Huawei Mate 8 Vs Apple iPhone 6s Plus Review

Huawei Mate7 let Huawei high-end machine stand firm, approaching the territory of Apple and Samsung. Recently Huawei Mate S, Huawei Mate8 two flagship have come, furtherly steady high position and sounding more high-end level. With preparation of Huawei Mate7 before, and now Huawei Mate8 has been more mature, strength continued to grow, and Apple iPhone6s and iPhone6s Plus also upgraded compared to the last generation. Today we are going to compare Huawei Mate8 and Apple iPhone6s Plus two giant screen models, interested friends can understand more about the advantages and disadvantages.

Huawei Mate 8 Vs Apple iPhone 6sPlus Review

Huawei Mate series with giant screen character has caused a lot of attention at the beginning of the birth, Mate7 era let tepid Mate series on the peak formally. If Huawei Mate7 famed still with pleasant surprise to some extent, but Huawei Mate8 is in grinding with more details to let itself and user satisfied with the heart. Indeed, even if just look from the exterior, Huawei Mate8 is more delicate, progress is dye-in-the-wood.

Huawei Mate 8 Vs Apple iPhone 6sPlus Review

Don’t know whether or not specifically for Apple, Huawei Mate8 has approximate body size with Apple iPhone6s Plus, and equipped with a larger screen. The advantage of high screen account stressed by Huawei appears obviously under the contrast of the two models. 6 inches and 5.5 inches, for such a big difference, it is hard for you to think it will happen in two approximate dimension models, but it was happened on the Huawei Mate8 and Apple iPhone6s Plus

Huawei Mate 8 Vs Apple iPhone 6sPlus Review.

In both upper and lower borders or left and right borders, Apple iPhone6s Plus design has obvious disadvantage than Huawei Mate8, hope arrogant Apple’s next generation products will lay emphasis on this problem.
Of course, if Apple will solve the problem of positive utilization rate of the screen, the first step is to consider the location of the fingerprint identification, unless integration into the screen.

Huawei Mate 8 Vs Apple iPhone 6sPlus Review

In the current view, fingerprint identification should be a necessary item of flagship. Huawei Mate8, Apple iPhone6s Plus have it already, but with different location, different operation way and different experience.
Just mentioned, Apple iPhone6s Plus still put the fingerprint identification on the front screen, will obviously take up space, reduce the utilization rate of front screen. In terms of operating convenience, fingerprint identification on the front or the back, personally don’t think what should or should not, both are acceptable. So Apple should be changed for this in the future.

Huawei Mate 8 Vs Apple iPhone 6sPlus Review

For unlock speed, Huawei Mate8 is different with iPhone frequent entry, just 4-5 times of the press to input fingerprint in the Mate8 , this is also thanks to new chip driving signal technology of Mate 8, fingerprint image collection is more clear and accurate, no need to press the metal frame accurately during use, through the silicon Wafer emission signal and collect the fingerprint image information.

In order to ensure more accurate identification, Huawei Mate 8 fingerprint identification also upgraded technology, adopted three level clip figure comparison technology. Comparable to ridge line detail characteristics, including width, scar, sweat pore, image gradient information to reduce false recognition rate to ensure the success rate, enhance fingerprint recognition rate of the users whose fingerprint characteristics is not obvious(such as special populations who have winter finger desquamate).

There was no significant difference between Huawei Mate8 and Apple iPhone6s Plus recognition accuracy; in terms of unlock convenience and speed, Huawei Mate slightly dominant, Apple iPhone6s Plus has one more step of pressing process, but Huawei Mate8 can unlock as long as finger touches fingerprint identification key. The difference you can look at the following demo——

Besides, the fingerprint identification components carried in Huawei Mate8, Huawei gives its more convenient operation in addition to safety and unlock, such as answering the call, stop the alarm clock etc.

As a metal body design integration of the mobile phone, Huawei Mate is using mature CNC forming processing in current line, material choosing the light and high intensity aviation grade aluminum, completed after 52 procedures, the side chosen the metal wiredrawing processing for the first time, at the same time, also used the diamond cutting bevel edge which can highlight more metallic shine. Back uses the micron grade anodic oxidation and the flexible sandblasting, hand-feeling is more exquisite than before, still not worried about fingerprint residue.

According to the tradition of changing face every two years, the appearance of the Apple 6s Plus basic maintained the same design of 6 Plus, round body, three-step design are unchanged. IPhone6s Plus body size changed a little than iPhone6 Plus, but except to see apple released data, we could hardly notice, actually the basic differences of only 0.1-0.2 mm, very small. Investigating its reason, mainly depends on adding the function of 3D Touch control support on the screen, at the same time, the body was replaced by 6000 series aluminum alloy with 7000 series aluminum alloy.

From the superior craft system, Huawei Mate8 and Apple iPhone6s Plus each has his strong point. Especially Huawei Mate8 added concentric rings of texture on the front side shows design feeling, very lovable, and more upscale. Both of the rear metal technology can not be seen obvious difference from the naked eye, both are very sensitive; about hand-feeling, base angle radian of Huawei Mate8 is slightly smaller, slightly some cough up, but its flat design on the side is easier to improve grip stability, with superior and inferior.

From the system, an iOS, an Android. IOS system has the congenital advantage, this is caused by Apple has been hard to be completely beyond by Android models. Needless to say, the congenital advantage will still continue, but for the moment, because hardware saturated in the entire smartphone industry, so the fluency advantage between the earlier iOS and Android have eased compared with the past.
As for Huawei Mate8 and Apple iPhone6s Plus, fluency of the operation are both very good, daily use will not feel obvious differences.
Due to Apple’s strict review mechanism, of course, Apple’s iOS system purity is still the same as before, and Android provides more choices and more customization features.

