My dad dropped and broke his older Huawei Mate 2 so we bought this as a replacement. He LOVES it. I currently use an iPhoneSE and have been #teamiPhone my whole life, but even I was impressed to where I considered Huawei too. The screen/display quality is crystal clear and the camera is amazeballs like that of an Android (just an outsider's standpoint, don't shoot me on technicalities!). I'm surprisingly mesmerized every time I look from my phone to his, as his colors are so much more vivid. It's fast and reliable for the few functions he uses it for: internet, pictures, videos, and the Line app (family chatting). Voice quality on both ends during calls is clear and audible... no static, volume issues, or dropped calls (with all other factors aside). The mobile interface is intuitive and easy to use, similar to iPhone's user friendly setup (I don't get frustrated looking at it like how I do with my mom's Samsung S4 Active)
I believe the major selling point for him was that...
I just received this phone yesterday, and I am very impressed so far. This phone runs very smooth and it's fast. I know a lot of online reviews claimed that the screen is a weak point but I can attest that's a big lie. The Mate 8 screen is responsive and very bright on it's highest setting. The biggest winner for me is all the extras you can do with this phone. Some critics say the camera is so-so and that is definitely wrong. I switch phones on the regular and the Mate 8 camera is good if not great. I am not a selfie taker but imo this phone takes perfect selfies. The biggest go for me is gaming as I play Marvel Contest of Champions. The game runs very fast with no lag whatsoever. If you are looking for a phone that can do it all, the Mate 8 is your friend.
