The Honor 8, the 2016 flagship smartphone from Huawei sub-brand Honor, is now on sale at B&H. The device can be snapped up in 32 GB or 64 GB variants, coming in at $249.99 and $299 respectively.
To pick up the handset at these prices, you’ll have to select the white color variant: the 64 GB model in black is still priced at $449.99 and the 32 GB blue model is at $399 — so you’d be making a $150 saving.
The Honor 8 comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, Kirin 950 octa-core processor, 4 GB of RAM, a dual-lens 12 MP rear camera (with f/2.2 aperture and dual-tone flash), 8 MP front camera and 3,000 mAh battery. It launches with Android Marshmallow but can also now be upgraded to Android Nougat. An upgrade to Android Oreo somewhere down the line is expected but has yet to be confirmed.

The device supports GSM networks, meaning that it won’t be compatible with Verizon, Sprint and US Cellular. You’ll be able to use it with T-Mobile and AT&T SIM cards with full LTE capabilities, though.
The Honor 9 has now succeeded the Honor 8 and comes with better cameras and a faster processor, but if you want a rock-solid phone on a budget, last year’s Honor flagship is still an excellent choice: read our full Honor 8 review here and check out the B&H deal below.
