now i am facing a new problem. my mobile is charging only when it is off. problem after problem.
I bought Mate 8 recently as an emergency replacement for my LG G3, with not much expectation except for the longer battery life (already know it have 4000mah battery) considering the price is quite cheap here in Malaysia- at that time I didn't know the phone released earlier in 2016, one half of a year ago but has been heavily discounted.
My, how this phone exceeded my expectation. Not only the battery last longer than I expected with around 5 hours screen on time (with 2-3 hours spent on playing Mobile Legend), I can take it off the charger in the morning and still have around 40-50% left when I go home at night after some moderate to heavy usage.
It also put similarly priced phone to shame in term of performance. Launching and switching between apps are really quick, at least for every core apps such as phone dialer and messages while heavier app such as camera will take a few seconds but once it load, switching between camera and other app is fast. Oh, it can handle popular mobile games smoothly too. My recent favorite Mobile Legend doesn't encounter any noticeable graphics slowdown issue even after playing for more than 2 hours.
Overall if you're in the market for USD300 (or equivalent) budget phone, this is the one to get. But depends on where you live, it may be hard to find now.
It turned out my battery was defective. When i contacted Huawei service center they said battery can't be replace. Whole panel needs to be replace and for that they asked 90 dollars. What the f***.
Anyway, i got it replaced with a local repair shop in 10 dollars.
Now i am thinking to replace my phone with OnePlus 3T. Wad u say?
My Mobile's battery is giving me 3 hrs of screen on time max, and that after installing greenify. before greenify it was giving just 1.5hrs.

Mate 8 is the best phone I ever had and I had 8 in the last 5 years. I had iPhone 4s first, LG G2 (2 different ones), LG G4, Galaxy S5, Huawei Mate 7 and Mate S. For the last year or so I have Mate 8. Yes, it's getting a little boring and I tought about buying S8+ just for change, but after few minutes i asked myself, "Why"???
I cannot find a major downside of owning Mate 8. Looks very good, I get lots of questions about it and it is old already. Metal build is great because I use all of my phones without case and I have dropped it at least 15-20 times. I has lots of damage, but it works perfect and the screen survived everything. So, I know it is very durable y friend uses 6s Plus for similar period of time, also without case, and his phone has worn out on the sides, which is not the case with Mate 8.
Also, performance is smooth. There is no lag, never, nothing. It is fast, responsive, never " freezes", never slows down. Of course, you need to optimize it, turn off all the unnecessary stuff that you don't use etc.
Screen is big (6 inch, very sharp, colors are accurate and I can't see the point of putting QHD on 6" diagonal. Ok, VR is a real reason, but in this stage of development this techonolg is still a gimmick. It's fun for a few days, but later you get bored using VR ser on your head. So, I believe that Huawei made a smart decision sticking with Full HD.
Battery life on this phone is amazing. I work on TV station and I am a power user. My screen is never dark because I use screen brightness at 70% + all the time.
Whatever I do, I simply cant believe how good is the battery. My friend who is not a power user charges it once in 3 days.
Camera is good, very good for tips, tourism, selfies, but is not great. Camera is like VW Passat. Good, has everything, drives good, looks good but is not good as (let's say) Mercdes CLS.
At the end, this phone is top, top class. Only needs waterprofing which is a very smart addition.
Can anyone tell me.. that we have battery problem after nougat.. that drain more power
my phone got hang up after upgrading to android 7.0..it happened for 8 times n more when i start to play game.. pliss take action.. with this new software upgrading.. i love my huawei mate8..
Salem Ruinia , 24 Jun 2017Huawei mate 8 is really a great mobile. Everything is perfect. Especially the sound & b... morei agree with most of the points u mentioned but only flaw i find in this phone after 1 year of usage is sound.. without earphones loud speaker is not loud enough.. although with earphones this deficiency can be masked. everything else is good.. battery timing is superb. phone's performance is surprisingly improved after its update to nougat.. after all one cannot be disappointed after buying this phone.. my only concern is that it may not be updated to android O.. :(
Anonymous, 22 Jun 2017Any 3rd party app were I can get more options for the apps available in Multi window?I've searched alot but was not lucky to find any but you can use developer options and activate the last item - Force activities to resizable ;)
Huawei mate 8 is really a great mobile. Everything is perfect. Especially the sound & battery. The phone looks small to its 6" screen . WiFi coverage is quite good. Since my early owning of a mobile phone in 1998 I feel as if this is the first time to possess such a device. Good luck Huawei yo
