I recently purchased the pink version for my gf and she absolutely loves it. The battery lasts a full day of use. The back camera is great. The front camera not so great. We did some low light selfies together and it was dark and grainy.
QC3.0 works great, but not sure why the original charger it came with is a standard non-QC. But once we got a Car and Wall QC3.0 charger its great.
Wish there was wireless charger as well
She doesn't mind the thickness and she said it felt good in her hand. The phone feels nice to the touch but the back is plastic. Still a solid feel to it.
Overall if you not a gamer and don't need the top of the line Snapdragon this a good bet. The Pink definitely will attract female users

Anonymous, 07 Jun 2018Can the fingerprint reader be used for anything else besides for just unlocking the device? The fingerprint scanner can also be used for Google Services. I know it can at least be used to make payments to the Google Play store, for music, games and whatnot.
AnonD-481725, 05 Jun 2018Dude, you have no idea, the A8 2k18 is worst for gaming due to the Mali GPU, adreno is way better. Dude you have no idea about mali gpu. M already checked adreno Gpu heat up very early nd Samsung Exynos is very fast for gaming you can check on YouTube

compatibility bro, Samsung is shit when it comes to updates, slow and when it finally rolls out it messes your phone up and if one company (Qualcomm) makes both CPU and GPU ,then son...you got yourself one solid great performance. and don't back your words with "S8 or S9 is better with Exynos!" well yes ofc...on a samsung device since it is their own CPU they can optimize it as much as they want for better performance and low battery drain....but does that mean it is the best ? nah. the Oneplus 6 for an example. wiped out Samsung and even though it has the same Snapdragon 845 found on an S9 that couldn't beat the Exynos S9 version.

Adreno is better, not to mention the Compatibility and also SONY's stock-ish optimized UI :D f*ck samsung bruh, let me tell you something the moment you just update it even if just a security Patch update you gonna regret it fr. I was a sony user and tried samsung and I'm getting back to sony.

Disable noise cancellation (When making a call while phone is on my car dashboard, the interlocutor can hear me perfectly on Galaxy A5 2017/Galaxy S4/SE W810i/SE K750i/SE C510; but on the XA2 no-one can hear me; I assume due to aggressive noise cancellation)
Decent default keyboard (Space bar is notoriously hard to hit on Sonys - pains me to say it but the best experience I've had is with Samsung's keyboard)
Default control media volume with volume keys (At homescreen, without media playing, I'd like to be able to press volume key to change media volume rather than ringtone volume)
Bluetooth audio volume persistence across disconnects (Bluetooth audio is reset to halfway each time I reconnect) - Can be fixed with https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.darken.bluemusic&hl=en_GB
Swipe up on camera to switch to front/rear
Single tap mode (Don't have to swipe to answer calls)
