The 5 best and 5 worst things about Huawei Smartphones

There was a time, not too long ago, when Huawei almost took over the smartphone world. Bagging marketing contracts with big Hollywood names like Henry Cavill, Scarlett Johansson, and Gal Godot, the company seemed poised to be the next big thing in the global market for mobile phones. When it managed to surpass Apple in global sales numbers back in 2019, its victory against Samsung to become the top-selling smartphone provider in the world was almost assured.

The Real Reason America Banned Huawei Phones

Huawei's revenue took a 29% hit in 2021 (via The Wall Street Journal), with the company blaming U.S. sanctions for its woes. Once the world's number one smartphone maker, the company has been reeling as a result of bans from the US and its allies. As recently as July 2020, Huawei was the top smartphone maker in the world, according to CNBC. Even then, however, most analysts knew it could not sustain that position, as sanctions were already taking their toll.

Huawei P50 Pocket vs Galaxy Z Flip 3: Clamshell Showdown

Just when we thought we'd have to wait for 2022 to see the next batch of foldables, OPPO and Huawei proved us wrong.

It's almost too easy to consider it a Galaxy Z Flip 3 wannabe, but there are definitely a few key things that give it a leg up against Samsung's best-selling foldable.

Huawei Watch D revealed with elusive blood pressure feature

Huawei Watch D revealed with elusive blood pressure feature

With smartwatches becoming mini health clinics, it was really only a matter of time before the most elusive feature finally got implemented. While detecting irregular heart rhythm is definitely a lifesaver, high blood pressure is usually a greater concern for more people. That, unfortunately, has proven to be more difficult to measure with smartwatches, but Huawei's latest smartwatch is now officially claiming to have that problem solved where its bigger rivals have so far failed.

Huawei Watch D blood pressure trick isn’t going to be easy

Huawei Watch D blood pressure trick isn’t going to be easy

Rather than being smartphones, smartwatches have taken on an almost completely different identity from their mobile counterparts. Thanks to Apple's push, these wearables have incorporated hardware and features that are more geared towards fitness and health, particularly in keeping track of various body signals and metrics. One thing that has escaped smartwatch makers' grasp so far is measuring blood pressure, but even the likes of Fitbit are already trying to work on a cuff-less solution. Huawei might actually beat them to the punch, but its blood pressure measuring system won't exactly be as convenient as many might have imagined.

Huawei P50 Pocket foldable revealed with massive clamshell design

It's still a week away, but Huawei has already been dropping hints about its next foldable phone, and it doesn't seem too concerned about subtlety. The company pretty much already confirmed the Pocket will be a foldable phone with a clamshell design, one that will likely take on Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip and the Motorola Razr. Unlike those two latter models, however, it seems Huawei isn't too concerned about the P50 Pocket's size and, as a result, the model may look like a P50 folded in half.

Huawei P50 Pocket teaser confirms foldable clamshell design

OPPO just announced its own take on foldable phone design, and while it's late to the party, the OPPO Find N does seem to have something new to bring to the market. Huawei, on the other hand, has been playing this game for two years now, and it has yet to show something new. That may change with its upcoming "winter flagship," but the device may not be everything foldable phones fans hope for.

Huawei’s next smartwatch leak seems too good to be true

Huawei’s next smartwatch leak seems too good to be true

Although it took a while, smartwatches are finally becoming more advanced and are finding their true calling. While the basic hardware specs remain mostly the same, these wearables have started sporting more and more sensors related to health. Going beyond the usual activity tracking and heart rate monitoring, some smartwatches have incorporated features like SpO2 and ECG measuring for blood oxygen levels and heart rhythm, respectively. There is, however, one biometric that has eluded smartwatch makers so far, and Huawei might be the one that calls dibs on putting a true blood pressure monitor in its next wearable.

Huawei Mate V foldable clamshell imminent release tipped with unique feature

Samsung has been reporting positive figures for its foldable phones this year, but it isn't the more talented Galaxy Z Fold 3 that's taking the lion's share. Thanks to its more affordable price tag and more practical form, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is reportedly Samsung's bestseller, pushing the company to allocate a large portion of its production pipeline next year to the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Huawei might be eying a part of the pie with its rumored Mate V, and this foldable flip phone could arrive this month and boast of an innovation no other phone has.

Realme GT 2 Pro render brings the Nexus 6P back from the dead

There was a lot of discussion about the Pixel 6's unorthodox design, and, as expected, opinions were split on the matter. Some definitely loved its quirky and memorable appearance, while others balked at the almost asymmetric design. It wasn't the first Google phone to have a wide camera bump jutting out of its back, however, and there have been some comparisons made with the Nexus 6P made by Huawei for Google in 2015. It seems that OPPO spinoff Realme is trying to revive that equally awkward design if this leak about its next GT-branded phone is any indication.
