Samsung Galaxy A8
Samsung Galaxy A8
Samsung is one of the biggest names in the mobile phone world and sits right at the top with Apple being their closest rivals. Like all good handset manufacturers, Samsung offers a range of phones to suit all budgets and their Galaxy range is no exception. The Samsung Galaxy A8 is basically a cutdown version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and packs a pretty good punch in terms of spec and performance when you consider the price tag.
Samsung Galaxy A8 Design & Screen
Not quite an infinity screen the Samsung Galaxy A8 has two small bezels at the top and bottom of this handset. The phone has a glass front and back with a band of metal around the middle which is what you would expect from a higher end phone. The screen is AMOLED which makes the display excellent in terms of quality and brightness, and it has a 1080 x 2220 resolution.
It has a robust design that offers water resistance to IP68 and scuff resistance glass. It is certainly pretty to look at and has the Samsung look that cannot be mistaken.
Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus Audio
This is one of the last Samsung phones to feature the headphone jack on the bottom, as they are moving away to wireless technology like many other markets leaders. However, you can use your wired headphones here, and the sound quality is good.
Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus Camera
The dual camera on the Samsung Galaxy A8 is usually on the front, with a single 16MP camera on the rear. The front has a 16MP and 8MP arrangement.
Samsung Galaxy A8 Features & Performance
In terms of battery, the Samsung Galaxy A8 has a 3000mAh which is good for a phone of this spec, which means if you hammer it all day the battery will go flat but if you have a normal usage day that battery will be fine at bedtime. It supports fast charging, but it is not wireless. A full charge from flat takes less than 2 hours.
Surprisingly the Samsung Galaxy A8 only runs Android 7, not the expected 8 and features an Exynos 7885 octa-core chipset with 4GB of RAM. There is 32GB of built-in storage, but as expected from Samsung you get the microSD slot for expansion.
If you are a Samsung fan but not ready to part with the money needed for the Samsung Galaxy S9 then you might well find the Samsung Galaxy A8 is the perfect mid-range smartphone for you, and knowing it has Samsung magic makes it pretty reliable.
