Huawei Honor 8 review


Huawei's Honor 8 is the definition of a 'flagship killer' and a steal at $400.

Huawei has achieved what amounts to a supply chain miracle: it’s crammed nearly every high-end component of the P9, a phone that retails for well north of $600 unlocked, into a handset half the price: $400 for 32GB and $450 for 64GB. That’s deserving...

Huawei Honor 8 review: Two cameras, at half the iPhone 7 Plus price


This well-crafted, midprice handset takes good photos with its double cameras, while saving you big bucks.

Huawei's Honor 8 is a slick little package that combines good photos from a dual-lens camera with a useful customizable button and a fingerprint reader. And it's easy to use one-handed.

Battery life falls short and knuckle gestures are gimmicky. It's a smudge magnet.

The Huawei Honor 8 is a likable midprice phone with some extra perks, but its short battery life holds it back.

Huawei Honor 8


The Huawei Honor 8 is a stylish unlocked Android handset with some unique features, but it faces stiff competition at its midrange price point.

Attractive. Sharp dual-sensor camera performance. Fingerprint scanner doubles as programmable key. Includes IR blaster, NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi, and fast charging.

Mediocre battery life. Heavy UI layer causes occasional performance hiccups. Slippery, fingerprint-prone design.

Conclusions The Huawei Honor 8 is an attractive unlocked phone with solid overall performance and some cool features you don't commonly see. But there's lots of competition in this price range. The Moto G4 is compatible with all major US carriers,...

The Huawei Honor 8 Review


Huawei's smartphone branding strategy seems similar to many car companies. Toyota, for example, has the Lexus marque for high-end, luxury vehicles and the Scion marque that develops sporty, lower-cost vehicles with customization options targeted at...

The Honor 8 finds itself in an interesting position. In the US market, there’s quite a few phones to choose from at the high end and the low end, but good phones in the middle are difficult to find. The OnePlus 3 and Moto Z Play both cost about the...

Honor 8 Smartphone Review


Blue marvel. The Honor 8 comes to us in an appealing 2.5D-glass casing and classy colors. But is a stylish casing and dual-camera enough to convince buyers in the highly competitive mid-range? We will find out in our test.

very classy casing ; very solid ; dual-SIM ; NFC, USB OTG ; infrared port ; fast Wi-Fi ; decent camera photos ; very fast fingerprint scanner ; softkey ; screen's large color range ; high performance ; decent speakers ; practical battery life

no App2SD ; mediocre network diversity ; GPS sometimes sluggish ; moderate microphone quality ; screen's extreme bluish tint ; strong throttling during load ; relatively high power consumption

Huawei had to clip the wings of Honor's 8 to prevent it from becoming a threat to its own Huawei P9 top model. The unique, classy design, very fast and accurate handling, and high performance let the question arise why at least 100 Euros (~$112) more...

Honor 8 Review


To say that Huawei is a big deal in the smartphone market is nothing short of an understatement, but despite the company's unquestionable international success, to say nothing of its recent market growth, it's been slow to use that momentum to create a...

Dual cameras capture some nice-looking pics ; Incredibly fast, accurate fingerprint scanner ; Attractive hardware design, especially at this price ; Battery life that should get you through the day

Performance just can't quite compete with flagships ; EMUI may be a bit too iOS-y for serious Android fans ; Brand still largely unknown to US shoppers ; Price point presents some stiff competition

The Honor 8's one cute little phone, and the company could do a lot worse than to put this model forward as a hook for attracting new US customers. The phone's stylish, feels nice, and doesn't over-sell on features: the only thing that even threatens...

Huawei launches 8 inch Honor Tab 5 Android tablet for $165 and up (in China)


Huawei is one of the only companies that continues to crank out premium Android tablets with price tags . But the company's latest model is more of a mid-range device. It also doesn't actually have the Huawei name on it.

There’s no word on if or when this tablet will be available in the US or other markets.

Huawei Honor 8: Impressive, but lacks appeal [Review]


The Honor 8 Pro is the latest premium smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer, best known as an offshoot of tech titan Huawei.

So is the Honor 8 Pro worth your money over an iPhone or Galaxy S8?

Honor 8 Review


The Honor 8 is another device we wouldn't typically review, but seeing as how options may seem limited given the circumstance surrounding the Galaxy Note 7, we wanted to spend time checking it out. Additionally, this tier of “mid-range” devices have...
