Honor 8 Pro Review:

Huawei has launched its contender in the mid-range flagship smartphones category, and its warrior is the new Honor 8 Pro which packs some great hardware and amazing specifications and promises a lot. It comes in a slim 7 mm metal unibody which has the excellent build quality and beautiful looks. On the top, there is a 2.5D curved glass, which adds to the looks and comfort. The phone feels good and premium in hands.

It weighs 184 grams which is on the heavier side but it is justified as it comes with a big screen and big battery. It sports a big 5.7 inches Quad HD display with 515 ppi pixel density and has excellent quality, watching movies and videos is a treat. The Honor 8 Pro runs on Huawei’s own 2.4 GHz octa core HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor coupled with 6 GB RAM and Mali-G71 MP8 GPU. The performance is great, it can handle everything, be it intensive multitasking or heaviest games, it handles smoothly.

Another great thing about the phone is its highlighting dual rear camera setup which consists of two 12 MP sensors with f/2.2 aperture, out of which one is the RGB (color) sensor and other is the monochrome (black & white) sensor. When you click a shot both the sensors work together, with the RGB sensor capturing the subject and color data, the monochrome sensor captures additional details. The pictures have amazing quality, good details and accurate colors.

There is nice bokeh effect and the monochrome sensor can capture black and white shots on its own, and they turn out really good. Huawei’s camera app includes lots of modes and features, including a full professional mode and options to change vital settings of a picture after it is captured. The 8 MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture lens is a good selfie shooter as well. The Honor 8 Pro runs on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat with company’s EMUI 5.1 running on top. The EMUI is beautiful and comes packed with features and customisations.

It also includes a private second partition which is totally separate from the primary partition, and can be accessed directly from the dedicated fingerprint. The fingerprint scanner situated on the back is very fast and accurate. It is a dual sim phone with 4G and VoLTE support. It packs a great 128 GB of onboard storage which is expandable up to another 128 GB but, uses a hybrid slot. The phone is backed by a big non-removable Li-Po 4,000 mAh battery which despite the big 2k display, delivers a good one day’s battery backup, it also supports fast charging. It packs in an IR blaster and lets you control electronic devices as a remote, it uses Type-C USB for data syncing and charging.
