Huawei P8 review: Light in motion

12 June 2015
The Huawei P8 is the proud successor to the Huawei Ascend P7, although the company seems a little apprehensive about admitting it. The Chinese manufacturer hasn't quite settled on a naming...

Sort by:

Wow, to think this is the guy who slammed, was it Meizu, for having bad battery life. Other than the Mate 2 (due to huge battery, efficient qualcomm chip, and a 720p screen), this company can't create good battery to save their lives!

Thank God I got a Z3C... Best decision in a phone ever!

I don't really understand why the author picked the LG G3 and the LG G Flex 2 as potential competition, and not the LG G4. Captain?

Wi-Fi b/g/n? No ac? Epic fail NO BUY

Priced too high for what it can offer. Only apple can get away with mediocre specs and high pricetag. It would be an option if it would be max 350 bucks. Huawei isn't nor premium, nor flagship at all, no matter what they try to prove. Compared to this, Lg G4's specs feel top notch.
Lack of app drawer - dealbreaker. Mediocre cpu and awful gpu - dealbreaker.
Mediocre battery - dealbreaker.
I like the display though, but if the next nexus comes with that obscure SOC, i'll skip that one too.

P8 has very good HW or SW ..
You are brainwashed to have every 6 months higher higher .. so pointless.. innovation should appear in 1-or 2 years..

Started off so well, lost me by the end.. Would have been my next phone. Fail

The same design as iphone 6 :/

  • AnonD-169727

An impressively elegant design only to be ruined by a mediocre SoC. Cram an Exynos 7420 or a Snapdragon 805 SoC in it, then we are talking.

Also, Huawei needs to realize it doesn't have an Apple-sque brand value to slap such an exorbitant price on its products.

Lets just all remain in the dark ages, since its more convenient for us to not even strive to better ourselves! Do us a favor and throw away all your electronic equipment and go back to living in the mountains.

Brand image and outdated UI are let downs. Few people will buy this for such a premium price.

  • AnonD-142922

1.No 4K video recording
2.No Wi-Fi ac support
3.Non-removable battery
4.No quick charging or wireless charging support

  • AnonD-309678

So the GPU performs poorly in benchmarks, but how does it perform in actual games? Because I don't play benchmarks nor does anyone else.

  • AnonD-354090

Garbage product. Bad performance + awful graphics. Looks like a clone between Xperia Z3 and Galax S6, but it looks ok nevertheless

Worst Performance of all 2015 Flagships !!!
Gpu is like a low end device.....
