These any good? How about android update?


Really nice handset. Very fast. Feels like a premium handset, well built. Multi task etc runs smoothly. Great battery life-I get nearly 2 days - medium user. Good screen. Also a UK product - 24 months warranty
Camera is 6 / 10.
Battery 7.5/ 10

Specs at GSM Arena.

Summary: 5.2 in. 1080x1920 display; 12 MP camera; 3 GB RAM, 3000 mAh battery. Android 7.0. 16 GB storage. microSD card slot.

The same price on PAYG @ Carphonewarehouse unlocked incl.£10 top-up as part of their Black Tag deals, available in 3 colours +£5 TCB/Quidco cashback.

Looking for a phone to give as a Xmas present. This would suffice but a 16 gig rom really puts me off.
I think the redmi 4 is the best at this price point but I missed out on its low price on Monday via gearbest

I had the p10 lite for £180 off Argos and 18 topcashback so this ain't that good

I think it comes with Android 7. As its a budget phone I'd expect an upgrate to Oreo, something like summer 2018 but that will be your lot.

As its not a carrier phone, updates will be much quicker.

Pretty much the same as the P9 lite.
Has everything you need bar gyroscope iirc.
(Using P9 lite to type this).

It's fast, handles everything I put at it, shite for Strava as some bug somewhere stops the GPS/Strava. Old version did it too.
P9 lite is now at the same OS as P8 lite 2017.
Android pay/finger print sign in works too.


It is based around Android 7/EMUI5.

16Gb seems fine, but then everything like pics, video and whichever apps allow it, seemlessley go to the SD card o have in it.

I hear the p8 lite's rear scratches a lot. But if like me you're a user and not a show-er, this'll not be a problem.

So if my experience of the similar P9 lite it'll be a nice phone

(HuaWei have some odd marketing model techniques)

Was going to have a look at the p9 lite later as an alternative to the iPod touch for my son for Christmas. He doesn't need a sim card and will just use it for games.

Would this be as good? Anyone know how good the iPod touch is compared to a budget android phone?

I tried and they decline my credit check because I move recently...

Is the P8 lite the one that doesn't have the oleophobic coating so you basically have to use a screen protector?

Yes, comes with a screen protector fitted out the box.

OS based on Android 7 with their own overlay as already mentioned. It will be getting Oreo.


*re; other queries

Great mob for the money. The wife and I both have one and the 16gb isn't an issue for either of us. I have a microSD card in it, the missus doesn't.

Don't know about the back scratching easy its in a protective case, bit of moot point that one, as that'll be the case for the majority I would imagine.

Would I be happy to receive this as a gift/present? Yes, without question.

too late.
