Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) Review: An affordable Galaxy S9 alternative, but is it good value?


A Galaxy S8 Mini in all but name. Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) Review: An affordable Galaxy S9 alternative, but is it good value?.

Bold screen ; Fast camera

Poor GPU for the price ; Just okay low-light photos ; Limited storage

The Samsung Galaxy A8 has a fairly simple rear camera setup. There’s a 16-megapixel sensor and a powerful single-LED flash.

Samsung Galaxy A8 review: Samsung’s mid-range OnePlus 6 rival


With a dual front-facing camera and an edge-to-edge screen, Samsung's Galaxy A8 sets its sights on the OnePlus 6

Bezel-less design ; Pixel perfect display ; Long-lasting battery life

Same price as the (better) OnePlus 6

The A8 is a good-enough smartphone in its own right, managing to nail most of the necessary hallmarks of smartphone greatness, but the OnePlus 6 is just too strong for its reign to end this soon. And, if I’m honest, its very existence has reset the...

Samsung Galaxy A8


The Galaxy A8 offers some flagship Samsung design traits and features. Dual front cameras is the highlight here but there's tough competition in the mid-range.

Samsung Galaxy A8 seduces with silky smooth, all-metal body (hands-on)


The 5.9mm thick smartphone is a gorgeous looking device that shows off the company's use of metal.

Samsung Galaxy A8 Review


The Samsung Galaxy A8 is a real alternative to a flagship with no major weak links. Buy it for its clever camera, its great screen, or just because you want a strong all-rounder.

+ Great Super AMOLED screen ; + Dual-lens front camera ; + Premium, water-resistant design

- Middling power ; - Average battery ; - Doesn't run latest software

The Samsung Galaxy A8 is a highly-accomplished mid-ranger that in many ways almost seems more like a flagship. It has a great screen, impressive front-facing cameras and a premium design, plus extras like a fingerprint scanner, face recognition and...

The Galaxy A8 and A8+ are meant to bring a number of premium phone features to the mid-end market, though their prices are close to what you'd pay for a flagship phone.

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) hands-on review


Wait what?! So the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) are here to replace the Galaxy A5 (2017) and A7 (2015)? That sure makes perfect sense. Although, from a more serious perspective, what better way to show continuity with the acting flagship...

Samsung's Galaxy A8 is as premium as midrange phones get


The Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus will have plenty of premium touches and cost less than a Galaxy S8 or Note 8.

Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 Smartphone Review


8 follows 5. The Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) succeeds the Galaxy A5 (2017) as the latest device in the popular Galaxy A Series. The €499 (~$615) price tag could prove to be unpopular though. We will find out in our tests whether Samsung can justify this...

premium design ; real Dual-SIM functionality ; accurate GPS ; water and dust proof ; bright, well-tuned Super AMOLED display ; good camera ; fast charging

unable to uninstall pre-installed apps ; PWM display flickering ; internal storage not particularly fast ; throttling under load

With the Galaxy A8 (2018), Samsung has made a well-equipped mid-range smartphone that has a lot of things going for it. The design looks and feels premium while being IP68 rated. The Super AMOLED Infinity-Display is visually impressive, being well...
