Aloha Is It Me You're Looking For?
In a smartphone world dominated by Samsung HTC and Apple, new brands struggle to ring in the changes. But Huawei P8 is a unicorn in a field of heifers. Since 2007, smartphones have been iterations of the iPhone, yet P8’s lightweight design and elegant finish stand out.
The 1,920 x 1,080-pixel resolution screen delivers smooth video playback and strong colours.
Touch response is fast and innovative. Double tap the screen with a knuckle (yes, like a Neanderthal) to capture a screenshot. Draw a circle on the screen to capture content.
The camera’s Director Mode lets you shoot a video with up to three other Android Phones, switching between feeds to direct the finished product. There’s a 13MP camera on the rear and various effects. Beauty Mode, however, turns you into a photo-shopped ghoul.
This trip to Huawei will make you want to wear a grass skirt and do the hula.
