Annoying Chinese bits are annoying lol... Hopefully those texts aren't too intrusive. I live in Europe and quite sure it won't be released here... First time I would own a Huawei device (no app drawer). Would you say the display is beautiful? (popping colors/rich blacks) :)

From reading here and there, it seems that there is a planned US version. which most probably will be regular EMUI 4.1 without Hi Suite. Not sure if hardware will be maintained !!!
For launcher, I tried Google Launcher for couple hours, got back to stock one as it's much better.

Hope this help.

The camera is just 13 megapixel?? it is too low regarding this device?? less than the mate 8?? it should be at least 16 megapixel

Actually Chinese things are coming from HiStore, which anyway will be removed in international version as it's meant to be for China.
Dude, 21 Aug 2016How is the glass on the front, is it gorilla glass? Does it feel like thick strong glass or is... moreActually, I am not familiar with testing screens types, but I can say if you push hard it's not flexible screen. To be more accurate, I have galaxy Note 2 and you can say they are both with same stiffness.
BTW: I made a brightness / colour and image quality between Galaxy Note2 and Honor Note8. With right adjustments you get match. with full brightness for both, Honor note8 wins. (Vivid colour setting of course).

Rated Droid Army, 21 Aug 2016Thank you so much for helpfull review that make more confidence to get this phone . Btw how is... moreDespite it's having 2 speakers grills in bottom, as all Huaweis, it's one speaker on the right. The other grill claimed to be for noise reduction thing.
Sounds loud enough. But if you need quality sound, then you should stay below 65~70%.
Anything above that, it sounds like old mono radios :)
Goldensun3089, 21 Aug 2016Would you mind posting a video review? Sorry dude, not so familiar with V reviews.
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 The p8 Max was always high on my list but it's outdated now.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....
