Just got mine Chinese "big boy" last Wednesday here in The Netherlands. Had some time to get used to EMUI and install Google Play Store & other beloved Google apps. After mine previous Nexus 5 (2013) with pure Android 6.01 that was a little bit a struggle. But such a decent screen and specs makes this phone lovable for it's price, which is here ~400 Euro for 128Gb version (so long 800 Euro Pixel XL!). Made some comments on Cyanogenmod unofficial forum, to get a support of this phablet. We'll see, when it becomes popular enough.
As for benchmarks (Atutu and BasemarkOS II), Honor Note 8 lays in between Nexus 6P and Galaxy S7. But the screen, mmm! :) And the battery!
So far the connectivity in NL is working fine for Vodafone and KPN (dual sim). Though it shows 4G in the status bar, I am not sure if it's LTE or not. Don't really care. Speed test shows 82.25 Mbps download and 46.71 Mbps upload, which is twice bigger than mine home wifi!
Got mine from vopmart. Can anyone recommend a glass protector? One I got on Amazon doesn't fit right. Using mine on t-mo btw, all's good, really happy with it so far! Still needs to be de-Chinese-ified though
Frank, 17 Oct 2016Does anybody try it in Canada? I'm with Bell and I really want this phone, thanksUsing in the USA, works on AT&T HSPA+ which is 4G, but no LTE support; who cares the HSPA+ is fast enough for daily use.
Was looking for a phone like this for a long time and thanks to the Note 8 now I can finally stop the search.
Checking on frequencycheck.com shows this phone has all the bands for at&t LTE but its possible that a future firmware update will allow usage.
Anyways, if you want to use this phone in the US with AT&T or Straight Talk (blue att sim), go for it! it will not disappoint.
With its stats and a Mali 880 GPU + 4Gb ram and dual band AC WiFi it needs a micro HDMI out and would out pace most media boxes on the market, not sure how the CPUs Plural would compete with Octacore Arm S912 (doubt favorably) but hardware decoding of RV 9,10 & 265 format I bet it could do great. My Note 7 does even on mobile data 4G LTE
Techlover, 18 Oct 2016I cannot believe that Huawei does not release this phone in the USA. They would make so much ... moreIn USA at current. Using a recalled Note 7. THEY REALLY WANT IT BACK!!! I would love the screen size on the Honor 8. I would rather have the Mate 9 256/6Gb but with Honor 8 screen size. The dual SIM / Expandable memory would come in very handy moving from place to place & Pixel XL is only 5.5 inch with no Dual SIM
For those looking for roms and what not - here you go:

If someone can find a way to make an AOSP rom and get rid of EMUI, that would be amazing. I'd do it myself but I do not know how.

It might take some time though because right now, they just started selling Honor 8. Hope before end of this month, Honor Note 8 will be available too.
