In phrases of storage, the P9 comes with 32GB, as does the Honor eight. Both can use a MicroSD card to broaden the memory as much as 128GB nevertheless, so there must be plenty of room for all of your apps and footage. But the octa-core Kirin 955 carried out admirably all told, with the 3GB of RAM backing it up.
And with a Kirin 950 and 4GB of RAM within the Honor 8, we’re expecting similarly stellar performance. The Honor 8, compared, has an all-glass fascia which apparently accommodates 15 layers to refract mild and make it change color. And talking of colors, you may get the handset in either white, grey, or blue.
The P9’s dual-lens Leica camera setup is no doubt its most interesting feature. Huawei has loaded each these telephones with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Unfortunately, it’s additionally added its own Android pores and skin, Emotion UI. The skin has by no means been significantly good. In reality, we had been moved to deem it ‘God-terrible’ in our P9 review.
The Honor eight however gets a 2.5D glass on the back and front, along with metal strips runnning alongside the edges. It looks quite distinctive, specifically the back of the device which will get 15-layers taht refracts mild in distictive when you transfer the system.
When it involves the P9, you’ve got a choice between grey, silver, rose gold, or gold. Huawei launched a fantastic handset with the P9 this 12 months, providing us with what is well its best telephone yet.
And whereas the Honor eight doesn’t have the Leica branding, it does come with two 12MP lenses, and the same 1.25um pixel measurement because the P9. Which we’re hoping means it’s going to produce shots of a similar high quality, however we’ll have to wait until we’re capable of put it via its paces to see whether or not it can manage to maintain up. If you haven’t been overwhelmed by any of the options talked about so far, this is where Huawei is aiming to win you over.
However, P9’s have been reported to get scorching whereas utilizing the digicam. The digital camera on my Honor 8 stays cool each time I use it and has taken glorious photos. The P9 can use the B&W digital camera while the Honor eight uses filters for B&W. Not that that matters a lot as you are able to do superb picture editing with apps like Snapseed.
That stated, the all-glass fascia also means the Honor 8 gets easily smudged with fingerprints. You get the same display screen, software program, and sure the identical efficiency from both the P9 and Honor eight, but the Honor is barely cheaper. It appears the non-detachable Li-Ion three,000 mAh battery is completely enough in relation to maintaining with the competitors then, but it’s nothing revolutionary. Seeing because the Honor eight additionally comes with a 3,000 mAh cell, you can count on related performance from that handset, too.
The Honor 6X has a 12-megapixel and a pair of-megapixel rear digital camera, coupled with an 8-megapixel entrance digicam. It offers an aperture range between f/zero.ninety five and f/16 and phase detection autofocus for focusing within zero.three-seconds.
