Honor 8 vs Huawei P9 – What’s the Difference?
Honor 8 vs Huawei P9 HTTP://www.mobilegeeks.com At first glance the Honor 8 looks like a glass version of the Huawei P9, they have the same dual cameras, 5.2” Full HD display, battery size and they are even running the same UI. Let’s see if it’s worth spending a couple hundred dollars more on the P9 or if the Honor 8 is the clear choice.
Huawei makes some of my favorite smartphones, their sister brand Honor used to come out with similarly spec’ed devices that were nowhere near as sophisticated looking as their more expensive counterparts. That’s not what’s happening with the Honor 8 whose design and finish are more similar to the premium aesthetic of Samsung with it’s 15 layers giving the 8 a stunning shine. By contrast the P9 whose 2.5D glass front has a more understated elegance. Both devices run EMUI 4.1 on Android 6.0, sport the same size size battery, offer a MicroSD card for expansion, have a 2.5 inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, although I did notice a pretty big difference in color temperature, but you can adjust it in the settings to get the display’s looking virtually identical.
Being all metal the P9 is a little heavier but comes in a touch thinner than the 8. Under the hood there is a slight difference in processor but in everyday use I’ve not been able to decern a performance difference when spinning through the UI opening and closing apps. The P9 offers a bit more punch in terms of being able to multitask and open large applications or games, but both processors do offer a premium experience.
