Briiliant phone for the price . Infact even clearer selfie picture then the I PHONE 6 plus
By Sidharth Rang | 22 Feb 2016
Samsung Galaxy A 8 has made a whole new segment for phones in the 25 g to 30 g range, not only has it set a benchmark with his camera for pictures, but even battery life which refuses to die down easily, the brilliance of the screen of 5.7 inch and the amazing video clarity , which delights one and all and the best feature was comparing selfies taken via the I phone 6 plus to the A8 and A8 kills it . Only feature which phone companies should consider is a front flash for selfies.

A premium superb phone for its cost.
By Yagnesh Sharma | 28 May 2016
I recently purchased my A8 - Gold in a local store as an exchange to my HTC 826. The most striking feature of A8 ofcourse is its design aesthetics. But most importantly the gadget, though stunning in looks, is extremely well built as for as its hardware is concerned. Packed in it, is its expansive 5.7 in Screen but really quite handy. Its Octa core 1.8 Ghz Exynos 5430 processor is at its blazing best. The principal rear camera is superb with very good capture at low lights. The front with wide selfie feature is comparable to I-phone 6. Why not flash for the front camera? -mobile makers should ponder on this. - The phone is as cool as a cucumber while performing - the one main reason why I discarded my earlier HTC. Even with long exposure to video capture it is only tolerably heated. The video capture (FHD)itself is excellent. The 2 GB RAM though could have been upgraded to 3 GB. Well for all other features like OTG support etc.. you name it, it has it. The sounds are little low though clear.But then is it asking for too much for its cost? (Street price Rs 26,000). Overall a critical assessment is that the phone is really very good and honest recommendation is - go for it....

Bad Camera
By Yogeshwar Patil | 19 Sep 2015
Only Drawback is , Camera is not up to mark in this price range. Has Back Camera 16MP, But works as 8 Megapixel Camera.Front Camera is Good. Even Having 1.9/f Aperture, Low light images are noisy. Improve Camera Functions.
