Battery runtime; Powerful SoC; Bright screen; LTE ready; Good primary camera; Build quality

Memory cannot be expanded; Too low contrast; Tight working memory capacity; Non-removable battery; Load temperature

The runtime is sometimes longer than Samsung's Galaxy S4 despite a lower battery capacity.

Huawei Ascend P2 Review


The Huawei Ascend P2 is marketed as the fastest LTE phone money can buy, and is a member of a mid-range category, but has a drool-worthy specs sheet. A quad-core processor powers the Ascend P2, while a 4.7-inch LCD display graces its front and a 13MP...

Beautiful 720p display ; Slim and light ; Support for 150Mbps LTE speeds ; Rich video file format support

No microSD card slot for storage expansion ; 1080p video looks average at best ; Power and volume buttons are a bit uncomfortable to press

All in all, the Huawei Ascend P2 is an okay mid-range Android smartphone. It is far from being the ultimate device of this class, but it gets the job done and it doesn't have any major drawbacks, save for the inexplicable lack of a microSD card slot....

Huawei Ascend P2 – Almost Fast and Furious


Besides its claim to be the world's fastest 4G LTE smartphone, does the Huawei Ascend P2 have any more tricks up its sleeves? We find out in this review if it lives up to its billing and more.

Slim and lightweight ; Excellent battery performance ; Bright and sharp display ; Decent imaging quality

Slightly sluggish performance ; Does not offer significant 4G speed boost ; No memory card slot - only 16GB built-in ; Glossy plastic back

By all accounts, Huawei achieved the same degree of success with the Ascend P2 as it did for the Ascend P1 a year ago. The Ascend P2 may not have the latest and best specifications on paper, but it delivered a pretty decent overall performance.

If you’re looking for a reasonably cheap Android smartphone with a 4G data connection, Huawei wants your attention. The Ascend P2 is designed to compete with high-end smartphones without breaking the bank.

Huawei Ascend P2 - Pocket-lint


The Huawei P1 was a phone we very much liked. It took Huawei away from its fairly safe designs and into uncharted territory. A bold step for a company

Decent style, solid battery life, decent camera, good screen, custom UI is pleasant enough

Not that cheap, a bit laggy and slow, lacks the glamour of even an older iPhone or SGS

Small, light, pleasant to look at and packed with a decent screen and powerful processor. On the surface, the Huawei looks like the perfect purchase for many. The truth, however, is that it doesn't quite meet the spec with its performance. There's more...

Huawei Ascend P2 review


Huawei aims to rise to new heights with this record breaking handset

Decent specs ; Smooth operation ; Solid design ; Good camera

UI looks childish ; Average battery life ; No microSD slot ; Rubbish keyboard

So what's the world's fastest smartphone? The Samsung Galaxy S4? HTC One? iPhone 5? Wrong, wrong and wrong - if you're talking about mobile data speeds the Huawei Ascend P2 is the unlikely hero stealing the crown.

Huawei Ascend P2 review


The design is minimalist but a little on the plastic side. Build quality is good and despite the plastic (yet unremovable) rear cover, the P2 does feel solid in the hand.

The Huawei's Ascend P2's main attraction in some parts of the world may be the Category 4 LTE chip but its talents are wasted here in the UK. This leaves it as another typical Android smartphone albeit with an above-average camera. UK users may like to...
