Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G review


A big phone for big thumbs

One-handed phablet use ; Faster and lighter overall ; Panoramic selfies

Snapdragon 600 looks outdated ; 720p screen ; 6.1-inch screen may be too big for some

Images look good and so does the screen

Huawei Ascend Mate 2 review


The only smartphone that can charge your other USB devices

Apparently the display is far more battery-efficient than equivalent Full HD displays. This is also thanks to its Low-Temperature Poly-Silicon technology, which is 20-30% more power efficient than typical IPS screens. It also comes with...

Hands on: Huawei Mate 8 March 10th, 2016 | by Wilson Wong Cellphones 0


The Mate 8 shows how far Chinese vendors have come in designing not just budget models but also those aimed at the high end of the market.

Huawei Mate 8 (64GB, mocha brown)


The Mate 8 isn't expected to come to the US.

Huawei's Mate 8's battery life goes on and on, it snaps good photos and has a fast, accurate fingerprint sensor and a loud speakerphone.

This ginormous 6-inch phone is just too unwieldy for smaller hands. It has a dim screen and a low resolution compared with other phones.

The huge, metal Huawei Mate 8 has plenty of appeal and only minor drawbacks, but it's too expensive to sway fans of large-screen phones from the Nexus 6P or Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

Huawei Ascend Mate 2 review


With a massive 6.1-inch screen and a battery to match, the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 has plenty to offer, even if its size and middling specs will turn some would-be buyers away.

The Huawei Ascend Mate 2 won’t be universally loved, mainly because its screen size is controversial and it isn’t exactly a high-end device on paper. However, the Mate 2 proves that a smartphone doesn’t necessarily have to come with the latest and...

Huawei Ascend Mate2 review: No-contract, low price phone that lasts forever


Huawei launched their first phone selling directly in the US with the Ascend Mate2 and it is quite compelling at a low $299.99 unlocked, no-contract price.

I did not expect much from the Ascend Mate2 due to the low price with reasonably high-end specifications. The construction is quite impressive though and the battery life is stunning. I have come to like the Emotion UI that combines widgets from...

Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G review: Value king


The Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G is a landmark for the manufacturer in the United States. The 6.1" LTE phablet is the first device, which the company will offer in the country as a standalone OEM, via its own online store, without partnering with a wireless...

6.1" 720p IPS+ LCD display with Gorilla Glass 3, usable with gloves; 79% screen to body ratio ; Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with Emotion UI 2.0 ; 1.6GHz Cortex-A7 quad-core CPU, Adreno 305 GPU; Qualcomm MSM8928 Snapdragon 400 chipset; 2GB of RAM ; 16GB of...

Android 4.3 is already an outdated OS choice in mid-2014 ; Emotion UI 2.0 might not fit all tastes ; No changes in design since the previous generation ; No NFC

After spending plenty of quality time with it, we can safely conclude that the Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G proved to be exactly what we expected. By combining quality mid-range specs headed by a large IPS display, a beefy battery with outstanding endurance,...

Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G LTE


Huawei's 6.1-inch Ascend Mate 2 4G LTE offers a big display and nearly 15 hours of battery for just $299 without a contract, making it a strong value.

Affordable no-contract price; Incredibly long battery life; Doubles as device charger; Big and vibrant display

Relatively low-resolution screen; Interface can feel cluttered; Camera struggles in low light
