I have checked everywhere and just cannot workout why I cannot get 4G- I purchased mine from WONDAMOBILE who continually tell me the phone is LTE compatible with all networks apart from 02 but I havent once received 4G on any sim card I have tried, and it so far should have been compatible with 3 different frequencies that I have utilised- let me know if you get any joy, its the only downside of the phone as its amazing, but having slow data speed is quite annoying when I am out and about

How about Google Play and apps(Gmail, maps.. etc)? Was it pre-installed? I'm also on Rogers' network but in Montreal. I have the mate 7 presently and Google Play services and store came pre-installed.By the way, is World of tanks blitz available for the note 8? Any help would really be appreciated. Thx.
There is only on version of the phone. It is the Chinese one. Some system apps can't be uninstalled w/o root. So disable the apps that you don't want. I do not recommend disabling Phone Manager because doing so causes problems with the phone.
Hello there, can anyone help me please? I just received mine but it's got some chinese apps that I can´t delete and even though I set it to English it still has some chinese characters.
How can I get rid of this and have it as a European version of EMUI?

AnonD-500535, 11 Nov 2016Hi,anyone using this phone in Canada on Rogers LTE network, did you guys has any kind of sign... moreI'm using it on Rogers in Vancouver, BC. This Note 8 only uses Rogers B7 LTE band. B7 LTE coverage on B7 seems 100% in most urban areas. I'll drop to 3G at home and while driving in some areas.
If you've used a previous phone with only B7 LTE, this phone will be the same.
Hi, can anyone help me please? I have imported to UK and have not yet been able to receive 4G on any sim card or network, and I have tried EE and Vodafone which support mutliple bands. This is the only downside to this phone which has been amazing so far.

Stop killing apps in background + notification? Easy - Battery manager - Power plan - disable mode Smart and enable mode Performance !
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2016Has anyone heard when the Honor Note 8 will be available in the U.S.?Honor USA said that they have no knowledge of any plans to bring the phone stateside. If you want it, you can purchase it from eBay, Vopmart, Aliexpress or Gearbest. It will be the Chinese version which is the only version that exists at the moment.
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.
