hello guys i would like to know how is this phone performance compared to note 3 and which better to use
I bought this phone.screen is not good camera is not good battery is not good overall it is very bad phone in my life Samsung galaxy y is better
My phone wark in chinees software or framware so acanot use it pls help fix it
I bought this phone six months ago .. In my opinion it is an excellent phone performance and fast, but the only problem is that the control bar does not go away
If i update my huawei g8 EMUI 3.1 to 4.0,will there be problem since i read some people said that it will lagg or crash if opening an app,if yes is there any way to get rid of it?
I have been using this phone for 8 months now, i bought the phone due to the fact of the low market price and also the options and quality of the phone. (I live in the UAE)
When i got the phone, i noticed immediately the building quality of the phone, which is quite very nice and solid, the finishing as well is very nice.
Started using the Camera, on Daylight, camera is pretty much fine, however, on low light, things are not the same, its not bad, but photos are not bright and sharp as you may want them .. i think flash is a bit weak.
Loading application, phone started to get bit heavy, but without freezing, still i enjoyed playing games on the phone, smoothly.
Screen quality is very good, however, it lack brightness in sunlight, and you probably will need to increase brightness.
Only when the software update came, everything changed, phone became very heavy, freezing all the time, phone turned to be a very annoying one.
2 weeks ago, the 6.0.1 software version was updated, i found it much better than before and phone started to perform much better (still have some problems)
Finally, i am very satisfied with the phone compared to its price, i personally find Huawei the most reliable Mobile Manufacturer at the moment and would certainly buy the next phone from the same company.
Bought it in Dubai UAE while on vacation.The salesman assured me that it will work in my country of residence..Canada.
Refuses to work on Data. Only works on wifi. Checked compatibility with Fido network, it is compatible.
Yet does not work outside of wifi,I am on fido network.
What a waste of my money. Will never trust a salesman again in my life!
Can any body please help ?
i am using this smart phone since 6 month and it's one of the most best for me.
Bought mine about 4 weeks ago. Was an overstock phone. Actually I was looking for a galaxy s7 edge, gold. I accidentally saw this beautiful Huawei gold G8, 16 GB. It was marked X8, probably a mistake made by the shopkeeper. In the past I would never even consider buying a Huawei. I immediately bought it, only because it's actually a very beautiful phone. You have to see it in real to see what I mean. It's a real headturner. After 4 weeks of daily use it also turned out to be a very solid device. It also feels solid since it's made from 1 piece alumunium. The gold color is a very close match to the real thing. It also turned out to be slightly wider than most popular phones, since I had trouble finding a matching screen protector. That contributes to a nicer screen image. Good cameras too, even under low light conditions. Like this phone and I hope it will keep performing as well as it did in the past 4 weeks.
Big disappointment. I had a Sony Z3 previously which I was totally satisfied with. I just wanted the Z5 as I was confident I would get the same quality as the Z3. But the guy at the store told me the Sony phones were "not exciting". He was very unspecific about what that actually meant, but he seemed very excited about the Huawei G8. So after a lot of deliberation I went for the G8. The screen resolution did seem better, and without really testing it that's all I could go on.
The processor is slow. It lags as I try to flip between apps. In app the scrolling lags. Sometimes the phones crashes. This NEVER happened with my Sony.
The sound only comes out of one speaker at the bottom of the phone. The Sony Z3 had speakers on both ends and it gave that surround sound feel.
Now I'm stuck with a phone I don't like for the next 18 months because of some idiot who likes "exciting" phones, but seems uninterested in actual functionality and quality.
Not good as i aspected. Battery backup is disaster. Overheating issue. Camera not good enough. No fast charging.
Lovely faize, 19 Jan 2017Hi, I'm using Huawei G8 on Lyca network, when call is connected after hello or quit later I ca... moreCheck your mobile phone reception. This sounds like your phone is having issues with the towers.
Ive owned the G8 since early Dec 2016. Great little phone. I have a few issues with it however. First issue is the ring sound isnt loud enough, specially when the phone is in your back pocket or hand bag. You may hear it ring if you are in a shopping center with lots of noise (good luck with that one, Ive missed lots of calls and texts). I ended up having to download a ringtone that gets the best noise going so I can hear it. The other issue I found is the speakers are on the bottom of the phone. You may not see this as an issue at first (I didnt), but soon you will see this is a mistake by Huawei. The sound becomes muffled, the only way to deal with it was to have the phone upside down in my bag or pocket. I found following the GPS a problem, as I could hardly hear that either. I needed everyone to be quiet in the car and had to turn off the radio and air conditioning so I could hear it (not very convenient when you are trying to cope with a 36C day in Australia). As with nearly all Huawei phones the charging port is at the bottom of he phone, so again when on charge you have to have the phone upside down. Thankfully the phone comes with a automatic rotation, so not too much of an issue. Disappointed like the Mate 7 & 8 no removable battery, that was one of he reasons why I never upgraded to the mate 8, but appears that Huawei are not going to change this. Another disappointment was the screen size only being 5.5" rather than the larger 6", but this I guess is personal preference, so to me the G8 is a disappointment. Now Im getting rid of it and replacing it with the Mate 9. Next time I will stick to the devil I know than the devil I dont. But hey, if you got supersonic hearing, work and live in a quiet environment or have gaffer tape around your kids mouths, no problem! Plus if you dont care about the 6" screens, I would say this is a real winner of the other mobile phones out there. Its fast and responsive, but sometimes does have issue connecting to wifi.
