    The newer security update is of course nice to have.

    Yet as a Nova user I see no exceptional benefit for myself with 5.0
    The experience seems the same for me after recovering from the reset.
    From what I see new features have had minimum impact on my experience.

    I'm very happy the update hasn't borked the phone I'm using.
    The honor 8 was a good phone from the start and still is.

    At least emui 5 doesn't revert the launcher randomly like 4.1 did.

    It does for me as soon as I run the new launcher for the first time but don't set it to default. EMUI will put you back to its default launcher. You will have to then set whatever launcher you were using as the default.

    I meant how 4.1 did it after the new launcher was set as default.

    Honor 8 here. I'm disappointed in Emui 5 too. First I noticed that when setting my alarm for the morning, the clock app background is white. It's hard to look at late at night. Then, so many other apps are also white.. I loved the gentle colors, no whites. And now I see that the calendar is just.. not pretty anymore, at all. There's no different colors or icons that helped me tell events apart.
    Everything is so high contrast, black text on white, like it's a printed document. I loved the softness of Emui 4.1. Has the text gotten bigger too?

    I don't really wanna use themes and launchers that run on top of the original ui, don't they unnecessarily use battery life?

    You can install a dark theme, there's a few on XDA.

    This happens to me too!

    Is there a way to turn off the full screen notification that the update was downloaded? It keeps popping up and seriously messes up my usage of the phone (like right now, I was typing this comment, it popped up and I almost pressed the update button because it was where my keyboard usually is). It annoys me to no end, I have no desire to update to 5.0 and I don't want the update to take up storage space and **** me off with constant notifications (don't get me started on how often it pops up while I watch YouTube and other videos)
