Test: Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 Smartphone (Sammanfattning)

Manuel Masiero (översatt av Daniel Eriksson), 03/06/2018

8 kommer efter 5. Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) efterföljer Galaxy A5 (2017) och är den senaste enheten i den populära Galaxy A-serien. Prislappen på 5 000 kronor kan dock visa sig vara impopulär. I våra tester tar vi reda på huruvida Samsung kan rättfärdiga detta ambitiösa pris.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 242.7 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 242.7 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 242.7 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 54 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 10570 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 588200) Hz was measured.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2 ms rise
↘ 2 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (26.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
5.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.4 ms rise
↘ 2.8 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 2 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (41.7 ms).

Med Galaxy A8 (2018) har Samsung tillverkat en välutrustad mittenskikts-smartphone som har mycket som talar för sig. Designen ser lyxig ut och känns högkvalitativ samtidigt som den är IP68-godkänd. Super AMOLED Infinity-skärmen är visuellt imponerande och är välkalibrerad och ljusstark samtidigt som den också har hög upplösning. Dual-SIM varianten är verkligen Dual-SIM, då expansion med microSD-kort hanteras av en dedikerat plats istället för att man ska behöva välja mellan ett andra SIM-kort eller ett microSD-kort. Selfie-fans får en framåtriktad dual-kamera med bra optik som lämnar rum för tricks samtidigt som den tar bra bilder, något som även gäller den bakre kameran på 16 MP.

Bra prestanda, men för ett tvivelaktigt pris. Galaxy A8 (2018) ger sig själv onödig konkurrens då den snabbare och bättre utrustade toppskikts-modellen Galaxy S8 bara kostar runt 1 000 kronor mer.

Trots dessa positiva aspekter så kommer det ambitiösa utgångspriset på 5 000 kronor troligen skrämma bort en del intresserade köpare. Även om den går att få billigare nu så håller sig Galaxy A8 (2018) prismässigt nära Galaxy S8, som har bättre funktioner och prestanda för bara knappt 1 000 kronor mer, vid skrivande stund. Det finns också alternativ till Galaxy A8 (2018) som är likvärdigt snabba, såsom ASUS ZenFone 4 ZE554KL eller BQ Aquaris X Pro, som finns tillgängliga för 4 500 kronor respektive 3 500 kronor.
