Reviews for the Honor 8S

Honor 8S Review: Well-Deserved Makeover
Source: Unbox English
While budget phones at the sub-Php 6k are often overlooked at, the Honor 8S’ improvements over its predecessor prove that there are things to like about Honor’s 2019 budget offering. Things like a power-efficient processor and a trendy back panel design are much appreciated, though Honor can still improve the Honor 8S, especially with the camera UI.

Honor 8s Review
Source: Yugatech English
To summarize, the Honor 8s is a decent entry-level smartphone that has a refreshing design, slim form factor, light mass, long battery life for its capacity, and bright display. If you are not fond of big screens, this one may be the right device for you. Although, its performance doesn’t stand out among its competitors like the Realme C2 and Nokia 2.2.

Honor 8S Unboxing, Quick Review: Budget Phone, Trendy Design
Source: Unbox English
Honor follows up last year’s entry-level Honor 7S with the Honor 8S. Bearing the same SRP as its predecessor, Honor made several internal and external updates with the Honor 8S that include a trendier waterdrop notch, dual-textured polycarbonate back, and a newer processor.

Honor 8S Review

Honor 8S is low end smartphone and comes with in-box gifts such as Earphones & Cover. It has DewDrop Display, Face Unlocking Feature and at this price of range, that’s just remarkable. If you are looking for an average device under 20k then Honor 8S is a very good choice.

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).


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
