Sentiments around fingerprint sensor ( 35 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

The camera is great, i love the fingerprint sensor, the display size is perfect.

This phone is fast, the fingerprint sensor is insanely fast and accurate, storage and RAM are crazy good for this price.

Great speed, great pics, ultra fast fingerprint sensor, and all around fantastic piece of equipment.

Fingerprint sensor is instantaneous, the phone is fast as heck, the camera takes incredible photos, the bluetooth has good range and is dependably stable.

It's fast and has a great fingerprint sensor.

On the positive side - the phone makes good pictures in bright daylight and its fingerprint sensor works seamlessly.



Sentiments around iphone ( 130 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

as an iPhone person who recently turned to Huawei, this is a fabulous great phone from Huawei.

Device: classic iPhone style, copied by Huawei perfectly.

Its not as good as the pixel camera, s8/s9 or iphone but its pretty decent IN GOOD LIGHTING.

The display is surprisingly good for something that is not a premier phone; even the video and sound compare really well to the iPhone 7 (the choice most of my family prefers).

I just love this phone & Incredible overall value!Just don't expect an Iphone Camera at this price range.

IPhone quality, picture is so vivid and clear.



Sentiments around price point ( 34 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

It is absolutely amazing phone for the price point.

I've seen a number of reviews saying it's a great phone within it's price range, but it's great phone regardless of price point.

Display: absolutely stunning at this price point.

The Huawei Mate SE is a FANTASTIC phone at this price point.

This is an awesome phone considering the price point.

but great for the price point!



Sentiments around budget phone ( 54 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

For a budget phone it is very good.

This is a very good budget phone I was very impressed this was my first Huawei phone.

Even if it is just a budget tier phone it works amazingly well.

I needed a budget phone and ended finding a great price!

This is an amazing budget phone, you can't beat it at the price.

Excellent budget phone.



Sentiments around mate ( 8 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

I spent a long time looking at other bargain phones with exceptional quality and features, and I finally chose the Huawei Mate SE.

0 prior to getting the Huawei Mate SE, and it was a decent starting smartphone.

I decided to upgrade to the 64 gb 4 GB ram mate se and I have never regretted it.

I think Huawei intended for you to drop the phone repeatedly and upgrade to the Mate View 10.

Mate SE has no NFC capability, which might be a deal-breaker for some, but I have NFC on my last 3 devices and never used it.

This review will focus on one of the major complaints that I read here in Amazon reviews both before and after I purchased my Huwai Mate SE.



Sentiments around case ( 6 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

Even though I have a good case in the phone, I've dropped the phone about 7 or 8 times and the phone still works great with no scratches on the screen at all.

Huawei was nice enough to include a clear gel case in the package to protect it.

come with a case.

Included jelly case:This case makes the phone more slippery than a wet bar of soap.

Mileage tracking App (in my case it was Hurdlr)2.

Now I have a phone that was in a case to protect it and slipped off the couch, that has a screen separating from the case and they will not repair or replace it.



Sentiments around app ( 5 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

Call screening/blocking App (My fave didn't work and I downloaded 4 other ones and none of them worked)The reason these Apps failed is because of Huawei's built in "feature" called Protected Apps.

When you go there you will find check boxes now next to your App that you can turn on or off:Auto LaunchSecondary LaunchRun in backgroundFor my Apps that weren't working before I have all 3 boxes checked and they are working fine now!I already liked my phone from the appearance, the size how it's large enough yet fits easily in any pocket, how it receives calls all over the house in places where my previous phones could not.

It also has a built in app protector so that no app can be accessed without either the password or your fingerprint which again works within a third of a second every time.

Mileage tracking App (in my case it was Hurdlr)2.

Under the heading "Manage all automatically" you must turn off the slider for App, which will place the App in the group "Manage batch manually".



Sentiments around i have ( 20 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

I have scores of apps on the phone and there are no conflicts with any of them, even lesser known apps work great as well as the bigger ones like Twitter, Skype, Facebook etc.

Even though I have a good case in the phone, I've dropped the phone about 7 or 8 times and the phone still works great with no scratches on the screen at all.

I decided to upgrade to the 64 gb 4 GB ram mate se and I have never regretted it.

GPS: No issues, I use Waze and Google Maps, both have worked as well or better than on any other phone I have used in the past.

I can play music and get GPS directions on the road and still have about forty-percent of battery life by the end of the day.

Reception: the radio on this phone works better than on any other phone I have ever owned.



Sentiments around previous phones ( 2 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

Sentiments around google maps ( 4 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

Google Maps with the PIP works very well.

The phone runs fairly smoothly when I run three or four apps at once - especially Google Maps, Amazon Music, and the camera (I use the phone as a dash monitor).

GPS: No issues, I use Waze and Google Maps, both have worked as well or better than on any other phone I have used in the past.

I dont know if its not compatible with google maps or vice versa but it's so incredibly glitchy.

Beautiful phone, great weight, fast, excellent picture and sound quality.

Nice phone good quality great price just wish the screen was better quality like Samsung

Amazing, amazing phone.

So far this is a beautiful, fast, crisp, snappy, awesome phone.

Keep in mind won’t work for Verizon and there is some USA controversy over the manufacture, which seems unwarranted, but the quality of this phone at this price is just incredibly impressive.

Less glitchy, and she's always liked the Android apps better.

