Description
The Huawei Mate S is somewhat of a weird fit in Huawei's current device lineup. It is not the eagerly anticipated successor to the Mate7 (that would be the soon to be announced Mate 8), nor is it part of the Honor family, or bothered with an Ascend moniker. But the model's main struggle is not that it does not fit anywhere, quite the opposite, it seems to carry a little bit of all the aforementioned aspects, spliced in with years of Huawei expertise and even a dash of cutting-edge Force Touch innovation. And while that may sound like too much of a mess to ever work, it truly does, making the Mate S an excellent all-round device, with little compromises, at least on the surface, that is.Overall, the Mate S is definitely an attempt to shake things up and experiment with new ideas, hence the "S" moniker, but it lives up to its flagship legacy with an impressive specs sheet. It rocks the impressive custom HiSilicon Kirin 935 chip, also found inside the Honor 7 and P8max, along with a crisp 5.5-inch AMOLED display, 3GB of RAM and up to 128GB of onboard storage. The aforementioned Force Touch display technology is also quite impressive and a first on the Android scene, but it has limited availability only on select markets with a 128GB unit. This might come as an unpleasant surprise to a lot of you (us included), but it all depends on how you look at things. Confining the new feature to a select audience actually allows the Mate S to shine as a complete package and not be defined by Force Touch alone, as is often the case with early technology adopters. And the Mate S definitely has a lot to impress with.
