Samsung Galaxy A8+ review: Throwing down the gauntlet

The Galaxy A8+ is Samsung’s most ambitious showing in the mid-range segment, but that may not be enough.

Samsung is in a tough spot in India. The South Korean manufacturer was virtually unchallenged in the country for the last five years, allowing it to build a commanding lead in the handset segment. The Note 7 was the only blip in an otherwise smooth-sailing ship, but with the device never actually making its debut in the country, Samsung didn’t have to deal with a lengthy recall.
