Digit Verdict: Samsung Galaxy A8 Review

By Souvik Das

There are no real glitches, except for the speaker placement. The Samsung Galaxy A8 is well built, comes with a pleasing display, offers good performance, and a competent camera. But the aspect that impressed us the most was how Samsung managed to offer such a slim, large screen phone that manages to ace in the battery life department.  As a standalone product, it is a very recommendable one. However, once you compare it to the OnePlus 2, which offers better performance and good battery life at lower price point, the Samsung Galaxy A8 starts to appear unreasonable at its current price point of Rs. 32,500. Having said that, if you are looking for a large screen smartphone (a 'Phablet', as some may call it), the Samsung Galaxy A8 is an excellent phone, with brilliant built, design and outstanding battery life.
