Huawei's gargantuan Mate 8 phablet was announced yesterday and, of course, someone managed to run benchmarks on the new device. The Mate 8 carries Huawei's home-made Kirin 950 SoC and it did visit AnTuTu before, when it scored 79,131 points – well above current flagships like the Galaxy S6, which scored 67,520 points.Well, in a new test that was, apparently, performed today, the Mate 8 reached an impressive score of 94,250. It's hard not to take this result with a grain of salt, but we have to say – we'd love to take the phablet through some heavy paces when we get our hands on it. At this point, one can only wish that this sort of power is paired with a high level of software optimizations, making the phone snappy, responsive and unstoppable.

It rocks … [Read more...] about Huawei Mate 8 takes another swing at AnTuTu benchmarks, scores beyond expectations
When the Huawei Mate S was released last September, one of the features it had was Force Touch. If you're unfamiliar with this, it is the technology that allows the display to read how hard the user is pressing down on the screen. The phone can tell if the glass is being lightly tapped, tapped using 'normal' force, or pressed hard. The phone will respond differently to each level of force. You might have seen this on the Apple iPhone 6s or Apple iPhone 6s Plus marketed as 3D Touch.Three months after the release of the Huawei Mate S, the manufacturer released its flagship model for the year, the Huawei Mate 8. Surprisingly, there was no Force Touch feature on the device. But it appears that Huawei might be producing a new version of the phone with the capability to detect the amount of pressure being put on the screen. China's TENAA regulatory agency has certified a new variant of the Mate 8 and while the specs match the model already released, there is speculation that this new Mate 8 … [Read more...] about New variant of Huawei Mate 8 certified by TENAA adds Force Touch?
Huawei is no stranger to making good Android smartphones, and the rise of the company's popularity among consumers proves it. A 9.7% global smartphone share is, indeed, a considerable figure. To succeed in the high-end segment, however, being good is not enough. It takes a truly great device to stand firmly at the top of the food chain, and the Huawei Mate 8 could be just that. Officially announced back in November, the phablet is now on display here at CES 2016, so we gave it the hands-on treatment without hesitation.DesignThe Huawei Mate 8 is one of those phones that give you a positive impression the very moment you pick them up. Arguably, its design is its strongest asset, being a phone that blends premium looks, slim construction, and a killer scree-to-body ratio. Just holding it alone, the handset reminds us of the styling we've seen employed in the Nexus 6P – sans the hump over the camera module, of course. That metal build helps to elevate and exemplify the Mate 8's … [Read more...] about Huawei Mate 8 hands-on: a high-end phablet worthy of attention

Although I despise them for making the GPU a four cluster than something more preferable like the MP6, all I could say that this phone is one of huaweis big step into a better future for their smartphone product line. Their chipsets were often weak, and the ISP performance was just trash.
