Beautiful Phone

ebfields has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

I currently own this phone and I love it. It is a bit slow and the battery life could be better but overall, it's still a great phone. It's also the most beautiful phone I've had and I have owned many, including Samsung S2-S4 and Notes 1-4. Great attempt Huawei,(still have my Mate 7) heading to the Mate 8 soon :-)
