Huawei P8lite review: Style on a budget

03 August, 2015
Huawei has long had a spot on the smartphone map, devices like the P8 and Mate 7 trying really hard to break new ground in the premium segment. Refined exterior and competitive specs but not quite competitive price points, Huawei wants to be a brand driven by quality, not discounts.

Hi, im using p8lite from end of 2015 until now. Lot of problem here, such as wifi/hotspot cannot connect. Network connection sometimes have problem with it no network, the performance of this phone is good anyway. And sometims have lag,apps issues u have to factory format and it will be like new.But nowadays better take a new generation of smartphone more better. Oh, i change to other phone already.

I have had this phone for almost 3 years (in November gets 3 years). I've recently upgraded to Android 6.0, and although everything works ok, I miss the option to set a fake password and hide messages, applications, calls from anyone. So you would give them your "public" password and they would've never invaded your privacy. It's a middle ranged phone, don't expect high quality, but I never had problems with it. I also play lots of games. It gets hot, and sometimes it doesn't work very smooth, but for less than 200 euros, it is the best phone I could have. The selfie camera in the front has a wide angle and this is very cool. I love this phone.

I have had my P8Lite for two years and prefer it over my two previous phones. However, 2GB Ram is not sufficient. If you have any app running and then want to use the keyboard, eg to send a txt, the keyboard keeps being hidden due to lack of memory. Quite frustrating. Hence I am in the process of choosing a new phone and won't go for a Lite version again. Also, 16Gb is insufficient, even with a 16Gb Sd card as well.

Yes all very jolly till something goes wrong. My Hauwei P8lite has now decided that bluetooth and WiFi are just too hard and won't connect anymore. A truly boring feature. I've rebooted twice according to best available advice on the web but no joy. I did like the logic of Hauwei and the simplicity of use. Can't wait till the China developers bring out the snap on android -maybe platforms will be more stable when they're not trying to be accessed by a horde of apps I neither need nor want.
