To what extent do we recommend the Galaxy A8 Duos? We have summarized the ease of use and convenience of each point that people look at when choosing a smartphone.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Galaxy A8 Duos

Galaxy A8 Duos's size

The Galaxy A8 Duos is 3.0 inches (76.8 mm) wide, 6.2 inches (158 mm) tall, and 0.2 inches (5.9 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Galaxy A8 Duos, it weighs about 151 oz (151 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the Galaxy A8 Duos, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Galaxy A8 Duos's screen

The Galaxy A8 Duos has a 5.7 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the Galaxy A8 Duos is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The CPU performance of Galaxy A8 Duos

The processing power of the Galaxy A8 Duos is, at 1.8GHz+1.3GHz×8(OctaCore), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The Galaxy A8 Duos has 2GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the Galaxy A8 Duos rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

Galaxy A8 Duos's storage capacity

The Galaxy A8 Duos has 32GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Galaxy A8 Duos is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

The camera function of Galaxy A8 Duos

The Galaxy A8 Duos has a 16 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Galaxy A8 Duos comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Galaxy A8 Duos

The Galaxy A8 Duos has a relatively large battery with 3050 mAh. The Galaxy A8 Duos has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Overall assessment of Galaxy A8 Duos

The Galaxy A8 Duos is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
