    Huawei Software Updates ? 6th Feb 18 at 2:53 PM
    I've had a Huawei 5C since June 2016, it runs Huawei's software which is Emui 4.1 which is based on Android 6, Android 8 is the latest.
    I've tried updating the software via the phones software update option but it says there is no update, there are websites which show you how to update manually which I've tried but I couldn't get it to work.
    I like the Huawei phones and would consider a new one but the lack of software updates puts me off !
    I seen the Huawei P10 Lite on HotDealsUK which i like but it comes with Android 7 and I'm guessing software updates will be non existent like my current phone.
    any thoughts on this ? Thanks

    XDA have a section on the Huawei c5, you can get a number of custom roms running up to vanilla Android 7.4.

    Just depends on how much you know about rooting and flashing roms?
