With the A8’s body measuring 149.2 x 70.6 x 8.4mm. Coupled with curved rear edges, the Galaxy A8 Plus sits nicely in the palm and doesn’t feel too overbearing.

The glass front and rear, and metal frame, give the Galaxy A8 plus a premium look, but in the hand the back of the device doesn’t feel as premium as the finish on the Galaxy S8.

Its 6-inch Super AMOLED screen provides abundant space for immersive movie viewing experience.

The Infinity Display boasts an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. It has a resolution of 2,220 x 1,080 pixels for a pixel density of over 400 ppi.

Camera
The Galaxy A8 plus comes with a 16-megapixel rear camera of aperture f/1.7. The camera app is similar to the ones that we have seen on flagship S-series and Note-series, and comes integrated with AR stickers that let you add some fun to your photos.

The front camera retains a 16MP + 8MP Dual camera.
It’s interesting to note that the dual camera is placed at the front rather than the back like the Galaxy Note 8. Samsung says users can switch between the two cameras depending on the type of selfie you want — from close-ups, to portrait shots with a clear, crisp background.

Hardware and processor
Taking a look under the hood is Samsung’s Exynos 7885 cota-core SoC that is built on 14nm process and has two Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.2GHz, and six Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.6GHz.

It is coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage. The combination of chipset and RAM ensures smooth performance in day to day use.

The Galaxy A8+ ships with Android 7.1.1 Nougat wrapped under Samsung’s custom UI, rather than the latest Android 8.0 Oreo.

Battery
Regardless of the performance, we are happy with the battery life the phone provides. The 3500mAh battery goes on for a full day quite easily, even if you are a heavy user and like to stream video content for a couple of hours each day.

Resistant
The phone also features IP68 water and dust resistance along with the Always-On display features that work really well with OLED screens.
