Honor 8. Right off the bat, it’s a great phone. May be the one and only smartphone at 5.2-inch size with flagship specs too. Although the camera is a toned down version from the Huawei P9, it still manages to perform the fantastically. The only minor letdown for me is the battery usage. It didn’t last as long as the ASUS ZenFone 3, but it can still last for a day without a sweat. For all these features at such a price point, it’s just fantastic.

It’s no surprise that Honor will continue its line of flagship smartphones ever since its debut of the Honor 6. A year ago, I reviewed the Honor 7, and I really loved that phone. I can honestly say that the Honor 7 set a brand new standard of inexpensive smartphones with high-end specs, design, and features. A while ago, Honor announced their brand new Honor 8 – their sequel to their flagship smartphones. It took a rather huge change from its predecessor.


First difference – its box. The packaging on the Honor 8 is extremely different from any other smartphones in the market. It slides out from the bottom, and it reveals the Honor 8 standing on its side. Interesting.


There’s a small tab to lift up the entire “container” thing up, and it reveals two compartments slotted in the container itself. These two compartments hold the charger and USB-C cable in one of them, and documentations on the other. Very neat design overall.


Here are all the things that come along with the Honor 8. There are missing paperworks in our unit, and we apologize for that.
