The battery of this phone is a monster. It lasted for a day and half without recharging. You can specify which apps can access the net. It is a very large phone and it's performance is great so far.

abo khairy, 29 Feb 2016hi my friend... i want to buy it but does it recieving all notifications normally of all apps ... moreHi Mate, I haven't come across any issues with Mate 8 other than a bug in camera (Its hardware related and Huawei replaced the camera assembly and now it works great). The notification issue is the consequence of the power saving settings, i believe. Please find this article which i found useful. http://www.androidheadlines.com/2016/01/how-to-fix-missing-notifications-on-huawei-phones.html . Honestly, i don't want all those notifications screaming out from my phone which i find annoying. But according to the above article there is a way to allow them. Anyways, I would recommend you to confidently proceed with the purchase for that sheer power packed performance, that amazing build quality inside and outside and that gorgeous scree, an excellent camera & not the least the BEAST BATTERY. You wont be disappointed. ( Keeps yourself boosted by running benchmark tests and see your Mate 8 beats other phones Lol) Cheers Rahul
The battery life test was done on the latest firmware udate, or on the stock firmware ? Because with the latest formare the battery life is increasing a lot.
