amazon Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus reviews
Samsung Galaxy A8 + looks like last year’s S8 + design, but looking more closely, the two machines are different, showing the difference in product segmentation. Specifically, the A8 + features a long, 18.5: 9 screen with two upper / lower edges rather than the body. This sleek, horizontal design, combined with a sloping back makes it easy to handle compared to a 6-inch screen.
Although the same design but the screen of the A8 + has not reached the level “infinity” like the S or Note, because the two edges of the screen thicker and can be seen clearly when holding. The contrast between the screen and the chassis also has a slight difference, the finish is not comparable to the high-end of the Samsung.
No hard home button, fingerprint sensor has been left behind, but the location is reasonable, easier to press than Samsung Galaxy S8 + or Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The rear camera is more balanced, no longer “small” as the Samsung Galaxy A7 2017. The loudspeaker is placed on the right edge near the power button, the same as the previous generation while the space at the bottom is still.
In terms of design, the A8 + is stylish and resembles Samsung’s high-end lineup of the year, but it’s still a bit sluggish in terms of detail and finishing. The new design is a noticeable change, especially after the last two generations of A did not make much difference.
One point to recognize when using the long screen is that it displays more content in a web browser or social network. The navigation buttons are integrated into the screen, but Samsung allows hidden buttons in most applications. This rate is only a bit inconvenient to watch movies, clips on YouTube, because there will be two black bands at the edge of the film or to enlarge to fit the screen.
Using Super AMOLED technology, the Galaxy A8 +’s display is very deep black, able to increase the brightness to a high level for clarity when used outdoors. Colors displayed in the default mode remain in the blazing direction, but may be improved to display more accurately if the basic color mode is selected. Wide viewing angle, but like any other OLED technology, if the background image is white, the screen may look blue or pink.
Always-on Display is a feature that has been equipped from the previous generation. Features help users capture the message as well as basic information without having to open the screen, can increase the battery life. You can adjust the clock face, color, display information … on this screen. Messages from applications can also be opened right away by double-clicking on the notification icon.
The Galaxy A8 + 2018 is the first of its kind in the A line, equipped with a dual camera, but a front camera. The camera doubles have ability delete background for “selfie” image, similar to the Apple iPhone X with the TrueDepth camera system.
Face recognition is very fast when held at a distance of 40 – 50 cm, however in some cases the light is weak, it may take a while, or sometimes not get the face to create effects. Like the portrait mode on the Galaxy Note 8, when the face is received, there will be a notice below to let users know.
The camera’s processing power is quite good, less erased mistakenly on the hair or facial margin. Unlike the iPhone, photos taken from the Galaxy A8 + do not push the focus of the face up too high, and the transition between the face and the font is not harsh should look more natural. Also, you can adjust the background blur in and after shooting, adjusting the beauty of the shot to have a photo best.
The two front cameras of the Galaxy A8 + also have different focal lengths, so when needed you can also switch to wider camera to capture more people. However, portrait mode is only available with narrower camera angles. Besides the effect of erasing the font, Galaxy A8 + also has a sticker effect, beautiful … when taken with the camera before.
The front camera is much improved compared to the previous generation, The quality of the main camera on the A8 + is quite good, not comparable to the high-end Galaxy. The camera is good at light shooting: fast focusing speed, detailed images, blazing colors.
However, in low light conditions, the images from the A8 + are also reduced in detail, slow shutter speeds, so blurring, and noise reduction can not be compared to images from S8 or Note 8.

Performance and software
Previous generations of Galaxy A were equipped with midrange configurations, such as four or eight cores, but they were Cortex A53 power-saving cores. Galaxy A8 + 2018 is different. Processors in the Exynos 7885 SoC have two high-performance Cortex A73 (clocked at 2.18GHz) and six-core Cortex A53 (1.59GHz), which is a big.Little model. High-end machines, of course, with higher performance core less.
The graphics processor on the SoC is the Mali G71MP2 with a maximum speed of 1.3GHz. RAM capacity for the A8 and A8 + is 4GB / 6GB respectively, while the internal memory is 32GB / 64GB. Looking at the specs, the A8 + configuration promises more impressive performance. Perhaps this is also why the two A-series machines support the Virtual Gear VR, which requires more processing power. The Galaxy A8 + is also the first A-Series to be equipped with Bluetooth 5.0.
In fact, the A8 + delivers the speed we expect: fast processors, smoother open applications, faster download speeds and faster image processing applications compared to the Galaxy A7 2017.
However, the Galaxy A8 + does not perform well when playing games. In the heavy games we often use to evaluate: Dead Trigger 2 and Warhammer: 40K, the machine only achieved average frame rate, equivalent to the midrange and not comparable with Nokia 8 or Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. This is also understandable, because the graphics core of the Galaxy A8 + is just a product average (Mali G71 dual core, Galaxy S8 also uses this graphics chip but has up to 20 cores).
This continues to be reflected through performance rating applications. At GeekBench, the CPU performance evaluation application, the Galaxy A8 + results are not inferior to many high end machines, but with AnTuTu (overall performance, including graphics) and GFXBench price of graphics performance) then the A8 + was left quite far.
Using Samsung Experience 8.5 software on Android 7.1.1, the Galaxy A8 + also has a simple, easy interface like the Galaxy Note 8. Features Dual Messenger (allows the use of two Facebook accounts, Skype … same at) and Secure Folders (creating a secure space for files and applications, accessible only with passwords or fingerprints) also offers many options for users.
Another feature inherited from the S8 / Note 8 series is the face unlock. The setup process is very fast, only takes about 2 minutes for you to register your face and turn on the unlock feature. The unlocker is very fast, equivalent to Note 8, and even if not received, you can also open the fingerprint, because the location is convenient.
A8 + has integrated the Samsung Pay payment service, which supports payment at almost every accepted location, so you can be assured of a forgotten wallet at home. At the A8 + next to the PIN, you can authenticate payment with a fingerprint, but the face is not enough security for payment.
Battery life is inherent in the Galaxy A line, thanks to a combination of mid-range processor, AMOLED screen and large battery capacity. On the Galaxy A8 +, the battery capacity is 3500 mAh, only slightly lower than the 3600 mAh battery of the A7 2017.
In fact, the Galaxy A8 + 2018’s battery lasted a day, but a little less than the A7 last year. I usually withdraw the charger in the morning, use the machine to night to plug the charger, the total use time about 16 hours in which the screen brightness from 5-6 hours. The tasks I frequently use are surfing the web, Facebook, playing some games, listening to music … on both WiFi and 4G networks.
According to the AccuBattery battery tracking application, during the off-screen period, the machine was in “deep sleep” mode for about 80% of the time. This is pretty, but with the Galaxy A7 2017 I usually get a bit longer, around 7 am screen. However, if the performance difference between the two machines is comparable, the A8 + 2018’s battery life is still a bit lower.
In the review of the standard battery of BiaReview, the Galaxy A8 + reached a good level but slightly worse than the A7 2017, often outperformed the Nokia 8 or HTC U11.
The Galaxy A since its inception is known for its design and battery life, as well as its advanced line features. With the Galaxy A8 + 2018, Samsung also upgraded in terms of performance and camera, making this phone more attractive than the previous life.
