Another smartphone brand that churns out great mid-range options is Chinese electronics brand Huawei, and the Huawei G8 passed through the Chinese electronics certification body, TENAA, in Mainland China just this weekend.
The Huawei G8 is a beautiful 5.5” smartphone that comes in white, gold and black. It has a form factor reminiscent of the iPhone 6, and the gold variant may give the beholder even bigger reasons to agree with the resemblance.
The big-screen beauty has these goodies under the hood:
-Chipset: 64-bit Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 clocked at 1700 MHz, ARM Cortex-A53
-Graphics: Adreno 405
-Connectivity: LTE, HSPA, HSUPA, EDGE, GPRS
-Internal Storage: 32GB, 16GB
-Android Version: 5.1
-Camera: 13MP main camera, 5MP front camera
The Huawei G8 comes in 2 variants: The 2GB RAM version, retailing at $370, and the 3GB RAM version, retailing at $434. If 32GB of internal storage space isn’t enough for the user, expansion is possible via the microSD slot that can handle up to 64GB of extra space. And if a dual SIM card is a need for a prospective user’s lifestyle, the Huawei G8 also packed that in, rather thoughtfully.
As for other bells and whistles, the Huawei G8 has a fingerprint scanner that can beef up the security on the device, as well as a light sensor and proximity sensor. And if it matters to the user, the two cameras also have a dedicated flash, each. Perfect for selfies in the dark.
All in all, the Huawei G8 promises to be a powerful octa-core smartphone with everything one needs, right in it.
By contrast, a 32GB Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge can cost around $950 without a contract, while the Samsung Galaxy S6 can cost around $680 off-contract, as well.
For almost the same computing power, with all the basics inside, and the added benefit of being able to use and enjoy a microSD card, as well as host two SIM cards on the phone, this mid-range beauty is actually a strong contender to, and possibly a better buy than Samsung’s latest flagship models.
