HUAWEI P8max
6.8" 4G Smartphone (oh, yes!)
FHD LTPS Capacitive 1920x1080
Android 5.1(Lollipop) +Emotion UI 3.1
64-bit Octa-core 2GHz CPU
Dual SIM
3GB RAM
32GB ROM
8MP and 13.0MP cameras
Rad for us guys with big fat fingers, plus jumbo screen means no glasses needed. Tons of memory + SD slot, plenty of oomph, big battery. The best thing is, if you break it you just get another at this price -- something one can't do often with poncy poser phones. Can't wait for the beast to arrive:)
Review (from some bloke with small hands:) trustedreviews.com/hua…iew

Really need to point out that this only does 2 out of 3 UK 4G bands (does not do 800MHz - I think that may be the only one that o2 bought). Even if you are on EE, who use all three, this may mean that the mast you need to use is not able to provide you with 4G, where it would if you had all 3 bands.

Non-removable Li-Po 4360 mAh battery

Dual sim: with No micro sdcard slot

OR 1 sim and Microsd slot

Yay my phone
Remember to add that it's DUAL SIM. You can put second SIM instead of memory card.

Making my Z Ultra look small is no easy feat.
That's like holding a tablet to your ear! Way too big for me 5.5 inches is the biggest I'll go up to! (if you think I'm talking about anything other than a phone; you have a dirty mind)
6.8 inch ,my god it should be for sale in Ann summers
Why would anyone hold a big phone to their ears? Thezza blutoof, or mic headset for calls. Massive screen is for looking at.

Did you get charged any duty or VAT?

I bought it for a bit more but with vat/duties already paid and with full UK warranty + 2 days delivery.
Wouldn't risk buying from China like that tbh
This is too big for a phone. Ridiculous.

No. It is to big for YOU. For some people this would be an ideal size. Just like a 4 inch screen is ideal for others.

I had the first Note when that came out. That had a 5.3 inch screen and was seen as stupidly big. Now when LG bring out the G5 with a 5.3" screen people applaud them for bring out a "more phone sized phone". Heat from me.

True...but that was just because at the time people thought it looked stupid rather than it really being physically too big to be a phone.

This is physically too big to be carried around as a phone for most people.

Heat for the price though.
All my friends with iPhones use to take the Micky out of me at first with my 4.7" HTC HD2 and them my Galaxy S3 and S5 (just over 5").

Now they say they would never go back to a 4 or 4.5" phone.

5.7" with no bezel would be the biggest I'd go though as it would not fit in my jeans. I would not care what I looked like using it as a phone as long as it fits in my jeans as not the sort of person who cares about what people think of me. How often do you use it as a phone anyway and benefit from that extra screen/battery size.
Had to return this as, and never thought id say it, but it was too big. They sent me the gold one in error too which made it look like a gold bar. I paid £350 couple of months ago and it came from china via spain with no duty. So this is hot for me as it is a great phone and at this price amazing value if you can handle it.

​Really, an ideal size hey? Maybe for a mutant or King Kong.

Good luck using it. There comes a point where people cease to look cool and just look a prize plum when it comes to phones.

Dom Jolly indeed.
I've had the P8 for almost a year now, great phone, design & build and would highly recommend over the other top brands for price and value for money.
The only thing with Huawei is that they don't update the software much, so if you after the latest android update all the time don't get this.
I have a international version its a great bit of kit paid £350. I was told import can only be used on some UK bands can anybody confirm this? Also may not have Google play store installed. Also would there be import tax?

​I bought the original galaxy tab 7inch tablet phone when it came out. Before that I had the HTC Advantage. I would have bought the Z ultra except it didn't have flash. I am now a Note user since the first one.
I also had a the Samsung Tab 7in tablet phone, then the Samsung Mega 6.3", now use the SU6 at 5.5", think 5.5" is a good size. ithink 7" is too small for a tablet think 9" is perfect, although 8" in the 4:3 shape is pretty good, not so keen on 8" 16:10.

Comes with a free back pack because it's too big for a case
6.8 inch! That's bigger than my D.....DOOGEE X5 PRO

Hello.. is it me your looking for..

HEAT on the deal, great price, good spec and brilliant screen..
It's not an appropriate gift for a man approaching fifty, it's too big!
4G: LTE FDD 1800/2100/2600MHz (Bands:B7, B3, B1)
....boo,no giffgaff then!
6.8" seems slightly large for a phone, so this won't be for everyone.

Great price though. Voted hot.
Damn! I would love to get this, if I hadn't bought a new phone recently I would go for it straight away! Hot!
should be some good prices on P8 models in the next couple of week. Huawei are launching their new P9/P9 Lite/P9 Max phones on April 6th. It's alleged that the P9 Max will 'only' be 6.2-inch this time.
That's surely a tablet size!!!!!!

Id buy this instead of a tablet. Does everything you need and easily portable
Interesting device, although a little too unweildy for me - I am a fan of large phones, but a Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 was the largest I ever used in anger and even that was a little too large.

An useful website for price comparison of Chinese shops is kimovil:

kimovil.com/en/…2gb

The cheapest price currently is £207.84 from Aliexpress.
HOW BIG?!? oO
good way to make use of the three all you can eat data if you want to stream games and video lots. was looking to buy this last week and the cheapest I could find was £330
Good deal. I'm only looking for a phone 6" and up. I wish more flagships were larger.

​This is hilarious. oO
Whatever the iPhone 3gs size is is perfect for a phone, everything can be done one handed. My tablet is 7" lol....
Be careful with this and the p8 lite, they both use HiSilicon chipset, and there are no custom ROMs for this yet, so your stuck with they're skin, which is pants if you're used to stock Android, you can always put on another skin ie nova, but this will drain your battery.
