Huawei is a Chinese brand that has been growing in stature in the smartphone world, and it has culminated with 2016's launch of the excellent Honor 8. It's a smartphone that offers a smart design with plenty of features without demanding a high price tag.
With the Honor 8 you get a trendy smartphone that excels at taking selfies thanks to a front-facing camera. Sure, it doesn't have cutting-edge features such as waterproofing and extremely powerful components to play VR, but Huawei has shown with previous releases that it is adept at creating excellent mid-range and budget smartphones. The Honor 9 has now superseded it, and while it improves a lot on what makes the Honor 8 so great, it doesn't mean you should discount last year's model. The Honor 8 remains an excellent phone, one that has redefined what we should expect from mid-range handsets.
It has a SIM-free RRP of £369 in the UK with 32GB of storage. Compare that to the price tags attached to flagship phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X, and you can quickly see why the Honor 8 is such an appealing phone.
And there are better prices than those to be had. If you're looking to get your hands on the excellent Honor 8, TechRadar will help you source the best deal possible. Our price comparison tool takes in prices from all the biggest retailers and resellers so that you can be assured the cheapest price to team up with a bargain SIM only deal.
