Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) Review


The Galaxy A8+ 2018 is a mid-range phone made with premium materials, sporting a gorgeous, big AMOLED screen as its biggest highlight and featuring the Samsung Experience interface...

Beautiful Super AMOLED screen ; True Dual SIM phone ; Sturdy build quality ; Good photo quality in daylight

Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+ hands-on: Ever closer to the S series


Since its arrival in late 2014, the Galaxy A series has been viewed as the next in line behind the Galaxy S series, Samsung's flagship smartphone. At first, the metal frame was one of the most visible ‘borrowed' features in the devices that were...

Samsung Galaxy A8+ review


The A-series gets the Infinity display

Premium design ; Bright, crisp display ; Good front camera

Expensive for what it offers ; Back camera needs improvement ; Android 7.1.1 out of the box

The Galaxy A8+ is a pretty good mid-end phone but Samsung has priced it too close to its flagship line.

Samsung Galaxy A8+(2018) review: Stunning design, display but can it beat OnePlus 5T?


Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus (2018) review: Galaxy A8+ is officially the company's first phone for 2018 with flagship-like specifications and here's how it performs overall.

The Samsung Galaxy A8+ joins the list of mid-range premium phones in the market and will compete with the OnePlus 5T, Honor View 10. The Galaxy A8+ might not have 8GB RAM or 128GB storage, but performance is not lacking in any way. The rear and front...
