Shajahan, 22 Sep 2019Still using G8 and battering draining so fast, you can try some techniques .... Install apps ... moreusing G8 presently and i'm enjoying it but the battery is draining very fast and that is the only challenge
Hassan, 08 Mar 2019Please tell me, Is Huawei g8 water proof or not??Yes, my phone got splash by salt water when im going to fishing but its still working good till now
Still using G8 and battering draining so fast, you can try some techniques ....
Install apps like battery drainer or similar.
Charge your phone like 85 to 90 %
Now move to a well ventilated and cooled area, switch on fan and AC, remove any phone cover. To avoid any aftermath of over heating. You may wear gloves and eye protection :)
Now the intention is to discharge the battery as fast as possible.
So turn on all NFC, Bluetooth, WiFi hotspot, GPS, Full brightness
Start battery draining app and switch on all possible things, if it is still not draining, turn on heavy graphic app or play video and switch between these apps.
When battery level reach below 20 % re-start your phone.
Make all settings back to normal.
Remove any unwanted apps. Remove cache of apps using PhoneManager.
Install AutoRunManager and disable auto runs of unwanted apps or apps you rarely use(Basic mode is enough).
Now charge your phone to ~95%.
Avoid charging overnight. Always Unplug when fully charged (better a bit less than 100%).
Keep charging your phone frequently if possible. Try to charge when it falls below 40% always. Never allow to drop battery below 20%.
Hope this should help to keep using your G8 or other older Android phone.
Reez, 26 Apr 2019Im using G8 since 2016 until April 2019.

In june,2018 it got run over by a huge truck and it was just beneath its large tire!! Surprisingly my phone still works. My other accessories with it got smashed. untill September 2019 I use it. Then after fall several times from my hand, the display got cracked and I have changed it this month.
The main problem with my phone is it slow. And battery is draining severely. So, nowadays I think I will jump to another phone. But I will miss it. :)
Worst experience.. Huawei consistent on notworking on RAM 3gb ram and it gives u only 600-700mb free ram to run.. never go for Huawei untill it's ur last choice.. I don't recommend Huawei..get urself samsung or HTC it'll never disappoint

Im using G8 since 2016 until April 2019.
My phone several time fall from my hand into the ground. Got crack at the left top of the phone. But Its still running well. Data, wifi, making call, receive call, camera and playing clash of clash on it not a problem.
But a few month since Nov 2018-April 2019 my G8 having a bad issue, the battery drain so fast that i have to charge it 5-6 time per day sometimes more depending on my usage.
Ive change the battery once but the problem still exist. During my daily usage, the phone hot while connect using data and replying my whatapp. The repairman said is cause of the motherboard.
So i guess its time to me to change for a new phone and say good bye to my trusted lasting G8. Its a good phone.

Been using this for two years.... the only downside of it is overheating issues and the fingerprint sensor.
9 out of 10 enroll failed. Tried cleaning but still doesn't work.
Aljun, 07 Dec 2017Please update the OS to nougat. How does one update their g8 - I have tried but it won't let me.
I've had Huawei G8 for around 3 years at this point, right after having an iPhone. I can say that it is a great phone, as somebody who used to shun Android I now will never purchase an iPhone and will stick to Android. The camera is amazing, with features such as "Good Food", "Beauty", and "HDR". In addition, it runs really smoothly, with no sudden system failures (as I have had with ALL of my Apple products in the past. Though it may not compare to newer models, for those looking for a cheap yet effective and long lasting phone it's a definite choice for you.
