Huawei has batteries charging 10x faster, 50% in 5 mins

In these days when smartphones flaunt octa-core processors of insane raw power, batteries have become the next most important and sought after spec. After all, the most powerful smartphone would be practically worthless if it lasted only half a day or so. Huawei, who also makes its own mobile processors, is well aware of that need. And now thanks to its Watt Lab research arm, it may have finally reached a solution, promising a lithium-ion battery that will leave even current quick charge batteries today in the dust.

Some Nexus 6P owners report spontaneously cracking “visors”

Could the honeymoon phase really be over so quickly? Is the Nexus 6P really starting to show its warts and imperfections which Google managed to so skillfully hide since it unveiled Huawei's pleasantly surprising champion? If you've been following the recent flood of successful and failed bend tests, that might seem to be the case. Here's another wrench to throw in. The smarpthone's camera glass, which has been nicknamed a "visor" because of its appearance, have been reported to be spontaneously cracking for some users for no immediately apparent reason.

Huawei’s new Kirin 950 gets an unbelievable 83,000 on AnTuTu

Huawei has just unveiled its new high-end processor, the Kirin 950, and it is already boasting quite a few firsts and bests. While some of those might not exactly be new to our ears, Huawei's Kirin chips aren't exactly as mainstream as, say, a Snapdragon, an Exynos, or even a MediaTek. If Huawei manages to deliver on all the promises of this chip without the expected side effects, it could very well have a formidable competitor that could further push the Chinese OEM into the international mobile market.

Nexus 6P destroyed, then accused of bend-test fail

A so-called "bend-test" has been performed on Google's Nexus 6P this week, but only after the device's structural integrity had been compromised. You'll find "JerryRigEverything" taking to the Nexus 6P with a set of metal picks of increasing hardness, gouging in to the front of the device. After essentially destroying the glass, he makes certain of its destruction by pressing said glass, breaking it in two. Then he does some "heat tests." These tests include literally taking a flame to the device to see how its display reacts. Only AFTER all of this - and a few scratches to the back of the device to see the scratch resistance of the metal, he does a "bend test."

Nexus 6P gets iFixit teardown, scores a painful 2 in repairability

Nexus 6P gets iFixit teardown, scores a painful 2 in repairability

Last week saw the repair experts at iFixit tear into the new Nexus 5X smartphone, giving it a mostly positive score when it comes to repairability, but now they've subjected the Nexus 6P to their teardown process as well. While the new Android flagship definitely has a premium feel thanks to its aluminum unibody, that build design makes the Nexus 6P difficult to disassemble, and in turn, repair. This unfortunately means the device received a score far below the Nexus 5X's 7 out of 10.

Huawei Watch Review

Huawei Watch Review

This device has been a long time coming - and anticipated by round-faced smartwatch hopefuls. This is Huawei's first fully round display-toting wearable device, and indeed one of the first smartwatches with a fully round panel to have been shown to the world, as well. The Huawei Watch is relatively affordable (especially compared to its biggest competitors) and looks generally unassuming or otherwise low-key in design. Is that enough to take on the likes of Apple and Motorola?

Nexus 6P Review

Past experience has told us not to expect a top-tier smartphone from the Huawei-made Nexus 6P sold by Google. It's been a surprise, as a result, to find a high quality hardware experience in this smartphone - one with a body and a camera just as well made as its software.

In the Nexus 6P, Google and Huawei have made a device to lust after.
