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.
