Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 Price and Features in the Philippines

Samsung A8 - A Premium Phone without the Premium Price

Samsung is well-known all around the world for creating cutting-edge models such as the S series and Note Series. Besides their premium models, the Korean tech giant also appeals to the masses with their mid-range phones such as the Samsung Galaxy A8. First released in 2015, the Samsung A8 has received three iterations including the latest 2018 version. The new Samsung A8 features a 5.6-inch screen, a 16MP camera, 4GB RAM, and 3000mAh of battery, and so much more.

Screen

The first thing that you would notice with this phone is the screen. From the previous versions, Samsung Philippines has made the screen bigger with a ~75.6% screen-to-body ratio. Total screen size measures up to 5.6 inches, giving you a full 1080 x 2220 pixels of display. Playing games or watching movies on the Samsung Galaxy A8 would be an immersive viewing experience.

Camera

Another exciting feature that you should look into the Samsung A8 is the camera. It features a single-lens 16MP sensor complete with LED flash, panorama, and HDR. However, what makes this phone unique is its dual-lens front camera with a 16MP+8MP sensors. This allows you to take selfies on portrait mode or with “depth effect” in excellent clarity!

Internal Components

What’s really interesting about the Samsung Galaxy A8 is its internal components. The unit runs on Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) operating system supported by an octa-core processor. It has an Exynos 7885 Octa chipset and 4GB RAM which makes it a super fast model for the price. On top of that, this phone also supports Samsung Pay which allows you to pay wirelessly when you shop. It also has an IP68 rating which makes it dust and waterproof (1.5m for 30 minutes) - something that you can only get from premium Samsung phones today.

Battery Life

With a bigger screen and heavier internal components, the Samsung A8 2018 also features a big battery capacity. It is built-in with Non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery which is optimized together with the OS and hardware to give you the longest possible battery life. With minimal use, this phone can last you the whole day!

Samsung A8 Price Philippines

The Samsung A8 price floats around P17,500 to P20,000 which is reasonable considering all the specs and features you are getting. The Samsung Galaxy A8 is a phone that looks and feels premium without the heavy price tag.
