Huawei's Honor 8 arrived on the scene with a dual-lens camera. Is it just a gimmick, or does it actually work?

The Honor 8 is Huawei’s attempt to create a product that offers a lot of appeal to the younger user, borrowing camera tricks from the flagship P9 and offering premium design and build. It is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor, on par with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 series. The dual camera setup creates a depth of field effect, and has a few tricks with the Emotion UI as well.

OUR VERDICT

The Huawei Honor 8 is a great device for those who would like to create artistic pictures from a compact form factor of a smartphone. It is great for Instagram enthusiasts and also for those who would love to click portraits from their smartphones. The octa-core processor is also a decent all-rounder, and the design makes the Honor 8 the perfect companion for the style conscious.
