AnonD-589455, 25 Sep 2016Hi, is this phone in Malaysia market ? It is already come to malaysia from Lazada.
I'm getting up to 8mps too on T-Mobile. Think I'm actually getting better reception than I was on the S7.
LOVE the screen! My S7 looks like it's for ants now. The fingerprint unlock is crazy fast! EMUI tho... keeps killing my background services even tho they are whitelisted! There are some chinese UI elements that are stuck in chinese. Updates for one, the dialer has a whole page in chinese, just random stuff.
The memory management is really good when it's not killing all the accesory services. Keeps a lot of apps running without reloads.
Camera... is ok. Low light is nowhere near the current Samsung phones. I'd say it's on par with a year or 2 ago. I'll have to take a few crappy pics tonight when it's dark of my dirty livingroom & dogs. :-p
This phone will rock with root! Even better with a generic rom. The phone is crazy fast & much more responsive than the S7. It's really surprising how fast it feels compared to the S7!
Does anyone know if it will come to Greece? Or Europe in general?

I make same and I use the phone as I use to use another European version phone
I replaced my p8max for the honor note. It's slicker and I get way better reception on my carrier. Always check willmyphonework.com before buying to make sure and they were right in telling me i would have better reception on my carrier than with the P8max.
I like the screen a little less than the P8max because it doesn't handle low light as well but nighttime battery management is fantastic so there is very little drain when not in use.
Pet peeves - Nova Launcher doesn't play as well as with P8max, perhaps it's Android V. 6 fault. So I ended up using EMUI which isn't all bad. Voice wakeup which was available in english on my chinese p8max is only available in chinese on the honor note 8. The smart draw feature which was working on an off screen with the p8max doesn't work if the screen is off on the honor note 8.
All in all I'm pleased with it and I feel better with the improved reception...
I think that its better just only because bigger screen. If You need not bigger screen, there is no point to buy Note 8
I Have a Mate 7 and Mate 8, Do you guys think Honor mate 8 is gonna be much better then mate 7 & 8?

... moreThat's nothing new & they were guessing. Honor US division has said there is no US release planned. As I posted before:
We have nothing official stating that the Note 8 is coming to the U.S. We advise that you follow our Twitter (@Honor_USA) and Facebook (usahonor) pages for future device releases. If we release the Note 8, it'll be announced there. We can't speak on international devices. If you have questions regarding Honor international devices, we advise that you contact our international support team at hihonor.com/global. (ED)

Anyone manage to get one rooted yet?
