February Security patch via OTA released 400MB update last week for A8 and A8+. The changelog vaguely mentions of Camera improvement.
Anyone saw any improvement in the rear camera performance? Especially, the autofocus issue on the video mode. Picture quality improvement. Picture autofocus improvements. At least 1080p at 60FPS?
No prejudice or biased answers. Just need your honest opinons :)
Your answers would help me decide whether to buy this or not!
Thank you :)
Eh still that annoying speaker on the right side, why couldn't have they put it to the botton like every other phone does nowadays...
Daki, 05 Mar 2018S7 or a8? And why?A8 - Battery life (close to dramáticamente better) , Android P maybe Q, Amazing selfies, Video stabilization, screen (yes, its better, hand tested), newer, last Samsung UI which is waaaaay better, audio in general
S7 - raw power, games, slightley better rear camera (specially in low light, there its clearly superior), edge variant if you like it, might be even cheaper with a good de al.
For 500Â€ (release price in Europe) - > most overpriced phone ever.
Current official price: 360Â€ - > Best value for money phone in the last years.
But no one will ever know because all reviewers said the same thing: not bad, but pricey. However, if purchased at 360Â€, the judgment would be: BUY IT NOW.
Sad how Samsung missed an incredible oportunity to show how they can also build the best midranger for a reasonable price. There has not been any marketing campaing whatsoever, no advertisements... I really think Samsung commited a huge mistake by releasing this phone on a Rush.
By the way, at the moment I own both A8 2018 and View 10. I'm going to sell the View 10.
Angela, 28 Feb 2018Hi everyone. Which would you recommend, the S8 or the A8? They seem to be quite similar.S8 is better then A8 everything is fine in both mobile but S8 is better in camera performance.

Angela, 28 Feb 2018Hi everyone. Which would you recommend, the S8 or the A8? They seem to be quite similar.Definitely S8... Because of Camera, display, qhd Screen... And more... Further if u wait u can also go with new nokia 7 plus because of best camera battery and speedy Android latest oreo software and monthly security updates and further software updates like Android P will be first released to Nokia and pixel devices Samsung always late software updates by 6 to 8 months... further u decide...

Anonymous, 01 Mar 2018I'm weighing between this phone and Nokia 7 plus. Which one do you think is better? I'm lookin... moreI would definitely go for Nokia 7 plus, faster, better, cheaper and overall more value for money.
I bought an A8 2018. but I had a problem with its speaker. when I type in any app, the speaker misses some sound of click. and when a notification sound starts, the first part of it does not play. Does anybody have this problem ?
