About the Phone
With Huawei’s emphasis on luxury and exuberance through this release, one can expect to find an assortment of mind-blowing features and innovations that will truly set it apart from the rest of its contemporaries within the same price range, although there aren’t many. Below we have listed some of the pros and cons of the phone:
– The design is exceptional, top-notch in its bracket. It carries all the premium hallmarks and then some, meaning that it scores highly both in terms of aesthetic and ergonomical appeal.
– The phone’s camera, a Leica triple camera system, is probably the best one you could find amongst any smartphones out there.
– It’s lavish in terms of the features it offers overall. The 512 GB storage memory has been equipped as a first for any smartphone device. An in-screen fingerprint scanner and micro capsule cooling technology manage to lend the phone further ubiquity amongst the rest of its expensive contemporaries.
– There is no headphone jack. The phone follows the trend set by recent Apple releases by doing away with the headphone jack in a move to make users transition from handy wire-based headphones to bluetooth devices.
– The price in itself is such a sticking point for the phone. It is quite clearly a brilliant device. However, the axiomatic truth of the technological world means that it doesn’t take much time for a piece of technology to become obsolete. With that in mind, is it really worth splurging so much money on this device when it could more or less become the norm in the years to come?
– The chipset on this device is slightly dated even though for the specifications nerd, this phone has a lot of spectacular things going for it. This again points back to the fact that this is one of the most expensive smartphones in the world, so one would wonder if it’s worth the price quoted at all.
Very few phones in the world can really demand such an exorbitant cost, and usually one would expect some otherworldly piece of technology. It’s actually quite rare for any phone to be priced in and around the 1,500 euros mark, with only Apple XS being one of those few phones we know of from a commercial standpoint.
The phone has a Leica triple camera system and two fingerprint sensors. It’s available on the Porsche Design online store and comes with a slew of exclusive accessories. It is also equipped with two fingerprint sensors and its notch-free display.
With this release, Huawei have really attempted to indulge us in some top-notch technological luxury.
In terms of design, very few smartphones could really match up to the grandiose assortment that is this phone. It has an in-print fingerprint sensor, which is quite revolutionary in some respects and is one of few firsts that the offering brings to the table. It is sturdy and easy to hold, so ergonomically it definitely holds up to the bargain.
As one would expect from a phone of such massive billing, the display on this phone is quite stellar to look at with its 1440×2880 pixels and 538ppi. One could question the spontaneity and consistency of its display though, with it lacking a bit of dynamism and adaptability.
The phone, with its 6 GB RAM, packs quite the power. There’s some scepticism to be drawn towards its slightly outdated chipset, which affects the consistency of the phone’s performance. It also has heating issues, which one wouldn’t expect from a phone priced this high.
The phone is armed with a triple camera system, which pretty much blows everything else out of the water.
It packs a powerful 4000 mAh battery, so there’s not really too much lacking here.
While definitely boasting quite a few firsts in the phone world, the Mate Rs has still got way too many niggling flaws that bring into question its value. Nevertheless, Huawei have put out quite the beast.
