Does it have any heating issues?
Yes, a little bit, only while charging. It is normal, not a big issue. But this is a very old model (2015). Go for the latest model. But no doubt A8 is a superphone.

Elegant.
By Virkumar Chougule
Super slim and thin bezels make this phone look great. Full HD 1080p display and super AMOLED 5.7 inch display, it looks gorgeous. 16MP and 5MP megapixel camera is good but not the best. It has 4:3 sensor but finally, it captures good amount of details. Plus point is its battery, as it comes with 3050 mAh capacity. It lasts for more than one full day with moderate usage. Speaker is decent with good quality output. It has Marshmallow OS.(read more)
