Huawei Honor 8: Should you buy one?

When it comes to buying a second hand phone, it isn’t easy to find the right phone for you. We have recently got the sleek Huawei Honor 8 in stock but is it the right phone for you?

This second hand phone is excellent for anyone who wants a trendy-looking device but who also doesn’t want to spend a considerable amount of money on a high-performance phone.

How does it look?

What you find on the back of this second hand Huawei is 15 layers of nano-etched glass which don’t show a clear reflection. Instead, it captures and diffuses the light, which highlights the colour of this phone. However, the back of this phone is slippery.

Although it sits well in your hand as it is only 46 x 71 x 7.45mm and weighs 153g. This allows you only to need to use one hand with this phone instead of two which you might need on the iPhone 11 Max. If you do want to risk cracking or scratching your phone, then this shouldn’t be a problem as the glass on the back of the phone is reasonably secure.

Touch Features

On the back of this phone, you will find one of the best fingerprint sensors that you’ll find on a smartphone. If you slide your finger down the end of the phone, it will lower the notification shade. If you double-tap or triple-tap it and it can do some custom shortcuts where you can set.

Some “knock” gestures also feature on this phone. With your knuckles you can draw a C to open the camera, E for opening Chrome, M to open the Notepad and W for the weather. You can also take a screenshot quickly by knocking on the screen twice with your knuckle. You are also able to knock with two knuckles to start and stop screen recording.

Battery Life

With this second hand smartphone, you can find that it has a huge battery capacity of 3,000mAh. It also has a lower-resolution display so less pixels is working at once. The 5.2-inch screen is the main reason why this phone has such excellent battery life. You will be able to get a day and a half out of this phone.

You will also find that this phone has a new battery manager that allows you to see how to get the most life out of your battery if you need it.
