I am with T-Mobile, and I have HSPA+ (this is some what between 3G and 4G). I tested it on watching a HD movie, no lag at all. the download speed is more than 700 KB/s, so guys, don't worry about the 4G Lte, I mean, 700 KB/s is really enough for you to do most of the things.
They are not saying much about any other release other than their current China release. I've asked on both Huawei's & Honor's facebook, forums, twitter, etc... Not one answer. Nothing about a international version or US version or no plans for anything but China. Nothing! They're kinda missing a window here in the US with the Samsung battery news & the Phab 2 releasing soon.
I wonder if you could get by on 2G or 3G in the US with this phone on T-Mobile or AT&T. WiFi is around a lot, but not everywhere. Hate to have to get one of the Phab 2s when they come out, when this phone has such better specs & looks.
Looking at the specs... it only has LTE 1, 3, 7, 38, 39, 40 & 41
In the US we use.. 2, 4, 5, 12, 13, 17 25, 26, & 41. That's only one Sprint band that overlaps. :-(
TheNomad, 17 Sep 2016Does it work on us LTE bands? I have heard otherwise. I checked the specs sheet. It's lte bands are pretty limited, mostly for Asia. Any app I can use to check which bands work?
Just got the phone 2 days ago. Haven't tested the camera fully yet. Everything is great, lots of simple and useful customization options.
The biggest problem I can find, can't use 3g / 4g on both sim cards. Only 1 which is a bummer.
I so want this phone! Wish they'd release this phone in the US already! Or at least not disable the bands we use on the international version.
Got my phone 3 days ago, switched from iPhone 6 Plus, I was waiting for iPhone 7 Plus but was disappointed by the announcement, NO NEW DESIGN...
Okay, let's get back to this phone, the 6.6" display is GREAT, photo is slightly better on iPhone 6 Plus. I was an Apple fan, but after I received this phone, I LOVE HUAWEI/HONOR.
I (personally) believe that this phone worth more than $700...
Dino, 14 Sep 2016Thanks for Your reaction. On the contrary, I would like to buy this phone, now I have galaxy n... moreI won't put any photos via Internet coz I don't have enough time and to be honest the phone is brilliant and please believe me I'm fusy person so I don't like evrething but the phone is moving good as any other big brands like Samsung or Apple and buy the way my wife has iPhone 6S and eaven my wife tells me like iPhone is sheet compared to my phone and Huawei is 390 euro and I paid for iPhone 700 so
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2016Can you tell me - what is the screen glass? Because I had a bed experience with other Huawei p... moreI have no problem with the glass as I keep the original one with is coming with apply allready on the screen but if you worry about it you can buy and apply yourself antiglare glass from eBay and you got bullet proof, scratches proof and many more, but this is not a problem coz a screen protector is about 2 euros and save the problem and the phone is comming with phone protection in the box as well so the phone won't be damaged easy
Rassendyll, 15 Sep 2016Just received yesterday. I thought 2k video recording, but only 1080p. Congratulations! Could You please be more specific about real-using performance and post some camera shots in full resolution? What phone did You have before this one? Thanks in advance!

(Waiting to see others) .
What about real performance? Not games, but real-life perfomance? I found at P9 Plus review something disturbing in here at gsmarena: "The Huawei P9 Plus, just like the P9, begins to experience tiny, but noticeable lag once you fill its homescreens with apps. App switching isn't smooth either, especially if you are swapping heavy apps. There are also some unexplained stutters which occur in both light and heavy-duty games. It might be the GPU, or may be poor handling of resources."
And Note 8 has same chipset configuration but much higher resolution!
