Setting Up The Samsung Galaxy A8 2018

The Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 (Price Check) comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat pre-loaded. Let’s boot it up, and see how easy it is to setup!



The Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 (Price Check) has a 5.6″ bezel-less Infinity Display, so it does not feel like a large smartphone. In fact, it is about the size of a 5″ or 5.2″ smartphone. This means it will feel more comfortable in smaller hands, and fit better in smaller pockets.

The use of an Infinity Display means there is no physical Home button. The virtual Home button on the Galaxy A8 2018 (Price Check) is not pressure-sensitive like that of the Samsung Galaxy S8. You need to double tap it to activate the virtual Home button.

Available Memory & Storage

The Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 (Price Check) comes with 4 GB of LPDDR4 memory, of which 1.8 GB (45%) is available for use. There is a fair bit of bloat, but slightly better than the 1.5 GB in the Galaxy S8. With that in mind, 1.8 GB of memory is plenty of memory to run several applications simultaneously. In fact, it is more memory than what some low-end smartphones ship with!

The Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 (Price Check) comes with 32 GB of internal flash storage, with 23.2 GB of free space for you to use. That is enough space to store about 4,200 photos, or 3 hours of 1080p videos. If that’s not enough, you can top it up with a microSD card (up to 256 GB).
