Samsung Galaxy A8 Review- Design, Camera, Hardware, Software, Battery & Specs:- Samsung Galaxy A8 is the topmost Smartphone of A series phones from the company. It doesn’t have any predecessor other than A5 released in the year 2017. This Smartphone is considering to be the glimpse of Galaxy S9. Also, it has some of the specs similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 but you will get it in your budget. We can say that this Smartphone is launched to provide the features of S8 at a reasonable price for the users. It is IP68 rated to provide water and dust resistance. This 172 gm device comes with easy gripping. But it is much heavier than Galaxy S8 and slightly bigger in size too. The structure of A8 is made of glass and matte finished aluminum metal of 7000 series. The buttons are easy to press and made with metal.
This Smartphone comes with the best features. One of them is water resistance as it can survive for about 30 minutes in 5 feet deep water. So your device will be protected if it has accidental drop into the water. Another feature of this cool phone is infinity display which means a taller display with 18:5:9 aspect ratio and edge to edge baseless design. It comes with 5.6 inch super AMOLED display that looks cool with no curves at the edges and gives the flat design with much bigger bezels.
Galaxy A8 is launched with Android 7 Nougat which is really disappointing. We were expecting the latest android version in this Smartphone like 2017 released devices had in them. Other features like KNOX security, split screen multitasking and secure folder are also part of the device. The fingerprint scanner on the back of the device with other amazing features shows its similarity with Galaxy S8.
The size of this Smartphone is smaller than others devices manufactured by the company. It comes with dimensions of 149.2 x 70.6 x 8.4mm. It is built with front and back glass having metal frame for protection. Moreover the glass is not slippery like other Phones and you will have a strong grip ver. your device. But still it needs case for security from drops due to delicate glass plated body from front and back.
In terms of camera quality, Galaxy A8 is not similar to S8. This Smartphone do not have any dual rear camera instead it features dual front camera. The rear camera is 16 megapixels with Optical stabilization whereas the front cameras of 8 Megapixel and 16 Megapixel gives DSLR like portrait effect in the pictures. It will be a cool device for the selfie lovers.
This Smartphone consist of Snapdragon 7885 chip that is built on modern 14nm LPP FinFET manufacturing process which reduces the power consumption. Thus, it gives you a long lasting battery life for the whole day. It has 4GB RAM and32/64 GB internal memory storage with MicroSD card slot for expanding memory. The internal storage is very less but at the cost of A8, you can get only this space for storage.
Samsung introduces Samsung Experience User Interface in its every Smartphone. Galaxy A8 also has this interface too that looks nice but in terms of functionality, it is not worthy. However the software installed in the Smartphone performs better and speedily than the ones available in Samsung S8. We can say that Samsung is improving in this section but still needs to work hard for getting the level of Pixel device.
The 3000mAh battery is installed in the latest Samsung Galaxy A8 with similarity to that of S8. But the performance of its battery is far better than S8. Now turning to the charging speed, Galaxy A8 again beats other devices of Samsung. You charge 37% battery in just half an hour and it will take 1 hour and minutes to fully charge the battery. This device doesn’t support wireless charging.
