Couple days in the use of this phone. So far I really like it. But this review is wrong about this phone having NFC! IT DOES NOT SUPPORT NFC! But it does have this awesome vioce wake up setting. You can use the factory command words, or you can train it to use words of your choice. And when you miss place your phone somewhere, like your house for instance, you can yell out the command words and ask where are you. And the phone will light up, flashlight blinks and plays a little tune and says I'm here until you pick up the phone. And for you critics, it really does work awesomely. I put it under my bathroom sink, shut the bathroom door, went into my bedroom and shut that door and stood by my bed and yelled out, hey Jarvis.. where are you.. (and yes I did name my command after iron mans ai) and what do you know I her a tune and a voice saying " Im here". Mind blown at how well it works. And you can also say ( in my case) "hey jarvis.. call ( input contact name ) and it will call that person. No pressing any buttons first. I really wanted the NFC function when I got this phone, but that makes up for it.
good camera... get pretty ugly at low light exposure (too much tweak at contrast). pro mode after update it to 6.0 (cool). got some conflict with apps that try to use camera (compatibility issues)
no lag till now, sweet multitasking. got annoyed with warning that certain app use much energy / run at background, little setting with notification, shortcut, and navigation bar (kinda lame and boring)
sudden rise in temperature while i left charging it(i mean reeeal hot), get warm pretty fast while play games, mehh with battery life. thanks with metal body so the temperature drops rapidly
lost hope with speaker, stereo inside but mono outside is still a thing i guess. sounded weak even though at maximum volume. got this little vibration while listening to music (kinda annoying)
really sweet simple but elegant looking, kinda loving it.
10 hours wait (standby) 3 hours/4 hours 33 minutes screen on mode. Dont buy this phone..cool like iPhone but; poor battery life
I have the P8 lite the only thing is my phone gets hot at the back and thebattery life is not good at all...
This is one of the smartphones ever, except the heating issue. When the cores get active you can feel it getting really warm. The camera takes awesome photos, the phone is really fast and it is easily accessible.
The crappiest camera ever, the front camera takes better pictures than the supposing 13mp back camera. Unfortunately my Sony Xperia M4 had a Network error after the system update so I had limited options to choose from(on contract). This phone takes the ugliest photos. Everything looks like a matt painting not even a 3mp camera take such bad pictures.
P8 is awesome phone, even p9 plus is also good, now I am planning to buy Mate9, superb features, till now notavailable in Oman, Waiting.... Huawei is better than others.....

Don't do the same bad desition.
The screen is very delicate! I have changed it two times (very expensive), even using a glass protection.
The volume button; work very bad. Only reduce de volume (I can increase volume by software).
The SO does not work properly (Android it is intervenited by Huawei)
Don't buy this crappy cellphone!
