Galaxy A8 is a decent phone.
I'm thankful that I did not choose Nokia 7 Plus, Huawei P20 Lite (Nova 3E) or Huawei Nova 3i. Camera is not bad when it comes to the quality of the image. I can take good pictures and DXO give a score of 79 for the quality which is not bad for a Mid-range phone. Before I bought this, I have my iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone 7. I can say that it can compete with these two iPhones. Build quality is also nice. My speaker is working perfectly and it's running with the latest update (Oreo 8.0.0) from UAE. I'm just worrying about the battery because I think the hours for screen time is not enough, maybe we should get 1 or 2hrs extra on batt life but overall, it's pretty well good phone.
Perfect mobile for me. I wanted a latest phone with dual sim, water proof, not a tall/big size and no edge screen. So after research I had to choose the A8 and I am happy with it. It's compact and solid in hand, not tall like plus sizes, not curved. It almost comes with all the latest features of a flagship phone. Before getting it I had iphone x which I had to sell because that's not for me, also tried s8 and didn't like the edge screen. I am not in consciousness or show off to have expensive phone. I wanted something practical for my hand and usage, this galaxy is the ideal choice for me.
Does anybody realize the rear camera are more worst after the oreo updated? Especially at low light condition..
I never should have done your stupid update. It took away individual text ringtones. Why take away things?
SirPaski, 04 Sep 2018I own this phone and it has an audio stutter problem while audio is played through loudspeaker... moreSure there is a software fix on US version and they have exynos ?
Then with a US prepaid simcard, everybody can change firmware country correct ?
Seems to good to be true for those who are stuck. Me I didn't buy it cause of this bug.
Shaad, 03 Sep 2018A8 or A8+ Who is best??
With A8, you'll have more crispy display than the plus version because of the same resolution but more ppi for smaller display. On the other hand the A8 is much more handy than the A8+.
But if someone prefers the bigger display, then that's their own choice.
I'll go for the non plus version. (though the battery is less than the plus version, but 3000 mAh is a decent battery too for a whole 24hrs long day.)
betonassi, 03 Sep 2018Hello. Does this phone support USB on the go? Yes, it supporting OTG.
Does anyone know how to open the back of this phone to check the battery or sim card?
How can I download dictionary for WhatsApp in this phone?
I own this phone and it has an audio stutter problem while audio is played through loudspeaker. It seems that a lot of people have this problem and for now it's only being fixed in the US via an software update. As for the rest of the world Samsung doesn't seem to care.
I am facing a problem with my newly bought Samsung Galaxy A8 phone. The problem is, when I use "imo" app for VOIP call and in the same time if a normal phone call comes to my phone during that VOIP call over "imo" app:; either i receive that normal phone call or not, when me or other party disconnect the normal call, my phone restarts automatically. For your info the software versions of my phone is, Android version - 8.0.0, Samsung experience version - 9.0, Kernel version - 4.4.13-13824581-QB19264948. Is it a software bug or my phone has a problem. Please someone help me. kindly let me know how i can get rid of this problem.
Thanks for your kind help.
