Huawei Honor 8 review

 

Huawei's Honor 8 is the definition of a 'flagship killer' and a steal at $400.

Huawei has achieved what amounts to a supply chain miracle: it’s crammed nearly every high-end component of the P9, a phone that retails for well north of $600 unlocked, into a handset half the price: $400 for 32GB and $450 for 64GB. That’s deserving...

Huawei Honor 8 review: Two cameras, at half the iPhone 7 Plus price

 

This well-crafted, midprice handset takes good photos with its double cameras, while saving you big bucks.

Huawei's Honor 8 is a slick little package that combines good photos from a dual-lens camera with a useful customizable button and a fingerprint reader. And it's easy to use one-handed.

Battery life falls short and knuckle gestures are gimmicky. It's a smudge magnet.

The Huawei Honor 8 is a likable midprice phone with some extra perks, but its short battery life holds it back.

Huawei Honor 8

 

The Huawei Honor 8 is a stylish unlocked Android handset with some unique features, but it faces stiff competition at its midrange price point.

Attractive. Sharp dual-sensor camera performance. Fingerprint scanner doubles as programmable key. Includes IR blaster, NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi, and fast charging.

Mediocre battery life. Heavy UI layer causes occasional performance hiccups. Slippery, fingerprint-prone design.

Conclusions The Huawei Honor 8 is an attractive unlocked phone with solid overall performance and some cool features you don't commonly see. But there's lots of competition in this price range. The Moto G4 is compatible with all major US carriers,...

The Huawei Honor 8 Review

 

Huawei's smartphone branding strategy seems similar to many car companies. Toyota, for example, has the Lexus marque for high-end, luxury vehicles and the Scion marque that develops sporty, lower-cost vehicles with customization options targeted at...

The Honor 8 finds itself in an interesting position. In the US market, there’s quite a few phones to choose from at the high end and the low end, but good phones in the middle are difficult to find. The OnePlus 3 and Moto Z Play both cost about the...

Honor 8 review

 

Top-notch specs for not too much wedge, but faces some competition for your cash

Gorgeous design, quality build - doesn't feel "mid-range" at all ; Dual cameras take impressive photos ; Battery life to last all day

Beaten on price by OnePlus ; EMUI has crept into every nook and cranny

Familiar hardware that punches well above its weight, and a design to die for, but gets beaten down to second place by the cheaper OnePlus 3.

Honor 8 review: A different take on the premium mid-range market

 

In the mid-range phone market there's a top dog: the OnePlus 3 . That phone has essentially blown the doors off what a device can provide at a £330 price point. And that, right there, is exactly the territory Honor - the subsidiary brand of Chinese...

Highly effective for the (anticipated) price point, looks great and is a step-up beyond the Honor 7 in all areas, dual cameras feature is quirky and fun, detailed controls of apps and battery life

Battery life could be better given the capacity, some graphical hangs, OnePlus 3 is a formidable competitor, fingerprint grease destroy the aesthetic style, EMUI re-skin can be fussy

As mid-level phones go the Honor 8 lays down some solid specification benchmarks for its £370 price. In reality, however, some of them don't quite live up to the paperwork: the battery life ought to be a little longer lasting, while the odd "hang" here...

Honor 8 review

 

An extraordinarily shiny Android phone with extraordinary specs

Alluring reflective glass design ; Neat fingerprint sensor gestures ; Bump-free dual camera design

Illogical software choices ; No OIS on the camera ; Competition offers better value

The Honor 8 is the fanciest-looking Android phone yet out of China, with an awesome, light-refracting glass design and high-end specs, but other less shiny budget phones offer better value.

Honor 8 Smartphone Review

 

Blue marvel. The Honor 8 comes to us in an appealing 2.5D-glass casing and classy colors. But is a stylish casing and dual-camera enough to convince buyers in the highly competitive mid-range? We will find out in our test.

very classy casing ; very solid ; dual-SIM ; NFC, USB OTG ; infrared port ; fast Wi-Fi ; decent camera photos ; very fast fingerprint scanner ; softkey ; screen's large color range ; high performance ; decent speakers ; practical battery life

no App2SD ; mediocre network diversity ; GPS sometimes sluggish ; moderate microphone quality ; screen's extreme bluish tint ; strong throttling during load ; relatively high power consumption

Huawei had to clip the wings of Honor's 8 to prevent it from becoming a threat to its own Huawei P9 top model. The unique, classy design, very fast and accurate handling, and high performance let the question arise why at least 100 Euros (~$112) more...

Honor 8 review: Honor’s mid-ranger gets Android 7.0 Nougat update

 

Honor's Huawei P9-alternative is well-priced, performs brilliantly and it now runs Android 7.0 Nougat

So should you buy one? It all really boils down to the price. At the Amazon price of £370, the Honor 8 doesn’t provide a convincing argument over the £390 Huawei P9 or, in fact, the superlative OnePlus 3T, which is only £10 more at £400. However, if...

Huawei's Honor 8 Lite skips the dual camera

 

This is one Honor phone that sticks to a traditional single camera.
