Show us your proof. Dont just whining there with the purpose of damaging chinese phone brand. I have alot of friends in south east asia using it, not much complains so far.
if chinese phones stop functioning after, i suggest it should have the label use before date or best before
From the various comments I do not understand that many said that chinese phone will die after one year. Do you mean that after one year it will stop functioning? I own a Huawei G6 and used for MORE than a year and is working fine and I LOVE VERY MUCH
Hi! So I bought this phone and want to share my experience with it for the past couple of weeks. I hate people defending a brand, just because they own their product and can't admit any faults that it has. I'll try to be objective.
It's my first flagship phone and coming from low and mid-range phones I'm very pleased with the overall experience. The phone is fast, handles multitasking great and it feels like a premium device in the hand. The pros of the phone for me are:
1. Fast CPU
2. Great multitasking and single-hand mode
3. Front camera is great and takes awesome selfies and videos
4. Crisp and bright display (in direct sunlight outside it is perfectly visible)
5. Fast and easy to reach fingerprint scanner
6. Great battery life (mine lasts 2-3 days)
7. Premium look and feel and it's quite small for a phone with a 5.2 inch display, which makes it fit well in my pockets.
On the other hand the phone has a few things that bug me and I'd consider them as cons
1. The camera is good, but lacks OIS and 4k video.
2. The UI is heavily modified and looks nothing like Android (I had to install some additional software to make it look like stock Marshmellow)
3. No fast charging ( it takes around 2-2.5h to charge)
4. The phone is really slippery, because it's metal and so thin (that's just my personal issue with it)
6. GPU power is lacking compared to other flagships like S7 and LG G5, but still it handles all games without a hitch.
Overall I like the phone very much and being cheaper than the rest of the major flagships makes it a good choice. But as I mentioned above, it has some faults and it all depends on what kind of user you are. If you like taking still photos and want a fast device with a really good battery life, then the phone is for you. But if you want a handheld gaming device and a pocket 4k camcoder, it might not be the device for you. I personally don't game on my phone except for some UNO and its gaming capabilities are enough for me. Also I don't really care about 4k video, so the lack of that option is also irrelevant to me. Oh, and one last thing. I see that some people are worried that the phone might die or something, cause it's Chinese. Well... it really feels like a solid device and it also comes with a 3 year warranty and a 3 month free phone change if you drop and break it, so I don't think that build quality is an issue, otherwise Huawei wouldn't include such warranty.
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2016it's really joking. who told you huawei phone will break down in 1 year? have you ever use hua... moreYes it true,huawei sure are good among chinese brand,winnig award from chinese country,but ir for chinese country only,not for international,
ohh and for more i love to collect phone ,so i test alot of phone from every brand,and chinese brand are the low,for huawei,i test p8 max,p8 and p8lite,and you know what,p8lite software problem and die after 6 month,and p8 and p8 max,die after 1 years after facing same problem

E.S.R, 20 Jul 2016I really are dont understand my statement,huawei sure are rising ,because it sell high spec ph... moreit's really joking. who told you huawei phone will break down in 1 year? have you ever use huawei phone by yourself? read through users comments here in gsmarena.
tell you another fact. in this year, Mar. 2016, huawei has been awarded the highest prize for its product quality, "China Quality Prize". it's the highest government official prize and huawei is the only one winner.
you should know other chinese phone brands like xiaomi, lenovo, zte, oppo, vivo, etc. no, none of them got this medal.
open your eyes and learn something, dude.

i am telling you huawei is the 3ed largest smart phone seller and 1st one in China currently which used to be samsung.
2,600,000 p9 and p9 plus has been sold in the first 2 months after its release.
don't tell me they're all stupid.
try a huawei phone and you will take off your color glass.
that's the truth.
Dont look at the company tag .. buy it u won't regret ...I can bet ...!
I was using iphone 6s before but sold it cause cant download stuff like android than.jumped to s7edge loved it for vr but battery wasnt giving me satisfaction.a market person told me to try huwaie p9 I thought its a new brand may be its chinese but bought it after 3days of I am satisfied will stay with this phone ever nice made nice design nice.quality.
Cindy, 19 Jul 2016I'm confused to buy iPhone SEor huawei p9, would u plz advise ??huwaie p9
Cindy, 19 Jul 2016I'm confused to buy iPhone SEor huawei p9, would u plz advise ??I would go for the SE if I were you. Yes se's front camera is 1.2 mp only( but it can compete with many 5mp android) and will not make photos as sharp as huawei p9 but in therms of long time use the se will not start to lag, better built overall, much more resistant screen and better battery life. 4 inch may be small but at least it is a phone you can keep in your pocket ( currently usong lg g4 and the size is annoying).
Cindy, 19 Jul 2016I'm confused to buy iPhone SEor huawei p9, would u plz advise ??Dear Cindy,
Don't buy just a p9.
Buy P9 plus, which have 64 gb, dual sim and 4 or more gb ram for they guy who is really going to use for professional use. It's really a good phone for giving as a gift to the loved one too.. Really a good phone.
