What is Huwaei's skinned version of marshmallow like? I hear it doesn't have an app drawer? Will nova launcher help? Does anyone know the prices for the us? No IR blaster?

This is the specification I got from Lazada
As from what i have browsed recently is it correct that the 4gb ones will only come in the GOLD&BROWN colors? So, with the BLACK&SILVER there are no version with 4gb RAM(?)
Since it comes out tomorrow in China, if I purchased one could I still use it U.S.???
farhad, 07 Dec 2015When you find contacts its number comes very slowHow comes you have this issue with the mate 8 and the mobile is still not yet released ...I think u r taling about the mate7.
Can't wait to have it!!!
Hopefully it will be available in the Philippines on January.
karagoz, 02 Dec 2015For 6" size screen, the resolution should be at least FHD. I also wanted to use SD card in a s... moreIt.s good to see that finally all USA 4g bands are included in this phone.
6.0 inch display is perfect. Ones you used it before, you will notice how uncomfortable 5.7 inch display looks like. I hope next year Huawei will have two versions: 6.0 inch display and 7.0 inch display.

Can't wait for it,Will be my next upgrade,has a G7 at the moment and Loving it.....
Mate 8 is 185g and 7.9mm width, but it isn't a good design for the rear fingerprint reader, every time unlock the screen are some of the limitation because of holding the big while heavy phone. I really don't know why they design the fingerprint reader at the back it is looks same as the LG G4, when the phone place on the table or bed, it is annoying to pick up the phone for unlock, most people will press the fingerprint reader from front or side of the phone to unlock the screen and most people are unfamiliar to the back fingerprint reader, especially such a phablet.
Anyone outside China have to wait until February to get it .
As Huawei will relaunch it in CES for the international market .
Sophea, 30 Nov 2015I used Mate7 but now stopped using it because i don't like the color is worse than samsung now... moreYou don't like the color in the Mate7? If you mean camera then yes its better, but it won't be any LG kind of level, and not Samsung level. Improved and good enough IMO but not top of the top.
