Android version and market relevance

Honor V8 is smartphone of 2016, which was officially announced in May the world′s electronics manufacturer — the company Huawei. In addition, this smartphone supports the work of two SIM cards, here you are, and please, the first reason for buying this model (or any other dual-smartphone from the catalog).

In 2016 this new model works out of the box running the Android operating system 6.0 Marshmallow. But in the market of android-smartphones an important factor when buying a new device is the possibility of updating it to a fresh version of the OS. So Honor V8 has not received any software updates, which is very sad, so we advise you to look at other DROID-smartphones in our catalog.

Screen, body and battery

In the case Honor V8 thickness 7.8 mm is placed battery for 3 500 mAh and a large IPS-NEO LCD touchscreen with a diagonal 5.7″.

Main camera and selfie camera

The most important thing about cameras in smartphone Honor V8: main camera on 12 MP, frontcamera got 8 MP. See examples of photos and videos from this smartphone to visually assess their quality. And the most interesting thing is that the main camera on the back of the case is also double. It has a second module — a telephoto, which can zoom 2x without losing quality. And with the help of a dual camera, you can shoot portraits with the Bokeh effect, this is when the background is blurred and the picture appears to have depth.

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 V8 is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Hisilicon Kirin 950. Another manufacturer is releasing a version of this model with 8-core processor on the chipset Hisilicon Kirin 955. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 4 GB, but if this is not enough for you, then there is a version for 4 GB. You can choose the right version of the smartphone, but note that the price of these versions is different.

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 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

Price for Honor V8: buy or not to buy?

Price Honor V8 at the start of sales was $380. A smartphone with this price level got into the price segment “Middle class smartphones from $300 to $400” and got a very powerful processor, a large touch screen, and the front camera is not too cool with a very weak main camera.

If you want to buy Honor V8, you can choose any online store or offline electronics store, the main thing is to have a guarantee for the smartphone and the desired version of the model you have chosen.

Before buying, if you have the opportunity, it is better to hold the phone in your hands, check the screen, the quality of the photo and video, look at the smoothness and speed of the interface. Never buy a “cat in a bag”, be sure to check everything before buying. Today, good smartphones are worth a lot of money, so it′s better to spend an extra ten minutes to eventually buy the model that will work well one or two years and help you in everything.
