Battery is quite decent in this phone.
GSMarena review is kinda not fair. From 8:00 till 13:52 it got only 4% drop using dual sim. Previous phone Nexus 4 couldn't last one day....now it's from 1.4 till 2 days depends on the usage.
Of course this is subjective but all reviews except gsmarena says honor8 stands out when it comes to the battery life...
I can recommend h8 because it has:
* perfect size and weight (I'm fan of 5.2" screen size)
* befaultifull 2.5 glass screen with vibrant colors
* pleasant software (have very positive feeling about emui)
* good battery life
* dual sim
* very decent camera setup
* quick charging
* nice look (although overrated: it's nice but not fabulous)
* very very slippery almost lubricious
* lack of screen protection
* fingerprints are very visible and appear everywhere
Apart from everything it is very stable machine with strong antenna signals. No hardware and software glitches so far which I appreciate overall (I'm watching at you one plus...)
So I'm happy with the choice and would buy it again....
sura, 15 Sep 2016Honor 8But what is the reason for honor 8? Well to be honest, the main reason why my alternative choice is Mi 5 because it got sd 820 man... Ugh...

saqi, 10 Sep 2016is huawei honor 8 have corning gorrila glass?Unfortunately not. This is where they cut expenses. The honor support claims the screen is protected with NEG (nippon electric glass), hehe. Looking forward to a scratch test on youtube but don't expect gorilla glass protection lvl.
Go for p9 or cheaper xiaomi mi5 for decent scratch protection.
DamiDev, 12 Sep 2016Why ? Because 4k Video is useless if you are watching it from phone's screen. There won't any difference between FHD and 4k. Also most people does not have 4k TVs.

Aakaash77, 05 Sep 2016plz friends suggest me... what should I buy, Honor 8 or OnePlus 3 or P9?i compared these 3 phones as well. After filtered through everything, i chose Honor 8.
BBB, 08 Sep 2016even 6gb ram of one plus3 is sluggish and after opening several apps it dosent keep apps runni... moreare you kidding me? have you checked benchmark test of one plus 3? look, I'm a honor 5x user, i know how sluggish EMUI is. Oxygen OS is faster and is like AOSP ROM, one thing one plus 3 has to do is lower it's price.
