Just when you thought you’d seen all the Android flagship smartphones that this half of 2017 has to offer, here comes the Honor to blow your presumptions away. Many might brush off this Huawei sub-brand because it is, quite, a sub-brand. That, however, would be a serious mistake with the Huawei Honor 8 Pro. Because as far as this latest Honor flagship smartphone is concerned, it could have been called the “Huawei P10 Plus Lite”. Which is to say, it’s pretty damned impressive. Especially for something that comes well below this year’s high-end smartphone prices.

The freshly-launched Huawei Honor 8 Pro doesn’t just boast some upgraded specs, however. This 5.7-inch mobile is much bigger than the original 5.1-inch Honor 8 too, putting it in line with Huawei’s Mighty Mate 9. Here’s our early Huawei Honor 8 Pro review after spending a few days with this flagship phone killer.
