People! Huawei do not have a problem with design (look P 10 and Mate series).
They just want to prove to Apple (for interdiction on selling Huawei phones in USA carriers), that they can do almost the same (or better) Iphone X. And looks better! Plus the notch is optional .
Had been holding off from upgrading my S8 for the S9+ until I saw what this is capable of. And after watching the many videos of hands on experience I decided to bite the bullet and go for it with a pre order. Yes the notch is there doesn't bother not the first and certainly not the last phone this year to have it, it can still be covered by losing a small amount of screen that's ok it's a fix and least Huawei thought of this. Also no SD card tray. This was the one thing that held me back a small bit. But again Apple customers are used to it I'm sure I can too. Then no 3.5mm jack again not a deal breaker as use Bluetooth headphones most of the time and if you pre order in Ireland you get Bose Bluetooth headphones worth over €350 also there's a single and USB C headphones in box. Then there's the cameras I can't wait to try these and I congratulate Huawei for being different and taking a chance on this and from what I have seen yes 4k video looks messy and 1080p is about as good as it gets but I'm happy with that so many people really use 4k at 60fps day to day?? Back to the cameras they look amazing from the early shots I've seen. But everyone is different maybe the pixel XL 2 is the people choice maybe the S9+ is the best all rounder but I'm willing to try something new and that's my rant haha. If you get it I hope you love it. If you don't enjoy what you have and I hope your happy. But for me much like the P20 pro I'm trying something new and different. Have good one folks.
Phone finishes are getting better every generation, although I wonder how they'll stand up to wear without protection, which tends to either cover or dull their beauty. For the screen, nice that the notch can be "disabled". Waiting for next year already though when the next thing in smartphones is synthetic diamond screen meaning they're scratchproof and mostly shatterproof.
These smartphones may one day mean the death of SLR cameras, but not just yet.
honestly, the cameras in smartphones seem to get way too much attention... yes, it's nice they are good, but isn't "good" enough? Everyone's always comparing the cameras and even though they are already pretty excellent people seem unimpressed and want more and better. A camera from any 5 yo phone is already good. Why do you want such monster cameras on phones? What kind of photos are you all taking that even need that? Instagram shit? please... Most people rarely even use the camera on their phones. Everyone's a professional photographer now, aren't they? If you want a good camera, just buy a camera.. It's that simple. Maybe we should choose a camera and use it on smartphones as standard, while continuing to develop them, because obviously that's important, but only use them once they're perfect (years from now). This way, we reduce the prices of phones. Have a set of cameras for top-end smartphones and a set for cheaper ones. Cameras are already great.
It's called pushing the boundaries, maybe in the future, all these can be implement into DSLR and become small and easier to operate, we don't know, but if we don't move forward, how do we even explore and progress. Of course other aspect of the phone has to be push forward too.
No matter how much I love it, I'd have to see if they finally fixed the poor audio recording in their phones and I might go back. It would be hard for me to trade in the stock Android in my Pixel 2 at this point and the camera is gorgeous enough..
I feel, Huawei has really taken camera & AI improvements a leap forward .. Last year, it was Pixel XL 2 which brought such a great camera improvements along with great camera software (machine learning, edge detection, scene sharpening etc.) ..
God it's just so good looking, + that camera... I may just let the notch slide. At least it's the smallest I've seen by far. I wouldn't want to hide it though, that takes away a bit of screen so might as well use it with the notch.
While I loved this phone with Leica lenses, the photo comparisons I'm seeing online made me realize 2 things: 1, this phone has one of the best camera(s) of all the phones in the market right now. 2, my Pixel 2 was really advanced for its time, as the comparison between Pixel 2 photos and P20 Pro, you can't really see that much of a difference on the pictures. Which is a testament to Google Pixel: they were able to do with one camera, what others do with 3. Still Team Pixel 2, even after iPhone X, Samsung S9, and Huawei P20 Pro
I'm currently using EMUI.
I used HTC Sense, EMUI, Samsung Sense (or how is called samsung UI), Android Stock, Sony UI and 5T.
HTC have the best UI, Stock android makes no sense and it's used as an excuse for manufacturers who can't optimize an UI, EMUI is the worst of them all along with Sony UI.
I stick to HTC Sense being the fastest UI on the market + reliable and it was proved too. Lack of 3.5mm is another stupid excuse for manufacturers giving them space for other "features" while it's not fcking true at all as it was proven the opposite too. The problem is at consumers who refuses to open their eyes.
I hope U12+ will have a good screen or at least as good as U11+ otherwise, i will switch to a new U11+ and i'm done with smartphones for 2-3 years.
I don't know what happen to Sense UI in last year, but, i will take any risk and i will buy a HTC U12+ this summer.
i'm using a backup phone from huawei right now. I installed Nova launcher over EMUI because it became more and more slowly. In HTC devices that never happen to me (with more than 10 apps with real-time push notifications). In huawei i have only 3 and it looks that's ruined device performance already + I had only one widget on the home screen (other 2 screens were only few icons).... On Htc i had like 1 to 3 active widgets on each screen. It's totaly disappointing what a huge difference is between these 2 UI. At the same time, on XDA dev, none of u11 users were disapointed by device smoothness and power.
Nah, i'm a HTC user too, but after some updates last month(try to wrecked the phone so i can change a new one?), my m7 went dead. Then i try a cheaper Mi phone as a temporary phone, which is really really simple and fast. So I'll give a chance to EMUI. Just a matter of preference i think.
