Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for the price. I bought this amazing Samsung A8 two weeks ago. It paid of my intense research before i bought it, and i am very happy with my choice. It is Fast, slim, decent battery, great specs, Good selfie and front camera. Best phone you would buy for its range i definitely recommend this smartphone. The only defect i noticed was the battery was draining fast with the fast charging mode, but after I have Disabled the fast charging mode And It worked fine as any smart phone in the market. Fast charging kills a battery not only in the long run but also in day to day usability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent! I bought this about two months ago, everything is great! The fingerprint reader at the back is awesome, but it only works about just over half of the time, same with the face ID. The Face ID doesn't really work well, it rarely recognises me. it comes with a case and an earphone which is great. I usually like to fidget with the case, (i Take the case on and off about 2 or 3 times a day) but the bottom of the case broke, so i had to purchase another case. The Wi-Fi connection is very good, same as the bluetooth. The phone looks awsome, i just hope there is a blue one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Swipe to answer issues Great phone, nice size and awesome screen quality. Takes very clear photos and all applications are working well apart from the swipe to answer calls. Missing 2 to 3 calls a day because of this. Would love to know if anyone else is having this issue. Overall great phone and 5 stars if I can get this resolved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from yes it does have great features i baught this phone 3weeks ago and the larger screen size compared to the phone did have is easy on the eyes, the ability to read and transfer files and photos through usb is amasingly good. connecting an external camera is fantastic (with the appropiate app) i now use it for work. i haven’t had a phone like it before and the performance is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from astonishing battery life I got home from work the first day and I still had 70% charge. People have trouble hearing me, I'm either very faint or it cuts out completely. If I move it eventually comes back. Never had this issue with any of my other phones, Any clues? Low light camera is very impressive, slightly heavier than my last phone but I like that it is not as wide, fits in my hand much better.
