It will lock the phone when you close the case which is ideal if you just happen to put it down for a few seconds. It won't interfere with the signal strength. Depending where you like (I am in the UK) will depend on the network coverage and the band width. Find a sim card that offers a lot of network coverage. Do your research.

Currently there are top of the range Apple and Samsung products costing around £800. The only difference is the 6GB ram+. The Huawei still punches above its weight with a massive screen and large battery. I did so much research: took me 5 months of differing and still came back to this beast of a phone. It punches above its weight and makes other models feel and look so overpriced. I hope they bring out another version with 8GB Ram and a possible 7" screen. I can watch so many TV neetworks across the globe without having to sign up to broadband. I am saving hundreds per year and my network provides me with 20GB data a month. Why do I need broadband. I can tether my data to my laptop and do exactly the same.
I am using this phone , and everything about it is amazing , battery last for 2 days heavily use with the mobile data on and auto rotate , charges from 10% to 100% within 1 hour 30 minutes. not very heavy compared to its size , amazing resolution , front camera have amazing quality and the rear camera as well . the only negative thing is the video camera stabilizer doesn't work so great . All in All i advice everyone to buy this phone specially if you enjoy using samsung phone
Trawri, 16 Apr 2017Do you think the hard plastic case is good enough against dropping the phone without damage.It gives some endurance it was dropped accidently but still OK but due to heavy mobile it should be handled with care

1- I'm using a metal case & I think it's weakening the signal and the wifi reception
2- The screen is so sensitive keeps dialing numbers when I put it in my pocket
Trawri, 03 Apr 2017Finally got the phone over 8 weeks waiting it's getting H+ with MetroPCS & like my friend ... moreBest of luck I am using it it's magnificent peace of technology value for money every thing is amazing in this price bracket
Finally got the phone over 8 weeks waiting it's getting H+ with MetroPCS & like my friend here said I got the nougat right away
got the EMUI5.0 update yesterday OTA.
It's Nougat EMUI.
Went like a dream.
I'm un-rooted. No reason to root it actually...
Highly recommended. Had it since November. Replaced my P8Max which was good but had reception problems.
Will this be Google Daydream compatible? Quite close to the specs of Mate 9 Pro.

Would you take this or the Xiaomi mi 5s plus?
Every phone has its own pros and cos though the only thing holding me back from the mi 5s plus is Xiaomi's UI, and the only thing holding me back from the honor note 8 is the gpu as i have read some bad reviews. All what is care about is screen and performance, i barely use the camera for example therefore it's not a deal breaker for me.
AnonD-642699, 07 Feb 2017can I use this phone in Netherland?Hi i live in rotterdam
I have this phone since few months and it works like a charm best signals at work where samsung had zero bars
Hello this phone working in UK
And can get Google Play Store?
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.
