    I wonder if side loading youtube from another device would make any difference
    How does one accomplish this?

    I played some videos on YouTube last night and didn't seem to have any issues. However, I read about this issue on the AndroidPolice review of this device.

    From the other device,use Astro or similar to backup the apk. Then copy the apk to the honor 8 and install it

    The soft back glass. It's scratched on the back edges, you can run your fingers over the back and feel how deep they are. It has kinda lost its luster now lol.

    You do know that you get 3 months free glass replacement if you register right? I agree with you about the scratches, even though mine don't feel deep. I still plan to get it replaced before the window closes though, so that I can have a scratch free phone.

    The video playback issue is definitely a nuisance. I'm forced to restart my phone once or twice a day because of it.

    I've also experience a strange issue... The phone automatically answers calls when the screen is covered (facing down or in a pocket). This happens even with all of the motion control settings disabled.

    Yeah but that's just the front glass though right?

    YES.... I'm not the only one with the CONSTANT need to reboot. I thought I had a lemon. I really hope that all that are having this problem report it..... JUST MAYBE, Honor will do something in the near term to correct this.

    Actually Android Police mentioned this issue as part of their review.

    When you say constant...how often? Once a day?

    This is twice a day ... would be more but sometimes I just switch activities (because who has time to reboot constantly). It is not a deal breaker to some, but to me it is a MAJOR annoyance. I am really considering giving up and trying the Axon 7 again, since the update apparently solves some of the camera and radio woes.

    I also performed a factory data reset in hopes of killing off the issue as was suggest earlier in this thread. I'm surprised that only three users have noticed this issue.

    So the problem still persists after the factory data reset?

    If it's any consolation, I haven't had any video playback issues. Haven't rebooted or powered off except to insert my SD card. Watching Simpsons on FXNow app as we speak.

    I have to wait til I get back in an area to test.... accomplished it last night and when I was awaken by the sweet sound of my Honor 8 alarm, all of my apps had yet to download and the google play services update had yet to be applied. I can update the results later..... sincerely hope it works.

    So far so good... I reset the device and things seem to be much better now. HOPEFULLY this reset has done the trick.

    Thanks for you feedback. I am leading the Honor team in the USA.
    1. for the app drawer I think you will get the answer for our next EMUI version 5.0
    2. for the camera speed I will try to feedback to R&D to check any solution for it.
    3. for accessories, what kind of accessories do you want for Honor 8? I will try to get more for US.
    4. There will be more colors coming, which color you want? Gold or pink? Black is already there now.
    5. for the GPU part, I play a lot of games on Smartphone. Until now there is no lag for me for the games. How about yours?

    Not the original poster, but for number 3, chargers, both wall and car. And I see the folio style case on hihonor.com, but why no black for it?
