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…

Huawei has been on a roll with their new products, and with each one bearing excellent quality, innovative technology, and cutting edge design, it’s no wonder, the brand has been steadily increasing its consumer base in many regions. As proof of this feat, research firms IDC, Strategy Analytics and Canalys confirmed that Huawei has achieved rank 2 in the global smartphone market, and for the first time, surpassing another giant, Apple for an entire quarter. IDC IDC’s recent global quarterly monitoring report states that Huawei garnered a market share of 15.8%, surpassing Apple by 3.7% in a whole quarter for the first time. Huawei also continues to lead the Chinese smartphone market with a record-high market share of 27.0% in Q2 of 2018. In the first half of this quarter.The P20 and P20 Pro was in strong demand for the $600 to $800 price segment, which in turn, helped Huawei…

The successor to the very famous Huawei Nova 2i, the Nova 3i has been well-anticipated that the company actually sold 20,000 units during its launch last July 28. Come to think of it, it’s not that hard to see why consumers are loving this device, as it offers some nifty upgrades over its predecessor, apart from its premium design. The Nova 3i resembles a lot of the Huawei P20 Lite, thanks to its glossy finish, and how the branding is placed. I know – Smudge Magnet, but we can’t take away that the device looks more premium. One of the notable upgrades is the new Kirin 710 processor, which should offer improved performance and efficiency over the 2i’s Kirin 659. The Nova 3i has a 6.3-inch display with FHD+ resolution, and comes with 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. It also has dual cameras at the front and rear,…

We know you’ve been waiting for them, and now, they’re finally here. After weeks of teasing them on the company’s Facebook Page, Huawei has finally launched its newest dynamic duo for the Philippine market, and the newest stars of the Nova lineup – Meet the Nova 3 and Nova 3i! The Nova 3 is a device that sports an elegant and premium design combined with flagship-grade hardware. It has a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the bonnet is a Kirin 970 octa-core processor with AI capabilities, the same chip on the P20 and P20 Pro. It has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, expandable with a microSD card. For optics, the device has a 16MP RGB sensor coupled with a 24MP Monochrome sensor, minus the Leica branding. Up front is a combination of a 24MP and a 2MP camera, the latter used for…

Huawei Nova 2i is one of the best selling smartphones of Huawei in the Philippines to date. It is for this very reason that raised the interest of the company to launch its next iteration in the Philippines, the Nova 3i. While the Nova 3 exists with its minor kin, Nova 3i is both interesting and powerful in its own right. Positioned for the hip and millennial, all the features we managed to test for more than 2 weeks are confirmed to not alienate its intended market. This phone isn’t just for the stylish and people oozing with fashionist vibe; it is also for those who wish to treasure and enjoy life. Build Nova 3i is a product adorned with beauty and designed by people, filled with a desire to bedazzle. The Iris Purple variant we’ve got slightly borrows its looks from Huawei P20 Twilight. It looks definitely smexy, but it’s hard…

A leaked photo has recently surfaced, and reveals what seems to be the full specification of Huawei’s upcoming Nova devices. One of them is the Nova 3i, which has also been seen locally in Standees next to Huawei kiosks, with James Reid as its celebrity endorser. According to the leak, both the Nova 3 and 3i bear a lot of resemblance to the Huawei P20 Lite, thanks to the similarly shaped notch. The Nova 3 runs on a flagship Kirin 970 along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, while the 3i houses the new Kirin 710, and comes in either 4GB/6GB of RAM, and 64GB/128GB of storage. As for cameras, both have four. The Nova 3 houses 24MP + 16MP dual rear shooters, while the Nova 3i has 16MP + 2MP. Both have 24MP + 2MP sensors up front, the second is presumably for adding the depth effect.…

Huawei has posted a teaser of an upcoming device, presumably to be launched here in the Philippines. And while the teaser doesn’t reveal much about it, there was one important hint – It’s a Nova device with four cameras, judging by the four rounded object shown in one part of the teaser. Now, that makes sense, as Huawei has also recently been teasing the new Nova 3, and thanks to a TENAA listing, much of the device’s specs are already quite known even before its official unveiling on July 18. The Nova 3 bears a striking resemblance to the Huawei P20 Lite with its glossy rear panel and dual rear cameras. There’s also that notch upfront. It has a 6.3-inch display with FHD+ resolution, and runs on an octa-core CPU (possibly the Kirin 710), along with 6GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of storage. At the back of is…

