how to solve the lag in docs in office?

review wrongly says microUSB is not chargeable. it is chargeable! just it also comes with own charge port.

so it charges well from high amp USB chargers. but you need 2A for it of course. charges also from pc, but slow of course because low amp, unless your controller is able provide high amp for charging devices. there are some USB3 controllers with such abilities on the market.


the only reason they added own charge port is to save usb port lifetime, to make sure it won't burn up early or later. but still, it does charge from high amp usb chargers.

Just to inform you that the USB DOES CHARGE but EXTREMELY SLOW. So if you are ever in need of a bit of juice, usb DOES CHARGE, just really really slow.

Huawei devices are already riding the high-end tide, so they better release their devices globally.

Huawei slowly getting to the upper league. They should start marketing their devices heavily to gain popularity.
