Deal: Huawei’s SnapTo is Just $140 for the Next 3 Hours

Familiar with the Huawei SnapTo? Think of it like a Moto E competitor, only it has slightly better specs like a 5-inch HD display and 5MP camera with flash.

For the next 3+ hours, you can buy one on Amazon for the discounted price of $139.99. That’s a good $40 off on a phone that not only has an HD display, but 4G LTE connectivity on T-Mobile and AT&T, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 8GB internal storage (with SD card slot), and 2MP front camera.

If you are in need of a replacement phone, a starter phone, or just like discounted smartphones, hurry on over.

Giveaway: Win 1 of 5 Huawei TalkBand B2 Devices Before Anyone can Buy It

As Huawei continues its big push this year into the US, they want you to realize that they are about more than just smartphones. While their smartphones are certainly grabbing our attention (Huawei P8 for example), as are the rumors of them possibly creating a Nexus phone, their line-up of accessories shouldn’t be ignored either. And I’m not just talking about the Android Wear-powered Huawei Watch that stole headlines at MWC. Huawei also has a smart wearable/Bluetooth earpiece called the TalkBand B2 that is worth a look.

Before we get into why it’s worth a look, we should probably mention that we are giving five (5) of them away. Oh, it’s also not available yet for purchase, so should you win one, you will be one of the first in the world. Cool, right?  (more…)

Huawei P8 is Now Official, Along With the 6.8-inch P8max

In case you missed this morning’s live streamed Huawei P8 event, here is the skinny.

Huawei did indeed announce the P8 as their new flagship phone. The phone sports a one-piece aluminum body with “diamond shape blasting” to highlight the texture of the metal, is just 6.4mm thick, has a triple-layer shark-gill design, and a “sleek” back cover that is constructed of steel. Yowsers.  (more…)

Want to Help Test Huawei’s New Phone Before Anyone Else? Enter to Win a Chance at Droid Life

Thanks to the crew over at Huawei, we have a pretty unique opportunity for a handful of Droid Life readers. Through their Friendly User Testing (FUT) program, five of you will have the chance to test an unannounced smartphone from Huawei before it ever goes public. This program is typically reserved for company representatives and partners, so think of this as a VIP-like opportunity, where you could not only get early access to an unreleased phone, but you will also be able to check out new software features from Huawei.

Keep in mind that this is the company who is rumored (along with LG) to be making the next Nexus phone. It might be a good idea to familiarize yourself with them now.

Sounds fun, right?  (more…)

Huawei Watch Pricing Leaked, Could Range From $300 to $400 in US

There is still no official word from Huawei on how much the Huawei Watch is going to cost, but we have seen insane reports claiming it could cost nearly $1000. To folks who may believe that, please, stop. If Huawei intended to sell only a handful of these, and if it did not run Android Wear, then maybe they could charge that much. However, we all know what Android Wear is capable of as an OS, and it is nowhere near close to being worth $1000 to anybody. Sorry, just stating facts here.

According to the latest price leak, with later confirmation from Mobile Fun (UK retailer) going to TechnoBuffalo, we could be looking at a price ranging from anywhere between $300 to $400, depending on which model you want.  (more…)

Huawei Might Just be the Next Nexus Maker

Over the last week or so, rumors suggesting that a Chinese smartphone maker would make the next Nexus phone have really heated up. I still haven’t fully wrapped my brain around the idea, but I can’t say that I would be opposed to it. Companies like Lenovo, Xiaomi, and Huawei are starting to make really nice high-end hardware, they just don’t typically get any attention in the US. And look, if Google wants to repair its relationship with China, maybe this is a first step. Well, that might be a stretch, but going with a Chinese phone manufacturer would certainly be something new.

What if that phone manufacturer had already been decided on? What if Google has decided to go with Huawei? According to Kevin Yang, the director of China research at iSuppli, the deal has already been signed – Huawei is making the next Nexus phone.  (more…)
