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: OnePlus 5 has some serious competition

 

At Rs 29,999, Honor 8 Pro is priced lower than the OnePlus 5 which starts at Rs 32,999. And it is by no means an inferior phone. If you just want a solid phone at an attractive price, the Honor 8 Pro has everything. I have extensively tested the Honor...

Honor 8 Pro is attractive, well-built Android phone that offers great battery life and excellent cameras on board. If you are looking for a high-end phone that costs under Rs 35,000, Honor 8 Pro is the one to look forward to. But there are still a few...

Honor 8 Pro review

 

High-end flash for half the usual cash

Quality screen, design and hardware for your cash ; Dual cameras punch above their weight ; Battery life is great

EMUI very different from vanilla Android ; Honor 8's glass back gone in favour of boring metal

It's got power, great cameras and a high quality display, all wrapped up in a good-looking handset that doesn't cost a fortune. You'll have to think very carefully before spending more money on a phone.

Huawei Honor 8 Pro Review

 

The Honor 8 Pro is priced at Rs 29,999 and runs on Huawei's Kirin 960 SoC. It sports 6GB RAM and 128GB built-in storage, expandable via a microSD card. The dual-SIM smartphone bears an all metal design

Good build, well designed, feels premium ; Camera has good performance in well-lit situations ; Smooth overall performance ; Well priced

Sub par low light camera performance ; No waterproofing ; foot print is a bit large for comfortable one handed usage

Overall the Honor 8 Pro is a good device for what it offers. The build and design of the phone is fantastic and everyday work happens very smoothly on the device. There isn’t a game or app that didn’t perform on the phone. The battery life is decent....

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...

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: Honor’s big smartphone is still a fantastic bargain

 

If you're in search of a big-screened 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.

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.
