The U.S. government’s beef with Huawei isn’t really about phones

One-liner quotes from intelligence agency officials aren’t telling the whole story about the U.S. government’s feud with Huawei.

In case you missed it this week, the heads of the FBI, NSA, CIA, and others recommended that we (meaning you and me and all consumers in the U.S.) stop using products from Chinese companies Huawei and ZTE. None of the speakers had any explicit reasons why we should heed their advice, but FBI head Christopher Wray offered this  [Read More…]

The HUAWEI Mate 10 Series is a battery genius

This post is brought to you by HUAWEI.

These days, your phone is your companion. It’s your lifeline in an emergency, your savior in times of boredom, and your game console when you’re away from your TV. It’s your most important piece of tech. So it cannot, under any circumstances, run out of battery.

The HUAWEI Mate 10 Series has a huge 4,000mAh battery – that alone would keep it going all day – but it’s got  [Read More…]

Huawei Mate 10 Pro review: A second opinion

Huawei’s best efforts can’t save this great phone from a failed launch in the U.S.

Heads of U.S. intelligence agencies tell Americans not to buy Huawei phones

The Mate 10 Pro is launching in the U.S. this week.

During a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing earlier this week, the heads of the FBI, NSA, CIA, and others proffered a narrative that’s been permeating throughout U.S. government agencies since 2012: Huawei (and to a lesser extent ZTE) are bad actors that can’t be trusted to operate independently in the United States.

According to the head of the FBI, Christopher Wray, “We’re deeply concerned about the risks  [Read More…]

Huawei gets caught soliciting fake reviews for the Mate 10 Pro on Best Buy

Huawei got over 100 people to contribute positive reviews for its unreleased Mate 10 Pro on Best Buy.

Huawei’s Mate 10 Pro is slated to make its debut in the U.S. sometime later this month, with the phone currently up for pre-order at Best Buy for $ 799 (with all purchases coming with a $ 150 Best Buy gift card).

That’s a decent price for what is a great phone in its own right, but Huawei isn’t  [Read More…]

Huawei P20, P20 Plus appear in renders

Huawei’s P20 and P20 Plus smartphones are hotly anticipated as the company is expected to take major step forward in smartphone cameras.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro vs. Honor View 10: Leica rock

It’s Huawei or the highway.

The Mate 10 Pro is Huawei’s most powerful phone to date, a showcase for the Kirin 970 chipset and its powerful Neural Processing Unit. But there’s a new, cheaper contender from the company’s sub-brand, Honor, in the form of the View 10 — which bears many of the same features as the Mate 10 Pro, including its high-end silicon.

With so many similarities, no one could blame you for wondering why you  [Read More…]

Huawei P20 to be unveiled on March 27 in Paris

It’s almost time to see what Huawei’s been working on.

Huawei’s 2018 has been off to a rough start. The Mate 10 Pro is a truly excellent device, but despite its greatness, won’t be heading to U.S. carriers as originally planned due to pressure from the United States government. This came as a pretty big blow to the company, but it’s aiming to redeem itself in just a couple months with its next phone – the P20.
