    Soumya Guha Roy

    I have been using the device since last 3 days. Here is my review

    1. Excellent display
    2. Fast focus and fast capture camera
    3. Nice UI
    4. Decent battery backup (after 24 hours, battery remains ~30% with medium
    5. Good performance.
    6. Unread notification count is spot on, like we have in iOS.
    7. The metallic design is superb, and feels premium. Go for the gold one, than the
    white. The white one looks plastic from back side.
    8. Fingerprint sensor works 100% perfect.

    1. second SIM slot is a hybrid slot. You can’t use a microSD and 2nd SIM at once.
    2. In 32 grands, you may expect 3Gigs of RAM, where it features 2GB.
    3. Yes it warms up a bit during charging, and during gameplay, but very minimal.

    Altogether its a perfect combination of beauty and beast.

    I am giving 4 stars. one star deducted for a day late delivery by flipkart, even when next-day-guaranteed delivery was opted for.

    Well, nothing more to add than what other have already mentioned, I will try to put my opinion on the same line. This was an upgrade to my Note 2, and didn’t have the budget to go for a Note 5 🙁

    Could have been better
    ~ 2GB RAM, could have been a 3!

    The bests
    ~ The slimmest Samsung phone till date!!!!!!! Yes, its a fact
    ~ Excellent display and large resolution
    ~ Metal finishing to give a premium look
    ~ Classy edges on the sides to give another premium look
    ~ Good battery; I am a heavy user and the phone survives about 30-32 hours with full day 3g coverage and heavy browsing
    ~ Fingerprint scanner is flawless (tip: scan both thumbs—its a big phone and you never know when you will have to use on one hand alone)

    OVERALL: If you can afford 30k and looking for some great performance, battery, display size, and metal body… GO FOR IT! Personally I am 100% happy with the product.

    friends, there are TWO variants of samsung A8.

    1)Snapdragon 615 chipset variant with Adreno 405 GPU
    Octa 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 MPcore Harvard Superscalar core (max. 1.7 GHz quad-core cluster + max. 1 GHz quad-core cluster)

    2)Exynos 5430 variant with 600 MHz ARM Mali-T628 GPU
    Quad 1.8 GHz + Quad 1.3 GHz (max) ARM Cortex-A7 Harvard Superscalar processor cores (512 Kbyte L2 cache)

    the variant available in flipkart is variant 2. Obviously variant 1 is better than variant 2 because of the processor and GPU.., but both variants are almost equal in performance.

    so before buying this phone check whether variant 1 is available in india. if not then buy this variant. I hope this was helpful. thank you!!! like it!!! 🙂

    i bought this stunning metal body slim phone before 15 days ,and i m really happy to use it ,this cell having 32 gb internal memory due to this not i used my memory card . its hybrid sim phone but no problem because u have more internal capacity . Samsung Galaxy A8 is a awesome device again from Samsung. A8 could have had Dual SIM along with SD card (u can used here one SIM and one SD card either /or 2 Sims). 5.7 HD Display is good. Battery life is superb. Speaker Volume best ,i used both nano sims not micro sd card…..battery is very very powerfuI and i was impressed with battery life nd fast charging……. i recommanded this phoine for u guys….all galaxy apps r very useful.its slim and stylish looks attracts everyone. go with samsung 8 for happy buying …its gold variant is rare to buy.

    I did not purchase from Flipkart .Because the price was 32500 in flipkart when i was looking .So purchased from local shop for 30000 and got 5% cash back on this .it was good deal for me along with one power bank free .

    I had very bad thoughts about Samsung ,as i had issue on my Samsung galaxy s4 .and do not like Samsung Touchwiz UI which is heavy and will reduce the performance .
    S4 had over heating as well .So i thought taking some other brand .however when i saw the phone in the show room .i got impressed much ,as it uses similar UI in galaxy S6 and this time samsung has made some changes .

    Here is my review why i bought this phone

    Pros :

    1. it has 5.7 inch Super amoled display with Gorila glass 4 protection

    (only asus zenfone selfi and delux has this Gorila glass 4 protection in the market )

    you can google it about Gorila glass 4 protection .

    2.It has 387 PPI .which shows text clear and sharp while reading

    (there are many phone available in the market more then 400 PPI .However since it is a big screen 5.7 text looks so good even little less PPI .Iphone 6 has only 326PPI)

    3.Phone has 2 GB ram .Many people think why not 3GB ?
    but samesung has given DDR 4 ram which has more speed then DDR 3 ram .
    Many brands in the market they give 3GB bur those all DDR3
    This DDR4 Ram is more power efficient .

    4.Phone has quick charge 1.0 .which can charge the phone 0 to 100% in 90 minutes .
    Phone comes with 5v – 2A adapter

    5.It has 3050mah battery and battery life is excellent .i am normal user and it gives me 1.5 days .for heavy usage it should give 1 complete day .
    6 .It is 5.9mm thin and this is thinner than Iphone 6+

    with metallic finish .looks great in the hand .

    7.coming to the performance now

    i have used this phone more than a month

    Usually samsung phone gets slow down after few month .and this phone i have not faced any such issue .The phone woks fast and multitask is smooth .
    Exynos 5 Octa 5430 processor handles task well

    8.Samsung phone always gets over heated .But Galaxy a8 is not in the case .

    The phone is always cool .You may get little warm when we charge the phone .that is because of quick charging .

    However that didn’t cross 36 C .Even when we play heavy game it goes only 39 c not beyond that .This is really good .

    There are many phones in the market gets heat and even it goes beyond 45 c saw the reviews in the youtube.

    9.This phone comes with 32 GB built in storage but usable storage you will get only 25GB approx .

    10 .It comes with 16 mega pixel camera .Day light photos are excellent and good color reproduction

    low light condition Photos are also good .But i can not say excellent because it has only one LED flash not the dual tone LED flash .

    front camera 5 mega pixel which can take excellent photos .

    11. The phone has dual sim option both are nano sim .

    12. This phone has One of the best finger print which is similar to Apple touch id .

    Cons :

    1. The phone has one cons .that is Hybrid sim slot .Which means you can not use sd card when you use second sim card slot .

    if you want to use sd card then you have to remove your second sim …so you can use either second sim or sd card …

    Verdict :

    Overall i am very much happy .day to day tasks performs well …

    comparing the price there may phones available in the market ASUS and one plus 2 etc …

    However asus can not match with Galaxy A8 built quality and also receiving OS updates

    One plus 2 wait time is more and that has cheap plastic quality only 13 mega pixel camera .even one plus 2 has 4Gb RAM that is ddr3 not like galaxy A8 DDR4 Ram

  10. Rated 5 out of 5
