Huawei P8 is a flagship that's actually worth checking out


Huawei P8 is a flagship that's actually worth checking out

The Huawei P8 has launched at a glitzy event in London, signalling the arrival of the Chinese firm's latest flagship smartphone - and early impressions are mostly positive.
Its predecessors - the Ascend P6 and Ascend P7 - failed to match up to the flagship competition from the likes of Samsung, LG, Sony and HTC, but this time around it's stepped up its game.
The 5.2-inch display has a full HD resolution, so it's not quite as sharp as the Samsung Galaxy S6 or LG G3, but it matches up to the Sony Xperia Z3 and HTC One M9 meaning Android 5.0should look nice.
In terms of design the full metal unibody of the P8 is smart and premium, and while Huawei claims it's instantly recognisable in its own right, it's hard not to draw comparisons with the iPhone 6.
There's a punchy octa-core Kirin 930 processor housed inside the exceedingly svelte 6.4mm metal uni-body - which means the P8 has plenty of power while being thinner than the iPhone 6.

New camera modes

A 13MP camera resides on the rear of the P8, and boasts optical image stablisation (OIS), low light shooting abilities, dual-colour temperature LED flash and Director Mode.
Huawei claims the latter will allow you to capture scenes with multiple cameras. Lights, camera, action!
We're still waiting on the Huawei P8 release date and price, but we should know more about these soon.
