    Is probably one of the best I've ever had! I've only had it for two or three days so far but man is it good. I decided to get a smaller phone (came from Moto x style). Everything about this phone feels so nice! I was a little hesitant because of the software but once I booted it up I was very relieved. I'm running nova launcher on it now but I've had no stutters or hiccups or anything. Battery life after a few days has been really solid too, I've made it a full day with heavy use. Love this phone so far.

    Couldn't agree more, may I suggest giving EMUI a solid shot. I ran nova and KLWP on every android phone. I have yet to want use it. If it's an app drawer you seek that is coming in February with EMUI 5.0

    There are just so many useful features built into the UI. I recommend downloading the user manual and giving it a read through. You will be surprised at the things packed into this amazing device.

    There are communities dedicated to theming EMUI, which changes almost every aspect of EMUI. There are apps to build you own theme using different pieces from other themes, or you can create you own. You can even use your icon packs from the play store.

    I can go on and on about this device haha. Congrats on the phone and there are some good people in this forum. Don't be afraid to ask any questions.

    I'm so glad you like it, OP! I've had mine for a week and I am really loving it. The size is perfect, the battery is amazing, the fingerprint scanner is superb, and I love the aesthetic of the OS and the hardware.

    Also, what colour did you get?!

    Theme editor for EMUI, it's on the play store. There are some FAQ on how to build a theme on a PC. I haven't gotten I to that yet. I just take things I like from each theme and make my own.

    Well said. It's my favorite Android phone of the year for sure. I have tried a lot of phones and they have all fallen short.

    Glad that you are liking yours!

    I'm glad to see so many of you are happy with your phone. I ordered one shortly before Christmas and I'll hopefully get around to firing it up once the holidays end (and my 4 year old feels better - she had a post Christmas stomach bug today). I'm really looking to save some money but still have a solid, top of the line phone. This looks like it could be the one.

    I keep reading a lot of positiveness about this phone and would really like to experience it myself. I would like to compare it to my V10 and V20s.

    You'll succeed in this venture. I've had mine for about a week and I love it.

    Well size-wise the honor 8 will be no comparison there.
    As far as quality, feel and speed it's most definitely a major go!

    I would call the honor 8 a jewel for a night on the town.
    The way the light reflects off the back is very diamond like.

    I think Amazon has the blue one on sale for $290.00 right now.

    I'm on Twitter,Instagram,chrome and etc all day posting ,searching and the like. Constant texting and listening to music. GPS mixed in as well because sometimes I drive from place to place, Email checks as well. The most I've got so far has been 5 hours and 3 minutes SOT

    Never had a phone I've enjoyed using as much as my honor 8. Really hope it gets daydream certified when nougat gets general release.
