Owned for almost a year. Not the fastest, but fast enough. Not the sharpest screen but sharp enough. Best value in a phablet. Have had 0 issues. Great battery and screen large enough for e-reading.
I really love my AM2 for its battery life, it is really as good as it claims! I use it as an ereader and don't need a fast processor to play games. My only peeve is that the three capacitive buttons eat up a lot of real estate of the screen. I wish they put them outside the screen in their own designated area.
Is there a smaller version of this phone, 5 inch max, with the same battery life?

LG doesn't really impress me because I've had 2 of them and they both had psychotic breaks within a year (can't locate the network, VMs don't send or arrive immediately even with a network connection, screen times out after about 3 seconds (set for 15)). I'm trying this phone because I've seen blisteringly positive reviews. It looks like a great big, fat, gorgeous, greasy-fast little beasty.

I own a mate2 and I have to say that I choosed this phone over the other brands like iPhone, moto, Samsung, etc, because its design, performance and cost. The mate2 is as good as any other brand phone because it never lags in performance, speed, runs great, it costed me 299dlls and that makes it a better choice, I can play games, text, call, surf web, install apps and games, the camera is excellent it has many functions, I wouldn't pay what other brands cost because what Huawei offers here it doesn't make you think twice, I totally recommend this cell phone.
I bought a HAM2 from Consumer Cellular and really like it. Now I am going to France and Germany and the website says their phones don't work outside of the U.S. Can't I take it and buy a European SIM card and still use it while I am there?

My Mate 2 does everything; calls, text, movies, browsing the web on LTE, playing games, etc... as good as my wife's Note 4 and my daughter iPhone 6 plus. If you want Lollypop, it's coming to the Mate 2 this summer, but that's not going to change the phone it self, just change the look and feel a bit.
Alright so recently I owned a Blckbrry and decided that I needed an upgrade. When I went for one I thought I'd give this phone a try. The results, I'm not a fan at all. While the phone does have its perks, everyone knows the monster of a screen,and the long battery life, it has some major draw backs. For me size isn't a problem, anyone who complains about it is just complaining because they realized they messed up getting a phone too big for them (I'm 6'5"). If you can't handle a big phone don't buy a big phone, simple. The problem I have with this phone is the fact that It resets constantly. The outdated OS is just too weak for today's world. If you just want a phone for texts and calling, this is your ideal. But if you have any intention of using apps, music, internet, forget it not gonna happen.
If you want a phone that will have everyone in the room intrigued at its sure mass this is the one. But if you want a reliable phone that operates with the rest of the competition forget it. There's a reason no one else in the room knows what a Huawei is.

I def made the right choice! China made phones will be our future, as soon as ppl broaden their horizons! I just hope these China made phones dont get greedy n jack up the prices to ridiculous costs like iphone, samsung etc! As long as costs are reasonable I will def continue buying! Great job HAM2!!!! Love my phone!!!
if you upgrade to 4.4.2 kk and didn't get the correct google apps its likely going to crash and boot loop try doing a factory reset if that does not work the only other option is rooting it and installing custom recovery and re installing original firmware
Hey you all,
I am doing a beta test on this huawie phone right know to see if me and my father would like it so far I am really impressed. I use to be a die hard Samsung and LG kind of guy. but dam they put to much of a price tag on there phone's for how many problems persisted on the Samsung and LG, line. this phone has really impressed me its big open screen. fast core, lighting fast touch respond. and how you can look at you e mails and facebook and see what everyone and everything is doing. and taking a picture. other then DAM need I say more. if your looking for a good fast phone that wont hurt your wallet. and help your pried when it wont freeze when your showing it to friend's and family get this. but I always say test it before you take it and love it.

Those other phones with the size of this one costs way too much! For a phone of this size, this price, this works for people like me!

annalee, 04 Feb 2015I have a Bluetooth connection and it works great with the phone calls. When I play my music it... moreBluetooth unit comes with different profile. To listen to music, our bluetooth device must be enabled with A2DP profile. Most of the bluetooth devices support just handsfree profile where you can receive calls. This is nothing to do with HAM2. I hope this resolves your doubt about not listening to music.
