Today, Huawei has been anounce the availability of Huawei Ascend Mate and now we want to show you the review of the new flagship phablet device which ever showing at Consumer Electronic Show 2013.
Before today, the Huawei Ascend Mate is attracting many user since the appearance in leaked picture. The Huawei Mate has a 6.1-inch screen is a veritable cross-border products. Interestingly, this phone can be use the touch screen while you are using a glove, thanks to the “Magic Touch” technology.
The phone is powered by 1.5GHz Hass K3V2 quad-core processor, and sports with 2GB of RAM. Here are the specification of Huawei Ascend Mate Android phablet :Huawei Mate listed reference price: To be determined
Popular criticism from the beginning of the release of the 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note influx of men woman fashion essential , and now this giant screen phone , more than a year’s time, the high-end smart phone market is not only experienced a quad-core price war the baptism, the main battlefield of the other hardware – the battle of the screen is intensified. Resolution, 720p become mainstream, screen size, the major manufacturers also will continue to go beyond the conventional, more entertaining design concept into the screen design, the Oppo Find5 of 5.0 inches, 5.5 inch Samsung Galaxy Note2 Zhongxing Grand Memo 5.7 inches, the screen size is continuously exceed the same time, the distance between the phone and tablet also been repeatedly narrowed.
CES2013 on this benchmark is again beyond the local manufacturers Huawei brings new king of the mobile phone screen – 6.1 inches Huawei Mate. The Big Mac is not only vast horizon of this screen is very attractive, more worth mentioning is its integration into a number of Huawei’s own display technology, such as smart ambient light brightness adjustment , manual color temperature adjustment. And the processor, the Huawei Mate “Created in China”, equipped with Huawei’s own of Hass K3V2, core processor, clocked at 1.5GHz, simultaneously supplemented with 2GB RAM memory, to ensure that the game, video performance requirements of multimedia tasks. In addition, the phone also bright spots in the Life full 4050mAh large capacity battery and QPC saving technology such as phone ultra long-running escort. Huawei Mate is not only the size of the screen on “extraordinary play, and more importantly, Huawei to create the ability to focus has demonstrated unique technology is everywhere. The following ado, we proceed from the actual product performance, together to experience this giant screen flagship.
Selling point: 6.1 inch 720P screen
The 6.1-inch screen or play video content, regardless of gaming experience, the impression is shocking, 720p display specifications compared to the fineness of the screen provides a guarantee. However, this screen is the most prominent place not only in this series of Huawei’s own painstaking innovative technologies have also been implanted this screen, such as by sun image algorithms enhanced technology, intelligent ambient light brightness adjustment , making realism and saturation of the color of the screen has improved dramatically, and the light can be achieved in the current environment automatically calculate the next the light transition point, so that gradient-precise control of brightness variations, let the phone in the same environment within the automatic brightness adjustment not flickering, more in line with the human eye to adapt habits.
Huawei’s own manual color temperature adjustment function is also worth mentioning, the user can manually adjust to get the most appropriate color temperature, and whether users still prefer cold cool colors bright screen, fans can find their favorite style screen color temperature adjustment. Thanks to a technology called “Magic Touch” screen also supports the highly sensitive touch operation, this feature is extremely useful, such as the winter season consumers wearing gloves can easily touch phone.
In addition to own technology, IPS + hard screen technology has also been applied to the screen of the Huawei Mate, can restore true natural colors, neither excessive rendering, color effects and is very lovable, coupled with the larger visible angle, brings inherent advantages for sharing multimedia player.
From the proofs of the screen, we can see that, compared with the Samsung Galaxy note2, Huawei Mate this screen unfolded realistic and not inferior color saturation, full color and full-bodied, dark areas and bright part of the performance of a more balanced screen the color of the sky, flowers, grass, skin, and other details have significantly enhanced the effect, the overall trend is still very pleasing to the eye.
In addition, the outstanding performance of the touch screen experience, our interface sliding, web browsing operation also test the point-to-point play 1080p video and installation Fruit Ninja perverted version of the test screen, the results show that the Huawei Mate screen fluency and touch accuracy to meet the general needs. However, because it is not equipped with a higher standard of 1080p screen, coupled with the large screen size, fonts or chart carefully observed details can see a little grainy exist, but not in the the general human eye screen distance obvious. Viewing angle, Huawei Mate can reach about 140 degrees, but if too low angle view some yellowish problems.
