In our second installment of “Big Phones, Dual Cameras” we’re moving to the real showdown. Android vs Android. Big screen vs big screen. Huawei has been impressing lately, and LG now faces the Mate 9’s second generation Leica dual camera system. Which phone wins? You decide in our viewer poll!
One of the only true phablets of the year. The Huawei Mate 9 is a pretty special phone. BIG Screen. Second generation Leica dual camera, BIG battery. Is the performance as great as the expectations? Here’s our full review!
Pocketnow’s Real Audio Review gives you the full scoop on what our phones can do with headphone and speaker playback. The Huawei Mate 9 is a BIG phone, but does that mean we get BIG audio? Let’s take a listen!
It’s a sexy little smartwatch watch, and you’ll be able to score one for a much lower price on Black Friday!
There’s going to be a 24 hour sale on the Huawei Watch where the most expensive variant, the black steel body with black steel bracelet, will be $100 off on most major retailers like Amazon, BestBuy, Target, Google Play, and Huawei’s site.
That’s more than 20% off. Not bad at all for a premium wearable made out of steel and sapphire which already costs less than a watch band from Apple (Apple Watch Not Included).
We recently reviewed the Huawei Watch, and you can check out this Android Wearable below!
The much teased Huawei Watch is official! Announced at IFA, this circular displayed fashion piece will be joining the Android Wear ranks soon, with pre-orders shipping September 17th.
We also have confirmation on styles, and pricing. A classic stainless steel body with a black leather strap will start at $349, moving to a steel bracelet will bump up the price to $399. The Black Steel body and bracelet will cost $499, and the rose gold watch will cost $699 and $799 with Alligator leather strap and rose gold bracelet respectively.
The tech on board seems like ballpark Android Wear. A 1.4″ AMOLED screen with a 400×400 resolution should look nice and crisp. The Snapdragon 400 CPU is well known, and with current software is a snappy performer on other watches. Plus, we’re happy to see WiFi and 4GB of storage listed as features.
How this all pairs with the 300mah battery for run time will be interesting to test as Huawei claims “up to two days” of battery life.
It’s a good looking timepiece. You can read Huawei’s full announcement below!
The wearables market is expanding, and we’re seeing more competition from tech companies trying to create fashionable accessories.
Primary in the Android Wear ecosystem, circular displays are becoming equated with “premium”. Leading up to MWC this year, Huawei took the wraps off their smartwatch solution. Huawei Watch will sport a higher resolution display than the LG G Watch R or Moto 360, but to keep the device slim, will use a smaller 300mAh battery. The smart guts powered by a Qualcomm 400, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage.
