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