In addition, in order to effectively protect the screen, Huawei also Mate with a panel of U.S. Corning Gorilla glass material, not only better abrasion resistance and light transmission characteristics and highlight screen effect is more conducive to play.
Selling point: 1.5Ghz Hass K3V2 quad-core processor
No doubt for quad-core phone, the chip is the core, but sorry, have been quad-core chip technology are foreign manufacturers a monopoly, “Chinese core” but it has not appeared in a native quad-core phone, until Huawei’s own R & D The emergence of the Hass of four of nuclear K3V2 processor to break the conventional, and today we review this Huawei Mate It is equipped with this Huawei proud the Hass K3V2 processor.
A9 kernel the Hass K3V2 processor, 40-nanometer process, with a 64-bit memory controller, up to 1.5GHz clock speed, four processing cores with 16-core GPU graphics chip can provide the computing performance 80FLOPS 250M Triangle parallel computing capabilities with quad-core CPU and high memory bandwidth advantage, improve system efficiency, and significantly optimize image and information processing capabilities, and ensure that the running of the big game Caton.
Meanwhile, the Hass K3V2 processor with low power consumption, performance and compatibility features, 12 * 12 mm package, Hass processor called the industry’s smallest quad-core mobile processors, microcontrollers dedicated to affairs of low-power and set up the hardware and logic of the multi-level QoS scheduling module, chip fully optimized underlying system operating power consumption can be significantly reduced.
View of some the processor frequently exposed the “crash gate” Huawei also through trial and to ensure the stability of the Hass processor, Huawei’s official website said to 40GHz time-domain simulation system based on parallel and can cover / frequency domain simulation of the test equipment, the Hass K3V2 has reached the 500-hour use of the machine the zero crash standards and sustainable to provide a complete hardware signal. Meanwhile, coordinated operation combined with 2GB RAM +8 GB ROM memory combination, up to 2 * 32 channel data exchange between the the Hass CPU and RAM, and also to ensure that the performance requirements of Huawei Mate games, video and other multimedia tasks.
Next, we run sub-test in accordance with the conventional phone integrated in the security Bunny Running sub-test, Huawei Mate score of approximately 16,459, compared to the same frequency Qualcomm APQ8064 generally had two extreme scores or little gap score from the specific point of view mainly in the the Hass processor slightly lower CPU performance, which may be caused by the lack of architecture and made the process two processing.
Web performance test, Vellamo, Huawei Mate score score similar to 1622 points, and some other mainstream quad-core processor, a good description of the degree of optimization of the mobile phone browser , page rendering and acceleration had good control. In NenaMark graphics test, Huawei Mate academic performance of 59.9FPS almost full frame.
In addition to running sub-, we also use a more intuitive way to the game on the the Huawei Mate game quality, fluency actual test. Selected Temple flee and another Thunder racing game to test the size of the two games are about 30M, the turn-on time of the game are about 25 seconds, and do not wait to do too much to be able to enter the game. Show the effect of the two games are very good, both 3D scene or restore the car to accelerate the effects are more in place, the game runs more smoothly, the overall effect is quite satisfying. However, for larger games, such as Need for Speed, Asphalt, etc., the small download multiple versions of the game, but the engineering machine, the phone never been able to operate normally, open the game instantly turn off automatically after about The large-scale test of the game we will also offer for everyone in the future.
Selling point three: 4050mAh long life
Huawei Mate comes with a 4050mAh lithium battery is not removable, although the 6.1-inch large screen brings higher power consumption demand, but the market is almost 2 times or 1.5 times the capacity of ordinary smartphone with Huawei’s unique 30% The above smart saving system or Huawei Mate life on the very edge.
In addition to the high-capacity battery, the control of Huawei’s own chip power consumption is also more prominent, in addition, the Huawei original QPC is (fast amplifier control) technology and ADRX (automatically non-consecutive answer) technology series intelligent power-saving technology on power consumption control there are no small contribution, which QPC technology to quickly detect data transmission, data transmission completion key nodes, when no data is sent quickly turn off the transmitter circuit; immediately when again there is data to send, open circuit, a definite purpose, and thus to conserve battery power and reduce wireless radiation. ADRX technology able to identify the network status, and according to the difference of the network, automatically adjust the DRX cycle alone that is able to reduce more than 20% of the standby power consumption.
