Larger Than Life Itself

The powerful 4000 mAh battery provides the Huawei Mate 8 with enough power to call, connect, play, watch, and stream without worry the entire day. In fact, some have even run this smartphone for days! Talk about sheer endurance that this Huawei Mate 8 shows.

What's Inside the Mate 8?

Aside from having a battery with such a high capacity, the Mate 8 also contains the powerful Kirin 950 chip with SmartPower technology. It is said to be efficient in power consumption too. SmartPower technology prevents the problem of battery drain that is prevalent among mobile phones these days.

On the inside, you get Android 6.0 upgradable to 7.0 (Nougat). You also get 32/64GB storage with 3/4GB RAM choices to upgrade significantly. External storage goes up to 256GB with a microSD card.

Clear & Captivating Pictures

Another thing that people look for when buying smartphones is certainly the camera. As for Huawei Mate 8, its camera is its one of the biggest selling points. Featuring the powerful 16MP rear camera, it will not disappoint thanks to the clarity and precision of the lens in automatic focusing.

Literally, you can really afford to point and shoot without worrying about taking bad pictures. Talking about perfect selfies, its 5MP front camera also does not disappoint as you can take amazing selfies and direct upload to your favorite social media avenues - Instagram, Facebook and others. The Mate 8 relies on its Optical Image Stabilization and Image Sensor Processor to make every image vivid.


The Huawei Mate 8's design is visually pleasing. A combination of angular and curvy body adds to its attractiveness.
