After the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016 event that was hosted in Las Vegas during January 6-9 2016, the consumers now have more options for smartphones from different brands, which were released a month ago. The Huawei Mate 8 is one of the devices that have been released during this event, and today we’re going to compare it with the Samsung Galaxy S6.

Designs And Displays

In concordance with VineReport, the Huawei Mate 8 features a metal body cover that comes in varied colors such as gray, gold, silver and mocha brown. The Galaxy S6 has a metal body frame that comes in white, blue, gold and black colors.

The Huawei Mate 8 has an IPS-NEO LCD display that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 368 ppi. However, if you don’t like big screen sized devices, then you will prefer the Galaxy S6 handset as it comes with a 5.1-inch screen size that supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 577 ppi.


The Mate 8 smartphone has been released with a HiSilicon Kirin 950 chipset, an octa-core processor formed from a quad-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.8GHz and a quad-core Cortex A72 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, a Mali-T880 MP4 graphics card. In addition, the device comes in two RAM variants of 3GB and 4GB.

The Galaxy S6 features an Exynos 7420 chipset, an octa-core processor formed from a quad-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.5GHz and a quad-core Cortex A57 processor clocked at 2.1GHz, a Mali-T760MP8 graphics card and 3GB of RAM.


The Mate 8 has a rear primary camera of 16MP that’s equipped with a face detection feature, dual-LED, autofocus technology and more. The smartphone also features a secondary camera of 8MP that’s found on the front side. On the other hand, the Galaxy S6 sports a primary camera of 16MP and a secondary camera of 5MP.


When it comes to prices, you should know that you can get the Galaxy S6 for only 199 dollars with a two-year contract or 470 dollars for an unlocked version of the device.  The Mate 8 costs much more and you will need around 630 dollars for the unlocked version of it.

It seems that purchasing a Galaxy S6 device is a better deal for now, than spending 160 more dollars for the Moto 8 (unless you prefer bigger sized handsets).
