Huawei GX8 Review: A Well Designed, Premium Feeling Mid-Range Smartphone


Since the Nexus 6P was released last year, Huawei has been gaining some name recognition momentum in markets where it was previously not sold, or relatively unheard of. This of course has paved the way for other Huawei smartphone models to start...

Solid design, premium feel. Decent performance, camera, and battery life. Great price point

Speakers could use a bit of work

If you're looking for a decent mid-range Android smartphone with a premium feel that won't break the bank, the unlocked Huawei GX8 is definitely worth a look.

Huawei GX8 review: A handset that redefines mid-range


Huawei has dominated headlines with the release of the Nexus 6P, Mate 8, P9 and P9 Plus. But during the same time, Huawei has also introduced the GX8 - a handset that could redefine the mid-range.

Huawei GX8 review: no compromises


Huawei introduced the new Huawei GX8 during the fall of 2015. This 5.5-inch smartphone belongs to the new range that could be considered ‘high-midrange', as we consider the Moto X Play to be. Have these smartphones chiseled out a new class, or are they...

Design ; Camera ; microSD slot

Weight ; Reflective screen due to 2.5D design

The Huawei GX8 leaves me with mixed emotions. On the one hand, its design surprises with its premium appearance and solid build quality, but this doesn’t contrast well with the handset’s poorly integrated screen.

Hands on: Huawei G8 review


It's the Mate S in a cheaper guise

Strong spec sheet ; Quick finger scanner ; Decent screen

Chunky, heavy build ; Questionable interface

Huawei G8


When a brand-new product gets announced with just a brief mention of the specs and not much else, I would normally assume that it wasn't going to be much good. But that can't be said for the Huawei G8.

Premium materials

Chunky proportions

It’s not quite as elegant to look at as its launch partner the Mate S, but the Huawei G8 still packs of lot of the same premium features for considerably less money.

Huawei G8 Review


The G8 is a great phone for the price, but it's also competing against the Moto X Play; not an easy task.

Basically, it’s up to you: a marginal improvement inperformance and a better camera, or a significant advantage in look and class? Whichever you pick, you'll get a great phone compared to what you pay.
