Huawei Honor 8 review


So how can it contrast with the OnePlus 3?". "Doesn't the OnePlus 3 offer more for less?" Those are the issues that I have been getting for a long time now. It applies to as of late propelled Asus Zenfone 3 and in addition numerous different cell phones that are estimated in the Rs 29,999 section. Since the Huawei Honor 8 has at last gone authority, it's Rs 30,000 sticker price creeps frightfully near the OnePlus 3, the one to beat in the sub Rs 29,999 (and now and again even finished) section.

Is the Huawei Honor 8 on a par with the double camera Honor 6 Plus? How can it contrast with the Lenovo Z2 Plus? Is the camera comparable to the one on the OnePlus 3? Is it in the same class as the Huawei P9? All things considered, when you are finished perusing this survey, I will have addressed these inquiries and that's just the beginning. So immediately, how about we start dismembering this camera-driven cell phone that has some huge shoes to fill on account of its ancestor.

Assemble and Design: 8.5/10

Huawei has invested a lot of exertion into its Honor image however it is anything but difficult to state that simply Honor 5C has all the earmarks of being the cleaned one out of the parcel. So there haven't been an excessive number of Honor cell phones, that looked like it since the Honor 6 and 6+. All things considered, the Honor 8 is here to change the majority of this. It includes a plan that appears to be like whatever remains of the droids out there, however with a lot of appealing new components to fill in those exhausting holes. There's a metal edge that sits in the middle of two 2.5D sheets of glass and keeping in mind that numerous look the other way, you truly need to hold this gadget to feel the quality and craftsmanship that goes into it.


Everything is very much created, from the impeccable CNC machining process (no harsh or sharp edges anyplace) to the 2.5D screens on the back and front. However, the one on the back is constructed utilizing 15 layers of glass. I got the Pearl White unit for survey and keeping in mind that it might seem like the typical white and silver mix to many, it is definitely not that.


Huawei has run in with what gives off an impression of being a pearlescent wrap up, that it's not white but rather grayish with a fringe that looks near silver, yet in all actuality is extremely light shade of gold (like a genuine pearl). There's likewise a fine concentric roundabout surface like the Asus Zenfone 3, however its significantly more refined.



While these outline highlights are scarcely perceptible, they cooperate to let you effectively recognize a Honor 8 from some other Android cell phone that is out there. Actually, I abhor gold completes on cell phones, yet this one didn't trouble me as one can scarcely see the gold hued outline.


Flip the cell phone over to the back and you will see something here that is not even there on the Huawei P9 and the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, a consistent level back. So's two 12MP cameras (sans OIS) with laser help and a double tone light emitting diode streak that sits flush with whatever is left of the cell phone.


Investigate the blaze module and you will likewise see how well the metal ring (that is fitted to separate it from the glass body) sits simply a large portion of a millimeter beneath whatever remains of the screen. The unique finger impression peruser on the back is the main component that sits a millimeter underneath the adjusted glass. It's all in the points of interest and it's phenomenal!

Highlights: 7.5/10

The genuine successor to the Honor 6 Plus, the Honor 8 accompanies more strength. Crude power was an issue with its antecedent so Huawei in reality appears to have gotten their work done here. There's little to grumble about.

You get an a 5.2-inch LTPS Full high definition (1920 x 1080 pixels) determination show with a pixel thickness. From out of the box, the phone operates HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor together  with M-T880 graphic processing unit. The telephone has 4GB random access memory and with 32GB of interior stockpiling that can still further be expandable acknowledges external microSD cards up to about 128GB in limit.


Going to the bits that extremely matter on this cell phone, there are two 12MP camera's on the back (monochrome + shading) that element substantial 1.25 um pixels and f/2.2 gap. There likewise a half and half self-adjust framework that uses a laser to bolt the self-adjust alongside the standard differentiation based self-adjust discovery framework. The forward looking camera gets a 8MP sensor with a f/2.4 gap.

