Huawei P8 Trusted Reviews: Huawei is continuing to upgrade its product with time and bring about perfection in its specifications so much that it has already attained one of the leading positions in the world of electronic gadgets and is among one of the leading global smartphone vendors. Huawei had officially launched its flagship model Huawei Ascend P8 in April last year; that is 2015, and this smartphone is still quite popular among the smartphone lovers all because of its excellent specifications and feature-rich design.
Huawei P8 was first unveiled in April, last year when it had one of the best specifications that were hardly available in the market and yet the features do not seem to be so outdated. The Huawei P8 was launched with its two other siblings- P8max and P8lite. These devices are all doing well in earning profits for the company even now, a year later. Since the phone was of a flagship standard, Huawei P8 still has some superb specifications that we are going to discuss in detail further
Huawei P8 Trusted Reviews: Best Premium Smart Phone in Mid-range
Design and Look: Huawei P8 features a 5.2 inches IPS-NEO LCD capacitive touchscreen with FULL HD display with a 78.3 percent screen to body ratio. The elegant dark screen with the protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 occupying a huge chunk of space on the front looks marvelous and gives it a classy look. The edges are elegant, and the right one carries a power button and a volume button.
The phone has a dual-SIM facility but the second SIM card slot also facilitates the memory expansion by allowing to place in it a micro-SD card. So it means that you have to choose between a second SIM and a micro-SD card and since the internal memory of the phone is limited to 16GB so you probably have to opt for an extended memory which will leave the dual-SIM functionality useless.
Touch and Display: This phone features a 5.2 inches display with a thin bezel along the edges. The screen size is bigger than that of Galaxy S6 but it is not a Quad HD like the S6, and Huawei P8’s display can be considered as one of the finest FULL HD screens we’ve seen in a phone. The screen resolution is 1080×1920 pixels with 424ppi pixel density. Huawei’s display is skinned with Emotion UI that helps in adjusting the display’s color temperature. Normally, this flagship phone is next to perfect with a vibrant and bright display but is naturally biased towards warmer tones. However, the display options in settings allow you to adjust its more cordial tone and give you a pleasant experience in all lighting conditions.
Software and Hardware: The Huawei P8 runs on Android 5.0 with the company’s Emotion 3.1 UI layered on its top, which particularly works away of the app drawer; instead it places all its icons on the home screen which seems to look a bit congested. However, the UI does a splendid job in maintaining the display’s color temperature. The company has planned to upgrade its OS to the latest Marshmallow. The phone is powered by Hi-Silicon Kirin 930/935 with four of its cores clocked at a speed of 2.0GHz and the other four cores work at a rate of 1.5GHz.
Now, coming to its storage capacity, the phone has two variants- one with 16GB of inbuilt and the other one with 64GB of inbuilt storage but both the phones are featured with 3GB of RAM. The internal memory of 16GB is quite limited in today’s world, and the Huawei customers might miss the 32GB version. Nevertheless, you can apply a micro-SD card for memory expansion up to 128GB. The graphics are loaded with a GPU of Mali-T628 MP4.
Camera: Now coming on to its camera features, Huawei has improved a lot in delivering detailed images. The company claims that there have been some software based improvements since the previous P7, and the enhancement is mostly visible in its camera features and picture quality. The primary camera of this phone is of 13-megapixel with an aperture of f/2.0 which helps deliver bright photos.
The rear camera comes with an autofocus and dual-LED flash. The 1.12µm pixel sized rear camera supports are Geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection. It can also record videos at 1080p and 30fps strength. The front camera is of 8megapixel with an aperture of f/2.4. The front camera delivers beautiful selfies that are bright and lively. The camera specifications are exquisite and help you capture sharper images with detailed finish.
Battery Life: This Huawei smartphone has a non-removable Li-Po2680mAh battery which turns out to be a major limitation of this phone. It does not support fast charging facility, and the battery seems to drain out a little earlier than what we expect from a flagship. Though the phone supports a good amount of voice call, internet browsing, and gaming, the screen size, and the octa-core processor seem to drain out its battery life a little earlier. The company could have provided a better battery-life in this flagship-priced smartphone. Nevertheless, the battery life can also not be termed as bad, it stands somewhere around the mid-line.
Variants and Price: The phone comes in four different colors. The 16GB variant comes in two colors- Titanium Grey and Mystic Champagne and the 64GB version can be encountered in other two colors- Carbon Black and Prestige Gold. The price of the 64GB version is around Rs.33,299, yet you can expect some offers from some online stores.
Suggestions: According to the tech-experts and the user reviews this phone can be termed as good. Looking at the Huawei’s craftsmanship in providing the elegant design in this phone and the neatly detailed features, Huawei P8 is certainly a good phone. This smartphone can give you an enjoyable Android experience if you are an Android purist, even the display of this phone seems to be perfect with its Emotion UI layered on its top.
The rear camera seems to be remarkable providing excellent picture quality and the front camera too is facilitated with an 8-megapixel sensor to provide exceedingly detailed and sharper selfies. But the battery life of this phone seems to disappoint its users to some extent and even the graphics are not so updated one. Though this phone has good features, there are several other smartphones in the market now with latest technological features. Nonetheless, going by its looks and features this phone turns out to have an average rating but tends to be priced a little more than other phones in the same category.
