Isn't the K3V2 40nm Cortex A9? Would like to see benchmarks for it and if the GPU on it is enough to power a 443ppi screen with no problem.

Other then that, it looks really good spec wise!

Or brainwashing you into thinking it does, when it gets swamped by every quad out there.

Not that Apple will not sell our information - Apple, at least is governed, somewhat by US law. I am especially weary that Huawei equipment contain tracking/logging capability that eventually end up @ some China Intelligence Service, somewhere.

And if it is? Oh my GAWD, da Chineeeze know I like candy corn! Let us storm their beaches and take back what's ours!

I hope you realize that's how ridiculous you sound. No ONE cares what porn you watch, or how you read up on the Kardashians.

3 main points, that will likely get their answer in the following months:

1. how powerful and how efficient is the CPU, compared to the current market offerings?
2. to what degree will device be developer-friendly?
3. how much actual developer support will get (depending on the actual availability and popularity of the phone)?

If Huawei opens up their source code for the hardware (something that Android based manufacturers are supposed to do, but they don't always do), leaves the OS as close to AOSP as possible AND sells this device worldwide unlocked for a fair price, this could be the next big thing for quite some time.
OTOH, if Huawei keeps the cards too close to the vest, it will lose, regardless of the specs of the phone.
All they need to do is make it available, open/unlocked, and market it around.

Businesses, government agencies, etc. But regardless, what you're saying is that it's OK if they spy and harvest any and all info on your device? Man, I'm glad Hpnotiq has said it's OK! I was worried there until he pointed out that the only thing phones are ever used for is candy corn, porn, and kardashians. It's not anyone would ever actually use a smartphone for anything important, like business transactions, even just the mobile credit card readers.

Now, are the phones actually dirty? No idea. But to just shrug it off and say that anyone concerned about being spied on is being "ridiculous"? That's just asinine.

[citation][nom]sandiegoborn32[/nom]And 3 years from now, the iPhone 7/7s will still be running on a dual-core CPU and 1GB of RAM.[/citation]I'm not a fan of the iPhone or Apple in general, and I doubt I'll ever own one. With that said, the number of cores doesn't mean everything. Lots of two-core designs smoke the 4-core Tegra 3. iPhones have generally remained somewhat competitive on the CPU front, even if they're not the fastest. On the GPU side they've always been very fast. They integrate the latest PowerVR designs, so I have no doubt the graphical capabilities will be quite good.

You watch too much TV Tin Man.


If only the Chinese had Obama's phone - they'd have the nuclear launch codes and attack us. Oh wait, no they wouldn't - we're their largest customer of products and goods.

The days of Cold War style spy tactics are rapidly diminishing - and even if it wasn't, they're not going to bug a fucking phone. You think our government would be unaware that spyware is loaded on phones they trust with their most sensitive material?


And at this rate, why aren't accusing those traitorous iPhones of having such spy soft/hardware? They're assembled in China, are they not?


P.s. They're coming for your guns - I'm sure that'll freak you out beyond belief. Better go check your underground bunker to make sure everything is still there.

You know very well Hpnotiq there are people who need full auto machine guns with 40 round clips and a grenade launcher to go deer hunting.

After people were bashing mystwalker did no body watch the 60 minutes about Huawei and how it stole information from Cisco? Since I can not post a link on here you may want to google the 60 minutes report on Huawei. The title on CBS is : Huawei probed for security, espionage risk. Then think about what actual information they would selectively steal from your phone.

Remember, the cold war is over, therefore no spying or theft of information has occurred since 1991. It just doesn't happen - completely impossible. Why would they even do it? I mean the whole world is in perfect harmony, and no humans ever enter conflict or seek power anymore, so why even bother? Anyone concerned about spying is automatically stupid, because the smart-smarts know that spying is just LOL and no threats exist.

They wouldn't "bug a phone", unless/until they discover particular phones/devices that belong to a specific person. They could harvest data much like Google does, only they don't do it for advertising purposes. Then they could sift through information and find good targets. It has happened before with compromised laptops.

Also, this somehow ties into firearms. No idea how, I never brought it up. But since he brought it up, I must say, he's probably right. The government IS packed full to the brim with the most trustworthy and honorable people on the planet. Only they should have firearms, that way they can better protect us... from ourselves.

Never in history has a well-armed government and an unarmed populace of sheeple ever ended poorly. That's why the North Korean population is doing so awesome, the armed government there is making sure they don't do anything foolish. In the USA we have it even better - heck if it came down to it, you could just vote the bullets right out of their mags! Oh wait, by then we'd have willingly voted away our right to vote. Bleeeeeet! Bleeeeeeet!
