Hello this phone working in UK

does this mobile have a custom rom like mokee?
please does any have a link to download a custom rom
thanks for all
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2017does it?It will work on T-Mobile (same network as Metro PCS) UMTS but no LTE I don't think.
LTE on T-Mobile utilises bands 2, 4 and 12
This phone supports bands 1,3,7,38,39,40 and 41.
Honor Note 8 will receive the latest updates to EMUI over the air.
CM is not available on this device. (CM isn't even a thing now I don't think? its called Lineage OS)
There are a couple of custom ROMs, all are based on stock as far as I am aware.
please give me link to download custom rom for this device?
like cm or rr or miui
Love this Phone.. Its fast and way better than the other competitors.
Can we have a MHL of some how , How can i connect it to my Smart TV ..
Great phone but I was wondering if anyone can recommend a decent screen protector that will fit properly, thanks.
I ordered this on 14th on flosmall and received on 21st feb and so far no regrets amazing battery life but I request Huawei to release international firmware so that we can use this device extensively for contacts I used clone it is there any way to register Huawei id outside China region
Used it for 1 month already. This phone is great price for its feature. It survives after a few drop tests.
The good: fast and responsive, good looking screen, visible under sunlight, good sound quality, good voice call quality, good reception.
The not so good: Too many Huawei software to delete, cannot get Google contact to sync, fingerprint sensor at the back is not convenient, black edge is too wide, no black color, no NFC, camera focus is slow, heavy.

With all the reading online, I wanted to avoid having to flash a new rom just to suit our region (never done it & didnt want to mess up). With your info, it sounds good. I'll probably have to manually download updates when they become available then.
Did you get your phone online? It's a pity huawei doesn't bring the honor range to SA, overall they look good and worth the price overseas compared to what's offered in SA.

However, when i log in, i access the international version of the store and am not stuck to the Chinese version.
When i started using the phone, i set SA as the region and a day after i got one OTA update for the OS while using 4G on my mtn line. Since then i haven't received any further updates and am not sure whether its because they have not issued additional ones or that the region has locked me out. but in terms of the play store and app updates everything is working perfectly.
I would have to check a few forums on Honor Note 8 to see if there are any additional OTA system or security updates that i haven't accessed yet.

Okay I see, in regards to it being a Chinese @ first, when you installed google playstore, does it recognise the IP address & give you the SA version of the store? Reason i ask is because im thinking of getting the honor 6x (bln-22) from india, so dont want to be stuck with an India version of the playstore.
Also in terms of updates & security patches, do you receive any via OTA? (On initial setup, what region did you choose, Africa, SA?). I read online, the region/country stuff & it's confusing. Or do you manually have to download & install?
Thanks again! Appreciated
Interested , 10 Feb 2017When you say tweaking, what did you do? I'm interested in getting the honor 6x but not sure if... moreThe Phone i got does not have the international firmware so almost all stock apps are in Chinese and the phone did not have the default google apps installed (gmail, google services, play store, calendar...) So i had to disable a few of the Chinese apps including the defat Huawei app store and install google apps including the play store. Syncing contacts and calendar details needs to be facilitated by installation of additional apps. So thats the minor tweaking i meant.
Trawri, 09 Feb 2017Do you get 4G or 3G in S Africa i get 4G for both MTN and Cell-C networks
