    Hi Glenn.
    I got my 6gb ram 8x max from VT Store in Hongkong and I am very happy with it. There is one small problem which peaple should know about before buying. I live in a rural area and because there is np 800mhz LTE band.I only get a H+ (3.5 g) isignal n my home. There is no problem in towns where a full LTE signal is available on the 2100 mhz band. Anybody living in a rural area should be aware of this.
    Thanks for the informative videos.

    I live in Belgium, will this phone work for me? I'm wondering… Because I'm planning to buy it on Ali express but I'm afraid it might not work for me… Could you please help me? What's the difference between global and Mondial version? I'm really confused about that… Which version works for Europe? For Belgium? I guess that I if it worked for you, I could work for me right?
    Very good review by the way! ?????? Not too long, you did an excellent job! ??


    Just got mine yesterday and I love it with 2 problems. I already owned a
    Honor Note 8 which is 6.6 inches and it was a WONDERFUL phone. I only
    replaced it because I cracked the screen but it functionally worked
    fine. This phone is 7.2 inches and it is actually the same size as the
    6.6 is and I wanted an OBVIOUS bigger phone. NOW, the screen is
    probably 7.2 because the bezels are smaller but it is too SKINNY to be a
    7inch phone. Its too long for the width. These phones are NOT
    phablets, they are tall phones. A TRUE phablet is the Huawei MediaPad
    X1 & 2 which both are 7inches but they are TRUE TABLETS with phone
    capabilities. I used to own one but it didnt work on Tmobile and it
    hurt me to have to send it back. I would still be using it today if I
    were on att back then. 8x max has a clear screen, I AM getting 4g in
    Southern United States on att. I was only getting 3g with my Note 8 but
    I dont see the big deal with all of this. When I click youtube,
    youtube comes up and it doesnt buffer. I got this phone for $220.00
    from Giztop and it came in 2 wks. It had Playstore on it but I did a
    factory reset and reinstalled it myself. I dont trust a phone that has
    been tampered with by a seller, aint no tellin what else they put on it.

    All in all, this phone is just like all others. My husband has the Note
    9 and I dont see the difference in the two. I dont see a need to buy a
    new phone every year like most. It's a damned phone. I just surf the
    web and watch my videos and youtube. I dont know what else MOST are
    looking for. Do we REALLY use all of the stuff that these phones claim
    to do? MOST DONT. Buy this phone and I will NEVER buy another phone
    over $300.00. I will always use Huawei phones until the US stops them
    from being shipped over here because it WILL happen soon because these
    phones are catching on and they already are starting with Huawei by
    lying CLAIMING that they are spying on us. Hell, ALL phones are made in
    China. ALL. These second problem is, you CANT change the launcher
    after the system update. I HATE that and if I KNEW THAT, I wouldnt have
    bought this phone. But since I have to wait to get another phone over a
    mth, I will just have to live with it but on a scale from 1 to 10, I
    give this a 9.5.

    Hello Glenn. Thank you for your review! Very much appreciated.

    I am thinking of buying the 8x Max, but I was wondering if it has a standby "Notification LED" that flashes when you receive a text message or email?

    Thanks for the video
    I think to buy the phone now . do you recommend it .?
    And can you make more video about the phone like in depth review . Battery draining test and do on …..

    Bit of a strange decision of Honor to use the SD 636 rather than the equivalent Kirin. Maybe some yield issues for HiSilicon's 12nm process?

    Noticed there is something keep flashing in top of the front camera when the screen is unlocked….. Any idea what it is?? Already bought this phone and it's on it's way…. Thanks for the video mate????

    Well done Glenn! Anything you dislike about the phone & how does speakers compare to your IPhone & Note 9? Trying to decide between 8x Max, Honor Enjoy Max (same phone with the SD 660 & leather back) Mi max 3, Honor Note 10… leaning towards the Enjoy Max or the Note 10 because $ for me isn’t main concern between the phones. Thx & keep up the good work!!

    H, thanks for addressing the chinese text problem. I suppose you could ignore it or use a lockscreen that covers it in some way. Will you be trying a launcher? If you could verify that nova launcher and others work thats would be great. I found this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcSOzfhxO1Q on changing the launcher so i assume it works on this EMUI, but it can't harm to check

    Great video review Glenn ?. I have to say for the price it's a very good phone. The photo quality looks good to me & it's definitely a great device for watching YouTube content too. So keep up the amazing work Buddy ??
