The global technology behemoth – Huawei technologies claims to resolve all these problems with its latest flagship device, The Huawei Mate 9. The device which was launched in Pakistan in December has been met with an explosive response worldwide with top publications like “Android Central and ‘Business Insider’ dubbing it the smartphone of the future. Customers are still lining up to get their hands on this device which is reportedly short in multiple brand outlets already. Huawei Mate 9 is the dawn of a new era in smartphone technologies. It allows the consumers to vividly capture their most memorable moments, with the 2nd-Generation Leica dual camera and optical image stabilization, created by “Leica” – the world’s most sophisticated innovator in cameras. You can shoot crystal-clear images even with minimum light during the night hours. You can also use the amazing ‘Hybrid Zoom’ feature to get closer than ever before. Designed beautifully by Porsche, the Mate-9 device is surely “A Step Ahead”; Its camera also has the power to create superb “Bokeh” – ‘aesthetic blur’, which the Mate-9 can create even after the moment of capture has passed. Another outstanding feature is the 4k video-shooting capability, with 5-axis stabilizer to shoot the smoothest hand-held video. It also features a 720p ‘slow-motion mode’ that shoots at 240fps, so every single frame is vividly captured. Using the H.265 video compression standard, means movies take up 20 to 50 percent less storage-space.

Huawei announces Limited Edition Porsche Design Mate 9

Huawei announces Limited Edition Porsche Design Mate 9

Huawei have been one of the most successful Chinese OEMs in recent times with. Not only are they now the third largest smartphone manufacturers in the world, the company strives on a plethora of some of the most beautiful looking devices we have come across. The latest entrant to their already impressive lineup of devices is the Huawei Mate 9, the company’s flagship device of the year. Following the success of its predecessor the Huawei Mate 8, the company has upped the notch this time around by launching not one but two variants of the Huawei Mate 9. One of which is a limited edition Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design phone. This gorgeous device not only looks amazing, it packs a punch in the hardware front as well. The Mate 9 Porsche Design phone sports a 5.5″ QHD 534ppi AMOLED display, the company’s much renowned and latest Kirin 960 chipset, 6GB RAM, 256GB of non-expandable storage, dual Leica-branded cameras, one features a 12MP color sensor while the other is a 20MP black & white sensor, an 8MP front shooter, a massive 4000mAh battery and runs on Android 7.0 with Huawei’s own customized EMUI . On the camera front, the duo is the second generation camera of what was found in the Huawei P9 and thanks to the Kirin 960, it’s able to capture 4K video which the P9 couldn’t do. Another new addition is Hybrid Zoom, which is a 2x digital zoom that uses information from both camera sensors. Huawei has overhauled its EMUI Android skin (based on Android 7.0) for the phones’ launch, giving it a fresh and simplified look with more blues and whites and reducing menu clutter. It certainly looks better than older versions of EMUI, and Huawei is also giving users the option of using an app drawer — rather than enforcing its previous iOS-inspired system of app-placement where everything you install has to find a place on the home screen. The company says it’s also introduced a number of software tweaks, including a machine learning-powered system which watches how you use the phone and changes the allocation of processing power accordingly. Huawei’s promise is that the Mate 9 which actually gets faster the more you use it — the opposite of what happens with most Android phones — and the company claims internal tests have found that performance improved by as much as 8 percent over 10,000 hours of simulated use. And all of this is powered by the company’s new octa-core Kirin 960 system-on-chip, which supports the Vulkan API for improved graphical crunch. With all the added juice along with the Porsche Design and Leica brand affiliations, the device does come...

LG G4 Camera Testing – Macro Shots

LG G4 Camera Testing – Macro Shots

The LG G4 is undoubtedly a beast of a device and is a worthy contender for having the best camera of a 2015 flag ship device. We got our hands on one for a while and thought to test out its camera and take some good old Macro shots. Seriously, who does not like Macro shots?? The 16MP shooter at the back packed with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and LG’s very own Laser focus makes photography so fun and the result is well, you can judge for your self from the pics below. The back camera takes pictures at max resolution of 5312 x 2988 pixels which means the pictures are really sharp even when you zoom in. Not only that, but low-light photography with the help of its f/1.8 low light lens is painless (If you think you are in need for some light the ISO can be bumped up to 2700 which is insane!). The LG G4 camera software has various modes. Auto is for the casual photographer, while there is a Manual mode for those who are looking to really dig in and take the “perfect” shot. The layout is quite similar to what you will find in a DSLR these days, which is quite handy. You can also check out our review of the LG G4 as well. The pics taken below have not been edited at all they are as they were. Enjoy! Click on the pics to see full resolution images.  Which pic did you like the best? Let us...
