Sony and Huawei have trimmed their top smartphones on performance and beauty. Both are athletes with great facilities and good cameras.

They are probably two of the best smartphones this year: the Huawei P8 and the Sony Xperia Z3 plus elegant look, flat and feels light and compact. As materials dominate well processed metal and glass. Not only the exterior is one: both are the current flagships of the two manufacturers–that’s why they had to in the c’t lab prove that they belong by performance endurance of up to top devices.

Huawei P8



Huawei puts a gem in your hand with its latest flagship called P8. Inspired by the design elements of leatherbound handcrafted book binding, the P8 combines aesthetic lines with advanced technology.

They call it beauty with wisdom, innovation and elegance all rolled into the P8. The P-series by Huawei has always been about beauty, brawn and brains and the previous P7 was a testament to that statement. As for the P8, it elevates it even further, and you will fall in love at first sight with the smartphone.

Here at Ausdroid we get to review a lot of high end phones and it’s what we all love to do. The problem is that the high end phone is not for everyone. Some people just need a phone that does the basics and manages to do that with relative ease.

For example, everyone has a friend or a relative (read father/mother/grandmother here) who is either technologically challenged or doesn’t care about how good/fast/pretty their phone is. It is these people that we often forget to cater for, and it’s these people that we with some technical sense need to look after.

A couple of weeks ago I received a Huawei P8 Lite and thought I’d do a little write up on it. Read on to see if this phone is right for you or someone you know.
