You can get the chinese version from Ali for only $379 for the 32gb that's including shipping. I'll keep my $100 & stay with the chinese. :-p

Even better if there are roms made but I can live with just root. I'm waiting on a bootloader unlock code to test out a root method, hopefully tonight.
I want the black version!! I didn't realize the silver/grey one was white on the front. Makes the black border around the screen really stand out. Great phone tho! Still loving this thing!! The battery life is nuts! It's about the same as when I had a zerolemon battery on my old Note 3. Can easily get 2 days out of it.
Does this phone offer hotspot? On my Note 4, I am able to turn on my T-Mobile hotspot. I am from the USA.

Anonymous, 30 Sep 2016Is this mobile going to release in India or not please reply for this comment thanks in advanceI am also waiting for international version.. I don't want the Chinese version because I owned Huawei mediapad x 1 Chinese version, it doesn't have Google related software and lots of unwanted Chinese apps, and we can't install some apps like Google+..
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2016Is this mobile going to release in India or not please reply for this comment thanks in advanceYes of course Huawei note 8 International version will available worldwide including India from November 2016, but u can get the Chinese version from online around 400$, but the international version's price will be higher than the Chinese version.

Is this the premium version, and does it work in estonia networks in 4g etc? thanks in advance
All these questions were answered before & only a few posts deep but..
a) 8mbs ish on T-Mobile or AT&T fine for the things you mentioned.
b) There is no US release.
c) No US release, not sold in the US. Aliexpress or other china sellers are you best bet.
I've been following this phone for awhile hoping that it would come out in the USA. So I have a few questions:
a) If I bought it and used it now in the USA, I know I won't get LTE, but does anyone know how "fast" its internet would be. My primary use for internet when I don't have wi-fi are:
- Google Maps
- Music streaming (not a huge deal, but I use it)
- Occasional streaming to my tablet for e-mailing
b) Anyone hear about when it would come out in the USA? I keep seeing the same article that simply says that they *plan* to release it.
c) Where's the cheapest to buy in the USA?
Thanks a lot!

Plays youtube vids great! Loud & gorgeous screen. I've even cast them to a chromecast no prob. The phone is super snappy/fast! It actually makes the S7 feel slow & laggy. I have no idea why there is such a difference, almost the exact same apps are installed on both. So it has to be the hardware or lack of bloatware.
I think I'm getting better reception than my previous Samsung phones got. No LTE but stronger call signal. I'm totally good with the speed it has. If I'm doing anything that needs faster I'm usually near WiFi. Size wise... here is a potato quality usb cam pic of it next to a S7, that's 5.1":
Here are the pictures of my dog in low light. Ignore the not finished paint on the floor boards & all the dog drool on the couch. :-p
