I really wanted this phone and found it doesn't have infrared a feature I've now gotten used to for the TV etc. Without that I don't think I'd now get one, such a shame I really wanted this phone.
Add: stylus, IR-blaster and LTE band 20 (800 MHz) and you've got a rocker!!
Phones can all take rain and things like that as long as they are not submerged, I really see waterproofing as an extra but its always good to have
Yes the direction to go is Huawei Mate 8 or LG G4. Forget about Samsung Note 5 or S6 edge + They are overpriced. There was an article in CNN pointing out why Samsung & Apple are making Hand Phones without Memory Card Slot. They want to rip you off for more money. To make a Hand Phone with a built-in memory of say 128GB it only cost them $44.00 extra and they can charge you for $200.00 more. Why would Samsung want to continue to make Phones with Card Slot. A very good marketing strategy and they give you reason that with Memory Slot it will slow down the Hand Phone. What a crap. Now we know why Apple make so so so much money from you. Samsung learn this Trick from Apple to boost up their Profit Margin.
I have Three Questions'
1. Does is has 4k display?
2. Is it water proof?
3. Does it has TV remote controller?
I am counting down the days literally to Sept 2nd.. Huawei has seen everything we have and they must have laughed at Samsung's launch of the SGN5 only launching in very select countries ie USA?
There is a reason Huawei is third in the world they build amazing phones at a reasonable price as soon as the Huawei mate 8 is launched im giving my money to 4gb 64gb version probably in Gold i dont care about the cost...Super Smart phone here we come!!!
This is the best phablet in the making! Mate 7 only lacks OIS ang 4k. This will be the best..
AnonD-69311, 19 Aug 2015Like many of us we have been waiting for a Super smart phone in 2015.. every single phone so f... moreI totally agree with you.
Samsung has been a total disaster with both - Note 5 as well as as S6 Edge+
Specs seems really promising. Atleast on paper.
Looks like its time to change the brand to Huawei and ditch Samsung :D
since note 5 is a no-go...is either mate 8 or lg g4 pro now..which has better camera or batter value over money...
AnonD-69311, 19 Aug 2015Like many of us we have been waiting for a Super smart phone in 2015.. every single phone so f... moreright. with s810 fiasco and apple galaxy s6/note5 shameful copy. this will be a candidate for super smartphone of 2015.
Like many of us we have been waiting for a Super smart phone in 2015.. every single phone so far has been disappointing only giving us a small bump in specs and in some cases taking features away ala Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
Don't get me wrong like many of us we have had the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and last year Samsung got it right but this year Samsung has blown it. Sorry that's how i feel!!!
I have studied every single phone nothing excites me at all apart from ONE phone the Haewei Mate 8 here are the highlights.
2k display 490 ppi 6.1 inch IPS
available in 3gb and 4gb ddr4 ram
32 / 64gb internal memory
supports now upto sandisk 200gb micro sd card
4500 mah battery
Kirin 950 soc
Mali t880 gpu most powerful gpu on the market currently.
there has been mention of a Haewei force touch
Finger Print recognition
Android 5.1 updated to Marshmallow
Speakers located in same position as Samsung Galaxy S6
Front Camera 8 mega pixel Sony Sensor 1080p recording
Rear Camera 21 mega pixel Sony Sensor 4k UHD recording
Recent leaks on Geekbench show the kirin 950 benched results
single core score of 1909
Multi core score of over 6000
That currently puts Haewae at the top of the tree but in day to day use the Mate 7 last year played all games including games like GTA Vice City at full settings showing smoother frame rates than the Iphone 6 Plus.
So this is why i am waiting for this phone all in all Haewei said they wanted to create the best Phablet of 2015 and they are on course to do so roll on 2nd September IFA Berlin.
Anonymous, 31 Jul 2015what about optical image stabalization? spec shows no OIS... thats a bad thingyes without ois it is very bad
Umm, no it shouldn't. 6 inches is fine considering how other phone makers don't have 6 inch phones. There are PLENTY of Smaller phones for you people with tiny hands, but its about time someone made a phone catered to us bigger hands.
all things is good about mate 8 but the screen size must be about 5.2inch 6 is big. The body should be about 6 mm.love. u huawei
this is a dual active sim guys....
and only problem is being so pricey the OS update is no where seen.....
will they update any time.
