THE HUAWEI MATE 8 is a helluva big phone. The 6in Full HD smartphone has its sights set firmly on the iPhone 6S Plus and Galaxy S6 Edge+ handsets, and hopes to appeal to those in the market for a slightly cheaper phablet with its £429 price tag.
As we pointed out in our full Huawei Mate 8 review, the handset let us down on the software side, but excels when it comes to battery life with a 4,000mAh cell that offers two full days of use. You'll also find a premium metal design, a dual 16MP and 8MP camera set-up, and plenty of power thanks to Huawei's own octa-core Kirin 950 chip. µ
