    It definitely won't get nougat but I've got a buddy of mine who used to for work for Apple in santa Clara CA and he took a Moto g4 play and installed a combo of EMUI and lineage on it and increased the speed of a 435 processor to that of an iphone 7 speed or faster. He also decreased the boot time down from 59 seconds to just 17 seconds. He's a genius. I was going to have him install EMUI on that axon pro plus make it faster too. He's unbelievable. Seriously he's a genius in the tech world. He and only a handful of guys in the world were the ones who came out with the software to jail break an iPhone. That's why apple recruited him for 5 years to come to work them. It's amazing what he can do but to get him to do mine will take some waiting. He's in his own world.
    To be honest you just have to know about rooting and such to do that. You don't have to be a genius

    Well he was making 24k a month with apple. He's pretty brilliant. I've never seen anyone more advanced than he is. He wrote code security program on his own time that apple wanted but could not write it so they recruited this guy for 5 straight years. It's just not with rooting a phone. He's way beyond that. In fact he can't even tell me what he did with apple. It's high level so I guess that's why he was making 24k a month with them. He lost a marriage out of it though which isn't good but yeah he's definitely a genius in his world of computers and tech. All he can say is that he was an engineer for apple and that's not even what his degree is in. It's computer science. The program that he wrote that apple wanted so badly and who could not write it themselves told him we want you because you are either the very best there is in your field or you have the potential to be the very best. That's strong coming from the biggest software company in the US. He's like an Einstein in his world but that it only. Just in his world. He'd always come to me for real estate advice on easy stuff and I'd think to myself how on Earth could you not know this. He's definitely a genius but only in his world.

    That's fine -- He can make as much as he wants .. it still doesn't make you a genius to install ROMs that others have made :P.

    Well it's just my opinion. If you don't believe me or what I've seen then that's up to you. I just know what I've seen him do and it's unbelievable. Whether he's a genius or not in his world is subjective. I'll leave it at that.

    It's OK. He's just bitter cause he doesn't make 24k a month 😂😂

    That's certainly a lot of money to me. Before my own business went under for many years I made around 12k to 13k a month. I thought that was a lot but it's nothing compared to 24k a month! That's insane money and only the elite get paid that type of money per month. So when I say he's a genius in his world he's literally the best in his field. Heck he wrote a security program that apple wanted so bad that they recruited him for 5 straight years until he finally caved at 24k a month. So this means he wrote a security program for apple as a hobby in which the biggest software company in the US could not write themselves which made them recruit him to get their hands on it for 5 long years. Think about it like this. He genuis enough to write a program which basically he was able to see that far into the future by 5 years of what apple wanted, needed but could not replicate themselves. This is because one he's either a genius in his field or at the very least the very best in his field and brilliant. No he's not a genius in everything as he came to me for real estate appraisal advice all the time which I often wondered how could one not know this just by common sense alone. This is another sign of a genius by the way. He was told by apple that they thought he was the very best in his field. Which he had to be if they were paying him 24k a month. That is an awfully lot of money to pay someone who is just good at what he does. He's better than that and I've seen it with my own eyes and heard it. There are times he talks to me and it sounds like an entirely different language and I'm actually somewhat tech savvy. I know absolutely nothing compared to him. So if he's a genius in his world I guess could up for debate or my opinion but there is no doubt he is at the very top of his field. Most of his certifications came from MIT. He made a 34 on the SAT. Two points from a perfect score. I just know he's brilliant in his world and he can do anything he wants when it comes to code and computers. Mobile tech included. He's also apple die hard. His name is listed in the development of the iphone 4 but I'm not going to mention his name for respect to him but apple consulted him on where the antenna needed to be placed in that phone which was well before they ever recruited him or he worked for them. They very well knew who he was already and well enough to consult with him on that part of the design phase. I've just seen him in action and so I've got first hand knowledge of what he can do and what he has done. We are good friends. We talk just about every day. I'll tell you it's even hard for me to get him to work on my phones bc he's either busy or he's got his own projects that he's working on. I'll get his time occasionally if I'm lucky so yeah the guy is years ahead of his field.

    If my other phone sales on the market place that will give more than enough to get another Honor 8. It will be either the honor or the Moto Z Play. I'm torn between the two devices. I just need to sell my other phone which I'm surprised it hasn't sold yet. Hopefully it will and I'll have enough spare cash to pick up one of the two phones. Only reason I'm thinking about the Z Play is bc I've already got Moto mods for it and it'll also serve as my larger screen phone. Tough choice that is if my other phone ever sells.

    I found a Honor 8 on swappa that I'm trying to buy. I'm waiting on his reply now. Hopefully I'll get this one and be back in the honor 8 club soon. I'm trying to see if he will come down 15 dollars which I hope he does. I've been looking for one that is complete with box and contents. I wanted blue or pearl but this one is black which is fine. They all look good. I just miss having the honor 8 so hopefully I'll be able to get this one. This time around I'm keeping it lol. It'll always be in my collection and rotation. I wanted the 64g but 32g is fine since I'm on a tight budget plus it has expandable storage so I'll put a 64g SD card in it anyway.

