Now, though, it's time to start paying attention. Those security fears have largely died down. The company itself is now the third-biggest smartphone maker in the world, behind only Samsung and Apple, and gaining ground at that. It's starting its heaviest push yet to compete here in the West.
Most importantly, it now has a phone that can actually compete with the iPhones, Galaxys, and Pixels of the world. The Mate 9, as it's called, won't be outselling those behemoths, but it is a strong, high-end choice for Android fans, particularly those aching for a big-phone replacement for their Galaxy Note 7. (RIP.) If you need an especially beefy display and battery, it's near the top of its niche.
At $600, it's anywhere from $50-150 easier on the wallet, too. Let's take a closer look.
