Huawei joins the rank of elites with the new Mate 8.

Back in October 2015, Huawei’s first attempt at a Nexus phone for Google resulted in one of the best Android devices of 2015. Thus, it is no surprise its recently launched Mate 8 has managed to impress even the most devoted Apple and Samsung followers.

Huawei Mate 8 is a powerhouse device that delivers productivity at its best for those on-the-go business professionals. Also, thanks to its built-in support for various network bands, proud owners of the Mate 8 can now stay connected with any part of the world.

The latest model operates on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and offers speed as well as convenience, all beautifully packaged in one stunning design. Featuring a 6-inch display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4, the screen’s 95% colour saturation is higher than both the Mate 7 (71%) and iPhone 6 Plus (68%). Manufactured with aerospace grade aluminium, its well-received fingerprint recognition speed is twice as fast as the Mate 7, and the error rate has decreased by half.

It also integrates the world’s leading Cat6 LTE internet connection technology, offering download speeds of up to 300 Mbps. From web browsing to streaming media to connected gaming, users will enjoy high-speed internet connections.

Performance is driven by Huawei’s own octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor and has a protected firewall formed by the processor’s TrustZone as well as secure OS. Asides from that, the Mate 8 has strong chip-level security achieved by the hardware isolation between operating environment and storage space of the Android system.

Unlike the 2750 mAh battery of the Apple iPhone 6s Plus, the device houses a gigantic 4,000 mAh high-density battery, giving it an ultra-long battery life so you’re always connected. With only 30 minutes of charging, the Mate 8 has 37 percent of its battery life, which equates to a full day of regular usage.

An incredibly powerful smartphone, Huawei Mate 8 allows pro users to experience a world without boundaries.
