Gorilla glass is no needed because everyone buys these screen protectors, so why to put these. Who listens radio from phone own fm radio? You can download radio app and listen whatever u want.
mark pek, 26 Aug 2016Why on their phones no options scheduled on and offBecause Scheduled power off and on is a feature on Mediatek processor. Not in Exynos or HiSilicon processor.

No Gorilla Glass, no FM Radio (both features were on Honor 7), still no OIS, no 4K video recording, but with an IR blaster!? Why did they remove all good stuff for an IR blaster?? It doesn't make any sense. Yes the Honor 8 is pretty damn fast and looks very good for that price, but lacking shatter resistance on both the front and back is still disappointing. It's prone to drops, and when it drops, it dies... (or in the best case scenario the glass protects the inside of the phone but is totally shattered).I don't recommend buying this phone without a case and a screen glass protector (or just a flip case).
Just one note.
No gorilla glass in this price range is a joke.
Had ordered the "flagship" before realizing this.
Let's hope the bend test and scratch will position Honor 8 at least at gorilla glass 3 level....
Hey gsmarena - when are you going to post some detailed review of this phone?
TheProfessor, 24 Aug 2016Honor 8 or Huawei P9 Lite! Please suggest!!! Honor 8
caponix, 13 Jul 2016Where's the smart key ? with the fingerprint sense
What about its battery guys? I read that it is very bad with only about 3-3.50 hours SOT, is this true? Also is its screen brighter than P9?
milobingtay, 25 Aug 2016Wops Â€399, it seems like malaysia really gonna sell it for rm 1899 adyMy fren in Penang (Huawei Seller) say, it might be around rm1699 or rm1799 for Honor 8.. Wait and see.. Honor 8 is very good, fast and full of wow in term of camera and functionality..
Pinkpenguin, 24 Aug 2016yes, it got the B20. More detail the hihonor.com had showed.
https://store.hihonor.com/us/hon... moreMy question was aimed to the specific Huawei Honor 8 specific model. As far as I know, there are several models. You can check the website:
Huawei Honor 8 Dual SIM LTE-A FRD-L04
Huawei Honor 8 Dual SIM TD-LTE FRD-AL10
Huawei Honor 8 Standard Edition Dual SIM TD-LTE FRD-TL00
Huawei Honor 8 Standard Edition Dual SIM TD-LTE FRD-AL00
I have found this website: http://pdadb.net/ and the answer to my question is:
Huawei Honor 8 Standard Edition Dual SIM LTE FRD-AL00
Maybe there are more models but this is enough for me.
Looks like something I'd recommend to my less tech savvy friends who are spooked by the less known OnePlus and ZTE brands. Honor 7 is pretty popular here already and the specs fit the price pretty well.
