Huawei’s sub brand Honor has been pushing out some very good smartphones recently. The latest one launched in India is Honor 8 Pro. It is an improved version of last year’s Honor 8. Currently the older Honor 8 has been selling for a much lower price in India – around Rs 19K on Amazon.in. MRP price was Rs 29,999 and Flipkart too is selling this for a cheaper price now ( check here ). The newer flagship Honor 8 Pro is priced at Rs 29,999 MRP as well.
So which one you should go for ? Honor 8 ? or Honor 8 Pro ( Full Specs here ) ?
In my opinion, the newer Honor 8 Pro is in every way a big upgrade to the older Honor 8 and Huawei P9. It has a better processor, bigger battery, more memory, better resolution display and newer Android Nougat based EMUI 5.1. However, looking at the specs sheet, you would notice Huawei has retained the same 12MP Dual camera system seen on older Honor 8 and P9. So in terms of Camera hardware, there is no noticeable upgrade.
So if you own a Honor 8, and if you are buying the Pro variant thinking you are gonna get better camera performance, especially in low light, you would be disappointed. If you are buying for the camera, then both these devices have the same dual camera system on board. If you want a better, great overall package, 6GB ram 128GB Honor 8 Pro would be a great buy in my opinion.
