I find it reasonable, switching from iphone 7.

Anyone tried using QC 3.0 charger on the A8+?
Did u get normal or fast charging?

Fast charging using QC 3.0 works on my previous Note 5, but it doesn't work on A8+.

Only the original Adaptive Fast Charger works on A8+.

As far as I know, none of the SAMSUNG phones support qc3.0. Qualified ones are supporting adaptive fast charging which is equivalent to 2.0..

Anyone experience poor 2.4ghz wifi speeds on this phone (5ghz is fine). Not sure if it's related to the exynos processor.

Speed test on my old Note 5 is 100mbps.
On my A8+ is only 40mbps.
On my brother's new A8+ also 40mbps.
On my brother's old j5 is 90+ mbps.

nothing to do with the processor in this case. there might be an issue with the settings of the your 2.4Ghz.. try to bump up channel bandwidth and limit 2.4Ghz to wireless N only..

Just get A8+ and planned to retire my Note 5.
I am hesitate now. the A8+ screen size is 6 inch, (VS Note 5 5.7 inch) but actually, the Screen display area is smaller than Note 5, and its Screen resolution also inferior to Note 5.

The A8+ has a 6" display no doubt, but it's of a 18:9 display ratio. An 6" 18:9 display has a display range similar to a 5.5" 16:9 display.

If you want a display range similar to your Note 5's 5.7" 16:9 display, you should get at least a 6.3" 18:9 display such as the Galaxy Note8(6.3") or the OPPO R11s Plus(6.43").
