Honor 8 available in the US from today, but only in white and blue colors
The Honor 8 pre-orders opened in the United States last week with the promise of availability as soon as possible. Today, the Chinese handset maker announced customers can go ahead and purchase the Honor 8 at various retailers across the country.

Although the company previously announced the Honor 8 will be available in multiple colors, US customers will only be able to grab either the white or blue versions. In fact, just one retailer that we know of has the Sapphire Blue version of the Honor 8.

But let's see where you can get the Honor 8, if you didn't already pre-ordered one. You first choice could the Honor's own website where you can get the white Honor 8 for $400 outright.

However, if you're willing to pick it up from a store instead of just waiting to be delivered to your home, you can head over to the nearest Best Buy location and get the Honor 8 for $400. The good news is Best Buy also sells the blue version of the smartphone, so if you don't like the white model you can buy this one.

Then there's Amazon where you will find the Honor 8 in Pearl White for $397.45. You can opt to have it delivered the same day if you order it within a certain time limit. You will find the Midnight Black version as well, but it's not sold directly by Amazon. Also, it will be delivered between September 13-28, so it's more like a pre-order.

The Honor 8 is available for purchase at B&H Photo for $400. As expected, the white version is up for grabs, but the black model is coming soon.

Last but not least, Newegg has an interesting offer for those who purchase the Honor 8. They will receive the JBL Coach on-ear Bluetooth headphones worth $125, for free. A $10 worth transparent case for Honor 8 will be offered as free gift as well.

You can buy the white Honor 8 at Newegg for $400. The blue model is supposed to arrive on September 11, while the blue version might be available around October 20.

Got the white one delivered Saturday from Newegg with the headphones. So far all is good although I wish the camera was a bit better in low light (needs better algorithms). Refocus/bokah effects are a ton better than what the m8 had though - can get some very nice shots

Haven't tried any refocus on it, I'll have to give it a try sometime.

Compared to? It's better than the Nexus 5x for sure. I think it's an average speaker really.

To my lg g5, Xperia XA ultra and note 5. My Note 5 ain't even loud but it kicks the crap out of the honor 8. I had to return the 8 to bestbuy because of that.

Might be your source, mine gets loud (not quite up there with the G5 though, that is insanely loud for mono) but it is still tinny. Good enough for notifications.

Be thankful for that, for that is the reason affordable flagship grade smartphones are available ubiquitously. We are not taking the brunt of the heat anyway; the smartphone companies are (:
