I bought the Huawei P8 Lite just 2 weeks ago, and I give it a 9/10.
1. Camera is superb, but low light images are not that good. Not saying low light images are bad, just not great.
2. Battery backup is quite good. Loses charge comparatively quickly but charges back again very fast.
3. No lag at all, even while playing games like Modern Combat 5, Brothers in Arms 3, Asphalt 8, Need for Speed Most Wanted, etc.
4. Display is great, and produces colour really nicely. Can go to really bright or really dim (with help of Night Mode app). Sunlight legibility is awesome.
5. Storage space is really sufficient, with 16GB internal memory and 8GB SD Card (which I have put).
6. The UI is really fluid and easy to use too, with some really cool themes with many submitted by users themselves!
7. Call quality is superb, no issues found with it.
8. Design is also really nice and appealing and it has a metal brush back which is awesome.
9. Other stuff like FM Radio, Music, YouTube, etc. is really great and lag-free without any issues.
The only problem I faced while using this phone is that the keyboard sometimes registers two letters instead of one,while typing really fast without autocorrect. (Like for typing ' keyboard ' really fast, it sometimes [ I repeat, SOMETIMES ] registers it as ' keybooardd '.
Overall, I rate it 8/10.
Really great phone, go for it.

Please anyone out there with some suggestions.
Got this mobile for about 3-4 months now and must say it's the best phone I had so far. No problems at all. I browse a lot and play online games every day and battery is not a problem. I charge it once a day overnight. A tip for people staying battery is draining too quick, when you close an app it's still actually running in background like all android phones do. That's why you will get notifications when your lives are full on certain games like candy crush and so on. To solve this and make your phone faster and battery last longer, go to "Phone Manager" it's an application factory fitted on the phone and scan or choose power saving scan. It will close unnecessary apps like that and increase battery life by couple of hours. Whatsapp and facebook will still work but other games or apps it sees as unnecessary will shut down completely until you open them again. And the camera quality on this phone is excellent too by the way. From someone going through different phones every month I would recommend the P8 lite
