Huawei dropped the Ascend badge, but the Mate 8 has all the main advantages of the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 with several bonus upgrades. Released in November 2015, one year after its predecessor, the Mate 8 is classified in the Phablet category with its 6-inch IPS-NEO LCD screen, displaying at 1080x1920 pixels. It runs natively under Emotion UI 4.0, powered by Android 6.0 and is supported by a HiSilicon Kirin 950 8-core processor. This dual SIM smartphone is available in two versions depending on storage capacity: a 32 GB version with 3 GB of RAM, and a 64 GB version with 4 GB of RAM, these capacities can reach 256 GB using a micro SD memory card. The Mate 8 is equipped with a 16 megapixel photo sensor with an f/2.0 aperture capable of shooting videos at 1080p, and an 8-megapixel secondary camera. A fingerprint sensor is present on the back of the phone.
A high-end smartphone, bothered by a few physical constraints
From the Ascend Mate 7 that impressed the audience, Huawei kept what was good and eliminated many problems with this Mate 8. As for its design, the Mate 8 is made of plain metal, the back panel is soft and looks slippery, the large size and fairly substantial weight of the handset not making it easier to grip. If the camera is of very good quality, it sticks a little out of the body of the phone, even if it is necessary to examine all this more closely to notice it. One of the things that the Chinese company has corrected on this model is the lifespan of its battery, which far exceeds that of its competitors. Its screen that borders the edges of the handset offers a bright and accurate display, although the resolution is relatively low compared to competitors.
Provide yourself with a Noreve cover and all your worries will be settled
If these little concerns are not for you a problem, then all the other small defects of the Huawei Mate 8 should be settled just by equipping yourself with a Noreve protective cover. Indeed, these are specifically tailored and made of leather for maximum comfort for the phone and its user. This provides a better grip and also allows you to use and transport your device with total peace of mind, since the covers protect your phone perfectly and absorb shocks very well. In addition to their robustness and practicality, Noreve covers have an unparalleled elegance, thanks in particular to their impeccable finish quality.
Wrap your Mate 8 yourself at Noreve’s
As its customer full satisfaction is its main concern, Noreve offers them the opportunity to acquire fully customised protective covers. Whether you choose to protect your Huawei Mate 8 with a vertical flap cover, or one with a wallet-style horizontal flap, you can choose the colour and texture to suit your taste, both for the inner and outer coating. Noreve has therefore used its whole experience so that everyone can own a unique smartphone and mainly in their own image.
