If only text message (SMS), you may uninstall any other text message app you have. It may be crashed with the third party apps. If it is not solved, try to update the official update of Samsung (i.e security patch). If it is still unsolved, sorry.

If you concern with the result of rear camera, do not buy this. This one is only perfect if the light is good and shiny. The result in low light condition is not bad, just not perfect if you used to do with premium phones.
If you are heavily game player, the answer is no for both A8/A8+ 2018.
If you are trendy person, it is definitely not for you. The overall design is conservatif although it has taller display.
The Gorilla protector is only for display. Its version is 4. No protector for back glass.
The face scanner is just ordinary one, no infrared scanner.
The finger scanner is just good, Xiaomi has better one. But it is valid for any Samsung phone, I think.

Hi! Can anyone help me. I'm thinking of buying this phone. In my country I can get it at 310 USD. Should I get this 1 yr old phone right now? Will the price drop globally if they release the Galaxy S10?

If you are bothered with low light camera's result of A8 2018, the old premium Samsung phones, like S7 or S8 (sorry, we don't talk about other brands) have a better result much in low light condition.
For Samsung M20, well it may have a slightly better chipset, but I do not think that the performance and the camera is better than A8 2018.

Outdoor image quality are good. Front facing camera are also great. But yeah...
And look there is samsung M20 come out... cheaper with better chipset..

Perhaps, Xiaomi use third supplier's camera and Samsung use its own camera. The Samsung's real pocket/pro camera itself is not good.
Galaxy A8 is just for people who want a just good smartphone in every features, including NFC. You won't be dissapointed.
fjlooarneas, 30 Jan 2019Hi!
I am looking to buy a smartphone and dont want to spend more than 300Â€.
My question is,... moreIMHO, A8 is a solid complete midrange phone. But for now, there are more better choices in the market. I have heard about Redmi note 7, it is a low cost smartphone with better chipset and better camera than a8.
I often feel disappointed when I want to take a picture and the results are not so good ...
