Samsung Galaxy A8 Overview

Published :

The Good

  • Battery life
  • Super Slim

The Bad

  • Over Priced
  • Sub par performance
  • Moderate Camera

The Bottom Line

Sold as a Mid Range device but at flagship price point makes it a very confusion device to buy. Performance and Camera along with internals doesn't justify the price tag of the device and are better off getting a Flagship device instead like The Galaxy S6

Design and Build:

The Samsung Galaxy A8 is standard Samsung affair and looks like most of its galaxy line up.
What stands out about the device is its large 5.7 inch device and is the thinnest samsung device at only 5.9 mm making it quite easily to hold and use even with its large screen.
Metallic finish on the back screams premium and feels like a solid device in hand.
Phone comes with a hybird sim slot meaning you can use the 2nd slot as a dual sim or a SD card but not both at the same time.
Design is well balanced and phone feels great in hand.

 

Camera Performance:

The Galaxy A8 comes with 16 MP Camera on the back and 5 mp in the back.
It takes great pictures under good light conditions and handles it self quite well even under artificial light and is one of the best camera’s in this price bracket, but starts failing considerably as the light gets lower and more of a mid range camera .
It also lacks the OIS and the quality form the Flagship Galaxy s6 along with focus speed and when it costs nearly as much as s6 it's hard to make a comparison.

 

Display:

The Galaxy a8 comes with large 5.7inch Full HD Super Amoled screen.
Which has great viewing angles and vivid colors along with deep blocks, its quite good even under sunlight and over all and great screen like most of Samsung's Super Amoled panel

 

Performance:

The phone is powered by a mid range Samsungs own Exynos 5430 Octa which is an Octa core chip 4 A15 Cores clocked at 1.8 ghz and 4 A7 cores clocked at 1.3 Ghz.
Device performs quite decently but its pretty underpowered for this price bracket that it sells it and the processor used in it could have been considerably better.
Day 2 day tasks are done without too much trouble but the high end gaming the device does lag a bit and that is not a good thing when u consider the price.

 

Software:

Phone runs Samsungs latest Touchwiz UI same as the Galaxy s6 and runs on Android 5.1.1 touchwiz on this is toned down considerably and is quite snappy still not close to stock Android but is a considerable improvement over their previous versions of Touchwiz

 

Battery Life:

Galaxy a8 comes with 3050 Mah battery .
Battery is one of the positives of the device and it easily lasts day with moderate to heavy usage and shouldn’t be a major concern for most of the people.

 

Overall:

The Galaxy A8 is suppose to be a mid-range device but the pricing doesn’t make much sense. Since its almost as much as the flagship Galaxy s6 and lacks behind it in pretty much every single aspect of the device like performance , camera , screen quality and only thing it has going for it compared to the Galaxy S6 is battery life

Hi you can go for LG G4 Dual Sim   Comes with top end s808 processor easily one of the best screens 5.5 inch 2k display panel and also arguably the best camera in the market right now  3k mah battery  SD card slot and updated to 6.0 already in India.

Sir is it now confirmed  that galaxy  a8 will get marshmallow update

Hi Samsung has announced that all devices launched in 2015 will get it but there no exact time lines and mid range devices all get it really late. 

Samsung Mobile

asked

I want best mobile with fingerprint sensor under 30000

asked

Hi The only phone available from samsung within your budget with finger print sensor is the Samsung Galaxy A8.  However overall it is not a good phone at all. The phone isn't really worth half of what it costs also since similar phones with same hardware cost just 13k to 14k and chip is known to over heat a lot and wont be as smooth since its a mid range which will lag with Samsungs Touch wiz skin over time. Samsung Galaxy A8 A better choice would be the LG Nexus 5X 32GB. The phone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and is one of the smoothest and best performing devices in the market and upgraded specs should make it one of the best overall devices in the market especially if you want Android in purest form. LG Nexus 5X 32GB

Why Is Nexus 6 Better Than Samsung A8??

asked

Why is nexus 6 better than samsung a8?? According to specs the a8 has a octacore processor and fingerprint sensor... but the nexus 6 has a quard core processor and no finger print sensor... so why is nexus 6 better in speed???

asked

Hi octa core and quad core dual cores mean nothing it just means they have more cores not how powerful or effecient they are. Just like how 12 megapixel DSLR will take significantly better pic's than a 20 megapixel phone camera can ever take. the processor in Nexus 6   is nearly twice as fast as the octa core cpu in the galaxy a8 and a8 is a midrange specced device at best and the nexus 6 is a high end flagship device with performance to match that moniker. Finger print scanner on the a8 is not that great or modern i dont see the point in it if its not fast and effecient.  Nexus 6

Whuch One Is Best Samsung A8 Or Noye 3

asked

asked

Hi Note 3 is a much better option because A8 is a midrange device at best.  Note 3 even though older its a flagship device so it has better components and and camera. But if u aren't set on Samsung there are better options in the market Samsung isn't really great choice unless you are buying the S6/edge, note 4 , or note 5.

WICH IS BEST HCT ONE E9+ OR SAMSUNG GALAXY A8.

asked

A8 is quad core and 2GB RAM whereas E9+ is 3GB RAM and Octa core. And also screen resolution and camera as best in E9+. I need a good battery at least for 1 day on heavy usage. As per the feature score on your website a8 is best but I find specs on e9+ better than A8 and also other sites are rating e9+ as better than A8. I am confused which one to buy, please help me out.

asked

Both phones are quite bad for the price. They are not worth it since the E9 uses a mediatek cpu but it has a very weak GPU so the gaming performance on it will be sub par and over all performance also wont be great. the Galaxy A8 is a mid range phone specs at best with very high price tag with the hardware it has and samsung touch skin on android it will start lagging over time a lot. Since your budget is around 30k I'd suggest going for either Nexus 6   if you want a large screen or stretching the budget slightly to 34 and going for Samsung Galaxy S6   Nexus 6 has large 2k screen decent camera and will get android updates super fast and its easily the smoothest phone in the market because it runs stock android and gets updates directly form Google. Galaxy S6 on the other hand has the most powerful mobile chipset in the world right now and it also has the best screen and camera in android phones right now. Its battery life is not the greatest but it comes with fast charging so phone charges 0 to 100 in less than 2 hours .

Best price and the what is a coparable phone

asked

Hi  you can find the best price here : Samsung Galaxy A8   but the phone isn't really worth half of what it costs also since similar phones with same hardware cost just 13k to 14k. and chip is known to over heat a lot and wont be as smooth since its a mid range which will lag with Samsungs Touch wiz skin over time. you are better off spending 4k more and getting the Samsung Galaxy S6   or OnePlus One 64GB   

Which One Is Better

asked

Samsung Galaxy E7 or Samsung Glaxy s4

asked

Hi Jamal, Between these two the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500   is better. because even though its old it comes with flagship specs of that time which makes it better than current gen low end phones. But if your budget is around 15k Xiaomi Mi4   is a much better option spec wise which matches and exceeds the galaxy S5 in many ways with 3k mah battery and 3 GB ram. If you want something nice with a more well known brand you can even go with Moto G 3rd Gen   it was just launched and its one of the smoothest android devices around and it also great a great camera thanks to having the same camera hardware as the much costlier Nexus 6.