Evaluation process, we will also be mobile phone from a fully charged state is fully charged, the battery mode is adjusted to normal mode, turn on WiFi, screen brightness to the center, play video 2 hours, mobile phone power consumption is about 15 percent, while small the same strength test is also used their phones (battery capacity of 2000mAh, 4.0-inch screen), power consumption by 28%, comparison, Huawei Mate endurance should say is very good, and from the official data, the normal intensity, Huawei the Mate’s total life journey can be up to about 48 hours.
Of course, for such a large-capacity battery, many users may also worry about charging speed, Huawei the Mate also do the careful design at this point, the same percentage of power than other smart phones Huawei Mate, required charging time is shortest, fastest can save more than 30% of charging time, battery capacity doubled, but zero power to full power charging time than ordinary batteries takes about one hour.
Get Huawei Mate, I believe a lot of people turn Xiaobian feel, is domineering, 6.1-inch screen to make it huge compared to our common phone a lot, machine measurements size reached 163.5×85.7×9.9mm weight 198g, one-hand operation more difficult, even large hands boys substantially only reach the region of about 1/4 to the screen. Fortunately, however, the back of the fuselage to make some concave design fit the palm of the hand to increase efforts, coupled with a body thickness of 9.9 mm touches also alleviate a lot of the burden when the grip.
Continues Huawei’s rich business phone style design Huawei Mate, Founder stylish lines with ultra-narrow border design, the phone plays a more calm atmosphere temperament. Fuselage with integrated molding, material engineering plastics, with metallic silver frame side, to avoid visual monotony.
Fuselage with a the popular narrow frame design, coupled with the bottom Huawei Mate did not like the Huawei D1 Quad-Core XL set Android touch buttons, buttons integrated in the screen, which also effectively reduce the upper and lower blank not only makes the screen effect is more visual impact, but also hold the phone sideways so that the user can set aside a larger gripping space. The top of the screen mesh earpiece, earpiece built-in LED breathing light (in the case of SMS , missed calls, charging lights). Its right side with a 100-megapixel front camera, LED warning lamp and the light from the sensor, but we got this black models these configurations are well hidden in the panel glass, looks does not obtrusive.
Huawei Mate fuselage with arc-shaped design, can well fit the palm of your hand, back shell frosted surface, compared to the glossy more does not come off easily contaminated with fingerprints. The back design is very simple, the top center of a 800-megapixel camera, slightly raised compared to other places, so we do not have to worry about wear lens at a little depression. The left side is the LED fill light, below is a sign of Huawei. The lower right corner of the back of the phone’s speaker holes, with Dolby new generation of Dolby Digital Plus HD video effects.
Full texture of the metal frame wrapped around the body, the details of the work reflects Huawei’s advantage. The top of the body to the standard 3.5mm headphone jack and SIM card slot, a standard SIM card design believe that domestic users will benefit from. The power button and volume control keys are arranged in the right side of the fuselage, two buttons are easy with one hand according to the actual use of more convenient. The left side of the fuselage and the bottom were the phone’s Micro SD card interface, and Micro USB interface, In addition, it is worth mentioning that the upper and lower side of the fuselage with a microphone, used in conjunction with may help reduce background noise and improve call quality effect.
Huawei Emotion interface
Huawei Mate Android4.1.2 design, interface Emotion UI 1.5, Huawei’s own design and millet meters grapefruit, the most significant feature of the UI is also all applications presented on the desktop, eliminating the need for the design of the menu interface, the phone applications up concise lot, but the inconvenience is instrumental applications will take up some space on your desktop, the application is more desktop will look more crowded.
Desktop management, Huawei Mate can be said that the higher custom interesting good desktop provides comprehensive custom wallpaper, transition effects, window gadget, thumbnails, wallpaper replacement in addition to conventional replacement, the shaking of the phone’s built-wallpaper switch and then switch modes very worth playing, shake switch is shake the phone to change the wallpaper, and then switch is to set a fixed time, the phone automatically change the wallpaper randomly Moreover, the replacement of the wallpaper can also adjust the color temperature with Huawei Mate features combine to choose their own favorite effects between soft and sharp, the screen display is more pleasing.
Switching effect of the screen is not the first time Huawei phone the Huawei Mate also includes, in addition to the wealth of 2D switching modes, many such as rotating, square box 3D effect is only enabled when the switch of these effects than ordinary switch skip some hysteresis. Window gadget design, Emotion interface is also more compelling, especially stop automatically switching the photo album.
