Honor 8 is latest smartphone from Huawei and it has premium specifications and features as listed below:
5.2 inches 1080p LTPS capacitive touchscreen display. LTPS(Low Temperature PolySilicon LCD) is an active matrix LCD screen which is faster and more integrated than screens made with amorphous silicon substrates. The larger and more uniform grains of polysilicon allow electrons to flow 100 times faster as compared to random-sized grains of amorphous silicon, enabling higher resolutions and higher speed. Thus, LTPS LCD pixels can be closer together and achieve densities of 200 dpi and greater. They are faster, denser and integrated as compared to other screens.
HiSilicon Kirin 950 chipset, octa-core CPU (4xCortex-A72 at 2.3GHz plus 4xCortex-A53 at 1.8GHz) and Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. Octacore CPU and GPU enable execution of complex applications and high end games with ease.
32/64GB internal memory and 4GB of RAM. Large RAM helps multitasking of applications.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Huawei EMUI v4.1.
Dual 12MP camera with hybrid AF, color and monochrome sensors, f/2.2 aperture and 1080@60fps video recording
8MP front camera, f/2.4 aperture, 1080p video recording and wide selfie feature.
Hybrid DualSIM/microSD card slot up to 128GB. Hybrid SIM Slot can function both as a SIM card slot and a microSD card slot. It allows either putting another SIM in a hybrid SIM slot or using your phone as a dual SIM smartphone or you can put a microSD card in it for expanding the memory of mobile phone. The Hybrid SIM slot can be a separate slot or can be present on a SIM card tray where the other normal SIM card slot is also present.
Connectivity with 6 LTE (300/50Mbps), dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi hotspot, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, and Type-C USB
3,000mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery with Rapid charging. Availability in Pearl White, Midnight Black, Sapphire Blue and Gold colours.
However, it has some disadvantages like non availability of 4K 2160p video recording, adequate screen protection, direct access to the monochrome sensor for B&W photos and Hybrid DualSIM/microSD card slot limits options on the dual-SIM model. The main disadvantage of hybrid SIM slot is limiting the phone functionality. Smartphone can be used as a dual SIM phone or it can expand the storage through microSD card. User cannot use both these features simultaneously which is a major disadvantage of hybrid SIM slot.
