jamalelhouni, 06 Mar 2017what about the battery life?No noticable difference in battery life on my device.
It's the EMUI 5 that I'm not too crazy about. I like the older 4.1 better. Before (4.1), I could see the running apps on status bar from lock screen. Now, that's gone.

After the 7.0 update, my battery is draining like crazy...normally I charge in morning and battery lasts the whole day. After 7.0 update. I need to charge in mornings and night as well.
Seems like it was not worth it to update, i don' like the EMUI 5.0 either and I hate charging my phone twice a day. Any suggestions?

It's very inconvenient
I have mate 8 hopefully we get updated in March
Huawei is treating Africa with disdain, just like all the other phone manufacturers. When updates are released, is always the African users who get updates last. Really? Africa is one of your largest markets and yet we are looked down on. Wake up, Huawei. I can't wait for Nokia. They treated the region with a little more respect. I hope they continue
Hey guys i stay in the gulf and i got the update... It is smooth now... I feared the changes before the update... But not now.... the only catch is the user interface isnt that appealing... Eg.. the dialing pad look.. now the notification icons is not scrollable from left to right.. its just merged to one... But this is as thin strip now instead of three rows... Which i feel was handy for smaller palm people.
taklaz, 21 Feb 2017did you get it via hisuite or OTA?
i bought my mate 8 from oman but now i live in europe.
h... moreYesterday morning I tried through the hisuit I could not find the update. Then afternoon I tried through OTA then I find it.
Maybe your turn will come soon. Really excellent job from Huawei. Smoother than before.
