Honor 8 best in camera , games , and ram or not the golden colour is beautiful or not ???
So, after two years of faithful service I switched from Galaxy S6 to Honor 8. I was stoked because it looks really good and it seemed smooth and has a much better camera. It does look good, the camera is really good, but it is not smooth.
- The back-mounted button / fingerprint reader is pretty much useless. You have an option to customize what the button does but the options are very limited. The buttons placement is pretty stupid as well.
- The power and volume buttons are placed on the right side, which is annoying for me that holds the phone in my left hand and can't quite reach the buttons with a normal grip. I'm right handed and typing is a lot easier with my right.
- The touch isn't as responsive as the S6. Many times when you scroll and tap it doesn't stop right away. Mounted a tempered glass and the touch is even less responsive now.
It does have some good things though. Very nice battery management functions, and battery life. The S6 was horrible in this respect. The Honor 8 is faster and looks better. Much better camera, as stated. But I do miss the easy to use interface of the S6.

I'd call myself an advanced user and Honor 8 gives me much more power and memory then any Samsung in this price range would. From my pov v7 or v8 software version is of secondary importance
Honor 8 is good phone at his market value and seems like good choice but be aware that software is v7 and never gonna be v8 because of "processor is too low for new version". All in all, good phone but for advanced Android users that is big NO! This is my 3rd Huawei phone and last one because this is my 3rd that actually can be upgraded but Huawei doesnt want to do that. If there is anyone who believe them that this phone cant run Oreo, there are v8 for Honor8 that is custom made and works fine.

Predrage93, 03 Apr 2018Is there gonna be oreo update for this phone?@Predrage93
Huawei have an appalling record when it comes to updating their phones so I doubt it. I have a Honor 8 and a Honor 8 PRO. Both phones are still stuck on Android 7; neither of them ever got v7.1.1 or even v7.1. The Honor 8 is stuck with security level dated Aug 2017 and the Honor 8 PRO is even worse as the security level is July 2017. I wouldn't recommend Huawei phones to anyone.

SAR do not reflect real life usage, only one fixed scenario. Even if some other mobiles score lower at this laboratory tests, the way someone uses its phone can amplify or lower this value even more
Now I have Honor 8 . In my experience performance and features are good. But in this phone have a big negative factor SAR value is around the regulatory limit. im suggesting it's not good to long use
