Huawei: our Mate S comes in rose gold "from head to toes" (unlike the iPhone 6s)

Huawei: our Mate S comes in rose gold
Apple's brand new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available starting later this month in four color versions: silver, space gray, gold, and rose gold.

As you may know, rose gold is a novelty in the world of iPhones, and its addition marks the first time when a metal-made Apple handset comes in more than three color variants.

Not long after Apple announced its new iPhones, Huawei had something to say about how a rose gold smartphone should be designed. More exactly, the company took to Twitter to remind us that its Mate S (officially unveiled earlier this month) comes in "rose gold from head to toe" - clearly a reference to the fact that the rose gold iPhones aren't completely covered in the new color: their front panels are white.

Of course, some users may prefer Apple's approach, but Huawei does have a point here: on a just how rose gold a smartphone is scale, the Mate S sits above the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. And while that may not matter much, it's fun to see Huawei trying to troll Apple (again).

Colors aside, if you want to find out more about Huawei's newest handset, you should check out our Mate S hands-on.

These companies are taking Apples ideas, and one upping them. This is a lot prettier to me.

Unlike Apple, which took other people's ideas (i.e. the new iPad pro) and made it worse yet more expensive.

I'll tell you how it is worse. It is more expensive. The Pencil is sold seperately ($99), the keyboard is sold seperately ($169), the pencil needs to be charged and the pencil is not compatible with the OS just the drawing app.

Not using one of the two more standard implementations of ntrig or wacom and forcing people to use their proprietary crap again (this looks alot like dells active stylus, but with much better support, theirs is pretty crappy, but it also costs like $19 with discounts)

That's stupid, every company has it's taste when it comes to making their phones! It's like: hey we have more of the color than you! It's not 24 karat gold !
