    The slide down for notifications is so natural once you start using it.
    So much so it took me 2 weeks to notice the gesture in the home screen to do it wasn't there in EMUI 5

    One small thing but a very neat power saving feature that I like is this: if you have the camera app open for like 10 or 15 seconds not taking photos, the screen goes blank and you will have to tap on the screen to activate the camera.

    This is a small thing but saves battery power. I soo wish other flagship phones did this too.

    Just discovered another nifty little feature: You can configure the device to take a quick snapshot by pressing the volume down key twice. It takes a quick picture. You can set this up in the camera settings.

    Glad to see some names here that I recognize from the Windows Phone forums.

    I wanted to give WP a break and see if either iOS or Android might suit my current needs better. After a lot of research and comparison of phones, I decided on the Honor 8. I like mostly everything about the phone, other than the grainy pictures on Google Messenger that others have mentioned. I'm kinda working around it by using Google Messenger for most of my texting, but the default messaging app for sending pictures (the quality is a tad better this way).

    Specifics:

    The fingerprint sensor. I've never had one on a phone before, so I'm not used to such a quick and simple way to unlock my phone. And its placement is so convenient. Love it.

    Apps. What can I say...it's Android. I can finally have an official, solid Instagram app without having to be on Windows 10 if I'm using WP (prefer 8.1).

    The camera is excellent. Now if only I could share that quality, or close to it, over MMS. :P

    Physical beauty. Nothing else needs to be said about that.

    Hello there! It's great to see you here too! Glad that you are liking it too.
    I hope that your workaround will work out for you.

    I'm surprised that the phone came with it's own file manager. I'm finding it capable of doing anything I need. I'm able to browse my network including windows pc's and a raspberry pi. No need to install a 3rd party tool that comes with ads.

    I agree! Didn't realize how great this is to have until having it.

    I have the same experience as them. It's very strong.

    I noticed that my LG G3 took more of a hit signal-wise in specific areas - if I was out of town, for example. The Honor 8, in the same area, did not lose signal. At least, not that I noticed. My G3 totally lost signal and I wasn't able to text for a few minutes; but my Honor 8 was okay.

    Something else to like about the 8.

    Using the "Snap Camera" app with the camera 2 API option set it's possible to shoot pics in the RAW format.
    Picture files end up anywhere from 23 to 25 mb in size (maybe higher)
    I've been using Lightroom mobile to edit dng files.
    More cool stuff from this phone.

    Hopes this helps the camera buffs out there.

    One handed mode is more useful than I expected.
    Can't really screenshot it though.

    I'm not sure what else can be said about this phone.

    So far it has performed more than admirably.
    Often I see the words "not perfect, but excellent for what it is at it's price"

    I'm starting to think there is a perfect phone...

    It's definitely my favorite phone in a LONG TIME. I've had so many phones and this just covers all that I need in one.

    No debilitating glitches...no failures...no slowdowns...it's so successful it's close to boring...
    ...and I'm still on 6.0 EMUI 4.1

    This is a phone that is just there 24/7
    Nothing short of pure awesome detailed engineering.

    Wish the globe ran this way.
