Huawei Mate 8: Can It Beat The iPhone 6S Plus?

By  | 

Huawei had possibly made a lasting impression on every attendee at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), all thanks to its launch of the Mate 8. We don’t see why they should’t be impressed because it’s really one heck of a phablet; with the perfect balance of components under its hood.

The Mate 8 is home to the Kirin 950 with an octa-core offering of four Cortex A72 cores clocked at 2.3 GHz and four Cortex A53 cores at 1.8GHz, exactly as how the rumours have suggested. It’s with the new chipset and other improvements that have undeniably raised the bar high for Huawei and that just means they are ready to face competing devices in several aspects.

And let’s not forget about the 6-inch display that sports a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels with a 368ppi topped with Corning Gorilla Glass 4, making it quite the sturdy device. While it would look really bright and wonderful at first glance, the device may seem a little too difficult to be held with smaller hands. Also worthy to note, the pixel resolution of the Mate 8 may seem to be dimmer when videos are being streamed, or high-res photos are being viewed. Only then, you would be appreciating the more vibrant Nexus 6P or the iPhone 6S Plus.

Well, it has certainly gone far ahead of its game and set the standards pretty high this time around, and while there may be a few aspects that could diminish its quality, we think it’s still a phone worth competing with the iPhone 6S Plus. What about you?
