Modern smartphones can do incredible things, but you’ve got to pony up almost the cost of a brand new computer to stay on the cutting edge.
Snagging a new Galaxy Note 7 will set you back at least $800, and that’s not even for an unlocked device. Not everyone has the scratch necessary to pick up the top of the top of the line, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve nice things, too. Huawei agrees, and the Chinese telecommunications company has announced preorders for the Honor 8, a mid-priced Android phone with all the trimmings for $400.
Featuring a 5.2-inch 1080p display and a dual lens 12-megapixel camera, the Honor is ready to help you Instagram the world, but its real charm lies in its battery.
The Honor 8 has a 3000mAh battery with super fast charging. Huawei claims the phone can get to a halfway charge after just 30 minutes of being plugged in. For travelers, this could be huge. Instead of hoping you get back 15 percent of your battery during your 30-minute layover, now that brief stop would be a reasonable amount of time to recharge.
You also get 3D-fingerprint unlocking, NFC for wireless payments, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, and a 2.3GHz CPU.
The Honor 8 will sell for $400 unlocked in the U.S. and is available for AT&T and T-Mobile customers and ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. If you’re looking for a full-featured phone without the full-featured price tag, you may want to give the Honor 8 a try.
