Huawei has steadily been releasing devices in India under its sub-brand Honor. With this strategy, the brand has managed to place one of its devices in every price segment below Rs. 30,000. The Honor 8 (Review) has been its top-of-the-line device so far, and now it looks like the Honor 8 Pro will take over that position. The Honor 8 Pro sports dual rear cameras and is priced to go up against the new kid on the block, the OnePlus 5 (Review). So does this phone have what it takes to dethrone one of the most popular models around? Let’s find out in our Honor 8 Pro review.

Honor 8 Pro Summary

The Honor 8 Pro sports a 5.7-inch Quad HD display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. One of its biggest highlights is its dual 12-megapixel rear cameras. Honor has used one RGB sensor and one monochrome sensor to deliver sharper, more detailed photos. Powering the Honor 8 Pro is Huawei's top-of-the-line Kirin 960 processor, plus 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage which is expandable using a microSD card. This is a dual-SIM device with a hybrid SIM slot, and supports for 4G and VoLTE. It also packs in a 4000mAh battery to power it through the day, despite its relatively slim body.

  • Buy Honor 8 Pro instead of one plus five.
    Pranit (Jan 8, 2018) on Amazon
    I'm more than happy with the device. It's worth every penny. The low light imaging is really great and the processor is super fast along with a great battery.

  • A great phone at reasonable price!!!
    Sayantan Sil (Jan 13, 2018) on Amazon
    Excellent phone at reasonable price. Specially battery backup and processor speed. The phone is powered with 4000 mAH battery which is amazing. Normal usage for 2 days without charging is quite usual for it. I am using this phone for last 8 days. Moreover, I feel absolutely no heating problem, which is common with many of the existing budget phones in the market. Thanks to Huawei!!!

    Nishith (Jan 13, 2018) on Amazon
    Really a great phone with best performance and very good camera, it also has IR and the software installed by default covers max instruments. And the finger print sensor is extremely fast and accurate. Slight heating issue is noticed but its negligible.
