Let’s not be bashful. This camera rocks. We very much enjoyed the still photo performance on the Huawei P9, and the Honor 8 is nearly identical. Dual camera sensors mimic the way our eyes work. One sensor focuses on color, the other on light. When the output of both sensors is merged, we get photos unlike any other phone we’ve reviewed.

We’re not producing our full crazy in-depth review format as performance is so similar to the P9, but we are detailing what’s new, what’s different, and taking a quick look at a few features we missed in our P9 Real Camera Review. We’d recommend also watching that review to see the full commentary on what makes this camera unique.

The fact that Honor is now delivering this camera system starting at $399 is pretty incredible. How does the Honor 8 compare to its more expensive sibling the Huawei P9? Can it compete against other mid-range budget buster phones? Will it be outclassed by more expensive flagship phones?
