The handset gets 3,000 mAh battery with fast-charging feature. Other components include USB type C, fingerprint scanner, and Bluetooth 4.2. Huawei Honor 8 is available in Pearl White, Midnight Black, Sapphire Blue, and Gold.

It is a solid choice for users who want to get beast-specs smartphone. You don't need to pay too much for that.
