Why must you purchase a Huawei Mate 40 series smartphone?

This is a very important question, as there are many other premium smartphones to choose from. So why must you purchase a smartphone from this series?

Well firstly, Huawei Mate 40 series smartphones has the best chipset Kirin 9000E 5G (5 nm) installed. This chip provides the new Huawei Mate 40 series smartphone the ability to run faster than any other 5G smartphone device when connected to a 5G network.

Then secondly, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro Plus have a 66w fast charging speed. Meaning it is the fastest smartphone currently that can charge their battery capacity at full at lower waiting periods. Plus both the Huawei Mate 40 Pro and Pro Plus can fast wireless charge at 50w which provides great fast charging experience even without a wired charger. The 66w charger is included with the Huawei Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro Plus when purchasing the device of which certain premium smartphone do not provide a charging block anymore to their clients.

If you not convinced yet to purchase a Huawei Mate 40 series smartphone, please watched the video below to see more key elements of the series:



The new Huawei Mate 40 series is exciting with its new features, but the question for everybody can it still compete with its current competitors and even new ones. Especially, since Huawei is sadly still not on the Google platform and is on HMS platform. It is a issue Huawei is facing quite a bit, however the market is forever changing and HMS is still in development stages where they are fixing software issues their clients might experience.

Remember Apple is also not on the Google platform and is using IOS. Thus, it is possible for Huawei to make HMS successful. But in order to do it, it takes time and to be honest give Huawei a change especially through the Huawei Mate 40 series. It has so many key features of which I personally love the high RAM speed the Mate 40 Pro Plus has and the chip to make the smartphone process information and data so fast and smoothly.

The camera layout, however I believe for some clientele it might be low-point and for some it will not matter after seeing the great photos and videos the Huawei Mate 40 series smartphone takes. Thus, my conclusion would be that the Huawei Mate 40 series are great and exciting. However, it depends what are your needs in a smartphone, how much you can afford and if your applications will work on this smartphone.

Thus, I challenge you to determine those factors and see if Huawei Mate 40 series meets your needs.

  1. Hi thanks for writing an article about Huawei Mate 40 Series. 

    Actually for all the Smartphones you tackled. They help people to look at the features they want for their phone.

    I am not quite familiar with mobile phone features. But I have this problem of not seeing the images in my website using my Android phone. Does that have to do with phones within Google platform?

    Hope you can guide me with the right phone for my blogging.

    • Hi Rose!

      Thank you for your comment!

      This whole site is to help everyone find the right smartphone for them. Thus, I provide complete of new smartphone brands and review new smartphones entering the market. Smartphone companies like to push a new phone into the market as they know clientele will buy whatever is new. However, smartphone companies know a lot of clients do not do research on the smartphones and just take the consultants word the smartphone will satsify their needs.

      Thus, this where this site comes in by informing the public of everything regarding smartphones possible. Now to your question, I need to ask which smartphone are you using? After knowing which smartphone you are using, I might be able to pinpoint the problem.

      But, I can clearly state it is not because of the Google platform. The Google platform errors has usually have to specific applications for example if you want to setup your work email, most companies have a extra application that needs to be installed in order to access any company data. It is like a protection application. The problem is this application is only available through Google platform or IOS. Not on HMS yet. Thus when you try to download the application on a HMS platform smartphone, the application will malfunction and cause the user must go buy another smart for just work purposes. Huawei brand is aware of this and are trying to resolve this. But, until then it is best everyone make sure they take a smartphone that matches the platform their applications will work on.

      Any ways I will wait for response of which smartphone you are using and try to assist where possible.

  2. This is an excellent review of the HUAWEI MATE 40 SERIES.  I must say, when I am choosing a smart phone or tablet I generally go for the top end.  So many times, if I do not do this, it generally gives up the ghost too quickly.  I usually buy iPhones and iPads and both were bought top of the line and they have lasted for years.  Every middle of the road Dell laptop I’ve had lasts two years.  I would love to check out the Huawei Mates and see what upgrades it has.  I have never purchased an Android but this article is changing my mind.

    • Hi Feochadan

      Thank you for your comment!

      Glad you find the article useful. You are welcome to come to this site any time. I try my best to keep up to date with reviews and brand reveals. There is so many factors that clientele miss to research on new smartphones causing them to select the wrong smartphone to them. This site’s aim is to help clientele avoid making the wrong selection.

      I will recommend you try the Android platform smartphones. They have some capabilities the iphones users cannot do or are limit to use. However, please make sure the platform Android smartphone you select meets the applications you want to use is fully functional. That is very important. 

      if you need any help, you may ask and I will try to assist. 🙂

  3. Thanks for introducing us to these Huawei mobile phones.

    The Pro Plus is some machine.  It has a bigger capacity than many PCs.  It will perform any task that you could possibly want to.

    Cameras are now becoming a major feature of mobiles and a lot of the advertising concentrates only on the cameras.  A 50mp camera is absolutely incredible.  You will certainly be able to take high quality photographs with it.

    I highly recommend these mobiles to your readers.

    • Hi Geoff

      Thank you for your comment!

      I agree with you 100% the Huawei Mate 40 Pro Plus is a beast machine. It shows how much technology as evolved that a smartphone can almost do everything a PC can do or even better than the PC’s themselves.

      Camera’s is always a major feature as today’s generation will rather purchase a excellent camera smartphone than a camera itself. Huawei also like to make sure their number one in taking excellent photos.

      Thank you for your comment and please if you need any help in the smartphone area, please contact me. Your friends are also welcome.

