What are the great and not-so-great aspects of the Haier L8? We reviewed it across a wide range of variables by level of interest. If you're wondering whether or not you should get the Haier L8, we recommend that you read this article!

Review of the product design of the Haier L8

Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets

When deciding whether to buy an Haier L8, the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the Haier L8 around and put it away.

Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around

The Haier L8 is easily held with one hand, and its size allows it to be firmly held. It is small enough to be held in one hand together with things like a wallet, but this may be a bit difficult for ladies with small hands.

Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket

It doesn't feel strange even when you put the Haier L8 in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.

Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket

Sometimes taking the Haier L8 out of your pocket doesn't go so well as it gets caught on fabric easily. It's safe to assume that some people will find it stressful that it is difficult to take it out smoothly.

Ease of getting it in and out of your bag

The Haier L8 is a size that allows you to take it in and out of your bag and use it with ease. Also, since it is compact, even if your bag is small it won't get too bulky which is convenient.

Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the Haier L8 by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

Ease of grasping the phone in one hand

To many people, the Haier L8 is of a size which allows it to be operated with one hand. Still, for people with small hands, it may be a bit difficult to do so. It becomes slightly larger when a case is added, and depending on the person, I think this may make it slightly harder to operate with one hand.

The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand

The Haier L8 is light, and I think it can be operated with one hand for a long time without feeling tired. However, it may be a bit heavy for those who are not used to using smart phones. Also, as it is not a heavy smart phone, its weight does not really change when a case is added.

Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand

When using the Haier L8 with just one hand, it is quite difficult to press the button on the screen edge. We suggest you operate the device with both your hands rather than pushing your luck with just one hand.

The size of the buttons on the App

The buttons on the Haier L8 are displayed quite large. Because of this, it is difficult to press something by mistake and it feels very easy to use. Even with games that use small buttons, it's difficult to press something by mistake making it very easy to play.

Ease of typing in letters using the flick function

Keys on the Haier L8 can be pressed even when held with one hand, but your grip may weaken when trying to flick the buttons at the edges. As a result, it may become unstable in the hand when flicking quickly, but it won't be easy to drop as long as you are careful.

Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion

If you aren't being careful it is really easy to mistype when using the Haier L8 with two hands since the buttons are so small. In addition, typing at high speeds is pretty difficult and I can't say its very suited for it.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the Haier L8 is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

Because the display of the Haier L8 is much larger than ordinary phones, characters are displayed quite large. Therefore, it is suitable for reading long bodies of text and exchanging long messages while doing research.

Ease of reading sentences

Since the Haier L8 displays characters smoothly, it can display them beautifully. Even when viewing small characters, the jaggedness of the character outline is not at a level seen during normal viewing and is displayed very naturally. Because of this, it is difficult for your eyes to become tired and make the phone suitable for reading long bodies of text.

The beauty of the overal screen

The screen of the Haier L8 can display pictures and videos quite vividly. This makes it great for enjoying videos and games dynamically. It has a very beautiful screen.

Ease of writing sentences

For the Haier L8, the on-screen keyboard covers part of the screen when typing, but there is sufficient space for operation. Its size is suitable for entering long sentences, but I feel it may be a bit clumsy when editing office documents.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

Whether it be a phone call, mail, or during a chat, the Haier L8 provides smooth performance. Even when using the phone in demanding situations, you can use the phone comfortably since there will usually be no lag.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

If it is just SNS such as Facebook and Instagram, and some internet searches, the performance is enough. As a result, you will hardly ever find yourself frustrated or annoyed when using this phone.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

Even if you start multiple apps at the same time or switch between apps frequently, you will have smooth performance. It can be said that the performance is more than enough if you just do research and SNS.

Summary of Haier L8 performance and functions

The size and weight of the Haier L8

The body of the Haier L8 is 3.0 inches (76 mm) wide, 6.3 inches (160 mm) long, and 0.3 inches (8.4 mm) thick. Also, the screen size is 5.99 inch, and it weighs 140 oz (140 g). Compared to normal smart phones, it has quite an impressive size. It is easy to see and operate due to the large screen, but you can almost forget about using it with one hand. It weighs roughly the same as an average smartphone. Though noticeable, the weight is acceptable and easy to handle.

The battery life of the Haier L8

The Haier L8 has a battery capacity of 4000 mAh. Compared to normal smart phones, it has quite a high-capacity battery.

The processing capability of the Haier L8

The Haier L8 uses the Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 CPU with 1.8GHz×8(OctaCore). The memory capacity is 3GB. With a CPU of quite high performance, it has processing capability way above normal smart phones. It is hard to find cases where its performance is lacking from the perspective of CPU performance, and you can even say it is excessive. In addition, it has slightly more memory, which is more than adequate for general use. Most games can probably be comfortably enjoyed. Although I feel it may be slightly inadequate for 3D games, overall, there is no problem.

The camera of the Haier L8

The Haier L8 has a back camera with 12 MP. The front camera has 8 MP. Its rear camera has slightly better performance compared to normal smart phones. While there are times when I feel it is lacking, it is able to take pictures with satisfactory quality almost all the time. The front camera performance is also roughly the same as a standard smartphone. The image quality for longer distance photography is less than satisfactory, but on the whole, there are no issues with short distance photos.
