Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G Review – Other than ZTE and Lenovo, the other Chinese brand that has taken the mobile world by storm is Huawei and after what they showed at CES, many are convinced that they will continue doing so for a few more years to come. While they showcased quite a few devices, the most interesting had to be their flagship the Ascend Mate 2 4G.
The Ascend Mate 2 4G was easily one of the largest smartphones on display as it sports a 6.1-inch 720p IPS display. The device will be available in two variants, the first being powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and the other Huawei’s very own HiSilicon 1.6GHz quad-core processor. Besides that little difference, both variants will come with 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and a 4,050mAh battery.
It may already sport a very large capacity battery but Huawei says that this device can easily last up to 2.5 days on a single charge thanks to the patented QPC and ADRX smart-power saving technology implemented in this device. Other features of the Ascend Mate 2 4G include a 13-megapixel rear BSI camera with f/2.0 aperture and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.4 aperture. The device also support LTE CAT 4 connectivity and will be able to achieve download speeds of up to 150Mbps. Another neat feature of this giant of a phone is also the ability to switch between Huawei’s Emotion UI 2.0 and Simple UI.
