Huawei P8


The Huawei P8's octa-core processor, 3GB RAM and high-quality camera proves it's serious about going toe-to-toe with the big boys. The fact that it's considerably cheaper than the likes of the iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S6, or even the HTC One M9, makes...

Creative camera features ; High-end design ; Mid-range price ; Solid battery life ; Great screen

Some App crashing issues ; Minor performance lag

Huawei P8 review


Huawei's best ultra-premium Android phone yet

Ultra-reliable camera ; High-grade bodywork ; Cheaper than the competition

Variable battery stamina ; No fingerprint scanner, IR or WiFi ac ; Quirk-tastic software

Huawei's gaining on the smartphone big boys - the P8's not perfect, but at this price it's well worth a look

Huawei P8 review: Slighted by software


It's been a curious year for flagship smartphones so far: from the impressive highs of the Samsung Galaxy range revamp, with the company's S6 and S6 edge, to the oh-it's-the-same-again HTC One in its M9 form . Sitting in among them is Huawei, with its...

Affordable, majority of design is on point, tiny bezel design, microSD card expansion, camera is impressive

EMUI interface annoyances, battery life ought to be better, processor has heat and power consumption issues

Oh Huawei, so near yet oh so far. The P8 has glimmers of brilliance that are marred by sub-par software and, in some scenarios, processor and battery limitations due to heat dissipation. And when an outsider needs to impress right across the board to...

Huawei P8 review


A slick, svelte smartphone that tries to give the big boys a run for their money

Premium design ; Decent display ; Feature packed camera ; Attractive price

Emotion UI remains ; Slightly laggy performance

The Huawei P8 has all the right ingredients for a top smartphone, but something's not quite gone to plan in the baking stage. The lower price point certainly helps, but the mainstream flagships can rest easy.

Huawei P8 review


A brilliantly made phone, yet the P8 wasn't the flagship alternative we were hoping for

Beautifully made ; Decent camera

Weak battery life ; Emotion UI

We really want to like the P8, but Huawei's best efforts have failed to live up to expectations. It's a beautifully made phone, but battery life and usability pales in comparison to the current crop of competition from Samsung , HTC and LG . The P8 is...

Huawei P8 review


Can the Huawei P8 take on the Galaxy S6, HTC One M9 and iPhone 6?

The Huawei P8 has excellent design and build for a price lower than other flagship rivals. On the whole hardware is decent too, particularly in the photography department. However, poor performance and buggy software taint the experience to frustrating...

Huawei P8 review: Top-end performance without the price tag


The Huawei P8 packs a host of high-end tech into a slim, all-metal body and doesn't charge the Earth for it.

The Huawei P8 has a bright and bold screen, a sleek, all-metal body, plenty of power and a decent camera.

The camera quality suffers at full screen and Huawei's custom software makes drastic changes to the Android interface which won't appeal to everyone.

The Huawei P8 lacks some of the shine of its flagship phone rivals, but it still delivers an uncompromising mix of features and performance for a far cheaper price.

Huawei P8 Review: In Depth


Huawei's first 2015 flagship phone, the P8, is as frustrating as it is impressive, with a seriously good camera offset by software issues.

Strong camera ; Attractive design ; Decent battery life

Software 'funnies' ; No Quad HD screen

Huawei’s P8 is impressive in so many ways. The camera is one of the best around, almost hitting the dizzy heights of Samsung’s Galaxy S6 snapper, while the sleek design and decent battery life are also highlights. However, the myriad of software issues...
