Huawei has introduced very interesting smartphone: the Mate S and Mate 8 in recent months. The Chinese producer Huawei went up to the third-largest smartphone seller in the German market in 2015 and the Mate 8 and Mate S would like to improve on this position. While the Mate S was presented at IFA in Berlin and a short time later went on sale; the Mate 8 has been presented only to CES in early 2016. The two mobile phones are technically and optically very similar at first glance, but take a closer look at the technical and visual details, there are much difference.
The Huawei Mate S distinguishes very little visually from Huawei Mate 8: The front is dominated by a huge screen and each very narrow margins, hardware keys do not exist. The display of Mate S measures 5.5 inches, which is slightly smaller than that of Mate 8, which measures 6 inches. Even if the difference in the data sheet appears small: at the latest when you have the mate S and 8 in the hand and compares, you will notice the difference in size significantly. The Mate 8 is bulky, but one hand can hand it, so you should not be regarded it as negative point.
The processing of both the Mate 8 as well as the Mate S is almost perfectly. The Mate S here nonetheless wins the comparison, because the back has two thin antenna strip of metal, while in Mate 8 has only a piece of plastic cover for the antennas used. The Mate 8 falls on the circular fingerprint scanner and the circular camera mount, while the Mate S has both built in classic rectangular design. Both Huawei Mate S and the Huawei Mate 8 have two colors: gray and white.
Basically, both the Huawei Mate S and the Huawei Mate 8 are a very good technical equipment, which is classified in the upper class. Let's start with the display: the resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels in common, but the display technology is different: the Mate S uses an AMOLED panel while the Mate 8 uses an IPS panel. Colors, brightness and sharpness are excellent for both devices. The internal memory is 32 gigabytes in size in each case and can be expanded via MicroSD memory card up to 128 GB. In addition, for Huawei Mate 8, there is still the possibility to take a second nano-SIM card instead of a mocro-SD card, so is it the ideal dual SIM smartphone. The simultaneous use of MicroSD card and dual SIM is not possible. Regarding the processor, the two devices differ only slightly, at least no difference in the speed. Nevertheless, the Huawei Mate 8 with the HiSilicon Kirin 950 is the significantly latest octa-core processor (Mate S: Kirin 935). Both devices come with 3 gigabytes of RAM and a very good fingerprint sensor.
Other differences are there between the radio links, here the Huawei Mate is 8 is clearly more superior than the Huawei Mate S: the Mate 8 has not only the aforementioned dual-SIM function, but also the LTE modem is significantly faster (LTE Cat6 instead LTE Cat4, ie up to 300 MBit/s instead of just up to 150 Mbit/s downstream). In addition, the Mate 8 the near-field wireless NFC, the Mate S has not. Even when the wireless topic Mate 8 has one step ahead: it supports Dual Band WLAN 802.11a/b/g/n/ac on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, while the Mate S only WLAN 802.11b/g/n supports 2.4 GHz. The back camera of Mate S and Mate 8 has an optical image stabilizer (OIS) and a dual-LED flash. The Mate 8 can create photos with up to 16 megapixel resolution (4: 3 format) that Mate S can accommodate up to 13 megapixels. For videos, both devices are limited to Full HD.
The Huawei Mate 8 is already with the latest Android 6.0 operating system and making it more up to date than the Mate S, which currently runs on Android 5.1.1. Serious differences do not exist, both units are very fast and the functions differ only in details. Both devices have pre-installed the user interface EMUI that Mate 8 a slightly newer version. EMUI reminiscent of the appearance and operation of the forth something to Apple iOS and is very easy to use.
An important point must not be missed when comparing two smartphones: the battery. While the Huawei Mate S comes with a 2,700 mAh strong battery, only slightly thicker and heavier, Huawei Mate 8 has a 4,000 mAh strong battery on board. not be missed: The batteries are not changeable for the two devices, when Mate 8 has a fast-charging adapter included, which fully charges the device within approximately 2.5 hours. During daily use, the higher capacity of the battery makes the Huawei Mate 8 clearly noticeable: while the Mate S just allow one day at normal use, two days at normal use are possible on Mate 8 easily. The Huawei Mate 8 is, like its predecessor Huawei Mate 7, a real endurance runner and currently certainly one of the smartphone with the best battery performance.
We can see Huawei Mate 8 dominates in many aspects, however, it must be noted that the Mate 8 is just appeared, while the S Mate is on the market for several months. After all Huawei Mate 8 is the latest new flagship for Huawei. The Huawei Mate S is currently cheaper than Mate 8 without a contract. If you need a budget good smartphone, Huawie Mate S may be a good option.

The telecom company “3” has introduced the Huawei E5180 4G mobile broadband router into the company's product line, and now we have the new smart 4G router available.
