Hi Gavin, as an Honor 5c and Huawei Nova owner I agree that they make great phones for the price. I still have no idea how they manage to get this much battery life, the software seems to be extremely smart.
One possible issue is the missing LTE bands 7 and 20, though – at least here in Germany they are used in the rural areas.
I am not sure about the Honor 5C or Nova, but I am sure the Honor 8, 8 Pro and Honor 9 have band 20 in the UK. No idea about band 7 though without checking.
