Reviews for the Honor 8 Pro

86.5% Honor 8 Pro Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
On to new pastures. Huawei has delivered one of its best flagship smartphones yet with the latest Honor 8 Pro. You can find out in our detailed review, how the most powerful Honor device of all times fares in the comparison with well-known competitors of the high-end segment.
Honor 8 Pro review - Thin metal VR powerhouse phablet on a budget
Source: Tech Nave English
The Honor 8 Pro builds on the solid foundations of the Honor 8 and takes a running jumping leap with it all to become an excellent value flagship phablet that you can get for below RM2K. Initially priced at an RRP (recommended retail price) of RM1999, you can now get it at some sellers for RM1839 and you’ll be hard pressed to find a similar 2K display smartphone within this same price range.

80% Honor 8 Pro review: OnePlus 5 has some serious competition
Source: The Indian Express English
Honor 8 Pro is attractive, well-built Android phone that offers great battery life and excellent cameras on board. If you are looking for a high-end phone that costs under Rs 35,000, Honor 8 Pro is the one to look forward to. But there are still a few drawbacks to consider. The software experience is still cluttered compared to that of OnePlus 5.

Honor 8 Pro camera Review : Best Dual Camera Setup Smartphone?
Source: Gadget Diary English
All said and done, the dual camera on the Honor 8 Pro is nothing short of magical. Such finesse is rare, if not unheard of, even in phones that cost 10 to 15 thousand more than the 8 Pro. The images clicked from it show accurate colors, ample details, phenomenal contrast and awesome dynamic range. Huawei has put in a lot of effort in beating conventional smartphone photography constraints and it shows.

Honor 8 Pro is a visually appealing, well-designed with excellent performance. In addition, the battery lasts long even though it has a 2K display and a powerful Kirin 960 CPU. The dual camera is satisfying and takes on the rivals like OnePlus 5.

84% Honor 8 Pro Review: OneUp on the OnePlus 5?
Source: Tech PP English
A couple of years ago, it was relatively routine to have a device with Android flagship level hardware in the sub-Rs 30,000 – in 2014, we had the OnePlus One, the Mi 3 and the Nexus 5 in that zone. Today, however, that space is relatively empty, with perhaps the OnePlus 5 (which starts at Rs 32,999) coming closest to it. The Honor 8 Pro slips into that category very comfortably with its combination of big display, big battery, big memory and big storage. And at the time of writing, it is comfortably by far the best device you can get for under Rs 30,000.

Source: India Today English
The Honor 8 Pro is an accomplished all-rounder -- it has a great high-resolution display, mighty impressive cameras, top of the line internals, snappy performance, classy looks and impressive battery life. At Rs 29,999, the smartphone poses a very real threat to the OnePlus 5 and is very easy to recommend to anyone who wants an extremely proficient smartphone but does not want to spend flagship level money.

Overall, the only other smartphones that comes close is the OnePlus 3T that currently retails on Amazon at Rs 29,999. At that price you get a processor that is half a year old, a smaller battery, a Full HD display and a decent low light camera.

The Honor 8 Pro is a premium phone with an effective dual camera and a high-end chipset, and it’s still cheaper than the competition. So, if you are comfortable with a big display phone, and are looking for something under 40K, the Honor 8 Pro is definitely worth considering.

Honor has built the Honor 8 Pro with the best technology it has to offer, which is at par with some of the best in the industry. The Kirin 960 processor is the most powerful silicon that Huawei currently makes, even though it falls behind the Snapdragon 835. The Honor 8 Pro also runs latest version of EMUI. Compared to the OnePlus 5, you get twice the storage and a higher resolution screen at an even lower price.

Overall the Honor 8 Pro is a good device for what it offers. The build and design of the phone is fantastic and everyday work happens very smoothly on the device. There isn’t a game or app that didn’t perform on the phone. The battery life is decent. If there is a downside, it’s the viewing angles and overall brightness of the display. The camera performs well in well-lit situations, but falls short in light photography.

