Huawei mobile phone - Huawei Mate 8

Mobile Phone | The Mate 8 is one of nicest models of  large screen smartphone. Huawei has done an amazing job on the design of this phone, that’s an impressive feat of design engineering.

If you want a larger Android phone, The Mate 8 is one of the best choices.

The Mate 8 comes with a HiSilicon Kirin 950 system on a chip, (made by Huawei) that features a quad-core processor closed at 2.3GHz Cortex-A72 CPU, used for intensive tasks; and another quad-core processor at 1.8GHz Cortex-A53 for low-power jobs, and both do an admirable job of keeping the phone’s UI moving, and the 3GB of RAM included on this version of the phone.

Mobile Phone | Picks from the critics:

Huawei Mate 8
The Mate 8 is an excellent smartphone, in many ways. It has a big, high-quality screen and is well made. It isn't the most stylish of phones, but it's fast (unless you're talking about games) and has decent battery life. The camera is a disappointment in terms of limitations and outright quality - even with the latest software update. For £20 more, the Nexus 6P is a compelling alternative with a higher-resolution screen, a better camera and plain Android Marshmallow. Battery life isn't as good and there's no microSD slot, but these are sacrifices many will be happy to make. sayd pcadvisor

Huawei Mate 8 Mate 8 There's a lot to love the Huawei Mate 8 in terms of the design, generally, it’s been a pleasure to use. The sluggish performance of past Huawei flagships has been banished thanks to the shiny new Kirin 950 chipset, and battery life isn’t half bad either.

Couple that with a tempting SIM-free price of £429, and you have a smartphone that holds a good deal of appeal. If you're looking for that big-screen smartphone experience with few of the drawbacks, it should be on your shortlist.

There are, however, a couple of critical things that undermine its bid for smartphone greatness. First, the proprietary EMUI software, which, given the choice, I’d replace in an instant. The second is the slightly iffy camera, which produces soft images, despite impressive specifications. sayd alphr

Huawei Mate 8 Mate 8 Huawei's Mate 8 is one of the best larger phones you can buy right now and if you're looking at a phablet, but don't want anything all that expensive then this is a great choice.

It's a fantastic phone. In terms of price, it has managed to undercut heavy hitters like Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 and the iPhone 6S Plus. But it still offers a similar level of functionality to go alongside it.

There are some issues such as the Emotion UI software and the ugly speakers, but overall the Mate 8 is a good looking phone and it does run the latest in Android software.

I wish Huawei would embrace a less heavy handed overlay for its Mate series, but some people don't dislike it as much as me and will find it a lot easier to use.

The camera and battery life both proved huge highlights. The fact it offers a stronger life than the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a great sign. It doesn't feature the innovative edge screens, but it still looks great in the hand and feels premium every time you touch it.

If you go to the market for a cheaper phablet, you'd struggle to go wrong with the Huawei Mate 8. sayd techradar
