The Perfect Balance in Designof the Huawei Mate S

The Huawei Mate S is built with a completely metal design, ending with a gentle curve on the rear of the smartphone that fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. There's a perfect balance of form and function with the Huawei Mate S.

On the front of the smartphone lays the gorgeous Full HD (1080p) 5.5-inch AMOLED display under a 2.5D contoured glass screen with seamless borders; with its rounded sides, swiping will be much easier as your fingers meet the edges.The Mate S is also incredibly slim and lightweight, making it easy to pocket and also easy to handle in the palm of your hands.

Use The Force... Touch

The Huawei Mate S's touchscreen is revolutionary, bringing an all too familiar, yet revolutionary. The Force Touch Technology built in to the Huawei Mate S brings an all new touch experience to the Huawei Mate S. Force Touch Technology brings a smart pressure-sensitive screen to the Huawei Mate S, which allows for features such as pressing harder to zoom further, preview photographs and messages, and even play certain games with new layers of controls – you can even weigh objects by placing them on to the smartphone's screen!

The fingerprint scanner on the back has two functions: It's first function is of course to provide a safe and secured method of locking and unlocking your smartphone, making it truly yours and yours alone. The second function, on the other hand, is providing a new method of navigating the smartphone, allowing the user to answer calls, take photographs, browse pages, pulling down the notification bar – all this through the use of the fingerprint sensor.

Incredible Photographs in Your Hand

The Huawei Mate S's 13 megapixel camera is incredible. It pushes the boundaries of smartphone photography with its multiple lens design (it is protected with a sapphire camera lens that is resistant to scratches and also lets in more light) and features that bring an astounding number of professional level of features to capture great images everywhere.

The inclusion of a Professional Mode brings a whole new layer of features to the camera, allowing for more features and controls over the photographing experience such as shutter speed, exposure, and light saturation. All of these features will give you greater control, allowing you to choose what type of photographs you want to capture.
