Huawei will surely be on a roll this year from now on. They just showcased their latest flagship called the P8 that will surely shake up the competition due to the performance, style and pricing it provides for a high-end device.

Unboxing

P8's premium packaging
The Huawei P8 comes in a high quality looking package. It contains an earphone with mic, wall charger adapter, micro USB cables, SIM ejector and some paper documentations. What's missing in the package is a case and screen protector.

One of the best built phone I've ever held this year! It looks amazing, the bezels are extremely thin and the materials used is made out of very good quality.

The buttons are also well placed, the screen has gorilla glass protection to prevent damages and it's very thin but feels so durable.

I also liked its size as it just fits right thru my hands perfectly as I'm usually not a fan of phones with large screens. I also loved its weight as it doesnn't feel too light nor heavy, but just right. Build and design wise, Huawei made this a step closer to perfection. Maybe the only complaint I have here is the body might be prone to scratches. So I still strongly suggest to get a good high quality case.

Design-wise this is a looker, reminds me a bit of a smaller iPhone 6 combined with the good design ID of Huawei that further improved it.

Even at just 1080p this is arguably one of the best screens in the market today. The color reproduction is outstanding and the brightness level feels amazing in your eyes. It's so good that makes me think that its very close to the level of the LG G4. For the nth time and even with so  much redundancy, the screen looks very good.

Dubbed as a compact camera killer, the Huawei P8 is a phone that everyone will surely like. All the shots I took  was in auto-mode in low light, but the results were very good! I loved everything I saw from during my very short time with it. The software, shutter speed, focus and everything. To my eyes, this could be the best point and shoot camera I've seen this year that can match the LG G4 on a cheaper starting price point.

Note: Hopefully we can fully test it soon in different conditions.

As of the moment...

The Antutu benchmark
This is a smartphone that everyone should know and hype! The Huawei P8 is an underrated handset that could be the front runner for our smartphone of the year award. I tried to be nitpick, but I can't find anything wrong with it during my short moment with it.  The only thing that I can criticize with it right now is the body might be prone to scratches just like any other metal clad phone. The design and build quality is fantastic, the size and weight feels great, the screen is one of the best if not the best FHD screen out there, the camera is superb and the UI looks really good. Then the best part of it is the pricing, for something this good its priced lower than almost all the other international flagships this year.

According to the people of Huawei Megamall, this handset might be available already here by the 2nd week of July and might also come in 64 GB version.
