Even with that gigantic 6.8" screen, the 16:9 screen aspect ratio makes it easy to use one-handed because of how wide it is. Now in 2021, a 6.8" phone like the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra with the 20:9 screen aspect ratio really makes it difficult for one-handed use. Not only that, it's not even that wide. A tall screen with a narrow width is not a perfect combination. I definitely do hope to see phones like this Huawei make a real comeback. I don't want a phone with a taller screen, I want a wider screen.
I hope the giant company will make a little bit smaller version of P8 Max with full screen but the same body design, like the new iphone 12 which they copied from the older version of iphone 4 & 5 the S series.

Are there any Huawei P8 Max users in the United Kingdom able to receive automatic updates.
I am in United kingdom and my Huawei P8 Max was imported from China/Asia.
It still has the old EMUI 3.1 version installed but can not receive automatic updates, i am trying to get a newer EMUI version higher than EMUI 3.1 version. I contacted Huawei UK and they stated because it was imported from China something related to its region the handset can not receive updates, but Huawei phones are imported to UK from China to be sold and they all can receive updates on the handsets. Please can anyone help a very distressed Hauwei P8 Max user.

Please can you help.
I am using Huawei P8 Max Model: Dav-701LV
I am in United Kingdom.
Does you know what is the latest up to date O/S: EMUI can be updated for my Huawei P8 Max? At the moment EMUI 3.1 is installed and has Android Version 5.1.1. I have updated the to the most recent firmware available dated from 1st July 2017 but can not receive anymore updates. I love this phone so much that I have bought this Huawei P8 Max because my last Huawei P8 Max was damaged.

I bought the International version of this P8MAX (DAV-701LV) in 2015 - there has NOT BEEN AN UPDATE EVER SINCE RELEASE !!!!! This was my first Huawei phone and will be my last - as can be seen by my username, I support Xiaomi now. Huawei has burnt all bridges to this customer. Does anyone know how to hack an update to this phone ? I'm sitting on the ancient Lollipop 5.1.1
I loved this phone until I lost all google services. Now just a paper weight.
Its one of the few bonafide 16/9 screen.
biggest weaknesses is the age and a GPU that already at released was not high-end worthy..
but the quality hence 2015 model-era, is really good, with that metalbuild and extreme thinformfactor in 6mm and something and huge batteries..
feel like a big thin piece of metal and that 16/9 screen really shines in media.
And the latest update has restored Google services! My lovely Huawei P8 Max is back in service!

I think the screen will be fine and I know there won't be any problems with band support, Google services or customer service. Lost contacts or any data really, is not acceptable with the high quality devices available these days.

A lot of people online had same issues. I tried everything such as reset to factory, or install new ROM. I'm shopping for a new phone now in a hurry. I will consider not to get a Huawei China phone. I just found that all my years of Google Contacts were not updated in Google; I didn't know that I supposed to install Google Contact Sync to get auto sync. I don't need to do this in other Android phone. It is too late for me, since I did a factory reset and lost all stored contacts. I was considering to get newly-released Huawei Honor 8x max or Xiaomi MI Max 3 (6.9 inch phone).
I updated my DAV-703 (international version) from EMUI 4 to EMUI 4.0.3 and now all Google services are blocked. Apparently, the Chinese version got pushed out to the international versions and our devices got clobbered. After checking XDA threads, seems if you root the device and put the previous rom on you're good to go. Really loved this phone but rather useless now... Hoping Huawei pushes a fix out soon.
