DEAL: Get the Honor 8 for less than £300

Well, we’re part-way through Black Friday, and the deals have been coming thick and fast all day. But there’s plenty left to come.

In fact, if you’re in the market for a new phone this Black Friday, why not give the Honor 8 a go? Honor’s gone and knocked £70 off the price of this solid handset, too, so now’s the time to buy.

Over at vMall, you can now get the phone for £299, which is a great price for this top performing handset.

When we tried out the Honor 8, we were very impressed, especially with the speedy fingerprint scanner and top performance.

And while the proprietary EMUI skin doesn’t add that much to the user experience, we still concluded that “the Honor 8 is a good all-round mid-range smartphone that looks good and performs well.”

Honor, a subsidiary of Huawei, has packed in some decent hardware, too. Under the hood you’ll find an Octa-core Kirin 950 chip, backed up by 4GB RAM.

There’s also a 5.2-inch 1080p display that features a 423 pixel-per-inch density – so pictures look particularly sharp.

Elsewhere, the 12MP dual-sensor camera provides decent low-light performance, and you’ve got the option of expanding the 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card.

All in all, this is a great deal on a solid handset that’s worth considering if you don’t need top-end specs but still want some premium features.
