    Hi guys!

    I randomly got the notification to upgrade my Honor 8 to EMUI 5.0.1 this morning! So far, to be honest, I haven't noticed much. Apparently they wrote something about the mirror app and "moving pictures." Haven't really rooted around to see what that's all about yet, though.

    Has anyone else gotten the update, who can shed some light on their feelings about it or on any other changes it may have brought to the table?

    Got the update this morning. Performance is the same. But my battery seems a little better during standby. Notice that the security went from April to August.

    Just got the update, was not notified, had to manually check for updates. Took about 10 minutes to download and install. So far not much difference , probably updates behind the scenes. The only new feature I see is the moving pictures, which takes a small video with the picture. The iPhone got this feature awhile back, not sure if I will use this much.

    Ah, so that is what the moving pictures means! Cool! Yeah, not sure how much I'll use it either, but it's good to have!

    Been using 5.0.1 for about a week. I feel like my cellular signal is a little more wonky than usual. Before the update I would get pretty consistent signal strength. Now it seems to be jumping all over the place. I also noticed that my phone doesn't go into deep snooze as much. I think I took a bit of a bit in battery life because of these two issues.

    Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that! Hopefully ensuing updates will help with these issues.

    Yeah, fingers crossed on emui 5.0.2 being a little more optimized than 5.0.1. I'd also be happy with jumping to emui 6 but I'm not holding my breath.

    EMUI 6.0 - that's definitely something to be excited about!

    I would guess that emui 6 would be tied to oreo. Not 100% sure that we will see it.

    There's actually a beta floating around at XDA of emui 6 on a mate 9. It's based on Oreo. I'm like 75% sure they'll bring it to the honor 8 but who knows.

    It's similar to live photos on ios. It takes a short video before and after the photo, if you have this mode enabled . You can view the video by pressing the moving pictures button in the gallery app.

    That's so awesome! Thank you for explaining it! I was wondering if it was similar to what happens on an iPhone.