While flipping the pages of a book I got during my recent trip to China, a bookmark that shows Huawei’s Mission and Vision fell off.  It says, “Bring digital to every person, home, and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world.” It dawned on me that all the innovations and successes Huawei have at the moment mirror the fulfillment of their mission and vision. Who is Huawei? Huawei is both a dreamer and a doer. Huawei has this quest to pave roads to a better future, and this is clearly identifiable to the brand they are carrying. They pioneer things, and they don’t just simply try to be a trailblazer for the heck of being called one; they pioneer things because they want to play a vital role in everyone’s future…. in everyone’s digital future. As simple as it sounds – “bring digital to every person” – Huawei has tremendously influenced…

I’ve been to China last week to visit Huawei’s Headquarters and their university. As someone who has been using their devices (from smartphone to routers) for more than 10 years, I was not entirely aware of how the company has tremendously grown until I got exclusive access to their offices and “campuses”. From my perspective, Huawei puts high regard on innovation, quality assurance, and customer centricity. With innovation as their foundation,  they have successfully made and launched devices that impressed consumers, including us. We witnessed how they prioritize quality with the equipment they use and the amount of time they devote to researching and testing the units before putting everything into production. More than anything else, innovation and quality assurance are just by-products of their focus on customer centricity. But what is customer centricity for Huawei? For Huawei, customer centricity is not just about bowing and scraping to customers, it means…

A recent news from TENAA just revealed the design of the upcoming Huawei Nova 3, with model name PAR-AL00. If you would look closely into it, it definitely resembles the Huawei P20 Lite. From its design, we can conclude that the screen should be with 19:9 aspect ratio, and uses a notch. Additionally, the upgrade for the processor is also expected, which might be the Kirin 710. According to rumors, the Huawei Nova 3 will come with 4GB/6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage. Based on the images provided by TENAA, it will also come with a dual camera setup with advanced AI features – a key selling point of the Kirin 710 chipset. The phone is due for release this coming July. Source

Did you know that Huawei is the world’s sixth-largest information technology company by revenue? Aside from that, the company is also known as one of the biggest smartphone manufacturers in the world. With their devices being produced in-house, Huawei can cut down their cost for their devices and can try to be on the same page with Qualcomm. The news we just had may be big, not just for smartphone companies but also to Qualcomm. No, we are not talking about the Kirin 980, we are talking about the Kirin 1020. The Kirin 1020 is the most powerful processor made by Huawei and according to our sources, it can surpass the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. It is also rumored to be twice as powerful as the Kirin 970. There are no specifics just yet, but we’ll most likely hear more about it once 5G networks are already established. Source (in Chinese)

The Huawei P20 and P20 Pro are premium devices which were made as durable as possible. Even so, they can only withstand so much, and there might be a time when they’d suffer from accidental damages – such as a broken LCD screen or back panel. But fear not, as Huawei has got you covered during these events. Yes, you’ve read that right. Huawei P20 and P20 users can now get a one-time LCD screen or back panel replacement within 3 months from the date of purchase. At what cost you ask? it’s FREE! This perk is part of Huawei’s Premium Service offerings to its loyal customers. To know more, you may download the HiCare App on your P20 or P20 Pro or contact your nearest Huawei Customer Care Center.

Why use AI? Just a couple of years ago, smartphone photography was just about who has the higher MP count (or at least that’s what most people think of), or whether a dual cam is better than a single cam, or who can take the better selfie. Now though, we’ve come to a point that smartphones are becoming even smarter in so many ways. AI or artificial intelligence is seen as the new trend and is already incorporated in some of today’s flagships, enabling the device to proactively learn from its user’s habits, and intelligently adapt. It can now also manage the phone’s resources without any external intervention. Now, it’s possible for the phone to automatically close applications that are eating up RAM or battery. It can also now proactively increase or decrease the ringtone volume depending on the environment, and many many more. So why use AI you ask?…

With the avalanche of smartphones that are coming out today, it’s always important for us, consumers, to know which ones are actually worth the hard-earned money we’re paying for them. What’s value to you? Our own definition would be: a phone that excels in one or two major things and performs satisfactorily with the rest. No device is perfect. There will always be compromises. So, as consumers, we need to find out which one has the least of that. Today, we’re pitting two of the most talked about flagships with each other – the Huawei P20 and the Samsung Galaxy S9. Each is relatively new to the market and boasts the highest of numbers that you’d see on paper. What’s even more interesting is that these two share a common factor: AI or Artificial Intelligence. For what it’s worth, we would have pitted Huawei P20 Pro against the Samsung Galaxy…
