Huawei needs to develop a new flagship name. Sell Mate10 between Iphone7 and Iphone 8 price tag (in the middle) and develop a top tech cell with a distinctibe bold design.

If you consider how many phones they come out with throughout the year compared to Apple I'm not really amazed. Apple with best Huawei when their new phones come out.

The S8 is the 5th best selling phone on that graph in a sea of phones that means it IS selling well in this market (before you reply yes not as well as the iPhone but that still doesn't mean its not selling well). Why do you struggle so much with this?

Huawei gaining sales=Samsung losing.

It already happened in my country, huawei became number one and S8 been big flop while people here buy much cheaper huawei phones over S8, iPhone sales been steady since launch so not affecting iPhone sales.

But when it comes to update wise, Huawei overtakes Meizu to become world's second lamest smartphone company. Tell me what's the current security patch for Mate 9?

I have a cheap Huawei phone since 2 years, and I can sincerely say I'm pleased with overall performance and durability. Good camera for the price, dropped the phone many times didn't get scratched or damaged (just a little). I like Huawei very much, and I'm glad it got the second spot on global markrt
