The Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus flaunts a 6inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels and a pixel density of 441ppi. The device offers a screen-to-body ratio of 75.82 % and an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. The device weighs about 191 grams which feels comfortable in hands. Besides that, the phone is IP68 certified by assured water resistance.

For storage purposes, the phone features 64GB internal memory along with the option of memory expansion up to 256GB via a memory card. The phone is powered by the Samsung Exynos 7 Octa 7885 Chipset with eight cores built on the 16bit architecture. Whereas, the Mali-G71 handles the Graphical Department.

The Gizmo runs on the Android v7.1.1 (Nougat), facilitated by the dual sim support (Nano + Nano). The call quality was superb, and even the microphones worked good enough.

A primary camera of 16MP controls the Camera sector at the rear and an 8MP camera on the front for taking mesmerizing selfies. The camera gives some fantastic snapshots in normal and portrait mode. The camera also accompanies an LED flash for well-lit photos during the night (or low light). Overall camera performance is outstanding with numerous colors and sharp & crisp picture quality. Whereas, Video recording can be done at 1920×1080 @ 30 fps maximum.

The video output is decent enough with effectively higher video stabilization. Although there is no 4K recording option, the default camera setup performs fair enough at 1080p and shoots natural-looking videos.

The Galaxy A8 Plus has a 3500mAh non – removable battery that is capable enough to run the device for the whole day. It facilitates with a type-c charger and the type-c charging port. Its charging speed is awe-inspiring as it charges the phone’s battery from 0% to 100% in less than 2 hours but does not support wireless charging.

Additional Features:

The phone comes with a fingerprint scanner on the rear side just below the camera, and our all-time favorite “a 3.5mm Audio Jack”. Furthermore, various sensors such as Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Compass, Proximity sensor, Light sensor, Barometer are also provided in the gadget. For the connectivity purpose, Wi-Fi 802.11, a/ac/b/g/n/n 5GHz, Wi-Fi Direct, USB tethering, and a Bluetooth v5.0 is present in the machine.

Verdict

The Galaxy A8 Plus is a superb device in various aspects but lacks the latest trendy smartphones. The phone is offered for Rs 16,800, which feels a bit expensive for the particular device. First of all, it has a huge chin and forehead along with wide bezels which makes it look quite outdated in this full-screen generation of phones.

Secondly, devices with much better processors are available in the market at even lower prices. Apart from that, the device has a beautiful set of cameras, proper RAM management, and a super vibrant display; but in our opinion, its a bit overcharged and does not justifies its price in the other technical segments.
