I would only recommend this phone for those who will never afford to spend more on the better Samsung, HTC or Apple phones because:
Processor is poor. Struggles with use of bigger apps like Snapchat, or anything that requires a lot of processing.
3GB RAM is fine, although I keep getting messages that there is little memory left, as it may be good to handle much information at once. (Ex: Keyboard hidden cause "memory is less than 5%")
Camera is ok, uses light well and can handle certain light enviroments quite well. Pictures may sometimes come unclear, and appear too bright.
To be a smartphone, the P8 is slow and performing worse than the bigger flagships out there, which creates a ton of frustrating moments trying to: open apps, write messages using keyboard, use apps 'cause lag occurs often.
The P9 is out, but remains to see if it's good on long term. In meanwhile I only recommend this phone if it is cheaper, and if you're can't save up for a better one.
Can anyone who has this phone please tell me about the phone? Like have you had any problems with it?

Demo, 26 May 2016I'm stuck between the Samsung a5(2016) and huawei p8,which one should I get?﻿The choice should be clearly on P8 side. P8 is better in almost every aspect... And there probably is not any spec, that in P8 is worse than in A5.
