Jun 2, 2017

The Honor 8 Pro packs a big punch when it comes to sheer performance. The phone’s 4,000 mAh battery, stunning display, and Kirin 960 processor make the phone a real dream for mobile gamers, too.

How do you make the most of those killer specs, though? These four games will show you what the Honor 8 Pro is truly capable of.

1. Perfect for clicking – SPACEPLAN

The Honor 8 Pro boasts a beautiful 515ppi Quad HD display. The screen is big enough for serious gaming, but small enough to fit in your pocket. If you thought you needed a tablet to get the most out of your mobile games, think again. The Quad screen is super responsive, too, which is incredibly important for mobile gaming, especially when playing those idle clicker games.

Devolver Digital’s latest game, SPACEPLAN, is the perfect clicker game to take advantage of the Pro’s unique display. The game has beautiful graphics that will look great on the display, and it’s a clicker, meaning you’ll be tap, tap, tapping for a good long while.

2. Stunning visuals – Monument Valley

If it’s gorgeous, cinematic visuals you seek, the Honor 8 Pro will not disappoint. The Quad HD display features advanced color management that will render your games with the highest fidelity. You can soak in every detail.

Monument Valley is the best game to put these features to the test. It’s easily one of the most beautiful games on the mobile market, with its bright colors and stunning environments.

3. Lagging solutions – Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

No one likes lag. In fact, the problem has spawned an obsession with framerates among gaming enthusiasts worldwide. That likely won’t be a problem with the Honor 8 Pro, with its lightning fast 8-core processor and Vulcan API, which specifically works to cut lag.

Test it for yourself with some of the most demanding Android games. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, a console and PC port launched last generation, is easily one of the most punishing games for mobile hardware. That shouldn’t be a problem for the Honor 8 Pro, though, thanks to its hefty processing power.

4. Epic playing time – Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Battery life can be just as important as performance for mobile gamers, and the Honor 8 Pro performs in that area as well with 1.5 days* of battery life at full load. That gives you plenty of time for gaming before you have to charge.

Bioware’s Knights of the Old Republic is the perfect game to put that impressive battery to the test. Clocking in at 40 hours, this mobile port is a fantastic and faithful remake of one of the most famous western RPGs in recent years.