Honor 8 Pro Hands-on and First Impressions [Quick Review]
Source: Mobygyaan English
Honor 8 Pro’s beautiful 5.7-inch 2K screen, slender design, and long-lasting battery runtimes (4,000 mAh) are enough to fascinate the people. Although the glass back on the Honor 8 is too good to forget, the metallic body and slim design on the Honor 8 Pro feels very premium and cannot be overlooked. The dual 12 MP camera, stuffed with a variety of modes, appears to be quite impressive and offers decent image quality.

90% Honor 8 Pro Review: A Strong Contender in the mid-range Segment
Source: Gadgetguy English
Honor has come a long way since its first smartphone launch. Priced aggressively at 29,999, it's going to compete in the upper midrange segment and will definitely pose tough competition to the recently-launched OnePlus 5. Some of the top features of the Honor 8 Pro include a 4,000mAh battery and a premium design, all of which come at an affordable price. If you won't mind looking at alternatives in the same price bracket, you can check out Samsung's Galaxy C9 Pro.

After spending a day with the smartphone it seems that the Honor 8 Pro is a step up for the Honor lineup. The Kirin 960 is currently Huawei’s top-of-the-line SoC and promises good processing power, and the 6GB of RAM will help with multitasking. We are also waiting to see how the Kirin 960 fares against the recently launched Snapdragon 835. Pricing will be crucial for the 8 Pro, as the OnePlus 5 is a serious competitor. Stay tuned to Gadgets 360 for our full review of the Honor 8 Pro.

Honor 8 Pro Review
Source: Fone Arena English
Honor essentially took the Honor 8 as a base, enlarged it and fixed some of the flaws and shortcomings to create the Honor 8 Pro. The Honor 8 itself is a great phone and the 8 Pro is even better. The lack of 4K recording, the slippery design, battery life and many other aspects have been addressed. The audio department could still use some improvement but nonetheless, it seems to offer more value for money than the Honor 8 did. However, that precisely was the problem of the Honor 8, at least in India where it was priced much higher than it should’ve been.

The Honor 8 Pro might not be quite as future-facing as 2017's latest flagships, but it's still a decent affordable phone. At this price point, given all the power and capability on board, it's a real alternative to consider over the OnePlus 3T should you not want to go and spend mega bucks on the priciest of handsets.

The Honor 8 Pro is an accomplished, well-rounded phone, but one that's just lacking that killer feature to take it from good into the realms of greatness. It’s easy on the eye, offers plenty of power and has a sizeable battery, but there’s nothing to get truly excited by.

The Honor 8 Pro takes off where the Honor 8 left, adding a larger display, a faster chipset, more memory, and a bigger battery, all in a very slim and elegant metal body. That being said, it doesn't differ all that much as a concept – it still offers a dual camera with depth of field tricks, very good battery life, and the same pretty, functional interface, all at a price that undercuts the direct competitors just enough for potential users to pay attention.

Honor is typically a company you’d associate with value focused handsets that sit firmly in the mid-range The Honor 8 was a major success, sporting sleek styling, good pricing and plenty of features. The company has now decided to release a ‘Pro’ version of that very device, which has it’s self set on being a flagship killer. Boasting top-tier specs and an attractive price-tag, can it tempt you to part with the Samsungs and Apples of the world?

Huawei Honor 8 Pro Review: things you need to know
Source: Androidcommunity.com English
So maybe you won’t have a FullVision screen or Infinity Display. You won’t have lenses coming from a famed camera maker. And you won’t have fancy features like a new smart assistant, two square screen side by side, or iris recognition. But at $590, you will get almost the best hardware and the best features. That makes the Honor 8 Pro the smartphone to beat this year.

