  • By matsya mody on 22 May 2017
    Best thing about Honor 8 new model is the variety of colours it has, personally Honor 8 in sapphire blue colour looked stunning but I have never used a blue phone so I got the sunrise gold colour. I loved the colour and the phone both. Camera is good and so it the display and battery life. Altogether it is a good phone
