Samsung Galaxy A8 ready for you to pick it up

Did your spring cleaning session include readying to toss out your old cellphone?

If you're not so bloodthirsty for the latest top of the line flagship, you can check out Samsung's Galaxy A8.  At $650CDN, it's pretty darned similar to the S line up.

Here are the specifications (you can compare that on our flagship database)

  • 5.6" @ 2220x1080
  • Exynos 7885 (2.2GHz x2 + 1.6GHz x6)
  • 4GB RAM
  • 32GB storage + microSD
  • front camera 16MP (f/1.7, 1/2.8", 1.12µm)
  • rear cameras 16MP (f/1.9, 1/3.1", 1.0µm) + 8MP (f/1.9, 1/4.0", 1.12µm)
  • 3000mAh
  • Android 7.1.1

So it has the 18.5x9, just isn't the QuadHD+ styling of the S9.  It doesn't have Qi charging, less storage, lowered spec processor...

Again, how much of that would the average person notice.  Probably not a lot.  And you'll save a fair bit too.
