Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I was kind of scared to buy this phone with everyone freaking out over the speaker glitch and "poor camera quality" but once I bought it and used it for a week now. It's screen is beautiful especially when watching videos and playing games. Calls are clear and without any fuzz, social media works quickly and without any delay. I haven't experienced a single speaker glitch yet (I might have bought a model that wasn't faulty, luck?) either and I am happy with the camera, although it can be over exposed, doesn't come with OS for the front cameras, and I find the front flash to be too bright sometimes. Other than that minor struggle with the camera's, I think this is a GREAT phone for the price point, design and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great phone and has great features! I have this phone since a little while now and I believe it is amazing in quality. However, the audio seems to cut while the phone is charging and the speaker is (according to my brain when I switched from iPhone 6 to Samsung Galaxy A8) in a rather odd position: top right corner parallel to the volume up button.
