Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A8 2018

66% Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) Review
Source: Phone World English EN→zh-CN
Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) is the latest device by Samsung of 2018 and personally, I haven’t found any extraordinary changing in it rather than a better camera. The price range is very high and people would go easily to other companies because they are giving the same specs device in the half price of Samsung A8.

Samsung Galaxy A8 review: You’re paying for more than what’s “on paper”

Then, of course there’s the most important thing for any smartphone: Its price. Is the Samsung Galaxy A8 ultimately worth your money?

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) & A8+ (2018) review - A set of good premium Samsung selfie smartphones
Source: Tech Nave English EN→zh-CN
Personally, I think the Galaxy A8 (2018) is worth getting but not so much for the plus variant. As mentioned earlier, the only reason that you want that is because you like it big and money is not an issue. So if that's your stuff, by all means, go for it.

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) Hands-on: A Galaxy S8 Mini in all but name
Source: Trusted Reviews English EN→zh-CN
Considering Samsung wouldn’t reveal how much the A8 will cost when it hits UK and US shores in the next few months, it’s hard to judge how good it’s going to be. I’d hazard a guess at somewhere between £399-£499, which puts it right in the firing line of the OnePlus 5T, some great devices from Honor, and even a reduced-price S8, if you’re lucky.

Samsung Galaxy A8 review: Hands-on
Source: PC Advisor English EN→zh-CN
The Galaxy A8 is by far the best A-range device to date and effectively the Galaxy S8 mini we always wanted. Samsung has brought the flagship design into a cheaper phone while keeping key features such as the Infinity Display and waterproofing. It's an attractive offering, but there are some amazing phones available at lower prices such as the OnePlus 5T. Check back for a full review soon.

Finally, when it comes to software, the Galaxy A8 (2018) might lack Oreo at launch, but it packs all the tricks the S8 series had in the bag, and then some.

Samsung Galaxy A8 initial review: The S8 experience for much less
Source: Pocket Lint English EN→zh-CN
It's hard to recommend someone goes to buy a Galaxy S8 after looking at this phone. For a handset that will be significantly cheaper than a flagship, many would be hard pressed to tell the difference.

Whether it can undercut the OnePlus 5T and Honor View 10 will determine whether the A8 is a true bargain or not. Hopefully Samsung gets the price right when it goes on sale in the UK in the next couple of months.

Watch: Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+ Review
Source: Yugatech English EN→zh-CN
Samsung introduced the Galaxy A8 in 2015 . A year later, it released its successor called the Galaxy A8 (2016). The company, however, skipped 2017 and decided to release the 2018 model instead. Here’s a closer look on the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018).

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) Review
Source: Yugatech English EN→zh-CN
With the Galaxy A8 (2018), Samsung has successfully brought the design and features normally found in their premium offerings to the upper mid-range category. If we’re going to place it somewhere, it’s between mid-range and flagship. It has nice Infinity Display, good performance and cameras, water and dust-resistant body, and long battery life. At Php26,990, it’s more expensive than most mid-range devices, but if you can afford its asking price, you won’t be disappointed.

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) Review: Trickling Down Flagship Features
Source: Lowyat.net English EN→zh-CN
The Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) is quite easily the Korean company’s most impressive mid-range smartphone yet. Not only does it look sleek, its overall feature set – especially its camera performance – is well above what you’d expect from a mid-range smartphone.

Other than that, other features worth mentioning that it sports an IP68 water and dust resistant grade, Samsung Pay (MST + NFC), a digital video stabilizer and Bixby assist (no dedicated Bixby button, though). There is also a Galaxy A8+ (2018) variant but it's not in Malaysia yet (we swear!), so we will be doing a hands-on video and a future review of the Galaxy A8 (2018) in the near future, so do stay tuned for that at TechNave.com!

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English EN→zh-CN
We'll try not to make a huge deal out of it, but we can't overlook it either - Samsung's discovered the right spot for a fingerprint reader on the back of a phone. The high off-center placement on the Galaxy S8 and Note8 this year has been universally hated and we're glad that with the A8 (2018) Samsung's starting the year on the right track. Perhaps the S9 will follow suit.

Samsung's new phones to feature dual selfie cameras
Source: CNet English EN→zh-CN
Samsung said the phones will be available in early January, though it's not clear exactly where they'll be available or how much they'll cost. The A7 and A7 Plus, released earlier this year, aren't sold officially through Samsung in the US, but the A7 can be purchased on Amazon for around $350 (AU$510 on Kogan in Australia or £355 on Amazon UK).
