Samsung Galaxy A8s has a look to keep your eyes glued to it. It has certain pros and cons:

Pros

  • The Samsung Galaxy A8s comes with a near-premium look which is comfortable to hold and manageable in your hand.
  • The Samsung Galaxy A8s has a powerful battery which holds enough juice for an entire day.
  • The phone can capture decent images when the lighting is camera-friendly.

Cons

  • The phone does not come with the headphone jack or the notification LED.
  • It is a bit slippery.
  • The Samsung Galaxy A8s has a mediocre with uneven white balance. It lacks the sharpness of Samsung’s premium AMOLED screens.
  • The phone has a choppy performance despite arriving with a capable processor.
  • The cameras on the phone come out with poor images in challenging lighting conditions, like low light situations.
  • The Samsung Galaxy A8s does not have 4K video Stabilization resulting in shaky footage.

Despite the cons, the Samsung Galaxy A8s is an undoubtedly capable handset. However, poor performance will remain a disappointing issue. If you can deal with the laggy performance, then this phone can be an excellent acquisition. Otherwise, Honor View 20 Pro could be a better alternative.
