Honor 8 Pro vs Honor 8: Should I upgrade?

06 April, 2017

This is the most premium smartphone in the Honor brand, delivering flagship quality specs and a feature-packed dual-lens camera for under £400. The fingerprint scanner is positioned at the back, below the dual-tone LED flash. The two lenses work in tandem to always deliver the flawless shot: the monochrome lens captures a black-and-white image with incredible depth of detail while the RGB lens ensure faithful and vivid color reproduction - and sophisticated software brings the best of two worlds together.

The device also supports shooting of 4K videos, encoded in the efficient H.265 codec, which produces files twice as small as its predecessor.

4000 mAh battery life. Honor claims the battery can last 2 days with regular usage or 1.44 days with heavy usage. The Honor 8 Pro is a premium version of the Honor 8 smartphone, which released in July 2016 internationally and then in August 2016 for the U.S market. The new model in the line has seen a marked improvement in its specifications and aims to be a competitor to Sony's Xperia XZs and LG's G6. That's backed up by a whopping 6GB of RAM and 64GB of base storage, plus expansion via a hybrid slot, which can hold a second SIM or a microSD card. The smartphone also offers the processing might of the brand's latest Kirin 960 SoC combined with 6GB of RAM.

The device is running Android 7.0, which is the most up-to-date complete version of the Google-owned operating system. In essence, the feature is created to recognise that an app is being used at a certain time each day - for instance, opening Twitter in the morning - and ensuring the app is loaded in the background in anticipation. Alternatively, Amazon will have the handset for sale from April 20 onwards.

Honor today introduced its smartest device to date, the Honor 8 Pro.
