Huawei is once again redefining not just mobile photography, but the flagship smartphone itself, with the launch of the new Mate 20 Series – featuring a new design, a better processor, better optics, better battery life, among other new features. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro in particular, has received most of the spotlight, and rave ratings from many tech reviewers, thanks to the numerous innovations that it brings to the table. Today though, we’re taking a look at its less expensive brother, the Mate 20. Specifications Unboxing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBfdBdlTkNo&t=13s Design and Build Quality At around PhP10,000 cheaper than the Pro, one would think that perhaps the Mate 20 is the sweeter spot in its price range. After all, it also has a triple camera setup, and also runs on the same processor, the Kirin 980. But that’s where their similarities end. In terms of the display, the Mate 20 is noticeable…

These days, the flagship market is becoming accessible to more consumers, thanks to an effort from the numerous smartphone companies to create devices that offer an excellent mix of premium design, powerful hardware, and breakthrough features, all packed with a competitive price. Today, we’re doing a comparison of two such devices – The ASUS ZenFone 5z, and the Huawei Mate 20. Both devices offer top notch specs, and a ton of features that on paper, would make you go “oh, it can do that?.” Well, that’s the marketing part until you actually use them, right? ASUS ZenFone 5z At PhP29,995, the ZenFone 5z was formally launched along with the rest of the ZenFone 5 series, but was the last of the three to become available in the market (Pretty strange for a flagship right?). In any case, the fact is that it’s one of the few flagship phones that are…

Time flies so fast and the season of giving is already in the corner. The Huawei Y9 2019 is miles away from the 2018 version and the price released by Huawei on this device is definitely surprising. This is my review of the Huawei Y9 2019, your next mid-level smartphone. HUAWEI Y9 2019 SPECS 6.5-inch LCD display, 2,340 x 1,080 resolution (19.5:9) Octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor 4GB RAM 64GB expandable memory Dual 16- and 2-megapixel rear cameras with LED flash Dual 13- and 2-megapixel front cameras Face unlock Fingerprint sensor (rear-mounted) 4,000mAh battery EMUI 8.2 based on Android 8.1 Oreo BUILD The Huawei Y9 2019’s design is comparable from the Honor 8X, which has a smaller notch on the screen compared to other devices and a vertical orientation on the rear camera. We think that the only drawback of the Huawei Y9 2019 is its slippery handling but on…

The ever increasing demand of today’s on-the-go lifestyle has pushed smartphone companies to come up with solutions on how balance performance and efficiency in their devices. As such, Huawei has seen it fit to equip the new Mate 20 series with massive batteries, and SuperCharge technology, that gives 70% charge in just half an hour. Both are also touted as the fastest wireless charging devices in the market to date. Earlier today, Mr. Yang Chengjum, Huawei’s Charging and Battery Expert, gave a talk about the technology behind the Mate 20 series’ fast charging system. He explained that the company’s design concept focuses on four aspects – Speed, Capacity, Safety, and Compatibility. The massive upgrade to the Mate 20 series’ power cells are accompanied by nifty charging solutions – Huawei’s SuperCharge Technology, Wireless Quick Charge, and Reverse Charging. Huawei’s SuperCharge Technology has been upgraded to provide even faster charging times. Now,…

Prior to the launch of the Mate 20 series, Huawei made an earlier announcement regarding its newest processor, the Kirin 980, which promises a ton of improvements over its predecessor, which by the way, wasn’t a slouch in any way. Built for Performance and Efficiency The Kirin 980 is the world’s first mobile processor to be built on a 7nm chip; that’s 6.9 billion transistors in a less than 1 square centimeter. Versus its predecessor, it promises to improve single core performance by up to 75%, and is the first to use the Mali-G76 GPU, which offers up to 46% improvement in graphics performance. What good is a fast and capable processor if it eats up a ton of power, right? Huawei once again pushed the limits to make the Kirin 980 as efficient as it could be. In fact, it offers up to 58% improved overall power efficiency, which…

Huawei is once again aiming to raise the bar on mobile photography with its Mate 20 smartphones. The Mate 20 in particular, is now equipped with a triple camera system – composed of an RGB, Telephoto, and now, a wide-angle shooter. Allowing it to cater to various situations. It also sports a new design, and under the hood, the new Kirin 980 processor promises to deliver a notable improvement in raw performance over its predecessor, while also bringing improved AI features to the phone. Unboxing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBfdBdlTkNo Specifications Design and Build Quality Despite having a large 6.53-inch screen, the Mate 20 isn’t a chore to use with one hand. The back panel is a bit slippery though, so you might want to use the supplied clear case. The back panel is furnished with a glossy finish, which makes it a smudge magnet. The three rear cameras are arranged in a 2 x…

In its official Twitter account, Huawei recently posted a teaser of perhaps one of the many devices that it will introduce during its grand launch event on October 16. While no specific hardware particulars were mentioned, the teaser pointed out to what is seemingly a third variant of the Mate 20 that’s focused on gaming and performance,  as the hashtag says, it may be called the Mate 20X. The teaser showed two points. Cooler – which means that the upcoming device will either have a dedicated cooling module that boosts airflow, or it could have a cooling system that’s unique to it, allowing the device to sustain its performance through long hours of gaming. Next point, Longer Gaming – which means that the device may boast AI-powered battery management to prolong battery life, or just basically a larger than usual power pack. 5,000mAh? we’ll see. In any case, there’s just…

Ever wanted to take some beautiful night shots with your Huawei Nova 3? well, Huawei has recently rolled out an update to the device, which basically improves the Super Night Mode. Now, Super Night Mode lets you take a  long exposure shot without the need for a tripod! this gives you night photos which are way better than what you’d get from just doing a point and shoot, similar to what the P20 and P20 Pro can do. The Huawei Nova 3 houses dual cameras on both the front and the rear, 16MP + 20MP and 24MP + 2MP respectively.  It also boasts other features such as AI Scene Detection. The device also sports 6.3-inch FHD+ 19.5:9 display, and is powered by the Kirin 970 processor, along with 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. The Huawei Nova 3 currently retails for PhP25,990.

