"...it can't record 4K 2160p video..."
Oh please, as if "phones" can truly capture the sharpness of 4K. It's the same with 1080P I've yet to see a phone that can capture the detail of a good blu-ray 1080P nat-geo or discovery film. Or any film for that matter. Most 1080P I see look more like upscaled vga. If they provide 4K video then I EXPECT better than blu-ray captures not the crap we have today.
"...despite having to render 78% more pixels,..."
Imagine what fantastic figures they would have got with FHD instead of those performance wasting 78% more pixels. 15fps+78%=26fps, I'd rather have THAT onscreen performance than a stupid 15fps (which looks goddamn awful in games and video). Which actually demote the usefulness of both 4K video and QHD screens, you can't view the 4K 30fps capture at 30fps!?!?!?
I like that bracelet though. IMHO it's one o/t more useful "smartwatches". But how do charge it? Do you need to remove it from the bracelet or does it need the bracelet to charge? Come on GSM-arena. You left out the most interesting part of Huawei's products (the phones aren't interesting, they're too expensive for what you get)
Hey people, we must wait and see revies from users. And only after we can compare this phone with others. Till then, here we make only supposition! I own an ascend p7, wich for my needs is super, and it is quite looking superb. It works verry good. And before that i had an ascend y330, of what i was verry pleased. It works good after 3 years.
What i want to say is that every user has his needs, and every user search the smartphone wich he think will complete almost all his needs!
That's a nice lock screen copy of Windows phones' lock screen.
95% the same. Even the fonts is strikingly similar.
I'm glad that other manufacturers are trying to catch up to Windows's advanced UI. (most advanced UI in the mobile market)
I congratulate the photographer for a great job. But the camera i say would be way below average.
dont be so negative people.
This makes a GREAT bargain in the used market.
Imagine carrying one just with data plan.
YOu can upload any shots immediately.
consider it a camera w internet access.
Huawei has wrong to the essential, the CPU, which pulled down the phone.
Skyfall Forever, 07 Apr 2016Unfortunately, the P9 can compare, just used the S7 Samsung, because of that, use Kirin chipse... moreHave you ever referred to the essence of truth, in relation to P9. I congratulate you.
XdaDevX, 07 Apr 2016whay u need ir for ?!?!? nobody never used it.. I never used it..Ir blaster is useful. But even when u don't use ir feature, They should add ir to the standard ver, even the cheaper honor 7 and mi5 have it.. This phone is insanely overpricing since u don't get max features...
5.2 for the small version is to much 5 was definitely more manageable
Huawei manufactures of mid-range phones. It empowers them in such a way to cover a wide range of options. In conclusion, you are more advantaged, as well as quality and price, if you buy a phone Huawei, unless you buy produced by Samsung, Apple.
Looks beautiful! but bad performance. and I'm assuming it will have insane price!
and battery doesn't sound so good :|
Unfortunately, the P9 can compare, just used the S7 Samsung, because of that, use Kirin chipset. By far the winners are LG G5, HTC 10, till this moment, can't compare anyone.
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2016Bad news coming:Leica does'nt produce this types of lenses!Most probably they've helped optimi... moreBack in the days I had Nokia N95 with carl Zeiss glass and camera was hands down winner. Too much unsubstantial BS marketing these days. Big and legendary names are abused and promises only stay promises. Oh well they won't fool us
The true reason for not implementing a QHD screen in this phone is the GPU.Mali T880 MP4 just can't manage a QHD screen.That's the reason why samsung has put 12 cores in its T880 configuration.
user.atef, 07 Apr 2016if you go to huawei site they clearly stated "Leica dual lenses", don't spread false rumors
... moreTheir marketing will tell you anything they wanted to.But there is difference between Leica-branded and Leica produced lenses.I dont say its a bad lens per se,but is only designed by Laica,they dont produce such a small lenses with plastic elements!
And to be honest,the deal for cooperation between Huawai and Leica was struck barely a month ago.So i am very skeptical that Leica even design something for them,as R&D process for smarthphones takes a year.
We will wait and see,but my reasoning tells me not to expect too much.After all they were hyped the P8 camera in the very same way,and it end up as slightly better than average 13MP shooter with some utterly gimmicky features.
