Samsung Galaxy A8 Price & Specification

Samsung is famous in the manufacturing of Smartphones and now the company concentrates the handsets with metal frame. In early 2015 the Galaxy A series was added in the company profile. The A series are the mid-range devices comes with a slim body and an elegant metal frame. The Galaxy A series contained 3 mobile phones, Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A8. The Galaxy A8 is the largest in series. Here we are going to see what this metal warrior is offering to the users.

Design and Display

The design is the main attraction in A series. The mobile phone is well built and impressively thin. It measures only 5.9mm in thickness and has a strong metal unibody. This is the thinnest device in Samsung profile and carries only 151 grams of weight. Its thin bezel made the one hand use easily. The manageable bezels made the device slim even with the iPhone 6 Plus.

The Galaxy A8 comes with 5.7 inches Super AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 full HD pixels resolution. The big screen is not only bright it also has the good outdoor visibility. The sharp colors enhance the reality of images and allow the users to enjoy the video in natural colors.

OS, Processor, and Memory

The device runs Android Lollipop version with Samsung’s own Touch Wiz user interface. The OS is smooth, but the user interface is packed with unnecessary features which give the messy look to the users. The device is featured with 1.5 GHz Octa Core processor paired with 64 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset and Adreno 405 GPU. The handset serves with 2 GB RAM and 32 GB internal memory which can be increased further up to 128 GB via microSD card. With this configuration user not to worry about the performance and low storage capacity and they can easily save their complete data inside the device.

Fingerprint Scanner

The placement of fingerprint scanner is just ideal. The scanner is attached with the home button and function like Galaxy S6 which allow the users to unlock the handset in simple and quickest way. Users are able to store more than 3 fingerprints impression at once.

Camera

The device has sufficient pairs of a camera. It has 16 MP rear snapper with the f/1.9 aperture which is similar with Galaxy S6. The camera sensor used ISOCELL technology but, unfortunately, the optical image stabilization is the lack in this handset. The front facing shooter is based upon 5 MP with wide angle lens that allow the users to capture decent selfies.

Battery

The Galaxy A8 is energized with Non-removable Li-Ion 3050 mAh battery which is enough for whole day usage. It gives 51 hours back up on music play, 17 hours talk time on 3G. The handset requires 144 hours to be charged fully.

Pros and Cons

Elegant metal design, sufficient camera, thin body and fingerprint scanner are the good points in Galaxy A8. On the other hand, weak speakers and the bit over pricing are the weak aspects in the metal clad Smartphone.

মুল্য, configuration, speciflcation, 3G 4G wifi LTE একেকটা একেক জায়গায় একেক রকম হয় কেন? J5, j7 ও আরো অনেক device বিদেশে 4G LTE পাওয়া যায়। কিন্তু বাংলাদেশে শুধু 3G পাওয়া যায় কেন? সব মডেলের sm-j?00f model টা পাওয়া যায় না। দামের ও হেরফের হয় কেন? এইসব খুব ই বিরক্তি কর-আত্ম বিশ্বাস বিনষ্টকারি। a8 sm-a800f price koto?
