Android version and market relevance

In August 2016 was announced smartphone Honor Note 8. It is located in the series Honor among many others smartphones Huawei.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Honor Note 8 works on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2016. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Honor Note 8, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Then we can make you happy, because Honor Note 8 works great with two SIM cards.

Screen, body and battery

The screen Honor Note 8 is made using the Super AMOLED technology and has a diagonal 6.6 inches. Such a very large main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 7.2 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 4 500 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

Let′s briefly describe the cameras in Honor Note 8. The main camera got 13 MP and it is not double, but usual with one module. If you want to buy smartphone with dual camera, then goto in our catalog.

Frontcamera on 5 MP. Do not say that this is very much, is in our catalog selfie smartphones, whose frontcamera will be an order of magnitude better.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Honor Note 8 is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Hisilicon Kirin 955. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 4 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSD up to 256 GB. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 32/64/128 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

Price for Honor Note 8: buy or not to buy?

Total, we have Honor Note 8 - a smartphone with a fast processor, a huge touch screen, with a very good main camera, and with a conventional front camera.

And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? This model received a very good battery with increased capacity.

Honor Note 8 will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
