Huawei Honor 8 Pro review


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

Expert review by : Andrew Hoyle (

This is the flagship phone for those who don't want to pony up for a flagship phone


Its two rear cameras take great pictures, but you won't get extras like waterproofing.

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 8 Pro Smartphone Review


On to new pastures. Huawei has delivered one of its best flagship smartphones yet with the latest Honor 8 Pro. You can find out in our detailed review, how the most powerful Honor device of all times fares in the comparison with well-known competitors...

bright, high-contrast IPS panel ; QHD resolution ; performance ; 6 GB RAM ; fast 64 GB UFS-2.1 storage ; dual-SIM ; color accuracy of the display ; good dual-camera ...

... but not of the high-end level ; high waste heat ; no Bluetooth 5.0 ; slow WLAN transfer rates ; USB 2.0 only ; average GPS module

The Honor 8 Pro is a well-built, high-end smartphone with excellent system performance and very successful visually. Compared to the current and some of last-year's crop of high-end devices, we have to make do with less in many places, despite its...

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 premium smartphone


Honor 8 Pro Android phone : As expected, Huawei's subsidiary today launched the Honor 8 Pro smartphone. The Android phone was launched earlier this year in China, by the name Honor V9, but the device now also comes to Europe. The new flagship phone is...

Starting from April 20, you can buy this Honor premium smartphone in Europe in the colors blue, black and gold. From today you can put a Honor 8 Pro pre-order, one could achieve several benefits, as the subsidiary of Huawei compiled three pre-order...

New Honor 8 Pro phone


Huawei Honor 8 Pro the European version of the Honor V9 : In exactly two weeks, Huawei's subsidiary Honor will introduce at least one new smartphone. The press invitations have already been send out and the manufacturer already spread several online...

On April 5 2017, Huawei Honor will most likely officially introduce this smartphone for Europe. In China the Honor V9 is sold at a price of CNY 2,999, which is just over €400. We expect the recommended retail price in Europe to be set at €450, as the...

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, 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: A total value for money deal


Honor 8 Pro sports a 5.7-inch 2K display and features a 12MP dual-camera setup. The smartphone is powered by a Kirin 960 CPU and has 6GB of RAM

Crisp 2K display is great for multimedia playback and gaming ; Premium design ; Capable camera ; Swift performer ; Decent battery life

Poor audio performance ; Camera lacks OIS ; No water-dust protection

Honor 8 Pro Review


The Honor 8 was one of the best mid-ranger devices of 2016 especially when it came to the camera performance, design and build quality. However, the small size often put off many prospective buyers who needed a larger device and perhaps something more...

Amazing Build Quality and Attractive Design ; Fast and Responsive Fingerprint Scanner ; Good Battery Life ; Gorgeous Display ; Good Camera Quality ; Fluid Performance

Weak Loudspeaker ; Audio Quality Isn’t that Great

Honor essentially took the Honor 8 as a base, enlarged it and fixed some of the flaws and shortcomings to create the Honor 8 Pro. The Honor 8 itself is a great phone and the 8 Pro is even better. The lack of 4K recording, the slippery design, battery...
