Samsung Galaxy A8 Review

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.

On a positive note, the Galaxy A8 does deliver in terms of looks: it’s impressively slim and light, with a narrow side bezels that make it fairly comfortable to use despite its large, 5.7” display (it's still a big phone that does not fit well in tight jeans pockets). read more →

  • Impressively slim and lightweight
  • 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