Although single-hand grip, but rely on the 6.1-inch large screen one-handed operation, after all, it is quite difficult, but Huawei’s Mate creative design allows this problem to be solved, and click on the one-hand operation mode of Huawei, we can lock screen dial pad and keyboard light button to the left or right to adjust to a single hand can reach common operations position. Optimal design of another screen is the navigation bar function, which is the design of a cost-saving screen space, due to the design of the phone using the built-in button, the button will take up screen space, watch videos, play games, we can downward slide navigation bar hidden keys, so that the screen is more pure. However Tucao we got this project machine, this identification and sensitivity is not very high, still room for improvement in the details.
In addition, Huawei’s suspension button is relatively cool, suspension button four shortcut keys including a calculator , video, text messages , memos , click the floating window, we will see several functional windows stacked on the main screen of , while when not suspended button Zeyi semitransparent stays in the sides of the screen, it is very convenient to use. Addition to these characteristics, the the Emotion conventional setting function more perfect, for example, you can adjust the font size, multiple scene modes are very thoughtful design, different habits of different groups of people to find solutions.
Overall, the Android phone hardware increasing homogenization of the status quo, the interface Huawei in addition to the focus of their own cell phone product differentiation to expand beyond the hardware, Emotion UI will not only allow us to see the Huawei intimate details at its interface and plug-in style to meet the domestic habits of the user, but Emotion fluency and some details still need several optimization.
Comprehensive cloud applications
Cloud era, a variety of cloud services, natural and ultimately, Huawei Mate native built a comprehensive Huawei’s own cloud services, including support 160G massive cloud storage, mobile positioning , data backup , synchronization personal information remotely read data and delete data Let directly manage mobile data in the cloud can no longer have to worry about the phone is lost after the troubles.
Moreover, Huawei Mate, also uses “the provincial amount accelerate Update technology, this is also the first time in the country, apply the update, simply download the upgrade package, without having to download the full Apk file, save up to 75% of the applications update traffic and download time.
As the flagship model of a cross-border business performance in Huawei Mate also well represented, a variety of practical business application support and a strong satellite signal can fully meet the user a variety of business needs. Huawei Mate Support Office, PDF, WPS, ZIP files and e-mail to let anywhere Pocket Office; business card reading functions comparable to carry massive electronic business card folder, more photo avatar add notes, and never have to worry forget name of embarrassment.
The phone no matter how good letter number is no good, dual-antenna design Huawei Mate, HP + MRC can effectively solve the problem of screen anyway, compared with the same phone signal reception performance boost of about 2.5dB, a year-on-year rate of coverage to enhance 20-30%, and the phone can support five-band UMTS global roaming, traveling abroad, business meetings signal can also be kept clear at any time. In the area of satellite navigation, the Huawei Mate is the first to adopt a dual-satellite navigation, at the same time support the U.S. GPS and Russian Glonass two satellite navigation, faster and more accurate, and there are the offline navigation features and photo navigation feature, users need only Enter the current location, open the camera facing the Crossroads intersection, navigation arrows will appear in the preview tour to more intuitively guidelines to help users easily reach your destination easier.
While mobile office, leisure and entertainment features is essential smartphone, Huawei Mate also fully take into account the multimedia needs of the user, there is not a small improvement for both music player video player, the details of the office.
Huawei Mate comes with the player interface beautifully simple synchronization support The Cover lyrics display, but with reference to the iTunes Flow interface, play different songs in different rhythm behind the background light will change color and effect, very cool, and sleep timer function design is also quite intimate. Support the format, flac, ape, mp3, wav, midi lossy and lossless audio format can be smooth playback; sound, Huawei Mate this is also strengthened, comes with Dolby + Surround Sound, open after You can enjoy the shock effect of the surround sound.
In addition to audio and video playback, Huawei Mate glittering lot. First video compatible with Huawei the Hass of this processor embedded in almost all mainstream hardware video codecs, and video interface to the CPU computing unit, guarantee performance without increasing power consumption. The following table compares the Huawei Hass processor, quad-core processors and other mainstream video compatible format, can see Huawei almost do mainstream format fully compatible, and it proved we measured, we copyed phone in mp4, avi, wma, f4v the rmvb format of 1080p video phone can recognize and play normally, very powerful, and in addition to the rmvb file while playing, drag the progress bar will appear slightly Caton other mainstream The video can be achieved relatively perfect sound and picture synchronization effect.
