Smartphone makers, Huawei has added a smartphone to their long list of devices and this one’s coming under the Honor brand. The most recent device under the Honor brand was the Honor 8 smartphone which we reviewed, and guess who’s next on this line – its the Honor 8 Pro.
Now, normally, we would expect there to be an increase in specifications, expecting the Huawei Honor 8 Pro to be an upgrade to the Honor 8 smartphone, but then, all we can do is just wait a few minutes more to see what exactly the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device holds for us.
PRICE OF THE HUAWEI HONOR 8 PRO SMARTPHONE
First off on the price of the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device, which is a determinant of many things that even the Huawei Honor 8 Pro specifications might not decide. Let’s review the price of the Huawei Honor 8 Pro.
The price of the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device in Nigeria is N178,425.
The Price of the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device in Ghana is 2465 cedis.
The price of the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device in Kenya is Ksh 60,483.
The price of the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device in Europe is 549 Euros.
Well, we do understand that the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device could pass off to be called a high end phone, so we need not be alarmed by its price. The price of the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device quoted above can be said to be fair, especially when all other specifications are critically looked at. It might be worth it after all. But again, we would surely appreciate if Huawei had quoted a lesser price for the Huawei Honor 8 Pro, who wouldn’t?
DISPLAY OF THE HUAWEI HONOR 8 PRO DEVICE
The Huawei Honor 8 Pro device measures a 5.7 inches display which has already at first sight (listen), made me fall in love with the device. But again, they should have just closed the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device display at 6.0 inches.
However, with this display size, the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device will be a surest bet for game lovers and movie addicts, or any other activity that requires a big display for maximum satisfaction. The display of the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device is definitely on point with a resolution of 1440 * 2560 pixels. Quite huge, to be candid.
HUAWEI HONOR 8 PRO SMARTPHONE DESIGN
We might want to take measurements first as the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device measures 157 mm in length, 77.5 mm in breadth and 7 mm in thickness, while the device weighs 184g. It could be said to be a heavy device but then, its big display and screen should also be put into consideration here.
The Huawei Honor 8 Pro device is built with a Metal Unibody Design while it comes in different color variants too which includes the Pearl White, Midnight Black & Navy Blue colors. Upon staring at the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device, all I can hear it scream is beauty.
There is a fingerprint sensor at the rear of the smartphone for biometric verification on the phone, and an infrared sensor is present at the front for uses like remote control.
RAM, AND INTERNAL STORAGE OF THE HUAWEI HONOR 8 PRO DEVICE
On the RAM, the Huawei Honor 8 Pro has in it a 6 GB RAM, which is a very huge one as multitasking with the device would surely be a walkover and interesting experience for users. So, just like its display, the Huawei Honor 8 Pro in the RAM aspect is EXCELLENT.
For your storage of music, videos, documents, apps, and many other files, the Huawei Honor 8 Pro has provided for you an internal memory of 64 GB. Sometimes, with 64 GB, you might have no need for an external storage but then, the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device is different. The 64 GB internal memory can be expanded to the tune of 256 GB with the use of an external micro SD card. Another huge one, again.
OPERATING SYSTEM AND PROCESSOR OF THE HUAWEI HONOR 8 PRO
The Honor 8 Pro is powered by Huawei’s flagship Kirin 960 processor with eight cores and a clock speed of 2.4GHz. Its graphics operations are handled by an octa-core Mali G71 GPU.
Running on an Android OS, v7.0 (Nougat), the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device must have been suited to save its battery.
HUAWEI HONOR 8 PRO DEVICE CAMERA
So coming down to the selfie lovers, the Huawei Honor 8 Pro device features a camera quality of 12 MP on its rear, while it has an 8 MP camera on its front. Don’t also forget that I am still clamoring for equality of the rear and front cameras.
The rear cameras can be used to record videos in 4K resolution.
HUAWEI HONOR 8 PRO SMARTPHONE BATTERY
With a battery capacity of 4000 mAh, the Huawei Honor 8 Pro is guaranteed for a full day’s usage. And after this, charging the device back is very fast. All thanks to the fast charging feature on the Huawei Honor 8 Pro.
