Hey bassam if you are in jeddah I could hook you up with a silver P8 max if you want.
So far I'm happy with my device the problem is though it doesn't fit comfortably in my work uniform, I am contemplating selling it.
bashee, 30 Aug 2015IS this water proof?Not exactly water-proof, but there is a nano-coating protecting against splashes, etc.

I think all the apps from the google account should be loading then automatically. I however had to download my apps manually, because had been away from Android some time :)
Soover says: "yes you can sync contacts normally, once you download google play and sign in with your gmail account all sync options work perfectly , just like a regular android phone"

Pate64, 30 Aug 2015I ordered mine from vopmart and can recommend the shop.Hi, I contacted vopmart.com and they informed me that the device is supporting Arabic language with no need to install any additional package. So my question is this website safe or not as per your dealing with them ?)

Again my concern is to buy it from a website like aliexpress and don't find the Arabic package installed on the device.
Three weeks gone with the P8max and here are some points:
One of the fastest surfboards I ever had, great functionality and the huge screen helps reading the desktop versions, no mobile sites needed. Using Chrome and it works smoothly and flawlessly, imo it's better than the huawei browser
This is really good, in tablet class certainly the best in the world, in phone class, one of the best, as good as my previous phones (IP6+, Samsung S6 Edge, Huawei Mate 7).
Overall speed, etc:
Very smooth and speedy functions, EMUI 3,1 and Lollipop are working seamlessly together, no third party launchers needed.
Super! I get screen-on-times like 7-8 hours with a charge and there is still 15% left in the battery.
This is absolutely great, go and buy this if you like to have a tablet and a phone combined. It fits to pockets and provides you with total mobile computing experience.

Pate64, 10 Aug 2015I ordered mine from China. Fast and reliable delivery of 4-5 days to Northern EuropeHello, could you please tell me the website you ordered the mobile through it ???!!!
I'm living in gulf region and interested in having the p8 Max also.
soover samsung, 27 Aug 2015Try jadopado its middle east based and in the UAE :)Hi, I'm also living in gulf region and willing to have p8 Max but it's clear that the phone will take so long to be released here.can you suggest the trusted website to buy the mobile from it and certainly I'm looking for the versions which supports Arabic language?!
Lol, 29 Aug 2015Try aliexpress.com best price just make sure seller reliable Is aliexpress is a trusted site to deal with. I'm living in gulf region and interested in having p8 max which is not launched here and seems that it will take so long to be released in the gulf.
Again can you suggest the trusted website to buy the p8 Max from it.

No english guide for the P8 max but the P8 has basically the same features and specs and bands, so go from there the link will take you to the manual.

I can tell you LOOOVVVE your phablet because of your GREAT review and your willingness to answer our questions! Thanks for the list of the Networks covered by this phone but, I will be honest, I don't know enough about the nuts and bolts of that to be able to figure it out. I hear that you can have some things (like maybe voice but not text) with some providers. I asked someone who happens to be located here in Virginia some questions. I found him because he is selling a P8MAX on ebay in order to buy a MEDIAPAD X2. He is on the Cricket network and says everything works fine except he doesn't get 4G LTE - only 4G. I am still trying to find a provider that can support EVERYTHING. I also have to admit... I am scared that I don't know enough about Android to successfully set up the phone. I usually Google my questions about my Note 2 and there are a million answers. I Google P8MAX and it's a vast wasteland out there! Lol! I am trying to convince myself that it is because it is so new... I am also wondering about repairs here in the USA. I am used to paying insurance through Verizon. What happens if this phone breaks? Where do you take it for repairs? I have been researching this phablet since about March of this year. I LOVE it but I guess you can tell by my questions that I am still pretty clueless!
