Reviews for the Huawei P8max

Huawei P8 max review: Hands-on with the 6.8in giant phone
Source: PC Advisor English
Although it's thin, light, compact and attractive, we're not convinced anyone wants a 6.8in phone (not in the UK anyway). It should really be a 7in tablet instead at a much lower price. That's our first impression so check back soon for a full review.

Hands on: Huawei P8 Max review
Source: Techradar English
There's plenty of screen real estate on offer and the massive battery inside the Huawei P8 Max means you'll get a decent amount of performance from a single charge. Thing is - do you really want to be lugging around a device this size everywhere you go? Huawei says it's still pocketable - but only if your pockets are deep, and wide.

Huawei P8 Max

Forget blurring the lines between smartphones and tablets, the P8 Max kicks those lines in the shins and simply does its own thing. The handset – if I can call it that – features a massive 6.8-inch display. As well as being a full 1.6-inches biggest than its smaller, flagship sibling, the Huawei P8, the Max is just 0.2 of an inch off lining up as a direct Nexus 7 rival.

Huawei P8max: A massive, metallic slab
Source: Pocket Lint English
Huawei has announced two new smartphones at an event in London - the P8 and the P8max. As you can probably guess from the name, the P8max is a larger version of the P8 flagship handset but when we say larger, we mean huge. It features a 6.8-inch display meaning it really is questionable whether it falls into the smartphone category at all or whether we should have tagged it as a tablet instead, but Huawei is calling it a phone, so under phone it goes (for now).

Huawei P8 Max hands-on review
Source: Stuff TV English
No, you might not be able to fit in in your pocket. No, it’s not really an outright bargain as we often get from Huawei. And no, it’s not pushing the envelope of cutting edge tech in many areas. But damn, that’s a whole lot of screen.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
