Huawei has concentrated highly on the design of the Mate 8. The look and fee of the phone is exceptional with a metallic unibody design which has a soft sandblast finish on the rear surface. The technology in it is also of a high calibre and includes a powerful and efficient octa-core processor, a fingerprint sensor and 4G.
These technologies give you all the convenience and benefits of a modern smartphone at a great price.
The look and feel of a phone is important when you are using it throughout the day. Huawei has realized this and given the Mate 8 a slim design which features a metallic unibody. A meticulous process using soft sandblasting further improves the texture on the rear of the phone, making it easier to hold. To highlight the lengths Huawei has gone to with the design of the Mate 8, the usage of diamond cutting technology has given them the ability to make it appear visually thinner with cleaver edging.
It has been possible for them to fit a larger screen into a more compact casing, and achieving an 85% screen-to-body ratio.
The overall effect is a phone which looks stunning.
With the latest 16MP Sony image technology which benefits from an f/2.0 aperture and 1/2.8-inch sensor, you know high quality photos are just a click away. With the highly sensitivity nature of the sensor, noise is reduced for clearer and sharper photos, while the anti-shake technology will avoid any unnecessary blur.
Often you don’t have ideal conditions when taking photos. This is where the smart Optical Image Stabilization feature can take over and intelligently monitor light levels and makes adjustments when necessary.
The Image Sensor Processor ensures you have photos with vivid colours and clarity. This results in more accurate colour reproduction for a nature look.
Occasionally you need to take videos which capture every moment. This is where the slow motion mode is great, with it you can create videos and watch them back a ¼ the original speed. It is also possible to use Continuous Capture to shoot 100 burst shoots at 12 frames per second. This feature is perfect for any fasting moving objects.
A common complaint with modern smartphones is how often you need to charge them. The integration of a high capacity 4000 mAh battery into the specification, and the inclusion of the Kirin 950 chipset means most users will achieve over 2 days usage. Even heavy users will be able to be away from a power point for over a day.
The Kirin 950 chipset makes this possible with SmartPower technology. It monitors your apps and determines the optimum ratio between power and performance to increase battery life.
You will also spend less time charging your phone as the Mate 8 incorporates 9v/2A fast-charging technology. With it you can charge your phone to a full charge in just 2.5 hours, and achieve a fully day of use from just a 30 minute top up.
The Huawei Mate 8 has the latest technology in the form of the powerful Kirin 950 architecture. This chipset uses a dual arhitecture with four A72 2.3GHz cores and four A53 1.8 Ghz cores. The result is an intelligent structure that better manages power and efficiency based on the tasks it receives.
Having a 6 inch screen improves the ability to enjoy using apps, and makes finding websites and navigating them easier and more rewarding.
Media content including photos and movies always look better on a larger screen. With the Mate 8 you can truly enjoy your content in full 1080p resolution, and everything looks crisp and sharp with high colour saturation.
With plenty of storage to a total of 32GB, you have enough space to store all you apps, associated data and media on your phone. There is also 3GB RAM which is more than most smartphones so you can use the latest apps and games and even mutli-task. The overall effect is your phone will be more responsive and quicker to use.
