Batman, 05 Feb 2016The G8 has OIS, and the Bluetooth module supports Bluetooth LE. On the software side G8 and G8... moreI am pretty sure Bluetooth LE was part of Bluetooth 4.0 - are you saying that a phone that is new is not capable of the LE sync with modern fitness trackers?
The Honor 5x looks to be a far better deal overall. Especially since Huawei/Honor have publicly declared that the Honor 5x will eventually receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow and the latest mediocre and disappointing EMUI 4.1 update. The inclusion of OIS and a slightly curvier design aren't worth another $150 in my opinion. This seems like a strange discontinuity between Huawei and Honor.
DarthSneed, 05 Feb 2016wait a second . . . . why would anyone buy this phone? the 5x is almost $200 cheaper, has... moreI mentioned in another comment, it has OIS and the camera config is slightly different...but thats about it.

Anonymous, 05 Feb 2016Snapdragon 615 with a slow GPU. Crazy to buy this phone. Its just slowTBH, I just bought a Honor 5x with the same SD615, and I have yet to feel it lag at all. I have been quite happy with it (outside of EMUI, which is a bit much for me - but I slapped NOVA on it and have been very happy). I think the main difference is the OIS - and that isn't worth $150 more.

On the software side G8 and G8X will be updated to Marshmallow while 5X will most likely be stuck in Lollipop 5.1.1.
wait a second . . . .
why would anyone buy this phone? the 5x is almost $200 cheaper, has the exact same soc, the exact same display (literally, the exact same, down to the 401ppi), the exact same ram/rom configurations (16gb/2gb & 16gb/3gb), and the exact same fingerprint sensor, microsd expansion capability, etc., etc., etc.!!!!!!!
the honor 5x and the gx8 are the exact same phone!!
am i missing something here?? seriously, check the specs of each device . . . . they are identical!!
