save money and get any other phones out there - one plus 2 (requires no invitation now), nexus 5x, moto x pure, moto x play, samsung A5, samsung A7, one plus x
Huawei need to make its UI more like Android and less like IOS.....
Great review btw, unlike others (PA)
When i read "No material design" i just jumped straight to screen shots section and looked at them and said " Yeh no wonder there is no material design as it is running ios 9.2" .... damn that is the cleanest OS which is cloning ios nearly as close as 99%. the folder layout, background blur, everything. Shame on huawei and google should ban them next year and search for some new manufacturer for nexus may be HTC as they need some help right now.
What da heck..how can No Lollipop Material design to be found became a disadvantage... Funny...i think the chipset doesnt support for 4k video..like m4 aqua lg g4 beat moto x play..they used same chipset and does not support 4k videos...you cant say such things gsmarena...be carefull with disadvantages..
Why don't they just use the robust SD 805 chips (or 801 if cheaper is the goal)? It's good, and I doubt mid-rangers need all of the 64 bit stuff anyway.
SDKforLumia, 16 Dec 2015Hey GSMArena team, no mention of my queries?
I asked does it have same overheating problem re... moreHello.
1. Yes, you can switch your primary storage to be your SD card and apps will be installed there automatically. After switching the storage you will be granted the ability to move apps to the SD card as well. Note that switching to a Class 8 card made the G8 experience a noticeable lag.
2. The chipset indeed heats the phone a lot when put under pressure and sometimes throttling occurs, though the phone doesn't overheat. But since the G8 is made of metal, it gets really hot sometimes, on the verge of unpleasantly hot description.
Hope these help.
Personal experience with 615: Gets really hot, fails on GPU department...
G6, G7, G8. Every year it seems Huawei devices are becoming more premium as well as expensive. Yet, people still compare it to other Chinese goods that are inferior and security risk.
Hugely disappointed. I was looking to buy this one but omg u guys saved me frm buying this crap fest.
Hey GSMArena team, no mention of my queries?
I asked does it have same overheating problem related to Snapdragon 615?
Also, can we save Apps and Games on SD Card?
You didn't answer any of the 2 clearly, although you guys did mention Call quality, and thanks for that. But my other 2 questions?
