The UHANS i8 is Giving Samsung a run for its money

January 17, 2018 3

The UHANS i8 is a budget device from UHANS a company based in China. It features an Incredible build and really impressive specs for it’s very affordable price of $150.

But why have i called this device incredible?


The Build

The UHANS i8 has an undeniably incredible build. With a metal frame sandwiched between two glass panes, i was instantly impressed when i took this phone out of its box. It ha d a really good feeling heft to it, the kind that gave you assurance that this device wasn’t a rush job from another ‘Chinese’ company.

It feels much better than the Galaxy S8 in my opinion, has excellent build materials and very sturdy feel to it, the metal felt cold to the touch and i found myself always wanting to pick up the phone.

to sum it up i’ll give the UHANS i8 a 9 out of 10.

The Display

The UHANS i8 comes with the new 18:9 aspect ration 5.7 Inch HD+ display size that most phones in 2018 wil definitely come with. The resolution however is the only downside to this display as it’s got vibrant and really good color calibration.

I wish they would have made the UHANS i8 a 1080p screen. But nonetheless it’s very useable.

Battery, Charging and Software

The UHANS i8 comes with a 3500MaH battery that easily lasts a day with moderate to heavy use. In my usage of the phone i consistently got between 25% and 30% of battery life left at the end of my day which is typically around 10:30PM.

If the battery life doesn’t cut it for you, then you’re covered by the included USB Type-C charger that can get your device from 0 to 100% in just about 2 hours.

The UHANS i8 comes with android 7.0 Nougat built in and is almost barebones when you first launch the device. This is a good thing in that you do not have a lot of bloatware and the phone is almost like a google phone except for it’s very lightweght skin over android. If the UI doesn’t cut it for you, you cans easily install a third party launcher like Nova launcher and you still have a great phone.

Other features

In addition to all of the above the UHANS i8 also comes with a super fast fingerprint scanner and offers a 16MP + 3MP dual camera system at the back of the device.

It’s also got an 8MP selfie camera in the front of the device.


All of these goodness’s come at a very affordable price of $139.99 if you buy it here at At this price point one may wonder why you need to spend $850 – $1000 on some of the ridiculously priced mobile devices out there.


In conclusion i’ll rundown some of the specs of the UHANS i8:

5.7 Inch HD+ 18:9 Display
64GB Internal Storage
Octa-core MediaTek MT6750T CPU
3500mAH Battery with fast charging
4G LTE Data
USB Type C charging port
No earphone jack
Fingerprint scanner
Dual rear 16MP + 3MP cameras
8MP selfie camera

This is an absolute steal and a device you’d be very happy with.

    Did you test calling and browsing on 3G & 4G with our networks? There is no information on the bands it supports.

      I’ve tested it on 2G and 3G networks but have not been able to test on 4G yet. Will do that and revert. But for the bands, these are what you’re getting:

      2G – GSM, 850/900/1800/1900MHZ
      3G – WCDMA 900/2100
      4G – FDD Band 1/3/7/8/20

      Will do a test with the ntel network to see if it works
