Huawei G8 Key Test Findings

  • 1080p video is also decent, but nothing great. Bitrate is rather low.
  • Video player handles all video and audio codecs, except AC3 sound; it can also play back vides in a floating window.
  • Emotion UI v.3.1 is great, smooth, with rich customization options and powerful system tools.
  • The transition to Android Lollipop has some persistent bugs and performance drops to iron out, which are probably here to stay.
  • We appreciate the industry leading granular app permission control.
  • Still images offer decent quality, but there is a lot more to be desired in terms of sharpness and dynamic range.
  • Focus is also an issue at times.
  • The powerful manual mode of the Mate S is missing, so are the intriguing light painting modes.
  • The speaker is only average in terms of loudness.
  • Both CPU and GPU performance are really poor, not nearly what the Snapdragon 615 and Adreno 405 are capable of. The G8 definitely suffers from poor software optimization.
  • The fingerprint reader is truly one of the best around – it’s fast, accurate, always on and also incorporates touch gestures (although a few of the Mate S ones are missing).
  • All-round connectivity with LTE Cat.4, dual-SIM available
  • More than decent 70 hours endurance rating, a good 10 hours more than the Mate S.
  • Nice 5.5-inch IPS LCD display, with decent maximum brightness and above average contrast, generally a pleasure to use.
  • Excellent materials and build quality .
  • Impressively solid aluminum unibody, thin profile with a clean and simplistic look.
