The Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus 2018 runs the latest Android v8.0 (Oreo), which is present only in some of the latest flagship smartphones from various manufacturers. The latest version of Android ensures you get a smarter, faster and more intelligent interface to use, which take your smartphone experience to the next level.
The Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus 2018 is among the fewest smartphones to be certified as IP68. The certification clearly indicates that the smartphone has been built such, that it can even survive a drop in water for up to 1.5 feet deep and can remain safe for around 30 minutes. Moreover, this ensures the device to be dustproof as well.
The presence of AMOLED display is certainly a plus point of the device, as it consumes less battery to provide you with a brighter interface compared to the conventional LCD display.
The smartphone from Samsung is a treat to own for its powerful performance. It is powered by a 1.9 GHz octa-core processor seated upon the Samsung Exynos 7 Octa 7880 chipset. Further, the performance is boosted by the presence of a 4GB RAM to deliver some excellent multitasking results.
With so many smartphones equipped with the high pixel cameras at both ends, Samsung has concentrated seriously on the optics front this time. As a result, it has come up with a 16MP primary camera along with a dual secondary camera setup of 16MP+16MP resolutions at the front end.
Good battery backup
The smartphone is efficiently backed by a 3,500mAh Li-ion battery, which promises to deliver uninterrupted usage for hours. Moreover, the battery is user replaceable which allows it to be replaced with ease if any damage happens.
Lacks quick charging feature
Quick charging feature has been on trend in the recent time. Almost every other smartphone gets this essential feature, as it not only charges the battery in a lightning quick speed but also increases the battery life by 80 percent. However, the Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus 2018 misses out on this special feature which cannot be really termed as its drawback. But considering the huge competition around, this could be a vital feature to miss out on.
