Why the Huawei Mate 8 is the ideal smartphone for today’s on-the-go professionals


This post is brought to you by the Huawei Mate 8 — the new style of business.

Huawei wasn’t kidding when they said that the Mate 8 represents a new style of business. It’s got a smorgasbord of awesome features that will help business professionals stay on top of their game and not miss a beat.

Here are eight reasons why the Mate 8 is the ultimate smartphone for business professionals.

1. Big performance!


A busy professional doesn’t have time to wait around for things to happen. Actions must happen instantaneously, tasks must be completed immediately and multitasking needs to be seamless. If your smartphone chokes or stutters for even one moment, you could miss something potentially important to your operations.

With the Mate 8, you won’t have to worry about any of that as it comes with awesome top-of-the-line specifications that will breeze through everything you can do to it. Packing a powerful Kirin 950 processor with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, this handset is definitely not lacking in raw unadulterated power. Will the Mate 8 give you a smooth performance? Definitely!

2. Scrollshot automatic long screenshots!


Sometimes documents and web articles can get reaaaaally long and it becomes difficult to save them for offline viewing with your average screenshot mechanic. You’ll have to take multiple screenshots and break the article up. That can be a real pain to read but thankfully, the Mate 8 doesn’t suffer from this problem.


The Huawei Mate 8 has scrollshot, which in a nutshell is an automatic long screenshot feature. Simply take a regular screenshot, then when the preview appears, hit scrollshot and the smartphone will automatically snap and stick everything on your screen together.

3. Big battery!


Business professionals tend to have long, jam packed days full of meetings, conference calls, interviews and other business-related tasks. They need a smartphone that can keep up with them and last throughout the day. The good news is that the Mate 8 has a massive 4,000 mAh battery that will last even the heaviest of users 1.5 days.

It also charges quickly, topping up that massive battery from 0-100% takes less than one and a half hours.

4. Big screen!


During commutes, either via train or in the backseat of an Uber Black, it can be quite difficult to whip out your laptop. During times like those, a business professional will have to resort to using their smartphone for productivity.

This is where the Mate 8 becomes handy. Its large 6-inch screen gives you lots of real estate to type comfortably, view presentation slides easily and compose emails effortlessly.
