Honor 8 Unboxing! – Ultimate Pokemon Go/Instagram Phone?


Honor 8 may be the ultimate Pokemon Go/Instagram phone that offers premium build, killer camera, and excellent battery life.  For those of you looking for a phone with a size around 5.2-inches (size similar to Galaxy S7, S6, and HTC 10), the Honor 8 may just fit the bill.

Probably the feature I love most about this phone so far is the aperture mode that uses two cameras to capture the moment at the widest F0.95 which gives you more bokeh than any other smartphone on the market today.  For those of you who post photos on Instagram often, this may be just the phone for you as you can capture professional DSLR-like photos with shallow depth-of-field then post it directly to Instagram instantly.

Not only that, the Honor 8 includes world’s fastest fingerprint sensor along with integrated button that you can program to launch Pokemon Go or any of your favorite apps.  Battery life is the LONGEST that I’ve tried on a smartphone so far, it lasts longer than the Galaxy S7 Edge, which is current king of battery life.  I know for a fact that Pokemon Go players carry an extra USB power bank with them but with the Honor 8, you will be able to play Pokemon Go all day without having to re-charge.

At a price point of $399 for the starting 32GB model, Honor has packed in awful lot of features including fast Kirin 950 processor, 4GB of RAM, IR blaster, glass back and aluminum build, 2 back cameras, and microSD card slot.   This may be the best Android smartphone you can buy under $400.  For now, we do highly recommend the Honor 8, it does give you bang for your buck.

You can get Honor 8 here on Amazon.
