SE ?
At the moment, both of them are available for less than 300 euros, which is better?
Gino76, 18 Aug 2018I plan to get the Galaxy A8 due to positive reviews. But I have concerns and queries: 1. As p... moreit has no autofocus but has the other options.i can still change the button orientation on 8.0

And yes it is u... moreShame it doesn't have EIS on the selfie cam which could been remedied with a simple software update considering it has pride itself with dual camera. Tho saying that I am not a vlogger and don't use the selfie cam other than for purely selfies.
The rear/main camera do have EIS am i correct?
Can you still customise the on-screen nav buttons underneath the main main screen can u?
Is it true that with the Oreo 8.0 update on the A8 & A8+ Samsung has removed the feature that allows you to edit or customise the on-screen nav buttons underneath the main home screen?

IP68 water proofing and the single rear lens of A8 2018 captures better pics than dual lens of Mate 10 lite.

And yes it is updated to Samsung experience 9.0 and android 8.0
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?
