The fact you think Huawei make 'garbage' is just proof you have no idea what you are talking about.
My current phone is a HTC One M7, and I recently got hold of a Huawei H60-L04 Honor 6 that a friend has. For almost half the cost of mm HTC, the phone is incredible. I've now pre-ordered one for myself as my HTC One camera has failed (with a common fault where low light photo's turn Blue/Purple), the battery barely lasts a day, and the phone gets incredibly hot...and it's been like this since just over a year after purchase.
I've previously owned other HTC's, as well as Samsung, Sony and also Huawei, and Huawei quality is up there with the best of them on the high end models.

...One is made by a company who is known for making a bunch of un cared of garbage(huawei Of course) and one is a unique brand who basically made android when it was first announced, and a brand who knows how to make a flagship phone(hTC)

Yes, agree too. HTC has fantastic UI. I used to have HTC One X and I love it's UI but other than that it is just a normal Android Phone with ridiculous over pricing. LG, I never try it but my last experience is the Interface is not so impressive (either Samsung) and lack of software supports (OS updates). Sony was my top wanted in my Smart Phone hunting list but soon I found that their camera is not that good at all. To be fair none of the current Smart Phone is producing good quality image especially in the low light condition. Too much blurry and white noise and this is the limitation of the hardware (no doubt about it).
For Samsung, I love the Note 3 when I first have it but slowly I found that their software response start to showing lagging. My opinion is nothing to do with the latest Android OS but something to do with the Samsung software optimization. It purposely less optimise and wanted you feel the hardware is not capable of running on your OLD device. In fact, our current Smart Phone like Note 3 or Xiaomi Mi3 are far powerful enough to run KitKat without feeling any lagging. That is why I always suggest people to get a phone like Xiaomi Mi3 spec with only USD250 where you can't get it elsewhere.
Nice sharing by the way.

No.1: HTC One Series
No.2: Sony Xperia Z Series
No.3: LG G Series
To Yong: Yes you're right about Samsung. Their software is still laggy if you buy a low or mid range phone. Samsung became largest mobile phone manufacturer/seller because of their agressive advertisement all over the world. Nowdays Samsung is everywhere - radio, tv, web, billboards. Advertisement rule the world. Worse is that when you say to a consumer Android phone he thinks Samsung phone. In my opinion top 3 brands for Android phones: 1.HTC (best UI, design and build quality) 2.LG (best price/specs ratio) 3.Sony (best cameras). Nokia is the best cameraphones in the moment but using the awful (my opion) WP. :)

What kind of copy do you mean? I bough a few different model of Huawei and actually I am quite impress of some of the utilities apps that you never get from S*****g. I have a Note 3 actually and I like Note 3 because of the PEN and sometimes the SmartStay. The rest of the features just gimmick sad to say!
So in terms of the software apps in Huawei is actually not that bad but the responsiveness of touch screen is bothering me. :(

is y530 premium?is g525 premium?im sure you dont know what premium means
Apple and HTC copy each other but at least they have a licensing agreement. Huawei is just pure copy like Samsung. At least Huawei is also copying the metal body.

You are right. Their software optimization on the performance is current not their selling point to be honest. This takes time but at least one good thing is their are chasing it recently especially their P7 model.
If we step back and think about it, what do you expect with such a low price but premium build quality?
Back to the topic, I think this company is picking up on the smart phone market and it is just the matter of time.
By the way, thinking back to 2005 Samsung's phone at that time their performance was way too crap (lagging like hell but full of gimmick features like PDF viewer on 3" screen) but now it is one of the giant Smart Phone company.
To Yong: I've tried couple of Huawei devices and I'm not satisfied with them. I sell smartphones so I have access to different brands and models from low end to high end. Yes Huawei are with very low prices but at the cost of build quality. It's the consumer who decides which to buy - cheap Huawei or overpriced iPhone or Samsung. On my opinion LG are now best smartphones - balanced between build quality and price.
P.S. I'm using HTC. :)
Good job stealing Huawei,gimmicks made in China are as fake as this clone you call a phablet, is that Godzilla's phone?
and now majority commenter here belive this story, omg!
you do know internet but do not know picture editing
Not a lot of people know Huawei. It is the world leading company who made the wireless networking especially 3G dongles. Most 3G dongles that selling from the Telco are all from Huawei. They are now making their own chipset is not a surprising move. Most importantly they are making affordable consumer device unlike S*****g. In fact most of the recent models from Huawei are premium level of design. Buy one and try it out instead of keep bull shitting words over here.
Don't be races or looking down those company from China, they have more talents than any other country in the world.
come and dont call a Huawei a copy-paste company hah? the latest tablets are like HTC and APPLE too check on their phone list and same sized window case copied from samsung on their tablets -_- come on
To Anonymous: Hahah good try, mate! Sorry, but I'm not a US nationalist. I can't stand USA because of their "peaceful" politics. USA is the biggest war maker after WWII and all of their wars are for "peace" (oil, drugs & money). So lets go back to the main topic: I'm just saying the obvious thing that Huawei are copy-paste company. Have a nice day! :)