    He never did and I had found another one but the description stated a couple of light scratches on the screen which is a pet peeve of mine. I was just about to hit the buy button when a guy from the market place here called me. I took the call before I hit buy. So he had a pixel XL that he offered me for 350 but since my other phone hadn't sold I did not have enough to cover that plus I'm not a fan of how the Pixel looks anyway. We got to talking and come to find out he had three Nexus 6ps which is still to date my favorite Android phone I've ever used which of course I don't consider the honor 8 to be Android because it's nothing like it. So he happened to have a brand new Nexus 6p 64g still in the box plastic on it and everything. Never even turned on. He offered it to me for $150!!!! I was totally floored!! As much as I like the Nexus 6p when I had it before and being that I'm in the market for a larger screen phone I simply could not pass that deal up. The 64g used still go for $350 to $425! I got a brand new 64g Nexus 6p for $150 dollars! What a good guy to give me the deal of the century. I literally was about to hit the buy it now button on the honor 8 when my phone wrung which was him calling me. I had every intention to buy another honor 8 which the one I really wanted the guy never responded to me and I was a bit concerned with the light two scratches on this other honor 8 I was about to buy. Anyways this was a deal of a lifetime that I simply could not pass up. I use the Nexus 6p as a measuring stick to compare every Android phone I buy to. It's just that good of a device and who is it made by? Huawei!!! There is a reason the Nexus 6p for stock Android to run so smoothly and it's because Huawei produced that phone. So although I didn't get the honor 8 I still got a Huawei phone and one that is my all time favorite "Android" device I've ever used brand new 64g for only $150! I'm still in shock over this deal. I'll still definitely get another Honor 8 but it'll be in a couple months now. I've already got plenty of cases for the Nexus 6p and left over screen protectors for it. I could easily turn around and sell this 6p for around $400 bucks but I assure you that I'm not. He gave me such a good deal that I can't believe it. What a nice guy. I should have it the day after tomorrow as he is overnighting it to me. I stoked that it's the 64g bc there is no expandable storage on the 6p. When I owned one it was the 32g. This one is silver and white but I'm going to put a skin on it so the color didn't matter really except I didn't want gold. I'm not a fan of gold phones to be honest. So now I just filled the void of not having a larger screen device which the 6p is 5.7 inches and it will be great for movies and media. When I get the honor 8 that will be my daily driver as the 6p will be my second device or back up. I'm sure for the next few days I'll only use the 6p as it will be new to me but to use a large phone daily I can't do for long. My sweet spot for a daily phone is 5 to 5.2 inches. The honor 8 is perfect for a daily driver. Until then my axon 7 mini will be my smaller device as it's 5.2 inches as well. I'm still in shock at the price I got it for. He could not have called at a better time bc I was just about to hit the buy it now button on that honor 8 that had those light scratches on the screen. Great timing indeed. This guy had tons of phones. If anyone is looking for a steal on a pixel XL let me know. I can get back in touch with him as he offered it to me around $350 which is a awesome deal too. I just like the 6p better.

    I'll text him and see. I know he has a pixel XL for around 350 to 400 bucks! I personally like the 6p better than the Pixel if I am using stock Android then the icing on the cake for me is that Huawei produced the 6p and you guys definitely know how I feel about Huawei Honor already. I'll definitely text him and ask him. It might be a 32g or it could be a 64h. How serious are you before I ask him?

    Thanks. It came out of nowhere. I'll be getting an honor 8 sometime in October probably towards the latter part. I can't decide between the Pearl and the Blue but I would like to get the 64g model. Hopefully I'll catch it on sale when I get ready to buy one. You just never know when they go on sale like it did on B&H for $279 not long ago. That was only for the Pearl color though for some reason. I wonder if that's because the Pearl does not sale as many units as the Blue and Black do. I would not mind a Pearl and then I'd order a Red dbrand skin for it. That would be a sweet contrast I think.

    That would be a great contrast, for sure! Hmm, I wonder why the Pearl White doesn't sell as many units if that hypothesis is true... Perhaps because the other colours are super interesting? I really like my white one though... Harder to lose. 😂

    Was it a US model honor 9? I've yet to see a US model for purchase here in the US. I just could not pass up a brand new Nexus 6p 64g for only $150 bucks!!!! It was still sealed in the box. When I owned one before I had the 32g model and I paid $399 for it. The deal I got was a deal of the century. I'm running Oreo already too. Of course Huawei produced the Nexus 6p so that makes me like it even more. Outside of the Honor 8 the Nexus 6p is my all time favorite Android device but you guys know I don't think EMUI is Android anyway. This 6p is definitely stock Android but by far the smoothest stock Android I've ever used. It's up there next to EMUI for some reason. I've got two skins already ordered for the Huawei Nexus 6p one from Dbrand in Red with a Blue camera with the Nexus words in Blue and my other skin is from Mighty Skins which will be here tomorrow. The model Huawei 6p I got is the Frost White color which looks pretty cool. I guess it doesn't matter though because it's about to be covered up as of tomorrow with the Red skin. I think I'm going to order a Blue skin too from Dbrand with the Nexus words in Red and Camera in Red just the opposite of the set up I already have on order. Next month I'm hope to be able to pick up another honor 8 which will either be in Pearl or Blue one. I'm loving the 5.7 inch quad hd display. It's great for movies and YouTube reviews.

    I really wanted another honor 8 but I've been enjoying this Nexus 6p like no tomorrow. Outside of EMUI the Nexus 6p is my all time favorite Android phone. I love the Dual front facing stereo speakers it has as it gets very loud for audio. Then the 5.7 inch screen and the absolute unique build which I attribute that unique design to Huawei honor since they made the 6p. It's great for YouTube and movies. The only two other phones I want right now is another honor 8 and another Moto Z Play. Once I'm able to pick both of those up I'll be good for a while. I've also got my eyes on the iPhone X too being that it's the first iPhone that's the same size as the 6s and 7 but has a 5.8 inch screen. It's expensive though so I'll have to think long and hard about getting it.
