Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus 2018

80% Samsung Galaxy A8+(2018) review: Stunning design, display but can it beat OnePlus 5T?
Source: The Indian Express English
I would say consider the Samsung Galaxy A8+ if you are okay with a six-inch phone and do not wish to try out the other newer Chinese players in the market. For those who want more power, the OnePlus 5T is still an option and remember the Oreo update is already in testing for this. Then there’s Honor View 10, which is a newer entrant to the market and comes with capable features and focus on AI as well and an impressive camera to the boot. If you are looking for a new phone in the Rs 30,000 plus range, the number of options just got bigger with the Galaxy A8+ joining the list.

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) & A8+ (2018) review - A set of good premium Samsung selfie smartphones
Source: Tech Nave English
Personally, I think the Galaxy A8 (2018) is worth getting but not so much for the plus variant. As mentioned earlier, the only reason that you want that is because you like it big and money is not an issue. So if that's your stuff, by all means, go for it.

Finally, the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) are released in Malaysia for a price tag of RM1799 and RM2499 respectively. We got ourselves the plus variant and explored if there's actually any difference between the two. Well, turns out there isn't much except for a bigger display of 6-inch (FHD+), 6GB of RAM, 64GB internal storage and a bigger battery up to 3500mAh. We have already done a video for the Galaxy A8 (2018) right here, and without further ado, check out our Galaxy A8+ (2018) unboxing and hands-on video below.

Samsung introduced the Galaxy A8 in 2015 . A year later, it released its successor called the Galaxy A8 (2016). The company, however, skipped 2017 and decided to release the 2018 model instead. Here’s a closer look on the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018).

Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) Review
Source: Yugatech English
The Galaxy A8+ (2018) is basically the Galaxy A8 (2018) on steroids. It has the same premium build and design, bigger Infinity Display which is good for gaming and watching videos, larger storage, good performance and cameras, water and dust-resistant body, and an even longer battery life. At Php32,990, it’s a pricey phone but it has its own advantages which make it worth considering.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
