What is better? The A8/A8+ or Huawei nova 2i (aka mate 10 plus lite)?
Anonymous, 11 Mar 2018If this was the size off the S9 with all the functions and speed.I meant to say if the s9 was the size off the A8.
Screen size: bear in mind that when you watch 16:9 videos on galaxy A8, the size of the video is actually 5". Bottom line, A8 has quite small screen and is quite compact phone by today's standards.
laxman, 05 Mar 2018S8 is better then A8 everything is fine in both mobile but S8 is better in camera performance. What a strange question that is. Of course is better, it's 200 - 300 eur more expensive. Ridiculous comparison.
Daki, 05 Mar 2018S7 or a8? And why?Both are OK If you can get them for around 350 eur. Otherwise not a smart purchase. S7 has better GPU, for gaming, and faster storage. Consider also LG G6, is better than both of these phones. I own A8, by the way...
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2018Considering they both price with Nokia 7 Plus or differences up to 20 USD. Which is good overall?Its good midrange device but in this price u can buy many other devices which has more better specs like honor v10, Samsung c9 pro of u can increase your budget u can go for oneplus 5t that's good device
I bought because he has what many dont have:
Ideal size for me
Long battery life
Excellente interface by samsung
And coast for me 350 euros in my country, where you can get one with is specs? Attention, with quality materials and software too
Battery tests of gsmarena often are misleading, also the comparisons with other devices here are not very meaningful for real life.
I had experiences with the following handhelds before buying th A8:
Galaxy Note 1, 2 and 4
HTC One M8
Xperia Z1 compact and Z3 compact
Moto X-play DS
Honor 6 plus, 8 and 9
iphone 7 and 8
and I never had a device with such bad battery life before. (2, sometimes 3 percent drain in every hour only using standby-mode (always-on display, dualsim and wlan are activated)
The Galaxy A8 is a very good midranger, I am using it since 2 weeks now. But please do not buy it, if you want a device with good battery live. Do not compare the test-result above (92 hours endurance rating) with the shown endurance rating of other devices here. I promise you, you will be disappointed.

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.
