TechGeekAlways, 11 Aug 2017Your Review, Clearly shows who is Biased. OP5 is no doubt a great phone but it is not better ... moreHonor 8 pro is that great yeah? Honor gave all the reviewers ufs 2.1 storage 8 pro and emmc 5.1 in all retail devices? Why so? It's a pure scam of Honor and all the paid reviewer are not even ready to address it. Forget those speeetest of youtube, in real life it's no where near to OnePlus 5. Honor 8 pro heats much faster as per 90% reviews on Amazon, not all can be wrong. It's much slower to charge almost 2hrs to 2hrs 10min. It has no double tap to wake and rear fingerprint so every time you will have to pick it up. It has no eis at 4k recording, no front cam eis, no Bluetooth 5.0, no Corning Gorilla glass 5, no ufs 2.1 storage, not so fast charging, not so fast updates, not so powerful gpu. It's cheap for a reason. I am by no means a OnePlus fan, but completely scammed this time. It would have been a great phone for the price but people are being conned. Those who have no budget constraints please buy OnePlus 5, if you are low on budget then consider 8 pro, even better don't trust a con company. Earlier Huawei fooled everyone using DSLR pic advertised as one of their phones camera sample pic.

Abhi D, 22 Jul 2017Don't believe everything that is being claimed in here...
Some overjealous Huwaei/honor fans... moreYour Review, Clearly shows who is Biased.
OP5 is no doubt a great phone but it is not better than H8P. I have both and using it from more than 15 days.
Battery: H8P gives me 7h15m of SOT and OP5 comes to 6H. Even with its 2K display if this phone gives this battery backup then its awesome. FYI I am a heavy user.
Display: H8P wins this round hands down. Whatever you mentioned about Amoled display does not stand a chance against such high quality display check 1440p videos on H8P you will then understand.
Charging: OP5 wins this round. H8P takes 1h50m to charge but OP5 is the best in the industry atm.
Camera: OP5 is hit/miss when it comes to bokeh effect. H8P is great in bokeh effect and also has an awesome monochrome mode which is amazing. Both support 4k videos with EIS so its a tie because where OP5 lacks it makes up with its better selfie shooter.
Pricing: Expandable storage option with 128gb in 30k with 6gb ram compared to 33k for OP5 with 64gb and non-expandable storage also makes H8P a winner
Heating Issue: I have tested it on both devices by playing games like Asphalt 8 and taking 4K video. H8P shows temp of 40 degrees and OP5 as 39 degrees. After the update which I got for H8P I got it coming down to 38 degrees. So both devices are same here.
Only issues which people claimed it had Heating (all smartphones heat up so it is not an issue) and Jio calling issue has been fixed in the new update.
Another awesome thing which happened is Huawei had seminars for their users in Chennai recently and next they are planning to have it in Bangalore. In this forum you can discuss give ideas, suggestions and also understand whether those ideas can be implemented in future updates. You can interact with the devs check XDA to find out about the entire questionnaire and the new things suggested for the device where they agreed to implement them.
Android O is promised till end of this year for H8P. Huawei is serious with this device unlike other companies who promise updates and then give it after a year.. Example: OP with OP2.
Gautam, 09 Aug 2017Friends, If first sim is on 4G(data on), is the second sim being forced to 2G or can 3G(voice)... moreIf 1st sim has 4g with data on...then automatically 2nd sim will switch to 3g/2g.
Honor 8 pro works like on whichever sim data is selected, that sim automatically switches to 4G and other sim on 3G or 2G depending upon the availability.

For all in the Philippines, Davao City. Where can I buy Honor 8/8pro/9 phones here? Please help me cause I just moved here.
Battery drain issue has already been resolved!
Disable Google Now App from app settings. It drains all the battery due to keeping the microphone on all the time. Although it doesnt show up in active app list however you will need to disable this app from the settings menu to improve battery timing drastically. My phone's standby timing improved by "8 DAYS".
In paper specs: OnePlus5 > Honor8pro > OnePlus3T
In real life: Honor 8 Pro better choice than the duo Oneplus. Simple, after service safety, huawei got many service centre now and you will not feels too much hassle if got problem later. The device also cheaper than op5, and the dual camera...ow boy u cannot believe how much detail it can capture in a single picture. Among the best dual camera bokeh effects in a smartphones.