Ahead of its launch, a lot of information about the upcoming Huawei Mate 20 Pro has surfaced online. The latest one, an alleged promotional video which shows the device in its full glory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeJbHkrcIYE If anything, the video confirms much of what is generally known about the upcoming smartphone – a smaller water drop style notch, and three cameras at the back, arranged in a square section. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is expected to be powered by the new Kirin 980 processor with enhanced AI capabilities, along with 8GB of RAM, and a whopping 512GB of storage. Source

IDC report is finally out, and while it is important to note of the top mobile brands in terms of smartphone shipments, it is equally vital to look at what helped to make this happen. If you take a look at the chart that IDC posted last October 1, ultra low-end and low-end devices dominate the price band spectrum of the industry. A year later, you would notice a significant shift in the spectrum where ultra low-end decreased, while both low-end and mid-range increased. Now, why are more Filipinos able to buy mid-range smartphones this year than last year? To understand this, we had to ask an investments and economics expert, Migs Lopez of Critical Index. Migs shared with us that the changes we are seeing this year in the smartphone consumer landscape have something to do with Filipinos’ purchasing power, TRAIN law, and inflation. TRAIN Law Effect The Filipino…

Huawei’s new Kirin 980 is set to power the upcoming Mate devices. And with only some time before the launch, it’s quite interesting to find out what makes this new chip so special, and what innovations does it bring to the table. World’s First 7-nanometer (7nm) Mobile Processor The Kirin 980 is the world’s first Mobile CPU that’s built on the 7nm process. Huawei actually took 3 years to figure out a way of mass-producing it, given that each contain 6.9 billion transistors. As far as results are concerned, this new chip is 20% faster than the previous generation, and yet, is 40% more efficient. World’s First Cortex Based CPU The Kirin 980 has been fitted with the new Cortex A76 and Mali G76 processors – the first in the world. The A76 cores are able to bump up performance by 75% compared to the Kirin 970, which ensures that…

Testament to its prowess in Mobile Photography, Huawei’s current flagship, the P20 Pro still ranks first in DxOMark mobile. Since its launch in April, the unit has received raved reviews from numerous blogs and news outlets, highlighting its superb imaging capabilities. This is all thanks to its Leica Triple Camera system – an industry-first that utilizes a combination of a 40MP RGB sensor, a 20MP monochrome sensor, and a third 8MP telephoto sensor to capture images with stunning clarity and detail. It’s also capable of 3x Optical Zoom, 5x Hybrid Zoom, and AI Stabilization, which allows you to take stunning night shots even without a tripod!

The mid-range segment is perhaps the most saturated in the smartphone market. Just about every manufacturer is battling it out with phones that offer decent specs and more and more features at very competitive prices. Today, we’re taking a look at two such devices – the OPPO F9 and the Huawei Nova 3i. Both are fairly new to the market. Both have dual rear cameras, and are being marketed for their imaging prowess. Oh, and they’re priced pretty close too. The F9 at PhP17,990, and the Nova 3i at PhP15,990. Camera Both devices are equipped with dual rear cameras – a 16MP primary, and a 2MP secondary, the latter used for adding the depth of field effect to your photos. Both are also fitted with AI Scene Detection that enables the camera to optimize itself depending on your subject. Up front, the OPPO uses a single 25MP sensor, while the…

Huawei recently announced GPU Turbo and if it seems at first that the “turbo” designation means blazingly fast performance we can’t blame you. but, you’ll have to temper those expectations for now.   The touted new bump in performance did not show a considerable  boost in performance in the limited trial that was done. Still, Huawei is riding this tech development and is now upping the ante with “CPU Turbo” – which we’ll find in  the Kirin 970-powered Honor Note 10. Switching on  CPU Turbo is said to raise the clock speeds  and free up RAM. Like anything that needs some overclocking or boosting, it needs a way to keep temperatures to rise –  which is where “The Nine” – the Honor Note 10s featured cooling system. We all know that having a cooling system enables overclocking capabilities  but how about the power drain? Well, there’s a massive 5,000mAh battery which means power…

While Huawei is more known for its mid and high en d devices, the company also has its eyes set on covering the lower end of the spectrum, with phones like the Y6 (2018), aiming to bring the brand’s expertise in smartphone photography to a broader audience. The question is, have they succeeded in doing so? let’s find out in this full review. Design and Build Quality At first glance, the Y6 (2018) looks very similar to the Nova 2 Lite. Everything from the display, the body, the matte finish at the back, and the branding, it seems as if it’s a toned-down version of it. Thanks to its slim profile, the phone is quite easy to hold and operate with one hand. Up front, you get a 5.7-inch display with HD+ resolution, which is kind of expected for a device at this price point. As expected, the screen isn’t…
