Love this handst, for the most part. It is fast, I can load it up and work it without it getting excessively hot, it has a nice UI, it, for me, specs up well for a mid range phone. Good volume, lots of cool features and fits in the hand well. Great screen resolution and contrast. Take good photos. The only cons for myself are call dropouts which have been localised to the handset (same issues with 3 G8 handsets) and EMUI, which the phone would do much better without. Lollipop is much more user friendly as a stand alone OS.
AnonD-504378, 19 Feb 2016please if you have any solution let me know Thanks go to Setting, then to Language & input, then Keyboard, then switch off the language you don't need to use.
Purchased this phone in Australia 2 weeks ago, upgrading from an iPhone 4 and am overall happy with it.
Loved the look and feel of the Huawei- it's very sleek and slimline, but now that I have it it is BIG! Ladies: it doesn't fit in many of the clutchbags which is a pain when you want to go out. Could only get a clear cover for it too, no fancy covers like Samsung and Apple phones. :(
Camera is good- one of the main reasons for my choice. Colours are clear and true, and the many options to improve photos as you take them (beauty, good food) are great! :)
The ability to take photo by touching Fingerprint scan on the back is great for selfies. :)
Finding little things frustrating, but not sure if that's cos it's my first Android phone.
Hate the location of the on/off button right next to volume. :(
Not sure how to do screenshots.
Can't allocate individual tones against contacts for both texts and phonecalls. Just one tone per contact.
Audio recorder pics up lots of background noise. :(
Limited built-in Emojis and can't access them on Google keyboard so had to download an Emoji app and use that as default keyboard. :(
Can't comment on graphics etc as I don't use Games.
Battery life seems Ok but I don't use many apps compared to some people.
The poor staff in the phone shop must be sick of me coming in asking questions as the phone came with no instruction book or online help.
I'm sure once I'm used to the phone I will love it.
Overall good phone for the price. Give it a go :)
AnonD-504378, 19 Feb 2016how to remove language from huawei g8 keyboard ? please helpGo to Settings then scroll down to Language and Input.
From here you can choose the language and also choose the keyboard type.
I wanted to be able to use more Emojis than was available in the built in keyboard, so first changed to the Google keyboard (already installed). Couldn't find Emoji button on it.
Ended up installing an Emoji app I downloaded and now use that as default keyboard.
Hope this helps.
