Guys, I am using this phone for six months now and I am going to be objective as I can. First of all - I love my Honor 7! Currently I'm running version B370 which is it's third update since I got the phone, so you see that the updates are coming regularly (got the marshmallow update months ago...). Battery life is pretty good and what's also great is that the phone charges really fast (I'm using huawei 9v2a fast charger), half an hour charge is sufficient enough to last you the whole day. Games are running relatively smooth considering this is a 2015 mid-range phone. The huawei UI (Emotion UI) was strange at first, so I used Nova launcher (which anyone who dislikes EMUI can use and customize their UI), but I really started to like the EMUI (especially after few updates) and now I stopped using third-party launchers all together and sincerely enjoy the huawei's Emotion UI (which is, compared to stock Android, absolutely gorgeous!). Huawei EMUI is half way between Android UI and iOS and I suggest that all of Huawei's users try it out. Fingerprint scanner is surprisingly fast and accurate, a feature that I thought I wouldn't use, but my Honor phone proved me otherwise. Someone mentioned that the programmable smart button can be a nuisance if you set it as a shortcut to an app with one short press, but that "problem" is so easy to fix that it can't be considered a problem at all; you can either a) disable the smart button or b) assign it as a shortcut on double-press or a long press (this is what I did, works great!)
The conclusion to my rather long opinion on this phone is simple; I got a whole lot more than I bargained for!

AnonD-554358, 29 Jun 2016hi, i iam from malaysia. Does huawei honor 7 are really have whatsapp notifications problem. B... moreHi Eizmeer,
I had the same issue as you with WhatsApp notifications not coming through. I think it is down to the phone wanting to preserve battery life by limiting the amount of times that it syncs notifications. So the fix that I used was to install a free third party app called PNF No-Root. It works fine for me now and all WhatsApp notifications come through straight away.
It sets a heartbeat limit to your choice for push notifications. I set mine to 5 mins, so every 5 mins, the phone will check for notifications of the type that WhatsApp use.
I hope it works for you the same it works for me.
