I got this phone about 5 months ago and the experience is better than expected to have switched from Samsung Note4. I needed a bigger screen phone for reading and running real-time monitoring applications and it seems doing it without a flow.
1. Battery life is great and charging very fast until 80% and slows down
2. Battery consumption is also good compared to the screen size and resolution
3. Along with the second sim, slim memory card can be inserted
If one used to Galaxy type control and fingerprint on the bottom of the phone it can take a while to get used to it. The micro charger pin is located on the top of the phone, some people may find it difficult.
for the screen size, its extremely compact phone and after a while it becomes a norm. Biggest advantage is that overall functionality compared with the price huge advantage.
Damn ! ---- looks like the bottom sim tray is micro sim only....
Guess I can use one of those adaptor things hey?

Min-min, 05 Jan 2016how can i activate double tap?
look in settings, on danish language its in "bevægelsesstyring" and the second last feature in that.
the "bevægelsesstyring" is in the smarthelp catogory under "stemmeopvågning" and above "navigatingsline".. the feaures is listed in danish on mine, but you should could find it with these info..
and the double tap feauture works great..
btw under cam-features there is also an sound feature that can be activated on top, and I love that feature so i dont need to touch to take an picture, and connect to talkband b2 to take an picture..
great feature, and same with instructor-mode that also works quite well, with very little lag to other phones.. just an shame that its limited to 720p.. come on Huawei that should be able to firmware it up to FHD..
also cherise the info button in pictures, that really give me an as an camera-rookie the info that i need to get an settings-overview amongst the pictures..
thinking about purchasing one more... i got the silver 64gb version with premium headphones (suppringsinly good headphones from an follower-piece in an mobile) and there where also an great smartcover in brown.,.
but the next one i will purchase to my mom, since she love that size for her needs, but Im familiar that the 32gb version will not have that cover or those premium-headphones but an cheaper version headphones without plasticcase, but is there other factors on the 32GB version i shall have in mind, or is that all the difference,..
what about the 701 versus the 703 version, the 701 should be the international version will that edition support 4g here in Denmark, since the 703 have problems on the LTE band here and same in US where its also comes short on most of the LTE bands, but what about 701 will that tolerate LTE where the DAV703 wont and any other difference between the 701 vs 703..?
Btw the cam in low light is amazing, and the FHD panel used in the p8 max is some of the best i have seen on LCD. simply quite stunningly this panel looks from an 6.8 FHD panel, and cudos to Huawei to priotise an quality fhd panel instead of an mediocre 1.5k or 2k panel in pursuing the specs.... an FHD panel is ideel in the world of Android, and partically when it comes across looking like this.
Jakob 1977 Danmark, 25 Mar 2016for the 4360mah a little over 2 hours where 95% of the charge is going on in the 2 amp rangesome says p8max has no lte please tell
