    What promotion is that?? Sign a contract?

    No service contract.

    $408 retail via dpp -$200 coupon "200and" - 300 trade in value + $110 cost of cracked screen g4.

    Dpp is set over 24 months but you can pay off the balance anytime after it ships.

    Another like even tho it's a common thing these days.

    When they say "Fast Charging" they mean it!
    7% to 96% in 65 minutes...much faster than my Zenfone2 which I thought was fast.
    Wish I had a fast mobile charger that was guaranteed to work for this phone.

    I posted some links in the Chargers thread. I like the Pleson one as it does charge at the 5V/2A requirement.

    If you download the Ampere app, you should be able to see the charging speed with the screen on.

    Volume and power buttons are in a better spot for me on the 8.
    With the h5X I often touched the power button accidentally.

    With the fingerprint sensor I almost never touch the power button.

    Nah, the 5x is significantly larger so the buttons are noticeably higher up from the bottom of the phone.

    Music streaming via DAC or headphone amp sounds good to me.
    I mention this because one of the video reviews mentioned music from the honor 8 was weak with buds/headphones.
    My experience has been different as far as listening to music.

    I think it's cool that when you turn it off, it asks you if you still want your alarms to go off or not, rather then forcing it to go off.

    The camera and built in editing features are very well done in my opinion.
    I would say the honor 8 might be a photographers go to as far as smartphone cameras in this range.

    Also the quality out of the box are stellar.
    Finish on this device is top notch.

    ...Another thing I like is how this phone has emulated the feel of the Sony Xperia Z3 with many improvements over the Z3.
    I initially bought the Z3 twice and sent both phones back because of things like the camera and no updates beyond lollipop for the T-Mo locked models.

    Everytime I clutch the 8 and use it I'm reminded of what Sony could have been.

    I can't remember which thread I mentioned this in, but I love being able to hide apps! I have a lot of apps hidden, and I hide and unhide certain apps when needed.

    I agree about the built in editing features of the camera as well.
