Samsung Galaxy A6 VS Samsung Galaxy A8: Samsung 2018 Mid-range Battle. Samsung is back again with the release of the Samsung Galaxy A6 and A6 Plus. They are both mid-range smartphones with some high-end features of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. For example, the trending AMOLED screen which is owned by Samsung. So it’s good to see their mid-range smartphones having not just the AMOLED screen but the Super version.

But the Samsung Galaxy A6 and A6 Plus are not the only mid-range phones to have been released by Samsung this year. Earlier this year, they released the Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus, which are also mid-range phones but a bit higher to the Galaxy A6 and A6 Plus. For this article, I would be comparing the Samsung Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A8. Samsung already said the Galaxy A8 is bigger than the Galaxy A6. But we need to be sure by checking out their specifications.
