Huawei Mate 8: Great Phone with Long Standby Time [TESTING]

Big screen, fast processor and a long standby time. It sounds like a success, however, is the large size that comes with, a problem?
When I received the package on a Friday afternoon with my Huawei Mate 8, was the first that impressed me how delicious it was all wrapped up.
Everything from the outer box with gold lettering, to the small boxes inside with small logos that shows what they contain, is incredibly accomplished.
Secondly, that impressed me was how big Mate 8 really is. And it is great. So great that I for a moment contemplated if it was at all possible to have it in your pocket.

Large, but manageable

I got the phone out of the box and the first thing you see is how surprisingly easy it is to handle in relation to its size.

It has a good balance and is easy to keep on the pga. the curved back with the thin edges. Huawei has really managed to use the space on the front of the phone in the best possible way and there’s not much wasted space around the screen.
Designed with sumptuous unibody aluminium is hard to beat and not as smooth to hold on, as one might fear. I have yet to benefit, to be about to lose your phone. But you would still think it is too smooth, it follows that a cover in transparent plastic with in the package.
On the back of the camera and the beautiful back sitting also, to date, best fingerprint sensor I have tried.It is prompt and error reads, I have not seen yet. It took a little getting used to it sits on the back of the phone, but quickly became as natural as using other fingerprint sensors. It’s become a habit for me to put a finger on it, on his way out of his pocket, so the phone is locked up when I have it at eye level.

Sounds almost as good as it looks

At the bottom of the phone sits the speaker and it is good. It is not front facing, as mature shall prescribe, but the sound is really good, whether it’s YouTube videos or listening to music. Purists within the sound, will probably think, it leaves something to be desired.
At the top sits the jack and here is the sound impeccable. The supplied headset can I not say so much about. It simply does not fit to my ears and fell all the time out. I kept them in place with your fingers, the sound was not bad, but certainly not good. On the other hand, his favorite hearing steaks thrown in, changed it all and most types of music sounds good.
And now it is a phone, so sound during calls is of course important. I never had trouble hearing them I spoke with and they could hear me fine too. I was out in windy weather, complained a few pieces over much wind noise. Something I never, for example, has been plagued by on my previous Sony Z5 Compact.
 

Big screen, low resolution

When you come from a screen at 4.7 “Works 6” very great. But in the course of the small 2 weeks I have had the phone, I have been incredibly happy for it.
Instagram images has been a pleasure to look at the phone, typing emails on the go is easier than ever and the tablet will be more often lying on the shelf when it flexes and YouTube videos. Viewing angles are good and light sensor takes quickly an appropriate level for screen light.
The resolution of the screen does not live up to its competitors, but it does for my part No. Icons are well-sized and the text is readable. What in turn irritates my eye, is that black is rarely particularly black.

King of battery life

Large screen and fast processor rarely plays well with good battery life. But it has turned on with a Huawei 4000 mAh battery.
I have yet to benefit, running out of power and it is not because I have spared your phone in any way. It has been on all cylinders with GPS in the car, games like Asphalt and Real Racing 8 3 during the break, YouTube during cooking, music on the ride and lots of surf and mail in the course of the day. And I have not yet been under 40% at bedtime.
And should the incident be out and you forget to let up during the night, you just throw the phone in the supplied quick charger for half an hour, so you can cope with another day.
Longest time without charging I have seen was 2 days. And then there are still Huaweis battery saving features back, to make use of.

Huaweis response to Android

Emotion UI can be a bit of challenge, to start with, and one is tempted to add Google Now launcher on, from day one. But since this is, after all, was supposed to be a test, I kept myself in the skin and went Huawei road.
You will be taken by hand from the beginning and helped through the setup of your phone. Are you familiar with Android in advance, it seems all very straightforward, despite some slightly funny translations of and to.
The lack of app drawer, I never really came to be missing. To find out quickly by creating folders for different app ´ s and so it is not much different to navigate, than any other Android phone.
The phone is at times a bit too eager to warn about app ´ s using too much power. It makes good sense in relation to the good battery life, but can be disruptive in everyday life. Fortunately, this can be turned off.
What in turn is completely inoperable, Huawei Swype keyboard. It was replaced with Swiftkey keyboard in the space of a few hours.
All in all, I think, after you have become accustomed to the different look that Emotion UI seems fluid and manageable. One might have feared a heavy and clumsy UI, with all the changes to Huawei has created.

Camera with missing

Camera part has always been a bit of a dealbreaker for me. The camera in our phones are now the only thing we have and it should just work. And here meet Mate 8 almost all my desires. It takes good and detailed images. Even if it walks over and gets a little dark.
Camera app ´ a is fast and easy to use in auto-mode. Using professional mode, can there really nørdes through with manual settings. Front camera is also approved and takes fine the mandatory pictures along with dog and child.
The video portion works as well, but is certainly not in the same league as the images. There is a lack of details and it looks a bit washed out. And where is 4 k footage? It amazes me that such a powerful processor is not able to record in 4 k.

Great phone, but not for all

Huawei Mate 8 is an incredibly delicious phone. Nice designed in sumptuous materials and a sense of quality. The home brewed Kirin chipset gobbling up everything you throw after it, without reflection and the camera takes great pictures. Everything just works. Even Emotion UI becomes a pleasure, after a little getting used to.
So yes, I have been really pleased with my phablet, but … For there is a but. Phablet size is not for everyone.
Have we not so big hands is a hand operation difficult. In spite of a good design, it is a great phone to have in your pocket on running the trip, at work etc.
I have in the testing period, used it as I would any other phones. So it has been with the concert, out and mountain biking, fix have and jump in the trampoline with the son. It all can be done, but a smaller size had lightened it a bit.
I would, without flinching, recommend Mate 8 to others who are looking for phone in the phablet segment. You get a lot of phone for the money. For my part, is it just a number too large. But could easily see a Huawei phone in my future. Maybe a Huawei P9.
I give Huawei Mate 8 5 ½ stars out of 6.
