The first Impression:

When we P8 Huawei held for the first time in his hands, we were pleasantly surprised. The shiny golden back in connection with the frame elements is currently in vogue, and Huawei is this followed with flying colors. The smartphone is only 6.4mm thin and with only 144g, it is very light in the hand. The device is not waterproof, but at least nano-coated. This means that it is protected from steam, water or raindrops.

Even for me as a woman is the P8 not too big and I can reach all of the elements on the screen easily.Visually we like it also exceptionally good. There is also the possibility of one-hand operation, it is wiped with the finger on the screen from left to right-or vice versa.

Unfortunately, the screenshots the crisp quality of FullHD display not to the extent again, as is the case in reality. The Full HD resolution offers brilliant colors and the brightness is great – even when the sun shines.

The home screen offers a variety of customization options, so that every user can pursue his individual wishes. We find that service is a mix between Android and iOS applications, which was helpful to us in the use of part. Stefan used an Android and I iOS system, so that we are both familiar to use and also unfamiliar again found.

All in all, one finds after a short period of fast with the Huawei P8 cope and come to the main functions very quickly, as the P8 is logical and intuitive.
