Selling a new phone with a focus on the camera is not a new thing and we’ve been impressed when it’s happened in the past by the Apples and Samsungs, Nexus of the world.
Just after Huawei’s P9 had stopped photography connoisseurs there comes very compelling Honor 8. Awesomely build in glass front n back with varying light reflections, it has become a necessity for every lifestyle enthusiast across the globe. This new age smartphone is 7.5mm svelte yet very suave matching up to a fashionista and stacking up well in sapphire blue, pearl white and sunrise gold.
The Honor 8 uses Huawei’s octo-core Kirin 950 and has 4GB of RAM, making it a highly capable smartphone but at heart it’s essentially a rebranded Huawei P9 that costs less with two premium dual-cameras. The Honor 8 also has 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB OTG and NFC.
I also found it held on to a JIO4G signal better than most other smartphones in weaker network areas, although at the same time it was worse affected by the network conditions as we were not able receive calls. Don’t know whether it’s an issue with JIO or Honor.
Along with the visual changes, EMUI has much more aggressive power-saving features, that shuts down problem apps and severely limits what can be active when the screen is off by default.
The dual cameras in Honor 8 are one of the highlight features with 12-megapixel colour and monochrome sensors. As of now we ‘re carefully checking on and don’t want to rush any conclusions and will come back with details after a little disruption.
