Huawei’s rise as a dominant force in the world of smartphones is no such surprise. After Nokia fell off its perch after spending countless months on top of the cellphone food-chain, Samsung and Apple started their own dominant monopoly. Huawei introduced itself and made people realize that it was possible to provide excellent specs in fewer amounts of cash. Come the year 2016, Huawei has reached newer heights and it looks set to embark on its successful journey thanks to one of its latest prodigies, the Huawei Honor V8. One of its higher ranged smartphones; it’s still cheaper than many others whilst providing equally good specifications.
The Huawei Honor V8 has flagship style build quality. The smartphone is all metal at the back and a smooth glass lays carelessly on its front giving the Honor V8 a classy look.
The display size symbolizes the fact that the smartphone falls within phablet territory with a 5.7 inches IPS-NEO LCD capacitive touchscreen. The smartphone comes in two variants with different pixel densities with the so-called lower pixel density one carrying 386ppi whereas the other variant houses 515ppi. Whichever one you may purchase, the pixel densities look adequate to provide crisp a user interface.
The Honor V8 prolongs a growing trait among smartphones nowadays. We’re talking dual camera sensors. The two camera sensors work together to produce excellent photography that rivals DSLR quality. When talking about its camera pixels, the primary camera features a 12 dual-pixel sensor with f/2.2 aperture sized lens. The camera is further polished through the help of phase detection technology and dual-tone LED flash making for an all-round superior camera.
The secondary camera shelters an 8 megapixel sensor which does wonderfully well in complementing its more powerful primary counterpart.
As mentioned earlier, the smartphone comes in two variants both running on Android v6.0 Marshmallow. The first features 32gigs of internal storage, Quad-core 2.3 GHz Cortex-A72 + quad-core 1.8 GHz Cortex A53 processor and 4GB of RAM whereas the more powerful variant features 64GB internal storage, Quad-core 2.5 GHz Cortex-A72 + quad-core 1.8 GHz Cortex A53 and 4GB of RAM. Whichever variant you choose to buy, both are extraordinarily powerful to provide a smooth user experience.
