 Manufacturer Huawei mobile phone with GrameenPhone released huawei Mate 8 on 15th February, 2016 in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The huawei latest phone compromises high-end hardware technology at affordable prices. Day by day the technology is improving and market is earned good response from mobile consumers. That’s why Grameenphone also associated to sell the Huawei products.



The new Huawei Mate 8 cellphone offers the top-end specification and features to its customer on New Year’s Eve.

Huawei Ascend Mate 7 overwhelmed on 2015. The huawei cellphone company eliminate the ascend name from its older version. I think it is a good decision. Now the new release name is far better from old one huawei ascend and consumer also get a smart name.

The Good  The stunning design with many options, you can choose from many color and model

The great fingerprint sensor on back side with its functional features. The strong and good battery life

The Bad

  • It has very low-resolution display by flagship phablet standards
  • Non-removable battery
  • Speaker grill position make it looks somewhat low
  • The design of Emotion UI overlay

 The Bottom Line  You can get high end facility with a nice price compare to Samsung and Apple.

The Huawei mobile price in Bangladesh is 59,990 Tk.

The design of Huwaei android phone

The full body is made with metal. It has 4 different color combination and models.


  • Moonlight Silver
  • Space Gray
  • Champagne Gold
  • Mocha Brown


  • Moonlight Silver
  • Space Gray


You can choose gold, silver, grey or brown version.the colors are stunning.

The smart phone size is in at 157 x 80 x 7.9mm. It has 6-inch display, but the bezels have been trimmed down much. So what you see only a large screen display.


The back of the phone is smooth, the body is made with  aluminium metal, so it seems sometimes a bit slippery, but this is not a big issue. You can easily grip te phone at bottom part.

A speaker grate is at the bottom edge of the phone.  For this design the smartphone looks down somewhat.


The top part has front-facing camera and earpiece. The top bezels has a 3.5mm audio jack and the secondary microphone.

On back part the camera and the fingerprint sensor sets nicely. Fingerprint sensor is like a round shape. Sensor starts its function whenever other people are checking out your device.

One thing you must mind if you’re changing the device from an iPhone or non-Huawei Android device, you need some time to adjust it.

Storage and software

The Mate 8 mate with a HiSilicon Kirin 950 system on a chip, it is a quad-core processor closed at 2.3GHz and another quad-core processor at 1.8GHz.

It will upset you a little bit for its 3GB of RAM included on this version of the phone. But later you also get 4GB of RAM on both the a 64GB version of the phone. It is not a bad storage options of 32GB and 64GB range, and the pre-installed software didn’t take much space.

 But now in Bangladesh available only 32GB version that hosts 3GB of RAM.

This latest version comes with microSD support up to 128GB. If you want to use it, then use your second SIM slot to get the extra storage. Well huawei mobile phone from old version huawei ascend is quite similar to this new version.

There is nothing to say that, Mate 8 comes with the latest Android software, but  surprisingly if you look through on it was nothing but  6 Marshmallow.

You will be happy to get the all latest features from Google, but what make it worse? Oh! Huawei developers implemented it’s own Emotion UI.


Sorry to say!! It looks really very bad.

It loses the app level with all your apps on different pages. If you use a lot of apps, finding the targeted one makes you crazy. Apart from this, Emotion UI also changes the logos of apps.

The camera of huawei mobile phone

The camera on the Mate 8 has a 16MP sensor. the rear camera include video, time-lapse, beauty and light painting. You can make your photo effected by these modes named Light graffiti, silky water and star track modes.

One big negative to the world of slephie lovers is that, the Huawei Mate 8 camera was blur. It reacts on different mode with blur. The best result you will get in good lighted room.

On both the front and rear facing cameras, there’s a little button in the bottom right that gives you a variety of lenses for your photos.

Now come to the video part. In video recording, the Huawei Mate 8 will provide only the Full HD recording, on 1080p screen. And it is ok.

Battery life

The huawei smartphone Mate 8 has stayed long enough.  You will be satisfied if you buy. Huawei mobile phone combined with a 4,000mAh battery.


On a full charge, you can use it two full days.  Huawei claims it will charge upto 37% in 30 minutes, but we didn’t get it. It takes almost more than that.

What task you can do with it

You can complete your everyday tasks with its features and installed sfotware. you can scan business cards to add contacts, connect your phone to your car’s infotainment system using Android Auto.

The final verdict

Huawei android phone could be proud to announce its presence in the world of phone market. Yes it is a good phone with its latest features and specifications. Don’t buy it for video work. But you can get it for its stunning design.
