Nado , 10 Nov 2016Has anyone managed to fix the notification problem for apps like whatsapp, twitter and emails?... moreI have no idea how to fix the notification issue. It is my biggest problem with this phone. I allowed everything for notifications ton the lockscreen and everywhere else but I'm still not getting notifications from apps like Hangouts, Duo and Marco Polo. I read somewhere that it has to do with the battery management and killing apps in the background but I set all of those apps as "protected" but that didn't work either.
Honor USA claims that Nougat is forthcoming and will have a beta. However, they could not tell me when it is going to happen as the phone has not been released in the US.
Will this work with a USB type C hub that extends the display to a monitor?
For me this is the ideal upgrade from my Sony z ultra.I recommend it if your looking for a fast,classy phablet with a top notch screen.Im in the UK So imported it.No drama or issues,its a fine phone.
Hi,anyone using this phone in Canada on Rogers LTE network, did you guys has any kind of signal lost issue cuz I've had a Huawei P8 max and it support lte bands 7 same as this phone and I have bad experience about 4G connection most of the time i got H+or H and sometime it went down to 3G.So please let me know, thanks in advance
Has anyone managed to fix the notification problem for apps like whatsapp, twitter and emails? Any information if these issues are going to be fixed? Also is the new EMUI 5.0 to huawei note 8, thanks in advance.
frapaul83, 01 Nov 2016Riffy, you rock man. Where did they say there'd be no US/International release though?
Also... moreSomeone emailed Honor USA and they replied that they had no knowledge of a planned U.S. release. I have my contacts loaded just fine you need to download the Google Sync app and set the appropriate permissions to get them loaded on your phone.
Phab Pro 2 looks cool and the Tango camera seems awesome but the phones resolution and processor are inferior to the Honor Note 8 so it depends on what your preference is. Also, there is very little development so far with the Honor Note 8. 3 Chinese roms and nothing AOSP can be found in XDA.

I'd LOVE to see this thing with a stock google rom with no bloat & funk on it. It's got quite a bit of chinese bloat on it & it's crazy fast. Just imagine how fast it'd be with all that gone. :-o
Riffy13, 08 Nov 2016Mine is just as fast as when I got it. You prolly have something slowing down your phone.I believe it is the app that I use to control the screen's brightness level. It's opening really fast now. Oddly enough, even with the slight slow down I experienced, it's still faster and more accurate than any phone I've ever used!

Anyone else with the phone realize that over time, the finger print reader doesn't unlock the phone as lightening fast as when you first configured it? When you pick up the phone from a long deep sleep, it takes a little longer to unlock with finger print. If the screen was recently on and you try it, it is super fast, but if the screen has been off for a while, you get a slight delay before turning on. Not a big deal, just something I noticed. I'm wondering if there's an app causing it...etc

Totally agree with everything you said too. I have the Huawei watch & I want to murder kittens when the notifications stop because the phone killed an app, even tho the app is protected. I'm going to use Titanium Backup & freeze the phone manager app & see if that fixes it! I so wish someone would put together a stock google rom for this phone & totally remove all the chinese apps.
Mrplennium, 03 Nov 2016Never mind, I figured it out! This phone is beyond awesome! I may never use another Samsung de... moreI too have had the S7 Edge and Note 7 & before that iPhones. I was so upset to lose my Note 7 it was the best phone I'd ever had. After watching & reading a lot of reviews I decided on this mainly because the 5.5" screen is just not big enough. I can't tell you how blown away I am by this phone!! The screen is phenomenal! It's speed is amazing, faster than my Edge 7. I really don't feel like I'm using a mid price smartphone at all its so good. The camera is OK, yes in low light it struggles, and trouble with not notifications is a pain but other than that it's perfect! I'm going to be torn in two when the Samsung Note 8 is released next year, I have no idea what to do now I've experienced this!
Mrplennium, 06 Nov 2016I received my device last Wednesday and I'm havingthesameissueas well. My whatsapp notificatio... moreI've been playing around most of the day trying to get notifications to work for emails, I have several accounts. All of a sudden they sprung into life on the app I installed first! It's frustrating, particularly as I have a Huawei Watch which Without Notifications From The Phone Is Pretty Useless! I am getting more than I was though so hopefully over the coming days I'll get more.
