This year Huawei launched a new top-end smartphone, the Huawei P10, along with a larger brother in the P10 Plus. The phone debuted in a time where competitors like Samsung and LG had just launched flagships with larger, bezel-free displays. But rather than innovating in a similar fashion, Huawei opted for a more iterative approach that took the good parts of the P9 and attempted to improve them for 2017.
The Huawei Watch 2 comes in sport and classic variants, both powered by the latest Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, packing 768MB of RAM, 4 GB of local storage, and a load of sensors for various applications, including NFC, GPS, Bluetooth, and a heart rate monitor. And while the real usefulness of smartwatches is debatable, there is at the very least a niche market for them. The Watch 2 is getting mixed reactions: props for getting all the latest tech but design is bland compared to its predecessor.
Designed for those who prefer larger screens, the Huawei Mate 9 packs a 5.9-inch display alongside an upgraded dual camera solution and a faster SoC. There are few hardware compromises here; the Mate 9 is a showcase of what Huawei's engineering team can accomplish.
I’ve been an iPhone user for over six years now and up until recently I had only used Android for minutes at a time and never as my daily driver. But hearing how Google's smartphone platform had evolved so significantly since I first became an iPhone user, both in terms of software and hardware, I decided it was time to give it a try. Read on for my experiences thus far.
The Huawei P9 is a high-end flagship constructed with precision and quality while packing modern hardware in every corner. It isn’t just your typical collection of high-end specs. Huawei has attempted to think outside the box in some respects, packing in features like two 12-megapixel cameras on the rear, and a home-grown HiSilicon Kirin 955 SoC on the inside.
