This is official answer from huawei support for United Kingdom about Nougat update 22.04.2017
The update release for P9 Lite devices has already started, but it is being released in batches. Therefore, we kindly ask you to wait a bit more.
In the meantime, check the HiCare app from time to time. You can also clear the cache for it in Settings > Apps > HiCare > Clear cache, then restart the device and try again. As mentioned before, make sure you have Auto-check for updates and Auto-Download via Wi-Fi options enabled, in Settings > Update > Menu > Update settings.
Good to update on 7.0 from day one marshmallow have lots and lots of bug's like Homescreen brightness is low compared to apps no apps running background when u clear all lags on apps poor battery performance i wonder why Huawei launched p9 lite if they don't have stable OS

Don't update to 7.0 if you: need bluetooth, want to change ringtone, want default calculator and clock/alarm app. But battery lasts longer and it works better which is nice...

AnonD-662916, 19 Apr 2017Im from asia PAKISTAN and i've got the update on my p9lite (2GB version). What should i do? I ... moreNothing of the kind is important like to reset the mobile after updating. I also live in Pakistan and i have the same variant as of you. I have updated my phone there's no such problem. But you should uninstall every excessive app like FB twitter or anything​ which you have downloaded yourself before update Bcoz some people had problems using apps after update. That's why after update reinstall them.
Hope you got the right thing from me.

AnonD-659959, 20 Apr 2017I'm confused between p8 lite 2017 and p9 lite, which one is better ?
I wanna buy this phon... moreP8 lite 2017 only because it has built in Nougat and EMUI 5. All other is almost same, maybe even P8 2017 Lite has slightly better performances.
Unless, your carrier supports LTE Cat 6, which would give you higher speed with P9 Lite.
Anyway, read reviews, watch YouTube and compare these phones would give you your answer better than me.
Hope this helps you.

How to check if it's fake. First thing which comes to my mind is going to take password for unlocking bootloader. You don't need to unlock boatloader, but fill the fields where Huawei asks for your phone ID, product ID, IMEI etc. If it gives you password, then the phone should be all fine.
Or simple call Huawei.
Me and my husband both using P9 lite..less than 1 month. Only today i've found out that my husband's phone dont have the eye comfort function..and hopefully there is nothing more..
How to check either both of our p9s is not fake..
