I am living in Toronto, how may I buy this unit in Canada? It is not sold in Hong Kong?
Hello, I just got to know that the Mate 2 4G does not come with Google Play Store pre-installed. I was told it has to be 'rooted' before Google Play Store can be installed. Please, is this true? Has anyone who have used the Mate 1 observed this?
I have HAM, and it is perfect. Performance is great, look is very nice and never changes for almost a year now of heavy use. I even leave the phone in active hotspot for 24 hours and it does't over heat.
So I am very excited for the availability of the HAM2 in the Philippines. Am sure it is even better than its predecessor.
464.80 usD = rm1516..
hopefully it will release in Malaysia A.S.A.P...
WITH MORE CHEAPER THAN THT. ;)
I have mate the old one and I like it but looks like by the time mate 2 is actually released we might get some phone with better specs at the same cost. Its has been delayed like hell. Moreover I was expecting 1080p this time when they chose snapdragon but instead they chose to keep 720p which is a downside too.
Im currently using its predecessor for quite a while now. All I can say is it never gave me a headache.

djmarics, 21 Mar 2014when this phone available in the philipiines in mindanao area.. love the phone much..When will this be available in Metro Manila? Not yet available here in the Phils, why? I have been waiting you know.
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2014When will it b available in Malaysia market?I don't think it will be RM1,200. Already the Mate is pricing now at RM1,150 in the mobile market. I understand Mate has stopped production; so to clear the Mate stock, they have to drop it further to around RM800 to RM900 for Mate2 to sell at RM1,200. I believe RM1,400 would be a better prediction.
I have the predecessor, and I love it.
Ascend Mate [original] vs Ascend Mate 2
What's been upgraded:
* Camera 13MP (vs 8MP)
* LTE (vs HSPA+)
* CPU (faster, uses less power)
* 16GB internal (vs 8)
* Android 4.3 (vs 4.1)
* Thinner (all dimensions are smaller)
What stayed the same:
* Screen (still 6.1 720p)
* Battery (still 4,050mAh)
* RAM (still 2GB)
* Weight (about the same, gained 4 grams)
IanB, 08 Mar 2014Huawei bought out Qualcomm. Snapdragon 400 is the chipset. Expect to see more Qualcomm chipset... moreSorry, but you are mistaken. Huawei DID NOT buy out Qualcomm. Huawei uses certain Qualcomm chips along with others.
