Very good upper mid-ranger

Westafricanigga has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I got mine in the middle east for about $570. It has a premium feel and has no issues from the previous year galaxy series carried over. Over the past 3 weeks, Its been performing great except for one issue it had once where I was writing up a document in Microsoft word and the screen went black and unresponsive. I held the power and volume down button for 10 secs to reset and everything came back fine.. Didn't even lose my progress..

The rear camera isn't the best in low light but I only make that observation because of how excellent the front camera is.. In the lowest light it comes up with super bright image although a bit noisy..

Speaker is good and loud but easy to mute if covered.

Handles heavy use adequately.

Multiwindow us my new best friend because of the elongated screen.. Watching video on it is good too.

Call quality is good.

Battery is OK to last 10 hours of heavy use. And will definitely last you 20-24hours of you take the Time to switch to maximum power saving mode when you will not be using the phone for any non-skeletal function.

If you aren't interested in curved screens and superflagship specs, this will do nicely.

It's not the most exciting phone in the world.. But then again, it isn't meant to be.. It's for level headed people who want the maximum quality without the frills. And that's exactly what it brings to the table

Mid range phone with flagship performance

meconio has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

Come on what are talking about. He says it is a mid-range phone however he compares it whit a one plus and LG g6. The contras are pure superficial things.

And by the way I bougth this (feb´18 early) for 300 USD here in Chile

I have A8+ only for more screen size, and it works very well.
None of the phones that the poster comments have all things in only one device, to know:
Water resistant (not in one plus or honor view10)
Dual Sim (in LG expensive version)
Memory expansion (dedicated): (not in oneplus5T)
FM
3.5mm Jack inlet.
gyroscope, barometer, accelerometer, and other sensors

Oreo version is comiing soon it is not big problem!!

To be honest the only "weakness" are his main camera and photos with low ligth. but the two cams in front are great. And obviously it doest have the procesor like S8, otherwise this phone will be S9. But still works great for a regular (non proffesional) user.

this phones deserves a 8 rating at least.
