Today, we will do a Review of the phone is Huawei Pocket S, which is the second vertical folding screen phone launched by Huawei, or it is more appropriate to call it a small folding phone. In order to better meet the tastes of contemporary young people, in addition to the small size, Huawei Pocket S can be said to be hard-working in terms of appearance design.
The first is the color upgrade! Huawei Pocket S brings a total of six color schemes, including Primrose Gold, Mint Green, Cherry Pink, Ice Crystal Blue, Obsidian Black, and Frost Silver. Each color scheme has its own unique beauty.
Huawei Pocket S also adopts the industry’s first multi-dimensional linkage lifting water drop hinge. In the folded state, the upper and lower screens can be completely attached together, and there will be no glaring gaps after folding like other folding phones. Of course, the tighter fit means the Huawei Pocket S is thinner than other foldable phones.
The small folding design not only makes the mobile phone smaller but also has a very important function, that is, you can directly use the rear camera to take selfies in the folded state.
Today’s mobile phone rear camera modules are inferior to the front camera in terms of specifications and imaging quality. Coupled with the industry-leading RYYB super-sensing sensor, Huawei Pocket S can be said to be the only one in the industry in terms of selfies. file exists!
Huawei Pocket S phone parameters are as follows
In the folded state, Huawei Pocket S looks like an exquisite small box, which is only half the size of a candy bar phone. If you don’t open it, no one will think that this is a mobile phone.
Huawei Pocket S has a total of 6 colors, and each color can make people’s eyes shine. Ours is ice crystal blue, which looks cool and cool, and feels as warm as jade to the touch.
After opening, there is a 6.9-inch flexible OLED screen, which looks no different from a 6.9-inch candy bar phone overall.
This screen supports a 120Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate, and supports 1440Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, compared with the conventional 480Hz, which greatly improves the user experience and minimizes the damage to the eyes caused by stroboscopic flicker.
The Huawei Pocket S uses the industry’s first multi-dimensional linkage lifting water drop hinge, which will not have a glaring gap after folding like other folding phones.
Huawei Pocket S has also obtained the world’s first Swiss SGS folding screen mobile phone durability certification, passing 400,000 folding tests.
It is worth opening and folding once, and it can be opened and folded 100 times a day under normal use, and it can last for 10 years. Even if it is used heavily, it can be folded 200 times a day and can be used for more than 5 years, so there is no need to worry about the life of the folding screen.
The mobile phone camera uses a dual-camera module, a 40-megapixel main camera, and a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens.
There is a 1.4-inch round OLED display under the camera, which can directly scan the code to pay, or directly read information, answer calls, etc. in the folded state. Of course, the more important thing is to support the use of rear cameras for selfies.
We all know that the front camera of a smartphone cannot accommodate large-sized CMOS sensors and lenses due to limited space. The rear COMS sensor size of mainstream mobile phones is 1 inch, but the top front sensor, such as IMX709, is only 1/2.7 inch. The difference in area between the two is a full 7 times. The gap in imaging quality can be imagined.
As a small folding mobile phone, Huawei Pocket S can do something that a straight-screen mobile phone cannot, that is, directly use the rear camera to take selfies. At this time, the rear 40-megapixel main camera, 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle and laser focus sensor can all become selfie tools.
1. Comparison of selfie quality before and after
It can be seen that whether it is texture or clarity, the rear camera is really a little stronger than the front camera.
2. Comparison of selfies in low light
The 40-megapixel main camera of the Huawei Pocket S uses the industry-leading RYYB super-sensing sensor, and the amount of light entering is 40% higher than that of traditional RGGB. Taking selfies in low light, the gap will be more obvious.
The rear camera can capture the details of the face clearly, while the front camera has lower brightness and the light on the face is not uniform.
3. Rear camera wide-angle selfie
When a few friends get together and want to take a selfie, the front camera often does not take a full picture.
Using the rear camera, double-click the small screen 2 times to switch to the ultra-wide-angle mode. At this time, even selfies have a very large field of view. If 3 or 4 people gather together to take selfies, Huawei Pocket S can capture everyone.
