Huawei Honor 5X Review: Great Hardware Hampered By iOS Rip-Off UI

The Huawei Honor 5X is perfectly fine, but its mostly metal design makes this $200 chunk of phone passable as something much nicer than it really is. Once you get beyond the hardware illusion, you’re left with a major software identity crisis. On the Honor 5X, that crisis is called Emotion UI (EMUI), Huawei’s own customized version of Android. If stock Android and iOS are like two fully-grown adults, then EMUI is a pimply, awkward teenager.

Huawei unveils new quick charge tech that can charge a smartphone to 50% in five minutes

Huawei Quick Charge

Batteries remain the biggest issue holding smartphone technology back from progressing at a much faster pace. Most users have come to terms with the current state of smartphone batteries, and they make a choice when they buy a new phone: Either purchase a nice slim phone like the iPhone 6s and charge it twice a day, or buy a giant phablet that's impossible to use comfortably with one hand.

While it may be quite some time before battery longevity sees a significant boost, Huawei just announced remarkable progress where quick charge technology is concerned, which could ultimately be a game-changer once it's ready for use in commercial products.

Nexus 6P Review: This Is The Android Device That You’ve Been Waiting For

6p 7 New phones are exciting. They look new, feel new, have new things and everyone loves new. I’m personally starting to feel phone fatigue, though. I love new technology, but I feel like the incremental updates that come along for Android phones and Apple phones are starting to get overwhelming. It used to be the case that only device aficionados would pick up the “S” version… Read More

Android Wear Device Supports iOS, Per This Pre-Order Page

Screen Shot 2015-08-28 at 11.31.10 AM Apple Watch not for you? The Amazon preorder page for the Huawei Watch states that the device will support iOS. Now, at this point, it’s unclear if this is a typo or unreleased information — let’s hope it’s the latter. So far iPhone owners have had a limited amount of smartwatches to choose from, say just the Apple Watch and Pebble devices. Likewise, there are dozens… Read More

Gartner: Worldwide iPhone sales grew 36% YOY, while Samsung sales fell 5.3%

gartner

New data from Gartner suggests that iPhone sales grew 36% year-on-year, while Samsung’s sales fell 5.3% in the same period. Apple’s market share climbed from 12.2% in Q2 2014 to 14.6% in the same quarter this year. Other winners were Chinese brands Huawei and Xiaomi.

Gartner said that while overall smartphone growth was sluggish, Apple continued to dominate the premium end of the market, with other vendors struggling to compete.

Apple’s double-digit growth in the high-end segment continued to negatively impact its rivals’ premium phone sales and profit margins. Many vendors had to realign their portfolios to remain competitive in the midrange and low-end smartphone segments. This realignment resulted in price wars and discounting to clear up inventory for new devices planned for the second half of 2015 … 

The company said that Apple performed well in both emerging and mature markets, with growing its business in China by 68% despite total smartphone revenue in the country falling by 4%. Research director Anshul Gupta (via TechCrunch) said that Apple was the brand Chinese consumers wanted to own.

[Apple is] a big brand and people really associate that with their status and it’s kind of an aspirational brand so many of the consumers in China expect to own an iPhone at some point of time. To some extent it has affected replacement sales for Android phones because Android users are holding onto their phones for a little longer in the hope of buying an iPhone.

Apple recently reported that its total revenue for the quarter (Apple’s fiscal Q3) across all products was up 33% worldwide, with Chinese revenue more than doubling at 112% growth. While Apple’s market share in China was recently reported to have dropped, this number is of limited interest to Apple, which focuses on profitability.
