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.

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.

Well...I've been using this phone for almost 2 years now and ...I dropped my phone somewhere in August and my phone is bent.. after 3 months ...my camera started malfunctioning....it would not focus on pictures and it would shake non stop unless I put a magnet beside my camera.. right now....I don't have the time to go and check out what's wrong with my rear camera...I have a feeling that something broke inside my camera... something to do with the auto stabilizing mod....I hope to hear good opinions on how to fix this problem
