Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) Review

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) is not a successor to a particular A-series phone. Visually, the A8 is indeed closer to the S8. The similarly shaped and sized curved glass-sandwich design, the tall AMOLED screen, and the fingerprint on the back are some of the features which show the close relation between the Galaxy A8 and the S8.

The Galaxy A8 (2018) captures video up to 1080p/30fps, so no 4K recording out of this one.read more →
  • Futuristic design, logical fingerprint scanner positioning
  • Class-leading Super AMOLED screen
  • Great battery life at 92 hours, fast charging
  • Excellent choice of processor with powerful A73 cores
  • Impressive image quality (both rear and selfie) for the class
  • No 4K video recording
  • Mediocre GPU
  • No Oreo at launch
  • Pricey

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) Review

The Galaxy A8 is a phone selling at the same price as the OnePlus 5T, but it does not quite feel as well executed and it definitely feels overpriced.

While it technically has an “Infinity Display”, you can definitely see the bezels on the side and chins, and it does not quite have the futuristic, classy look of the S8. And while it has a cool dual front camera, the main camera is actually not great, especially at night, and it does not support 4K video recording.read more →
  • Lush Super AMOLED screen
  • Smoother performance than S8 in daily use
  • True Dual SIM phone
  • Sturdy build quality
  • Good camera quality in daylight
  • Pricey for what it is
  • No Android Oreo on board
  • Rather poor video recording quality, no 4K
  • Not great for low-light photos
  • Only 32GB of on-board storage
