Apple v Huawei: who delivered?

6 0 0

OPINION: Make no mistake, this was a big week for technology.

Apple, as per, grabbed the majority of the headlines with its move into the subscriptions world.

Huawei, meanwhile, launched a new smartphone that's got the best camera I've ever seen on a mobile device.

Which company will be happier with how the week went? It's really hard to say. It's like comparing, er, apples and oranges. The problems and opportunities Apple and Huawei face are entirely different.

* Beneath the Apple razzmatazz is an air of desperation
* It's pricey but worth it - Huawei's new phone actually does what it says it will

Apple is an established brand that's benefited from a decade of unparalleled growth. And its devices, especially the iPhone, are loved by a loyal one-billion strong customer base.

Huawei, on the other hand, is still very much in growth phase (compared to Apple) and it's fair to say, has a bit of a PR problem right now.

Which company will be happier with their new innovations? This one is easier to call.

Apple hasn't really created anything new. It has just put its logo and spin on technologies and services that already exist. Something Apple is really good at.

Huawei, on........
