I put the phone back to factory to test it out.
So usage time 13h 4g
SOT 3 hours
At 50 % battery albeit first cycle so interested to see if its any better going forward.
Notifications work correctly now:good:


Who ever thought deciding whether to switch phones or not would be stressful :laugh:

This.. Haha. I'm still doubting to buy this phone. I can live with most the lack of Google apps, only chromecast and Strava are holding me back a bit. Please keep posting your experiences here guys! :)

screen on time seems really bad with google services...
Some reviews got 10h screen on time with quite heavy(but not full blown) usage.

Maybe I should reinstall gms? Think I'm gonna try it stock for a while and see how much of an inconvenience it is living in the Huawei eco

Netflix works fine version 7.52:D

Second cycle so far
15h usage
SOT 3h
73% battery left

Yup, although I did the update first when I got my phone, then installed gms.

Hi,

Which method/backup did you use? I have noticed there are at least two different backups being used so maybe one could be better than the other in terms of battery efficiency?
I am much happier with the current cycle but still far from your results...
Will post mine once this cycle is about to finish.

Cheers,
L.
This one.

It seems the same as the other ones but only this one worked for me (I probably messed up the other times)

Using 90Hz and without Google you get ~ 7h SOT (50% LTE/50% Wifi), using Google you'll get around 10% less SOT.

Do we know if gms needs reinstalling after every Huawei update?
No, you won't have to reinstall.

Oh that's great news about not having to reinstall gms after a software update.
The only thing stopping me from installing the gms is the possible security risk of the modded files and then putting your login details in for the Google accounts...

Same! Would be nice if anyone could shine some light on thus :).

And Netflix version 7.52, does it support HD then?

Jsut finished the best battery cycle so far with GMS, getting closer to the results I was expecting. It's like the battery is getting better if that makes sense?
Much happier now:)

Most of the day using the camera and netflix and the usual social networking...

Used 22 h 6 min
8 h 38 min SOT

Cheers,
L.

That's quite impressive, I'm tempted to put gms back onto this device.? Which is the best method atm?

Not sure buddy , I followed this video...

And when I looked for it on youtube for this reply I have just noticed he has released a new video... only a few minutes ago. What a coincidence!
Apparently with this method you do not get notifications errors from Google...
