Huawei goes on offensive, sues U.S. government over hardware sales ban

During a press conference in Shenzhen on Thursday morning, the company announced that it is suing the U.S. government in order to attempt to overturn the ban, which was effected in August of last year as part of the National Defense Authorization Act. The Act specifically names Huawei and its  [Read More…]

Huawei Mate X first look: Three screen modes, four cameras, five Gs

First impressions of Huawei’s new foldable are positive — but there’s a lot we don’t yet know

Mobile World Congress 2019 is obsessively fixated on two major trends: 5G and foldable phones. So it stands to reason that Huawei’s first entrant into both categories should debut at the Barcelona-based trade show.

This is the Huawei Mate X. It’s super-thin, (supposedly) super-fast, and quite unlike any of the handful of foldables we’ve seen so far. The basic design  [Read More…]

One billboard in Barcelona, Spain.

We’re still a few days away before Mobile World Congress 2019 officially begins, but that hasn’t stopped phones from leaking left and right before they’re properly unveiled.

A photo taken (presumably in Barcelona where MWC takes place) is making the rounds on Twitter showcasing a construction crew installing a billboard for the Mate X. As you can see, this will  [Read More…]

Huawei’s latest wearable is a good fitness tracker wearing the clothes of a bad smartwatch.

The smartwatch market is a tough place to compete. As it’s evolved, it’s become more focused on fitness tracking than blowing up your wrist with notifications. That’s understandable given our increasing need to disconnect from our digital obligations.

So if the Huawei Watch 2 was the company’s full-featured, app-running, LTE-connecting smartwatch then the Watch GT is a wearable with a different set  [Read More…]

The best screen protectors for your Huawei Mate SE

The screen is arguably the most vulnerable part of your phone, and while your Huawei Mate SE may be a “budget” device, it’s still worth protecting that investment with a screen protector. These are the best you can buy!

Note: The Huawei Mate SE is really just a rebranded Honor 7X, so if you’re having a hard time finding “Huawei Mate SE” screen protectors, look up Honor 7X protectors instead, or just choose one from below!
