Wanna get a new phone, should I go for mate8? Please I need your advice

Click on them and disable auto synch. You also could disable Google Play auto update option - Google Play, 3 vertical lines on top left screen side, Settings, Auto-update apps, Do not auto update apps. Also go to phone Settings, Advance settings, Battery manager, Protected apps and allow only third party apps you need, for example Whatsapp, Facebook, Mail in case it is a third party. Apps which are not protected will be put asleep and will not work on background when phone is asleep.
I just got my mate 8 yesterday and I have to say that I'm not very impressed with the battery life. I have been using this morning for about an hour and a half and it's down to 88%. That is with 58.5 minutes SOT and auto brightness and disabling many things. My Blackberry Passport would still be at around 95% from the same usage. I don't play games, I haven't watched videos, this is from downloading 3 apps, a phone call, some text messages and browsing. What is wrong with this thing? It was supposed to be a battery beast!

I don't have problem with it. The battery last for 2 days without any charge. Of course with regular use. But its the best phone compare to Apple and Samsung batteries and qualities.
Pls can someone tell me how effective is the battery life of mate 8. I used one huawei lower than the category of mate 8 and the battery life is so bad that i have to be moving with my charger everywhere i go. i thought it was an error but i confirmed it from someone that uses similar phone with mine. I want to go for mate 8 but i am scared about the battery life. i can use my samsung all day but my huawei cannot stay till 1pm in the day without charging
ashoo, 08 Aug 2016you should buy s6 edge.
why s 6 edge .why not mate 8
I would go for a nexus 6p - got super fast charging and a nice big screen. Good both front and rear camera (at least they got the front camera correct this time). The biggest plus is price at around $399 it wins hands down.
i want a smartphone but i am confused to which one should i pick, i wish for a decent camera (since i am a fan of taking random picture,lessons,ect), a fast charging & last longing battery
and big screen to play games
should i go for a mate 8 or something else from huawei ?? is there a probleme about heating or consommation ?
what about on-screen button, does it cause a problem ?
Recently I have replaced mate8 screen and the fingerprint sensor is not working and even the icon has been disappeared from the setting. Please tell me what to do.
No doubt it's a monster, I bought the 64/4GB last 2 weeks and I'm satisfied. One remark which threatens me of future problem that every time I start an application, the screen dieters for half a second in sudden flash then open the application. Does it happen with anyone?? Is there any significance??
I want to share my view with all of you.
I wanted the best gaming phone with a big screen and a big battery for the gaming and after reading hundreds of opinions and reviews of mate 8,s7 edge,p9 plus,oneplus 3.
I think that in gaming,mate 8 is the best as it doesnot lag like p9 plus(in multitasking),many high end samsung phones like s7 edge,s7(heard many complaints in opinions and in youtube).
So,i have ordered mine and it comes with 3 years warranty,3 months screen replacement and 3 months one to one exchange.
So,I suggest you that if you are looking for a gaming phone than this is for you like me.
Sadly my Nexus 6P was stolen when I was out of the US and I had to buy a phone. I like the Mate8 better. It I slapped the Now Launcher on it and it runs like a Nexus. This is the first phone that I don't have battery anxiety. Not sure why all phones don't have a battery this big - it is the 1 thing people care about. The camera takes great photos - less so in low light. The Mate 8's huge bright screen is a pleasure to watch sports. Speaker is at the bottom - I prefer on the front - but it sounds decent and relatively loud.
