Samsung Galaxy A8 Review (SM-A8000)
Samsung galaxy A8 was indeed, one of the most successful handset and also the most advance mobile phone in the market. Samsung was losing ground in the mid-reach segment of the cell phone market and the An arrangement was a greatly required lineup for the organization. Samsung made a stage in the right bearing with the Galaxy An arrangement, which offered mid-range cell phones with premium form quality and configuration.
The Galaxy A8 isn’t an exemption and it shouts premium as far as outline and additionally particulars. It is the biggest gadget in the Galaxy A lineup because of its expansive showcase. With the Galaxy A8, Samsung has a champ in its grasp, despite the fact that the cost could have been lower.

Samsung Galaxy A8 Design
As we specified prior, the Galaxy A8 is one humongous gadget. Not just is it the greatest when contrasted with all other An arrangement cell phones, it is greater than even the Galaxy Note 4. Be that as it may, it is an all-around created bit of equipment with an excellent outline. At the front, you won’t see a solitary reference to the An arrangement. On the back, on the other hand, the likenesses are clear and you can see the similarity, with the same matte completion to it and the same amplifier, camera and LED streak arrangement.
The front has the conventional Samsung appearance that we have come to know. A major 5.7-inch Super AMOLED presentation with truly contract bezel; this telephone has the most slender bezel of all Samsung cell phones that have ever existed, however an inconvenience here is that my huge hand would once in a while press the screen and start a touch activity amid one-gave utilization.
The telephone’s front houses the home catch, 5-megapixel selfie camera, a nearness sensor and a light sensor. There is no notice LED here, and why it is truant is outside my ability to grasp. A notice LED costs under 10 pennies and would have improved the experience such a great amount of, particularly at this cost.
The right side houses the volume catches and the left houses material volume rockers that are partitioned rather than appended together. Underneath the volume rockers we discover two SIM plate, one of which bends over as a microSD opening. It’s a Hybrid space, which implies you can either utilize it for an auxiliary SIM or for extending accessible stockpiling. The highest point of the telephone has the optional amplifier for clamor cancelation, and the base games a microUSB port, the essential receiver, and a 3.5 mm earphone jack.
The sides are the best piece of the telephone, with both sides including kind of a bend that bends inwards at the top and base, giving it a shocking look furthermore making it extremely agreeable to hold. The A8 is truly thin and its metal unibody measures just 5.9 mm, yet I never got the inclination that it would break or twist. The matte completion on the back does tend to make the telephone dangerous (yet not as much as you would expect), however the in addition to side is that it forestalls unique mark smircesh.
One drawback of the A8 we looked into is that it had little breaks in the paint on the four recieving wire lines at the top and base, and we would propose you check for these before purchasing the gadget at your nearby store.
All things considered, the Galaxy A8 is to a great degree well manufactured. It feels tough and looks marvelous as a result of the meager bezel and metallic body.
Samsung Latest Galaxy A8 Display:
Samsung is starting to utilize its Super AMOLED showcases for each telephone it conveys to the business sector, and the same is the situation with the Galaxy A8. The A8 has a 5.7-inch Full HD (1920×1080) showcase, with a pixel thickness of 389 ppi. In the realm of Quad HD shows, some may believe that Full HD no more does the employment on a 5.7-inch show, however that is not precisely genuine. I never felt the A8′s screen wasn’t sharp, nor might I be able to ever see singular pixels, and the main time you’ll see the distinction is the point at which you have a Quad HD showcase put next to each other.
The complexity levels are awesome; blacks are truly dark and the survey points are incredible also. Hues pop and are extremely lively in the default show mode (Adaptive Display). On the off chance that they feel excessively dynamic for your taste (I unquestionably had that issue), Samsung has an answer for that and gives you a chance to change to an alternate screen mode, with the Basic mode having the most exact hues. Fundamental mode can appear a bit excessively yellow now and again, yet before long you ought to have the capacity to modify. At last, the screen can get truly splendid, particularly when the telephone recognizes brilliant daylight, so perusing the showcase outside ought to never be an issue.
Camera Quality of Samsung Galaxy A8:
The Galaxy A8 has the same camera UI as the Galaxy S6, which is to say it is anything but difficult to utilize. This telephone accompanies the same “twofold tap home catch to wake camera” easy route, however it’s not as speedy as the Galaxy S6 crew. There’s additionally a Pro mode for taking pictures, yet the alternatives are constrained to presentation, ISO and white parity, significance you don’t get shade rate control and can’t spare pictures in RAW arrangement (the last is, frankly, not precisely an imperative element in any case.)
The camera application itself is some of the time moderate when squeezing the photograph thumbnail or when you need to pull out of the camera application, which can be irritating every now and then. Samsung has upgraded its product a considerable measure this year, yet it’s unmistakable the camera application needs more fill in as we saw these slack issues on the Galaxy J5 also.
With regards to taking pictures, the A8 doesn’t emerge. Case in point, the 16-megapixel back camera is restricted to 4:3 perspective proportion, so you should switch to 12-megapixel in the event that you need to give in a more extensive viewpoint proportion. The pictures themselves are very decent when there is sufficient light, in which case they turn out with an incredible measure of point of interest and next to zero clamor, regardless of the possibility that they are a smidgen too warm for our preferring.
In darker circumstances the telephone makes a respectable showing; the F1.9 opening does have any kind of effect, with pictures turning out with a decent measure of shading and sharpness without an excess of commotion decrease. The low opening doesn’t help in low light, however that is because of the absence of optical picture adjustment and the utilization of a not really top of the line sensor and lenz.

