  • Bad Stuff
  • Misses out on an AMOLED display
  • Inadequate, 3400mAh battery
  • Slightly overpriced
Verdict
In an era where most mid-range smartphones feature a display with a traditional notch, the display in the Galaxy A8s breaks the trend with a punch-hole system, which is comparatively less obstructive. So, if you are among those people who watch a lot of content, the Galaxy A8s is an ideal device for you. You also get a peppy performance thanks to the Snapdragon 710 SoC and an option to get the smartphone with 8GB of RAM. The device offers fairly good front and rear camera sensors as well. The low battery capacity is the only downside of this phone. And if you can live with it, the Galaxy A8s is pretty decent smartphone for its price.
