It's the most wonderful time of the year... and we've been getting into the spirit of the festive season by giving some lovely presents to our readers.
For the second of our Christmas giveaways, we're offering an Android flagship phone, along with an extra freebie!
The Honor 8 is the latest flagship handset from Huawei's mobile e-brand, with a wide range of impressive features, including:
- 5.2-inch display with Full HD resolution
- Octa-core CPU, plus i5 co-processor
- 4GB LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB storage (plus microSD card support up to 128GB)
- Dual 12-megapixel rear cameras with hybrid autofocus and HDR support
- 8-megapixel selfie-cam
- Fingerprint sensor with 0.4-second unlock
- Bluetooth 4.2 and NFC support
- Smart Control infrared module to control other devices
- Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
- USB Type-C port
- 3000mAh battery with fast-charging (up to 47% in 30 minutes)
- 4G LTE
- 7.45mm-thick; 153g
The Honor range-topper comes with Huawei's EMUI 4.1 user interface (based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow), but the company is working on EMUI 5.0, based on Android 7.0 Nougat, and its first preview has already been released.
The Honor 8 is usually priced at $399 in the United States, and €369 in Europe. It earned itself a very good score in our review a couple of months ago - make sure you check that out!
But one of our lucky readers will now get the chance to see how good the handset is for themselves. This is your chance to win a Huawei Honor 8 in stunning Sapphire Blue, along with a massive 128GB SanDisk Ultra Class 10 microSDXC card!
The handset includes dual-SIM support, and is EU-spec (which means it comes with a European plug) - but the giveaway is open to all of our readers around the world!
