Samsung Galaxy A8 initial review: The S8 experience for much less

 

It's hard to recommend someone goes to buy a Galaxy S8 after looking at this phone. For a handset that will be significantly cheaper than a flagship,

Dual selfie cameras ; Excellent display ; Premium look and feel

No Android Oreo yet

It's hard to recommend someone goes to buy a Galaxy S8 after looking at this phone. For a handset that will be significantly cheaper than a flagship, many would be hard pressed to tell the difference.

Samsung Galaxy A8 mobile phone review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Samsung Galaxy A8 is the most advanced release from Samsung's mid-range mobile phone line to date. In fact, at a glance you'd be forgiven for thinking it was a high-end model, if it weren't for its reasonable price. With a host of high-end specs...

Samsung Galaxy A8 review: Samsung’s own flagship beater?

 

Great looking, but disappointing performance compared to the competition

With flagship phones costing more than ever – take the £1,000 iPhone X, for example – there’s never been more pressure on manufacturers such as Samsung to deliver excellent “mid-range” phones at competitive prices.

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...

Samsung Galaxy Tab A (8-inch, titanium)

 

Running the latest version of Android , Google's operating system, the Tab A features Samsung's robust and user-friendly TouchWiz interface and -- on top of that -- it offers a few useful and fun software perks. In addition to in-app bonuses for games...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A is affordably priced and offers many premium app perks for free. Its microSD slot accommodates cards up to 128GB.

The plastic construction feels cheap, and the single speaker provides weak audio. The text often appears pixelated.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A is a simple tablet worth picking up for its low price, and its valuable extras sweeten the deal even more.

Samsung Galaxy A8 Review: Elegant phone, good battery and camera; will face-off with OnePlus 2

 

Samsung is on a phone-releasing spree. It has just released its latest A-series handset called the Galaxy A8 in the Indian market for Rs 32,500. We review the Galaxy A8

This slimmest phone from Samsung manages to impress on most fronts, specially the build quality, camera and battery performance. For a 5.7-inch phone, the Galaxy A8 does not feel that bulky thanks to the slim form factor, light weight and thinner...

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

 

Announced first in China, Samsung's classy new Galaxy A8 phone has started popping up in more countries. Singapore's one of the first markets that will be getting the phone, in August, while Samsung's home country of South Korea is set to welcome the...

Samsung's also touting the business-friendly features of the phone such as secure storage service Knox, though given its beautiful design, it will likely be snapped up by consumers who didn't jump on the S6 when it first launched. The hardware isn't...

Samsung Galaxy A8 Review

 

The Galaxy A8 carries the 'thin and light' DNA of the Galaxy A series, and it's also the largest one of them all: it comes with a 5.7-inch display...

Impressively slim and lightweight, feels fairly comfortable to use for the screen size ; Very accurate display colors ; Good battery life ; Supports expandable storage, or dual SIM option ; Quick Launch shortcut for the camera is useful and indeed fast

A bit overpriced ; Maximum display brightness isn't high enough ; TouchWiz is noticeably stuttery ; TouchWiz is visually incohesive, many Themes are half baked ; Fingerprint scanner takes a couple of attempts to read prints ; Slow recharge times ;...

With a full retail price of some $500, the Galaxy A8 is a bit cheaper than most high-end phones, but not much cheaper. It remains in that top tier of devices and as such expectations for it are high.

Samsung Galaxy A8 Mobile Review with Full Specifications

 

Samsung Galaxy A8 isn't a bad device but the Galaxy Note 4 just makes the slim and sassy self of A8 look like a bad option. In India the phone is priced at Rs 31,000

• Sleek metal frame ; • Loaded with new TouchWiz interface ; • Vibrant display ; • Fingerprint secured

• A pricier option ; • Uncomfortably big and thin ; • No OIS on camera

Even if style, like the lady in the advertisement, is paramount to you, a better set of features at a slightly higher price never harmed anyone. Maybe you hardly care if your phone comes with a Pen to use with, or has an IR blaster at its head that can...

Samsung’s Galaxy A8 review: Good mid-range phone, but a bit overpriced

 

Samsung Galaxy A8 is the latest smartphone in this series and is touted as the slimmest ‘Galaxy' phone till now

The only real competitor for the Galaxy A8 at its price-point is the E9+ which has a 20.9 mp camera and 2K display. So the Samsung Galaxy A8 will seem pricey to many, given that India has a new brigade of smartphones offering specs and performance at...
