I am using this device for these 2 weeks and my opinion is 10/10. You should go for it 😃
Hello guys it's time for me to upgrade and this time want to stick to android so thought of giving a try to honor 8 pro. As the price and specs are similar to oppo f3 plus and vivo v5 plus which is a better buy also if someone can help me with customer service feedback on honor brand. Thank you
Would I get lte band 12/17 with this device? Looking to upgrade from my MXPE
Can u confirm on the heating issue, as i hv used it for around 10 minutes and can feel considerable heat ( using wifi only ).
Have an idea to go for this as i know the quality of Honor and a earlier user of Honor 8. So your suggestions and confirmation can help others.
GOOD NEWS for HUWAEI HONOR BRAND FANS:
#1. Huawei received the Best Consumer Smartphone award for the Honor 8 Pro, for its looks, VR capabilities and powerful battery.
#2. The Huawei P10 was awardedBest Smartphone camera for its Leica-branded module and its portrait mode.
#3. The Huawei Watch 2 was honored as well, receiving the award for Best Wearable Device, for its ability to look good both at the office and at the gym.
PS: Huwaei is the world's no. 3 smartphone company comes after Samsung and Apple respectively. Huwaei's main motive is to dethrone both Samsung and Apple in coming few years by providing customers their value for money phones.
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2017Depends on your budget. At 30k Honor 8 pro is best at 33k Op5 is best. If you have 3k more it'... moreWhy you are so biased on your every reviews? Have you forgotten that H8Pro has enormous internal storage of 105 GB and One plus 5 has only 64 GB of internal storage with no expandable storage whereas H8Pro has it?
Why are you downplaying Honor 8 pro? You don't like it i know but don't force others not to like it. okay? Just give fair reviews.... please! No more Bullshit.
Maverick, 14 Aug 2017I am still confused which phone to buy. Honor 8 pro or One + 5...... i have seen mixed review... moreI have HONOR 8 PRO their is no any heating issue go for it , I am very happy with H8pro.,....

Maverick, 14 Aug 2017I am still confused which phone to buy. Honor 8 pro or One + 5...... i have seen mixed review... moreDepends on your budget. At 30k Honor 8 pro is best at 33k Op5 is best. If you have 3k more it's much better to buy Op5. You will get latest processor, latest ram, fastest internal storage, fastest charging, 4k eis, front cam eis, Bluetooth 5.0, fastest update for atleast next op device. In Honor 8 pro you will only get 2k screen, and may be better camera that's it. Look at Amazon reviews it has 16nm processor so heating is there, slower ram and slower internal storage, no 4k and front cam eis and Bluetooth 4.2. Honor just did a scam too, it has given all the reviewers ufs2.1 storage equipped device and faked all the benchmark ultimately you will get emmc5.1 storage. So choice is yours.
I am still confused which phone to buy. Honor 8 pro or One + 5......
i have seen mixed reviews....
someone mentioned that heating issue has been resolved after updates..... is it true..
If some one can through some light on it....
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2017Guys... Does this have ddr3 Or ddr4 Or ddr4x ? And What Kind Of storage does it have ? ... moreIf you care that much about specs, don't buy this phone. Honor did a scam. This has old and slow emmc 5.1 storage, with old and slow ddr4 ram. And old Bluetooth 4.2, and old Corning Gorilla glass 3. It has a old 16 NM processor with much weaker gpu and it heats very quickly. No eis on 4k video, no eis on front cam. Only good thing is 2k screen but that consumes too much battery so 4000mah is useless. It has 5.7 inch screen with on screen buttons so you will have effective 5.5 inch screen. No double tap to wake with fingerprint in the rear, so you will have to pick up the phone every single time to check anything. Plus slow charging. 2hrs 10 min to full charge being switch off. It's cheap for a reason. Still it's understandable but what Honor did, giving media people ufs 2.1 storage 8 pro was beyond rational thinking. All the YouTube speed test and how fast the phone is actually complete bullshit. Never ever buy Honor phones.
