Huawei Mate 8 review: Time-saver edition

10 March, 2016
The Huawei Mate 8 is the latest phablet by the Chinese phone manufacturer. It's a premium device all around and it surely doesn't come cheap. But for the price you pay for it, you are certainly treated to an excellent user experience and some of the best specs in the industry.

Is this good in gaming and browsing? That's only my preference. I don't give a damn regarding the camera itself. Thanks

Juz bought it on its 1st day of release in Singapore. Sweet and smooth. No lag yet despite installing all my favourite apps(abt 30) and running tons of program all at once. I think the camera works pretty great and more than what I expected. Unplugged from charger at 7am and battery life is now at 34%. After 12hrs+. Lots of gaming time. Abt 3hrs at least. Watch youtube videos and facebook n internet trolling for 2hrs. Make some calls, messagings and online shopping for another 2hr. Gps and bluetooth is turn on all the time. Oh starhub bundled a free Huawei Band BO which cost S$108 @ Lazada. My old Samsung Note 3 would be flat by 3pm latest. Its really a fantastic phone. No regrets.
