Is this as good as the Samsung S8?

No, it's Huawei's mid range brand. But it is fantastic value for money.

Is there anything as good or better than the Samsung S8+/Note? I'm changing from Apple.

That's a non-question, 'better' is very subjective and it depends what's most important to you in a phone. This is arguably much better, for example, in terms of value and perfomance to cost ratio. Do you want the ultimate camera, the ultimate gaming phone? It all depends.

I just want a phone that doesn't lag so much, I have a iPhone 6 and with the new updates the phone is too slow even though I have a 128gb and only used about 20gb.

I was going to go for an S8 but if I can get something similar to this at a similar or slightly lower price I'd be happy. Thanks appreciate your help.

Depends what you are looking for in a phone. Google is your friend.

I use this site to help compare camera performance on smartphones, which is one of my biggest deciding factors when looking for a new phone (although still take the reviews with a pinch of salt, not sure if Google helped them with their Pixel reviews...)

I have a p9 lite which only has 3gb ram & 16gb storage but Android N runs like a dream. No lag, no reboots.
With the spec's of this phone it should run to perfection.

They charge my credit card only when shipping the item I've ordered.

Ah thank you

Seems like a lot of phone for the price - androidauthority.com/hon…54/

And if drops in price before release you will be charged lower price

Is the video recording still questionable quality on huawei/Honor phones? My experience with them is the cameras are fantastic for pictures but video not so much.

Depends what you want from a phone? Quality hardware, go S8+/Note. If speed is more important, consider the Pixel 2 and One Plus 5T.

Cheers. I've got about £280 on my Amazon account so I want to try and use this. Unfortunately I've not seen the One Plus 5T being sold by Amazon directly but I'll check to see if they have the Pixel 2, might end up getting the S8+/Note simply because of what's available on Amazon..

No problems Sackcity.

I'd wait for the 5T to appear on Amazon as my One Plus 3 is still a beast after 1.5 years of use.

I am giving this heat. Spec is excellent. Definitely value for money. I also had good ex with Huawei brand, and the honour range tend to have really good camera, so no doubt this will be amazing.

I wouldn't compare this with an s8. However it seems nice value for money, SD835 vs Kirin 659? You should compare Kirin 960/970 instead. I don't mean it's a bad phone but not in the same league.

No NFC which will be a deal breaker for some. Good camera though!

Thanks for posting. Been waiting for this to be available for a Christmas gift. Sorted.

The Nokia 8 has the top-spec Snapdragon 835 and pure bare-bones Android so if having the very best camera isn't a priority (still should be reasonable and I would have thought comparable to your old i6) and you want to save some money, this ought to be about as speedy as any other phone out there. Available for circa £360ish, or on contract for £18.88/mth. If you want fast AND best camera, then Google Pixel 2 (DXOMArk champion) if money is no object (or the Pixel 1 still extremely good and reduced due to being superceded). Might want to look into the screen burn issue on Google Pixel 2 though.

Thanks will check out the Nokia 8!

I've been interested in this phone and have been following updates on it this past week. From what I saw, price estimates ranged from €200 EUR up to €300 EUR. A Huawei rep, when asked about the various cost-cutting measures (no NFC, no USB-C, no Quick Charge, no water-resistance, no wireless charging) said that this phone was going to be aggressively priced - elsewhere Huawei claimed it would be an '"unbeatable" price". Seeing it come in at around €305 EUR puts it above even the high-end price estimates.Whether or not it's a decent value overall, I cannot help but be a little disappointed.

Deffo overpriced. It's available on Flipkart for £100 less and that's the 64gb model. We'll have to wait to find out if the Indian model supports B20

i think its interesting that the honor 9 is a similar price and benchmarks at 2x as powerful as the 7x, unless ur that bothered about bezeless were is the sense in getting this, its weaker in almost every catergory

At £270, it's also competing against the G5Plus, which looks better on paper and offers a pure Android experience

The Honor 8 Pro would be closer to the S8 than this one.

I've got an 8 Pro and it's a decent phone, I doubt I'll buy an Honor device again though as they're glacially slow at getting software updates out. Mine hasn't been updated in months and my mum has a 6X which is still running the Android security patch from April despite it being a new model this year.

It looks nice, another option though I think right now this might be top of the list. Thank you.

No USB c though.

I may just bite the bullet and get the S8

Surprised they've dropped NFC when I have it on my 6x.

Check out the Moto G5s plus.. also £270 and you get dual camera, larger 5.5inch screen and a much better metal unibody build. motorola.co.uk/pro…BwE

no nfc, no usb c, no fast wifi,no wireless charging, very old relased 3 years ago GPU ARM MALI-T830 MP2 and old type slow emmc memory. But .... looks amazing.

Look for an Honor 9 close to this price, rather than 7x.

After living with an Honor 7 for years bought for £209 from vmall the Honor shop back in 2015 I can honestly say don't bother. It's now developing speaker issues, suffers from ram issues, not supported by a few apps, games run really poorly on it, no support, updates died a long time ago...it's just not a very good phone.

If this had a Snapdragon soc I'd be interested maybe but at a much lower price. £180 max.

The Honor 7x has the larger screen. 5.93 inches on the Honor 7x vs the 5.5 inches on the Moto G5S Plus.

Actually it beats the S8 in some ways. I went to the launch event. Pretty good, tried it out too.
