    With the recent post by Android Central on How is your Pixel holding up, I thought it will be interesting to do a similar post on How is your Honor 8 holding up!

    So, how is your Honor 8 holding up?

    I got the Midnight Black Honor 8 in December 2016. Love it so far. Has been a good and aged a little bit more than usual as I use it with and without a case. Absolutely love that there is no camera bump with the design!

    It did fall once with screen down but luckily have no damage except for one visible scratch when viewed from a certain angle and another not so visible scratch in the screen. The back also has worn out a little with few not so visible scratches.

    Camera is still outstanding and have taken some great pictures with this tiny dual camera. Use the wide aperture mode a lot.

    Other than that, I still love my Honor 8 and I guess it's going to be with me for a while.

    From what I can see, it's doing fine. I no longer own the Honor 8, as I gave mine to my brother-in-law who needed a new phone.

    The last time I used it was a month ago. It has lived in a case 98% of the time though.

    I think my honor had better battery life when they're on marshemellow. Also, nougat sometime gives me a stuttering lag when I try to open apps.

    Yep, battery life is what I want to know about. I returned mine because the battery was sub par on Nougat. I just bought one again (Newegg deal) as a backup.

    To be honest, I am getting a good battery life with Nougat. Here is the latest - 15hrs!

    Agreed, battery life on the Honor 8 has been fantastic.

    I gotta say, I've been very impressed with the phone. Super quick, speedy proformance. Good screen. Great network proformance on TMO. Sound quality through wired ear buds is pretty great too.

    I got my white Honor 8 in December 2016, and it's been about four months now. It's still working well! The battery life isn't as great with 5.0, but it's still quite good! I have no complaints thus far. I'm truly happy with my purchase.

    I've had my Honor 8 for about 3 months. No problems. It's been in a case since day one so I'm lucky. No dings, dents or scratches.

    Performance has been really good. I'm still on the B360 software version Android 7. No complaints really on battery life. Had some small WiFi issues but that was my router not the phone.

    Extremely happy with my purchase.

    Mine is in perfect condition after 7 months. Still runs perfectly too.
    And battery life is insane.

    Mine is holding up well. No damage. But I get bored with phones easily, so I'm looking at something else. While I like the dual camera on it, I notice the limitations when it comes to low light and macro shots. But hey, for the price, it's a good camera. Battery life isn't as good with Android 7.0 and some things don't work as well as with EMUI 4.1. I also want a phone with a louder external speaker. But I'll miss the Smart Key features.

    What phone are you currently using? I see you on iMore I'm thinking of switching to the 7 Plus, but I know you prefer the smaller SE. (I sound like a stalker now--ha!)

    Haha not a stalker just an observer.

    I am currently using the Pixel (not the XL) but I still own and like the SE a lot.

    Mine is in mint condition as well but my SoT has gone to 3 hours after the 360 update. Are you on 380?

    Bought my 8 in November, so far still holding up great. The battery slightly reduced after the 5 update, I feel that's common. No issues with the device and still enjoy using it. My wife even liked it so much that she bought a 6x to replace an iphone, for the larger screen, otherwise it would have been an 8 as well. I don't regret my 8 purchase one bit

    I am. But I have made sure apps I don't use often get shutdown.

    Had mine since November, no complaints. Biggest issue so far has been the pesky Nougat update. I don't want to update, so I had to deal with a persistent reminders to update. I solved that by following a tutorial provided by one kind member from here, but I'm still stuck with a permissions request every time I change from WiFi to cellular (and back). As far as the exterior of the device, it has a double screen protector, tempered on the front and regular on the back. I tried using it like that (almost naked) for a while, but it ended up being too slippery for my liking. So now it sits in a clear Nilkin case, no complaints. Overall still a great device, so much that I recommend it left and right.

    I like it a lot but I'm still not sure that is worth as much as they price it at. The best thing about it is one handed usage is great.

    I was considering doing a thread about my experience going from one to the other but it seems like those threads aren't always well received.

    I can see what you're saying - one-handed use is very convenient!

    If you want to do a comparison thread, go for it! Your opinion counts.

    Mine's holding up really well! Physically, just a couple of scratches on the screen protector and some scuffs on the case. Underneath all of that the phone itself is still as good as new. Operation-wise, no complaints. As others have mentioned, the battery life isn't what it used to be after the update, but it's still great. The fingerprint sensor seems to have gotten faster and more accurate to the point that I sometimes unlock the phone accidentally. Still very happy with the Honor 8!

    So far pretty good although my battery just isn't what it used to be but I've also gone to one phone so my honor is seeing heavy usage now. I bought a 7 inch tablet for my second number instead of a second phone so my honor has a load of apps so I guess to be expected. I've had a few cases of a occasional freeze but it snaps out of it. I'm still loving it but at the same time I still may end up getting an iPhone 8 if the innovation is there. Depends if Honor stays their course. I saw something about the honor 8 pro which I'll have to research. Not sure what that's about yet as I've been off the grid with my dying mother. Hope all is good with everyone.

    Glad your Honor 8 is still holding up! Mine also suffers the occasional glitch or hiccuping but it's able to recover pretty quickly. But I get what you're saying about battery life. It's good, but not as good as it was before. I think it was better for me under 4.1.

    Again, please reach out if you ever want to talk about your mom. We're here for you!

    I received my phone yesterday, the black phone really looks great when compared to the white and blue version. I'm currently setting it up as a backup (primary is S7E) but might use it for a week or two depending on when I get bored lol. The phone definitely feels snappier but lags while installing/updating apps. Setting it same as my S7E (with Google Now launcher and emails, apps, etc.) might take me a few hours this weekend but I'm definitely giving it another try.
