I'm curious why theres soo many people with L10 that tried to update to EMUI 3.0 despite it being classed as a development version and not suitable for general use as it wasn't on OTA also these people decided to flash another models EMUI 3.0 rom like the L07 as there was no official L10 dev rom.

Given we should all know how hard our devices are to root, flash and the incompatibilities of roms between versions etc, a reason I haven't done anything yet and still on stock it should be common knowledge that if you update you may not be able to go back to the older rom or worse brick and render your device totally unusable.

I know some people are eager to try the latest, but I don't see the point in potentially risking your device just to do it especially if you don't know about roms, flashing and other things, which allot of those trying would be very new and unskilled in this area. If you have a device you can write off to learn or a open device like a nexus which is a lot safer (even then upgrades are usually non backwards compatible as fastboot and bootloaders even get updated) then yeah sure go ahead but one must remember that doing things like this is high risk for devices like ours and a problem could end up costing a new phone / device and one should be prepared for that scenario without getting upset.

I just find it strange soo many on this forum jumped in to a beta development version while crying because it wasn't available for their device and then flashing other models roms.

Also all the people trying to force xposed to run, as it seems they might feel that without it there phone is unusable and worthless to them, there is a good chance it won't work without a lot of work or modification to system files, especially with certain modules as you can see reading some of the posts in this forum.

While I agree with learning and tinkering overall, be safe and smart with roms, flashing, xposed etc don't risk your device unless you know what you are doing just to have the latest beta or development version, which these words mean that the rom has a few bugs mby a couple major ones also and isn't ready for mainstream public usage or those trying to use xposed just to have a transparent status bar etc which isn't worth the risk and modifications to the system for a few minor ui tweaks.

Also I mentioned earlier about kinda advert notifications here is Huawei pushing out one for their Cloud app reminding you to use their online storage. Pressing on the notification opens the cloud app.

As mentioned I don't have too much of an issue and happens occasionally not all the time, the update app for example has updated the inbuilt apps like file browser music player etc you can't do otherwise, and only once had a huawei vmall shop notification advert and a couple others for other preloaded apps you could remove so not really fussed just showing what is sent thats all.

Emui 3.0 b608 has been pushed live on OTA for L00 in the last few hours.

Grabbing it down now will let you guys know how it goes.

So far seems ok ok testing I don't know about call quality etc as I hardly get calls.

Main thing to me is data reception which I mentioned earlier in the thread wasn't the best.

Seems they made it look like L with navigation etc despite it being 4.4.2 still.

Also a way to root this rom will be nice

If I were you, think twice,please read it careful what a client said:

If Huawei does not provide to the international people up-to-date Software, they will lose many customers, I am the one who will choose Samsung, iphone or Sony smartphones for daily use, since these devices are being updated permanently and this is very important to fix bugs and to have the best apps in our devices. This is the first time I use a Huawei product and unfortunetly for huawei the last one. Ask Apple costumers one of the main reasons why they enjoy buying iphones or ipads, most of them will say: "because of the constant updates they receive in their devices via ota". This is also called good aftersells service.

Exactly . But my question is : Even with not the best software , with that hardware , the phone should be ok in this range price , no ?
I fear bugs , amateur bugs , but is temptenting when you look at the paper and see FHD, 4G , MicroSD slot , 13 mpx , 2gb ram etc etc.
But then , again , i don't care about antutu's , and some kind of numbers. I want daily use experience and feedback from people that have one. Thanks

I sold my Moto G (2014) a few days ago to get the P7 at an attractive price (250 euro, sim-free). The P7 clearly has a better screen and camera. There is a difference in processing power but it's not very evident in everyday usage. Where there is a very noticeable difference is in free RAM where P7 always leaves at least 800 MB free while to Moto G easily dips below 200 MB.

It's a matter of priorities. The Moto G is dual-sim, its stereo front speakers are just heaven and it will be on Lollipop extremely soon. The P7 is way mote luxurious, a little more powerful in practice, it has a superb 8 MP front camera and it's a 4G phone, a feature that I use extensively here in Greece. I really have good things to say for both devices and it's all up to you which one you need more.

It really does seem to be where you are as to which version is on sale. As you can see, not all versions are NFC enabled. The single sim phones have an SD only slot. The dual sim phones have a slot which can accept both sim and SD. I think the different versions relate to which LTE bands the phone can use. They are all the same on 2G & 3G. If you want 4G, you need to know which bands are in use in your area and select a phone to match. Otherwise it probably doesn't matter which model you choose unless you want dual sim. You may wish to contact Huawei for advice.

does anyone have the specs for the L11, which show what 4g frequencies it actually supports? thanks!
