Isn't RGBW the same to RGBC sensor of Moto X 2013?

You will certainly be making your own phones with removable battery.

Maybe the strip looks good on the actual device. The real thing will always be different from pictures.

Hopefully they release their source code or whatever so we can get some decent roms. It could be the most sexy device I've ever seen, but their os is goofy. Black P8 with CM12 D=

Agreed, just watching the live-stream and there's a lot of nice and clever features like the knuckle use and power firewall. Very impressed

It's a nice looking device, but I'm tired of seeing 16gb internal storage on new devices. In 2015, that just shouldn't be the case for flagship level phones.

They didn't remove the sd slot so it's still good if you want to expand storage. At least you don't need to shell out extra hundred dollars just for a higher memory model.

you don't know what is SC card ? u wont EVEN fill up those 16GB .. u have no idea that all apps can be installed on SD card ??? ppl cut this crap pls .. and START think !

Even up to 80% of the app stays in phone's internal memory.

Their launch was a great example of how not to launch a new product. The phone is really nice but they lost the attention of the crowed because most of the crowd can't understand what the presenters are saying luckily there are slides to make sense of it. I just can't understand why most of the asian smartphone brands who can't speak proper english have to present the product. why can't they use professional presenters?

Their vice president of the design team speaks English very well. But for those who is not good in English, at least they still know how to speak. And no, why would you need professional presenters from outside when they don't even know any s**t about the phone and the way they present will sound like it's scripted. So, hell no.

We are talking here about a launch of a product were you need to grab as much interest and attention from the crowd as much as possible, so not speaking proper understandable English is a hindrance to achieving that outcome. Now in regards of the presenter being from outside or from inside that is irrelevant we simply need someone to present the product in the best possible way. By the way any presentation that uses slides is to a certain point scripted, and i will take a scripted presentation over that kind of presentation any day.

Interesting point, however I also notice sometimes the presenters for Samsung and LG have poor english too. If Korean company with more money is fine with it, I am pretty sure Huawei deserve to get a pass
