Huawei Honor 8 Pro has long hours of battery considering a flagship smartphone

Huawei Honor 8 Pro is a flagship smartphone launched by the Chinese smartphone company Huawei. Despite its global muscle, Huawei has been considered an underdog smartphone brand in India. Although it enjoys massive popularity in China and Europe, the brand is yet to form a popular choice in the crowded Indian smartphone market. Surprisingly, its phones have been incredibly powerful, but they have fallen short compared to other flagships.

Huawei Honor 8 ProHonor 8 came out as a powerful smart device. The Huawei Honor 8 Pro, however, is an exception. Like many smartphones, it features a dual camera, which is quickly becoming a standard. However, the Honor 8 Pro is much more than a pair of a dual rear camera.
The Huawei Honor 8 Pro runs Android 7.0 and is powered by a 4000mAh non-removable battery which is one of the longest battery life ever seen on a flagship smartphone. It measures 157.00 x 77.50 x 6.97 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 184.00 grams.

Most smartphones these days look and feel the same, and the Honor 8 Pro is no different. But you won’t find the 2.5D glass coating both on the front and back of the phone, as seen on the Honor 8. Instead, it has a metal back, with an attractively brushed effect. Honestly, I’d have preferred the Honor 8-like glass back because it gives a distinct feel.

From a practical point of view, the metal design attracts fewer fingerprints, which means you don’t necessarily need a case to protect the phone. The phone has smooth rounded curved corners that are easy to grip. Though at 184 grams with a 5.7-inch screen, it might seem heavy at first, well it’s not.

The Huawei Honor 8 Pro stands out for its thin bezels. The bottom of the front edge holds the mono speakers, the USB Type-C connector, a microphone and the headphone jack. The upper side of the screen has an 8-megapixel front-camera. The power button and the volume keys are placed on the right side, while a dual SIM slot that doubles-up as a microSD slot for storage expansion lies to the side edge on the left-hand side.

The back of the phone has the antenna lines running through the top and bottom of the rear. The dual cameras and the flash reside at the top, while the Honor branding is placed right in the lower side of the phone. There’s a fingerprint scanner as well on the rear, which continues to be accurate and able to unlock the phone in seconds.

Huawei launched the Honor 8 Pro in India, almost three months after its international launch. Honor 8 Pro price in India Rs 29,999. Its connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM, 3G, and 4G. Sensors on the phone include a Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor and Gyroscope.
