Huawei Mate S Philippines: Price, Specs, and Review

Huawei Mate S: A world's first in Force Touch Technology

The Huawei Mate S is a mid-range device that is equipped with a full HD display, 2700mAh battery capacity, and an octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz and 1.5GHz. It's the ideal device for those after a phone with a premium design and feature-packed camera. Here is a rundown its specs and features.

Good build quality

The Huawei Mate S is built with a completely metal design, ending with a gentle curve on the rear of the smartphone that fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. There's a perfect balance of form and function with the Huawei Mate S.

The front panel is topped with a gorgeous Full HD (1080p) 5.5-inch AMOLED display under a 2.5D contoured glass screen with seamless borders. With its rounded sides, swiping will be much easier as your fingers meet the edges. The Mate S is also incredibly slim and lightweight, making it easy to fit in the pockets and easy to hold in the palm of your hands.

Force Touch Technology

The Huawei Mate S' touchscreen is revolutionary since it comes with a Force Touch Technology onboard, bringing an all-new touch experience. Force Touch Technology brings a smart pressure-sensitive screen to the Huawei Mate S, which allows for features such as zoom, previews for photographs and messages, and ability to play certain games with new layers of controls.

Impressive fingerprint sensor

The fingerprint scanner on the back has two functions: first, it provides a safe and secure method of locking and unlocking your smartphone, making it truly yours and yours alone. Second, it provides a new method of navigating the smartphone, allowing the user to answer calls, take photographs, browse pages, and access the notification bar – all this through the use of the fingerprint sensor.

Good image quality

The Huawei Mate S' 13-megapixel camera is incredible. It pushes the boundaries of smartphone photography with its multiple lens design (it is protected with a sapphire camera lens that is resistant to scratches and lets in more light) and features that bring an astounding number of professional level of features to capture great images everywhere.

The inclusion of a Professional Mode makes for an improved photography experience, providing you access to features and controls such as shutter speed, exposure, and light saturation. All these will give you greater control to choose what type of photographs you want to capture.
