The Introduction


The Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) is launched in India. It is the company's latest
entry into the sub-Rs. 35,000 price segment. The smartphone brings a lot of the
features and styling of the flagship Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 to a more
affordable prices. The key Galaxy A8+ (2018) which is features such as the likes of
the Live Focus for the front camera, with the face recognition technology, Bixby voice
assistant. The Samsung's Infinity Display panel. The Galaxy A8+ (2018) has the

will be available starting January 20, exclusively on Amazon.in. There are features
aplenty and the price is competitive enough to make sure the new Samsung
smartphone can give tough competition to the likes of the OnePlus 5T, Nokia 8, and
the recently launched Honor View 10. We spent some time with the Galaxy A8+
(2018) at the launch event and here are our first impressions.

The Features and Specifications with the Price


Starting with its design, the Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018)'s looks are resemblance of
the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 thanks to its proportions with curved glass, glass
back, and the Infinity Display. The device is 8.3mm thick, 75.7mm wide, and
159.9mm tall. It is not very compact, but it is comfortable enough to hold for a device
that sports a 6-inch display. This is the weight of 191g which makes it significantly
heavier than the Galaxy S8 and even the Galaxy S8 Plus.

The Samsung Galaxy A8+ (2018) features a 6.0-inch sAMOLED with the full-HD
screen that has a resolution of 1080x2220 pixels and an 18.5:9 aspect ratio, which
Samsung calls Infinity Display. Much like on the Samsung's current flagship models,
it is looks nice and vibrant with a good brightness levels even in the sunlight. Viewing
angles are decent and the colour reproduction levels is seemed accurate.

The display occupies most of the real estate on the front of the device, which is why
there are on-screen buttons instead of the physical or capacitive keys. Above the
screen is the dual selfie camera setup, which is the first on a Samsung smartphone.
There is one 16-megapixel sensor and one 8-megapixel sensor. We were able to
spend a little time with the phone and we tried out the Live Focus feature which is
seems like a Portrait Mode but is not quite there yet. It could not detect the edges of
the people's faces very well, and the result was a bit underwhelming. The face
recognition technology seems to work fine and it recognised different faces even in
the low light. The rear camera has a 16-megapixel sensor with an f/1.7 aperture lens
which should indicate a good low light performance, but we could not test this in the
limited time as we had with the device.

The back of the device, although made of the glass, it offers a decent grip owing to
the Samsung's curved design. However, it is a fingerprint magnet and we are
concerned about how well this phone can survive being it is dropped. The fingerprint
sensor now has a new location; right below the rear camera sensor. But the
placement is definitely more ergonomic than that on the Galaxy S8 look, the size
could be an issue for the users with stubby fingers.

The Galaxy A8+ (2018) features has a loudspeaker and the power/ lock button on
the right. On the left side, you will find the volume rocker and a tray for one Nano-
SIM. There is a USB Type-C port, a microphone, and a 3.5mm headphone jack on
the bottom. The headphone jack has been retained on the Samsung smartphones,
although many competitors such as Apple and Google have eliminated it from their
latest smartphones. On the top is the secondary microphone, the second SIM slot,
and a microSD card slot.

At the core of the Galaxy A8+ (2018) is the new octa-core Samsung Exynos 7885
SoC, with the two cores clocked at the 2.2GHz and six cores clocked at 1.6GHz. The
Exynos 7885 is the latest mid-range processor from the Samsung and we will get to
test out its performance in the full review. The smartphone also has space of 6GB of
RAM. It features 64GB of the inbuilt storage which is expandable that is microSD
card (up to 256GB).

The custom UI has some unique features and a shortcut such as Hold Palm, which
lets you to take a picture by holding your palm in front of the front camera for a few
seconds. It also has a one-handed mode that seems quite handy, especially for a 6-
inch display device. Additionally, the smartphone has a few Samsung apps like
Samsung Connect, Samsung Health, Samsung Members, and Galaxy Apps. It also
comes with the Microsoft apps such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneDrive, and
LinkedIn.

The Galaxy A8+ (2018) has a 3500mAh battery, and it will evaluate its battery
performance.
