Just like the Nexus 6P, the Huawei Mate 8 is one top notch smartphone that you should buy. This article takes you through 5 reasons as to why you should get yourself one of the gadgets.
Inspired by the success of the Nexus 6P, Huawei seeks to become the next Android giant. We are using the word “seeks” but in real sense the company is already a force to reckon with.
Analysis done in the first quarter of 2015 show Huawei as the third largest seller behind Apple and Samsung. You got it right, Huawei has grown much bigger than Lenovo, Motorola, LG, Sony, OnePlus, BlackBerry and Xiaomi.
What’s more, the brand is flexible in the sense that it’s doing great both in the mid and high-end smartphones.
In efforts to maintain the good name that company has managed to built, the Huawei Mate 8 was released into the market immediately after the demise of the Galaxy Note 7.
The Mate 8 comes with exciting features that we have carefully gone through below. The following are the top 5 reasons why you should buy yourself a Huawei Mate 8.
- The Design Looks Great
The Nexus 9P was a great looking gadget during its launching. The Honor 5 X also made by Huawei was a good-looking smartphone. But the release of the Mate 8 nullified all that as it looks super-great compared to them all.
Its rating as a premium handset is worth it and its all body is made of aluminum. It does not matter the angle at which you look at it, the looks are still as better as ever. This is unlike the Nexus 6P that somewhat appears dull when observed from the front.
The size is also big – 157.1 x 80.6mm – while the display is a 1080p. Huawei is known for its ability to deliver large displays crammed inside a smaller-than-expected body and the Mate 8 is no different.
The metal finish is most definitely premium in the hand and the precise curves and gradient of the rear provide the handset with its ergonomic feel.
- Has a great Display
Just before its launch, rumors were bound that Huawei would produce the next gadget with a QHD display. But upon its release, it became apparent that the firm had decided to use the Full HD resolution. The FHD resolution is a much satisfactory one considering the premium status of the Huawei Mate 8. The device is perfect for anyone after a bigger screening that makes reading simple instead of just having increased display space.
What about in direct light? Huawei hasn’t always been the best smartphone to use in direct sunlight but the Mate 8 is definitely one of the company’s better attempts. In direct sunlight (or even incandescent or tungsten lighting), it’s easy enough to see what’s on the display as long as the brightness is set to full and auto brightness is turned off.
- Mate 8 is Super Fast
The West is yet to fully embrace the Huawei Kirin CPU. That basically means that it has to really face huge barriers as it attempts to get established in the market. Players such as Samsung, Qualcomm and NVIDIA are not giving it an easy time.
But Huawei is a big name in China, a country known to be a tech giant all over the world. Apart from investing heavily in mobile data, modems and infrastructure, Huawei also produces mobile processors. The Mate 8 comes with the octa-core 2.3GHz Kirin 950 chipset which is without doubt operates at lightning speed.
- Insane Battery Life
One of the things that some people did not like with Mate 8 is when it did not come with a QHD display. But this was an advantage, considering the 4000Mah battery was given insane lifetime – days to be precise. The longer lifetime is recorded even with heavy usage.
The Mate 8 has a league of its own when it comes to battery and all this thanks to the 1080p display and the mega battery.
- The Price is affordable compared to its peers
The price of the 32GB Huawei Mate 8 is £429 which basically means is far much cheaper compared to the closest competitors – the iPhone 6s Plus and Samsung S6 EDGE+ as well as the anticipated Galaxy S7.
