Best phone overall except the weak SoC that scores on Antutu 84156 only imagine this with sd8201 omg Im already sold
Came in 10 days from Hong Kong to UK. Works on Three giving 3G and 4G. Seems to be Android 6.0 rather than 6.01. Like other people here I'm very impressed with battery life, speed and screen. I also have Sony Z Ultra and the Note 8 manages to be a tiny bit smaller with a larger screen (6.6" instead of 6.4") Implementation of Google Play is good but I have one app (FlightRadar24) that can't see that I've paid for extensions. May be the app rather than the phone. Sound quality with Flacs is good and it can drive my 702 headphones (60 ohm) at a good volume.
To me the screen size is perfect, large enough to read easily and display lots of information, small enough to fit in my jacket or even trouser pockets. It means I rarely have to carry a tablet or laptop. I have a 128gb card installed and 128gb of on-board memory. My first laptop in 1999 was 40gb and cost 1000 UKP. How things change - Amazing!

Does it has fast battery charging function or Quick Charge ability???
I was very interested in this phone but unfortunately Huawei in my country (Israel) will not suply it. I do not see why. I realy hope huawei will start selling it soon even here.
OK. So this device is amazing. One of a very few gripes if they the Google Now launcher will not show up when ovary to change the default launcher. Anyone have any suggestions?
The US division of Honor said there is no US release & they didn't think there was going to be an international version either. Shame too cuz this phone is a little beast! Loving mine!!!

Mine is currently sitting in customs and will be delivered tomorrow! I see that someone was able to root it. Is there any way we can get instructions in lamens terms? Sadly, XDA still has not created a forum for the phone. Is anyone here working on custom roms? I'd love stock or Paranoid Android on this beast.

From Canada eh!, 08 Oct 2016Hi so have you looked at the honor 8 the main phone in the honor 8 series at 5.2" or the honor... moreYeah, I checked them but they are powered by older Kirin 950 processor due to which they can't record 4K videos.
Only other phones with Kirin 955 are P9 and P9 Plus but their camera sensors aren't 4K capable.
Huawei should release a smaller variant of this device with this same Kirin 955 processor and 4K recording ability like this device.
Hi guy's so I got my honor note 8 1 months ago and is just brilliant but I wasn't sure wich kind of gorilla glass have on it and if I need protection for and I ask them and today I got the email back and they let me know the phone has Gorilla Glass 3 protection so is hard enough, no need anything else on the screen so. Just for the guys who have no idea about that detail like coz as I saw nowhere tells what kind of protection has the phone
