Could Huawei become the next HTC?

0. phoneArena 29 Feb 2012, 10:59 posted on

Huawei appears to be building up the potential to transform from being this obscure Asian company (as it is currently perceived by the average U.S. consumer) to a brand name that is well established on the U.S. market...

Well considering that Hauwei's new offerings are better then HTC's new offerings its looking good for them. They even keep the UI pretty much stock. I love it.

And besides, Huawei's high-end devices are really high-end. They treat their flagships differently from their entry level devices.

you mean they dont stuff the same chipset into every phone with minor clock and screen differences so one is "high end" and the other isnt? lol

If they can have a decently high profile flagship phone, they will be on the way to the big time. Before the SGS line, I would have never picked up a samsung phone as they have been making junk for years. Before android I would have never picked up another HTC because their windows phones were junk. LG used to be the best phones on VZW other than Blackberrys. Every company can rise or fall.

How is it the fastest phone? What do you have to back it up beside it is quad-core? Quad core does not mean it is better then a dual core. Intel vs AMD is all I have to say.

Everybody sing along:

O when the trolls, O when the trolls, O when the trolls come marching in. O how I don't went to be a mindless idiot like them O when the trolls come marching in.

-Yea I am really hard on HTC saying I like their newest phone and interface
-I didn't say crapdragon once in this article.
-Huawei couldn't say that if it was wrong. They had to have a basis for saying their phone was the fastest. If it is wrong well then thats false advertising and is illegal. However its not Its GPU is superior to that of the tegra 3 being that it has 16 cores.
- You haven't proved me wrong once. The S4 isn't a a15 cortex equivalent its in-between an a9 cortex and a15 I round down an call it an a9 cortex because if its not on par with the superior cortex how can you call it an equivalent to that. Its been documented qualcomm fixes their phone for benchmarks as well look at the skyrocket. So benchmark scores from qualcomm mean nothing to me.

The S4 is only about 30% better than CURRENT 45nm A9 chips. Considering the exynos 4212 chip is supposed to be around 50% faster than the 4210 chip with just the die shrank to 32nm, that would put it above the S4... and thats not even going into the exynos A15 based chips which are going to be even more powerful.

Why do I CALL it a crapdragon (my word that caught on because its TRUE)? Because the S2 and S3 are CRAP. The S4 is crap for now until they release it with the Adreno 320GPU. Its not really that hard to understand. I dont know what all the fighting is about. When the 2012 chips get released and the S4 finds its regular spot at the bottom of the pile again, you will stop chirping. But hey, if it warms your heart that the S4 can just barely edge out the exynos 4210 chip from 2011, then u hold on to that. Problem is the 4210 chip is on its way to retirement.

BTW, HTC doesnt make crapdragon, Qualcomm does. Huwai makes their chips in house like samsung does.

the same can be asked of all these people that are walking around chanting the praises of the S4. Its not on a commercial device yet either.

If they can make their products long-lasting and as-good-as-new software then yeah they have a very good chance.

I personally feel that companies should just stick to the name of the device itself. Look how popular the iPhone name has become because on every carrier around the world, its called Apple iPhone. Samsung was doing OK with the Galaxy S II until it went on the US carriers. I hate how it is called different names, I guess that's the issues with having multiple carriers and letting them say what they want in and on the phone.

Your comment makes no sense at all. Ive sold huawei mdoems and internet devices for years and they have been extremely reliable and very little problems. While i dont have as much experience with their handsets i am more than willing to gIve them a chance. Judging from their top tier phones announced at mwc they desrve to have a chance and be noticed

I think they have a lot of potential if they can get on a couple carriers and get some good marketing! Hopefully they get released in the US soon after the international releases.

Huawei definitey has the potential to be a major smartphone brand. Asian companies like Sony, Samsung and LG are big players in the mobile world now so why can't Huawei join them. I just hope they won't release tons of phones every month and not all receive updates, like Samsung now :/ (and HTC last year)

Huawei might just take away my money before LG does for their quad cores. shaping up to be a great year for the android universe. and this is only the beginning

First of all, PA this is a well written article...bravo!

second, I wouldn't think that Huawei benchmarks would be fraud, logically, If i were a company that wants to invade one of the biggest smart phone markets on solid ground, I wouldn't lie....consumers really appreciate honesty...

What the guys in PA think? are those real benchmarks?

44. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


I dont believe any benchmarks until they are on commercial devices. Thats why I keep laughing as people hold on so dearly to those S4 benchmarks on a reference device, not a commercial device.

If Huawei wants to make a good impression, then they wont lie. I called out samsung on their BS with messing with crapdragon benchmarks for their american SGS2 variants. Problem is that this is a new chip with no track record to compare it to, so it will be much harder to tell if its a lie or not.

Ofcourse they can, they have taken over ZTE in the race for it as well it seems. When the ZTE and Huawei devices come out here in the UK, I always look forward to them being branded by their real names. Its quite sad to see the networks buy the devices and rename them under their own names.
