Huawei has focused on delivering an exceptional photographic experience with the G8 thereby giving you the ability to capture amazing photos. This is done through the inclusion of advanced camera technology.


The main camera consists of a 13MP BSI sensor with optical image stabilisation and a larger aperture 28mm wide-angle lens. This all means you get sharp images without blur, even in challenging conditions. The camera has been designed to capture the maximum amount of light available in any situation.

To assist with capturing photos at night a high dynamic flash is integrated which automatically adjusts to highlight figures in the foreground. It also adjusts the light given to make everything more visible.

If you have ever felt you don’t quite get the composition of your photos right you may enjoy the help you receive from the Smart Composition feature. This handy feature gives you suggestions on how to improve your photo and make it even better.

Finally, the camera benefits from the enhanced protection and greater transparency given by a sapphire lens. This artificial synthesis sapphire lens means your photos are not affected by a reduction in light which is the case with traditional glass solutions.


The body of the Huawei G8 is mostly constructed from metal. In fact, 90% of it is made from aviation-level aluminium with ceramic blasting technology being used during the manufacturing process. The result is a stunning look while adding a tactile feel.

Huawei has, during the design process, introduced a camber to the screen surface. This may at first seem a small thing, but it helps protect it against cracks, scratches and makes typing easier.

To ensure you can fully enjoy your music six-speaker sounds holes have been added to the bottom of the phone. These not only add to the symmetry of the phone and the look of it, but they also give you a louder and clearer audio experience.


Phones need to be secure, but how do you achieve this without affecting the convenience of using them. The answer is with an accurate fingerprint ID sensor which unlocks in just 0.5 seconds. Due to improvements in technology the next generation of fingerprint ID sensors learn every time you use them. This enables them to improve their accuracy, so you are recognised instantly.

It is now possible to do more with the fingerprint sensor on your smartphone as you can now perform tasks like answering calls and controlling alarms. This gives you the ability to deal with calls quickly without having to access your screen.

Other Features

The Huawei G8 has a powerful Qualcomm 8 core processor giving it the ability to be fast and efficient. So you can play the latest games and use demanding apps, with your battery life being kept to a minimum.

There is plenty of storage space in the form of 32GB of internal storage and, unlike some smartphones, the G8 has a full 3GB of RAM, for all your multitasking requirements.

With a 5.5 inch screen, you have the ability to enjoy all your apps, and will find websites are easier to navigate and more rewarding. Photos and movies on your phone will look better than ever before, with bright colours and crisp due to the full 1080p resolution.

Two antennas provide twice the connectivity giving you improved network reception, thanks to the smart switching meaning you never have to worry about losing your signal again. The Huawei G8 is compatible with LTE and HSDP+ for a truly quick fast internet experience. With it, you will be able to download quicker than ever before.

We all want our phones to last longer, as we now use them throughout the day. With a high capacity 3000 mAh battery being integrated, you know you can keep enjoying using your phone longer, and don’t have to worry where the nearest power point is.
