Honor 8 Hands On-23

Honor is in the process of making an American invasion. The subbrand of the Chinese company Huawei has long had its eyes on the US market, but has previously not been able to get their foot in the door. All that appears to be changing with the Honor 8, which is now available.

The Honor 8 is a promising device that brings near-flagship tier specs to your fingertips at a fraction of the price of its competitors. The phone hopes to go toe-to-toe with the likes of big hitters like Samsung and Apple. Whereas grabbing a cutting edge smartphone from these companies will set you back $700 to $900, the Honor 8 is available for just around half that much.

Features

Sure, you’re not getting the absolute best technology available, but many smartphone buyers have started seeing diminishing returns on investing in the latest and greatest. When the first iPhone rolled out, it sold for 600 bucks, but now Walmart sells a device that out-specs it for $10. The cost of smartphone components has plummeted even as the technology is rapidly improving, so now it’s easy to scoop up near-flagship quality without breaking the bank.

As if that $400 price tag wasn’t alluring enough, Honor is having a limited-time promo in celebration of the launch that gives you $50 off your purchase of an Honor 8 device. Just use the coupon code H8PREREG when you check out.
