Honor 8 Pro


Honor is a sub-brand of Chinese company Huawei normally known for cheaper mid-range phones, but the Honor 8 Pro is the brand's priciest phone yet. It's also Honor's most accomplished thanks to an attractive, slim design, fast performance and a...

Honor 8 Pro review: Flagship that's no money pit


If you're looking for a big-screen phone that's long-lasting and powerful, but which won't destroy your bank account, the Honor 8 Pro is well worth

5.7-inch Quad HD display ; Strong battery performance with QuickCharge ; Slender design (sub-7mm) ; Navy blue finish looks great ; Dual cameras fun

Feels wide in the new world of tall phones ; EMUI can be heavy-handed and not the prettiest ; Where’s the gloss back gone?

The Honor 8 Pro might not be quite as future-facing as 2017's latest flagships, but it's still a decent affordable phone. At this price point, given all the power and capability on board, it's a real alternative to consider over the

High-end flash for half the usual cash

Quality screen, design and hardware for your cash ; Dual cameras punch above their weight ; Battery life is great

EMUI very different from vanilla Android ; Honor 8's glass back gone in favour of boring metal

It's got power, great cameras and a high quality display, all wrapped up in a good-looking handset that doesn't cost a fortune. You'll have to think very carefully before spending more money on a phone.

Honor 8 Pro review


Big and powerful but not quite perfect

Stunning, high-end design ; Beautiful, rich display ; Oodles of power

Camera lacking OIS ; A touch too big for one-handed use ; No waterproofing

The Honor 8 Pro is an accomplished, well-rounded phone, but one that's just lacking that killer feature to take it from good into the realms of greatness. It’s easy on the eye, offers plenty of power and has a sizeable battery, but there’s nothing to...

Honor 8 Pro review: Honor’s big smartphone bargain now with Android 8.0 Oreo


If you're in search of a big-screened smartphone, the Honor 8 Pro is quite simply one of the best money can buy

Price ; Design and build quality ; Performance

Camera flash performance

Still, the Honor 8 Pro is nothing short of amazing at this price, and if you’re looking to buy a large, phablet-sized smartphone for less than £500, the Honor 8 Pro should be one of your first choices.

Huawei Honor 8 Pro review


The Huawei Honor 8 Pro brings you much of the power and capabilities you'd expect of a high-end flagship phone, but with a UK price of £474 ( direct from Huawei ), it comes in cheaper than most other premium handsets. That converts to roughly $610 or...

The Huawei Honor 8 Pro packs a neat dual-lens camera, a great screen and plenty of power.

Battery life is disappointing and no waterproofing means that you'll need to be extra careful when using your phone around clumsy friends holding drinks.

The Huawei Honor 8 Pro's great specs and affordable price make it a worthy option if you want high-end features without emptying your bank account.

Honor 8 Pro review


The Honor 8 Pro is a hardware upgrade from last year's Honor 8. But what's different, why does it cost more, and is it up for competing with the bigger brands?

After a good stint with the Honor 8 Pro, it remains a promising device. It represents the brand moving even closer in look and price to big bro Huawei, but it is a decent option.

Honor 8 Pro Review: In Depth


Honor 8 Pro review: This premium, super-sized Honor phone is a serious OnePlus 3T rival

Great value ; Gorgeous screen ; Slick performance ; Feature-packed

Seriously big ; Camera has flaws

The Honor 8 Pro might be the most expensive Honor handset around, but it still costs roughly £100 less than many other flagship smartphones. Despite that, you can expect pretty much the same features to be packed in. That includes a feature-stuffed...

Honor 8 Pro


Even in the latest generation of flagship smartphones, octa-core chipsets with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage aren't common. Yet the Honor 8 Pro gives exactly this, and much more besides.
