Ascend Mate Android 4.2.2 B906 Official Firmware Released
Well actually we are little bit late to bring this news to you. Huawei has released Android 4.2.2 Emotion UI 1.6 B906 official firmware for the Chinese version of Ascend Mate. However as you might already know Chinese versions can be installed on the international Ascend Mate MT01-U06 without having any problems. However we strongly urge you not to flash this if you don’t know what you are doing.
This new firmware brings bug fixes to the previous official B905 firmware which is already an excellent ROM for the Ascend Mate. Numbered as V100R001CHNC00B906 this B906 ROM is intended for the China Unicom Ascend Mate MT01-T00. Changelog mentions that B906 includes stability improvements, crash fixes and security fixes compared to the previous B905. You can set the language to English after the installation.

I would like to share my experience with this nice device Huawei Ascend Mate. When I planned to buy a smartphone, I found this device is better and cheap for me. Because I studied the review in GSMARENA, the specfication and result is showing very good.(Thanks GSMAREANA Team) So I purchesed this phone last week from saudi arabia. It is very nice device,HD video shooting and photo clearity is fantastic. 1.5 QUAD core with 2GB RAM deliver fast speed, while surfing in internet. HD IPS display & Corning Gorilla Glass is the better result for viewing. Big Screen 6.1 is very good. It will go only your pant pocket, but comfortable, because of solid body construction. The shape of the mobile is looking awesome. out side of the frame is provided with metal.What else. I found the mobile is supporting the External Hard Disc Drive 1 TB. When i try to connect the HDD via OTG cable, it is read all the data with in a mint. After I opened the full HD video via BS player it is running as very smooth and no struck. seek the movie forward and backward, it is running very smooth. Even 10GB single bluray movie files are working very good. I didn't expect this one. I cancelled to buy a Laptop because this device is a laptop. Now I am very happy and proud with this device. The one of the BAD Experience is the mobile case issue. I couldn't found in market even a big mobile shop. Around 25 mobile shops I enquired. But not available. So I had to purchase samsung mega 6.3 cover and alter for suitable port like speaker, camera flash, MIC and headphone. So if you planned to purchase the mobile, buy the case immediatley.
Many sites said it has very bad performance in games n normal tasks they said it lags a lot. is it true pls. tell me i wanna buy this phone.

Do you encounter this issue:
When mate is lying flat, there are times that it becomes unresponsive.
Or sometimes when you are lying and the phone is tilted sideward, the phone becomes unresponsive also.
Do you encounter this?
