With the Huawei P8 dual SIM the Chinese manufacturer is now bringing even its current flagship in a version for 2 SIM cards on the market. The stripped-down version P8 lite dual SIM we had already described in detail. And with this inexpensive model has Huawei hit the mark – is currently at one of the best-selling smartphones in Germany. Worth instead of the handle to P8 in comparison? How to cut the top mobile phone in dual SIM mobile test from? We checked it out thoroughly.

Typical of a flagship is the screen size: 5.2 inches are in the middle of several top smartphones of as Samsung, LG and Apple. Almost unusual contrast: The Huawei P8 is set to Full HD and dispensed WQHD as about the Galaxy S6 (test) or the LG G4 Dual (Test) running. Nevertheless, the image resolution is higher than seen with the naked eye and requires less computation or battery capacity.
The Huawei P8 is in the single-SIM version on the market since May, 2015. This variant is already often been tested. However, just not in the version with dual SIM slots. Therefore, here again worth a close look at the performance values – as well as on all the equipment and the control of the two phones.
The plan: Much equipment for (relatively) low price
Looking at the art on, they can keep up on the paper with the current top smartphones of renowned brands. But what about in practice? In a number of tests has shown that Huawei is serious about the P8. In principle, it also meets high expectations. However, some parts there remains something back, which is probably due to the price. What it is doing and whether you can really do without certain things, we have summarized for you.
While the P8 in the design and general features (more on that later) quite able to keep up, you have to take into account in the power low swabs.
- The performance is very good, but is the projection of the best Samsung mobile phones or LG phones. This is possibly because Huawei does not rely on a Qualcomm processor. Instead, it installed the chip of the Company subsidiary HiSilicon, namely the Kirin 930/935 Octacore processor.
- Along with ordinary 3GB RAM that enough for a front position in benchmark tests as Antutu. But not for the top flight.
From status of China mobile phones , the Huawei smartphones have long been far away. Hence the official Android runs in Version 5.0.2 on the P8. As usual for almost all mobile phone manufacturers, also uses Huawei on this OS still an in-house user interface: EMUI 3.1 it calls itself. If you’ve ever used one of the models Ascend P6 or P7 Huawei, knows the style. Everything is kept relatively simple and reduced, and there are various customization options such as themes, etc.
