The Honor 8 Pro showcase a 5.7-inch display that is protected Corning Gorilla Glass 3 panel and the display have a pixel density of 515 PPI Pixel Density. The display produces colors that are slightly saturated here and there, yet the bright colours produced by the smartphone will live up to the expectation of many.

Processor: Should have been better
When it comes to processors, there are only a few players that make their own SoC and Huawei is one of them. The Honor 8 Pro is powered by Kirin 960 processor which clocks at 1.8GHz octa-core and is backed by a 6GB of RAM.

Event though Kirin 960 processor is a good processor that amounts to all the multi-tasking abilities and speed, this processor seems comes little short for Honor 8 pro as almost all the competitors have a more upgraded processor in the same price tag, and this is a huge letdown.

OS and Internal Storage: Up to the mark

The phone uses a hybrid SIM slot, which takes the space of a second SIM, for some users it won't be a problem but for many, it is an inconvenience. Huawei could have made a dedicated memory card slot for this smartphone.

In the Software section, Honor 8 Pro runs on Android 7.0 on top of Emotion UI 5.1, which is a customization skin made by Huawei itself for making the smartphone a little more friendly for the users. A 4000mAh non-removable battery is cast into the smartphone that makes sure that makes sure the smartphone have enough juices to last until the end of the day.

Camera: Decently packed
Huawei made two 12-megapixel primary cameras on the rear, with the one camera shoots color and other in black and white, which is similar to the camera module of the Huawei P10. Colo and an 8-megapixel front shooter for the Honor 8 Pro.

The Primary camera comes with more higher contrast and saturation and takes bright pictures that could be shared instantly to social media and Instagram without many touch-ups. However, the camera module reproduces a more contrast image that may look unnatural and only comes close in quality with that of the Galaxy S8. But, the 8-megapixel camera on the front does a great job of capturing selfies with natural colors and have enough resolution to make selfies stand out added with a beauty mode that smoothens out and brightens skin, to make selfies stand out.

The smartphone showcases a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. 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.

The smartphone will be available in Navy Blue and Midnight Black color choices in India.

Huawei has always made smartphones with exceptional build quality and spectacular design queues. The dual cameras are the main attraction of the smartphones made by the companies and this can be seen from mid-ranges smartphones like the Honor 6X itself and the dual camera showcased on the Honor 8 Pro is am extension of that, but with a more quality camera that hold horns with many other competitors in the market, like the OnePlus 5 and the Galaxy S8. With the price being made very attractive, Honor 8 Pro is a sure buy with all the features and premium class looks it provides.
