I would say this is probably the most advance phone yet, followed by the Meizu pro 5. I'm glad it doesn't have more than a full HD display because it's just not needed on a 6". My computer monitor is 22" and that is just below full HD and even that has an acceptable pixal density at close range. This obsession with increasing the resolution is nothing but a marketing strategy, unless you want to start viewing your display with a magnification glass!
Also, everyone is saying the gpu is poor? It's the top Mali-880,which I did research on just now and it's the latest and greatest, higher than the one in the Samsung galaxy s6 edge plus which is the mali-760.please correct me if I'm wrong though!

Its so hard to put an 8 core GPU in a snartphone ? Even iphone has an 6 core GPU now,we are almost in 2016 not 2012-2013.So this phone will run almost all games perfectly,but what about other big apps,and emulators etc.The power of this CPU will be wasted with a poor GPU.

That's the maximum practical size to get inside any average side trouser pocket "not tight one" ... & I cant go back to any lesser tiny screen than 8 inch ... very practical useful sheer screen size real estate for real deep enjoying in surfing web large text many contents in one view & very entertaining games & watching Movies & photos ... waiting for Tab S3 next year since the tab S2 is smaller 8.0 inch & 4:3 screen ratio which is not good though ... praise & hail large screens
wonder why all top brands not design a phone with 2 sim slots and 1 SD card slot for their flagshop device while they can do this for all their low-mid end devices. wonder why?

5.5 is the max limit for a "normal" use.
What i hate the most with giant screens is that you have no more privacy. Everyone can see what you do or watch or type.
i'm really surprised is not supporting USB-C i wonder why thay didnt . i think most flagship phones coming 2016 will adopt the USB C port.
No way there's no 4k recording on this beast... I guess it's missing on the spec list
i love huawei mate 7 ralay this gorila phone very nice i am using mate 7

And notice you said "hands," I thought phones were supposed to be used with one most of the time, isn't that why some companies offer the option to adjust the interface for one handed use on their phablets? Even the stock app drawer in Android 6.0 is vertically oriented now because of that sole reason.

Heck even 801/805 with its Adreno 330 is still pretty darn fast in this day and age.
Dre, 27 Nov 2015The Kirin 950 is way ahead of the current Samsung processor.Thanks to that Cortex A72, but gpu is abysmal. Doesn't matter this phone will be an afterthought after the S7/Edge releases early next year.

This is very very immature when people complain about display size of a phone.
