Why Can't All Smartphone Boxes Be Side-Loading Like the Huawei P8?

By Matt Hill on at

It's rare that a smartphone's box is cause for comment. But if the atypical top-loader is getting a bit Betamax, this unique side-loading number from Huawei for the P8 is pure VHS.

Yes, we are fully aware you will never even look at the box again once you've ripped your phone from its stomach, but look at it! 

Rising stylishly and smugly from its glossy plastic hideaway, it's almost cool enough to make you forget the P8 Max's HTC Dot View case "homage".

Almost.