Honor 8 Pro Review: Three days with the flagship Honor phone
Source: Recombu English
Although we’ve only spent three days with the Honor 8 Pro so far, we’re definitely impressed. This handset costs roughly £100 less than many other flagship smartphones, yet boasts pretty much the same features. In fact, we have to wonder why you’d bother buying the Huawei P10 Plus when you could save some cash and get more or less the same device here.

There's lots of things we've not had a chance to test properly, like the 4K video and whether it really will feel like new in six months time. But everything that we have tried suggests that this is another flagship killer from Honor, a mid-year substitution that is going to give the Honor 9, whenever that arrives, a lot to live up to. If you like a big screen phone, it comes highly recommended.

Huawei Honor 8 Pro Review
Source: Slashgear English
The Honor 8 Pro is definitely one of the unexpected surprises of the smartphone market this year. You would have never expected that Honor, whose smartphones so far have been on the far side of mid-range, would come so close to Huawei’s own flagship while still remaining within reach for many consumers. That translates to around 500 EUR, roughly $540, still well below the $700-800 tags on this year’s premium handsets.

My time with the Honor 8 Pro has been quite short, and I've yet to give it a full workout. What I can say is that it's well built and well specified, and also relatively affordable. As such, it's likely to give some of 2017's premium flagship handsets a good run for their money.

Comment

Model: Huawei released a variety of good smartphones both under its name and under the Honor brand. One of it is the Honor 8 Pro. Huawei delivers the Honor 8 Pro in a box that converts into a cardboard-style VR headset. The whole set is quite easy to assemble, but there are also directions if the user is struggling with the do-it-yourself part. The 8 Pro takes a lot of its design cues from last year's Honor 8 - which shouldn't come as a surprise, given the name. It features rounded corners, a gorgeous glass finish up front that catches the light, and slim dimensions. Around the back, though, the matching glass is gone. Instead, there is a brushed metal finish, again in an eye-catching blue hue. Metal probably makes it less prone to shattering which could be handy for rough users. The all-metal chassis feels firm, with no evidence of bend or flex when squeezed. It feels premium to the touch. At 6.93 mm, it is actually thinner than an iPhone 7 Plus. Huawei has a fingerprint sensor that the company implements on every new device. The scanner works splendidly for all the phone, app and payment security needed. The headphone jack, single speaker and USB-C port are all found on the bottom of the phone, keeping line breaks and distractions to a minimum at the top and sides.

The Honor 8 Pro’s dual camera has two 12 MP sensors, and it performs as good as the smaller sibling’s - the Honor 8. The difference that comes with being new and having a more powerful chipset is that the Pro device can record videos in 4K. The front snapper is 8 MP with f/2.0 lens for all the selfie enthusiasts. Huawei gives all it has to the Honor 8 Pro regarding performance. The chipset is the Kirin 960, which is the company’s most powerful SoC to date. It comes with an octa-core CPU and 6 GB of RAM, while the 64 GB storage is expandable via a microSD card that occupies the second SIM slot. This means the user can't have both dual SIM and extra memory. As for the display, a 5.7-inch screen leaves lots of room for pixels, and Honor has delivered the 8 Pro with a 2560 x 1440 resolution panel, the first one in a Honor phone. There's plenty of detail for photos and videos, with more than enough brightness to see what's on screen clearly when users are out enjoying the sun. For the operating system, inspired by the white and blue of the Aegean, the EMUI 5.1 delivers a bright, clean and seamless user experience, with 90 % of the phone features 3 clicks away at most. The Honor 8 Pro also constantly learns from the user’s behaviors and habits, meaning it will always be one step ahead. The Honor 8 Pro is pretty much a smartphone for those who don't want to spend the extra buck on a Huawei P9 or even a P10. In many ways it is better than the smaller sibling of the P10 - the P10 lite.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Honor:

In 2014 Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. Occasionally the products are also called Huawei Honor.

The market share of Honor products is manageable, but there are several reviews on Honor smartphones with average ratings (as of 2016).


84.36%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
