Default Got mah new phone!

Decided on the Honor 8, at $250 I couldn't say no. Received today and have been slowly moving stuff over.

Given I spend a ton of time in my car, I've noticed that my stereo is kinda cranky with Android vs iOS. I need to pick the playlist on my phone first then I can navigate through it with the steering wheel or stereo controls. Problem is it stays on just that list, is this a sign of I need to avoid my playlists when plugged in and just stick with the 'local music' section in the Music app? Surprisingly the stereo doesn't allow me to get to the playlist selection which I think is a limitation of the format of the phone vs using an SD card.

Question aside: Big screen, is very pretty. Went with blue just because and in light it's lovely, in lower light it looks pretty bland. Front and back glass makes it pretty slick so I plan to get a nice case for it, preferably soft because I'm a klutz. Debating how I like EMUI. I really enjoy having a version of Swype back, having to tap each character was a pain especially on a 4" screen. Getting used to different settings again, and looking for themes because I can customize stuff again.

So far things are good.

Honor is a nice phone, my missus now sports a 9'er and she's been happy as a deep sea clam - had 8 previously.

Where the hell did you get that at that price GF is in the market for a new phone, even though we don't have the money right now, I'd probably surprise her anyway, her Nexus 5 runs like crap, battery's shot etc etc.

I checked out the 9's, I couldn't find one for less than $450 which annoyed me. The newer hardware would have been nice.

Srs answer: Amazon Warehouse Deals. If you look hard enough amazeballs deals can be found. I've bought tabletop war games/models for close to 50% off, computer case for about 20, monitor for about 20, and now this phone. Just look for 'used like new' or other descriptors about the condition.

My case, an NZXT H440 in black/red iirc originally went for around 140 - 150. Nabbed it for closer to 120 with some 'cosmetic damage less than <blahXblah>. Got it and found nothing wrong with it, same with the table top stuff (no **** 50% off for ripped plastic), monitor.
