COULD HAVE BEEN THE PERFECT SAMSUNG PHONE
SuperAndroid17 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
What makes this phone amazing is the looks, very slim, and the body to screen ratio is great. The Sd card reader is what i truly love about this phone and something that i hope samsung brings back. It takes decent pictures as long as you are not moving. Phone is very fluid and fast. Now the cons, the rear facing speaker on the back is VERY weak, no led notification light which are cheap to make, and the phone signal drops a lot when traveling , i guess that is from it being a international phone. These are little personal gripes but to me if this phone didn't have those cons i mentioned it would be what the samsung galaxy s6 should have been.

I bought it before 2 weeks ... and im willing to sell it now
It always stoppes when i open big app or open big Facebook page includes many videos.
It is less than i expected.
I advice all users to buy htc or iPhone.

Samsung galaxy A8 design is more attractive and nice. Galaxy A8 rear camera is fantastic and gives you a perfect picture. This phone attracts people from almost all the age groups because operability is very easy and battery life is last long.

I have A8 duos exynos version(SM-A800F)
Both design and build quality are good but plastic back reduces some points from overall asthetics and so build quality score is 8.
Camera is good in most occasions but no OIS means you can get blurry pics sometimes.
UI can get sluggish sometimes(you won't get flagship grade smoothness) but most people can live with this.
Display is good in terms of both sharpness and color production. It's 5.7 inch sAMOLED screen is a joy to watch.
Battery life is the department it excels most. You can consistantly get upwards of 6:30 hour screen on time up to astonishing 9:30 hour SOT. It will last at least a day no matter how you use it.
Fingerprint sensor is easy to use, fast and accurate. It will correctly reads your fingerprint 9 out of 10 occasions at least(If you register your fingerprint properly).
Bottom line-a good all-around upper midranger but a bit overpriced.
