Looks like I finally managed to solve the lack 4K recording capability on this phone.
I installed Open Camera app from play store and under Open Camera app settings enabled Force 4K option.
Now I am able to record 4K videos using my Huawei Mate 8 using the Open Camera app.
Now this phone feels even better than before, as I told before the hardware was clearly capable of recording 4K videos, the phones major shortcoming was it's improperly implemented camera app, Open Camera solved that shortcoming.
7, 13 Feb 2016Then you should trade-in your Huawei and change to SAMSUNG! Guarantee do not have such stupid ... moreHaha, whatever, my Samsung S4 has the exact same problem and it's on the latest possible build of Android available to the S4 (which is v5.0.1) and Whatsapp v2.12.449. Sometimes I will get a notification immediately and other times I open my Whatsapp every few hours or so and see that someone sent me a message like 3 hours ago and I only receive it now when I launch Whatsapp. What is going on? By the way, I don't run any sort of process killer on my phone, only Greenify, which is configured not to hibernate Whatsapp. Anyone has a solution to this problem?
vick, 15 Feb 2016Does it have LED notification light on top??Hi, yes, the Mate 8 has a notification light. This phone has some awesome customization options, check it out... http://phandroid.com/2016/02/02/huawei-mate-8-tips-tricks/
vick, 15 Feb 2016Does it have LED notification light on top??Yes, it does. But with the window case it is invisible when closed.... No opening made for the LED.... Unlike e. g. LG G4...
Oh come on..They wasted such powerful hardware due to improper UI and camera optimisation, hey developers are you guys listening, is there someone out there who can build a camera software to enable 4K recording on this phone, because it's hardware is clearly capable to do so, this phone is just ruined due to its badly optimised software.
Those iPhone users now got a new app called Procam 3 which enables 4K recording capability on 5s and 6, why can't we Android users have something equivalent for our phones.

Im a proud owner of Huawei mate 7. The phone is amazing. It does everything with easy and the battery life is amazing too. To solve your notification problem just go to the app manager and protect the apps you want to keep on running in the background. As for me i left whatsapp, facebook, facebook messenger and email running in the background and blocked the rest. I receive my notifications anytime even if the screen is locked. No issues at all. My only problem is that the mate 7 is a bit slow when searching names on whatsapp compared to other big phones like note 5. Because of this, im thinking of moving on to the mate 8 which has a more powerful processor. However, the mate 8 is not yet here in my country Zimbabwe.
Hi. My mate 8 can't download large file from playstore. The playstore automatically closes when i click install. Please help me to fix this.
