Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just too good! I am really happy with this phone and have had no problems with it in the last 5 months. It does what I need it to do perfectly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good features but mine lasted only 3 months I got this with an Optus plan in Australia. I liked: the mid-size, the low weight, the display (amazingly good), the amount of memory (32GB). I disliked: the slippery case (it WILL fall out of your pocket and you WILL drop it), the open USB port (grit and lint WILL get in there. Mine fell apart mechanically after 3 months - not replaced under warranty) and the totally inadequate warranty (if you only expect the phone to last 3 months the warranty is ok. For everyone else it's not good.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love this phone... but Fragile Got this phone in October 2018. Love the Size, Feel, Features, Speed, Screen and Style of this phone. I had the S5 before this which was getting a bit slow. Couldn't justify the price tag of the S9 so went for the A8 and wasn't disappointed, Until... The Phone came with a clear case which offered little protection but I thought it would suffice until I managed to get something more secure (Otterbox). The phone Specification stated a good strong Gorilla Glass screen which I thought would offer some degree of safety, I was wrong. My phone fell from my leg pocket onto concrete as I opened my car door and attempt to get out. The phone fell about 30cm and impacted onto the edge of the screen, not face down, just the edge contacted first and the screen completely shattered. The phone still worked ok so I obtained a quote from Samsung for repair .. $260 (almost half the cost of the phone !) .. My new Otterbox case was waiting for collection from the Post office when the screen broke.. Typical ! I have the phone back now, after repair, and it's working as good as new. lovely phone but needs a lot of protection... don't believe the hype about the Gorilla glass screen !

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fagile and design too fail I bought it a month ago and I had concerns that it would take a drop. It came with a cover so great because there aren't any cover to be found locally. Fooled in to a false sense of security until it slipped out of my pocket and cracked... Annoyed that it crack with such a small impact I blaming my self and phone still working, thought it could just deal with.. but now 2 weeks later due the damage the crack continue to develop and now the phone is usable and required repair. I believe it is designed to do this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's got everything I need I,received the phone three weeks ago. And I'm very happy with the Samsung Galaxy A8.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery life is poor I bought this phone less than a week ago and to say I am disappointed is an understatement. The phone requires charging at least once a day and I am not a heavy user. My previous 3 Samsungs were top notch and that's why I chose to purchase another one. Does not live up to the hype, last time I purchase a Samsung.
