Huawei Mate 8

thanks to its highly ef­fec­tive op­ti­cal im­age sta­bi­lizer.

Con­sid­er­ing its status as a flag­ship de­vice, you really shouldn't be ex­pect­ing the Mate 8 to be fit­ted with any­thing else less than top­notch hard­ware com­po­nents, which in­clude Huawei's own flag­ship pro­ces­sor, the Kirin 950, a Mali-T880 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of in­ter­nal stor­age (ex­pand­able up to 128GB via mi­croSD us­ing the Mate 8's sec­ondary Nano-SIM card slot), and an enor­mous, 4,000mAh non-re­mov­able Li-poly bat­tery – one that Huawei said is able to power the Mate 8 for up to two con­sec­u­tive days be­fore need­ing a recharge.

It's a claim that we can most cer­tainly at­test to, as we were com­fort­ably able to use the Mate 8 as our daily de­vice for just slightly more than two days, be­fore fi­nally need­ing to hook it back up to its charger. It doesn't need to be out of com­mis­sion for long though, be­cause ac­cord­ing to our tests, its fast-charg­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties al­lowed it to be recharged from 10 to 100 per­cent in two hours and 10 min­utes.

Our suite of bench­marks didn't pose a threat to the Mate 8, as it man­aged to score a healthy 6,425 on PCMark's Work bench­mark, 89,369 on AnTuTu, 33,896 on Quad­rant, and was even able to run Epic Ci­tadel on Ul­tra High Qual­ity in its na­tive Full HD res­o­lu­tion with an av­er­age frame rate of 58.8 fps. It con­tin­ued to flaunt its graph­i­cal prow­ess over in 3DMark, where it scored 17,817 for the Ice Storm Un­lim­ited bench­mark, and maxed out the Ice Storm Ex­treme bench­mark. by
