    Huawei Mate 9 Review

    We’ve reviewed a whole lot of phones this year, but very quietly, one of our favorites has remained a device that came out early in the year. The Huawei Mate 8 wasn’t perfect — Huawei’s EMUI overlay had a lot of problems and the graphics performance was lackluster — but as a pure productivity device, it was nearly […]

    Huawei Fit Review

    The relatively young wearable market is already showing signs of slowdown. Sales are down 50 percent year over year, while current-era smartwatch pioneer Pebble was stripped down and sold off for parts in the face of mounting debt and declining sales. For fitness trackers and smartwatches (and there’s a lot of overlap), it’s becoming increasingly […]

    Huawei MediaPad M3 8.4-inch Tablet Now Available in the United States

    We’re used to not seeing Huawei’s products come stateside, but that’s been changing this year. Their jumbo-sized Mate 9 smartphone will get a United States release, and, as promised, their new tablet has also gotten a release here. Last week, Huawei started selling their MediaPad M3 8.4″ tablet, a pretty good entertainment device thanks to […]

    Huawei Nova Plus Review

    At IFA in September, Huawei announced a pair of new mid-range smartphones, introducing their Nova line. But, the Nova Plus and the Nova only seem to share a name — Huawei used different designs for the two phones, on top of making one bigger than the other. While the Nova looks more like Huawei’s Nexus 6P, […]

    Huawei Nova Review – It’s the Mini Nexus 6P

    Announced alongside the larger Nova Plus at IFA 2016, the Huawei Nova bears an uncanny resemblance to the Nexus 6P. That shouldn’t come a much of a surprise considering Huawei actually manufactures the 6P for Google. With its similar diamond cut edges and aluminum body, the Nova is essentially a smaller version of the 6P […]

    Huawei Honor 8 Review – Yet Another Great Mid-range Phone

    Huawei generally keeps their Huawei-branded phones out of the United States — no P9 or Mate phones for us. What we do get are their Nexus devices and the phones sold under their Honor brand. Huawei’s Honor phones tend to be priced as midrange devices, but generally feature aesthetically pleasing design and upper-tier smartphone camera tech. […]

    Huawei Launches the Affordable Premium Honor 8 Smartphone in the United States (Hands-On)

    While Huawei goes back a ways as an electronics manufacturer in China, their self-professed millennial-focused Honor brand was only created in 2013. While the company usually doesn’t bring their Huawei-branded phones to the United States, they have decided to launch Honor devices here, including the 5X. Last night in San Francisco, the company announced their latest […]

    Huawei MateBook Review

    When Huawei first announced the MateBook back at MWC, it took us by surprise. Huawei has risen to become the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, but no one was expecting them to announce that they are going to start making PCs, too. Huawei is finally releasing the hybrid MateBook in the U.S., but […]

    Huawei Jumps Into the 2-in-1 Race With the MateBook

    Now that they’ve made a name for themselves in phones, Huawei is looking to carve out a piece of other markets.

    Huawei Mate 8 Review

    Huawei has made a huge push into the premium smartphone market in recent years, with the Mate S going a long way toward helping the company shed their budget image. But, last year, their in-house chipsets still weren’t matching up with the high prices of their best devices, preventing them from being good value choices […]

    Huawei Watch Review

    The Huawei Watch was part of a huge push from Android smartphone manufacturers in 2015 to refine the Android-friendly smartwatch. Unlike many other watches from the past year, which were second generation efforts, the Huawei Watch is Huawei’s first smartwatch. Like similar devices from Asus, LG, and many others, the Huawei Watch runs on Android […]
