Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) hands-on review


Wait what?! So the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) are here to replace the Galaxy A5 (2017) and A7 (2015)? That sure makes perfect sense. Although, from a more serious perspective, what better way to show continuity with the acting flagship...

Samsung's Galaxy A8 is as premium as midrange phones get


The Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus will have plenty of premium touches and cost less than a Galaxy S8 or Note 8.

Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 Smartphone Review


8 follows 5. The Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) succeeds the Galaxy A5 (2017) as the latest device in the popular Galaxy A Series. The €499 (~$615) price tag could prove to be unpopular though. We will find out in our tests whether Samsung can justify this...

premium design ; real Dual-SIM functionality ; accurate GPS ; water and dust proof ; bright, well-tuned Super AMOLED display ; good camera ; fast charging

unable to uninstall pre-installed apps ; PWM display flickering ; internal storage not particularly fast ; throttling under load

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) Review


The Galaxy A8 2018 is Samsung's newest upper mid-range phone, but with its similar glass-and-metal design and styling, we'll forgive you if you mistake it for the flagship Galaxy S8...

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

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) review: a more affordable S8? | AndroidPIT


At less than 500 dollars, can the new Samsung Galaxy A8 rival real high-end smartphone? With an impressive 18.5:9 display, it may very well be able to do it. Find out everything you need to know about the new device in our comprehensive review.

With the Galaxy A8, Samsung has brought the A series a little bit closer to the S line. The Galaxy A5 (2017) was already much like the Galaxy S7, but it was more affordable. The A8 has improved capabilities, which means its price has gone up as well....

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) Review: An affordable Galaxy S9 alternative, but is it good value?


A Galaxy S8 Mini in all but name. Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) Review: An affordable Galaxy S9 alternative, but is it good value?.

Bold screen ; Fast camera

Poor GPU for the price ; Just okay low-light photos ; Limited storage

The Samsung Galaxy A8 has a fairly simple rear camera setup. There’s a 16-megapixel sensor and a powerful single-LED flash.

Samsung Galaxy A8


The Galaxy A8 offers some flagship Samsung design traits and features. Dual front cameras is the highlight here but there's tough competition in the mid-range.

Samsung Galaxy A8 review: Samsung’s mid-range OnePlus 6 rival


With a dual front-facing camera and an edge-to-edge screen, Samsung's Galaxy A8 sets its sights on the OnePlus 6

Bezel-less design ; Pixel perfect display ; Long-lasting battery life

Same price as the (better) OnePlus 6

The A8 is a good-enough smartphone in its own right, managing to nail most of the necessary hallmarks of smartphone greatness, but the OnePlus 6 is just too strong for its reign to end this soon. And, if I’m honest, its very existence has reset the...
