The Honor 8 sports a 5.2" FHD display, up to 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, dual rear cameras, and HiSilicon's Kirin 950.

Roses are red. The dongle life sucks. You can get the Honor 8 for around 200 bucks.

The Honor 8 was launched just over a year ago to critical acclaim, with Huawei's attempt at providing flagship specifications and an exception build in the sub-US$500 price range proving to be largely successful. It was released in multiple variants, with a 3 GB of RAM variant and a 32 GB of storage being intended for markets outside the US.

You can get high-value deals of the various models today at some vendors online. At Amazon, you can get the variant with 32 GB of storage for US$259, and the 64 GB version for US$334.99, both of which are deals that save you over US$100 on regular prices. Both variants house 4 GB of RAM.

On Chinese website Aliexpress, you can get an even better deal. A better deal, anyway, if you're willing to trade an extra gigabyte of RAM for about US$25. The 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage versions—released for markets outside the US—sell for US$229.99. That's effectively a last-gen premium device for nigh-budget prices.

You'd do well to check the available LTE bands on the Aliexpress deal before purchasing, though, as there's a high chance it doesn't play nice with western LTE frequencies.

The Honor 8 sports a 5.2" FHD display, up to 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, dual rear cameras, and HiSilicon's Kirin 950.

We'll be sure to keep you informed on any similar deals in the future.
