@SnarkyPlatypus I haven’t been following it, but I seem to recall there were several layers to all this.

Australia really does have some excellent ways to describe political tactics. Although the “reverse ferret” is British, I think.

@NuclearAnthro @chrisjoregan Not familiar with the political-tactical term “throw a dead cat on the table”? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lynton_Cr…

@G33K3 @jodiem Heh. Huawei getting the Google deal to make the Nexus was one hell of a coup.

@G33K3 @jodiem Well I’ve got this one installing now, but I wont get the chance to play with the camera properly for a couple days yet.

via TweetDeck in reply to G33K3

@G33K3 @jodiem Oh I was using the Mate 7 and loved it. Until I dropped it once too often. Nice piece of kit.

via TweetDeck in reply to G33K3

@G33K3 @jodiem Heh. I’m mostly joking. While it’s handy to have an Android as well as the Other Kind Of Phone, I have your P8 Lite. ;)

@dsturnbull Well I’m only just setting up the device, so I don’t know yet. I never noted any particular problem with the Mate 7.

@max_au @jodiem @G33K3 I can understand your annoyance. Huawei’s approach seems to be Put A Motherlovin’ Big Battery In It.

Huawei Mate 8 battery is 4000mAh, up from 3200mAh (from memory) on the Mate 7.

@jodiem @G33K3 Well I was vary happy with the Huawei Mate 7. And Huawei also makes the Nexus 6P too, which I’m told is very good.

via TweetDeck in reply to jodiem

@jodiem Well, I signed a piece of paper to say I have to hand it back in a couple of weeks. I’ll just hope @G33K3 forgets. ;)

Hmmm. “English (AU)” is not a language yet, only “English (US)” and “English (UK)”.

Nor will I tweet imagery of the startup. I think you know what a phone starting up looks like, and it tells you nothing.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I won’t turn this into a tedious unboxing exercise. Suffice it to say, the sense of luxury for a flagship model is there.
