I knew what to expect with the ui because I had an Honor 5x so like with every other phone, Nova was the first install. The phone is very premium feeling but way too fragile and slippery(like all phones designed this way), no way would I use this without a case. My favorite thing about it is the rear finger print scanner, it is very fast and accurate, it reads my finger every time. I also like being able to pull the notifications down with it. The battery life is great, I have had it off the charger for right at 10 hours and I am sitting at 58% with 2h 52m sot. The phone is not a keeper for me simply for one reason...the screen is too small. I have been using the Note 5 and a couple other 5.5" screen phones and this just does not cut it. I cant go lower that 5.5" anymore, other than that and not being able to quick launch the camera this phone is winner. I will probably sell it since I will either get the Moto Z Play or I might go super budget and get the Zmax Pro. I have had the first two Zmax phones and really liked them. If anyone has a Moto Z Play unlocked version I would trade, this Honor is the 64 gig version with 4 gigs ram.
