starting of the design Huwaer Ascend series design were robust and in the Huawei P8 the design is still as hot as hell . The Huawei P8 comes with a full metal construction which the company claims to be more durable than the steel used in making the S6 and the iPhone 6 .The device id 6.2 mm thin which is quite slim to see . going to the right you can see the volume rocker with the power button both having a brushed metal finish so they would give good amount of tectile feedback.The sim card slot as well as the microSD card are also placed at the right just below the power button. Coming to the bottom you can see the usual micro USB port placement with two speaker grill at both the sides. At the back you can see the rear camera placed at the top left corner with the the dual tone flash and the Huawei branding at the middle . The area at the camera side is made of the gorilla glass 3 which is also used for the display protection . At the front you can see the display with very thin bezels and the company also claims that the device has 78.9% of screen to body ratio which is a good achievement .

Now seeing the processing cores people would be thinking why Huawei did not used the A72 cores and what A53e core stands for and the answer to this question is that the A72 cores uses a lot of power which make them them heat up very high that is an example in case of snapdragon 810 so Huawei tweaked the A52 cores which make them cloaked at 2 Ghz which was not possible in the A53 core which helped them to boost performance without heaing issue as well as good battery consumption as for what the A53 cores are made for. the device runs on a 64-bit chipset so it can take full advantage of lollipop OS.
