Huawei Honor 8 review: Rich feature set and design, but still falls behind the OnePlus 3 - Tech2


Now that the Huawei Honor 8 has finally gone official, it's Rs 29,999 price tag does creep eerily close to the OnePlus 3, the one to beat in the sub Rs 30,000 (and at times even over) segment.

Huawei Honor 8 Midnight Black


The Honor 8's glossy, reflective coating channels Samsung's Galaxy S7 phone design (and smudges easily with finger grease), but at heart it's essentially a rebranded Huawei P9 that costs less than the original, and well under two premium dual-camera...

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,...
