    So this device is definitely unique but if you didn't use the Honor 8, what device would you be using and why?

    I wouldn't use Android. I would be done with trying. I have tried everything I wanted to try before and after the Honor 8 and nothing met the bar.

    Even with Mobile World Congress ending, I had some fascination but nothing I would want to try because it's either too big, too tall or too much for me personally.

    S7 Edge. I was using this earlier and sold it later to get Honor 8.

    When I bought my honor 8, my second choice would have been the BlackBerry DTEK60. I used to be a huge blackberry fan before switching to a galaxy s5, so that would have been a good blend. Not regretting the Honor at all though, made the right choice.

    I've used the One Plus X, One plus 3, Samsung S7, Sony X and XZ and I wouldn't go back to any of them.

    If I had to choose I would pick the Sony X. I prefer a mid to small screen size that's why I chose the Honor 8 in the first place.

    To me, the Honor 8 has it all. Great specs, speed and good compact feel without the loss of screen resolution and clarity.

    Great thread topic! It was between this phone or the Asus Zenfone 3... So if I wasn't using the Honor 8, I'd be using that. And I'm sure I would've been happy with the Zenfone 3 - it was a really tough choice between the two.

    Would probably still be using my Moto X 2014 PE. If not that then the Moto Z Play.

    Probably would have been the iPhone SE if not for the Honor 8. When I jumped the Windows ship, I was looking for something with nice specs and smallish size at or around $400. I got the better value, for sure.

    Right now I jump between the Honor 8 and my Mate 9 pro, I use to love big phones but that Honor 8 keeps calling me back, even from the Mate 9 pro with a 2k screen.

    Funny that you mention that. That's exactly the phone I would have stayed on permanently. I still have and use mine.

    I'm curious. Would you mind sharing with us why your Mate 9 is your new best phone!

    honor 8 is still able to compete with the Mate 9.
    Mate 9 isn't a worthy upgrade, not until we have P10 or mate 10 in the future.

    I'd be using either an iPhone 7 (smaller size) or the Moto Z Play as I had the thicker Verizon model briefly and it was a dang good device. I liked the mods and I used them on a regular basis too. If I ever decide to run two phones again I'll end up getting a Z Play. However, if the Mate 9 wasn't $599 I'd choose it but not over the Honor 8 though. I don't want a 5.9 inch screen for my daily phone what so ever. 5.5 is as large as I would consider in place of my Honor 8. Reason I'd go Moto is they have always produced a actually very good high end device for years. Very well proven track record and I like any company that innovative, Moto fitting that bill.

    I agree with you! 5.5" is as big as I'll go, and I really like the looks of the Play. My friend has the Z Force and my other friend has the Play - both are great devices that I wouldn't mind trying in the future. I trust Motorola.
