With this new release of A8, being dubbed as Samsung Galaxy A8 2016, I have no doubt that Samsung will keep releasing every model of their phone devices. It will no longer be two years difference, a year, a new model of the same phone with some tweaks in their specifications; I guess that is the new deal with Samsung mobile. They will need to add higher specifications to command a little more value in the market than their previous releases.

We could see in the Samsung S7, which has nothing less than 4 edition in the same year. We saw the Samsung Galaxy S7, the Samsung S7 edge, The Samsung edge Olympic edition, and the Samsung s7 Edge Injustice Edition.

Though Samsung is not all about phones, we could see the dedication as some people want to believe these days. Samsung a lot of effort in their smartwatches, and recently keeping to their promise of adding Samsung pay feature to these wearable devices. They have also of a recent launched a dedicated video site for Samsung smartphone-only users to watch 360-degree videos with the using Virtual Reality technology. It is not worthy to say that Samsung only concentrated in auctioning out new devices without keeping up with their efforts in getting some bucks from services Google, Facebook and Microsoft firms are known for.

Reviews Of Samsung Galaxy A8 2016 In Nigeria And Kenya

Before we proceed, here are a few reviews from people.


“I bought Samsung galaxy A8 2016 model on 24-6-2016. It was a very good experience in browsing Internet with 4g, call clarity is good, battery is good, CAMERA is fantastic in low light also. Front camera is doing good job for taking amazing thing I need to mention here .while charging battery we can use the normal charger instead of the travel charger given in the box, if I use the white travel is getting little hot while charging. Software is very good (android lollipop) it’s worth for money under 25k budget. I would suggest this mobile to all who are all fans of Samsung. Samsung is rocking!!!” – Vimal

“I recently purchased my A8 – Gold in a local store as an exchange to my HTC 826. The most striking feature of A8, of course, is its design aesthetics. But most importantly the gadget, though stunning in looks, is extremely well built as for as its hardware is concerned. Packed in it, is its expansive 5.7 in Screen but really quite handy. Its Octa core 1.8 GHz Exynos 5430 processor is at its blazing best. The principal rear camera is superb with a very good capture of low lights. The front with wide selfie feature is comparable to I-phone 6. Why not flash for the front camera? -mobile makers should ponder on this.

The phone is as cool as a cucumber while performing – the one main reason why I discarded my earlier HTC. Even with long exposure to video capture it is only tolerably heated. The video capture (FHD)itself is excellent. The 2 GB RAM though could have been upgraded to 3 GB. Well for all other features like OTG support etc.. you name it, it has it. The sounds are little low though clear.But then is it asking for too much for its cost? (Street price Rs 26,000). Overall a critical assessment is that the phone is really very good and honest recommendation is – go for it….” –


A closer look at this 2016 version reveals a slight difference in the memory speed and performance; the first A8, which was released in 2015 is powered by 1.2GHz CPU speed, the newer variant runs at 2.1GHz.


The fingerprint sensor is also available for security.
