Until now I had no idea one could purchase an unlocked smartphone. Sure enough, Best Buy has the answer to your cell phone carrier freedom. I received a gift card in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
What is an Unlocked Smartphone?
Unlocked phones are not locked into a contract, meaning they allow flexibility with carriers. You can learn more with Best Buy's quick educational video here. The new Huawei Honor 8 in an exclusive Sapphire Blue color is only available at Best Buy.
Huawei Honor 8 Unlocked Smartphone Features
You know the first thing I look for in a phone is the camera quality. The Huawei Honor 8 does not disappoint.
- Innovative bionic 12MP dual lens camera. Enables you to take crisper, more detailed photos day and night.
- Hybrid auto-focus – Contrast focusing, laser focusing, and depth focusing work together to enhance the photo quality in all sorts of condition.
- Dedicated Depth ISP for precise depth focusing.
- Front facing camera is 8M large pixel for amazing selfies.
- World's first wide aperture smartphone camera with instant preview.
Impressive security features:
- 3D Fingerprint sensor with an algorithm for higher security.
- Level 4 security detecting your fingerprint's ridge flow, ridge formation, ridge path deviation, and 3D ridge depth.
- A smart key to allow quick access to your favorite apps.
- 3000mAh 50% charge in 30 minutes and long lasting 3000mAh low power battery.
- 16nm FinFET Plus Chipset gives you up to 12 hours of HD video, 4 hours of 4g browsing, 20 hours of 3g calling, or 56 hours of music.
- Lock-free sim to move between carriers with ease.
- No contract and factory unlocked.
- Supports major US carriers' GSM/UMTS/4G LTE networks.
These features make me think that this phone is a great gift idea. Phones can be difficult to buy for another person, but you can't go wrong with the Honor 8 since the person can activate it with their choice of carrier. From a blogger perspective, I totally approve of this phone. The camera, security, and battery make it quite attractive to a blogger on the go.
