Honor has had some pretty interesting budget offerings in the past but none of them have stood out quite like last year’s Honor 7 (Review). It was a well-crafted phone with good performance across the board, except in the battery department.

Honor 8 Summary

The Honor 8 is the successor to the Honor 7 and boasts of dual 12-megapixel camera sensors at the back. The design and build quality have improved, with curved glass on the front and back of the phone. The Honor 8 is powered by an octa-core Kirin 950 SoC, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with a custom skin called EMUI. There are plenty of gesture-based shortcuts. The fingerprint sensor works well and also doubles as a button which lets you launch apps and features. This is a single SIM smartphone with support for 4G and up to 128GB of expandable storage. At Rs. 29,999, the Honor 8 offers very good all-round performance.

  • If u r using mobile u cant avoid chinese.
    Manish Kumar (Oct 22, 2016) on Amazon
    Dont troll the phone jst bcoz its chinese. Plz put ur review according to its performance. Its funny to listen the people talking to avoid chinese phone and use indian brand. Just bcoz of brand u think u r using indian phone? Is it true? Not a single indian mobile brand are completely indian they use cheap quality chinese hardware and software in their phone especially micromax, lava xolo etc.
