Late last month, we told you about a fantastic Android phone you can buy contract-free for just $350, and it packs specs that are nearly identical to Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S7. The Huawei Honor 8 has indeed been an incredible value since the moment it was released, offering Android fans a low-cost alternative to Samsung’s popular flagship at a fraction of the price. The Honor 8 was indeed a fantastic buy at $350, but we have good news for those of you who held out: Huawei’s Honor 8 now starts at less than $300 on Amazon, making it an unbeatable value for any and all Android lovers.

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • Innovative bionic 12MP dual lenses allow you to capture crisper, more detailed photos
  • Wide aperture mode allows you to redefine the focus even after the photo has been taken
  • Secure fingerprint access that can unlock your Honor 8 as fast as 0.4 seconds
  • Smart Power 4.0: 1.77 day battery life for normal usage and fast-charging technology to reach 50% charge in just 30 minutes
  • As seen in Marvel’s Doctor Strange. Please Note: Kindly refer the User Guide before use

And here are a bunch of key details from the Honor 8’s specs:

  • Dual f/2.2 12MP Rear Cameras
  • f/2.4 8MP Front Camera with Flash
  • Kirin 950 Octa-Core Chipset
  • 64GB Storage Capacity and 4GB of RAM
  • Fingerprint Reader
  • 5.2″ Super IPS LCD Display
  • Full HD 1920 x 1080 Native Resolution

It’s unclear if this is a permanent price drop on Amazon or if it’s only available while supplies last. Either way, you’d be wise to snag one as soon as you can.
