How's the battery life on this phone for those actually using it?
Snowman, 23 Jan 2018a8 or lg g6? You can't compare flagship to a mid-ranger. G6 has more interesting features than the a8 2018.
But, as always, it depends on others which they will pick that suits them the most in daily use.
Snowman, 23 Jan 2018a8 or lg g6? LG G6 is a flagship smartphone, the a8 is nowhere even close to it.
Snowman, 23 Jan 2018a8 or lg g6? for me LG g6 , nothing beats more storage.. well almost all the same specs except the storage and the display tech.. if you are amoled lover then go for A8, if you are IPS lcd lover go for Lg g6..

They'd just want to get updates from the manufacturer itself. For those people, lineage OS doesn't mean squat.

Dont be stupid.
Anonymous, 22 Jan 2018EoL? Well LineageOS ROMS says hello!!!! with Snapdragon Variants.But will they be officially supported by Samsung? No. Not everyone will want to unlock their phone's bootloader, root it and install a custom ROM
This mobile phone is costly but it is amazing. It has only one rear camera (at the back), its picture is quite good even i do a picture in low light place ( auto mode works great). It battery drains slow , so no need to take powerbank with :). For heavy use its battery cannot last full day but its charging time is fast ( fully charge maybe one hour). The sound quality & signal strengh is very good . This device has many nice functions ( up to date). It is far better than SG A9 pro 2017 or A8, especially its camera...
Hi the a8 samsung galaxy 2016 model will be current model battery back 3300 for 2018 were as new a8 model as less specifications of battery back is 3000, at least they have increased compared 2016 model ,
The Samsung Mobile should think logical before releasing phone hence compared others mobile are good features with the price,

AnonD-732240, 21 Jan 2018S7 is a flagship A8 is midrange this by itself means a lotS7 is a flagship of 2016, A8 is an upper midranger of 2018. Honestly I'd get the A8 just for the better support (S7 will reach EOL soon), better design, USB type C and the significantly better battery life.

Anonymous, 19 Jan 2018They always did. It started with the S mini series and contined with A series.I agree the S mini series was completely trash but the A series isn't, especially the 2017 A series phones. My A5 2017 has a few features which some flagships still lack. But I don't think if the 2017 A phones were priced this high when they released.
The A8 is undeniably a great phone, but at this price, it's hard to recommend it. After a few months, prices should come down, making it a more attractive option.
