DatUtter, 27 Jun 2017You do not need root to run custom roms, just a custom recovery like TWRP. Google is your friend :)Well, I had experience with older phones and they needed root, now just unlock bootloader and install TWRP/CWM via adb and tadaa

Please be aware that the P8 Lite does not support OTG or MHL and it only has a basic accelerometer without a gyroscope so head turning in VR will be hugely in-accurate.
Best mobile....in my whole life. .i bought it in 2015 november. . Since now it's working great.....we don't need and wait for an official update through our mobile settings...because we can upadate it through firm update software.

My brother has the Huawei Y5 II which runs Lollipop and it never heats, so the 6.0 update is what we go tricked on.
This is an amazing phone for its price, but with the 6.0 android it drains much more battery and heats up a little more often. But i decided to now install a custom rom on it so hope that will be much better :D
Brad93, 22 Jun 2017Good phone. Going strong after almost 2 years...

The focusing of the camera is the only thing that is kinda bad but I love the double press on the volume down key which takes a pic in 1-1,5 sec while screen is off.
Speed - no complaints, anyone can confirm this.
AnonD-422980, 01 Jun 2017I'd like experienced users to reply asap.
Does this phone have heating issues?
How long do... moreGood phone. Going strong after almost 2 years...
- Strong battery life, lasts me 2-3 days.
- Play cpu intensive games no problem, does overheat after playing Dream League Soccer for a while.
-Camera is okay, not the best. Samsung cameras much better.
- Hard plastic design surprisingly strong.
- Better memory compared to Samsung.
Best phone in the world.... I never had any problems with it. I am using Huawei for the past 6 years. My first mobile phone was Huawei Ascend G525... It still works perfectly, Since then I use only Huawei Branded Mobile Phones. I RECOMMEND THIS TO EVERYONE
Have had this phone for few months. The best low budget android phone in the market, about 100€ and its working very well, had no lags, no errors, emui version is 4.03 and os is 6.0 currently. got 3 years warranty and it does everything without problems. Hotspot, wifi, 4g, games, applications, gps, just everything works as well as my old phone, wich was sony's z1 flagship model few years back. (wich died just few months after warranty voided) so, why pay hundreds of bucks more for phone when this one works just as well?
WORST MOBILE PHONE EVER! SUCH WASTE OF MONEY! cca.3 months after purchase its WIFI STOPPED WORKING. It recognises networks but can't connect and keeps saying network access denied. I have put in the correct password, I have done the hard reset to factory settings, tried every possible advice found on net, safe mode, even plugging headphones for FM and other nonsense but nothing helped... hard reset did for an hour or so and then again nothing.. if its a hardware problem and I have to change the motherboard and pay service too I will rather buy some other phone but never again this disapointing Huawei..
