At IFA this year, Huawei brought along its swanky Mate S, which was promoted as world’s first smartphone with a force touch display. Huawei’s hasty implementation was intended to beat Apple to the game, and that did help with instant global recognition, but the force touch on Mate S has its limitations.

To start with, it will be available only on the 128GB variant, availability details and price for which haven’t been confirmed. Secondly, since Huawei didn’t release any API, and since the technology is fairly new, there isn’t much incentive for developers to work on it just yet. On its end, Huawei has integrated Force Touch with several system apps and other parts of the UI rather efficiently.

We do expect that you will be able to buy Huawei Mate S 128GB online in India, post India launch. Besides Force Touch, Huawei also talked a lot about meticulous attention it paid to the Mate S design. The new Mate has a beautiful metallic unibody exterior, with a gentle ergonomic curve on the rear side, which along with the slim, svelte profile makes it extremely comfortable to hold in hands.

Talking of other features and specifications, Huawei Mate S includes 5.5-inch AMOLED display, with 1080p full HD resolution, with very narrow bezels around it. Huawei also discarded anything beyond Full HD as superfluous.

All heavy lifting will be done by HiSilicon Kirin 935 (quad-core 2.2 GHz + quad-core 1.5 GHz) with Mali-T628 MP4 and 3GB RAM. All three storage variants – 32GB/64GB/128GB – will also include support for up to 128GB secondary MicroSD storage. Software is Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with EmotionUI 3.0 on top.

For photography, there is a 13MP front camera with optical image stabilization, autofocus, dual LED flash and an 8MP front camera, also furnished with LED flash for low light selfies. Other features include 4G LTE / 3G HSPA+, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2.4GHz/5GHz), Bluetooth 4.1 LE, GPS, an accurate fingerprint sensor and a 2750mAh battery.

Huawei is expected to push Mate S in India through online ecommerse stores. You can add alert to promptly know the lowest price of Huawei Mate S in India once it is officially listed.

  • Slim and beautiful design
  • Fore touch display technology
  • 4G LTE
  • Good camera hardware
  • Accurate and multipurpose fingerprint scanner
  • A bit expensive
  • Force Tocuh available with128GB variant only

Huawei Mate S review

The company has succeeded in producing a high-end device indeed. Aluminum alloy secures the premium looks, matched by excellent handling. The Mate S will get your attention and the build quality won't disappoint in the long run. The phone is also quite generous in the hardware department. Its 5.5 inch FullHD AMOLED screen hits the sweet spot as far as current smartphone size trends go and also offers superb quality with sharp and punchy colors. read more →

Huawei Mate S Review

The Huawei Mate S is aimed at the premium market, and it definitely looks the part. Of course, that alone hardly exhausts the list of requirements you bring to the store when you're ready to part with that much cash.

Unfortunately, it's impossible for us to recommend the Mate S, and that's actually kind of frustrating — it has the bearing of a competent top-shelfer, but falters in way too many categories to pull off the needed performance. read more →

  • Comes with a flip cover included
  • Seriously attractive design
  • Solid construction
  • EMUI 3.1 has all the features you might want
  • Selfie camera is up to snuff
  • Display needs work
  • Recent apps menu is clunky and awkward
  • Main camera has problems with focus a bit too often
  • General camera performance is inferior to the best out there

Huawei Mate S review: Slender and metal, but not a great buy

Though Huawei's flagship Mate S has classy looks and a great camera, you can find better-performing top-end phones for less money elsewhere. read more →

  • The Huawei Mate S takes sharp photos,
  • It has enough power for everyday tasks
  • Its metal design look and feels great.
  • It's too expensive,
  • Huawei's custom Android is messy to use
  • The pressure-sensitive display is a pointless addition that adds nothing to the overall experience.

Huawei Mate S review

For a phone with so many features, the Huawei Mate S struggles to stand out. It’s time for Huawei to lose the gimmicks and focus on the core experience. read more →

  • Great screen
  • Impressive performance
  • Sleek design
  • Force Touch is a waste
  • EMUI skin is awful
  • Dodgy battery life
