In April, the new budget smartphone from Huawei – Honor 8A – officially went on sale in Ukraine. This entry-level device. He can not boast a powerful processor or advanced camera. But it has a lot of decent features – nice design with a keyhole, the presence of NFC module and the unlock function in the face.

Design

The appearance of the smartphone can be considered one of its advantages. He has got a wide display with a teardrop cutout for the front camera – it looks much neater than the unibrow, which has all pretty tired. The screen size is 6.09 inches. Thanks to the thin frame display occupies 87% of the entire front panel. Below, however, there is a thick chin.

The display used IPS-matrix. The screen has good viewing angle and high brightness display is well visible even in bright sunlight.

The back panel is made of plastic material – one part is glossy and the other matte. Looks original. On the rear panel is placed a fingerprint scanner in the center of the smartphone.
