Nice specification but not an OIS camra which is the big drawback of Huawei mobiles.

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)
