A lost Huawei Mate S will answer you if you call out for it

A lost Huawei Mate S will answer you if you call out for it
Huawei has stuffed quite a few features into the Huawei Mate S, including its version of Force Touch. Another interesting feature allows you to call out for your Mate S if it is misplaced. When setting up voice commands for the handset, you can choose a keyword that the device will respond to by setting off noises, music and flashing lights to help you locate your missing phone.

So let's say that you've set your keyword to 'Mate." If you can't find your handset, you merely say "Hey Mate," followed by "Where are you?" Your Huawei Mate S will then vibrate, set off the flash, shake some more, and then play some music. While the music is bouncing out of the speaker, you can hear the phone say repeatedly, "I'm here."

It will be interesting to see if Huawei includes this feature on the Huawei Nexus 6. The manufacturer's first Nexus handset is expected to be unveiled on September 29th with pre-orders rumored to begin on October 13th.

The video below shows the "Find Your Phone feature, but on the Huawei P8. It works the same way on the Mate S.

Cool feature. Saying hey Siri should garner an audible alert.

You can either say hey Siri or get an Apple watch.

You can say that or get an Apple Watch, but I highly doubt that either will help you find your Mate S. You know, since that is what this article is about, and you provided no further context or content in your comment other than literally stating two things you can do.
