Huawei Making Waves In South Africa

Huawei Mate S Phonefinder

Huawei. Pronounce wah-way, is the largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer in the World. Let that sink in for a minute. 

Huawei is by no means a small company. It employs around 140,000 employees and over 46% of those employees are focused on nothing else except research and development. This is a fast moving, innovative and impressive company. 

To think that the owner, Mr Ren Zhengfei, formed the company in 1987 in order to offer consulting and operations services to other companies in China. The company has of course come a long way. It now manufactures some of the most impressive low budget and premium cell phones on the market, their Mate S device gives the Apple iPhone a run for its money. 

When it comes to infrastructure Huawei is leagues ahead. 

Telkom recently selected Huawei to deploy the next-generation ultra-broadband network access for in Johannesburg. Through this deal Telkom will achieve a downlink rate of up to 100 Mbit/s per user. In fact Huawei provides competitive solutions and services to many service providers and have been adding infrastructure in over 170 countries and regions, serving more than one-third of the world’s population. 

Huawei currently ranks as the top cell phone lead generator on Phonefinder thanks to the Huawei P8 Lite. This phone has a great combination of specifications and affordability and has been a winner on Phonefinder for two months now. 

Now with the launch of their newest phone, the Mate S, Huawei is set to make waves in South Africa. 

Huawei Mate S Review

Huawei Mate S 

The Huawei Mate S is available on contract in South Africa through MTN, Cell C, Telkom and Vodacom deals

This phone is stunning. It is marketed as "love at first touch” and we at Phonefinder agree. The phone is beautifully designed and packed with technology which will add limitless possibilities. It features a 2.5D touch screen display (meaning the glass curves around the edge of the phone, adding a sense of elegance) and a 5.5” AMOLED FHD Screen 

Smart Phone 2.5D Screen 

This simply means that the screen has no sharp edges. Think of an infinity pool. This design style is popular with many high end phones and it is no surprise why; the seamless border effect is elegant and makes swiping gestures much easier. 

Next Generation Touch 

The Huawei Mate S has revolutionised the way you will interact with your phone. With the Fingerprint 2.0 you will be able to use the fingerprint sensor located on the back of the phone as a mouse. With the Smart Pressure Sensitive Screen the true power of 3D touch is revealed.
