Huawei Honor 8 is one of the hottest phones in the smartphone market as at the time of this writing. The handset was launched this summer and up to this moment, it has racked up some interesting feedback.
Huawei is not a new name for many people out there, especially after the heroics of the OEM with last year’s Google Nexus 6P. However, the new Honor 8 is something else – something that should make you think twice about getting that pricey Samsung Galaxy S7, HTC 10 or LG G5. If you are still doubting, here’re 5 reasons to convince you into buying the Huawei Honor 8 right away.
Huawei has some of the best smartphone designs around. In fact, it is somehow hard to put apart the company’s budget and high-end phones as far as design is concerned. This is what you get with the Huawei Honor 8, featuring a metal and glass alloy that gives it elegant looks. Be warned that the material used also means that the phone easily catches scratches and fingerprints, but this doesn’t overwrite the fact that the Honor 8 ha an exquisite design.
Many people may find themselves spending long periods staring on their phones, be it when browsing, reading articles, watching movies or even playing games. With this in mind, Huawei packed an eye-care mode in the Honor 8 – a feature that applies a filter to reduce eye fatigue. What happens here is that some of the blue light emitted from the screen is filtered out, which makes it less problematic when it comes to using the phone at night.
Some might claim that there are apps in the Play Store that can perform the same function, however, these cannot surpass the beauty of having the feature baked right into the phone.
Fast, effective fingerprint scanner
Many handsets today come with a fingerprint scanner, but this is a feature that has been reserved for the elites. As for the Honor 8, it brings this feature to the budget market and it does so in style. The scanner has a great speed, especially when likened to the like of OnePlus 3, last year’s Samsung Galaxy S6, and Nexus 6P and so on.
It gets even better with the Honor 8’s scanner as it doubles as a button that can be customized to offer different functions, including opening apps.
Compelling performance and dual camera
Like the LG G5, LG V20 and the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, the Huawei Honor 8 has a dual-lens camera setup at the back. This promises enhanced photography when compared to what many mid-rangers offer. It gets even better with the handset’s performance levels thanks to the fact that you get the same 4GB of RAM as what other 2016 flagships come with. With such a decent RAM, the Honor 8 promises great gaming and multitasking capabilities.
Huawei’s pricing has always been its USP. Despite the many goodies that the Honor 8 packs, you get a decent price tag of 399 euros, which is the European pricing. There is no confirmation of U.S. pricing yet, but it could be somewhere around $400, which is still not bad for such a phone.
