Huawei P8 Review- A High Configuration China Phone
Huawei is more and more popular recently,On the basis of the original P series added something personal, this is the first time try to use the function of speech aroused the P8. Huawei P8 is so good, today, I will introduce some details about this phone.
The metal case and the slim profile carry across a distinctly premium feel. The P8 is quite an impressive package but also is its price, especially on international markets.
As usual, Huawei uses an in-house HiSilicon Kirin chipset and this approach can swing both ways. Ending up as the odd one out is definitely a gamble, especially away from China and we are quite keen to see how the P8 fends for itself away from home, against serial hardware and big-brand domination. Huawei P8 also install Android OS v5.0 Lollipop with Emotion UI 3, doubling as a secondary SIM slot on the Dual SIM model.
The Huawei P8 ships in an impressive looking box. It is one of the most-premium packages we’ve seen in quite a while. The box has a semi-translucent plastic cap, which hides the tightly packed stuff inside.
The accessories and the paper leaflets are housed separate cardboard boxes, while the phone itself is safely tucked in-between them. The box is so elegant, it is a good choice to buy P8 as a gift.
P8 in accessories of the biggest bright spot is the original comes with a consistent with mobile phone light gold color headphones, the independent packing light gold headphones adopted and mobile phone packaging consistent style. The set of accessories includes a 1A wall charger, a Huawei headset and a USB cable. The accessories themselves are not as exclusive as the box would suggest as we’ve seen them ship with other Huawei products.
Despite that the presentation is indeed superb, more than matching the high price tag of the device.
One impressive thing to tell about the P8 is that it stick to a minimalistic and clean design all the way. Nothing is really out of place or excessive. Starting at the front, for example, Huawei has opted for a 5.2-inch Full HD display using an IPS-NEO panel. The pixel density is pretty good as well at 424ppi. The display uses an IPS-NEO panel, which delivers quite deep blacks for an LCD.
It is a little bigger that the one in the P7 and still, the deep black bezel blurs the line between screen and frame and makes for very natural and flush look, especially when the display is off. That is if you opt for the silver or black color option. Quite convenient, as the OS is also aware of the said option and it turns off the onscreen navigation on request for some extra screen real-estate.
As a member of the association in appearance, the huawei P8 in both the packaging and in mobile phone design and build quality has won the recognition of its, I completely accord with the standard of my cell phone use.The device is all-metal with a slight texture to its mat finish and feels amazing to the touch. The material also provides just enough traction to get a firm grip.
Not much else can be said about the choice of materials. Huawei appears to have made absolutely no compromises in this department. The attention to detail is superb. Even the small glass panel on the back of the phone has Gorilla Glass 3 protection, just like the front panel.
One thing missing from the previous generation is the glass back, but, the metal one feels like an upgrade more than anything else. Build quality is also perfect. Unfortunately, the P8 doesn’t have any official IP certification for enhanced resistance to water or dust.
Going round the device, we find the left side bare, just as it is on the Ascend P7. There are only a couple of plastic accents here, which can be found on the opposite side as well.
On the right side is where the action happens. It houses a total of four controls, but doesn’t feel cluttered. The volume rocker is on top, with a nice oval shape and precision cut design.
Below the button, we find two separate card slots, both sitting flush on the frame. One houses the primary nanoSIM card, while on the Dual SIM model the second tray would accept either a microSD card or a secondary nanoSIM card.
The 3.5mm headphone jack is placed on the top of the device. Next to it is the secondary noise-canceling microphone.
The bottom of the Huawei P8 has two symmetrical grills, but only one of them houses a speaker. The main microphone is hidden under the other.
The back side is perfectly flat, without a protruding camera lens, which is becoming a rarity with flagships nowadays.
Interestingly, the 13MP sensor has Optical Image Stabilization system (OIS) and it still fits inside a frame that is thinner than the Galaxy S6 or the iPhone 6. Right next to it, there is a dual-tone LED flash.
The camera lens is perhaps too close to the edge and is quite easy to cover with your fingers, but that’s just nitpicking. The rest of the back is all metal with a really nice feel to it. The glass insert near the top is where the antennas are located.
The Huawei P8 has a 13MP camera for maximum image resolution of 4160 x 3120 pixels. There’s a dual tone LED flash to go with it. The camera has F/2.0 aperture and makes use of a RGBW sensor, which reportedly delivers improved highlight rendition in high-contrast scenes and lower noise in low light. Pixel size is 1.12um, which is quite small.
Huawei has been putting a lot of emphasis on the P8’s night photography capabilities as well. The RGBW sensor is intended to help in low-light environments and the results are pretty good. We took a few shots after dark and were pleasantly surprised by the level of detail the phone picked up. Noise is also kept at bay quite well.
To make things even more-interesting, Huawei has bundled a special Light painting mode in the default camera application. It produces stunning results. No matter how long you take to complete your creation, the rest of the scene seems to stay clear and sharp and doesn’t change exposure. Here is some light art we made ourselves (we’re not terribly good with this as you can tell). Interestingly, it makes a mirrored image so you can write in front of the camera and the words come out readable.
There is also a Light trails mode, which operates much like the Light Painting but doesn’t reverse images. It captures the scene with the correct exposure and from there it keeps adding the light trails of the passing cars for as long as you like without any risk of overexposing the scene.
Huawei P8 takes high-res panorama images, with great stitching, excellent contrast and very good detail levels. It is among the best devices we would pick for panorama purposes, just like the Ascend Mate7 before it, bested only by the Apple iPhone 6 series. Here are samples in both orientations.
The Huawei P8 boots the company’s own EMUI. It’s the latest EMUI 3.1, which is the first iteration to be based on Android 5.0 Lollipop, instead of KitKat.
In this respect, the P8 is quite the ambassador of Google’s latest platform and yet, it is the similarities with previous Emotion UI versions that seem to stick out, rather than the differences. Huawei may have adopted the new core for the sake of all the performance, stability and new API improvements it brings about, but, it is still heavily customized and, on the surface, the OS has retained its signature look and feel.
The Huawei P8 comes in two main flavors – the UL00 and L09, which differ in connectivity. Both come with quad-band 2G/GPRS/EDGE support and 3G with HSDPA, with 5 bands on the UL00 and seven on the L09. This ensures up to 42.2 Mbps download speeds and 5.76 Mbps uploads.
Both versions of the P8 are also equipped with Cat. 6 LTE, capable of up to 300 Mbps downstream. The UL00 has 8 bands at its disposal, while the L09 has thirteen. As already mentioned, a Dual-SIM option is also available with the extra card sharing the slot with the microSD card, meaning you can only choose to use one of those.
The Huawei P8 is exquisitely made and can easily compete in the big leagues. It is deserved to choose this phone. It is high in performance but low in price.
