Regarding Optical zoom phones.
Yes, many others already had their zoom phones out few years ago, the problem is they all have these two issues:
1. picture quality is bad.
2. the phone is too huge, it's already a camera size.
Most expensive one will go for $1200 LOL. Xiaomi does that for half of the price with the MIX and destroys it design wise. Bye Huawei!
samer1970, 26 Oct 2016sorry .. Qualcomm GPU allways wins .Qualcomm gpu are not very good.
samer1970, 26 Oct 2016sorry .. Qualcomm GPU allways wins .Nah, Kirin always wins.
Why they don't place 4 cameras for different zoom as apple did on iphone 7 plus??? hahahahahaha
DantE O2, 26 Oct 2016is that your speculation or you're talking about a benchmark?Both. Benchmarks show it has a slightly better single core cpu and gpu than the sd821. But in reality Huawei tends to do better than benchmarks suggest (maybe because the multicore cpu is well ahead of the competition), plus the lower resolution would help further. So next year the s8 and friends would blow it out the water in benchmarks, but in reality not by much.
Someone Else, 26 Oct 2016Because micro sd card are cheaper than internal storage. FYI Most people don't give a damn abo... moreand we have high speed micro sd cards as well.still cheaper than internal nands.
Big Oso, 26 Oct 2016Yes I know it will come with the 960. This is showing how good the Kirin CPU is. Ahhh okay
Gonna be too expensive (for my taste) when released, but, the Mate8 was too expensive, which is why I bought one about a month ago, because with the 9 coming, they are dumping the 8 to cut inventory. Same might happen NEXT year when the 10 or whatever they call it, is announced. I prefer to buy the end of this years model, than the early this years model simply because it's too expensive, too new, might have bugs. Buy the time the production run is winding down, it's usually been upgraded and any bugs have been eliminated.
alex1212121, 26 Oct 2016Why do you care for a super slow microSD,when the phone will have 128/256gb of super fast stor... moreThat's what Samsung want's you to believe. Sure there are slow cards around, but there are also plenty of fast ones. Like the sandisk extreme or samsungs own
UFS 2.0 does 2.9Gbits/s transfer rate as a best case scenario, which is roughly 360MBps
Sandisk extreme does 95MBps, and Samsung's one does 90MBps.
Those speeds are way more than sufficient for photo and video and is good enough to offload rarely used apps.
At a price of $45 for 32GB, you can't beat it. UFS 2.0 would cost you at least $100 per every tier of smartphone storage.
Someone Else, 26 Oct 2016Hahahah. Just stop with your jokes. If you really care about optical zoom, you should had boug... morethe Kzoom is Shitslow compared to the mate series for value for money its truely best value i currently own a p9 love the phone to bits i had a samsung before and no way hell no to much problems sent it in twice for firmware reloads and the cam gave in now with my p9 its been 2 months not a days problem with the samsung i had problems on my first day and for months on end then i switched to huawei and never want to go back to crapsung
kai, 26 Oct 2016i care the most is optical 4x zoom. I've been waiting for a mobile with this feature for years... moreGood feature to have, but there are several phones that have this feature or better. My Samsung Galaxy S5 has 4X Zoom, which is great. But I go agree, the Mate 9 does look like a monster of a phone! If it is released in the UK, I am seriously considering this for my next handset.
