    I really liked the honor 8. The helpful thing is the the issues I have I believe are 100% software related as when it was on EMUI 4.1 + 6.0.1, everything was fine. So before I sell it I plan to do a factory reset and test it out to make sure. If I notice this issue still happening on a clean install, I may either send it back as libra did or do a downgrade myself.

    It's a nice phone...I just decided to move up to a phablet reluctantly for better organization and productivity reasons.
    I think that's a great plan. I hope you'll have better luck than me with downgrading.

    That's understandable. In the end, you have to do what works for you. I agree about the phone being nice.

    After a few days with the Pixel, I feel confident enough to give away my Honor 8.

    My sister's fiance needs a better phone since they are switching carriers. They don't need wifi calling so it should be just fine for them.

    I didn't think this day would come so soon but they really appreciate this gesture. She wanted to give me money but I told her to keep it. I'm so glad to do this, it would be great for him.

    Time to retire my phone dealing...
    Very nice. :)

    So we managed to sell our old mattress. They're​ coming today to get it. It's still in good condition, even with the factory defect. It was always a bit firm for us as well.

    We were going to pay someone to take it but this works out better.

    We only sold it for £20. Better than paying someone to take it!

    Ooh okay, I see. I had no idea that you had both actually.
    Yeah. I really need to stop being sentimental and move some stuff to downsize.

    I still prefer smaller phones...But because I use eBooks, I'd rather have the convenience of being able to have my social work reference books on a more readable screen and not always have to pull my tablet out to do that.

    If your sister is looking and I get that calling bug taken care of, a deal can certain be made.

    I'll likely post stuff on Android Central sometime this week once the replacement arrives and gets set up and such.

    It's why I was looking through my current setup and felt a compact phablet is the best fit at this point.

    Yes, it is a black one. It's in great condition, all the accessories are unused and i didn't even used the selfie stick package.

    It took almost a week for it to catch up to me and make me feel unwell. Luckily I've been feeling OK ever since.

    So fortunately my replacement was delivered late yesterday. I'm in the process of setting it up now.

    I'm still impressed as to how MSFT still managed to fit the same sized screen with a better screen and removable battery in a slightly smaller footprint.

    Will do. I'm definitely going to use my Huawei watch with it to better manage my commutes.

    Tonight is the first night. The chemical smell is very strong. We've been airing it out for the last two nights.

    It's still not great but will survive.

    Initial impressions: I like this device so far.

    It is a big device and does take so getting used to as I haven't used a device this size in a while. Comparatively speaking, the 950XL feels a lot more compact, even though dimensions wise, it is about 85% smaller.

    On the performance level, the phone is quick...Like with the Mi 5 before it, I disable system transitions so the phone screams. Aesthetically, it looks really good. Curved screen is somewhat of a gimmick (this DOES lacks the Edge software as seen in the Galaxy series), but looks great.

    Camera is TBD...I've got to take the GF's in-laws to Ellis Island Tuesday so I'll test it out then.

    Still need to set it up how I fully want, but I'm looking forward to using it.
