The first few Android Wear watches from mid-2014 were watches in name only. They were really more like tiny screens strapped to your wrist that told the time. The design of Android Wear devices has evolved significantly since then, and now there are some that look like honest-to-goodness watches. The second gen Moto 360 and Huawei Watch are the most watch-like so far, but they aren't cheap. Let's see how they compare so you can (maybe) pick up the right one for you. Read More
You can (allegedly) buy a Nexus 6P from the Google Store. Heck, that's basically the only place that comes to mind. But if you don't think you can get the phone elsewhere, you're wrong. Huawei will also sell you the phone directly from its site. Read More
To show just how serious they are about their effort to make headway into the US market, Huawei will double the standard warranty period for the newly-released Huawei Watch. While the in-box insert for the Huawei Watch will state that the device is warranted for 12 months, you now need only to register the device at the company's website to add yet another year to the period. Both Huawei and Google are certainly hoping this might make it easier for you to swallow the idea of paying $399 for a smartwatch. Read More
Huawei is one of the largest smartphone makers in the world, and while it may not be anywhere near as prominent outside of China as it is domestically, the brand is attracting an increasing amount of attention. You could say part of this is due to the company producing one of this year's Nexuses, but credit also goes out to an increasingly attractive portfolio of hardware.
Still, making decent phones is only part of the process. You also have to support them, an area where Huawei has had an awkward track record.
So Huawei has announced which phones it intends to upgrade to Android 6.0. Read More
Oh, Huawei. The Chinese OEM is responsible for one of the latest Nexus devices on the hardware side, but its software acumen is still somewhat lacking. The P8 Lite launched in the US earlier this year running Android 4.4 KitKat, and it's finally getting an update to Android 5.1 Lollipop. The catch (well, one of them) is that it's a manual flash that'll erase all the data on your phone. Read More
The Huawei Watch comes with its own nifty charging cradle that you can rest the smartwatch on to pump juice back into its battery. Thing is, the thing costs $40. Needless to say, that's not cheap. Read More
The upcoming Nexus 6P is the Huawei device everyone is drooling over, but the modestly priced P8 Lite is also out there. This phone launched a few months ago for $250, but it's on sale right now for $200 to celebrate Columbus Day next week. I guess that's a thing people celebrate now. Read More
The Google Store is already taking pre-orders for the Nexus 6P, and I'm sure a ton of you have already placed one. But there's an alternative you might want to check out, at least if you live in the US: Huawei's own online storefront. The manufacturer is also selling the phone directly to consumers, with a shipping date of late October. The prices are the same as the Google Store, but there are a few pros and cons for selecting Huawei as your phone vendor instead. Let's break them down:
- Google and Huawei may be drawing from different stock, so lower order numbers on Huawei's site might mean you get your phone sooner.
The leaks continue to flow out of Mountain View. The latest information on Huawei's Nexus 6P, the larger and presumably more expensive of the two Nexus devices Google is expected to announce next week, comes from a public image gallery posted to Imgur. It's a series of slides that appear to be designed for retail employees to use as an information and promotional tool. The slides include a set of hardware specifications and new photos. Read More
The Nexus 6P isn't as mysterious as it was yesterday thanks to the leaked image and the picture of the box we posted earlier, but what about color choices? We've got that covered. Above you can see the four color options for the Huawei Nexus. Read More
