These are Huawei Mate 8 best features that end users might not know existed brought to you by you Sydney CBD Repair Centre Team.
TOP NOTCH CAMERA PERFORMANCE
The camera on the Mate 8 is particularly impressive. On paper it has a 16MP sensor, a slight upgrade to the 13MP sensor on the Ascend Mate 7. In practice, that makes a big difference, and I’ve found results much better on the newer phone.
Shooting with the Mate 8 is reasonably simple. You can just take the phone out of the box, turn it on and get a great image without having to fiddle around in the settings. The auto-photo mode is good in itself and I got acceptable results by just pointing and shooting the phone.
Performance was particularly impressive on the Mate 8. There were no app crashes during my time with the phone, and gameplay was smooth even when playing a graphically intense game like Asphalt 8, which caused other phones (including the Ascend Mate 7) to stutter.
That 6-inch screen demands a lot of power, so Huawei has packed in a big 4,000mAh battery to keep it going. That’s slightly down on the 4,100mAh battery included in the Huawei Ascend Mate 7, but it’s offering the same kind of life, if not better.
While doing everyday tasks, the phone would get down to about 20% at the end of the day. I had one day of really putting the phone through its paces by watching a lot of video and using Google Maps heavily, but it still made it to the end of the day with 10% or so left over.
Huawei has also included a fast-charging feature on the Mate 8, but our sample didn’t come with a charger so it wasn’t possible to test. Huawei claims it will charge from zero to 37% in 30 minutes with the fast charger but we can’t confirm that just yet. It seems Huawei isn’t including the fast charger as standard, which is disappointing.
BEST MOVIE EXPERIENCE ON THE GO
The highlight of watching video on the Mate 8 is the display on the front. It’s the perfect size for watching films on the go when taking a tablet is too much for the journey.
Huawei has its own Videos app: a simple player for the stuff you’ve taken with the phones camera which can also play movies if you need it to. If you want anything more impressive you’ll have to go into the Google Play Store and download another player app like VLC.
