Had the phone a week before it started to reboot all the time, could not turn it off, but it continued until the battery died, submitted to the 4th got mail yesterday "Replacing the circuit board. Test calls, camera and WIFI OK!" So I hope to get it within a few days
Great phone otherwise, for the price I got it for 2500kr from Tele2.

It is a very efficient smartphone.
To begin with, I want to tell you what I have experience of telephones in the relevant segment: SGS3, Z1c, Z3c, SGS5 (temporarily), followed by a new Z3c. (My first "smartphone" was a P900 ;-)).
S3an comes closest in sense in terms of shape (size and the rounded edges), but Sony ear cups is closer in terms of materials (glass front and back and the plastic on the edges).
It is fashionable to complain about the glass backs and plastic in general, but when it comes to feeling so Honor 8 truly in a class by itself!
The plastic edges are obviously selected because of practical reasons, hardly economy. And as for feeling so dominates the glass so total that the plastic can only disrupt the already existing prejudices that particular material.
Sure, a metal frame had given handset more "premium feel", but a material which ironically is more "plastic" (retains its shape after deformation), against the plastic "elasticity" (returns to its original shape after trauma) had certainly made the glass shattered easier . Plastic can take up a lot of force and return to its original shape while the metal that deforms adds a large and permanent load on the surrounding materials, which is inconsistent when it is combined with glass! (Although a first blow not break the glass so the load is retained and results in the glass can be easily crushed by a blow quite easy to take the wrong place).
The phone feels incredibly thin and flexible, even though it is a hefty size larger than what I'm used to from Sony's compact models.
Durability I can not comment on much since I only had it for about two weeks, but it has already survived a couple of cases, from a shelf into a basin and from more than a meter down the tiles to name those likely had ( did) crushed glass on either side of a Sony. Without getting so much as a brand (even when I examine with illuminated 50x magnifying glass).
The feeling is really outstanding, do not know how to explain it, but also a friend who still use a Galaxy Alpha (built just for having the "premium-feeling") think that it feels superb!
For your exterior as the phone, as many others have said, extremely slippery! The rounded edges of the glass allows it to glide ridiculously easy and it really is no exaggeration that the weight of the charger cord causing it to fall off even a sofa with reclining seat!
I underestimated this when the same was said of Sony ear cups, but this is really in a class by itself!
Have supposed to fix this with either a "film" on the back (just to cut a moderate piece of anything, instead of whining about it "not available") or just some little "feet" of electrical tape or similar. A small round paw in every corner, in a reasonably grip material (real electrical tape, not PVC, but perhaps with PVC, at worst, something like vulcanizing tape) should provide enough friction to stop the glide, without making it is difficult to take out of your pocket or thick.
The software is perhaps no big shot as it is, but it is easy to get used to certain things and others can be compensated for. I installed the Nova Launcher, but not begun to use it when I want to get a proper feel for UIT first.
It's mostly stock Android, with a few "tweaks". The step from Sony is very small and I miss having more to do with habit than actual functionality. It's just different, not worse. ;-)
The absence of an "app-drawer" is nothing to interfere in length, it is just to create some directories and put everything into them, with their own categorization, which only facilitates Really! I have collected all on a single page, with six catalogs, six applications, two 4x1 widgets and five apps to the bottom field, which is totally modifiable, and even the phone can be removed (it is possible to add a directory with, so are you absolutely have to have an "app-drawer" so it is quite possible even with EMUI).
The hardware, Kirin 950, I can not say much about yet either. It chops occasionally in a game that was floating on the Z3c without problems, but it is guaranteed to the graphics part that bothered (choppy only when there is a lot of animations at once) and better support for various protocols are constantly on the front.
4GB of RAM is really good, many apps consume a lot more RAM now that it is available, which is hardly bad, but rather a sign that they can work better!
Got the phone "free" to bind subscription for two more years, and then 299, - / month for the "fixed price" with 3GB data is all I need and can not get much cheaper so it was really free! (Three).
Have "mobile broadband" with unlimited data, I want to have the data so I can take with me 4G stick and laptop! ;-)
I certainly have no experience of the last generation (or two) of premium headphones, but is difficult to imagine any functionality that would be worth several thousand or several hundred a month to!
However, hunting for a really small phone as a supplement, but obviously this is the iPhone SE alone in its class, with the "latest" Android handsets that can be said to be near, or even useful, despite low demands, from 2013 at the latest ...
How can it be that not a single manufacturer has given up on building a phone for those who do not need a full-fledged computer in your pocket, but still want the ability to check when the bus is going, where you are when you are lost or reading a book on the train?
A water and shock resistant handset over 100g, with 3.5-4 "screen in the 720, with a midrange chip and good battery life (a small phone can be thicker and a small screen uses less power), would surely sell like hot melts in sunshine! just look at how well the iPhone SE sells ... (I want to have cheaper, more durable and more free).
