Huawei G8

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT - Peter Chu

a tad bit of lag, while we were play­ing Shooty Skies – es­pe­cially when the screen started to get congested with en­e­mies and pro­jec­tiles. But apart from that, apps in gen­eral were quick to load and close, and they ran as smooth as but­ter.

What we par­tic­u­larly liked about the G8, though, was its fin­ger­print sen­sor, which is lo­cated right below its 13MP f/1.8 rear cam­era mod­ule. It's fast, ac­cu­rate, and we didn't need to con­sciously re­mind our­selves to ex­plic­itly po­si­tion our in­dex fin­ger right on its cen­ter for it to work. In fact, the G8's fin­ger­print sen­sor works in­tu­itively enough to the ex­tent where we'd be will­ing to use it in place of our trusty PIN code lock. The fin­ger­print sen­sor of the G8 isn't just a one trick pony, mind you, as it can be used for a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent pur­poses as well, such as an­swer­ing calls, cap­tur­ing pho­tos, and bring­ing down the no­ti­fi­ca­tions panel.

And that leaves us with the G8's bench­mark scores. It man­aged to at­tain a score of 3,438 on PCMark; 22,267 on Quad­rant; and 36,364 on AnTuTu. Over on 3DMark, the G8 scored 115 for the Sling Shot ES 3.0 bench­mark, 5,424 for the Ice Storm Ex­treme bench­mark, and 7,773 for the Ice Storm Un­lim­ited bench­mark. Fi­nally, the G8 com­pleted the Epic Citadel bench­mark on Ul­tra High Qual­ity with an av­er­age fram­er­ate of 30.8 fps.
