    There's no such thing as developer options on the Huawei p8 lite. - Reply

    Go to your 'about phone' option in settings and press 'build number's seven times and you'll have a message saying 'youre now a developer'. Press back and above the about phone there will be 'developer options' available.

I have the same problem but came across a solution that might work for you. For bluetooth put your phone in flight mode and switch on bluetooth. For wifi you should remove your media card that could be damaged.

Hello, my smartphone is Huawei P8 Lite too, and 7 months old, I experienced WiFi not connected because I went and I went to a Huawei service counter and the official replaced the motherboard device. and my officer said that the wifi problem was indeed a weakness of Huawei P8 Lite. and now after 2.5 years my phone has experienced the same thing again, while to replace the Huawei p8lite motherboard the price is quite expensive, buying a new smartphone is the solution.

Zahroh R J A - Reply

Mon huawei P8 lite 2017 active bien le WiFi Direct … mais quand on veut l’utiliser, un message qui reste à l’écran 1/4 de seconde indique que pour l’instant, seules les échanges avec d’autres appareils huawei sont autorisées. et bien sûr, bien qu’on arrive sans aucun problème à établir la connexion avec d’autres appareils, comme mon Samsung, toute utilisation du transfert entre les deux machines échoue. bravo leur conception deu monde “OPEN” d’Androïd !!!
