Hi, i baught my Huawei P8 Lite about 4 months ago. Changed from my samsung S4 to this phone. Its by far the worst phone regarding Data usage? all 3 of my friends have the same phone as i do and have the same problem. I have restricted back-round data and all sorts. I baught 1GB on Saturday morning and this morning i have 188MB left. i haven't opened any apps but whatsapp. PLEASE HELP - its so expensive. How can i make the data usage less?
P8 lite is a very good and reliable mobile phone in terms of price, durability, Camera quality, Guest mode, Battery time (not on 3G/4G), Signal strength etc. The only problem with the handset is that its not Full HD means picture resolution is not good.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2016Samsung j5 or huvawei p8 lite??? I m facing the same situation n need quick advice in one hour..Galaxy J5 is only has 1,5 GB. The P8 lite ALE-L21 comes with 2 GB. I would recommended P8 lite ALE-L21, beside 2 GB RAM, it has double tap to wake feature. Samsung Galaxies never use that feature in default.

The phone is crab. It is so bad that my 8 year old son refuses to give me his iPhone 4s in its exchange. 1st the battery does not last as long as they claim. I use it as a second phone but it last 1/2 as long as my iPhone 6s last. I would be lucky if it lasts for 1 day. and this is with it being in my bag and not in use. When i use I get max 12hours. It charges for over 3 hours most times. It cannot run CSR racing II. No Gyro sensors ... Wait no sensors at all. The only thing lovely about the phone phone is the shake thingy to change the wall papers and the price. But you are probably better of buying an entry level samsung than this phone. If you need a phone to read emails, sms and whatsapp + calls. Then it is brilliant. But please please please stop comparing it with main streams.The 13MP camera is not even as good as it claims to be.

They (Android) keep on failing.there is always some glych or teething issue. I keep hearing about wifi issues which worries me as I bought this phone as a back up to my lg g4 that has a "known problem" with is chip. This p8 lite feels good in the hand and so lovely to use, but I fear there is a built in self destruct as with all the other Android phones out there beside Samsung
It pisses me off that you spend good money on these phones and your lucky to get over a year out of them before they become dysfunctional.fingers crossed. Again
I have had my phone for about 8 months now. It worked flawless for a while but coming from a Nexus 5 to this had its problems. The screen on this phone is not as sensitive when typing. Up until recently everything was perfect till all my photos got corrupt on the phone memory. They appeared as black with no thumbnail, my usual backup also got corrupted with this so was left with nothing. I called Huawei who could only say sorry. After reboot phone is okay but i am scared to take photos as the memory card also got corrupted. Both sides. I am now looking for a new phone but feel a bit put off..was thinking 5c.. but maybe not.
I can`t update my p8 lite to marschmallow 6.0 I am using ALE-L21 and still using 5.0.1 Lollipop. Does anyone knows why I can`t update to marschmallow. I`m from Macedonia. Anyone please help!!!

From what I saw, it's a common problem and the "solution" (if you can call that a solution) is to change to default google keyboard, which doesn't have the swype function. I'm really disappointed with this.
Great phone with one flaw - MMS.
MMS fails to retrieve messages, and when a message is stuck the data connection also goes offline. Have also had problems with WiFi failing to connect but working OK after a reboot. Very frustrating, I have returned it under warranty after only 2 months.
Expecting the problem to be fixed.
p8 lite Huawei is one of the best-selling phones in 2015. In buying it do not doubt
