Ten minutes typing with the Huawei Mate 8

Posted on 20 February 2016, Last updated on 20 February 2016 by

Here we are, 10 years after I first posted about the Carrypad and I’ve got one in my hand. Over the last 24hrs I’ve been testing the Huawei Mate 8 which is an amazing phone-enabled MID. Or a phablet!

Battery life from this powerful 8-core platform with a 10 Wh battery is amazing. Screen-on active use will run for over 12 hours. That is amazing.

There’s a full quota of connectivity, a big range of sensors, full disk encryption, fine control of app permissions and the keyboard is very nice in landscape mode. I’ve allowed myself 10 minutes to complete this post.
