Roses are red. The dongle life sucks. You can get the Honor 8 for around 200 bucks.
The Honor 8 was launched just over a year ago to critical acclaim, with Huawei's attempt at providing flagship specifications and an exception build in the sub-US$500 price range proving to be largely successful. It was released in multiple variants, with a 3 GB of RAM variant and a 32 GB of storage being intended for markets outside the US.
You can get high-value deals of the various models today at some vendors online. At Amazon, you can get the variant with 32 GB of storage for US$259, and the 64 GB version for US$334.99, both of which are deals that save you over US$100 on regular prices. Both variants house 4 GB of RAM.
On Chinese website Aliexpress, you can get an even better deal. A better deal, anyway, if you're willing to trade an extra gigabyte of RAM for about US$25. The 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage versions—released for markets outside the US—sell for US$229.99. That's effectively a last-gen premium device for nigh-budget prices.
You'd do well to check the available LTE bands on the Aliexpress deal before purchasing, though, as there's a high chance it doesn't play nice with western LTE frequencies.
The Honor 8 sports a 5.2" FHD display, up to 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, dual rear cameras, and HiSilicon's Kirin 950.
