Huawei P8 front hands on

Huawei launched its 2015 flagship device the Huawei P8 in April. Today, it landed on Pakistan’s shores and we got to play with it.  The device looks really sleek and even with its full metal uni-body, it is extremely light. The Full HD 1080p display was quite impressive which could rival that of any current flagship device in the market.

The 13MP camera is the main attraction of the Huawei P8. The camera uses a “worlds first” 4 – color RGBW (Red, Green, Blue, White) Imaging sensor, which boasts 32% higher brightness in high contrast images and 78% less color noise in low light situations. The camera coupled with OIS is said to rival even some DSLR cameras.  The design of the camera is an achievement in its self, due to the sleek nature of the device there is no camera bump. This makes the device look even more beautiful that it already is. The camera has two cool features which are worth mentioning,  Light Painting and Director mode. Light Painting captures various light trails, that could be stars in the sky, car tail lights, rushing water etc. The second cool feature is Director Mode which connects 4 smartphones to record a single video from various angles. One primary device and 3 secondary devices, all connected to each other over Wifi. The primary device can view what the other 3 are recording and make into one great video.
