Android version and market relevance

In November 2015 Huawei company introduced its new smartphone Huawei Mate 8. This is a new model with support for two SIM cards, which is running on 6.0 Marshmallow and, according to the manufacturer, will be updated to a more recent version Android 7.0 Nougat.

If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 6.0 Marshmallow already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.

Screen, body and battery

The screen Huawei Mate 8 is made using the IPS-NEO LCD technology and has a diagonal 6 inches. Such a very large main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 7.9 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 4 000 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

In front of the screen there is a selfie-camera on the 8 MP. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment weak cameras. The main camera got 16 MP, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment very good cameras. You can buy this smartphone.

Processor and Internal Memory

Smartphone received 8-core processor Hisilicon Kirin 950. If you want to assess the speed of the smartphone and its performance, then do not forget to see how much RAM is installed in it. Huawei Mate 8 received 3 GB of RAM, and there is another version of this smartphone with 4 GB of RAM.

And there are options with built-in memory. You can choose 32 GB or 64 GB. Supported memory cards microSD up to 256 GB.

Price for Huawei Mate 8: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Huawei Mate 8 got into our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and began to be sold in November 2015 at a price of $540. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Huawei Mate 8 is a very smart smartphone with a huge screen and a cool main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery is of high capacity.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
