GPU is still really weak for a QHD display. Full HD would be a better choice.
Mate 8 with Kirin 950 is the game changer and that make the different in terms of battery and performance. Go read the Kirin 950 information.
Sounds mega nice. But FM radio? WTF? Why not dab radio,
that would have been a kicker!
Steve, 23 Oct 2015I really hope that this phone is truly coming up

I'm using Mate 7 now, and it's amazing on T-Mobile's network (Metro Pcs brand of course).
With a processor's speeds such as on upcoming Mate 8, web page loading will almost feel like on a hope PC!
The interface and browsing is definitely faster than Samsung's Note 3 and Note 4 models.
Moreover, those Samsung models have much stronger Android Lag during web scrolling.
You wont realize what a nightmare Samsung interface and lag is untill you try Huawei's top phone.

Some people asking for removable battery???? Come on! It's 2015!!! There are plenty of portable battery banks! Those are extremely better than a removable battery.
Besides this, the Mate 7 hardly ever gets dried out of battery juice, so the we can expect the Mate 8 to be even better.
Huawei is going rock solid in their offerings. I hope they continue to do so.
If the card slot will be different than the second sim slot I will definitely buy it.
the huawei mate 8 works in argentina - personal ?
whats are the bands here ?
I dont know why they not make seperate slot for memory card instead of sim 2 slot :(

My previously owned p6 received multiple firmware updates not neccesarily in android version BUT upgrades in FUNCTIONALITY. Last major one introduced new functions as call recorder, remote control via wifi w screencast, new lockscreen controls etc. And it received them even after the 1st year mark unlike other big names out there.
I've even tested the service unwillingly when i've bricked my P6 and they exchanged the motherboard inside with no questions asked. So, Huawei gained my respect and now I have the P8 wich, by the way, recieved 2 updates so far.

I even had a tablet that was advertised to have kitkat installed, and it shipped with Jellybean. To this day, it still doesn't even have kitkat.