The first thing you notice is the size. The entire dimensions of Huawei E5180 are 110 x 70 x 70 mm, not much bigger than a coffee mug, and on top, the router has a beautiful soft blue LED light that indicates that the router is turned on. If the blue light is annoying, the E5180 4G WiFi Cube can be disconnected from the options menu, or simply by pressing down on the top of the router. Possibility to switch off the light is a welcome feature, since the blue light can be irritating.
Compared to some larger mobile broadband routers, it seems Huawei E5180 is elegant. On the front, there are two small blue LED light that indicates when the router has the connection to the mobile network and when there is Wi-Fi connection. On the back of the Huawei E5180 Cube, there is an Ethernet port, a PSTN (phone) port and a plug for the power supply. The external power supply is white with white cord, and fits well with the small little beautiful router. You can install the SIM card at the bottom of the router. Also a flat Ethernet cable is included in the sales package, and this is also white.
Technically, there is a Category 4 LTE modem supporting speeds up to 150 Mbit/s in 4G LTE and DC-HSPA+ up to 42 Mbit/s over 3G. The Huawei WiFi 4G Cube router supports the 4G FD-LTE on 800, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz. During our test, the Cube E5180 router showed the fine reception on 3’s 4G network. Wi-Fi connection is at 2.4 GHz, and the router supports 802.11 b/g/n standards. N standard runs with MIMO 2 × 2, and according to the sales package, the Huawei Cube E5180 could cover up to 250 meters - this part could not quite be confirmed, but the range of Wi-Fi signal was quite acceptable. The Huawei WiFi Cube E5180 supports up to 32 connected Wi-Fi devices simultaneously.
The router has only Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz, and it is not possible to choose whether the router must use Wi-Fi B, G or N standard. The router uses all three standards, and it can not change. However, it is possible that user can make four separate SSIDs (separate Wi-Fi network), but you can’t setup more advanced things such as bandwidth-limitation of the additional SSIDs. You can set up a SIP account if you wish to use the router PSTN jack to connect a landline phone on the router, and use it for Voice over IP telephone.
There is no possibility of connecting external antenna to this 4G WiFi Cube, so you must use the Huawei E5180 far from the nearest cell tower. The rate has been acceptable throughout the test.
Small, light and elegant
Two words can summarize Huawei E5180 could be "very good". The Huawei 4G WiFi Cube is not designed to be an all-round solution like many of the other mobile broadband routers on the market. The E5180 router is designed to be small and elegant, and so easy to install that you basically only need to insert a SIM card. The router is nice and easy to use in everyday life. Huawei E5180 is an exciting 4G LTE router that fits perfectly in the frame. Good performance, easy to get started and fine speed. Huawei E5180 does really well.

Many advanced options
The real fun options are listed in the settings where all the huawei E5186 router important settings hiding. Here you can change the name of the Wi-Fi network individually on both the 2.4 and 5 GHz. Unfortunately no possibility to make a guest network.
On the other hand, there are plenty of other very advanced features such as to setup a SIP server, which you use to certain types of IP telephone. The router is equipped with two phone ports, so it is possible to use the Huawei E5186 router to the IP phone. But this part, we have not tested.
It is also possible to block access to certain websites directly in the router - eg. block access to Facebook or YouTube. You simply enter the address of the web sites you do not want users to be able to access via the browser, and so prevents the router access to the site, which is quite useful if teenage daughter spend too much time on Facebook.
Finally, it is also possible to share the contents of a hard drive or a printer respectively via DLNA and Samba over the LAN. DLNA function serving as expected, and it is possible to stream video, view photos or play music. The setup of samba function caused not so many problems.
LED light shines like a beaconThe most important thing about the Huawei E5186 router is enough for daily use where you do not have to play with the functions in the menu, the router would be running rock-stable. Even with sometimes up to 14 Wi-Fi devices connected, Huawei E5186 LTE router drove stable, and there was absolutely no trouble keeping Wi-Fi connection itself far from the router. It is really convenient to be able to choose Wi-Fi at 5 GHz, when many residential areas have too many Wi-Fi network at 2.4 GHz, which creates noise and resulting low throughput of Wi-Fi. Huawei E5186 4G router is also equipped with two connectors for external antennas. The router's antennas are quite sensitive, and during the test, no trouble keeping the connection to the 3's 4G LTE network. If you live far from the nearest cell tower or in an unfortunate area, so it is possible to connect an external antenna. You can use below the external antenna with two connectors to improve the signal strength. You may refer to below the link to buy the external antenna for Huawei E5186 Router: http://www.4gltemall.com/4g-antenna-two-ts-9-connector.html The only really big complaint about Huawei E5186 router is the exceptionally bright LED lights on the router's front - LED light shines just like a lighthouse. User should not put the router in the bedroom if you are planning to get some sleep during the night, and there should be a configuration option to turn down the strong light. Overall, Huawei E5186s router is a quite fine and sensible 4G router. It was no connection problems under the little mini-test, and the router did its good job for 12 terminals. If you are planning to buy a future proof router with good stable performance, Huawei E5186 4G LTE wireless router is recommended.
