i had mate7 before and the battery is a beast. 6+ of screen time is a killer. i hardly kill it a day. once i got home around 7pm its still have around half of the battery, but im disapointed about the camera hope mate8 is good. i read and watch some review and majority says its a decent shooter. .well see.
I am happy owner of Mate 8. Exxcelent phone for me - long battery lify, good screen, good CPU power, camera is just ok.
Mostafa Oraby, 20 Feb 2016Battery life of the mate 8 is amazing really, much better than note 5
And screen size of 6"... moreThank you Mostafa
Did you find any problems till now in the mate 8?
Tifa80, 19 Feb 2016I mean the strength or avdantage compared to itBattery life of the mate 8 is amazing really, much better than note 5
And screen size of 6" in almost the same body size of the note5 with 5. 7" screen.
Both are running smooth and fast but the mate8 is faster.
Mostafa Oraby, 19 Feb 2016Hi, What do you mean by edge ? If you mean thickness, both are almost identicalI mean the strength or avdantage compared to it
AnonD-503819, 18 Feb 2016Hi Mostafa,
What is the edge of mate 8 compared to note 5?
What do you mean by edge ?
If you mean thickness, both are almost identical
note 5 user, 18 Feb 2016which one you found better, right now i am using note 5 duos, how you found mate 8 I switched mainly to the mate 8 because of thd battery life and the larger screen size with minimal body increase, honestly i dont feel any difference when the phone is in my pocket compared to the note5,
I have to say also that samsung touch wiz is better than huawei EMUI but still i get the functionality i need from it except the vibration issue i mentioned earlier. Also the main camera on the not 5 is better, but i think mate8 camera will be fixed with a software update, it's a sony sensor after all.
This is an excellent phone but but but ................
The camera is nothing compared to samsung's cameras.
I had to customize the entire phone from launcher in this case using the nova launcher using my own phone software.
The phone is the chinese version and the UI is not very nice my opinion.
Solution for the camera is to install software from google play store.
Installing the google launcher is very tricky and needs some strange workaround to be found on youtube it be same as installing on a xiaomi phone.
Otherwise very snappy phone super fast .
At times the wifi can be fast but very slow going down to kb even bytes.
Again I install a wifi manager from google play store which seemed to have improved this.
Still if you need a good camera and not very technical and don't like all this work arounds stick to known brands in this case nexus p6 does a lot more for you !
marq, 10 Feb 2016Pedometers and Call recorders do not work on this Mate8, but works on Mate 7. I upgraded becau... moreI am disappointed too.
Call recording is an important feature. I Huawei do not solve this immediately, their device will not be recommended by users,
I am thinking of buying one of these 3 phones, what do you think?
Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Dual
Huawei mate 8
Samsung Galaxy Note5 Duos
Thanks a lot to your support
