This device is powered by a decent processor with 3 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. This type of hardware is the basic requirement for this time. If the internal storage is not enough, 8A Pro supports 512 GB external storage. So users can put their files on an SD card safely. Honor 8A Pro has a 6.09″ screen with DewDrop notch and TÜV Rheinland eye comfort certification. This helps to reduce the blue light from the display. The backside of the phone has a dual texture design. Users can see two tones of color and textures at the back.
The Pro comes with speakers like the previous Honor 8A. According to the company, there is a new new SmartPA speaker that gives 30% better sound than the previous model. Honor has made this possible with a big sound cavity and a new structure. This smartphone also supports Wireless FM which means users don’t need headphones to listen to local radio stations. The Honor 8A Pro has a big tray that supports two SIM cards and one memory card at the same time.
Camera and Other Features
Honor 8A Pro has one 13 MP camera with f/1.8 aperture at the backside. It can record 1920x1080p videos with this. The phone uses software improvements and power of the aperture to get a good bokeh effect and take pictures at low light. On the front side, there is an 8 MP sensor with an f/2.0 aperture. There are few beautification filters and modes to give a better-looking selfie. The camera department of 8A Pro is minimal and simple.
The front camera also helps with face unlock. There is a fingerprint scanner at the backside as well. Both things are very important for security purposes. Honor 8A Pro has better efficiency due to Helio P35 chipset and some built-in features like Power saving mode. The EMUI also does good application management to provide smoother operation.
According to some data on Honor’s website the phone is quite durable. They have done several tests and they say that phone can withstand a good amount of stress. Honor 8A has a very basic set of hardware. It has an octa-core processor that can do day to day tasks run normal apps and do very light gaming. The battery on the inside is also of decent size and it can power this phone for normal use. Screen and the design are also good looking. The front camera is 8 MP which is appropriate for this price range.
The 13 MP camera on back is also very standard and it is enough for many users. However people do look for dual cameras because other manufacturers offer dual sensors at the back. Many people who know may settle with one module but a normal person will certainly compare other model. Thus the lack of dual cameras can be deal-breaker for some. So we suggest the company to put wide angle sensor in next revision.
