After 3 months I use Huawei P8lite, here are my comments and experiences:
+ Good design, feels like premium, the box is also good
+ Upgradeable to Android Marshmallow, support double tap to wake up
+ Dual standby SIM card, the first SIM only supports 4G LTE
+ Performance is good (with notes: no many apps running in background)
- Battery capacity is not good, can't last long
- Charging time is to long. I notice today, start charging on 13:09 (21%), on 21:58 is still 87%. Insane, 13:00 to 21:00 has exceed more than 8 hours not 100%
- Has defect problem WiFi and Bluetooth not function. Maybe not all users, but many users experienced this malfunction syndrome. Can't be fixed by installing firmware, flashing, factory reset, wipe partition in recovery mode. The only is go to Huawei Service Center. My case was go to Huawei Service Center and my phone diagnosed that the phone was unlocked, consequently couldn't claim warranty. If I persist to make my phone got service, the cost was insane too, a half of new P8lite price for change WiFi IC and motherboard
AnonD-607384, 07 Nov 2016Don't buy it... I bought one and after less than a year the Wifi, Bluethooth, GPS and radio st... moreYes, my phone was also stop working connect to WiFi and Bluetooth. Defect several products.
So far so good. I'm pleasantly surprised with the phone. Considering that is cheap it gives a lot for it's price. Cameras is very good with a lot of options, gives a good pictures in daylight as it gives in night time. I'm surprised with camera quality. It have a very good build design, feels premium and expensive, speaker is loud and clear... Mine runs on Android Marshmallow and its so smooth, almost like stock aos, no lags at all. So far I don't have any problems, runs the best for it's price.
Don't buy it... I bought one and after less than a year the Wifi, Bluethooth, GPS and radio stopped working. They just simply greyed out and don't turn on. I couldn't even get technical assistance from Huawei because this model never came to my country. Don't waste your money on Huawei.

Pieter , 04 Nov 2016Hi Must I Stay away Of Huawei Please Tell me to Help me Why the reason of p8 lit heat up at using fne mny other app or net??
I had read some comments in XDA developers, someone said the model of Huawei P8lite for N15/N15A type would have a risk that the phone will get WiFi not connected and Bluetooth not connected problem. The model N16 was also the same but rare.
I had experienced this problem, WiFi and Bluetooth issue. Visited once to Huawei Service Center, my phone was diagnosed no
Sri_lankanguy, 03 Nov 2016I also have the same issue on connecting wifi...Me too. This is the common problem comes from this phone. To fix it, the phone should be brought to Huawei Service Center. They would change the mainboard.
I visited Huawei Service Center yesterday, unlucky, my phone was detected unlock in their system, so I couldn't make change mainboard for free. The cost of this repairment is a half of new price of this phone. I cancelled the repairment, couldn't pay for too much expensive. With the cost of repairment, I would better buy new phone.

Today, have just experience it today. When my Huawei P8lite hang (screen black), it just shows blink notification LED, I did force restart by press and hold power on/off for more than 10 seconds. The phone restarted, but I found WiFi issue now, like the others said, WiFi connection issue, couldn't turn on, it just grey color and the Bluetooth was also the same.
