Huawei Honor 8 Pro review

 

The Huawei Honor 8 Pro brings you much of the power and capabilities you'd expect of a high-end flagship phone, but with a UK price of £474 ( direct from Huawei ), it comes in cheaper than most other premium handsets. That converts to roughly $610 or...

The Huawei Honor 8 Pro packs a neat dual-lens camera, a great screen and plenty of power.

Battery life is disappointing and no waterproofing means that you'll need to be extra careful when using your phone around clumsy friends holding drinks.

The Huawei Honor 8 Pro's great specs and affordable price make it a worthy option if you want high-end features without emptying your bank account.

Honor has found a winner with the 8 Pro, delivering a high-performing phone at exactly the right price.

Huawei Honor 8 Pro Review

 

Just when you thought you've seen all the Android flagships that this half of 2017 has to offer, along comes Honor to blow your presumptions away. Many might brush off this Huawei sub-brand because it is, well, a sub-brand. That, however, would be a...

The Honor 8 Pro is definitely one of the unexpected surprises of the smartphone market this year. You would have never expected that Honor, whose smartphones so far have been on the far side of mid-range, would come so close to Huawei’s own flagship...

Honor 8 Pro, First Take: A high-quality handset, with a VR viewer in the box

 

Last year the 5.2-inch Honor 8 gained plaudits as a smartphone offering great features for a relatively low price -- it currently sells for around £300 (inc. VAT). Now the Huawei sub-brand has got a new flagship, the 5.7-inch Honor 8 Pro , with...

Honor 8 Pro Review

 

Just as rumored, the Honor V9 has been officially brought from China to the European shores as the Honor 8 Pro, making it one of the best phablets you'll be able to order there this season. The 6 GB RAM model is available to order in black, blue and...

Top battery life among modern phones with Quad HD displays ; Very fast charging time given the battery capacity ; Functional interface with rich gesture support ; Copious amount of RAM and smart memory management ; Vulkan graphics support ; H.265...

Initial camera focus is slow, and 4K video is jittery ; Photo and video colors could use a bit more pizzazz ; Unwieldy for one-handed usage and pocket-dwelling ; Display colors are way off on the cold side

The Honor 8 Pro takes off where the Honor 8 left, adding a larger display, a faster chipset, more memory, and a bigger battery, all in a very slim and elegant metal body. That being said, it doesn't differ all that much as a concept – it still offers a...

Honor 8 Pro review: a price-performance miracle?

 

Subsequent to the Honor 8 and Honor 8 Premium, which came with some extra internal memory, the Chinese manufacturer is completing this smartphone trinity with the Honor 8 Pro. The new Honor smartphone holds promise to, once again, be a hit in terms of...

Good workmanship ; Powerful hardware ; Good high-resolution display ; Price / performance ratio

No real advantages from its 6 GB of RAM ; No compatibility with Daydream

With the new 8 Pro, Honor has intelligently seized the hardware from Huawei and leaned heavily on Apple's design. The result isn't bad at all. The design, which is based on the iPhone, meets the demand of a large target market, and with the hardware,...

Huawei Honor 8 Pro review: A feature packed mid-ranger that challenges the OnePlus 5 - Tech2

 

The Huawei Honor 8 pro is a capable challenger that packs in similar, if not better hardware than the OnePlus 5.

Launched at Rs 29,999 with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage, there’s really not much to complain about with the Huawei Honor 8 Pro. It defeats the value for money offerings from OnePlus and defeats the OnePlus 5 at its own game with a refined...

Honor 8 Pro review

 

Big and powerful but not quite perfect

Stunning, high-end design ; Beautiful, rich display ; Oodles of power

Camera lacking OIS ; A touch too big for one-handed use ; No waterproofing

The Honor 8 Pro is an accomplished, well-rounded phone, but one that's just lacking that killer feature to take it from good into the realms of greatness. It’s easy on the eye, offers plenty of power and has a sizeable battery, but there’s nothing to...

Honor 8 Pro review: Can Honor’s big smartphone outsmart the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge?

 

If you're in search of a large smartphone, the Honor 8 Pro is quite simply one of the best money can buy

Price ; Design and build quality ; Performance

Camera flash performance

Still, the Honor 8 Pro is nothing short of amazing at this price, and if you’re looking to buy a large, phablet-sized smartphone for less than £500, the Honor 8 Pro should be one of your first choices.
