Domonique, 09 Aug 2014Great phone, some have complained about service access, I honestly don't think these people h... moreDevice does have weak connections especially GPS....but also network connection will cut out at times..
Great phone, some have complained about service access, I honestly don't think these people have this phone. This phone uses the same radio as the Sony Xperia series and connect to any networks 4G service Ala T-Mobile AT&T Metro PCS, it's battery alone sells the phone which I've use heavily without charge for 2 days, so overall this phone is a great product for anyone looking for a reliable option.
is this phone be able to open/view documents like in the PDF format or JPG or WORD
Avoid this crap. I just got the phone but found it cannot connect to a mobile network when I turn off Wi-Fi after it stays on Wi-Fi for some time. It cannot connect to a mobile network even after I re-start the device. This is over-hyped crap.
hello Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G users, how was the phone? is it worth to spend my money? what are the pros and cons of this phone, thanks for your reply
Quite good for me esp the price stand on the middle range phone. Just fix the call volume so ican hear opponent loud n clear enough. Beside that i got nothing to complain about.
IAm having issues with Push notifications.. Like hike messenger doesnt push any notifications, I have to open app every time.. Also facebook doesnt send me a notification if some one likes the pics or so.. Any idea.. Other wise the phone is amazing.
The phone looks pretty. I used the phone without recharging for 3 days, while I frequently browsed internet and watched two movies (~3 hours).
The screen resolution is good enough for human eyes. It is hard to visualize difference in pixel density between the ~245 ppi screen of this phone and those high-end ~450 ppi full HD screens, such as those of Galaxy S4 and LG G2.
The phone does not heat up at all unless I play some games which demand a lot of processing. To be honest, I do not recommend you playing games on any smartphone, as they are good at draining power and therefore will eventually kill the batteries.
The phone runs apps as fast as (maybe even faster than) all the high-end phones despite its suboptimal CPU, probably because it does not need to support full-HD display. The 2 G RAM is more than enough for this phone. Usually, there is more than 1 G RAM free, while Galaxy S4 and LG G2 are often on the edge of being short of RAM memory. That is probably why Galaxy S5 and LG G3 now have 3 G RAM installed.
Overall, I think the hardwares are well combined to allow excellent performance, although individually only the ~4000 mAh battery represents the best of its kind on the market. I highly recommend you buying a phone with a high-capacity battery rather than a power-draining super-high resolution screen which cannot be well appreciated by human eyes.
The only thing which bothers me a little is the power key on the side of the phone as I frequently hit it unintentionally. It would be better to redesign it to respond over double or triple clicks. Is it possible to write up an app to accomplish this?
when will this available here in the Philippines? i have been using the Ascend Mate 1, and it is really an amazing phone. so i am hoping the upgraded version will be the best. another question is; how come those units that are sold in the USA only have 3900 mAh of battery? will it also be the same battery capacity that will be sold in asia, specifically in the Philippines? i hope still huawei will maintain the same battery capacity and all the specs posted here, if will be sold in the philippines, and i am hoping, soon it will arrive here. some one can answer please? thanks