Software of Latest Samsung Galaxy A8 mobile
The Galaxy A8 runs Android 5.1.1 out of the case and it runs the same adaptation of TouchWiz that was presented with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. That is something we like, as the new TouchWiz runs much smoother than the past cycle found on gadgets before the S6. Everything is verging on indistinguishable to the S6 family, with the exception of a couple components are lost, as Direct Call or the wallpaper movement impact. In the event that you need a full summary of the product, you can read our survey of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge.
Support for subjects is welcome here, however we ought to bring up that not all topics from the S6 are accessible for the A8, since topic producers need to transfer topics for different resolutions (HD, Full HD, and Quad HD). However, there are still a couple of good choices accessible; I’ve been utilizing White Mint from the get go as I don’t care for the presence of stock TouchWiz.
As this is a double SIM telephone (there is likewise a solitary SIM rendition), you have a devoted menu called SIM Card director for dealing with your SIM Cards. For instance, you can utilize the cell association on SIM 1 and set the second SIM for the information association, or do it the other path around. Much the same as on the Galaxy J5, both SIM cards are dynamic in the meantime and you can get approaches both, however the call will be sent from one SIM to the next.
Performance of Samsung Galaxy A8
Our audit unit of the A8 is controlled by the Snapdragon 615 processor, which has 8 centers timed at 1.5GHz and 1GHz individually and is combined with the Adreno 405 GPU. There is 2GB of RAM, and our unit had 16GB of inner stockpiling and backing for 128GB microSD cards (a few businesses get 32GB on-board stockpiling.)
Until as of late, Samsung’s mid-extent telephones were tormented with slacks and stammers, yet that is a relic of days gone by. The Galaxy A8 ran easily just about the whole time we utilized it, which was a result of the Snapdragon’s blend 615 CPU and the improved programming. One of the SamMobile colleagues has the Exynos form, and that excessively performed outstandingly in each situation.
In addition, the multitasking issues that were available on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are to some degree diminished on the A8, as it can deal with more applications out of sight before it starts murdering them. Another critical thing is that the unique finger impression sensor lives up to expectations extraordinary, and we really felt that it now and again worked superior to anything even the sensor on the S6. Concerning diversions, the A8 took care of each title with aplomb, however it did get a bit hot after long stretches of play (we tried titles like Ridge Racer Slipstream, Modern Combat 5 and N.O.V.A 3, all of which are top of the line recreations.)

Sound, Call Quality, and Battery Life of Samsung Galaxy A8:
Like the vast majority of Samsung’s cell phones, the A8 has a back confronting speaker. The volume is somewhat frail, and you will discover yourself measuring the telephone’s back a great deal of times. Sound through the earphones is better; solid is very much adjusted however the volume is still not as high as we anticipated. The bass sounds punchy and the treble is decent too. The Sound Alive element is available here, so you can set the sound quality to your loving through different controls and presets.
The Galaxy A8’s call quality is in some cases shallow, yet more often than not the other side could hear me well, and the same was the situation for me. The phone gathering is something to examine, be that as it may; the metal unibody outline implies the gathering wasn’t exactly in the same class as my Galaxy S6 edge. Where I had 4G on my S6 edge, the A8 would frequently be on 3G, and we’re speculating Samsung has utilized a lower-quality radio to save money on expenses.
With respect to battery life, the main word to depict it would be epic. The 3,050 mAh battery on the A8 can keep going super long. For instance, one of our general days saw us cleared out with 18 percent battery following 1 day and 5 hours, with a screen time of more than 5 hours. Notwithstanding, the battery life is better on Wi-Fi and 4G than it is on 3G; the battery drained rather rapidly on 3G, and you will require a consistent cell association with keep the battery from exhausting significantly all the more quickly.
The Galaxy A8 is the best telephone in the An arrangement, however its cost is a little on the high side. The general client experience is awesome, and the telephone left an exceptionally decent impact on us. The A8 never made me ache for the Galaxy S6 edge, which is an extraordinary accomplishment no doubt.
The reason a few merchants still choose Full HD showcases bodes well too in the wake of utilizing the A8, as Full HD isn’t as wonderful as Quad HD yet takes care of business furthermore guarantees great battery perseverance. The new TouchWiz programming with backing for subjects is a highlight, however the missing LED notice is something we don’t sanction of. We would recommend Samsung make it a standard element on each telephone they make, particularly when it costs upwards of $500.
The opposition for Samsung in this value reach is very furious. You will get a great deal of telephones with better specs at the same or lower cost, however gadgets with the same complete and manufacture quality are very elusive. The camera is extraordinary, yet the 4:3 viewpoint proportion is a restriction. The front camera isn’t that awesome, however generally speaking, the Galaxy A8 is one of the best mid-range Samsung cell phones in a long, long time.
