What do you mean by "root and then talk about it"??? This is HUAWEI, which need to allow us to root phones.
BTW, I'm not a girl, i'm a boy :)
Agphonenut, 05 Jan 2016Could someone please let me know if this phone will work on uk carriers please thank u How to delete mistaken post?
Seems to be Excellent Phone, but "Fast battery charging: 37% in 30 min" is it a typo?
Like Mate S, here we have a device that is lovable (esp. if you go and grab one in your hand - trust me), BUT then you read weird things in the specs.
Let see (reading the specs from top down)...
1) I am all in for the huge screen, but I don't care about the "but is enough DPI for your eyes" discussion (so you can see with MY eyes?) and now accept QHD as the de facto for large screen flagships. 1080p, no.
2) They seem to have forgotten (!?!?!?) the force touch that is also supposedly coming for the 128GB Mate S, which although I saw demos, I don't think they will release (both the S force-touch and the S 128GB version). Where is force touch?
(note that I don't actually care about this feature and find it stupid - yet, they promised it, so where is it?...)
3) Emotion UI... Does it still lack app folder? (!!!). Also, knuckle-sense (or how they call it): Stupid. Really now. Have it since it is already implemented (and doesn't hurt), but don't advertise it. :D
4) Kirin 950... Yes it supposedly flies. But 1080p makes this, way more easy.
5) Camera seems to be top spec, but "I am not buying" it before seeing tests, since the optics are questionable. Who makes them and with what expertise.
6) WHERE IS 4K capture?
7) ...f/2.0 and 1/2.8" sensor size are not top spec actually. They are just ok.
8) microUSB 2.0 is yesterday news. Yes it is a "practical choice" but we need to move on (and I have).
That said, based on my experience with Mate S, we are talking about TOP BUILD quality (makes the iPhone seem cheap actually!) and fantastic (possibly the best) fingerprint sensor.
I don't know. Certainly good enough device to sell VERY well worldwide and allow Huawei (who are a giant in electronics anyway) build more "international-spec'ed" devices...
I am absolutely in love with this phone, was crushed when it didnt launch in the US after CES. Should I order the international version on amazon or wait until it launches in US? What if any is the difference?
Rick03, 09 Jan 2016I like powerfull machines and I don't have problem to pay for it :-)Then get a mainframe better.
would be much better a Mate 8 mini 5 inch fullhd same specs 3100 mah 78% screen ratio.
I have Honor 7 is it great but 5.2 is too big with massive lower bezel
I would always prefer this site to all for regular smartphones specs.

My colleague has low end phone and he is always angry because his phone is slow and he has to wait.

Means you can actually call both of the sims using two separate phone, both call can go through. It won't like others dual sim card phone, when one is engaged another one is unavailable.

For me is a biggest problem, where to buy it. I need dual sim versions and in my country is not possible to buy both machines.