If you use the front lens, the range you can shoot is significantly smaller, if many people are out of the range of the lens. Compared with the front camera, it can only be said that the rear camera module is really too powerful, and it is impossible to truly perceive the difference without experiencing it.
1. Super transfer station
Huawei Pocket S is equipped with the latest version of Hongmeng operating system 3.0, and the new version adds a heavy function – super transfer station. You only need to temporarily store the text, pictures, and files to be sent in the transfer station, and you can switch to the APP and send them out at any time if you need to share them.
Files can be dragged directly from the transfer station.
Text information is saved in the clipboard and can be shared directly by dragging it out
The super transfer station supports cross-application and cross-level mixed content selection. WeChat, QQ, and even various games can directly use the super transfer station to forward messages.
2. Smart external screen function
Huawei Pocket S is equipped with a 1.4-inch OLED smart external screen, which can open notifications, phone calls, cameras, weather and other applications without unfolding, as well as payment, travel, health and other reminders.
The Huawei Pocket S external screen comes with the camera, weather, wallet, and health code functions by default. In the settings-external screen area, you can choose a small program that suits you to add. After the addition is complete, when the phone is in the folded state, you can swipe left and right to switch cards.
The external screen of the Huawei Pocket S supports the switching of various themes. You can set it yourself in the settings, and you can also fill the photos taken by the mobile phone as the external screen wallpaper. It is also very convenient to switch the theme of the external screen, just press and hold the screen and slide left and right.
Battery life and heat dissipation
The Huawei Pocket S supports 40W fast charging. According to the actual measurement, it can be charged to 20% in 6 minutes, 50% in 19 minutes, 80% in 41 minutes, and 100% in 55 minutes.
2. Battery life test
During the test, turn on the brightness at 50%, turn off the volume, and use the battery dog APP to run 3D games, videos, web browsing and other scenarios to test the battery life.
The test results showed 11% power loss in 1 hour and 34% power loss in 3 hours. According to this calculation, if it is fully charged and tested until the power is exhausted, it should last for about 9 hours.
3. Heat dissipation
I believe that many people will worry about the heating problem of folding screen mobile phones. The Huawei Pocket S uses the Snapdragon 778G processor, and its CPU power consumption is only 1.6W, which is a mobile phone processor with a very high energy efficiency ratio.
Pocket S is the first flexible graphene heat dissipation system in the industry, which increases the heat dissipation area by 62% and the heat conduction area by 80%. Even the screen and the shaft have graphene materials.
We played a game of “Honor of Kings”, which took a total of 34 minutes, turned on high frame rate + ultra-high resolution, and the game frame rate was 60FPS.
During the test, the processor temperature has not exceeded 50 degrees.
It can be seen from the thermal imaging instrument that the highest temperature on the front of the mobile phone is only 43 degrees, and the highest temperature on the back is 38.5 degrees, which is equivalent to the temperature of the hand.
Time flies so fast, 2022 feels like it has just begun and it is coming to an end, and we will soon usher in Christmas and New Year’s Eve! So for the upcoming Shuangdan Festival, if you want to choose a mobile phone to give to your relatives and friends, how should you choose!
First of all, in terms of taking pictures, because it can use the powerful rear camera to take selfies, even Xiaobai can easily take large pictures, which is something that full-screen straight phones cannot do. Students who like to take selfies, after experiencing the power of post-camera selfies, I believe it is difficult to accept using the front camera to take selfies.
In terms of general performance such as system, fluency, camera, and battery life, Huawei Pocket S is no different from straight-screen phones, but its size is half smaller, so it has a portability that straight phones can never match. This is also a small folding phone. inherent advantages.
Huawei Pocket S has an exquisite small and thin appearance like a work of art, and it looks different at first glance among the candy bar phones all over the street.
Over the years, Huawei has brought more and more new features and technologies that we have never seen before through continuous innovation and progress in the field of mobile phones. Huawei is also a pioneer when it comes to smart flip phones.
Perhaps Huawei Pocket S cannot be called a perfect small folding phone, but we should believe that Huawei’s strong research and development capabilities can bring miracles. Sooner or later, small folding smartphones will inevitably usher in a revolutionary product that leads the trend, breaking the market monopoly of straight-screen mobile phones, and even replacing them.
