The Huawei Honor 8 is just another apparatus we would not typically review, but seeing as how options might appear limited given the circumstance surrounding the Galaxy Note 7, we needed to devote some time checking it out. Moreover, this grade of "mid-range" apparatus are now quite the little opponents, complete with what we would label as top-tier specs and features for a relatively inexpensive price.
Though the 5.2? FHD display and octa-core chip with 4GB of RAM certainly get the job done in terms of overall functionality, the Honor 8 does have its shortcomings. It took me a solid week to actually master all of the device's software tweaks around EMUI, and it is a skin I would rank as among the cheapest in terms of ease-of-use and appeal. But a few of the characteristics might make up for EMUI's appearance, so I can't sit here and stress over it too far.
On the backside, you'll get a dual camera system with just two 12-megapixel f/2.2 shooters. While one is for color and another for black/white, I never got the feeling that those cameras are excessively wonderful. If your lighting isn't just right, you will likely have no problems snapping photos, but once I found myself at low lighting situations and was attempting to take a moving thing, the Honor 8 simply couldn't keep up. In case the autofocus was to capture a major increase in pace, and Honor decided to tweak the detector's sensitivity to external light, the camera encounter might be far better.
We'll shortly have Pixel phones in house, and to wrap-up my period with the Honor 8, I will honestly say that I have loved using the telephone. For $400, there are not that many choices available on the market which provides as much performance and hardware sophistication since the Honor 8, and seeing as how this phone is marketed as the newest first US flagship, here is hoping there are lots more devices out of Honor to come.
