Good looking, premium body, snappy and flagship for 15k is a steal. The dual cameras take very nice and sharp pictures. Low light photos can be disappointing because of lack of optical image stabilization, but if you manage to keep your hands steady you'll get some great low light photographs as well. Given the home produced hisilicon Kirin 950 processor and 4gb ram make sure that you never experience any lag. The mono speaker does an amazing job in producing clear and high quality sound. It is not too loud but the volume is enough that you'll not have any complaints. Battery life is quite impressive after Huawei provided an updated and it gives me 10hrs of extensive use(WiFi, social media, lil gaming, photography, etc) with 100% charge. It doesn't support 4k recording given that others in this price range does.
The Good
  • Fast and snappy processor
  • Great camera quality
  • Premium looks
  • Supports fast charging
  • More than average battery life given its just 3000mah battery
The Bad
  • Doesn't support 4k recording
  • Average low light photography
  • Might not recieve Oreo update (there is no official word yet though, still have some hopes)
