I purchased my Mate 8 in March 2017. Although there was a newer model, I was looking for the FM Radio as a way to save data vs TuneIn Radio or other online options. No regrets at all. It has upgraded to Android 7. Everything exceeded my expectations. It has an excellent battery, great screen resolution, fast processor and all necessary 3G and 4G bands I need when traveling.
Excellent, I have already 8 Months with this phone, I bought it for emergency (My old phone died), and this one, exceded my expectations, today is not the newest, the Mate 9 was released time ago, but it works really fine, amazing 4000mA Battery

I have recently purchased one. It is really awesome, and I used to enjoy. Recently, I received and installed updates from HUAWEI, thus I now have android version 7.0 (Nougat).
Unfortunately, charging issues have now risen since then. Can it be caused by the Upgrade? And what should I do without destroying my warranty, to solve this?
Please can you turn off the shutter sound when taking pictures, or you will have to root the phone first. I need the answers to help me make a choice of buying a new phone
I have a NXT-L29 and what I found very dissappointing is the lack of Chromecast support for screen cast.
the mirror share option is not compatible with Chromecast . Must be compatible with some specific hardware nobody has in Europe

Hello, I have finally got the android 7.0 nougat update OTA after a very long wait, my phone is mate 8 NXT-L29 64GB version, and also I am in Libya. I haven't experienced any bug till now so everything is very smooth, also I haven't experienced any battery problems. So the update made my mate 8 just like the mate 9 with the new EMUI 5.0 . So after all I'm very happy with new the update.
I have had my G8 for 16 months in December 2016 it kept saying it was
overheating it was sent back under warranty.
I got it back in January it is not the same and I am worried what to do the 24 month warranty period is nearly over.
Plz guys , i heared about volte features in mate 8 , could anyone tell me what is it coz i dont know, thx
I was using this phone exactly one year and I had upgraded from EMUI 4.1 to EMUI 5.0. After upgraded, my phone was hang and cannot turn off the phone only show the "Huawei Logo". When I went to service centre, they said PCBA / Motherboard was death. Gonna charge thousand plus if I wanna to repair it because I just out of warranty. I really disappointed with this phone. I had been bought or using others phone more thant a year but NO problem. I suggest NEVER to buy this phone.
I am using mate 8 since last year. its amazing no issues at all. never stucks.
