For 500 euros I can buy next one iPhone se. OK the price of new one iPhone se might be a little more expensive next year,but still I will choose this one.
Mirkran, 20 Dec 2017Design wise: looks good enough. The metal/glass design never had been a problem for me. Perfo... moreYep and I think that even if they don't have OIS in the smartphone, they should have put EIS, at least u have one of the image stabilization methods
500 for what? Big screen and small battery? And it looks like S8 hell no.
And GPU Mali? WTF.
Among all possible GPu Mali is the worst possible option.
If I were you guys, you should buy a phone with Android Oreo as first official ROM. Search for Project Treble. It is only mandated by Google to manufacturers when they use Android Oreo on new smartphones. For me, A9 2019 and A9+ 2019 (probable monikers) would be the best bet in terms of Project Treble.
Or why not wait for S9 and S9+? I read it will come earlier than the usual S launch.
Price of A8 2018 is at $499. A8+ 2018 at $599.
I don't know if these prices are for 4GB RAM or 6GB.
Still, the price is a huge leap from A5 2017 and A7 2017 introductory prices.
For now, I will stick to my A5 2017. Still performs great and can still compete with modern new generation of midrange phones though I really want an Infinity Display.
TheLostWanderer, 19 Dec 2017So... notification LED, dual front camera, same battery as S8, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage?... moreProcessor, OIS, Dual-Pixel and 4K video, 2K display, curved screen and wireless charging which make it knocked-down by S8. I think they ripped off the OIS on A-series is to make more difference between high-end and mid-range devices
TheLostWanderer, 19 Dec 2017So... notification LED, dual front camera, same battery as S8, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage?... moreI see the A series like the S's little brother. Has some flagship features, but not all. And I guess it is directed towards customers who want flagship features without paying the flagship price (even tough the S series is not the expensive, comparing it to the Note series, or other phones).
