Although CES is not a popular destination for smartphones, Huawei has brought its flagship Mate 8 phablet to the show floor. The Mate 8 is a powerful phablet that, on paper, does all things right.
The display, a 6” full HD panel will be the biggest attraction of this phablet. Huawei promises an impressive 95% colour saturation and great contrast. The phone also packs an octa-core processor and a huge battery, with 2 days of battery life promised. With a fingerprint scanner, a 16 MP camera, expandable storage and with 20 band dual SIM card 4G support, the phone packs in pretty much all the specs in a high end flagship phone.
Huawei’s pricing is consistent with what the phone features, but is it a deal breaker? I do not think so. With competition like Huawei's very own Nexus 6P, this phone is going to be a slightly tough sell.
