They (Android) keep on failing.there is always some glych or teething issue. I keep hearing about wifi issues which worries me as I bought this phone as a back up to my lg g4 that has a "known problem" with is chip. This p8 lite feels good in the hand and so lovely to use, but I fear there is a built in self destruct as with all the other Android phones out there beside Samsung
It pisses me off that you spend good money on these phones and your lucky to get over a year out of them before they become dysfunctional.fingers crossed. Again
I have had my phone for about 8 months now. It worked flawless for a while but coming from a Nexus 5 to this had its problems. The screen on this phone is not as sensitive when typing. Up until recently everything was perfect till all my photos got corrupt on the phone memory. They appeared as black with no thumbnail, my usual backup also got corrupted with this so was left with nothing. I called Huawei who could only say sorry. After reboot phone is okay but i am scared to take photos as the memory card also got corrupted. Both sides. I am now looking for a new phone but feel a bit put off..was thinking 5c.. but maybe not.
I can`t update my p8 lite to marschmallow 6.0 I am using ALE-L21 and still using 5.0.1 Lollipop. Does anyone knows why I can`t update to marschmallow. I`m from Macedonia. Anyone please help!!!

From what I saw, it's a common problem and the "solution" (if you can call that a solution) is to change to default google keyboard, which doesn't have the swype function. I'm really disappointed with this.
Great phone with one flaw - MMS.
MMS fails to retrieve messages, and when a message is stuck the data connection also goes offline. Have also had problems with WiFi failing to connect but working OK after a reboot. Very frustrating, I have returned it under warranty after only 2 months.
Expecting the problem to be fixed.

Hi there, I would like to find out from other P8 lite users, when I receive a whats-app message I do not get a "tone" notification. All notifications is on "on". I know it is settings, just not sure what setting.
For those whose having wifi problems, try to restart your wifi router and make sure you downloaded the "huawei hilink" app. Hope it helps.
Coltim, 16 Aug 2016I bought a p8 lite dual SIM phone in April, great! Then last week (august) cannot connect to W... moreMy Huawei P8 lite (ALE-L21) till now works fine (build number L21C636B170 Indonesia region), no complaint about WiFi and no complaint about keyboard freeze. This build number is latest firmware update in Indonesia region and this is very good compared previous firmware version. For ton of issues/complaints in social media, internet, all smartphones have pros and cons and have issues. Before I use Huawei P8 lite I use Meizu M2 note second, there was issue too with Flyme 5 (it would stuck for the first user Flyme account if second user updated from Flyme 126.96.36.199i to 188.8.131.52G, and Zheng Meizu couldn't help me unlock or delete first user Flyme account and the most weird, he said the Flyme email first user didn't match with his system. In fact, the Flyme 184.108.40.206i could unlock the first Flyme account user and matched with the system, but in 220.127.116.11G, no). Before I used Meizu M2 note, I used iPhone 5S, before I used iPhone 5S, I used Asus Padfone S, I also encountered problem. It was randomly restart if I use firmware Lollipop WW 37, WW 41, WW 43. Before I use Asus Padfone S, I used Xiaomi Redmi 2, it also faced my complaint too, even worse. Xiaomi Redmi 2 lag, open Chrome browsing frequently appeared "not responding, close it. Yes or no". Open camera and closed, frequently "just wait a sec" (loading before before back to normal) and lag all things when it was in charging.
Many complaints, but by the way, my current phone Huawei P8 lite so far is good. Did I face problem with P8 lite? Yes I did, in firmware build number CB150. The problem were typing 2 characters (double typing) and virtual keyboard that sometimes close itself (act like I press back button). In firmware CB170, those double typing and close itself virtual keyboard, were fixed.
For lag, all Android are almost never face no lag. My Huawei P8 lite also sometimes little need time when move from one app to another app. It is normal, 2 GB RAM can't do much things. For no lag (maybe very very less lag) I ever used, was iPhone 5S. This iPhone 5S was very satisfy me much. No lag moving from one app to another app and to another app an etc. But also, iPhone 5S has cons. iPhone won't allow user download for free mp3 files using Safari, UC Browser or other browser. iPhone won't allow user set ringtone be ringing tone downloaded from iTunes Store.
