Average Rating:
69%



Description:

If the Huawei Mate S is not a premium smartphone, we do not know what is, as this 5.5-inch On-cell AMOLED (pressure-sensitive screen) Android lines up with 2015 flagship models from other major brands via its octa-core 64-bit CPU clocked at 2.2GHz + 1.5GHz, 13-megapixel sapphire-lens rear camera, as well as Fingerprint 2.0 and Knuckle 2.0 sensors...

What We Like:

  • Not many smartphones are rigged with a 3-microphone sound system
