Huawei Mate 8 Review

Huawei Mate 8 Review

The Huawei Mate 8 (or NXT-L29 as it is also known) asks you to make a fundamental choice about what you are looking for in a phone. Or rather, it makes that decision for you by way of its generous form factor. The Mate 8 certainly puts the 'phab' in phablet - it's fast, features a beautiful display, and offers enough battery power to jumpstart your car - but along the way it also requires its users to accept some very specific compromises to how they use the device on a daily basis. It also charges a significant premium over its primary competitors both Apple and Android, despite not exactly matching its peers on the spec sheet.

Huawei’s rumored dual OS laptop may never see the light of day

Perhaps spurred by its recent good fortune in the smartphone market, Huawei is being rumored to be interested in entering the PC space, particularly laptops. But it won't settle for any old school laptop, of course. Those rumors make mention of a hybrid laptop, a.k.a 2-in-1 tablets, as well as of dual booting Windows 10 and Android. The idea is definitely nothing new and we've heard the story, even the promise, a long, long time ago. And chances are, just like those old stories, Huawei's tale might meet the same tragic end.

Xiaomi fails to reach 80M target, ships over 70M phones only

Xiaomi fails to reach 80M target, ships over 70M phones only

Xiaomi set up a very ambitious goal for itself in 2015. It would ship 80 million phones in that year, a big jump from 2014's 61 million. That, however, might have been too high a jump even for the wildly popular Chinese manufacturer. It only reported "over 70 million" devices shipped, which is still good considering the global smartphone market. That said, it does raise questions on whether Xiaomi's rising star has finally started to fall and whether it can still do its magic for the years to come and in other, more competitive markets.

Huawei announces Honor 5X, this time for the US

Now it's announcing something for the US but it isn't that high-end flagship. As earlier leaks hinted, it is indeed the Honor 5X that will be the forerunner of Huawei's Honor brand in the US. All is not lost, however, as the Honor 5X does sound, and especially look, like a formidable mid-range but classy contender in the very competitive US smartphone market.