Due to insufficient function of Apple’s own map in China, available degree is not high, there is a little practical “transit” function this time finally, you can conveniently search near information of beer and skittles. Of course, Baidu, Google map is still more convenient in domestic.

Huawei Mate8 carries the latest EMUI 4.0 firmware based on Android6.0 system, EMUI4.0 retained the acclaimed previous magazine lock screen, scene intelligent functions, make the adjustment on some details, such as cancelled the flashlight, screenshots, GPS and quick operation in the drop-down notice. More important is making a sharp optimization for dial, file management and cloud storage function. Introduced contacts, SMS library search quickly in the address book dial-up aspects, such as quick pinyin search; the yellow pages function is also introduced into the address book, here you can quickly find the surrounding information such as bank, hotel, courier, hospital etc. in the form of dial-up unicom Internet services quickly, Huawei Mate 8 introduced this feature into phone directories, greatly facilitate the dial-up experience of user.

About taking pictures, insisted on the four generations of 8 million pixels, Apple iPhone6s Plus photo upgraded to 12 million pixels, this is the second upgrade of iphone 4s upgraded from 5 million pixels to 8 million pixels, after 4 generations, have to gasp in admiration of Apple’s bold. But as usual, the concept of “pixel” of 12 million pixels are not the same as before, because single pixel point from the previous 1.5 microns down to 1.22 microns, the real key to the sensor size did not change (type of sensor updated or not is unknown temporarily), is still 1/3 inch, so do not expect it too much on the picture quality because pixels upgraded from 8 million to 12 million pixels, the more is just to see the number of differences. In conclusion, Apple iPhone6s Plus photo on performance is still close to its last generation.

Huawei Mate8 main cameras use new Sony 16 million pixels IMX298 stack type sensor camera, f / 2.0 large aperture, the sensor size 1/2.8 inch, the pixel size is 1.12 microns. Camera support AF + CAF (continuous autofocus) hybrid mode, improved effectively in view of the night shooting. In module, not only has LDS process motor, support the closed-loop focus, also joined the optical image stabilization function, effectively improve the quality of dim light shooting and stability of the video.
From the size of sensor, Huawei Mate8 is slightly bigger.

Below take a look at a sample of both performance——

Huawei Mate 8 Vs Apple iPhone 6sPlus ReviewDue to the different software ecology, they do not have comparison in hardware aspect, no need to contrast more here, however, mainly introduce the two hardware levels.
Apple iPhone6s Plus carries new A9 chip, matched with co-processor M9, running for 2GB memory; Huawei Mate8 carries new kirin 950 chip, matched with i5 intellisense processors, running for 4GB of memory. For more information of kirin 950, please refer to “the low power consumption kirin 950 chip Huawei Mate8 performance experience “.

Now Ann rabbit rabbit v6.0 can support horizontal contrast of iOS and Android, this version is particularly emphasis on GPU reasons, according to Ann rabbit rabbit published chip performance ranking and the measurement of author, basically people can refer to the following picture. Kirin 950 do inferior compared to A9, but for performance enough saturated, so the feeling is not strong in the practical experience, need not too care about it, just for reference.

In aspects of life, Huawei Mate8 carries 4000mAh battery, Apple iPhone6s battery capacity is 2750mAh, due to the screen size and other factors such as different software and hardware conditions, can not definitely see the difference of performance only from battery capacity. Test shows that Huawei Mate8 and Apple iPhone6s Plus are of the good life, don’t have to worry too much, Huawei Mate appears a slight better. Please see the table below.

Apple iPhone6s Plus supports 3DTouch:
Need to supplement that Apple iPhone6s Plus supports 3D Touch pressure screen, is a new skill to lead the industry, for the moment its maximum value is not to play, the future potential worth mining. Huawei Mate8 do not have pressure screen experience, but Huawei Mate S with pressure screen version, does not rule out future Mate8 will also increase the possibility of pressure screen version.

Huawei Mate8 supports knuckles screenshots:
In addition, Huawei Mate8 has knuckles screenshots experience, is 2.0 version already, in addition to realize the local screenshots of knuckles, also added more gestures, such as knuckles screenshots, knuckles on screen and knuckles letter hand gestures.

Single knuckles long screenshots: in the screen by sliding interface can realize long web, weibo, long figure interception etc., form a complete screenshot.

Double knuckles hitting record screen: double knuckles on the screen, can begin to record screen operation process, at the same time, synchronization is optional input environment, can be used in mobile phone tutorial share.
Single joint letter gestures: on the home screen interface, single knuckles drawing C, M, E, W can activate the different application, C corresponds to camera, M corresponds to music, E corresponds to the browser, W corresponds to weather, can also set your own letter of application.

Writing in the last:
From experience, Huawei Mate8 and Apple iPhone6s Plus are two ecological products, each has advantages and disadvantages, does not have absolute outcome, relatively speaking, more associated with the user’s personal preference. Apple iPhone6s Plus still maintained the advantages in the system and the overall performance, but Huawei Mate8 also reflected the obvious value in body building technology, the photographed range etc.

If compared to Huawei and Apple’s flagship a few years ago,so now the strength between Huawei Mate8 and Apple iPhone6s Plus has been closer obviously, it caused a strong smell of gunpowder.
