    Huawei Watch 2 Review

    Early last year I checked out the Huawei Watch. It was Huawei’s debut smartwatch, and the Chinese company went for style, using metal builds with colors like gold to try to create a smartwatch that would actually look good with a nice outfit. I wasn’t totally convinced. Part of that was because of Android Wear, […]

    Huawei P10 Review

    Huawei has completely turned their brand around in the last few years, going from a small time maker of budget Android handsets to one of the biggest makers of premium smartphones in the world. While their hardware has more or less caught up to the rest of the industry, it’s largely been Huawei’s focus on style […]

    The Huawei Watch 2 is Available in the United States Starting Today

    When Huawei unveiled their new flagship P10 smartphone at Mobile World Congress, they also showed off their latest smartwatch — the Huawei Watch 2. While the P10 is the usual slight upgrade, the Huawei Watch 2 represents a pretty big departure from the original, moving from something fashion-focused to a fitness-first wearable. Historically, Huawei hasn’t […]

    The Honor 8 is Getting Updated to Android Nougat and EMUI 5.0

    Usually we don’t make too big of a deal about Android updates, but today bears especially good news for Honor 8 owners. Huawei is now rolling out the excellent midrange phone‘s Android Nougat update. More importantly, that means the Honor 8 is getting Huawei’s updated EMUI 5.0 overlay, and as we’ve seen on newer phones […]

    Huawei Honor 6X Review

    CES 2017 was a good show for anyone looking for cheaper phones with solid performance and premium features. The two best options we saw were the ZTE Blade V8 Pro and the Honor 6X, from Huawei’s lower-cost sub-brand. Both featured dual-camera arrays on the rear, marking a first for midrange phones, while stuffing the spec […]

    Honor 6X Offers a Killer Smartphone Value for Under $250

    Last year, when Huawei announced their Honor 8 smartphone, we were expecting a follow-up to the more affordable Honor 5X from late 2015. Looks like they saved it for CES — Huawei has just announced the Honor 6X, a $250 smartphone that includes premium features like a dual-camera array on the back. Better yet, Huawei’s giving […]

    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 Introduces Nova Smartphones, Their New Mid-Range Line

    In recent years, Huawei had been making waves with their premium smartphones, including the Mate S, Mate 8, and P9. At IFA this year, they’ve pushed into midrange territory with their new Nova line, announcing the Nova and Nova Plus at their press conference today. While the two phones still suffer from Huawei’s usual issues — […]

    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 […]
