Samsung is really pushing its limits with the Samsung Galaxy A8+ 2018. There’s a lot of things that are done right with this phone. The display is good, the camera is excellent and the battery capacity is spot on. There is very little to complain.
“At Samsung, consumer-centric innovations are at the heart of our business. With Galaxy A8+, we are bringing our customers’ favorite features from our flagship smartphones, such as the Infinity Display and our first Dual Front Camera with Live Focus, to our Galaxy A series. Galaxy A8+ comes with flagship features, never before seen on a smartphone in this price segment. It defies the ordinary and challenges the status quo. It is a phone with attitude, in all aspects” – Mr. Pranaya Ratna Sthapit, Head IM Biz, Samsung Nepal.
The Samsung Galaxy A8+ 2018 is the first Samsung phone to come with a front dual camera. And the specs of the front camera is really good too. 16+8MP front camera means that the phone has the best front camera on any Samsung smartphone. The primary use of the front camera is to bring in the depth effect where the background is separated from the foreground. Or in simpler terms, for bokeh effect.
However, the phone misses out on dual-rear cameras found on many of its competitors. The rear camera comes with 16MP with f/1.6 lens sitting on top of it. The other disappointing thing about this phone has to be the video recording capability. It can only shoot up to 1080p video @30fps.
The Galaxy A8+ 2018 comes in either Black or Gold color option and can be purchased for Rs. 59,990. What do you think of the phone? Leave your thoughts down below!
