Hands-On with the Huawei Pinnacle
The Huawei Pinnacle for MetroPCS (very similar to the Pillar for Cricket) is a small, basic CDMA messaging phone, in the style of a BlackBerry. Check out our hands-on impressions.

Like many BlackBerrys, the keyboard is cramped, but surprisingly usable. In fact, the whole feel of the device is surprisingly high-quality for such an affordable phone from a smaller manufacturer. It feels nice, thanks to a compact body, smooth lines, and a soft-touch finish on the back. It's also absolutely feather-light, a key advantage of a smaller-screen phone these days.
The features are basic, and this isn't a smartphone, but as feature phones go, the software is decent. It's responsive, and a few touches go above an beyond, like a main menu you can re-arrange any way you like, and a built-in weather function. The camera / camcorder interface is also nice, with a convenient, easy-to-use options bar across the bottom of the screen to quickly change camera settings.
Hands On with Huawei Nova Plus
Huawei churned out two mid-range handsets in Berlin, the Nova and Nova Plus. The phones share most features, but the Plus is a bit bigger thanks to the larger screen and battery.
Hands on with the Huawei Mate S
The Mate S is Huawei's new global flagship phone. Like most new flagships, it sports a 5 inch display, metal body, fingerprint sensor, and some advanced camera technology.
Hands On with the Honor 8
Huawei's Honor brand finally has a true flagship model in its lineup, and it combines Huawei's manufacturing chops with the Honor design flair, plus true flagship specs. It has the features of the Huawei P9 (another flagship) plus a few small extras.
Hands On with the Huawei Honor 6X
Huawei's latest for the unlocked crowd is the Honor 6X. This slim metal-and-glass smartphone has an attractive design and decent set of specs for a phone that costs as little as $200 if you're smart about buying it.
Hands On with the Huawei P10
The P10 is Huawei's flagship phone for 2017, (aside from the super-size Mate series.) It's a definite step up from the P9, packing in the very impressive Kirin 960 chipset, also found on the Mate 9. It sports a more rounded metal design and a new style of fingerprint sensor on the front.
