A brief look on the A8 gave us an impression for the famous and popular Galaxy S8 and S8+ flagships that everyone desires. However, there is no curved display edge while the maximum resolution is only at Full HD while the premium S8 series offers up to QHD+. This certainly depends on consumer preference as not everyone enjoys quality beyond 1080p.
