JerryRigEverything is back with another one of his signature Read More
snuff films phone abuse videos. This time he's taking his graded MOH picks to the Mate 9, Huawei's latest premium offering. The big, bold device has been generally well-received thanks to typically solid hardware and much-improved software; shipping with Nougat was a nice touch. The JerryRigEverything YouTube channel doesn't really care about that - it's all about how much physical abuse the phone can take.
Huawei is expected to unveil its latest flagship smartphone, the P10, later this month at Mobile World Congress. It's not doing the best job of keeping a lid on the P10, though. The latest round of leaks have revealed a great deal about the phone, including three different color options: blue, gold, and green. Yes, green. Read More
The Huawei Watch was many people's favorite Android Wear smartwatch back when it was released in 2015, and it remains so because of its round screen and 'classic' watch look. Huawei CEO Richard Yu has now confirmed on Weibo that the Huawei Watch 2 will be unveiled at MWC, following earlier speculation that this would be the case.
Yu doesn't say anything about the Watch 2, but shares a promotional picture, featuring a man in sports attire wearing the watch. Could this indicate the new model is aimed at the sports watch market? This would mark quite a change from its predecessor, although it's what VentureBeat reported on last month. Read More

When companies send us review units, they usually expect that our testing will not include intentionally breaking them. That's why JerryRigEverything has a niche on YouTube. He buys and destroys phones to see how durable (or not) they are. His latest victim is the Honor 6X, and it doesn't go well for that phone. At all. Read More
Huawei has become one of the largest phone makers on the planet, and it's done so without too much help from the US market. The company has dabbled mostly with mid-range phones here, including some from the Honor sub-brand. The Mate 9 is the first phone Huawei has brought to the US that isn't explicitly going after the budget crowd. It's running the latest version of Huawei's in-house Kirin SoC, has an all metal housing, and the Leica-branded cameras are present too.
The hardware side hasn't been Huawei's problem in western markets. It's the software. I've always had trouble using Huawei phones for very long because of the many, many annoyances present in the EMUI Android skin. Read More
The original Huawei Watch was released nearly two years ago, and received mostly great reviews (including from us). While being a bit large and fairly expensive, it's still one of the best Android Wear watches you can buy, and even can run the Android Wear 2.0 Developer Previews. The watch was removed from the Google Store last month, but it looks like a new model is on the horizon. Read More
