Huawei Honor 8, my experience

The Honor 8 by Huawei Technologies is a great cellphone. It has replaced my Samsung samsung galaxy note n7000 which is pretty dated now. I chose honor 8 after careful research because I needed to have a high performance Android phone and not particularly expensive.

Speed is an important factor

By now it’s a fact that mobile applications are getting heavier. Even if it is with the utmost diligence possible a cell phone and installs the minimum necessary, sooner or later you will have to change it.

My phone is especially useful for working. I need some speed in answering applications. After buying the honor 8, I tried several applications and I have to say I’m really very happy, it working at 64bit.

Not all features are available for Honor 8

I only noticed a limiting thing, the absence of a manual camera management system. This feature has been added to more expensive mobile phones by the same manufacturer. It is therefore conceivable that this is a commercial choice of the manufacturer.

Most experienced users in the field of photography may encounter some difficulties in taking full advantage of the photographic potential of HONOR 8 precisely because in this field, manual management is of paramount importance if you want to get satisfactory results.

Robustness is paramount (making the bad ones)

My cellphone fell to the ground several times and for the moment nothing happened. In fact, it still works perfectly and there are no signs of scratching or anything else. Of course it would be advisable to put an anti-collision cover as I did. It’s a very robust phone but I think that in the end it’s just a matter of luck.

The price, even after several months from marketing, keeps good. This fact, many times, is a good quality index. I have nothing to blame on this cell phone and I recommend it.

Upgrades are quite common and there is a software to optimize the performance of your phone and your applications.
