    Just saw that Honor posted on Facebook today that 5.0 is rolling out around February 11th for the 8
    Super exciting!! Thank you so much for the update!

    LOOL at "update." Didn't mean for that to be a pun, but... :P.

    So nice to have phones that are getting updates like this.
    Had so many good devices that were just left in the dust.

    If honor needs time to roll out I don't expect this on my phone for a week or two.

    Hoping all you guys get moved up as soon as possible!

    While waiting, I'm debating if I should back up my phone or not. Usually something "breaks" when I restore them :/

    Hmmm...
    Might be a good idea.

    I was thinking maybe I'll factory reset before taking the update...

    You definitely need to, I had an instance yesterday where I updated my phone and for some reason it factory reset itself. THE ONE TIME I DIDNT BACK UP.

    Backup photos, messages, phone calls and other valuable data. Dont back up apps and apps state as that would still not improve if you restore.

    Whoa...that sounds horrible.

    Wait, you can back up just messages and phone calls only? That's all that I would backup. Here I thought it was all or none for backups.

    Go into the backup app when you get a chance, you have many options of what to back up, even personal phone settings!

    I'm not really in a rush, I've been around long enough to know this takes time. That being said, has anyone in the US received the update yet?

    Although it isn't necessary to back up, it's a good fail safe in case something goes wrong with the update

    Quite a few people have, look through the thread. One person's had two honor 8's, one brand new and got the update a few weeks ago. He was from the north east.

    Thank you for the tip!!

    Edit: Wow, just backed up the important stuff, and it took no time at all. This phone keeps surprising me with how incredibly fluid the experience is!

    You're Welcome ^_^! The backup app is really well put together, makes it so convenient! If you use an SD card I recommend saving the back ups to that!

    Wow thanks for this tip! I just used it and I love that I can back up so much! I was shocked to see that I can back up my blacklist, as I get a lot of random calls!
