Taking work on the road with the Huawei Mate 8
Do you remember when ‘business’ was only conducted in an ‘office’? Or when, if you wanted to get work done on the road, you needed a laptop? Those were the bad old days. In 2016 more than ever, the not so humble mobile phone is a vital part of a business, enabling people to work wherever they are and regardless of what they need to do. The Huawei Mate 8 is designed to be perfect device for taking the office, out of the office.
Connectivity forms the core of an essential mobile business machine and in this regard the Huawei Mate 8 delivers. If you need to be making and receiving calls, it has you covered with its dual SIM slots, excellent signal reception and support for up to 4 2G bands, 9 3G bands and 18 4G bands to connect to most networks worldwide on more frequencies than ever before. This wide range of mobile bands also helps ensure you have mobile data coverage wherever you need to work and is supplemented by dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2 with BLE. If you can’t get connected with your Mate 8… you probably can’t get connected with anything.
The Huawei Mate 8 includes support for functioning as a WiFi hotspot, should you need to connect your business laptop to the Internet but no WiFi is available. This enables Internet usage at up to LTE speeds and with its huge battery, you can use the Mate 8 in this mode without fear of running out of power later in the day.
The Huawei Mate 8 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the latest release of Android, and includes the Google Play Store for downloading applications. With well over 1 million apps available in the store, the tools you need to run your business effectively are sure to be available, including a full Microsoft Office suite, Skype, Slack and Podio. The built in Chrome web browser provides a no compromise, desktop-class web experience on your phone too.
However your team or your clients need to get hold of you, the Mate 8 makes sure you are connected, whenever you need to be.
On the move
If you spend a lot of time in the car, the Huawei Mate 8 can still be your ideal business tool. Support for Quick Charge 2.0 means that you can replenish your phone’s battery quickly with a compatible charger. Bluetooth support enables connection to all integrated car hands free systems (or a Bluetooth headset if desired) and the Mate 8 also supports Android Auto, which enables selected Android apps on your compatible car’s infotainment display.
With Google Maps included free of charge on the Mate 8 providing turn by turn mapping with live traffic incidents and Google Now integration with your work or personal calendar, you have no reason not to be on time anywhere again!
While using your Huawei Mate 8 as your ultimate mobile office is a fantastic experience, it means the device will contain a lot of important data that you wouldn’t want to fall in to the wrong hands. Thankfully, you are covered – not only does the Mate 8 have a rear mounted, lightning fast fingerprint sensor to prevent unauthorised access, the device is also fully encrypted and can be tracked or factory reset online using the Android Device Manager tools (or your corporate BYOD tools).
