Samsung pairs a 5.7-inch full HD Super AMOLED display and an octa core processor on the Samsung Galaxy A8 and gives it a ₱24,990 price tag.

Since this is under the company’s A-series smartphone, there’s an all-metal frame, thin profile and an overall classy build quality which makes it look and feel like a flagship model.

The Samsung Galaxy A8 is equipped with 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 405 graphics processor for a smooth performance. Its Android Lollipop OS also helps a lot.

 Photography is handled by a 16MP main camera and 5MP front snapper. Both cameras use Samsung’s own image sensors ensuring good photographs.
