I'm sad that the Mate 7 wont get the update :( It doesnt really need it as it runs awesome on marshmallow, but i would have liked it nonetheless
Ziggy0928, 21 Jan 2017When my P9 can be upgraded to Android 7.0 in the Philippines?I am from the Philippines also. My friend got his EMUI 5.0 but mine is still at 4.1.1
I checked the updates but it says "No Updates"

And this inspite of the fact that when honor7 was launched, huawei/honor had announced that upto 2 years honor7 would be regularly updated.This is the way huawei is treating its customers. And still huawei wants to become no 1 in the world, (I.e by cheating customers)
Wtf... How come nova plus get android nougat so late? Huawei, u are very slow in updating ur devices (except the flagship)!!!
doktor1, 19 Jan 2017What about P9 Lite?P9 lite is in testing, basically kirin 950/650 series will get nougat. So example, honor 5x wont get nougat.
Nawaz Arshad, 19 Jan 2017P9 lite will receive the update as well. Like when?
As a previous owner of a Honor 7 device I would have to warn people, avoid this brand if you want your peace of mind!
Let me elaborate. The phone hardware was very good, with perhaps the best camera on any phone so far (it was overlooked by all the "relevant" websites).
It was the software that really messed up the experience. Still to this day and with all updates it got it could still NOT PROPERLY show notifications. And this is a repeating theme in all Huawei phones.
I cannot for the life of me understand how a phone company, which is all about communication in the end, allow devices on the market that cannot properly notify their owners... And how can people accept that is beyond me...
I am not a hater, I loved my Honor 7, if notifications were working as they were supposed to I would keep this phone for as long as I could.
Huawei was really pushing it last year, but not giving it the Nougat update should really show people what to expect for this company. Too bad they don't care about the user experience and abandon their customers so easily after a year and a half.
