The Samsung Galaxy A8+ features a 16-megapixel primary camera on the back with an aperture of f/1.7 along with with a single LED flash. This is also the company’s first smartphone to feature a dual camera setup (16-megapixel + 8-megapixel) on the front for selfies.
The Galaxy A8+’s camera might seem really good on paper, however, in real life, it doesn’t live up to those. The camera was able to take decent shots in good lighting conditions that remains true for closeup shots too, but wide angle shots when zoomed in showed a lot of noise. In low light conditions, images taken with the Galaxy A8+ consisted of a lot of noise.
Overall, the primary camera has decent colour reproduction but lacks details and sharpness when the light drops. The images taken with this device are decent to post on social media platforms and share with your friends but won’t make you looking like a professional photographer.
Yes, the Galaxy A8+ does have a dual camera setup on the front which helps bring the company’s proprietary Live Focus feature to the device. But the dual camera setup doesn’t do anything beyond that. The images taken with the front camera come out decent in daylight. The images have good colour reproduction and sharpness. However, again when it came to the low-light shots the story changed. Images taken in low-light conditions had a lot of grain in them and didn’t look too attractive.
