- Reduced bezels.
- 5.9" high res screen in reduced size with 16:9 format.
- Kirin 970 in the top of high performers.
- Camera in the top 3 of this year.
- Keeping excellent battery life.
- Dual Sim option.
- Best fingerprint reader they have tested and in the best position of all flagship, in the front.
- Keeping 3.5 mm jack.
Probably from mate 9 it doesn't worth update, as it is from s7 edge to s8, but they do not have the emotion of seeing how a top product as mate 9 becomes even better in nate 10 and without removing any aspect of previous generation (which has happened with s8, note 8 with battery and fingerprint reader...)
[deleted post]Knock knock! In what age do u live man? Such an arrogant pathetic yet stupid. Why Huawei sales beat apple? Because people start to realize the quality of it for less dollar. I didnt say apple and samsung werent good, is just that for the same specs, features and quality people can get this beast. U just too arrogant to admit it.
What are the compatible LTE bands that this phone has? Will we be able to import it to the US and use it on GSM networks? I really want this phone and not the pro version
Good work Huawei! You brought out a wonderful product. I am just sceptical about the product range... It seems that you are adapting HTC strategy which proven to be a failure...
vrvly, 28 Oct 2017Seems like small sensor what is shame for such phone(same as missing camera button). But what ... moreSmall sensor yes, but it performs good and one of the best image quality daylight and maybe the best image quality for low lights. It was all about software tweaks.
When S8 come out, 'what an innovation!' So much hype. When mate 10 come out, near bezelless phone, world 1st cpu AI, new design, great bright camera over mate 9, then it says 'minor improvement over mate 9'. Wtf what about S7 to S8? Its about the same thing but story becomes differently when it comes to Huawei.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2017WOW, battery is dissapointing. Wasn't 970 supposed to be much more power efficient? Yet batter... morePoor battery really???? Do you even understand what you are talking about?? 87hr rating is a poor battery to you???! Get a life!
For a phone review website you sure don't have anyone knowledgable doing the review. Which would be fine if you solicited user feedback on what sorts of questions to address in the review, but you don't.
How many background processes does EMUI 8 allow before force closing them? Are notifications back on the lock screen? Is date of data use counting user adjustable or are they still removing that from AOSP?
Seems like small sensor what is shame for such phone(same as missing camera button). But what I miss the most is hdr+ like processing for color sensor.
Potato Cat, 28 Oct 2017Duh it is 'simulated' using algorithms and computing. Of course it won't look at good at a real DSLRRefocus' all in focus was better. Wonder why I cannot find any app like that. Was great.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2017LOL more fairytales. You can't get 10h unless you're just staring at it.Actually it is not , I have had 10+ hours screen on time on my S8+ , I actually thought the phone was broken because I did not believe it , so I took a note of subsequent days and weeks of my battery life , and it was legit .
Now some months down the track I have added apps and changed settings and my battery life has shrunk somewhat , but my average seems now to be 6 to 7 hours which is still quite good for my use .
I tested mine in performance mode I might add.
I'm convinced of two things
One is that diligent and common sense application of the phones settings without engaging economy modes can still give very good battery life .
The second thing is, I think Samsung's software has improved leaps and bounds , and this shows in the general running of the phone.
Video is not the sharpest, colors half way to 950XL, noiseless. Stills got nice colors, still far from sharp but 20mp mono samples got detail level of sony's xa line. Hope gsmarena brings color 20mp samples too. great work huawei.
