Great price. I bought myself a samsung s8 through company, and my wife an honor 9 (previously had an honor 8).

The samsung is no where near worth £300 more, will be the last one I ever buy. Sure it benchmarks quicker, but in real world use you'll notice FA difference.

The honor 9 is a decent improvement in every way over the honor 8, except one.

The finger print reader on the 8 doubled up as a button, so I could press once for camera, long press for torch, double click for hue, really useful function without having to unlock the phone. Shame they removed it.

Any plans for android 8 otherwise cold..


Look up in the thread. Thats what Oreo is
And really you vote a phone hot or cold based on a OS update from Nougat to Oreo

Ok it's probably not the nicest looking phone but it's definitely not lacking internally and the price more than makes up for the design. However, now using an S8, not sure I could go back to a screen to body ratio like that.

I thought the 9 extended that functionality - I'd need to check my wife's one though.

My wifes doesn't, as I was going to flog my s8 and get a 9 instead.
Hi
Need some help! Need a new phone going from an lg g4, i will spend upto £300 so can get a xiaomi mi6 or wait till mi mix 2 goes down a bit but this has great specs, anyone in the know would like any suggestions just need good all round phone with good camera
John Lewis no longer ships mobile phones to n.ireland
It's better to go with 10
Honor phones are best
Not a nice looking phone?! I bloody love it's distinctive metallic back design

The camera is astoundingly good, screen sharp, speakers good quality, memory plenty, CPU fast, wireless radios all quick and reliable (no disconnects) - what more are people looking for??

That's interesting I havnt had mine yet
Decent phone. EMUI slows down a fair bit over time though. Frequent resets are needed on my GFs phone.

Plus, lack of decent accessories.
Grrr bought this a couple of weeks ago for 309. Good phone, I like it.
Can anyone who has the phone confirm it has NFC for AndroidPay? JL website says no but some websites (ie Argos) say Yes!
Thanks OP.
I bought one of these last July, shortly after release to replace my Sony Z3 Compact which was starting to feel a little sluggish. I paid £379.99 from a Three store with some free bluetooth headphones which I've hardly used! £279.99 seems a fantastic price for what's still a phone with current flagship specs. Mine feels snappy, and I love the blue glass back. It's a slightly generic looking phone at the front, but not bad looking by any stretch. The camera is also very good.
Much difference between this and the Nokia 8 ?
This or LG g6

m.gsmarena.com/hua…php This site says yes and is normally very reliable. My honor 8 has it (used it today) so I can't imagine they'd take it out. I'll double check with someone who has one.

Just checked, it does indeed have NFC. fingerprint unlock to Android pay is very nice and quick

Thanks OP! Can anyone recommend a good case and screen protector for this? The best case I could find was this: amazon.co.uk/Fle…B48 but even that is meant to come with its issues (collects dirt). I've not been able to find any screen protector that's said to be a good fit.
Currently have an S8. Worth selling it and getting this? 🤔

The honor 9 feels more premium in the hand, and looks nicer, and the finger print scanner is quicker and in a far more sensible place. The camera on the S8 is superb, but if you use it for social media then the one in the 9 isn't far off (can't remember if it has image stabilisation). I've had the same dilemma, only thing I'd miss is the wireless charging, went for a Lexus NX which came with it and was the only reason I bought myself the S8 instead of the honor 9.
It's a pretty damn good phone for the price. My only gripes are that Huawei phones use their own quirky fast charge tech so you'll need to get hold of another a legit Huawei quick charge charger if you want more than one. Also the battery isn't...amazing; you'll last a day unless you're using it heavily. Also don't expect the most amazing night-time/low-light shots. Otherwise the camera is good.
The fingerprint sensor is very good and lightning quick; my friend's S8 fingerprint sensor is slow in comparison.

Honestly as long as you're being realistic with your expectations (and keep some of Huawei's quirks in mind) you're getting a fantastic phone for a mid-range price.
Are these dual SIM?

Phone comes with a decent case. EBay has some screen protectors that fit well for about 2.50.

Probs not. Similar specs in some areas but then the S8 has a higher resolution screen and less bezel. Though suppose you could sell the S8 for 400ish and pocket some cash when buying the honor.
