    Twice I've had my Honor 8 out of the blue flash a low power warning then start shutting down. The 1st time I plugged it in on time and it started charging and was at 45%. Today I didn't get it on the charger quick enough and it shut down. I plugged it in and when it came back on again it was at 45%. Anyone else have any issues like, heard of it with the Honor 8 or any other clues?

    I had a Moto phone do that. Customer service recommended that I do a fdr. Worth a shot. Make sure to backup data first.

    Sounds like a defective battery. It can't handle 100% load and "dies". That's why it has a charge left when you boot it up. It usually happens with old, crappy (3rd party) or a defective battery. So check for a warrant replacement

    This is good. If factory reset doesn't work, then definitely get a warranty replacement

    Yeah, I was going to suggest a warranty replacement if that didn't fix the issue too

    I hate to hear that because it's a huge hassle to deal with Huawei honor sending it back in. They want the original receipt and a slew of pictures sent in before they will issue you a return label. As far as how long it takes I'm not sure. I just know I attempted to get my first honor 8 repaired through warranty on a charging defect but after I saw how difficult it was going to be plus I didn't want to go without my honor that long I decided to sell it as it still charged but you had to manually go into settings and change a setting to allow it to charge. So I disclosed it and sold it which was why I left honor for the very first time after using that phone for about 5 months straight. Good luck. I hope you can resolve it rather than having to send it in with all that hassle they put you through.

    Wow. That's a lot of steps just to get the return labels. Such a hassle

    Thanks everyone for all the help. it doesn't happen weekly or monthly yet. Probably twice in the last 4 months and I've had it for almost a year. I'll look into all options and reply back.

    Remember that warranty is only a year though. So if you plan to send it in... Do it soon.

    If you're hitting that one year mark. Send it right away...
