To add in my comment from the post that I made below (just before this post), that Huawei should also release the BLACK version of the Honor Note 8. Why focus on other colors such as gold or silver when this phone has a thin border around its display when it is on. The black color would make the black border less visible.
I really need to talk to the person in charge of making and releasing this phone. I can give the company "common sense" ideas on how to make a lot of money on the Honor Note 8. I will give the "common sense" advices for FREE.
I cannot believe that Huawei does not release this phone in the USA. They would make so much money doing so because the Samsung Note 7 is no more and there are a lot of people that like big phone in the USA. If I was the head of the Huawei Honor Note division, I would focus more on the Honor Note 8 instead of the Honor 8. The Honor 8 is nothing special because we already have Samsung S7 and other high-end 5.5" Android phones (LG V20/Google Pixel, etc...)

Shame since this phone is a beast, and it would would majorly sell in the middle east.

Came in 10 days from Hong Kong to UK. Works on Three giving 3G and 4G. Seems to be Android 6.0 rather than 6.01. Like other people here I'm very impressed with battery life, speed and screen. I also have Sony Z Ultra and the Note 8 manages to be a tiny bit smaller with a larger screen (6.6" instead of 6.4") Implementation of Google Play is good but I have one app (FlightRadar24) that can't see that I've paid for extensions. May be the app rather than the phone. Sound quality with Flacs is good and it can drive my 702 headphones (60 ohm) at a good volume.
To me the screen size is perfect, large enough to read easily and display lots of information, small enough to fit in my jacket or even trouser pockets. It means I rarely have to carry a tablet or laptop. I have a 128gb card installed and 128gb of on-board memory. My first laptop in 1999 was 40gb and cost 1000 UKP. How things change - Amazing!
