It scores less than 900 single core and 3500 multi core at Geekbench 3. Kirin 930 has Mali-T624. I provided links above. Kirin 935 probably will be overclocked slightly on CPU side.

This is more of a super midranger. The GPU should be fine but it's not flagship level and there's no info on the ISP.

It has Mali-T628 MP6 GPU. You can find one in the Galaxy Alpha (which has 720p display). It's far from the best on the market.

5.2" display in a compact body, Full HD, 64gb storage with sd slot? Good job Huawei, you made me forget that S6 or M9 or something like that. Although I was expecting it to have 3000mAh battery, still good that they didn't go with QHD. I might get this first while waiting for Sony Z4 launching.

Compact body? It's as big as Xperia Z3 which also has very good stereo speakers.

What I mean is it's compact in relation to the display size. Compared to S6 and iPhone plus, it's much shorter and narrower.

I would get this over a M9 but probably not over an S6

Swap out a Snapdragon 805 in here and call it the Google Nexus 5. DONE! BOOM!

Without physical buttons or stereo speaker.

Actually Huawei has been offering for a year now a screen protector (called Huawei "touchplus") accessory which extends towards the top and bottom bezels and function as physical buttons. That is why Huawei did not put any Huawei logo on front of Huawei P8.

Actually no! If you had watched the presentation carefully, you would know that the screen to body ratio is better than in iPhone6 or Galaxy S6. The bezels are actually quite slim!

Overall, that might be the prettiest phone I've seen.

Zenfone 2 with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, Atom Z3580, lowlight performer camera, dual SIM, 5.5inch 1080p display is between $300-$350. Just saying.

Noone cares, because Zenfone 2 is an ugly piece of plastic s**t. Just saying...

Good presentation yesterday, and GREAT JOB on that phone! Definately one of the best looking phones of 2015! I loved how they ripped apart the iPhone6+'s camera, in their presentation. Just for that, I am going to give Huawei a chance! Let's hope the premium version comes to europe too.
