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

 

As a day-to-day phone, however, the design and ability of this mid-ranger are considerable. It's an upgrade over the previous model that will give plenty

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: In Depth

 

Honor 8 Review: We were impressed when Chinese phone maker Honor unveiled its new flagship, which combines great specs and design into a sub £400 device.

Premium design ; Great screen ; Competent cameras

Fingerprint magnet ; Older processor

Whilst it isn’t going to give rivals like Apple or Samsung real cause for concern, the Honor 8 offers a great all-round experience for a competitive price in the flagship space, with more individuality than perhaps Sony’s latest X handsets.

Honor 8 review – Is this a P9 killer?

 

Honor is back with the new Honor 8 handset, the latest follow-up to their popular yet slightly flawed Honor 7. Will it live up to the hype?

Beautiful design ; Solid camera ; Good performance

slippery and fragile ; Low-light performance worse than expected ; Emotion UI still not perfect

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.

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...
