Interested in buying this for use in Canada in English. I have seen several listings on ebay and Alibaba. Have you received yours yet? Are you using it in English? How's the experience? Worth ordering or should we wait for the North America variant?

I found it incredibly difficult to go back to smaller displays (like 5.5 inch) and am a bit in love with the Note 8 now. The p8 Max was always high on my list but it's outdated now. This has a lot of things going for it, especially the 6.6" 2K amoled display. I'm dying to get my hands on the gray version which isn't out yet. Really dislike that Honor didn't release all three colors at the same time, a black front is a must for me....
Waiting for this phone to arrive from china. Moving from xperia Z ultra, I just can't use phone smaller than 6 inch anymore. Even the note 7 felt too small, used it for a day and sold it.

Just got it 3 days ago, moving from galaxy note.
I can rate it 5 stars.
Superior screen (compared next to Galaxy Note7) is Big +
Speed and opening applications is awesome.
Battery is robust. 1.5 day heavy use is normal. In simple way, you can't drain the battery within 24 hours whatever you do!
Easy shifting from China mode to GooglePlay mode. still some Chinese popping up.
I started learning Chinese since voice command is just Chinese. lol
Yet you can run google voice, but not through home button.
Now, we talk business use, note with Pen.
Tested different Stylus. Finally Inkredibile with 5 dollar regular stylus are performing outstanding.
Calendar Smemo was super. Have to install Google calendar, but big CON is widget. So installed Month Calendar widget. Both makes perfect combination.
Enjoying free open Music / Videos...
Hope this help.
Small Note: Now my Huawei Watch is so happy. Many new things started working with Huawei Phone. Well done Huawei.
zahc, 19 Aug 2016Got my hands on one of these already. Screen is gorgeous but black border is annoying. Also, ... moreI figure the black border is less annoying with the black face version (gray back side). No 4K was to be expected. At least it has OIS.
Interested, 19 Aug 2016Anyone knows ? : 4GB ram = 4GB DDR4 ram?
Has Google Play Store app installed?
Yes it has DDR4 RAM and performance wise Kirin 955 outperforms Exynos 8890 Octa and it doesn't heat up like Snapdragon 820.
If you buy a genuine international variant of this phone from authorized Huawei resellers then you would find Google PlayStore and services right out of the box but if you buy from shady Chinese resellers then beware they sell unlocked Chinese variants without Google PlayStore.
My only gripe with this phone is it is way too large to carry around.
