An Excellent Bargain!
02 Mar 2017 by Review The Huawei Honor 8 is an excellent phone , especially when you consider the price . The phone comes with a sweet 5.2" FHD IPS display , which comes at an excellent 424 ppi , however , it doesn't come as good as the Galaxy A5 2017 , which we will be comparing the Honor 8 to for the rest of this review , despite the fact that the A5 is newer. If you are buying the Honor 8 , you're most likely looking for a great camera , at an average price , and trust me , , you won't be disappointed with the Huawei Honor 8 . The phone rocks dual 12MP cameras setup , which never fails to produce amazing pictures , though it could do better with color reproduction. It also has an 8MP front shooter , which produces great selfies . Overall om the camera department , the Honor 8 has the A5 slightly down .The Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 950 is in no need of introduction, it's a great SoC, on par with the Samsung Exynos 7880 offered in the A5 2017 , with either the same 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage as the A5 , or a slightly better 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage . Software is again , a subjective topic, and I honestly dislike the EMUI that Huawei puts on their phones. The lack of an app drawer and the notification tray are partially reminiscent of iOS , which is not a good thing when buying an Android phone unless you're coming from iOS. The Design, is honestly one of the best out there , far superior from the A5 .it is an extremely elegant and stylish design , and features amazing build quality, glass and metal . The most interesting thing about this device is the reflections that the back glass give out , they're just amazing . Battery life is above average- not by much though , at 3000 mAh , it should give you about 5-7 hours of screen on time , which is on par with other devices in this price range . Well that concludes my review of the Huawei Honor 8 . Thanks for your support , and I ll catch you in the next review , how bout dah ? 😜✌ Pros Excellent Camera Great Performance Great Design and Build Quality Cons IPS display- Not as Good as sAMOLED Poor Android Skin
