Today's mobile electronic gadgets run on batteries of one kind or another, and when they run out, you either have to swap the battery for a fresh one (if that's an option) or find an outlet to start the tedious process of recharging. Luckily, quick charging is a thing, and Chinese phone maker Huawei just took things to a whole new level. Huawei recently demonstrated a prototype smartphone battery that's capable of going from a fully drained state to nearly half-capacity with a mere five minutes of charging. In the demo, Huawei plugs the drained battery into a charger, which itself is connected... Read more...
One of the sharpest, classiest, most alluring Android Wear smartwatches yet has arrived, and it's manufactured by a company that many American consumers may not be familiar with. The Huawei Watch is just about as good as it gets for a smartwatch currently. The reason? It's a watch first, and a smartwatch second. For those clamoring for a timepiece that looks like a tried-and-true premium wristwatch, look no further. Huawei has made phones, tablets, and other gizmos for years, though it has had more success in Asia than in the U.S. Standing out in the U.S. marketplace is difficult. A company typically...

A new video casts doubt on the durability of Google's shiny flagship handset, the Nexus 6P, and even elicits a comparison to Jar Jar Binks from the video's creator. Is the phone actually so badly constructed that it actually warrants a Jar Jar Binks mention? That's debatable, depending on what you make of the testing methodology. The video was posted by YouTube user JerryRigsEverything, a self-proclaimed fix it guy who works on jeeps, motorcycles, cell phones, and pretty much everything (hence the name). In this instance, he got his hands on Google's Nexus 6P, built by Huawei, and ran a series... Read more...
Google is prepping a new flagship phone for pre-order sale, the Nexus 6P, and it looks every bit a top-end device. Naturally the only logical thing to do with a high-tech handset loaded to the brim with cutting edge components is tear into the sucker and get a close-up look at its guts. Ah, but save yourself the cost and stress and disassembling a $500 device, it's already been done.Fresh off a teardown analysis of the Surface Pro 4, the gutty geeks at iFixIt turned their attention from tablets to smartphones by prying open the Nexus 6P. The teardown actually represents a first for the website... Read more...
If you were one of the many people that eagerly preordered the new Nexus 6P flagship Android 6.0 Marshmallow smartphone, we have some bad news for you. It appears that Google and the manufacturer of the Nexus 6P, Huawei, have encountered a few snags with production and will have to delay some shipments. The Nexus 6P was originally slated to start shipping between October 27th and October 28th, but the unspecified delay has pushed shipments to the November 7th to November 14th timeframe.

For the first time ever, Huawei is China's largest smartphone player, having surged to the top spot to replace Xiaomi in the third quarter of 2015, according to data presented by market research firm Canalys. Huawei's ascension to the top was fueled by a staggering 81 percent year-on-year shipment growth. Meanwhile, Xiaomi saw its phone shipments slide 8 percent in the third quarter, according to The Wall Street Journal, which read the full report by Canalys (it hasn't yet been published). That caused Xiaomi to slip into second place in China's smartphone market, though Canalys hasn't disclosed... Read more...
Unlocked smartphones are attractive to customers who are looking for ways to avoid a long-term contract with a carrier, replace a broken phone, or travel overseas. If you’ve shopped for an unlocked phone, you’ll likely have come across a company called Huawei. Huawei ships phones worldwide, though they aren't very well known here in the United States. Huawei has been taking a different approach than most mobile phone manufacturers in the United States by focusing on affordable, unlocked smartphones and selling these phones directly to customers, rather than working through the wireless carriers....

Google is expected to have plenty of news to share with the public at it’s special event scheduled for September 29th. But perhaps the two most anticipated products that are set to be revealed next week are two new flagship Nexus smartphones: the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P. A leaked Amazon product page have given us the clearest look at the specs for the smaller of the two smartphones: the LG-produced Nexus 5X. The product page confirms a 5.2-inch 1080p display, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor (which is curiously paired with just 2GB of RAM). The entry-level Nexus 5X (LG-H791) only features...

Google is going to launch another a Nexus smartphone, and if the rumors and leaked information up to this point are true, both LG and Huawei will be involved. The former is rumored to be in charge of the 5.2-inch model, a supposed picture of which was posted online a week ago, while the latter is said to be making the 5.7-inch version. Some photos of Huawei's model have now also appeared online on a Chinese-language website. What stands out more than anything else in the pictures is the bulging camera, though it's not a circular bulge like LG's model. Instead, the device takes on a periscope-like... Read more...
It’s no secret that Huawei is developing one of two new Nexus smartphones for Google. LG Electronics is the other OEM tapped with developing a second smartphone that will result in a one-two punch for Google’s debut of the Android L operating system. Over the past few months, various details surrounding Huawei’s Nexus device have leaked, including word from Evan Blass that the device would feature a 5.7-inch QHD display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. That latter spec is becoming a bit more suspect considering that Qualcomm today said it products featuring the SoC wouldn’t ship until the... Read more...
There hasn't been a ton of growth in the mobile phone market over the last year -- just a 2 percent year-over-year bump to reach 435 million units in the second quarter of 2015, according to data provided by Strategy Analytics. But what's more interesting than the number of phones is the fierce battle for market share among vendors. It essentially boils down to a somewhat lopsided battle between Samsung and Apple for the top spot, with every other vendor jockeying for third place. As it stands, Samsung is still on top, though its phone shipments declined from 95.3 million units in the second quarter... Read more...

Huawei, a major mobile phone player in the China, is looking to give the competition a run for their money on U.S. soil. The easiest way to do that is by offering a well spec'd smartphone at a reasonable price, and most would agree that the company's new and unlocked P8 lite handset fits the bill. From the pictures we've seen, it's a nice looking phone, and at $250 outright, it's a fair bit cheaper than flagship handsets from the likes of Samsung, HTC, and Apple.The overall design looks like someone spliced the DNA of an iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and any modern Android handset. It's rectangular in shape... Read more...
