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.

  • Nice phone in medium segment
    Jithin Chand P (Oct 25, 2016) on Amazon
    I was waiting for Google pixel and have seen almost same spec with honor 8 and one +3, on detailed review I liked this phone and ordered. Once I have placed the order I was little bit septical on the same and also thought to cancel the order . But the phone has dispatched on the same day and I have received the product in 2nd day morning. After removing the cover and seeing the quality of packing I have realised the importance of quality given by the team. After using the phone and getting the real time experience with the performance and the features I am really impressed.... The phone looks better than iPhone 6 and will say it's better than iPhone 6 in all manner. I am not sure how will be the performance after loading all apps, but at this point of time I am really satisfied.The only thing which was not there was ,I have expected a earphone!! I don't know whether earphone was misplaced or its not provided in the box....Don't go ahead with comments of boycotting Chinese item , we should show our strength my making the make in India program a reality.....

  • Awesome phone but slightly over priced
    Sneha (Feb 6, 2017) on Amazon
    I am using this phone for past one month. Great performance. Awesome camera for its price the close up shots are awesome.. long distance shot clarity could be better (Dual camera has no big Effect here!!) . There are many modes with almost all features in a DSLR camera. I personally love the aperture mode and document scan mode. The finger print scanner is at the back which is also used as a Smart key. This feature is awesome. Then we can use knuckle touch to take screenshot. Screen recording is another unique feature . One of the most useful feature for me is the smart controller via which I could control all electronic devices at my home (feel like smart home!!!) . You have mirror mode which will be very helpful (atleast for girls). Performance is really good.. there is no lag.. battery is okay (not so awesome).Model looks classic. The Box doesn't contain ear phones and the it's a single SIM phone (in India). Its a big drawback when we see its price. Phone should be used only with a mobile case.. it's slippery. Overall it's the best phone I ever owned !!