The Honor 8 is a solitary SIM gadget and the SIM plate space will acknowledge one nano SIM with the second pattern tolerating a microSD cards for capacity extension. What's more, there's a lot of other pleasant bits as far as interchanges. You get NFC, an infra-red unit at the best, a USB 2.0 Type C port at the last, 4G groups, Bluetooth v4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/air conditioning (Hotspot for up to 8 gadgets) and GPS. While Huawei claims that the cell phone bolsters VoLTE, we experienced difficulty associating a VoLTE organize utilizing a JIO SIM card.

Show: 7.5/10


I initially got the cell phone in bright Goa. So I didn't come up short on daylight for clicking some extraordinary photograph tests. What I ran out of was splendor on the show. No it's not dull by any methods and significantly more precise than the ones that you will discover in comparative valued cell phones. Be that as it may, it's simply not sufficiently brilliant to battle coordinate daylight. You will wind up looking into those flawlessly fresh catches more often than not when in coordinate daylight, yet inside I had no issues with it, aside from the way that it gets dimmer as the review point gets more extreme.

The Full high definition show did not baffle on sharpness and precision. It did however feature a marginally cooler hues, on the default settings, yet this can be balanced utilizing the shading wheel in the Display settings. Pictures showed on it didn't investigate soaked and farfetched. This is critical as the shading and temperature of the photos shot utilizing the camera cell phone looked basically a similar when we exchanged them to the work area.

Programming: 7.5/10


I'm not by any means a fanatic of custom skins, yet Huawei with its custom skin impresses to a degree. There are translucent components everywhere throughout the UI, from the bolt screen to the notices plate to the individual applications and even in the camera application. They take after some strict plan rules and look extraordinarily Huawei in the event that you have utilized Huawei cell phones before. It feels light, yet this is given you have the execution mode turned on in battery settings (which you should chase down at first). Change it to brilliant investment funds in control administration and you will see a touch of stammering all over yet these do help convey a more extended battery life. Be that as it may, this additionally indicates Huawei Emotion user interface with Android 6.0 Marshmallow locally available is beginning to feel overwhelming.

Going to the customisations, there are bounty. From the lockscreen to the settled number of customisable topics inside they do give a palatable level of customisation, however with no outer topic bolster. There is constrained bloatware yet these can be uninstalled effectively. Additionally accessible is a Google Fit-like Health application that gives you a chance to check your progression tally and monitor your wellness objectives.

Execution: 7.5/10


It may not beat the OnePlus 3 in crude benchmark execution, yet it stands quite well independent from anyone else. So, the Honor 8 comes frightfully close (5 percent distinction) to P9 with regards to the benchmarks. The benchmarks looked truly tolerable and certainly not under fueled by any methods. The Kirin 950 is an entirely capable chipset so gaming execution isn't an issue. The cell phone ran diversions like Dead Trigger 2, Real Racing 3, Modern Combat 5 and so forth quite well with no drop in outline rates. What it by one means or another couldn't deal with was the warmth when utilizing the camera.

The cell phone warms up at the territory beneath the cameras on the back and that thus will warm up the metal edge which gets awkwardly hot. We gauged the warmth levels utilizing our Fluke infrared thermometer and got readings of 39-40 degrees centigrade which is entirely hot for a cell phone. Amid ordinary activity, there were no indications of warming up and the telephone remained genuinely cool while playing recreations and running other outsider applications. Ideally, Huawei has a product settle for this.

Coming to call quality the sound was clear and boisterous on the two finishes. The sound yield from the speaker was genuinely boisterous amid diversions, however the same can't be said in regards to the collector where I frequently wound up going after the volume catches to expand the volume (yet couldn't on account of I had achieved the best end). The unique mark peruser on the Honor 8 was quick and precise. All the more vitally, you can squeeze it down and even swipe on it to play out a few capacities, such as pulling down the notices plate.

Camera: 7.5/10

While there's no Leica marking accessible on the back of the Honor 8, the aftereffects of my testing flaunted picture quality that was like what you get on the Huawei P9. The pictures on the P9 in contrast with the Honor 8 looked somewhat soaked, while the Honor 8 created pictures that looked... well the way the genuine scene resembled (which is something to be thankful for).

