    Those are interesting battery claims.

    Not bad, I'm getting ready to upgrade my OPO, the OP3T looks very nice, but still only 1080p.

    Will wait for some reviews, performance needs to be at the top of the table, and those battery claims need validating before I'd consider a purchase.

    I still have the Honor 4X, purely because of the battery life. I use the phone as a SatNav in the van all day, with GPS, Bluetooth and Mobile data all enabled and I still have 50% left when I get home.

    My HTC One and Nexus 5 both require charging before the end of the working day, when used in the same fashion. Admittedly, both are much higher spec phones, but they don't do the job any differently or better.

    Re: Honor 8 Pro flagship smartphone released in the UK

    I bought the kids a couple of cheap UMI's a few years back and a Plus' last year. They've been great value for money so I think I'd rather go for a Plus E or Z Pro at less than half the price for a similar spec.

    Bought the Moto X Play for a similar reason, 3600 mA battery with a mid range spec sheet gives a 2 day performance

    Interested to see if this one become widely spread

    Not used the feature much but used one of the Plus at Xmas to travel up to the midlands and it was spot on. I think there was an issue with either the Hammer or Iron a few years back but I'm sure there was a fix for it as well.

    I have the Honor 6X with a 3340mah battery and get a minimum a 2 days sometimes 3, The Kirin SoC's are well optimised for just sipping power.
