Huawei's 'Honor 8' is making a run at becoming one of the top competitors for Android-compatible high-end smartphones. The sleek, thin, and glassy device combines elegant style with the best processing power that Huawei has to offer, giving it the performance capabilities that many Android users demand.

In terms of design, the Honor 8 is easily comparable to other high-end smartphones like the OnePlus One. Its screen and backing are covered in '2.5 D' glass, or glass that tapers at the edges, giving it a curved look. The phone is also framed by a subtle metal wiring, adding a hint of toughness to the soft aesthetic.

In terms of hardware, the phone's most impressive feature is its dual camera. Each equipped with identical 12 megapixel sensors, the cameras allow consumers to change focus and aperture after taking a photo.

Huawei's newest foray into the world of high-end smartphones should raise the stakes for designers and engineers in the industry.
