If this phone having more memory and dedicated slot for Sd card..defenitely i will buy this mobile.
Is there any posibilities to modify these things?
I own the Korean a8 Star, and it only has Samsung Pay mini. Same from other countries, I have read.
Yes, it has gorilla glass (but an older verison) which is almost half cheaper to replace than Note 9.
Just bought A8 star for MYR1050. Good vibrant screen but not as great as note 9 that I owned before. Otherwise it is pretty smooth with occasional hiccups sometimes. Generally worth the money that I have spent. This phone shall be good to be used for few months until S10 comes out

Oh, and I want to update that I found another app that fixes the exposure and focus issues. the Open Camera app is free, and has Exposure Lock and Focus Lock. I'm so happy! Apparently, this is an issue with many Samsung Cameras.
KMS (Mumbai) , 25 Dec 2018Why the display (2.5D) and the back body (3D) are made of normal glass ? Why not gorilla glass ? It's gorilla Glass, from the specs I read. Just not the newest Gorilla Glass. Actually, I'm quite happy about it, because the phone store said it costs half as much to replace the front and back of this entire phone, than replacing broken glass on the Note 9.
Deb, 04 Jan 2019I want to buy this phn...can u tell me the camare pic quality & heating issue...There is NO heating issue. I have no idea why people are complaining about that. I have come to the conclusion that there are people who just want to hate on Samsung, or are fanboys of their particular phone brand. The camera photo quality is very good. The downfall of the camera is that it is missing some ability to control higher functions in video mode. It can record very good quality photos and video, but I have found that even though it has some software image stabilization, the brightness of the video recording keeps ramping up and down with small changes in lighting. I cannot find a way to keep the shutter from automatically doing this (no manual control). This is one thing I dislike about my A8 Star. But for photos, and static video in good lighting, it does very well. Night photos look quite good, at this price point. Selfie photos and "live focus" where it blurs the background around the person in the photo are really good, and I love it. The best thing about this phone is the big color screen. It's very nice for watching youtube videos. I'm not experiencing any lag. I did have to turn my touch screen sensitivity up, because I am using a really low quality screen protector. Samsung phones can balk at those. I purchased a better one, but am waiting to replace it. I am taking some getting used to the Samsung keyboard (and I replaced it with Gboard, which helped a lot). I ran an LG phone for over 4 years, and had more key space for my fingers.
