    So I'm highly interested in getting an honor 9. Who else plans on getting rid of their honor 8 to bring in the 9. If not, why? The honor 9 has a front facing finger print sensor and is 5.1 in size which I personally like over the 5.2 size. I am indifferent about the placement of the fingerprint sensor. What about you guys and pretty gals? Just curious what everyone is going to do. I for one definitely want the honor 9 over the 8. Now the real question is, how long do we have to wait here in the US for it to be readily available which I seem to think it's going to be quite a while to be honest. Thoughts?

    Not to my knowledge. I wish they would. Anybody know out there? Are you going to get one?

    it looks nice but I don't think I am going to switch from the 8. I like the screen size of the 8, also after using the fingerprint sensor on the back I don't know if I want to go back to it being on the front. Plus my 8 is running so good that I can't justify getting rid of it.

    Wait do you still have your honor 8? I thought that you sold it already.

    To answer your question though.... I am tempted to get it to upgrade if I can get the honor 8 at a good price

    I sold my honor 8 recently to make way for iPhone SE but I found it to be just too small. I then traded the SE for a BlackBerry PRIV which I am currently using. This definitely allows me to be wide open to the honor 9 when it finally comes available. I do miss my honor 8 but I was a BlackBerry addict for many years during their height in the mobile market. I love the physical keyboard so I couldn't turn down the tempted over to trade out. I'll most definitely get an honor 9 as I'm indifferent about the fingerprint sensor and I personally like that the 9 is 5.1 as opposed to 5.2.

    I will be waiting for a big screen phone next year. Not fussed about the cameras anymore as I've taken up photography with proper cameras.

    How is the priv treating you? How do you like it compared to the honor 8?

    Would it be a Huawei like the mate phones? Or are you considering branching out to other manufacturers?

    I like the PRIV but I also miss my honor 8. That is why I want either a mate 9 or honor 9. The honor 9 will be much more affordable so that's probably what I'll get. The PRIV doesn't have any side bezels making the screen look huge even though it's only 5.4 inches. So far I love it. Lots of features and beautiful quad display. I'll come back to honor though as I like EMUI so much.

    You can always check out the marketplace or Swappa or whatever . I have seen the mate 9 go for under $400 in mint condition.

    That's a good idea because I will have around 400 to spend shortly on a new device. I was thinking about the Axon 7 but would rather the mate 9 of course.

    I would think that the mate 9 is a better phone than the Axon 7 for you... Especially since you like emui.

    Oh yeah definitely so! I have been wanting the mate 9 for quite a while but the Huawei side of things are so much higher in price. I'd love to find one used but I want the complete box kit too. You are right, I do like EMUI a lot and I have high expectations for it too for the future. If I could find a mate 9 for around 350 to 400 I'd be on it. Just they don't pop up for sale often because really aside from all of us on here, most or majority of the average consumer has no idea Huawei honor even exists. I keep thinking the mate 9 will go on sale but so far it's held its price and hasn't moved. I've wanted one since the day it was released but I try not to spend over 400 for a phone anymore. Too many other good ones out there at that price point or below. Hopefully the Mate will go on sale at some point but by then it will be dated and I'll want the latest model lol.

    I would just keep checking the various sites like Swappa and eBay . I would think that you would be able to get $400 with a little patience and luck.

    Hey I appreciate the help as I'll keep my eye open on both sites. Do you have a Mate 9? I'm just wondering how much alike it is to the Honor 8?

    I don't have a mate 9, but i suspect that emui 5 on both would be fairly similar. Of course the mate 9 has a larger screen and newer processor, bigger battery.

    Awesome! Let me know how you like it! Unfortunately it doesn't work on Verizon and the price was a bit too high for a phone that I would essentially use wifi only.

    Oh yeah you could not justify getting it for WiFi only. I don't blame you there at all. If I get one I'll definitely let you know how it is and what it's like. Hopefully I'll get one pretty soon. I've been wanting one for a long while now. I'm hoping they hurry up and support CDMA here in the US for you guys who are on Verizon. I know it's a pain. Do you have an honor 8?

    I have an honor 8, yes. It has been on sale numerous times, lowest was $224 back on black Friday which is ok to pick up because I could still resell it at the time without a loss.

    That's a very good deal. Did you get the 64g? Brand new you can't beat that today still. That is awesome. I hate that you can't use it cellular. Have you ever thought about picking up a cricket line for it? They are really priced cheap for their service and they use AT&T cell towers so you get excellent coverage. I only pay 60 dollars a month for unlimited data. You can pick up a 5gb plan for around 40 dollars a month I think. It's not high.

    I have used att and T-Mobile for a short time. And while it worked ok, for my needs Verizon is still the cheapest by far and provides the best service where i need it . Granted i have a legacy plan .

    Honor 9 does look beautiful, but I'm not going to give up my 8 for a while. Plus I try to skip phone manufacturers with each new upgrade, so I won't be trying out an Honor device next time 'round.
