The battery in Honor 8 is installed on 3 000 mAh. It can be said that by today′s standards, such a volume is the minimum acceptable, we recommend looking at other smartphones with a powerful battery.

Main camera and selfie camera

Smartphone Honor 8 got dual main camera on 12 MP and the frontcamera on 8 MP. If you judge only by the number of megapixels, then the main camera is very weak. But the frontcamera not very good, we have in our catalog real selfie smartphones.

But the most interesting is the built-in memory of 32 GB and plus another option for 64 GB. Looking for memory cards? There is a special slot for card format microSD up to 256 GB.

Price for Honor 8: buy or not to buy?

Buy Honor 8 you can after the beginning of official sales, which start in  July 2016. And now the price from the manufacturer is known — it′s $400 without taxes and fees. The price-to-feature ratio of this smartphone is not bad, because there is a large screen, but a weak main camera, and the frontcamera is so-so.
