Yesterday saw the lanuch of not three but two Huawei devices. We had been expecting the P8, P8 Max and the P8 Lite however only the P8 and P8 Max made it into the limelight. This is quite understandable as the two phones Huawei unveiled are quite easily two of the most exciting and extraordinary devices of the year.
First is the Huawei P8. This top end phone packs a HiSilicon Kirin 930 octa-core CPU that includes a cluster of four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2 GHz and another four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz. A GPU. The Kirin 930 SoC uses the Mali-T628MP4 GPU. Fronted by a 5.2″ screen with a Full HD 1080p resolution there is a second screen on the back, a built-in 4.3″ E-ink screen. The screen is always-on and can be used to read books or view notifications.
The P8 comes with a 2,600 mAh battery. Whilst the battery size might meet with some critics the P8 has an app power consumption firewall. The purpose of the firewall is to block all apps that have abnormal power usage. The company said the device should last an extra 2.3 days of standby time thanks to this feature. This will be an interesting feature to test and some may turn it off if it decides to block their Whatsapp. To facilitate things there is 3 GB of RAM and a choice of either 16 or 64 GB storage.
Huawei also let loose the P8max, which comes with a slightly more powerful processor, the Kirin 935. The GPU is clocked at 2.2 GHz, giving it a 10 percent boost in performance. This is to help with the larger 6.8″ screen, which also happens to be the largest Full HD display in the world. To power such a beast of a screen the P8max has a much larger 4,360 mAh battery. This translates to 2.23 days of normal usage and 1.4 days of heavy usage, according to Huawei, obviously taking into account the afore mentioned firewall addition.
Both P8′s feature a 13MP camera featuring OIS and a “DSLR-level” independent ISP from Altek, and it features 4-colour RGBW imaging for brighter images in high-contrast conditions, and far less noise in low-light situations. A lot of time has been spent by Huawei of late developing their camera technology and implementation. The P8′s OIS is should be twice as good as the iPhone 6′s brag Huawei.
One area Huawei seek to improve and one generally ignored by a great many manufacturers is the antenna. Huawei have put two antennas in the P8 to avoid any issues with signal blockage due to hand placement. The P8 intelligently switches the signal depending on where your hand is located. In an effort to keep you connected the P8 will switch networks depending on where you are — such as your living room or at work — and it also appears to intelligently switch to a 3G or 4G alongside a Wi-Fi+ feature that’s designed to automatically connect to the best available Wi-Fi network.
Whilst the majority of the P8′s sold will feature a single-SIM variant, there’s also a dual-SIM model that supports two 4G LTE SIMs. The P8 has two nano SIM slots, although one of the two can also handle a Micro SD card.
The Huawei P8 “Standard” with 16 GB of storage will arrive in Titanium Grey and Mystic Champagne and cost 499 euro, while the “Premium” model with 64 GB of storage will come in Carbon Black and Prestige Gold and cost 599 euro.
The Huawei P8max “Standard” with 32 GB of storage will cost 549 euro and arrive in Titanium Grey and Mystic Champagne, while the Premium model with 64 GB of storage will cost 649 euro and come in Titanium Grey and Prestige Gold.
There was little to no mention of the P8 Lite, however we hope this will roll out in a timely fashion saving the best to last. The P8 is easily a line that is worthy of your attention.

Archos are still pushing out phones and tablets to maintain their position as a respectable budget brand. The Archos 50 Diamond is their latest wallet friendly smartphone and this time they have gone for style above all else. Rather than push out another slab that is somewhat lost in the line up of the current generation Archos has been dipped into the fashion tank and a zesty yellow device with a modern jet black glass have been launched. Easily a head turner but does the Archos have what it takes to capture consumers with anything other than some striking looks?
