ASPIRE S 13
Demonstrating the equilibrium between form and function, the Aspire S 13’s powerful components come together to strike a perfect balance in size, weight and performance. Slender and sophisticated, the Aspire S 13 has a truly innovative and attention-grabbing look with a thin 14,58 mm form factor and Nano-imprint exterior. Full HD display with wide-viewing angle IPS technology brings immersive experiences for both movies and presentations. It’s powered by a 6th Gen Intel Core i3 Processor, runs Windows 10 Home, has up to 4 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD storage and reversible USB Type-c with USB 3.1.
It’s that time of year again when the focus is on family time and sharing great memories… and what better way to do this than by welcoming another family into the mix: the Huawei P9 family. This range of devices has something to offer each member of the family, from the rather grown-up model in the P9 Plus to the younger sibling, the P9 Lite.
Although the P9 Plus is the fully fledged adult in the family, there are some really good features that the P9 and the P9 Lite share. Both have a stylish metal frame (although the P9 Lite is a little heavier and thicker) and the same size screen and spec at 5,2 inches and 1 080 x 1 920.
All three family members also come with the enhanced new fingerprint sensor – making access to your phone, banking and online purchases that much easier by using your fingerprint rather than a password to authorise.
Understandably, considering the lower price point, the P9 Lite doesn’t boast some of the bells and whistles that are features on its older sibling and parent.
The big brother and the P9 come with the highlight feature for this Huawei range and that’s the dual-lens technology. Designed in conjunction with Leica, the P9 is armed with the type of hardware that takes it to a whole new level of awesomeness when it comes to capturing those precious family moments.
Both the Huawei P9 and the P9 Plus have 12-megapixel camera sensors and an f2.2 aperture. This is coupled with powerful depth-sensing software and advanced in-camera editing features. The dual-lens technology means one shoots in RGB to produce a colour image, while the other shoots in monochrome. The software then puts the two together to create a single high-quality image. This is stateof-the-art technology and it’s quite clear that this Huawei family has reinvented smartphone photography.
The parent in the family is undoubtedly the P9 Plus. With similar features to the P9, the P9 Plus boasts a bigger screen with AMOLED display, more memory and battery, and a key feature – pressure-sensitive technology called Press Touch. While the Leica camera set-up remains the same, the selfie camera has a wider aperture and auto focus so you can expect better shots, especially in low-light.
At a higher price point than both the P9 and the P9 Lite, the P9 Plus is definitely all grown up but its features make it worthwhile.
No matter which device is the right fit for your family, each one was crafted to fit your hand, perfectly constructed from superior-grade glass, diamond-cut edges and an aluminium unibody with curves in all the right places. The added bonus is they come in the funkiest of colours, such as Haze Gold, Ceramic White and Titanium Grey.
