One of my favourite phones. Still working great 2,5yars later. Battery strong as horse, 2 days easy. Using it on daily basis. Just ordered new flipcase as I love it, old one has worn but protected the phone well, not a single scratch. I wish Huawei or HTC have manufactured new 6,8" - 7" device. Bezel less.... Have bought Mate 10 pro and OPO 5t, not impressed at all. 18:9 screen ratio is joke.
I've updated my firmware to Android 6, my P8 MAX functioning even better. I have to do it manually, hence there is no official update for EU.
Anyone knows any rumour about new version of this phone?
I am from Turkey. Huawei Turkey does not sell P8max. So don't support me. So I ask to you: I purchased a Huawei P8max. My brightness mode is "auto". But when i am outside, and on sunny days, i unlock the phone, but can't see the display 4-5 seconds because of sunlight. I think the brightness must increase step by step.But on my device I wait 4-5 seconds . And then I can see the display in a sudden way. For example, I'm am outside and someone is calling me, i open the phone but can't see who is calling me. Waiting 4-5 seconds:( Auto brightness mode is very slow😢. Is the problem device or Android 5? And what is the solution? May i wait Marshmallow update? Or will never change this situation?

I dont enjoy iphone; its restricted..Thanks in advance
Does this phone come with fingerprint sensor? If not then this is really a major drawback. I wanted to upgrade from mate 7 to p8 max but no need since mate 7 has fingerprint sensor.
@Roy Marlin: Mine was auto updated OTA in November 2016. New York City, USA.

Rahul, 04 Nov 2016Can anyone please tell that this phone will work for Reliance JIO SIM in india?Yes it works
cool, 03 Nov 2016it can work well but it is strictly for the Chinese market. it means some apps will never chan... moreWrong - not all P8 Max phones have the Chinese ROM. I bought mine off eBay from a supplier in the USA, and it has the international ROM - English by default. So yes, try to get the model DAV-701L, this is the international, unlocked, English version, and it will work perfectly on the USA networks, and other GSM networks worldwide - I have used mine in the UK, and also in South Africa.
If you have the Chinese ROM, not to worry, there are youtube clips on how to get it back to English International.
