Pure W sensor results are great, but not enough for this colorful age. Again, would do better if they used r+g+b 3 sensors with same resolution, for that kind of processing. Not that its bad, its just not the best.

Never had a huawei, but i am thinking of switching from iphone 7 plus (previous phones in no particular order op3t, op5, edge7+,mi5). How is huawei/emui in terms of ram management, scrolling smoothness and overall performance?
S8+ does not have a bigger screen. Its just longer and usable area considering the on screen buttons is smaller. 18:9,5 aspect ratio with on screen buttons vs 16:9 with possibility to remove on screen buttons is actually no competition and only because of this i am leaning towards switching from iphone 7 plus, because i need that screen estate and with mate you actually do get an upgrade in screen size. With them 18:9/18:9.5 phones advertised screen sizes (6-6,2”) is just a gimmick and basically a cheat towards dumbass consumers who dont understand the aspect ratios, side bezels, on screen buttons, cropped/zoomed in videos to fit in and all other shit that is important to evaluate screen size and its actual usability.

- 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.

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?
