Huawei Mate 8 review: The big Huawei Mate 8 phone is a battery beast that costs too much


The 6-inch Huawei Mate 8's monster battery life is the shining feature in an otherwise pretty-good, but overpriced phone.

Huawei's Mate 8's battery life goes on and on, it snaps good photos and has a fast, accurate fingerprint sensor and a loud speakerphone.

This ginormous 6-inch phone is just too unwieldy for smaller hands. It has a dim screen and a low resolution compared with other phones.

The huge, metal Huawei Mate 8 has plenty of appeal and only minor drawbacks, but it's too expensive to sway fans of large-screen phones from the Nexus 6P or Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

Review: Huawei Mate 8 - it's big, thin and powerful


With slick looks and plenty of power, the big Huawei is ready to take the fight to Samsung, Sony, LG and Apple

Big inside and out, the Mate 8 is hard to fault

Huawei Mate 8 review: As compact as a 6in phone can get?


Can a 6-inch smartphone ever be practical? Whether you think it can or not, you'd have to admit Huawei's design engineers have done a stunning job with its new Mate 8, keeping the dimensions as small as possible.

In all, we like the Huawei Mate 8. It’s beautifully designed and, for a phone this size, a pleasure to use. The sluggish performance of past Huawei flagships has been banished, and the Mate 8's battery life is very good too.

Review: Huawei Mate 8 - great screen, not so great camera


The Mate 8 fine smartphone with an enormous screen and great battery life. Shame about the camera and the software.

It may not have a 6in screen, but I’d recommend sacrificing 0.3in and opting for the 5.7in Google Nexus 6P instead.

Really big screen!


I bought it from China and I have been using it for over 1 year. It's the phone with biggest screen I've ever had. I love big screens and I think it can replace an ipad mini if you plan to buy one. The camera is also great and the new updated system...

Great phone, all the features


I love this phone. Between Samsung and Huawei, pretty close but Huawei seem to be more switched on and allow more customisation. Cool features and great photos. Takes a bit of time to get the hang of but worth it. Nice clear screen and big! Battery...

Good phone with some negatives


lume button, then turn the phone off. During this process the screen comes on bright and is annoying doing it in a room where someone else is trying to sleep. Otherwise things work as expected on an Android system. Haven't got an equivalent to iphone...

Phone software lets it down


fers plenty of customisation (ignore reviewer comments suggesting it is difficult to adjust e.g. it even allows you to change the order of the soft keys at the bottom of the screen), The new Quick Charger is great providing much needed quick top ups...
