Huawei Honor 8 Pro review

 

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

Honor 8 Pro

 

Honor is a sub-brand of Chinese company Huawei normally known for cheaper mid-range phones, but the Honor 8 Pro is the brand's priciest phone yet. It's also Honor's most accomplished thanks to an attractive, slim design, fast performance and a...

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.

Honor 8 Pro review: Flagship that's no money pit

 

If you're looking for a big-screen phone that's long-lasting and powerful, but which won't destroy your bank account, the Honor 8 Pro is well worth

5.7-inch Quad HD display ; Strong battery performance with QuickCharge ; Slender design (sub-7mm) ; Navy blue finish looks great ; Dual cameras fun

Feels wide in the new world of tall phones ; EMUI can be heavy-handed and not the prettiest ; Where’s the gloss back gone?

The Honor 8 Pro might not be quite as future-facing as 2017's latest flagships, but it's still a decent affordable phone. At this price point, given all the power and capability on board, it's a real alternative to consider over the

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.

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...

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 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 review: Honor’s big smartphone bargain now with Android 8.0 Oreo

 

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.
