Huawei Mate S IFA AH2

Video: Unboxing the Huawei Mate S

September 11, 2015 - Written By Nick Sutrich

We got our very own Huawei Mate S from the announcement conference at IFA 2015 in Berlin.  While the software for the phone isn’t quite finished yet and we’re going to hold off on the full review until that time, we’re going to hold you over with an unboxing of the phone instead.  Huawei is going for a super premium look and feel for the phone and it’s not just the stunning build of the phone that’s lending this look and feel either.  The box itself gives a great first impression of the phone and immediately makes you think “premium” from the onset.

The box is made of a quality feeling cloth-like material and even comes with a few extras in here too.  Besides the obvious charging cables and wall adapter we’re looking at a pretty premium looking pair of ear buds as well as a free flip-window style folding case in gold.  Everything about the phone itself is incredibly elegant, from it’s all-metal super high quality build to its ultra-thin construction and even the smooth slightly curved edges around the sides of the glass.  We can’t wait to see how force touch works once it’s implemented, but for now check out the video and see the phone in action as well as what everything in the box looks like until you can buy one yourself!
