About Huawei Honor 8S - Review, Specs + more

The Honor 8S is made by Honor which is actually a sub-brand of Huawei. In the quagmire of smartphones it's easy to get confused; the 8S stands out mainly due to its cheap price but also because it has a back that features a unique dual-texture. This "multi layers" look not only gives the 8S great style, but the texture makes it easy to hold one-handed.

Plus, there's no slippery posh surfaces here, and that kind of thinking carries over to the rest of the phone - it's a no-frills model and shouldn't be mistaken for anything else.

Available in Gold, Black or Blue in the UK, the 8S looks great whichever colour option you choose. The phone is 8.5mm thick and weighs 146g. This makes the phone lightweight and slim.

Facial recognition

You will be able to get yourself up and running with the Honor 8S in no time. The phone has a simple set of features. You can choose to keep the phone secure with a PIN Code or pattern that you swipe on the screen to unlock.

Don't forget that the Honor 8S also uses facial recognition technology, so once you set it up it will simply unlock when the camera recognises you.

Honor 8S Camera

The camera on the Honor 8S is a 13-megapixel camera with an f/1.8 aperture. This allows more light to enter the sensor for clearer pictures and detailed night shots.

The advanced camera lens can create accurate background bokeh effects for stylish shots that look professional. Shooting modes include:

  • Night shots
  • Panorama shots
  • HD-R
  • Pro mode
  • Continuous shots
  • Videos

The Honor 8S is a very cheap smartphone, that will set you back only £199.99 to buy outright. It's not going to win any awards for being superfast or uber flashy, but that isn't the point in this model.

For that affordable price, nobody can argue and you get a 5.71-inch 720x1520 LCD touchscreen, the MediaTek Helio A22 SoC at the helm, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a 13 MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, a 5 MP selfie snapper, and a 3,020 mAh battery. It runs Android 9 Pie.

Our Verdict on the Honor 8S

If you're looking for a budget model from Huawei and don't want to break the bank, you can't go wrong here. Other cheap models to consider from other manufacturers are Samsung's Galaxy A10, or Galaxy A20e.

The great thing about cheaper phones like this is that networks throw goodies and data at you - take a look at the table above to compare pay monthly deals on the Honor 8S and you'll be sure to spot a real bargain.

Honor 8S deals: How long does delivery take?

If your device is in stock with the retailer, then most orders will be shipped by them within 24 hours so you could have your phone tomorrow morning. If it's a pre-order then we will let you know the approximate delivery date

Is SIM Only better for Honor 8S?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Huawei Honor 8S, so it only really makes financial sense if you are in the fortunate position to be able to buy the handset outright first. Yes, it works out cheaper overall if you can do that, at least nearly always - but it is really a personal preference. Find out more about SIM Only deals here

Not sure which mobile network to go for?

oneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Huawei Honor 8S ee contract or a Huawei Honor 8S Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - oneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Huawei Honor 8S contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signals across all major mobile networks within the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, in their recent research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Should I buy SIM-Only, and will it save money?

In truth, this answer will depend on your personal financial circumstances, in combination with your mobile phone usage requirements.

Out of our 2044 Huawei Honor 8S deals, our cheapest Huawei Honor 8S deal over the entire life of the contract is £227.99, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

oneCompare's team have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM-free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.

A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Huawei Honor 8S SIM Free phone would cost to buy i.e. this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront.

The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Huawei Honor 8S handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Huawei Honor 8S Contract.

Did you know? You can compare SIM only deals from Sky, o2, Vodafone and all the other networks with oneCompare!

Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contracts, is to consider purchasing a pre owned Huawei Honor 8S phone from the likes of MusicMagpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
