I'm kind of looking for a new phone (I ordered the Oppo Find 5, but they failed to ship it and I cancelled the order), so I'll wait for a review; also, waiting for more info about Huawei's update policy. The price isn't bad, but it isn't cheap either.
My current device is a Galaxy Note (the first one), but Samsung is really annoying with the updates, so probably my next phone won't be a Samsung anymore (I'm still on 4.0.4 because they didn't release the update to 4.1.x in my country).

That said though asbro, at least you can flash another countries update to your device, you won't find anyone updating much more regularly than Samsung!
