Samsung Galaxy A8 Features

The Samsung Galaxy A8 is to the Galaxy S6, the way the Sony Xperia M5 Dual is to the Xperia Z5. What we mean is, after launching their flagship phone, phone makers time and again have released their slightly watered-down variants at an attractive price point.

The Galaxy A8 has 1920 x 1080 pixels spread across its big 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display. It’s made to look like the Galaxy S6 due to the use of metal bezels, but the back isn’t glass. It’s powered by a Exynos 5430 octa-core chip, which isn’t as high end as the Exynos 7420 on the S6. It also comes with a modest 2GB of RAM. Fortunately, it retains that useful fingerprint scanner on the home button. It also retains the 32GB of internal memory, which should be ample for many of us. There are ways where the Galaxy A8 trumps the Galaxy S6 also — it is a Dual SIM phone, where you can either use two SIMs at once or use a microSD card in one of the slots. The battery is also sufficiently large, measuring 3050mAh (which considering the modest specifications should offer a reasonable up time).

There’s a 16MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing one. Like most phones launched this year, the Samsung Galaxy A8 too supports 4G bands that Indian telecoms are building their infrastructure on and also supports VoLTE.

A perfect smartphone right on the money. I am using this product since last one year. Though it has 2GB Of RAM, it performs well. Fingerprint security works pretty well. Camera is really good in clicking sharp imaged. It has perfect metal finish right at the end. It has 3050 mAh battery, which runs 1 & half day easily. Gaming performance is so fast for 1.8 GHz Samsung Exynos Processor. Sound quality while noise cancellation works really well. 5.7 inch FHD display gives better view.

  • Well-built design
  • Good Camera quality
  • Good Battery life
  • Fingerprint Scanner
  • MicroSD card slot (Hybrid Dual Sim)
The Bad
  • RAM
