Review Huawei Ascend Mate Smartphone

 

Big, bigger, Huawei Ascend Mate. Although officially a smartphone, the Huawei Ascend Mate could pass easily as a tablet with its 6.1-inch display. But as the test shows, the XXL phone has quite a bit more to offer than just its imposing screen.

Very large 6.1-inch display, High-quality workmanship, Very bend and torsion resistant, Precise and bright touchscreen, Large viewing angle stability, Up to 21 Mbit/s in UMTS network, supports LTE, Good performance for games and applications, Very good...

Reflective surface, Image quality of cameras only average, Occasional quiet extraneous noise while phoning with landlines, Moderate speaker sound, A better quality main camera. A resolution of 8 MP isn't everything – the Ascend Mate doesn't take bad...

Huawei Ascend Mate review: Gentle giant

 

Huawei are making sure they're taken seriously as a phone maker. They're actually well past the newcomer stage and, with a market the size of China behind them, Huawei's appetite will only be growing bigger to compete with the establishment.

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE; penta-band 3G with HSPA ; 6.1" 16M-color 720p IPS+ LCD capacitive touchscreen with Gorilla Glass, Magic Touch, usable with gloves ; Android OS v4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Emotion UI ; Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A9, 16-core GPU; Huawei...

Big, even for a phablet ; No homescreen auto-rotation ; Non user-replaceable battery ; No NFC ; Outdated CPU architecture

A niche pioneered by Samsung is suddenly such a busy place that the Koreans are forced to revisit it with a new strategy. Smartphone manufacturers, big and small, are keen to emulate the success of the Note lineup, without actually meaning to stand in...

Huawei Ascend Mate review: a supersized phone with supreme battery life

 

When Huawei revealed the Ascend Mate at CES this year, it felt like smartphones had reached an end point -- they surely couldn't get any larger. We've

Giant, attractive screen ; Ample battery life ; Low price

Slow ; Middling camera ; Low storage

The Ascend Mate tops them all for screen size and battery life, but it's a budget phone on the inside.

Barring the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, the Huawei Ascend Mate would have been in a league of its own. The League of Extraordinary Diagonals, that is, as the phone sports a monster 6.1” display. Huawei's largest handset, however, certainly has enough...

Ample battery capacity ; Stereo sound recording ; Pentaband radio ; Very good call quality ; Neat and functional Emotion UI ; Screen can be used with gloves on

Pictures look sharp only at the center of the frame ; Very noisy low light video capture ; Just a third of the 8 GB internal storage is user-available

With big-screen handsets, the game is to replace your phone, tablet, laptop, camera and so on, with one converging device, but we'll leave to Mr Market to decide whether this can be done via a 6.1" smartphone successfully enough.

For Rs. 24,900 you get some pretty good specifications under the hood of the Ascend Mate and a really large display. For the same price you get some really great performing devices such as the Nexus 4, Samsung Galaxy S3 and more. What the Ascend Mate...

Smooth interface, Display is good for multimedia content, Simple design, Runs games and apps smoothly

Lacklustre camera, Display resolution could be better, Uncomfortable for single hand use

The Ascend Mate may not be for everyone but for those looking at over-sized smartphones, this could be it. It's a very capable smartphone and could be an ideal replacement for a tablet-smartphone combo at a very compelling price point.

Small storage capacity ; Plastic construction ; Occasional slowness ; Screen size can be impractical

The Huawei Ascend Mate is a phone that fits the screen-size gap between the 4 to 5-inch smartphone and the seven-inch or more tablet, with a screen that could easily be described as being right in the middle of the two. Since it has to effectively pe
