Test verdict: What you should know
Huawei, homework! The mate 8 is a strong challenge. The sleek metal dress is high-quality processed and cuts a good figure. The overblown 6-inch screen dissolves only in full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), the sharpness but sufficient. A smart move which has a positive effect on the enduring battery. With the Mercurial Kirin-950 processor, so comes the Phablet quickly not in sweat and also still has reserves for the future. Apart from smaller deductions at the camera, that convinced mate 8 all along the line.

A full-throttle strategy that 2016 seamlessly continues: With the mate 8 the Chinese mobile giant brings another premium-Smartphone on the market. In English it is Mate Eight nasty tongue twisters.

Video on the subject
Huawei gives full throttle, wants to set the establishment with XXL-Smartphone Mate 8 under pressure. Is it mate 8 competition for the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7? Huawei Mate 8 test: Phablet with power battery!
How to: to 6 inches can be space-saving building
This already starts with the matte black box: here there is no trace of colorful images or entire novels in XXL font. Understatement is called for instead. Letters permitted only in gold reveal the precious contents. The Chinese put on a particular style, use only the two great rivals. No wonder Huawei wants to create the connection but with a vengeance. By opening the mate 8 directly to the fore, occupies with its massive dimensions (15.7 cm high and about 8 cm wide) just the half box. First of all: A size comparison with the iPhone 6 S plus shows that Apple’s Smartphone is larger by 1 millimeter. Only the 6-inch full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) screen in the mate 8 itself, which constitutes the majority of smartphones, thanks to the narrow margins is still present. Read that right! Huawei abandoned the Quad HD display now in fashion (2560 x 1440 pixels) or a 4K-Panel (3840 x 2160), the Sony was the first manufacturer in the Xperia Z5 Premium installed. There arises the question of whether the resolution given the size of the screen is not too low. The resounding answer: no! The pixel density of 367 ppi completely sufficient, all fonts, app icons, represent sharp crisp photos and also videos. The display allows an excellent visibility thanks to IPS technology from all sides, the brilliance of the mate S is however lacking in it. Incomprehensible why Huawei not used a colorful and high-contrast AMOLED display like in the little brother of the mate. Also the pressure sensitive screen, Huaweis Press touch technique is reserved for the available recently in Germany special version of the mate S. This protects Gorilla glass 4 of also the mate 8 from scratches. In the duel in the radiant Sun, the bright screen (474 candela per square meter) of the mate 8 beats reputable, it very naturally represents individual colors with a color fidelity of 96.3 percent.
The noble brother in the test: Huawei Mate S
As a mate S, only bigger
The screen technology is one of the major differences between two devices, optical, the Chinese remain loyal to their new premium theme. The display glass slightly curved outwards (known also as 2,5D-Display) passes into the metal frame ground to. Margins of brushed metal and the high-quality aluminium back with integrated fingerprint sensor complete the high-quality look and feel. Design experts could interfere with a maximum on the colored plastic covers that ensures freshness of antennas on the top and bottom of. Although the Otto-normal-thumb whether large 6 inch distance from the other side of the display screen is located, the China Mobile is a weight of 185 g surprisingly well in the hand. For especially the compact design and the rounded back are responsible, where the small appliance depth (No 8 mm!) quiet wider is likely to be something.
Faster than the rest!
But we know that it is mainly on the inner values. There plays all moving forward with the Kirin 950, Huawei’s newest Smartphone with its charms. The new eight core processor from its own home consists of four cortex-A72 and cortex-A53 cores, with maximum of 2.3 and 1.8 GHz clock. Bare numbers that drove the benchmark tests by Our site of surprised faces: the mate of 8 in the Antutu test reach whole 90.641 points. Samsung Exynos-7420-chip, which is installed in the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge comes to around 70,000 points. Geekbench 3 1.706 points at individual cores and 6.162 in the multi core certified record! As a graphics unit, a Mali-T880 chip is used, the virtual HP monsters in the games performance hog asphalt 8 airborne liquid brings about the tracks.
Good technique, but more of it in China
Speaking of liquid: The tour of the new Android 6.0 interface was in the test at any time in the ground to a halt, the high performance reserves under the hood ensure a smooth and fast everyday users. Also the memory (RAM) who grew up in comparison to the predecessor is responsible. Still 2 gigabytes (GB), flopped in the Ascend Mate 7 the mate comes 8 to 3 GB RAM in Germany. While Huawei of the mate 8 in his home country of China with 4 GB of memory, the buyers have to settle in this country with less. What a pity! The internal space, there are regional differences. Instead of up to 128 GB, you need to be with 32 GB (equivalent to effectively 24,63 GB) content. After all, the compartment for microSD cards brings additional spaces that extend the mate 8 to up to 200 GB. As for Huawei now common, also a second SIM card can be inserted instead of the memory card.

Much battery for power
So there are sufficient energy reserves for the high performance, Huawei (mAh) mounted a strong, non-removable battery with 3,900 mAh in the quick charge function including Phablet. According to Huawei the new processor and the Android user interface slightly modified with EMUI 4.0 so co-ordinated be, that background applications take only half of the previous Akkuverbrauchs claim. Theoretical information that confirms the laboratory test of COMPUTER picture. Only after 16 hours and 38 minutes the Huawei’s flagship had to intense stress on the socket a remarkable achievement! Longer periods are possible, if you (temporarily) abandon hungry consumers such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi with ac standard, GPS and NFC. They’re 8 is also on board as fast LTE cat with the mate. 6 (300 Mbit / s). So, on good, time for low usage increases 50 hours. Values, where Apple and Samsung come in amazement. The mate 8 but barely missed the battery throne: only the liquid Z630 Acer is still ongoing.
Rear camera with weaknesses
The slightly protruding 16 mega pixel camera with optical image stabilizer and various photo modes is hiding on the back. So you can for example with the light games hold the tail lights of passing cars as glowing lines. Also the per camera mode already known by the mate of S is the XXL-Smartphone. Thus, ambitious mobile photographers adjust the ISO value, the shutter speed and also focus itself. Optical adjustments, the attractive photos in scene does not use more but also. With the reference Smartphones from Apple but not quite keep the lens (f/2.0) of the mate 8. The quick snapshots (0.14 seconds to raise and 0.3 seconds to save) suffer noise and visible blur in low light. The front camera captures self-portraits with 8 mega pixels, which is more than sufficient for sharp party photos with natural colors. Why Huawei otherwise waived as in the mate S a front LED Flash, remains a mystery.
Prices and availability of the mate 8
End of January 2016 is the Huawei Mate 8 to 599 euros to Germany. While other variants with larger memory (4 GB instead of 3 GB), in China more internal memory (64 GB or 128 GB instead of 32 GB) and in four different colors (gold, silver, grey and Brown), to settle for interested buyers in this country with the base model in silver and grey.