The phone runs fairly smoothly when I run three or four apps at once - especially Google Maps, Amazon Music, and the camera (I use the phone as a dash monitor).

Apps run great.

I have scores of apps on the phone and there are no conflicts with any of them, even lesser known apps work great as well as the bigger ones like Twitter, Skype, Facebook etc.

Apps open usually in a second or less, web surfing also loads pages in less than a second most of the time.

The phone is fast while navigating different apps as well!

Sentiments around previous phone ( 4 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

With my previous phone (BLU), if I tried to listen to music on my BT headset with the phone in my pocket, it would drop in and out frequently.

When I purchase a new phone, the previous phone is used for development.

When you go there you will find check boxes now next to your App that you can turn on or off:Auto LaunchSecondary LaunchRun in backgroundFor my Apps that weren't working before I have all 3 boxes checked and they are working fine now!I already liked my phone from the appearance, the size how it's large enough yet fits easily in any pocket, how it receives calls all over the house in places where my previous phones could not.

Sentiments around issues ( 15 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

It was actually a joy to use the device on a daily basis (outside of the above issues).

(These issues also plagued my Huawei Honor 5x).

Fast speeds and connects with Cricket Wireless with zero issues.

It has ghosting issues when you scroll or watch fast moving videos (e. g. , football / basketball / hockey highlights).

Works great so far only psp games have some sound and lag issues now and then.

GPS: No issues, I use Waze and Google Maps, both have worked as well or better than on any other phone I have used in the past.

My friend have Huawei ascend xt2, it takes beautiful photos and videos.

This is a very good budget phone I was very impressed this was my first Huawei phone.

Device: classic iPhone style, copied by Huawei perfectly.

After seeing his Huawei ascend xt2, I thought higher end of Huawei mate se will be pretty good for camera, also by seeing reviews in Amazon.

Sentiments around camera quality ( 5 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

Now I can no longer text photos (which the camera quality is pretty good) or receive any.

Other reviews have panned the camera quality in low light on this phone.

Camera Quality: Ok,my Sony Xperia had a better camera but it also cost nearly double the price.

The other is that the photo quality isn't perfect usually, you have to really mess with the camera setting to get some real good pictures.

In low light, the camera quality is pretty bad.

The battery life is exceptional!!

Picture and battery life are fantastic.

OK - yes this is a 'cheap Chinese phone', but it is fast, has a good feel, and plenty of battery life for the way I use it.

The battery life is awesome too.

It's definitely a phone that can do a lot of tasks and I honestly did not miss my high-end phone except for the camera this phone also has excellent battery life.

Sentiments around pictures ( 22 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

I like my phone to have good quality phone voice quality and reception, good emailing and good pictures.

Long lasting battery, super performance, great pictures, comfortable design and touch.

I just love this cellphone, pictures are stunning.

The 64 GB internal storage is great as well, since it guarantees plenty of storage for pictures and video.

Some people complaint about the camera, but I think the pictures took by the phone is pretty good.

For lower contrast and lower light shots, the pictures are great.



Sentiments around headphone jack ( 3 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

Headphone jack: 1.

Improves upon the iPhone design with the inclusion of a headphone jack.

This phone has the feeland performance of a much more expensive handset ,my only gripe is that the sound is a bit low but the headphone jack makes up for that I would easily buy this phone again and again without hesitation



Sentiments around screen ( 18 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

Screen quality is great and nice and bright, it's got some nice features my Nexus didn't have.

Nice phone good quality great price just wish the screen was better quality like Samsung

So far all is good- excellent screen and feels good in the hand!

I got it for my brother he likes it and even thought is cheep it's really good quality and fast, screen is also very good

Screen is great.

It's fast, the screen is super clear, and the camera is great!



Sentiments around sound quality ( 5 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

Beautiful phone, great weight, fast, excellent picture and sound quality.

The phone call quality is absolutely beautiful and clear as it uses 4G for HD quality sound as good as my brothers $900 Galaxy 8.

Phone it’s self it’s very nice and feels well made only things that I would like see improve it would be the sound quality from the speaker

The sound quality wasn't the absolute greatest but I was also switching phones from an HTC M9 which has unbelievable sound so I can't complain.

The sound quality is ok and the volume variability is absolutely abysmal.



Sentiments around new phone ( 7 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

I wasn't familiar with the company and I usually don't buy brands I don't know, but I was desperate for a new phone and this was a pretty good price!

I had to get a new sim card bc my previous phone carried a different size.

Waaayyy better than paying $700+ for a new phone.

After getting tired of low quality voice reception and battery and cost of new iphone, settled for Huawei unlocked phone after lots of hesitation.

When I purchase a new phone, the previous phone is used for development.

I would recommend this to anyone in the market for a new phone.



Sentiments around sim card ( 5 )

Huawei Mate SE Factory Unlocked 5.93” - 4GB/64GB Octa-core Processor| 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera| GSM Only |Gold (US Warranty)

My sim card is T mobile and with LTE network it works excellent.

The SD micro card and the SIM both live in a pop-out tray.

I had to get a new sim card bc my previous phone carried a different size.

If you travel internationally, this feature theoretically allows you to obtain a SIM card in the place you are visiting pop it into your phone and you are ready to go.

So I did a little research and figured out that buying a factory unlocked phone and a TracFone AT&T SIM card would suit my needs.
