I am am in Kenya, and I got this phone from Huawei USA, 8 months ago. It works great with Kenya Sim card and I didn't have to do anything. The best is the battery, everything else is works great.
Adam, 09 Jun 2015Is there a smaller version of this phone, 5 inch max, with the same battery life?There are phones with the same battery life, but not the same size battery. You can't fit a 4050 mAh battery in a 5 inch phone very easily, unless you really conserve on space with the camera and processor.
FYI, the LL5.1 update has been officially posted for the Mate2. Not an OTA update yet.
Okay, so I was highly skeptical about this phone, priced at $349 in Canada.
I did some homework, then went down to my Wind Mobile Store in Calgary and took it for a test drive.
I walked out with one and only had to part with $200 and no contract. I am also on a plan for $64 a month that covers me for voice and text unlimited in Canada and The USA.
BUT I digress
I am using this phone for 2 weeks now and LOVE it! This is what Apple should have evolved into but did NOT!
Easy to use and best of all. I don't travel with my laptop or ipad anymore this is IT!

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.

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.
