honor-8

Update: Amazon is now offering the Honor 8 from just $265 shipped in Pearl White, $265 shipped in Midnight Black, and $290 shipped in Sapphire Blue. Alternatively, you can grab the White or Black models from Amazon in 64GB for $315 shipped.

B&H offers the unlocked Honor 8 32GB smartphone in Pearl White or Midnight Black for $289.99 shipped. That’s $110 off the list price, and the lowest price we’ve seen for a new model. It has a 5.2-inch Super IPS LCD display, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, dual 12-megapixel rear cameras, and a premium design with glass on the front and back…

On top of just the phone itself (which at this price is great deal alone), this package deal also comes with a clear case, a Dr. Strange gift box, and your choice of either the black or white JBL Synchros E40BT Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones ($60 value).

A SIM card and service plan must be purchased separately, but the device should work just fine with carriers such as AT&T and T-Mobile, although others such as Verizon and Sprint are incompatible. This device is carrier unlocked, meaning it can be used with any GSM carrier that uses a frequency or band that this device supports.

Here are the full specs:

  • GSM / 4G LTE Capable
  • North American Variant
  • Dual f/2.2 12MP Rear Cameras
  • f/2.4 8MP Front Camera with Flash
  • Kirin 950 Octa-Core Chipset
  • 32GB Storage Capacity and 4GB of RAM
  • Fingerprint Reader
  • 5.2″ Super IPS LCD Display
  • Full HD 1920 x 1080 Native Resolution
  • Android Marshmallow 6.0

The Honor 8, made by Huawei, is one of the best budget smartphones available this year. While it isn’t without compromise, you would be hard-pressed to find a better bang for your buck than this metal-and-glass build high-powered smartphone packing Huawei’s powerful Kirin 950, the latest version of Android, and more. Be sure to read our full review, in which we praised the phone for its stellar cameras. The phone is rated 4.3 out of 5 stars from 103 Amazon customers.

B&H also has both of the above colors in their 64GB model, also $110 off the retail price at $339 shipped. Also of note, Honor will be selling the phone directly from their store starting on Black Friday at a slightly less discount — $100 off the retail price.
