Huawei P8 lite 2017 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 77.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Intermittent GPS Signal Took the first phone back as it hardly ever picked up a GPS signal, which I need for Sat Nav on Google maps and clocking in and out of work jobs. Second phone was exactly the same, wish I'd taken that one back too. Also the phone locks up quite often and takes a while to catch up with commands. Not impressed and wouldn't buy another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone for the price! I bought it about 6 months ago. If you use your phone for texting, browsing and social media, you won't be disappointed! Had an iPhone before and I prefer this phone by far! I liked it so much, I bought one for my partner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For me, a good phone at the price Bought several weeks ago, and after mastering it have found it to be very good, for what I want - basic e-mails and texts plus phone calls. Took a few goes to master the answer or reject call function, till I realised you had to slide the selector disk on the screen to left or right, which of course adds a safety feature to prevent mistaken accepting or rejecting calls. Display is clear and works fast enough for me (a 71 year old pensioner). I found that the use of a "dobber" helpful when selecting characters from the keyboard and icons etc So far not been able to get the finger print recognition to work - probably because my finger tips are worn so the finger prints are not clear - any easy to remember 6 digit pin code works well enough for me. Setting the "sleep" time to a bit longer than the default 30 seconds was better for me. Very useful that notifications display both e-mails (from 2 accounts) and text messages, so I can choose to igore or open and read the full message if I want to. Camera seems OK, although only used it for a few test photos so far. I bought a max size memory card, but now not sure if a smaller one would have sufficed. Another review gave info on the type of card recommended by Huawei. Overall, for what I wanted a very goof phone, so far. I did buy a case as some readers said was slippery - and yes it was. Cases econimical enough froma well known internet retailer beginning wirth "A". Also bought screen protector glass cover - but read reviews as some not all they are cracked up to be (parson the pun). My wife is now hinting about her Birthday and she would like one as well. Carphone warehouse service brilliant. Recomended.
