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.
A8 (2018) or S7 Edge ? In my country A8 cheaper but i search for overall performence
I end up buying Note FE for three reasons:
1. Almost the same price to A8 2018 in philippines
26,990 for A8 2018 while 27,990 for Note FE
2. Has better specs, bigger battery, and mighty S-PEN
3. Has MORE FEATURES THAN THAT FREAKIN' MID-RANGER!!!
Kris, 19 Jan 2018Its show'd up in my country. 489 euro for A8 2018. Meanwhile, LG G6 is 439e, P10 is 452e, Xiao... moreIn my country galaxy s7 costs around 460e, meanwhile galaxy a8 costs 468e.Two years old flagman with better specs against newest midranger with no ois/eis,low processor etc.What is your opinion?
Yogi, 16 Jan 2018A8 not launching in India...only A8 plusWhy a8 2018 is not launch in India?
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2018They always did. It started with the S mini series and contined with A series.You need your choice don't compare the Mi phones with Samsung do you think that Mi Mix2 deserves the 33K phone area. I don't think so buy the Phone what like the best.
You can't compare Apple and orange they won't be the same.
Galaxy J8 coming same chipset and ram only difference 720hd killing gaming &battery life HD display &power efficient smooth gaming experience
I like the device but it is over priced at N180,000 in Nigeria. Fine device and sleek to use for daily and officially trends ...
Its show'd up in my country. 489 euro for A8 2018. Meanwhile, LG G6 is 439e, P10 is 452e, Xiaomi Mi 6 445e and Sony XZ1 is 517e. Why to give this much for mid range when most flagship cost less.
kamel alg, 18 Jan 2018Not really bezel-less, poor chipset, no OIS, no 4k recording and flagship price!!! Wtf Samsung... moreThat's what I thought too. That's why I did't wait for this phone and got a Huawei P10 at less than 400Â€. I feel like Samsung started to overprice midrange phones. If they continue like this, they will be overtaken by Huawei.
Rale , 18 Jan 2018I'll buy LG g6 for 400Â€ instead.. G6 has one of the worst flagship battery lives. If Battery is important, A8 is the way to go, chipset is good enough for daily tasks and most games.

Rich watarious, 17 Jan 2018I am excited about the battery life I see out of the small capacity battery. It maks me see th... moreNo. I think it's still slightly overpriced. It should've been around $300-$350. It would be a blast in such price ramge tho.
I liked the specs. But the design, i still choose the old one SGA8 design.
Please Sumsang, I must say your days of doing phones and pricing them very high especially the midrange phones and people buying them like crazy is coming to an end. Why because some companies are doing great midrange phones that uses high components and sell at considerate prices. They are gradually taking over. Please sit up sumsang. Don't consentrate on the flagships alone. Sit up
I am excited about the battery life I see out of the small capacity battery. It maks me see that the chipset is a very serious battery efficient chipset. But I don't like the speaker grills and the thickness and the weight and the expensive price. Should be $ 400 not 500. You will start going down in sales for your mid range phones. Back up, check your prices.
