    iPhone 5 plus, is that you? :)

    Huaweis new phone sure looks a lot like a bigger and thinner iPhone 5.
    Love it :)

    It seems good.

    Disappointed at the GPU, same GPU as the Note 3 Exynos, won't be a patch on any top end phone less than a year old from Samsung, Apple, Htc or Sony.

    Great slo-mo vids and imaging for one, HD1080P@30FPS isn't exactly great anymore.

    So that level gpu can not do great slo mo and imaging in your opinion. Any real solid things that level gpu can not do?

    Not in my opinion, but according to the GPU specs and other products that use it, its inferior to the Adreno330 GPU which was used in many products in late 2013.

    I never spoke about what it cannot do, but I know much of what other GPUs do, it cannot do as well as they can and therein is the problem.

    One of the best looking Android devices for sure. Much better than the M9 IMO.

    Specs aren't that great on the other hand.

    Huawei have been approaching Apple & HTC-design level for a couple years now starting with the P6 in 2013 and most recently with the Mate7 last year.

    The only issues with them is their own custom SoC is not up to par with the best, their Emotion UI is beautiful but buggy, and they make thin phones with average battery life. You would have to go with their large Mate series to get the longer battery life you want.

    Doing the Max at 6.8" seems kinda stupid when a slim bezel 5.9/6.0" device could've been quite an attractive alternative to the 5.7" Note 4.

    I'd snag one in a second. Especially since it comes in 64GB plus a microSD slot.
