For a moment I thought this was for the P8 Lite and was about to vote cold as it can be had for less than £100, until I re-read the title to discover this is the full blown P8.

Hot!
Good find, heat!
Very good price, reading the review, I am sorely tempted by this for the price!
I'd still get the SU6 @ £100, better battery

But this is flagship quality, I agree the SU6 is an outstanding phone for the price but for 50 extra sheets you get a phone with a far superior build.
This will get hot!

Thinking about selling my iPhone 6 and getting this, and banking the change. Sure, I'll miss some iPhone-specific features such as Touch ID and 'tap to top' scrolling, but I'll live.
Compared to su6 Better build, better processor, more ram, far better camera 13mp with ois, marshmallow update as well and a more manageable size su6 is just too big even for a 5.5 inch screen size. Also I think this has dual sim/ sd slot too but don't quote me on that. i think for 50 extra well worth it over su6

See previous CPW P8 deal for details on the dual SIM sd card capability, I seem to remember someone got it to work with a physical mod but not standard on the UK version.
Good find. Hot

Plus the P8 has a gyroscope whereas the SU6 doesn't - so you can enjoy those amazing 360 degree videos on Facebook, and games that require a gyro to work.

Sorry yes that too just too many features over the su6 sorry I may miss a few out
wish they had the grey version, only black and white in stock
Wife has one (from the ID Mobile deal) and this is one beautiful phone. HOT!

Me too:)
That's a good deal, can't think of anything better for the money.
Finger print scanner?
The audio quality on this from the speaker is the best I've ever heard on a mobile.

No.

Not being funny but this is worth way more than 50 pounds more than the SU6. It's almost flagship. And a simply beautiful metal body. Very thin as well.
opinion please - this P8 or Xiaomi note 2? dual sim with sd I'd a must for me. Xiaomi is about £35 cheaper but P8 is UK base. what else is important here? thanks
Great phone and really good battery life on the B200 software build.
Does this work with O2 LTE bands? Can't find a definitive answer.

The P8 UK version isn't officially a dual SIM, although (apparently) some have manged to get the SD card to 'act' as second SIM. But even if it works that **** up your extra storage!

Trust me, finger print scanners aren't that good anyway. Touch ID on my iPhone is a bit hit and miss.

The slightest graze on your finger or the slightest bit of moisture or sweat - and it refuses to accept it. I think that annoys me far more than having to enter a PIN.

Is this dual sim... doesn't say on the Carphone Warehouse website.
Hot. I do wish Huawei would be consistent in offering dual band wireless on their high end models. Some have, some don't (like this).
I have had this since a crazy cheap deal on ID network several months ago and it's a great great phone with a brilliant optical image stabilised camera and I always have over 1GB RAM free even when leaving lots open! Also if you look on xda forums you can have this running on Android 6.0 via the official beta Huwaei 313 ROM very easily and it's been rock solid for me and my daily driver' as they say for several weeks now without issues.
Nice. Was just looking at various Chinese phones as an upgrade to my K3 Note (great phone but want something with a gyro to play with Google glass). This is not much more money than ordering something with similar spec from HK, so heat from me and have ordered one.
Daughter wanted this for her birthday today but best i could find was £170 refurb off ebay with 14 day warranty.
Ordered- but going in to town to see if i can get my hands on one today.

Thanks OP

One left in bradford forster square which i think staff will buy

I have honor 7 made by huawei it has a finger print reader which is amazing and fast too also has a ir blaster. Maybe what your looking for similar to this phone has a bigger battrey and a arguably better camera and a very slightly updated processor. It costs around 210 but Amazon warhorse deals comes every now and then selling it for less than 200. If you need all that apart from that this is a great deal for not a lot of money. If you need all that stuff get the honor 7 if not save yourself some money get this. The only thing I don't like about this phone is the battrey life as for me it will just get me through the day but for others this may not be a issue

I totally agree, I think Amazon did it for £170 lightning deal, brand new. I can't recommend it highly enough. Ticks all your boxes.
can anyone briefly summarise what difference no Lite will make?

Thanks
This or stick with my S5?

Stick with the S5 till it's dead, then move to a new phone. Better phones will always come up as technology improves.
