Experience powerful all-round performance with the New Huawei Y8s

Published

on

Huawei’s Y series smartphones are designed to provide users with access to a powerful smartphone experience even at a friendlier price point. The newest addition to the series, the HUAWEI Y8s continues in the same tradition and brings to the table excellent handheld night photography with a 48MP AI Dual Camera system and powerful all-round performance, all in a stylish design. We got our hands on this new smartphone and here is what we think.

48MP AI Dual Camera

Smartphone cameras are the rage these days, with certain smartphone brands focusing more on the camera more than other features. Huawei is known for putting some seriously powerful camera setups in its smartphones and it continues this trend with the HUAWEI Y8s. Packing a 48MP AI Dual camera setup, which consists of a 48MP main camera and a 2MP Depth Camera, users can take stunning photos and videos complete with rich aperture effects.

However, the highlight of this camera setup is in fact its low-light capabilities. The HUAWEI Y8s’ Handheld Night Mode is a class of its own, mainly attributed to the increased light intake from the large sensor and AI algorithms that remove noise and stabilize the image, all resulting in a perfect shot in dimly lit environments as well. All it takes is scrolling to the Night Mode on the camera app and you can take images with up to six-second exposure. We tried this on city skylines and even in outdoor conditions at night and were stunned by the results.

 

The 48MP AI Dual Camera setup also delivers solid results when it comes to shooting in slow motion at 480 fps to capture minor details in perfect slow-mo, while its Portrait Mode ensures beautiful portrait shots with rich bokeh effects that blur the background lights in designs and patterns. However, a key player here is the Master AI which not only assists in these shots but also recognizes over 500 scenes in 21 categories, including blue sky, snow, plants and more, which then optimizes each shot to come out perfectly.

Meanwhile, upfront the HUAWEI Y8s comes with a dual camera setup as well. The AI Dual Selfie Camera comes with an 8MP main camera and a 2MP Depth Camera, which contributes towards real-time bokeh effects for selfies, while the AI noise reduction algorithms optimize brightness and reduce noise for low-light selfies.

 

Bigger View, Trendy Design

At a first glance you will notice that the HUAWEI Y8s has quite a large display. This massive 6.5-inch HUAWEI Notch FullView Display boasts an FHD+ resolution of 2340 x 1080 and is optimized for a more immersive viewing experience. Try watching movies, series or even play games on the smartphone and it is this display that makes the experience much better. Additionally, the screen brightness can also be adjusted under the sunlight for clearer viewing of text and images at any time of the day. The display also has a TÜV Rheinland-certified Eye Comfort mode that can help you relieve eye fatigue by lowering the intensity of blue light emitted from the screen.

Meanwhile, on the back, the design ethos of the HUAWEI Y8s truly stands out. This gorgeous back panel comes in two simple and chic color options while boasting a 3D arc design for a comfortable grip. The color variants of Midnight Black and Emerald Green depict a dark night and elegance respectively, while its distinguished manufacturing process is evident in the final finish. This design is also quite dynamic, and gives a different look depending on the angle from which light strikes. The back of the phone is topped off with the fingerprint sensor as well. Alternatively, users can also use the Face Unlock 2.0 feature to secure their HUAWEI Y8s.

 

 

Powerful Performance

The true quality of a smartphone comes down to its everyday performance and this is where the HUAWEI Y8s shines. Packing in 64GB of expandable storage up to 512GB and 4GB of RAM, users not only have enough space for photos, videos, files and games but also enough RAM to have everything run smoothly.

 

A key focus of course is its battery life. Budget smartphones usually tend to have smaller batteries, however, the HUAWEI Y8s comes with a large 4000 mAh battery that is good to last for watching movies, attending video conferences or even through everyday tasks. This is topped off by the AI Power Saving Technology that brings to the table intelligent app management to further enhance battery life.

