Im not a Huawei fan at first. I have been browsing around for couple of months to find a perfect phone. Some of the phones I listed to be quite good enough (planned to buy also).
1. Google Nexus 5
2. Google Nexus 6P
3. HTC M9+
4. Oneplus 2
5. Sony M5 Dual
6. Sony Xperia Z5
7. Huawei Ascend Mate 7
8. Huawei P8
and finally the Huawei Ascend Mate 8
Yes... Mate 8 seems to be promising phone from all the above interms of looks,battery,Processor,chipsets,Fingerprint sensor. All these features for a perfect flagship phone.You might have noticed i didnt mentioned Iphone and Samsung phones in my list.(thats coz I'm not a fan of these giant mobile companies). coming back to Huawei Mate 8 Im really concerned is the camera which says is 20MP (above mentioned wrongly as 16MP..) If that works fine,you wont have any further doubts in having this phone in your pockets or say your pouch(don't forget it will be 6").
Lets hope it releases this week and be in markets soon, so i can have my hands on it.
Good Luck Huawei!!
Blackstock., 21 Sep 2015Look for the Nexus 6 (2015) to look very much like the HM8.
They may even be the same device.Mate 8 has its own CPU, while N6 uses Qualcomm. This could be huge, it may impact compatibility w/ apps.
Mate 8 features IPS screen, N6 features AMOLED
Huawei usually ships w/ dual SIM slots. which is rare w/ Moto
Of course, the screen's size, and the resolution, the DPI are pretty much the same

Looks to be an awesome phone with the specification mentioned. Hope that it stands true for its quality.
have a note 3 and all new notes are dissiponting. I am waiting for mate 8. If those spec will be tru it will be best phone ever. Just make big battery and 20 mp cam. The mate s have to little battery and display.
The Huawei Mate S is a huge disappointment--small screen and tiny battery. I was waiting for the Mate 8 to arrive, but instead, I just bought another Mate 7 used, which is a great phone. My first Mate 7 was stolen.
waited so long for Samsung galaxy note 5 only to be imbaresed of Samsung after the launch... It's sad they are killing off their top of the line phone. Honestly I just hope huawei nexus has a dual sim/sd card reader... I know... wishful thinking but a rumour hunter can dream
Oh gosh! I'd like this one in stead of yet another Samsung Note.
If only it would support LTE band 20 (800 MHz) to accomodate Western Europe LTE networks... For it wouldn't make much sense to buy such a nice top specs phone and settle with just 3G networks connection in nearly all rural western Europe, would it?
When????? Please Huawei .....I don't want another Samsung! why have you announced the s? and not this? Or has this become the S ....with a small battery and screen? I want the 6" Huge battery Mate 8.
