Huawei Mate 8 64GB Review
- Large 6 inch Full HD screen
- Long battery life
- Fast and accurate fingerprint sensor
- Very impressive camera
With features such as an exceptional build quality, incredible battery life, the highly responsive fingerprint sensor and the above average performance, the Huawei Mate 8 seems set to become one of the top contenders in the phablet category. This phone comes in two versions: one with 32GB of internal memory, and another with 64GB internal memory. Both these capacities are large enough for the average user, but if you need more you can use the included microSD card slot to expand the storage capacity by up to 256GB. However, if you use this slot for storage, you will not be able to use two SIM cards because the same slot is where the secondary SIM card goes.
What is the screen resolution ?
When it comes to display, the Huawei Mate 8 is a bit of a disappointment primarily because of the slightly lower brightness level compared to its top competitors like the Nexus 6P or the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. You will get a 6 inch IPS-NEO LCD touchscreen with multi-touch capabilities. This phone has a Full HD screen resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels which delivers decent quality, but again this is lower than what you get from the peers. The Nexus 6P for example has a 2560 by 1440 screen. However, this doesn’t mean that the screen quality is mediocre. With a pixel density of approximately 368 pixels per inch, it is still better than what you would get from most phones. The only problem will arise when you try to use the phone in very bright places.
What is the battery life ?
This is one of the areas where the Huawei Mate 8 really thrives. It has a 4,000 mAh non-removable lithium polymer battery that does an extremely good job powering the device. This is one area where is squarely beats all the close competitors. Yes, including the Nexus 6P and the Note 5. This battery also has fast charging capabilities, which means that you can get it to fully charge from 0% in just two and a half hours. If you don’t have all that time available, you’ll find solace on the fact that it will get to 70% from 0% in just one hour.
How long does its battery last?
This incredible battery is able to give you about 29 hours of 3G voice calls and 12 hours and 30 minutes of non-stop video playback. With a standby battery rating of 528 hours, you can be sure that this battery will not disappoint you in any way.
What is the sound and video quality ?
When it comes to sound, the Huawei Mate 8 delivers reasonably loud and clear audio from the built-in speaker phone. Unfortunately, when it comes to video recording, you’ll not be able to record 4k videos. You will however still be able to get decent video quality from the 16MP primary camera that can record 1080p videos at 60 frames per second. The secondary camera comes with an 8MP lens which also delivers decent images.
Conclusion: Should I buy it?
The Huawei Mate 8 is the ideal phone for the people who want a phablet with a good camera and good battery life. It’s a bit pricey, but the features that it comes with make it an easy compromise to make.
