The Samsung Galaxy A8 now has a 2018 model. The phone series has been ready since 2015 so we’re now on the 4th-gen Galaxy A8. The new phone is out in the market as a mid-ranger but with almost premium specs. DxOMark has decided to check on the Android phone and see if its cameras are all good. The phone boasts a 16MP rear camera with phase detection autofocus, f/1.7 aperture lens, LED flash, and Full HD 1080@30fps video recording capability. And of course, there’s the dual 16Mp + 8Mp selfie camera system.
The phone only got an average score of 79 which is not so impressive. To be fair, it’s not really premium so the features aren’t as good. The mobile camera does offer a low level of noise, pleasant color rendering, well-controlled artifacts, and accurate test chart exposures in most conditions. Sadly, it offers limited dynamic range, low level of detail, and slow and occasionally inaccurate autofocus.
When it comes to videos, the Samsung Galaxy A8 shows a low level of noise and pleasant color rendering. We can see a fairly effective stabilization. There are minor issues: limited dynamic range, slow and inaccurate autofocus, and underexposure in very low light.
