I've been using it since it was launched, and till now it works just fine.The device runs on Android 5.1.1 with an exceptionally user friendly UI. Even me being a hardcore user, still juice remains there in battery. And as far as performance is concerned, I get some minor 1-2 second delays in app response which is expected from any device used from so long. Moreover, using your device for a long period of time and charging it to 100% lays an negative impact to the electrolysis in battery, so over a period of time battery lifes does drop but it did not too much in this mid-range device, still i get 4-5 hours of continuous use (with 70% brightness).Also the speaker sounds comparative better than today's most of the flagship devices. Furthermore both the front and rear cameras take spectacular clicks.Last but not the least, looking at the build, as soon as I hold my phone, it seems and feels it's just taken out of the box. It has gorilla glass 3 on front and at the back. Also the design is very dazzling with that beautifully penned "Huawei Middle East" logo, which looks mesmerizing to me.
Finally now after years of wait, Mate 10 is here and looking forward to get it in my pocket toooo!!
*For those having some performance/battery/heating issues, I suggest install Kuwaiti firmware, which eliminates these issues by almost 70 %.
