Design and Display

Comfort is key

Ever got cramp from holding your mobile? The back of the Honor 8S features a dewdrop design, which means it’s got a curved back panel that sits more comfortably in your palm. Whether you’re watching videos on YouTube or playing Candy Crush, your phone will feel more natural in your hand.


More screen for more immersion

With a whopping 84.6% screen to body ratio, you’ll get a big screen experience from a mid-sized handset – in fact, the Honor 8S has the best ratio in its price range. Speaking of the screen, it’s got a HD+ FullView Display, so you catch up on the latest episodes on your commute without missing your TV for a second.



Dark condition, bright photos

With a larger aperture that lets more light into the camera, you’ll get better photos in low light conditions, so getting post-worthy photos on the big night out is easier than ever.


Effortless selfies with effects you’ll love

The 5 MP front camera has a whole host of great effects that will help you up your selfie-game. The nude make-up beauty filter will make everyone in the shot look flawless –  no more taking a hundred snaps before everyone is happy.


Under the hood

A battery life that won’t quit on you

With a massive battery life of up to 34 hours from a charge, you’re set for the whole day and then some – no more turning off data in the afternoon to try and save some power for the evening.


Storage you’ll struggle to fill

With a massive battery life of up to 34 hours from a charge, you’re set for the whole day and then some – no more turning off data in the afternoon to try and save some power for the evening.


Be kind to your eyes

By reducing the emission of blue light, you can watch for longer without damaging or straining your eyes. Binge on even the longest flights without having to worry about the effect on your eyes.

HONOR 8S is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from or left handers I only bought this earlier this week and cannot get sort out how to use it or what certain symols are. no-way will google let me in as I use google on a laptop and won't let me use this device also. it insists I am a hacker. I also can't hear the sound at the highest level but have yet to try some headphones to see if that works or will not be able to hear incoming calls. i think I will have to go back to carphone whse tomorrow and get help.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for I bought this phone a few months ago and I am shocked by how slow the system isnot only that it takes a long time to charge it and the charger plug gets very hot. The camera isn't too bad and the general use of the phone is very easy to understand. However because of how slow the phone is I will be changing it again to something a lot better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone, lousy connection to PC Really good phone for the money - lots of facilities. But - you can't access files by using Explorer on your PC, and you have to use HiSuite which is Huawei's proprietary software. And it is a real pain to get working. I spent hours fiddling around and google and the Huawei UK community website suggests it is a common problem. My local store (Dorchester) were very helpful - they could not solve the problem but made a number of suggestions. And that enabled me to solve the problem. It could have been avoided if I could have used Explorer direct (as I did on my old Samsung) rather than Huawei's interface.
