If you want all the bells and whistles for a bargain price this phone is not for you. My HAM2 is middle of the road, reliable, great battery which is the best in any mobile device I've ever owned and at a great price you'll love this phone
Use an iPod or iPad charger and it will charge much faster...about half the time.

Anyone please tell me. How much time Huawei Mate 2 takes to charge from 0% to 100%??
I bought it yesterday and its taking a lot of time
Does any USA seller has any offer with Mate 2 for this Thanksgiving 2014?
Yes! Very happy to hear the announcement that Mate 2 will be getting Android 5.0!
I honestly didn't think it would get any update at all, and was still happy with my phone.
Obviously Huawei took user feedback seriously, and is committed to doing business in North America.

Since they are not going to support (no further updates etc) this phone you can dump this one. Their one big push in the US market with the mate 2 is FAIL. They need to go back to China those people are used to being screwed over.

I have already received one OTA update from Huawei that corrected a mp3 playing conflict, that update also improved camera performance.
I really enjoy my HAM2, performance and battery life are outstanding. How long have you had your HAM2?