|Processor Model||Supported formats||Does not support the format||Remark|
|Samsung 4412||rm, rmvb, 3gp, 3g2, avi, mp4, wmv, flv, mkv, mov, asf||f4v||avi: H263 encoding format does not support video playback only sound image;|
|Nvidia Tegra3||3gp, 3g2, avi, mp4, wmv, mkv, mov, asf||rm, rmvb, flv, f4v||wmv, asf: supports WMV1 and WMV2 encoding format video|
|The Qualcomm APQ8064 four nuclear||3gp, 3g2, avi, mp4, f4v, mov||asf, mkv, rm, rmvb, wmv, flv||3gp, avi, mov format part of the stream does not support|
|Hass K3V2||rm, rmvb, 3gp, 3g2, avi, mp4, wmv, flv, f4v, mkv, mov, asf|
The other advantages worth mentioning OTG functionality is supported by the machine, the machine can break through the fuselage storage limit, play external storage of multimedia files, at the same time, Huawei Mate native player interface in addition to the progress and the volume can be adjusted, can also lock automatic screen rotation, and at any time to adjust the brightness, comes with Dolby sound also can be used here, users can mode in accordance with videos and MTV respectively manually switch playback. WiFi Display technology, Huawei Mate phone – TV – displays the wireless connection, the video on the phone can also be shared with other users, and directly connected to the TV can play HD video.
The huge screen is not only thought of the film so cool reading experience the same shock, with intelligent read, Huawei Mate can also bring more interactive smart reading experience and reading at the same time we can not only anywhere words, do Remark using while reading, simple one-button Wikipedia and Google search function, we can easily obtain more knowledge.
Ability to take pictures
Huawei Mate uses a 800-megapixel main camera, and support for 1080p HD video recording specifications in terms of pixels and up to more than ten million, but in shooting quality and camera functionality has improved, the camera uses a back illuminated sensor and support gyroscope brought anti-shake capability, even in low light, can shoot high-quality photos , plus the Huawei brand-new camera algorithm optimization technology, Mate phone can easily shoot high quality photos.
Camera functions, Huawei Mate support panoramic skin, group shot, smiling face, continuous shooting, HDR mode, the camera can also perform a variety of comic deformation, filters and special effects to scenes, greatly enriched the fun when taking pictures. Completed from the focus to the whole process of shooting success very quickly, to meet a variety of difficult capture and burst, but the phone does not support continuous autofocus still somewhat regrettable.
Photo proofs Overall, Huawei Mate better than a lot of the same specifications phone effect a lot of outdoor proofs color reproduction is fairly accurate, distinctive and delicate quality overall layering, there is no obvious local overexposed or color cast phenomenon. Indoor shooting automatic white balance effect Huawei Mate to the color of the object complex light restore capacity performance more general, the scene will have some color cast, and the general performance of the phone to control noise effect.
We also investigated the shooting macro and night camera capabilities of the camera, shooting experience, Huawei Mate focusing speed the accurate focusing effect, click on a certain part of the screen in about 0.5 seconds. The photo shoot can be seen significant background blur, and the subject is very clear. Night shooting, Huawei Mate can be described as people some “slump glasses “, especially when shooting light source object aggregation ability of light is very bad, and noise control force performance in general, and good amount of light into the camera is not too little, basically restore the overall brightness of the environment .
Huawei Mate is a very sincere works some evaluation down Xiaobian personal feeling 6.1 inches large screen brings fun experience aside, Huawei Mate is particularly impressive is equipped with a number of their own core technologies, such as “Magic Touch” function on the screen, manual color temperature adjustment technology, its own high-performance Hass quad-core processors, automatic non-continuous Huawei original QPC (fast amplifier control) technology and ADRX (answer) technology and so on, without exception, we feel the charm of “Made in China”. Moreover, the small more commendable is the transformation of the ideas embodied by Huawei on this phone, the increasing homogenization hardware under the status quo, Huawei fight no longer a simple hardware capable of internally and externally, and strive to enhance the hardware technology and competitiveness at the same time, also be able to stop and to enhance the inherent performance of the phone, whether intimate UI interface, very useful for business people dual antenna design, photo navigation, etc., we can deeply feel that.
But at the same time, we should also see Huawei Mate there is much room for improvement as slightly heavy body, UI programming can develop resistance is not strong, camera light control abilities, the machine often appear Caton phenomenon are shows Huawei Mate there are still a lot of room for improvement.