Does this have ddr3 Or ddr4 Or ddr4x ?
And What Kind Of storage does it have ?
How can i check above mentioned hardware in my phone ?
AnonD-691375, 11 Aug 2017Your Review, Clearly shows who is Biased. OP5 is no doubt a great phone but it is not better ... moreHonor 8 pro is that great yeah? Honor gave all the reviewers ufs 2.1 storage 8 pro and emmc 5.1 in all retail devices? Why so? It's a pure scam of Honor and all the paid reviewer are not even ready to address it. Forget those speeetest of youtube, in real life it's no where near to OnePlus 5. Honor 8 pro heats much faster as per 90% reviews on Amazon, not all can be wrong. It's much slower to charge almost 2hrs to 2hrs 10min. It has no double tap to wake and rear fingerprint so every time you will have to pick it up. It has no eis at 4k recording, no front cam eis, no Bluetooth 5.0, no Corning Gorilla glass 5, no ufs 2.1 storage, not so fast charging, not so fast updates, not so powerful gpu. It's cheap for a reason. I am by no means a OnePlus fan, but completely scammed this time. It would have been a great phone for the price but people are being conned. Those who have no budget constraints please buy OnePlus 5, if you are low on budget then consider 8 pro, even better don't trust a con company. Earlier Huawei fooled everyone using DSLR pic advertised as one of their phones camera sample pic.
Got new update...installing today....honor 8 one of the best android phone..using since july mid...zero issues...
Jay, 12 Aug 2017Yeah I attend the meeting in Chennai we talked everything for H8Pis any 4K eis update coming?
Jagmail Bathinda , 12 Aug 2017Nice review sir I have plans next month and I decided after your review Yeah I attend the meeting in Chennai we talked everything for H8P
AnonD-1097, 09 Aug 2017Guys good news new update has arrived for honor 8 pro... check your devicesWe didn't get the phone yet n Pakistan
Abhi D, 22 Jul 2017Don't believe everything that is being claimed in here...
Some overjealous Huwaei/honor fans... moreYour Review, Clearly shows who is Biased.
OP5 is no doubt a great phone but it is not better than H8P. I have both and using it from more than 15 days.
Battery: H8P gives me 7h15m of SOT and OP5 comes to 6H. Even with its 2K display if this phone gives this battery backup then its awesome. FYI I am a heavy user.
Display: H8P wins this round hands down. Whatever you mentioned about Amoled display does not stand a chance against such high quality display check 1440p videos on H8P you will then understand.
Charging: OP5 wins this round. H8P takes 1h50m to charge but OP5 is the best in the industry atm.
Camera: OP5 is hit/miss when it comes to bokeh effect. H8P is great in bokeh effect and also has an awesome monochrome mode which is amazing. Both support 4k videos with EIS so its a tie because where OP5 lacks it makes up with its better selfie shooter.
Pricing: Expandable storage option with 128gb in 30k with 6gb ram compared to 33k for OP5 with 64gb and non-expandable storage also makes H8P a winner
Heating Issue: I have tested it on both devices by playing games like Asphalt 8 and taking 4K video. H8P shows temp of 40 degrees and OP5 as 39 degrees. After the update which I got for H8P I got it coming down to 38 degrees. So both devices are same here.
Only issues which people claimed it had Heating (all smartphones heat up so it is not an issue) and Jio calling issue has been fixed in the new update.
Another awesome thing which happened is Huawei had seminars for their users in Chennai recently and next they are planning to have it in Bangalore. In this forum you can discuss give ideas, suggestions and also understand whether those ideas can be implemented in future updates. You can interact with the devs check XDA to find out about the entire questionnaire and the new things suggested for the device where they agreed to implement them.
Android O is promised till end of this year for H8P. Huawei is serious with this device unlike other companies who promise updates and then give it after a year.. Example: OP with OP2.
