Mobile phones have come a long way in the last three to four years. From being a mere gadget to make and receive calls and messages, they have gradually become one stop gadget to address all our digital and multimedia requirements.
And when something holds such an important place in our everyday life, then why not get ourselves the best one in the lot.
Having said that, Honor 8 is the handset that truly justifies the modern smartphone moniker. It is designed to address the needs of young tech enthusiasts who don't want to compromise when it comes to sheer performance.
But how does Honor 8 makes that possible? Let's find out.
Designed to Impress
A smartphone is one of our most prized possession and also serves as an extension to our personality. You should feel assured while carrying the handset in your pocket and at the same time should have enough confidence to flaunt it anywhere anytime.
That said, Honor 8 is one of those few handsets that exactly serves the purpose. It's premium, slick body with finished aluminum alloy frame sandwiched between two sheets of heavy 2.5D curved glass is more than enough to turn heads.
What makes Honor 8 simply a piece of art is the 15-layer light-catching glass finish at the rear panel, which is industry's first and makes Honor 8 stand out from the crowd.
Besides, the aluminum alloy gives Honor 8 a stronger body and the curved glass with ultra-narrow bezels offers a smooth, seamless feeling while you operate the handset. The smartphone is available in Pearl White and Sapphire Blue colour variants.
And even though Honor 8 boasts a metal-glass design, it only weighs 153g and feels very light in everyday usage. The smartphone is also compact enough to use with one hand.
Best-in class innovative Dual-Lens Camera Setup
One of the first thing we look for while buying a smartphone is its camera performance. Because no one likes to compromise when it comes to their profile pictures on social networking accounts. That said, Honor 8 is your best bet in the market in terms of camera performance as it packs in an innovative dual-lens camera setup that gives it an edge over its competitors.
The smartphone has a six-lens, wide-angle dual-lens camera setup at back that uses two 12MP Sony IMX286 sensors with f/2.2 apertures and 1.25 µm pixel sizes. One of them is a traditional RGB sensor that captures color information, while the second is a monochrome sensor that measures brightness.
Post taking a shot, the Honor 8's software combines the two images into a single image, resulting better pictures even in low-light conditions. The dual-lens results in high-quality photos while shooting in different light conditions or taking different kind of shots like macro images, landscape shots, portrait images, etc. You also get hybrid auto-focus and laser focus to ensure you never miss a precious moment.
Crisp 5.2-inch 1080p Display
In addition to a noteworthy design and innovative camera, Honor 8 also packs in a crisp 5.2-inch IPS display. The full HD resolution (1080x1920 pixels) offers an impressive pixel count of 423 ppi that results in super crisp text, images, videos, and games. The content looks sharp and colours look exceptionally vivid on the 5.2-inch screen. Besides, the touch response is also best-in-class.
Lag-Free Multitasking and top-notch processing
The young and care-free generation of India also understands technology very well and needs a handset that does not compromise on performance.
Honor 8 is loaded with high end Octa-core Kirin 950 processor that runs everything without breaking a sweat and also has massive 4GB RAM that allows you to run more than 30 applications at a time without any performance slow-down.
You can browse multiple web pages, play games, record or watch videos without worrying about the handset slowing down.