  4. I really like the size of these models. They all seem wider, is that correct? Some have 4 to 6 GB and others even have 8, that’s pretty good. With 8GB you can store a lot on your phone. I have heard a lot about this brand, but I have never owned a Huawei. I think that the next time I get a phone I should get a Huawei. How long do they last approximately? It being fast also works out great for all the social media sharing and document saving I do. It looks like a great phone for personal and business use. 

    • Hi Christine

      Thank you for your comment!

      It is a wide and large smartphone. The RAM memory is really great especially the Huawei Mate 40 Pro Plus that has 12GB RAM memory on board! It just shows how great technology evolves. 

      The Huawei Mate 40 series devices last +-93 hours, but also depends how much you use your smartphone and for what you using your smartphone for. The one key factor this Huawei Mate 40 series has, is the 66w charger. Meaning this smartphone charges faster than any iPhone and Samsung that is currently now in the market. Which is insanely fast! 

      I will recommend this smartphone series for anyone. I just recommend checking the applications you would like to use on this particular series. As some applications might not work correctly on this particular series due that it is on the HMS platform and not on the Google platform.

  5. I know almost nothing about mobile phones, and in fact, I own one that I still have not figured out how to use very well. My main problem with the one I have is the keyboard is way too small for me to see, even with my glasses on I have trouble using it. I was wondering if the Huawei Mate 40 Series come with a larger keypad, maybe they make a model for seniors?


    • Hi Jeff

      Thank you for your comment!

      This site is to help and share information for users how to make the right smartphone selection. The Huawei Mate 40 series smartphone are quite big and have the abilities to make the keyboard bigger.

      My question for you is, which smartphone are you using currently? There might be a way to change the layout of the keyboard. But it depends which smartphone you currently use. Some smartphones do not have the capabilities to make such changes. The Huawei Mate 40 series smartphones luckily do have these capabilities.

  6. Many thanks for this great elaboration. This is very informative for some of us who wish the brand of our smartphones. I am a great of Samsung and that have I used all my life but your presentation on the HUAWEI MATE 40 SERIES has captivated and I wouldn’t think twice to switch to this new brand HUAWEI. I have been admiring the HUAWEI phones but I never trusted their brand. However, with their recent development and with your clarifying explanation of their recent innovation, I am amazed I also wish to congratulate you on differentiating this HUAWEI 40 Series 5G with those of other brands as per their workability as far as the 5G network is concerned.
    My only problem is the price and if I have to make a purchase, then maybe in installment. But I wish to grab my own HUAWEI MATE 40 PRO.

    • Hi Akon

      Thank you for the comment and compliment!

      The Huawei Mate 40 series smartphones are amazing with their features and all. Sadly, all premium smartphones comes with a price. But to be honest, they made this series so great, thus it makes sense the Huawei company would like to charge the smartphone’s price high due to all the hard work they did to make them. Thanks again!

  7. Thanks for sharing this review of Huawei Mate 40 series smartphone. It’s a good-looking phone with impressive specs! I don’t believe it’s available near me, otherwise I’d like to check it out in person. 

    It would be unfortunate to lose all my apps and data due to a switch to a new operating system. I like the idea of a way to give customers more choices, but this OS might not be workable for me right now. Thank you for the thorough review!

    • Hi Aly

      Thank you for your comment! 

      The Huawei Mate 40 series smartphones are really good-looking smartphones with great features. There is ways to move all your apps and data to the new Huawei Mate 40 series smartphones. Thus, you will not lose anything. However, some applications might not function 100%, thus it is important to identify which applications are at risk.

      After identifying those risked applications, we can see how to solve the problem. Hope you find this information useful and will consider to try the Huawei Mate 40 series smartphones.

  8. I just had a read at your article and i must admit, it has to be one of the most informative pages i’ve seen yet concerning a mobile phone. Usually, its just a phone company trying to sell you the greatest phone known to mankind. It’s nice for a change to read a balanced review of this phone.



    • Hi Kwidzin

      It is a pleasure. This site is to help everyone make the right smartphone selection for themselves. Glad you find this article informative. Keep an eye out for more shortly. Thank you for your comment. 🙂

  9. Thanks for this useful article!

    I’m currently on the look out for a new phone so this post has definitely been a help! I have briefly gone over the Huawei phone brand and it seems like a good brand. I think the design is definitely appealing, quite different to the usual mobiles, unique I’d say.

    I think the battery being able to refill fast is going to be the feature which might attract me to buy it! Thanks for making the decision a little easier.

    • Hi Sariyah

      Glad the post could help. If you need more assistance, please have a view on my “Find best smart phone for me”.

      It will provide a guide how to make sure you select the right smart phone for yourself. Thank you for comment and hope you will purchase the right smart phone for you shortly. 🙂

  10. Honestly, I do not like this phone already because it’s an Apple, and me and Iphone’s are not friends.  I just have such a hard time operating them.  My preference would be an android phone over an Apple any day.  Even if it’s not as good as this phone because it’s easier for me to use, and I can function with it.  So, I wouldn’t buy this phone.

    • Hi Niesha

      Sadly, I have to correct you here. But Huawei Mate 40 series is a android smart phone. Nothing like Apple at all. Its exactly like any other android smart phone. Only one big difference factor, it is based on a HMS (Huawei Mobile System) and not on GSM (Google Service Mobile) platform.

      My following article will explain more in detail of these different platforms on smart phones. Thus, I would suggest keep an eye out for that. Thank you for your comment and I would suggest maybe view the Huawei Mate 40 series smart phones in person at a store near you to see how it operates. You will not regret it.
