Last month Huawei launched the GX8 in America with a $350 price tag. With upper-mid tier specs, a fingerprint reader, and an all metal body that's not a bad price for what you are getting. Unfortunately for Huawei, there are a LOT of really good phones in the $300 dollar range and at $350 it's kinda hard to recommend it, especially considering the phone is currently running Android 5.1.
Fortunately, the price on the GX8 just dropped on Newegg by $50 to $300. On top of that, Newegg is throwing in a $50 gift card to sweeten the deal, dropping the effective price to $250. At that price, the GX8 is a much more compelling option. Here's a rundown of the specs and pertinent info from Newegg's listing.
- Screen: 5.5in 1920x1080
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 616
- OS: Android 5.1
- Memory: 2GB
- Storage: 16GB (expandable)
- Cameras : 13 and 5 MP
- Battery: 3000mAh

- Finger Print Reader
Not bad for $250, eh? The device is fully compatible with both AT&T's and T-Mobile's network (including band 12).