At the heart of it all, lies the Kirin 710, an octa-core CPU that includes four large Cortex-A73 cores and four small Cortex-A53 cores for faster all-round performance, while still maintaining efficiency. Paired with EMUI 9.1, performance is boosted while gaming with GPU Turbo while system performance is enhanced with the intelligent Extendable Read-Only File System which improves random read speed by up to 20% and saves 14% storage.

 

EMUI 9.1 also brings to the table fun features that enhance user experience, including a Video Ringtone feature that allows you to record a short video in place of a ringtone for each contact.

Each HUAWEI Y series smartphone, is unique in its own right. It is safe to say that the newly launched HUAWEI Y8s continues in the same pattern and brings to the table a new smartphone that aces in low-light photography, boasts a stunning display and features powerful performance all in a stylish body, making it easily one of the best choices for someone who is looking for a brand new smartphone.

Eye Care

Maintaining good eye health is essential at every stage of life. From childhood to old age, our eyes require different types of care to ensure they function properly and stay healthy. Here are some essential eye care tips tailored to different age groups:

Infants and Toddlers (0-3 Years)

  1. Regular Check-ups: Schedule regular eye exams to detect any early signs of vision problems. The first comprehensive eye exam should be done at 6 months of age.
  2. Monitor Development: Keep an eye on developmental milestones related to vision, such as tracking moving objects and recognizing familiar faces.
  3. Protect from UV Rays: Use hats and shades for babies to protect their sensitive eyes from harmful UV rays when outdoors.

Children (4-12 Years)

  1. Annual Eye Exams: Ensure children have annual eye exams to monitor their vision as they grow. Early detection of issues like myopia (nearsightedness) is crucial.
  2. Screen Time Management: Limit screen time and encourage regular breaks to reduce eye strain. Follow the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break and look at something 20 feet away.
  3. Protective Eyewear: Encourage the use of protective eyewear during sports and recreational activities to prevent eye injuries.

Teenagers (13-19 Years)

  1. Balanced Diet: Promote a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and omega-3 fatty acids to support overall eye health.
  2. Avoid Smoking: Educate teenagers about the risks of smoking, which can lead to serious eye conditions like macular degeneration and cataracts.

  2. Computer Vision Syndrome: For those who spend long hours on computers, use ergonomic setups, take regular breaks, and consider blue light filtering glasses.
  3. Sunglasses: Wear sunglasses that block 100% of UV rays to protect eyes from sun damage, which can contribute to cataracts and other eye conditions.

Middle Age (40-59 Years)

  1. Presbyopia Awareness: Be aware of presbyopia, a natural age-related condition that affects near vision. Consider reading glasses or multifocal lenses if needed.
  2. Monitor Health Conditions: Manage chronic conditions like diabetes and hypertension, which can affect eye health. Regular eye exams can help detect related complications early.
  3. Protect from Blue Light: Use blue light filtering glasses and reduce screen time to minimize the risk of digital eye strain and potential retinal damage.

Seniors (60+ Years)

  1. Frequent Eye Exams: Increase the frequency of eye exams to at least once a year to monitor for age-related eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
  2. Maintain a Healthy Diet: Continue to eat a balanced diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that support eye health.
  3. Fall Prevention: Ensure living spaces are well-lit and free of hazards to prevent falls that could lead to eye injuries.

General Eye Care Tips for All Ages

  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to maintain good eye moisture and overall health.
  • Avoid Rubbing Eyes: Rubbing can introduce germs and cause irritation or infection.
  • Practice Good Hygiene: Always wash hands before touching your eyes, especially when inserting or removing contact lenses.
  • Regular Breaks: Follow the 20-20-20 rule to prevent eye strain from prolonged screen use.

Conclusion

Eye care is a lifelong commitment that changes with each stage of life. By following age-appropriate eye care tips and scheduling regular eye exams, you can help ensure that your eyes stay healthy and your vision remains clear. Prioritizing eye health is essential for maintaining overall well-being and enjoying a high quality of life.
