Honor 8 Smart Description


Huawei is the underdog Chinese handset maker, which has been around for a long time and has not yet received its due. However, its online brand called Honor has been received very well around the world and the handset maker has been focusing on the same lately. This is evident from the fact that the flagship device of the brand also belongs to the Honor lineup. The handset maker has recently launched its newest device Honor 8 Smart in India and the thing is toned down version of previous flagship. Besides being absolutely gorgeous, it also comes with some serious specifications under the hood. Here is a brief overview of the device for those who are planning to buy a new mid-range handset.

Why Should You buy?

Premium design with 15-layer craftsmanship: If you have seen the all new Honor 8 Smart, we are certain that you must have been awestruck with the sheer beauty of its design. The handset maker claims that the glass panel on the front and rear has around 15 layers of glass for the eye catching finish. The combination of the 15-layer glass and metal makes it one of the most premium looking handset in the market.

3D Fingerprint: Like every other premium handset, Huawei Honor 8 Smart also comes with a rear mounted fingerprint scanner. According to the brand, this scanner can unlock the handset in mere 0.4 seconds. Moreover, Huawei has integrated auto-learning skills in the scanner of the handset, which improves the fingerprint recognition over time.

Why Should You Not buy?

Smudge magnet: Huawei Honor 8 Smart is the massive fingerprint and smudge magnet. There is no point having the most beautiful device in the budget segment of the market only to have it smudged and dirty all the time.

Bloatware: The specs and hardware of the handset is pretty bleeding edge and can deliver top notch performance as well as multitasking to the end user. However, the bloated user interface from the brand tend to bog down the experience a little.
