    This is something Ive never experienced (or heard of) . Before and after the security patch update.

    Auto brightness always sets darker than I would like. But manual adjustments are smooth and gradual from dark to bright... on my end. Just tested this again... Seems fine.

    I have had the auto brightness knock things down to a very low level, but it has always seemed appropriate. Much like you Botanical, seems OK to me.

    Hi James.

    Tnx for offering your help.
    I have Honor 8 myself also (model is FRD-AL00) and I wonder if you experience the same issues.

    1. I've added Google account. Mails work perfectly. However, contacts are not there. At all. Nowhere. The account sync settings doesn't show the option to sync contacts.

    2. Does your phone speaks too much Chinese as well? See the screen-shots attached.


    Thank you,
    Alex

    Did you go to Settings->Apps and then edit the Permissions for both Email and Gmail apps to include contacts?

    I didn't. However the correct settings are there. I don't have Gmail app, though. Inbox app is there instead, I guess.
    I think the source of the problem is that I don't have the option to sync contacts in my Google account settings. At all.

    @alexious hmm I think I see the issue. It's strange that you don't have the option.

    I am not sure here, all I can think of is possibly adding the account again and choose manual setup as an option and making sure that you have the option on setup.

    Wait, so the Gmail app is not in your list of apps at all?

    Also your last shot has your email. Can you edit that?

    Manually adding the gmail doesn't change anything. Still no contacts showing up.

    Correct, Gmail app is not in my app list at all.

    I don't understand your last remark about the shot having the email. Can you rephrase that? If I can edit what?

    Your last screenshot has your account email visible. Can you edit the shot and repost it? You don't have to repost it, but you can choose to remove that screenshot altogether for safety reasons.

    I'm sorry, I don't mean your Gmail, I meant your general Google account. That is really odd that it still doesn't work. :/

    Both are pretty good! I have been pleased with the battery life, and never had any hooks while doing anything.

    Both solid on my side. I'd say both have exceeded any expectations I might have had.

    Also check out if the sim card is placed in correctly to be read. Have you tried switching the sims around to see if it is your other sim, or the slot itself?

Now i began to think that my devide is not original or some factory failure product

    Have you contacted that sim provider to see if it may be a provisioning issue?
