Anonymous, 08 Apr 2016I love mine. I did not buy Android because I did not want to be stuck with old OS without update. The not update is done, the ammermetru, in the cave?
To say that this is a smart phone, it is a blasphemy. An example, rear camera phone, 1.2 F? It still uses in this century, so, from prehistoric times?

Also I have phone numbers of managers working in Fortune 500 companies. Obviously my needs are different from someone whose primary purpose to buy a phone is to watch youtube videos.
Value wise, iphone is far superior. Immediate updates, FDE out of the box, Hardware encryption. BYOD environment support unlike nothing else. FIPS certification. Worldwide warranty, True world phone. Customer support that is second to none. No lag. Reliable and robust. Curated app store. Among many others.
Even the finger print management system is far superior to your mate. Does it have a secure enclave to store prints?
Gorgeous phone. If I had not bought an iPhone 6S for Christmas, I would be buying one of these today. Classy, classic design. A real phone and not a glorified tablet.

Huawei phones have one of the most horrible software optimization and the camera quality of Mate 8 is just pathetic. The only good place for Mate 8 is in a trash can.

Does it even have hardware accelerated encryption? Oh wait, you just need a giant screen to paly games on. Enjoy.
Speakers look like and mixed bag. Sometimes I liked to chat via speaker and listen to music without headphones when I'm reading and book. But not sure about this. I'm not even sure if GSM arena is sure
"The only thing that puts us off is the old selfie camera."
Really? I think its price is the most putting off factor, but Apple fans don't like to mention that part, when they defend their brand. It's a balance between how much you pay, and what you get for your money - the value.
AnonD-246723, 08 Apr 2016Or you can get iphone 5s with 1/2 of the price .
If iphone really that smooth the upgrade in ... moreiPhone users don't care about specs because it works smoothly.
In reality, it works smoothly b/c the specs are very good.
Take away that A9Chip and the GPU and iOS will be laggy.
But Apple doesn't market the phone as having awesome specs; they just market it as
something you can't live without.
