The first major flagship of 2017 comes from Chinese manufacturer Huawei, and it’s a keeper. Having strengthened its collaboration with Leica, Huawei’s dual camera setup delivers incredible photos for a smartphone, which is reason enough to consider this larger than life handset.
But Huawei kept the improvements coming, from shifting the fingerprint sensor to the back and making it incredibly fast, to incorporating not just a great battery but also intelligent charging features. The processor is also incredibly fast, putting it at the top of the current pack for multi-core performance.
