Here’s what we think of the Honor 8 [Video]

Enrique, 30 August, 2016

Our full written review of the Honor 8 is on its way, so if you are excited about the Honor 8, you should watch our video review in the meantime.

TLDR: I really enjoyed using this little phone. Battery life is quite good and the 5.2 inch screen size stands out among the many smartphones out there with 5.5-inch displays.

There are only a couple of shortcomings that don’t entirely justify the $400 (or Euro) retail price. Still, The Honor 8 is a wonderful device to use, it’s snappy and its Kirin 950 silicon runs much cooler than the Snapdragon 820.

EMUI is not the most pleasant Android skin, but we hope the Honor 8 gets updated to the newest version EMUI 5.0 along with the Android Nougat 7.0 update. So, without further ado, here is our video review of the Honor 8.
