Huawei Honor 8 Pro Review

Huawei Honor 8 Pro Review

Just when you thought you've seen all the Android flagships that this half of 2017 has to offer, along comes Honor to blow your presumptions away. Many might brush off this Huawei sub-brand because it is, well, a sub-brand. That, however, would be a grave mistake with the Honor 8 Pro. Because as far as this latest Honor flagship is concerned, it could have been called the "Huawei P10 Plus Lite". Which is to say, it's pretty darned impressive. Especially for something that comes well under this year's high-end smartphone prices.

Huawei Honor 8 Pro, a.k.a. Honor V9, seen in Russia

Huawei Honor 8 Pro, a.k.a. Honor V9, seen in Russia

A rose by any other name, as the quote goes. Huawei sub-brand is not above using different names for the same phones that are available in different markets, whether to keep things exciting or confusing. Case in point is the Honor 8 Pro, which, by name, seems to take after the Honor 8 and Honor 8 Lite. But you won't be blamed if it looks and sounds familiar, because it is pretty much the same Honor V9 that was launched in China late last month.

Honor VR Camera is a custom-made Insta360 Air

It’s actually been a while since we’ve seen new equipment that tries to actually create VR-related content rather than just consuming them. Professional VR cameras still cost an arm and a leg and probably more, but there are always cheaper and more portable solutions around. Some of those come from Insta360, a company that specializes in smartphone-compatible 360-degree cameras. It has revealed that Huawei has chosen it to help create the Honor VR Camera for Android smartphones.

Honor V9 unveiled, Honor 8 Lite launches in China

While some companies are scrambling to get ready for one of the world’s biggest mobile industry events next week, others are trying to avoid the maddening rush instead. Huawei sub-brand Honor, for example, has just taken the covers off not one but two smartphones. The Honor 8 Lite, which was actually already revealed in Finland earlier this month, is now heading to China. The Honor V9, on the other hand, is a totally new and totally not mid-range smartphone that will hopefully also become available in other markets.

Huawei Honor 8, Sony Xperia Z5, Z3+, Z4 Tablet Android Nougat update released

Huawei Honor 8, Sony Xperia Z5, Z3+, Z4 Tablet Android Nougat update released

Just yesterday, Google updated its developer dashboard to indicate the spread of Android versions across the market. It inevitably revealed the rather snail-paced rollout of Android Nougat, be it 7.0 or 7.1.1, to devices. Seemingly making up for lost time, two manufacturers are kicking off the rollout of Android Nougat for devices, with a little twist. Sony is actually re-releasing its Nougat update to the Xperia Z5, Z3+ and Z4 Tablet, while the Honor 8 is getting the update via a shiny new EMUI 5.0.

Huawei Honor 8 Lite launched to take on premium sibling

Huawei Honor 8 Lite launched to take on premium sibling

It hasn't even been a year since Huawei sub-brand Honor launched the glass-toting Honor 8 in Europe and, later, in the US as well. Now, however, Honor is already giving it some competition. It has just launched the Honor 8 Lite in Finland and, as the name so clearly says, it's designed to be a mid-range alternative to the premium model. But given how little it deviates from the Honor 8, the Honor 8 Lite is pretty much a more affordable rival to Honor's own flagship.

Honor 6X Review: The $249 promise

Honor may be obsessed with Millennials, but most of us can appreciate an affordable smartphone that punches above its price, and that's just what the Honor 6X promises to be. Follow-up to the well-received 5X, the new Android handset gets a competitive $249.99 price tag, but can often be found closer to $200 with Huawei-owned Honor's periodic sales. With dual-cameras that sounds like a legitimate bargain, so does the overall experience live up to what Honor offers on paper?

This Honor Magic should’ve been Honor’s big CES 2017 launch

This Honor Magic should’ve been Honor’s big CES 2017 launch

Honor brought its Millennial-bait 6X to CES 2017 complete with a startlingly low price tag, but it hid its magic - literally - in the corner of a demo booth. The Honor Magic was announced for China some months ago, but had until now avoided American shores, despite no shortage of interest. It's undoubtedly the company's most interesting device right now.

Honor 6X hands-on: Bokeh on a budget

Joining the team on Huawei's offshoot is the new Honor 6X, originally announced in China back in October, but given its North American and European pricing at CES 2017 today.

Honor 6X targets Millennial photo-addicts on an Android budget

Honor 6X targets Millennial photo-addicts on an Android budget

Honor, Huawei's brand obsessed with Millennials and selling them smartphones, has brought its latest model at CES 2017, the Honor 6X. Boasting two cameras on the back, for a surprisingly broad aperture range of f/0.95 through to f/16 - albeit digitally aided - the Honor 6X could very well turn out to be a favorite of the shutterbug on a budget. As well as the dual lenses, there's phase detection autofocus for 0.3-second locks.

Huawei Honor 8 to get Android 7.0 Nougat via EMUI 5.0

The Honor 8, from Huawei’s sub-brand, might not be the super premium, not to mention super expensive, Huawei Mate 9, but that doesn’t mean it’s an underdog. In addition to flagship specs packed into a somewhat mid-range price, the Honor 8 has also been promised at least two years’ worth of software updates. Making good on its promise, Honor will be rolling out the smartphone’s first major update in two months. While EMUI 5.0, Huawei’s latest custom Android experience, is big news already for Huawei/Honor fans, even better news is the fact that it comes with Android 7.0 Nougat in tow.
