      Infinity display 

      See even more with the Samsung Galaxy A8. With virtually no bezel on both sides and a longer screen, you're able to see more of your news feed or the article you're reading without the relentless scrolling. 

      Featuring a Full HD+ resolution on Samsung's beautiful Super AMOLED screen, the Samsung Galaxy A8 makes for a great portable work and entertainment companion that's a joy to see and hold. 

      Take perfect photos 

      There's so much fun to be had with the Samsung Galaxy A8's cameras. Get perfectly detailed shots at night with the rear camera's large sensor and bright lens, ideal for capturing nightlife and landmarks alike. 

      Take selfies with a professional edge in Live Focus mode. Choose how detailed or blurry you want the background to be to make you and your mates stand out. Customise your photos with funny stickers and vibrant filters, adding to the fun. 

      Set reminders and adjust settings with Bixby 

      Keep track of your to-do-list using only your voice and a little help from Bixby. The Samsung A8's virtual assistant makes life a little easier. 

      Set reminders for the things you need to get done today, adjust your phone's brightness to the perfect level for you, or ask it to ring a particular contact. It's even easier than speed dial, and keeps you organised day-to-day. 

      Dual Messenger 

      There's a time for work and a time for play, and thanks to the Samsung Galaxy A8 there's a place for both. 

      With Dual Messenger, you can connect to two different chat accounts to keep your professional and social chats separate and easy to manage. That means no more sending accidental emojis to your co-workers. 

      Safeguard your personal data 

      The Samsung Galaxy A8 makes it simple to protect your most valuable information. Adding your data to the Secure Folder enables it to store and encrypt sensitive info, making sure only you can see it. 

      It's not just your info it can hold, either. Use it to store photos, videos, files, apps and more. You'll be safe from prying eyes wherever you take your Samsung Galaxy A8.

      If you find Amazon.co.uk (excluding Amazon Marketplace), ao.com, Argos, Asda, John Lewis or Tesco has the same item at a cheaper price, we’ll match it. Even if their price includes a voucher offer, and even up to 7 days after you’ve bought from us.

      How to request a price match

      Availability Checker

      How and when can you get hold of your selections? Finding out should be quick and easy, so with just a few clicks our Availability Checker shows you:

      • Delivery dates, time-slots and prices
      • Local stores with stock you can collect from now
      • Local stores you can get items sent to for you to collect later
      To use our Availability Checker, simply:

      2. Click on the magnifying glass
      3. Review the delivery and collection options local to you – just click on any one to add it to your basket

      Find something you want but it’s not in stock? On the item’s product page, simply click on ‘Email me when back in stock’, and let us have your email address. We’ll let you know as soon as it’s available again.

      Order online and collect in store

      Subject to what you’re ordering and where you want to collect from, you can:

      Reserve & Collect – reserve online for free and collect at a local store as soon as you like. Once reserved, your item’s held till closing time the next day, to be paid for when you collect.

      Pay & Collect – pay online, and have the item sent, for free, from our warehouse to a local store for you to collect. Starting on the date the item arrives in store – which you choose in checkout – you have 28 days to collect it.

      Your fastest way to order online for collection is to use our ‘Availability Checker’ feature:

      1. Enter a town or postcode in the box on the product page for an item you’ve selected
      2. Click on the magnifying glass
      3. Review the collection options local to you – just click on any one to add it to your basket
