Design

Last year’s Galaxy Alpha was the first truly beautiful smartphone by Samsung, and the Galaxy A series has kept the momentum going since. Galaxy A8 is no exception, in fact it is among the best looking smartphones made by the company.The smartphone balances the Samsung design language of 2012/2013 with the new look that the company is experimenting with this year. The body uses matte-finish plastic on the back, while the frame on the sides is metal. The metallic edges on the left and right are slightly bevelled, instead of the flat sides you usually see. Samsung has machined the Power and Volume buttons off metal too.Plastic is, of course, not the most desirable material of construction in the smartphone industry, but the plastic used here is of good quality. Overall, the plastic-and-metal design works well for the Samsung Galaxy A8.Below the display panel is Samsung Galaxy A8’s fingerprint sensor, which is integrated into the hardware Home button.

Flanking this physical key on both sides are the Task Switcher and Back soft-touch keys. You will find the 5MP camera, the speaker grille and the usual array of sensors above the display panel.On the back are the 16MP camera, LED flash and the loudspeaker, which are arranged horizontally, a design choice we have seen in few Samsung phones since Galaxy S3. You get the usual branding on the back as well as the front of the smartphone. The left edge holds the housing for the sim card/microSD card slots.Samsung Galaxy A8 holds the distinction of being the company’s thinnest smartphone yet at 5.9mm; the handset weighs 151 grams. These make Galaxy A8 among the thinnest lightest and phablets you can find in the market right now, and a far cry from the company’s mammoth Mega phablets.In fact, Samsung Galaxy A8’s design and dimensions betray the fact that it has a 5.7-inch screen. In fact, the smartphone is small enough to operate with one hand for most people.

Display

Samsung Galaxy A8 has a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with Full HD (1080x1920p) resolution, which may seem a little pale compared to the QHD (1440x2560p) resolution. However, we found Galaxy A8 to have among the best displays we have seen in the market recently.

The Super AMOLED screen ensures that the contrast levels are great, though colours may seem a tad oversaturated.The Samsung Galaxy A8 display panel is among the brightest we have seen, which is remarkable considering its price bracket. Even under direct sunlight you get excellent clarity – at just 50% brightness.

Camera

Samsung Galaxy A8 has a 16MP rear camera that captures a lot of details and delivers images with accurate colour reproduction and white balance. However, we noticed that the images did not come out as sharp as we have seen in the Galaxy S6’s 16MP camera.The camera has four key shooting modes: Auto, Pro, HDR and Night. You will be hard pressed to find the difference between the quality of images delivered by Auto and Pro modes.
