    Hi There! I realize that I'm APITA. Haven't posted on this thread lately. I'm celebrating a little early. I've had a couple of drinks tonight. I just want to be the first one to wish you a Happy and Prosperous new year. I have been blessed this year. I found Windows Central and made new friends here. IMHO this is the best help forum I have ever been apart of. I'm planning on hanging around here for as long as I'm welcome, so please get use to this old country boy and his weird ways.
    The Donald is scaring me and I'm hoping for the best for my country. Surely there are still some smart people left in Washington that will keep America great!
    Happy New Year!

    Oh, those are great news, congratulations. Does that mean you'll get more than a decent job and won't have to worry about a PITA supervisor? :D
    Unless you're your own boss, there is always the chance of having a pain in the *** supervisor...

    I'm glad that you're doing well in your classes! Good luck.

    I certainly hope that 2017 will be better for you in terms of health. I know this year was terrible for you with illness.
    Thanks for your well wishes Laura. We'll see what 2017 brings...

    Sorry I missed you! I haven't been around as much late night, since I've gotten some health problems sorted. I used to be online at late hours since I couldn't sleep.
    As long as things are better for you in the health department, that's good news.

    So the Honor 8 is exactly what I thought it would be. And I still stand by my thought...I was better off with either a HTC 10 or an LG G5 - but they remained too expensive for me. Don't get me wrong: itsa really good phone and the audio for my needs is better than I hoped. But software wise, EMUI 4.1 = MIUI 7. According to Huawei, I'll see EMUI 5.0 in February (which means I'm more likely to get it in March).

    The best thing about the Honor 8 is that it feels like a work phone and I'm not using it much. Which is exactly what I wanted. So I'll keep it.

    In that case, it's good that you got what you wanted. I can assure you that it has better battery life over the Robin though. Since you're not using it much, it would probably go for days for you. I saw a review from someone who has 3 day battery life because they use it very lightly.

    I figured I'd get better performance from the chip and the slightly bigger battery. I knew the Robin's battery life was Nexus 5 bad buying it...and it didn't disappoint. I bought what was within my budget. It'll do what I want just fine. I don't think it'll play as nicely with my Moto Sport (the 360 was the same way with the Mi5), but it should be OK.

    Ohh okay, let us know how that goes for you too. I'm curious. It's funny how the Honor 8 and the Lumia 950 have the same battery but in my experience, totally different battery life. I'm aware of the different resolutions but still.

    I expect a solid day's worth of battery life, maybe 1.5 days. That's all. The 2016 chips were vastly more efficient than the 2015 ones. Even the 625 wipes the floor with the 808.

    It will give you that. I get that all the time without any effort or tweaking on my end. My general regular usage gets me a day and 6 hours. If you are a heavy user, it's still possible to get a day. Remember to whitelist apps you want notifications from.
