Huawei P8 lite 2017 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing all round Amazing all round phone as it's got decent speed... No iPhone but defiantly fast for the price, really customisable, fun, good camera, amazing design. Amazing sleek design, really light and slim and feels premium and solid. Only issue is sometimes it bugs out but very little. And it's difficult to find a case which is a necessity for this phone. P.S it comes with default screen protector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value Phone! Get. It. Now! I have owned this device for two months now and wanted to hold off reviewing sooner incase any flaws appeared from this device - to which none have! The camera is of a good standard for this price point, the processor does a good job and the 3gb of ram is needed and utilised very well. Unlike other phones, it runs some predominantly IOS apps very well, including Snapchat and Instagram. Updates come in soon and performance issues are rare. Battery is amazing, always having charge until late after heavy usage in the day. I have had the battery last 2 days after light usage too! Overall, this device is great. I was skeptical of purchasing it due to several bad reviews on this site but many of them likely came from Users expecting a £700 performance from a £150 phone. I came from a Moto E3 and the phone has blown me away. My Apple friends commend many features of my phone over their iPhone 6ss although still cheaper and far more modern too.
