I have been using Huawei P2 32gig and 2gig RAM version for at least 3 months now and I am fairly happy with it. I really cannot complain much on the battery as I basically have my portable wifi hotspot turned on practically for half of the day and sometimes longer so I have no choice but to carry with me a power bank to give the battery enough juice to last the whole day or at least while I am out. Although I did try it several times during weekend not to use the portable hot spot as I have wifi at home and it does last longer. I am using right now two other phones; Iphone 5 and a BlackBerry Z10 and spec wise all three are pretty close to each other including the battery. But since I use the data plan on my P2 (with or without wifi)surely it is the fastest one to run out of juice among the three phones. But in general I have had no problems with it similar to the issues I have read in the comments. I guess I am lucky to get a good unit or so. My only gripe if there is one is that like one guy mentioned for this particular model it would seem Huawei has no plan to allow SW updates. But honestly that is not a deal breaker for me. I am fine using it's current android version of 4.1.2. I did not buy this phone for its software. I bought it for its spec plus the fact Huawei offered a 60% discount so to me its a steal and great deal. Absolutely no complaints.

If yoir using Mobile data trafic its natural. This is My suggestion. If yoir using Wifi only you can turn of the setting of the LTE signal of your network so that you can save more power and the heat will be lesser. Thank you 😄

I have the GL07S which is the Japanese version of this phone with a virtually identical spec. The phone is one year old and the power button has been failing on it for weeks. I just had to install a software fix to use the volume button to turn the phone on. A phone that lasts just one year what would you think? Needless to say I won't be recommending or buying Huawei again. I should also add that they don't issue Android updates so you're stuck with whatever version your phone comes in. Avoid.

Absolutely horrific phone. Didn't work out of the box, hardware issues involving the screen and HD images, cut out the sim card whenever it felt like, which could be up to 25 times in a day, causing constant restarts. Shut down apps when it felt like, terrible battery life, needlessly slippery design meaning it was useless to use with gloves on, even though it specifically shouted about its gloves mode. Refused to notify me on updates from time to time, still on 4.1 Jellybean even though updates to 4.3 and 4.4 were promised: never delivered by Huawei through obvious lack of care. Got incredibly slow, incredibly quickly and called for constant restarts, awful cropping mechanism in the default gallery meant it was essential you download something else such as QuickPic. Froze frequently,ugly and unchangeable UI, which looks stupidly childish and simplistic, and a total absence of an app tray means your screen would get very clogged, very quickly.

The one and only positive is that it's aesthetically nice.

1/10. Practically no redeeming qualities on this phone.
