huawei mate 8 review aa (14 of 34)

Hello Android fans! This week, we published our exclusive CAD render of the LG G5,  details about the Xiaomi Mi 5 release date surfaced, Samsung was sued over its lack of updates, the uber-popular Whatsapp went free, we learned how much money Google made from Android, several manufacturers released Marshmallow updates, and Google rolled out updates to some of its apps.

We’re trying something fresh with our reviews, starting with our impressions of the Huawei Mate 8. Basically, we’re splitting the task in two, with one person handling the video and another the written post. Of course, the two reviewers discuss and coordinate their reporting, but the idea is to give you more than just one perspective – and more depth – on the devices we’re evaluating. Quality reviews require a ton of time, so having two reviewers should allow us to produce in-depth, top-notch reviews faster than ever. We realize not everyone will enjoy this format, and things are far from set in stone. We just want to give you the best product we can, so one way or another, expect a deeper focus on reviews in 2016.

Don’t miss our weekly Sunday Giveaway, going live later today! Good luck, guys!
