  • Overall:

I bought the G8 yesterday at Media Markt. Actually I wanted the Samsung Galaxy S6 but I decided to go for the Huawei. And that for many reasons.

My previous smartphone was the S3 but after a virus has eaten away my operating system it was hardly usable anymore. In addition, the battery was broken, so I had to get a new one.

The following aspects were especially important for me:

display resolution
camera
speed
battery life
functionality of the fingerprint sensor
size
price

The display resolution of the S6 is higher than that of the G8, but that is hardly noticeable. Pictures, videos and everything else are displayed in razor sharpness. In my opinion, they are pretty much on a par with each other in terms of the display.

Also with the camera I can only say: top! The S6 has 3MP more and takes really beautiful pictures. Actually, I liked the Honor 7 because of the camera, but even though it has 20MP the camera was much blurred, at least in good light conditions (yes, that sounds contradictory, but that’s how it is). The camera of the G8 takes really great pictures, sometimes even too sharp. With selfies, impurities suddenly appear which the view in the mirror did not show before. Some people claim that the color reproduction of the G8 is not true to life. I haven’t noticed any of this in good or bad lighting conditions, and I’m actually very critical of cameras.

In terms of speed, I can only say that there’s no difference to the S6. Everything runs smoothly and even demanding games that really require speed and accuracy, like Tempel Run, Piano Tiles and the like run completely error-free. With Amazns Video App I was shocked how fast everything went, because all the other devices in the household take forever to play the video. At half charge the battery lasted almost the whole day when used continuously. Only tests can prove that the battery is better than the S6’s. Again, the sensor for fingerprints is really ingenious. It lies super so that you can sometimes even get it unintentionally. And it works great! I can’t say anything about the s6 here, because the function was blocked in the market.

The cell phone is big in any case. I find it really perfect for using. But unfortunately it is too big for the trouser pocket. The S6 is also not exactly small but tiny compared to the G8. You can already tell I’m really a fan of the Huawei. It is really unbeatable! The S6 would have cost 499 at Mediamarkt. The G8 349. Since for me the Huawei really fulfilled all my wishes, I chose this one, although I always said Huawei does not come into my house… Opinions can be changed.

Summarized once again:

Pro:
-Price
-Camera
-Size
-Resolution
-Sensor
-Speed
-Extendable with SD card

Contra:

-no Qi

You see, there is hardly any contrast.

>A clear recommendation to buy. This thing is madness!
