Sorry, one more question for those using it on T-Mobile because I didn't understand from the comments:
Does the phone allow texting/calls over wi-fi? Because if so, I don't care if I only get H+, but if it doesn't work over wifi, then I'll have a problem because I have poor reception where I live.
AnonD-582460, 31 Oct 2016Hi Guys I'm using this phone for 1 month. Actually the specifications is Different in same ... moreThere is no way that the Note 8's camera is better than the S7 Edge! That's down right crazy talk! 4k vs 1080p.. Note 8 can't even handle low light... The camera is not the Note 8's strong point.
I'm using this phone for 1 month.
Actually the specifications is Different in same aspects.
The front camera is 8 megapixel not 5 mp.
Resolution 1440 x 2560 pixels with 560 ppi pixel density.
I'm using also thes Samsung S7 edge, but the camera of Huawei Note 8, is more better than s7 edge. I was expecting buy the Samsung note 7 but with this problem of explosion I prefer jump to Huawei phone's. Battery life is amazing the phone performance is amazing. I think I will buy the next mate 9 also.
I am in netherlands waiting for this beast ... should be here in couple of days... only concern is the taxes on it.. have no idea how much they ll charge if anyone had any past experience with taxes on europe import please share
sanso, 16 Oct 2016Best phone overall except the weak SoC that scores on Antutu 84156 only imagine this with sd82... moreI don't know where you are getting that number but I own the note 8 and have ran the AnTuTu benchmark and it scored 97000
Frank, 17 Oct 2016Does anybody try it in Canada? I'm with Bell and I really want this phone, thanksI am and I also use it on bells network, works fantastic.

I'm still looking for a way around the front facing camera not having flash. Any recommendations? Someone mentioned an app called FaceLight. Will have to test. I'm also wondering if a custom Rom Would allow the camera app to flash the screen. Any suggestions would be great. I'm not a big pic person, but it's one of those things that could have been included.
Mrplennium, 28 Oct 2016Sweeet! Thanks!

Let say if you are not getting new message notification, maybe you turn off the protection for that app. You can go to battery manager, under "protected app", if you want to get new message notification, make sure you enable the protection for that app. This is a new function on Huawei's phones to save battery. If you disable the protection for a specific app, that means the app will not refresh itself once yo7 closed it. To get notifications for new message/email, you have to turn on the protection. So the app will still run even you lock you phone. Other Android phones always have all the apps protected, it will use a bit more battery, Huawei's giving you an option to disable it only if you really need to save battery. Hope it helps.

Mrplennium, 28 Oct 2016Is there an option to put the battery percentage beside or in the battery icon at the top? I k... moreYes! In the notification panel & status bar settings. Battery percent next to icon or in icon.
AnonD-596442, 28 Oct 2016Which color you get??! Is it black?! Or just there is no black at all?? Silver/Grey with a white front or gold is your only options. No black! I have the grey.

Yeah the phone does have a horribly active background app killer! It's a pain to work around. Seems no matter how you set it, it still kills most apps. Like this phone needs THAT much battery savings. I'm hoping for a rom to fix that.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2016Yes, you can enable the battery percentage.
Just go to Settings -> Advanced Settings ->... moreSweeet! Thanks!
I also had this question as well for users with the device:
"How are your notifications? Does the phone alert you via the led light when they all come in? Some users are saying they don't always get them. They have to open the app before the notification start popping up. Have you experienced that?"
AnonD-594754, 28 Oct 2016I did. I cancelled my order and purchased it from vopmart.com. It was about the same price and... moreAliexpress is like $25 - $35 cheaper. I remember I got my phone in 4 days with Aliexpress back in September.

Just go to Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Battery Manager, then scroll all the way to the bottom, and turn on the "Remaining battery percentage".

Riffy13, 28 Oct 2016Aaahhhh... yeah... no flash! :-)Is there an option to put the battery percentage beside or in the battery icon at the top? I keep seeing a few videos with no indication in the battery.
Finally got some traction on my device. It's looking like Monday for me.