The new 12MP sensors and 1.25 um pixels in them are a change over its forerunner, the Honor 7. All things considered the general picture quality was greatly improved than what you get on the Xiaomi Mi 5 however not the OnePlus 3.

The sensor works in a way like the HTC One M8, and utilizations two sensors to peruse distinctive imaging information. One sensor peruses RGB (shading) information while alternate conveys monochrome information that makes it powerful brisk at centering on account of included contributions from the laser helped centering framework.

Pictures shot utilizing the cell phone did not look obviously sharp and without flaw. The hues looked reasonable and portrayed the scene shot splendidly. You can even now simply ahead and change the default sharpness and different settings in the camera settings. Because of the double camera framework there are no smothered features either. Indeed the shots created in HDR and the standard mode scarcely mirrored any distinctions.

While camera played well in sunlight, low light was not as amazing as I anticipated that it would be. Long exposures did splendidly and this was because of the Pro Photo mode found in the camera application. There's a lot of alterations and they all create awesome outcomes. Be that as it may, utilizing this camera in Auto Mode for low light shooting isn't a smart thought. The pictures looked sufficiently splendid, yet the clamor levels were too high and did not make for gorgeous pictures. The implicit Night Shot mode completes a superior occupation, yet the absence of OIS implies that you should convey a tripod.


There's even a light painting mode constructed right in. All you require is a relentless hand (since there's no OIS) or a tripod remain as you can make them astonish photos from this cell phone. All things considered, the commotion levels do sneak in when utilizing the camera in low light in auto mode. The wide gap mode was fun and delivered some average bokeh impacts, yet I would have favored more normal looking ones. A plume determination mode would have been extremely helpful.

Video was somewhat baffling. Like the P9, there is no 4K video in here. You do get 1080p shooting at 60fps too, which is an uncommon sight. While video hinted at faltering demonstrating battle. Truth be told, it looked nearly GIF like in the viewfinder. Although this could come down to the chipset level in light of the fact that to the Kirin 955 on the previously released P9 has the same with no hiccups.



The Honor 8 unit that we got from Huawei came without a container. All we got was a plastic wrapper around the cell phone and USB Type-C charging link (not even the charger) and this made a few issues. I once have a OnePlus 3 device lying around, so I chose to utilize the follow come "Dash Charger" to power the cell phone but after some hours that the charging was not all that effective endeavors to power it utilizing my iPhone 6s' follow come standard charger. This process took me a decent 3 hours to fully charge my Huawei 8 Honor from 9% to 100% which I think is still super moderate and not by any means normal by any methods. I do realize that the Honor 8 does not offer Quick Charging, but rather this one is bit too ease back even contrasted with a financial plan cell phones that accompanies Qualcomm's Quick charge. Disillusioning. Had I got the correct charger, the outcomes would have been something more.


Gotten utilizing Performance mode.

What was amazing is the way the cell phone with the 950 Kirin figured out how to hold the accuse of various battery administration modes. I wound up utilizing the Performance mode a greater part of the time and I got an OK 9-10 hours of battery existence with some photography, a lot of gaming, a few calls, 2 email accounts on match up and obviously WhatsApp. In Smart mode the telephone figured out how to press out some more with an extra 2 hours. Change to ROG control sparing, which brings down the screen determination to 1280x720 pixels and you can get significantly more screen on time with this gadget.

Decision and Price in India

At this point I may have just addressed the greater part of your inquiries. The Huawei Honor 8 in fact seems to face the OnePlus 3 and packs in something else as a double camera setup and extraordinary form quality. Sadly it doesn't confront the OnePlus 3 which offers better esteem, better camera quality and better battery life. It additionally does not accompany Dash Charge, a sturdy Snapdragon 820 chipset, 6GB random access memory and it likewise does not appear to help LTE groups in India.

The Honor 8 will be an extraordinary contrasting option to the expensive Huawei P9  and clearly superior to the Asus Zenfone 3. It is protected to put the Honor 8 second to the OnePlus 3. You can investigate the Honor 8 just on the off chance that you happen dislike the OnePlus 3 for its sheer size or its outline.
