Huawei Mate 8 vs iPhone 6s Plus, Galaxy Note 5, Nexus 6P, G4 and more: size comparison


The Huawei Mate 8 is official and it's a big phone.

In fact, it's one of a fairly few devices to come with a 6-inch display, testing the upper limits for most people in a phablet. Screen size, however, does not always tell the whole story: the size of the bezels matters, the form of the phone is of importance, and many other small factors come into play.

That's why we have to look at the actual size and dimensions of the Huawei Mate 8 and compare its size against the size of other phones in its class (and not only). That's why in this comparison we focus on dimensions alone: comparing the Huawei Mate 8 first against the Apple iPhone 6s Plus, the Nexus 6P, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and then against smaller phones like the Galaxy S6, LG G4 and some others. Take a look right below.

iPhone? It looks ancient next to the T-Mobile Sidekick. I feel bad for iBoys that buy that junk.

I think iphone already looked ancient taken side by side with s6 edge, white Z5 premium, black z5 compact and white lg v10.

How dare you state those lies and then call yourself a Samsung Fanboy. The only trend Apple started was deliberately delivering s**tty phones to customers again again and again.

iPhone 6S Plus look like a joke comparing it to Mate 8. It's like comparing old phone with big bezels and new one.

7. darkkjedii

Posts: 30969; Member since: Feb 05, 2011

I guarantee you, Huawei wants iPhone 6S Plus sales though. Those big bezels get big bank.

Everyone wants Apple iPhone sales. Samsung may be selling much more devices than Apple, but Samsung would want the same numbers as Apple for flagships. You can't say that someting is good because it sells good. Sometimes marketing is better than a product. Don't get me wrong. In my opinion the last iPhone is indeed the best iPhone (:D). A lot of people might switch from Android, because Apple finally added 1GB of RAM and 3D touch is future (in my opinion). I wanted to buy it untill I tested it. Device is very fast etc., good camera, nothing to complain about how device works, but that boring design. The same big bezels from begining. Look at history of my devices. I know what I am talking about. Try to imagine future devices that you would want to get. It would look like iPhone with big bezels or like Samsung Edge display and Mate 8 bezels size?

Yes you're right, i love big phones and if i have to pick any i would choose Note 5. Those gorgeous beast has best screen to body ratio (the only thing keep me waiting is S7 rumour & memory management issue, it's almost a year since S6 was released).

12. bodzio1809

Posts: 407; Member since: Aug 28, 2013

Me too. In my country Note 5 is not available so I would consider Edge+. I never had big phone so I am afraid that it will be too big. Rumors say that Samsung will release small normal S7 and S7 Edge+ in begining of new year. If everything will be fine I will get one of this.

13. Diezparda

Posts: 941; Member since: Oct 23, 2013

Owh too bad since i think Edge+ is more expensive and sorry to say that's curvy screen is pretty much a gimmick compared to s-pen. I am an ex G-Note user (now using htc m8 and have regrets to sell my Note 3) Based on my experience i can say having a note device is like carrying a small tablet inside your pocket it is useful and the battery life is awesome, though It's not too comfy to carrying that giant inside your pocket.

Wow, I had htc m8 first and then changed to note edge. The htc was too small (however I loved it) the note edge is too big but almost ok. I just couldn't get used the physically home button again on the note edge and TW was killing the fun for me especially at the beginning with 5.0.1 lollipop. it was so laggy and slow and weird I went crazy... however 5.1.1 made the phone usable but the speed of the UI with every trick I know animations turn 0 using nova launcher etc was still half the sense UI speed. Then I thought I buy something middle-ish range phone and I end up with moto x play which is very cool however I really miss the notification led, I don't even understand why anybody would buy/make phone without it. They say there is a led in the devise but it is "hidden". Wise decision. Anyway i'm a light user and this moto can have 2-3 days battery life so it is not bad after all...

I didn't notice my Note 3 is that laggy/slow on the contrary my M8 sometimes lag (especially when typing & browsing when sometimes the page would take times to show the content even it's fully loaded). Clearly Sense is't the real issue here as every phone lags at some point but the battery life (2.5 - 3 hours SoT), camera, charging time was terrible for such a small phone. It'll be nice if Moto device all officially available in my country, most of them aren't and popular moto device become so expensive same with Nexus & some iDevice (most Asian brand like Samsung & LG considered the best option here).

So it's proven. No matter how much you reduce bezel, a 6" phone is still a monster.

Didn't need any proving lel, 6 inch is pretty big for a diameter even if it is a bezelless phone (screen ratio 100%)

lg might manage t make it small like g3

its still pocketable tough, this one almost the same as that 5.5inch bezelking, and other 5.7 inch

For a huge phone like this every millimeters does count. Galaxy note series dimension is my limit anything beyond that point won't fit inside my pocket. My friends own LG G3 and it's almost same height with my M8 although it's a lil bit wider but it's not a problem at all for large screen phone (kudos LG).

Yeah that Huawei looks good and it reminds me of my OG-Note N7000... That thing was FAT like a phablet is suppose to be... Ever since then Samsungs Note Series Phab's have been getting "skinnier" each year. The N7000 dimensions:146.9 x 83 x 9.7 mm (5.78 x 3.27 x 0.38 in) but the bezel, back in the Android Gingerbread OS days. Bring back the FAT phablet... Jeans with BIG pockets are in street style again. O.o

The huawei mate 8 is more compact when it comes to screen to body ratio. Of course it's a big phone because it's a 6-inch display handset. Anybody who'll assume that it's gonna be smaller than iphone 6s plus is stupid.

26. fyahking

It is shorter than the 6s plus.
