As a phone designed to help Meitu conquer the selfie world, the T8 features a unique hexagonal design and a powerful front camera. It retails for about $480 (or around £385 and AU$630) in China, though be prepared to fork out a slight premium from online resellers.
The rear of the phone features a curved metal design that feels pretty luxurious.
The rear 21-megapixel camera takes up a very prominent spot on the back, but it lacks features from the front camera, such as phase detection autofocus and optical image stabilization.
The phone uses a modern USB Type-C connection.
I like how slim the phone looks and the rounded edges make for a comfortable grip.
The front selfie camera is where the action is, and features a 12-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization, dual-pixel phase detection autofocus and f1.8 aperture. When taking selfies, you can select how much beautification you require, though that will leave you looking really smooth and freaky.
The hexagonal design of the phone is pretty unique.
The front fingerprint button is a physical button that you can press, unlike the iPhone's, which uses haptic technology to simulate the feel you get when you press a button.
