after see a lot of hype the design is good for a phablet ram is good could have been 2.5 gb, looks slim, screen 720 must have been upgraded to 1080 battery is best in industry and i have used mate 1 and P6 quality seems to be good and durable phones , processor i qual com had cam has sony lences so over all 9 out of 10 price is little on higher side, 399 usd would have been ideal and good buy on a whole its worth buying this phablet if you are a gaming freek..
Guys open your eyes.....it has quad core 1.6 Ghz Snapdragon S400 processer,2Gb ram,13mp camera,6.1 inch half hd IPS display,gorilla glass and 4050 mah battery superb.....!!!
It would be good choice.....!!!
I agree with the posters who say that 720p is plenty for a phone. I can't tell the difference, so why waste the resources.
The specs of the Mate 2 are slightly better than of its predecessor, but by any means doesn't justify the price. Since the Mate 1 was released, I was thinking about buying, but even that price was too high. I got a Blu Quattro 5.7 instead, and I love this phone despite all its issues. I would love to get a Mate 2 though...for $300...
i am the owner of the huawei ascend mate phone and i say it is the best mobile i had used till now dont hesitate to buy as it provides excellant services.even when my friends with other branded mobiles suffer from several issues am so relaxed with my phone.it has a magnificeint battery back up. go go for it guys
Do not buy this phone! I am using Huawei Ascend Mate and it has GPS issues! Until now Huawei company did NOTHING to fix GPS problems of Huawei Ascend Mate. It loses GPS signal all the time and sometimes it cannot find any satellites.
toto073081, 10 Jan 2014too much talking bla bla! you cant even identify the difference between 720p and 1080p with yo... moreThat's right. Unless the phone has a screen size of 52" then I insist that it has at least 1080p to appreciate whatever screen technology it is using.
hey guys im proud to HAM1 owner ...bt sad to hear dat ham2 is not dat great i bleve same old stuff loaded wit some 4g tweaks huwei guys grew up pls get as somethmg bettr got 450usd
Except the resolution , It seems a nice phablet . Everyone have to admire that ascend mate series has excellent battery life .
toto073081, 10 Jan 2014you are right people are dying getting 1080p then will complain that the battery drains so fas... moreit seems you dont know what 1080p is at all.
1080p is like bluray and 720p is a normal hd so why everyone buy ps4 or xbox one? they can play with playstation 1 too.
your words show us you just wanted to post a comment which is funny for most of us.
funny, realyy funny, after those lots of advertisments on facebook and other websites they released a phone with no update from mate 1, why should someone pays usd 450 for this? to buy an old specifications in a new design?
This is a huge disappointment. Absolutely no improvement I regret buying the Ascend M8 judging from this there will be no 4.3 or Kitkat Update for Mate 1
Serioulsy I had pegged my hopes on Ascend Mate 2 Huawei needs to contact me I can design the next phone for them that could be the phone everyone would want
Hi, this is not an opinion but a question, what are the 4G bands does ascend mate 2 support?
danielph, 06 Jan 2014I just bought Huawei ascend mate 1 2 Weeks ago now they have a new one !! I feel like i lost m... moremost probably they will jump to 4.4 for ascend mate recently there is official release of firmware b708 4.2.2. 4.3 almost the same just a few add on on 4.3 but the rest the same with 4.2.2.
Anonymous, 08 Jan 20141280x720 is perfect resolution fo 5-6 inch display , x2,6 times less rendering for games you are right people are dying getting 1080p then will complain that the battery drains so fast! 720p is good choice as what Richard Yu CEO insisting that they will be staying at 720p rsolution! but this time on LTPS LCD which more vivid colors and power-saving lcd
too much talking bla bla! you cant even identify the difference between 720p and 1080p with your naked eye?why 1080p? if resolutions seems alike at least you can power! what samsung and other manufacturers did? they will go back to the basic!720p is emough for mobile!
This is 720P, blabla...! The only thing is, you're only a human,not a fr--king eagle. you'd be glad Huawei didn't treat you like 14yr old, slam 1080P at twice the cost to your face and drain ur battery 15-20% sooner.
