Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G Smartphone - Hands On (CES 2014)

what's up guys we're at the Hawaii both during CES and I'm gonna be checking out the recently announced ascent made to 4G trying to build off at success in China Hawaii is trying to bring it to a new level the main focus of this phone is LTE connectivity for carriers such as AT&T and t-mobile this phone is also running Android 4.3 under its emotion UI 2.0 the custom skin brings some enhancements to stock I enjoy like the dongle here now I'll let you do a host of things like open up window application settings and even make your phone one at optimal settings another feature we can see here is a one-hand mode that puts the keyboard to either the left or right side for easy one-handed use on this massive 6.1 inch display this feature will be present wherever the keyboard can be accessed holding down the home screen will allow the user to select from various options like changing the wallpaper adding widgets altering transitions and accessing the simple home UI which we will go into later sliding down from the top we can see the Notification Center does have quick toggles as well as an easy way to dismiss multiple notifications at once this phone will also come running Android 4.3 when released and its specs are not what you would expect to see from a flagship with a 1.6 gigahertz Snapdragon 400 CPU two gigs of RAM and a 720p display it is dwarfed by the competition that are running much faster chipsets and 1080p displays taking a look at the recently used apps menu we can see that it is fairly similar to stock Android with the exception of the cleanup button at the bottom that will exit all running applications which is a welcome addition even though the animation is fairly slow to execute the device on the other hand feels plasticky in hand and reminds us of a pre node3 Samsung device with an all plastic body and unsparing design there isn't much to talk about here the phone is also on the thicker side but this is needed to accompany the massive 4050 millions per hour battery which can also recharge other devices when plugged into micro USB port on the bottom we have a five megapixel front facing camera and on the back we have our 13 megapixel sensor the device is very glitchy when we were using it but that can be because it wasn't a final sale unit taking a look at the camera reveals all K results but nothing to rave about we will get more into the detail but the camera once we get ourselves a unit to review and finally let's take a look at simple home and easy to use home screen I will place the stock one with big icons and not much going on this would be perfect for anyone that would rather prefer a simple to use interface and now will conclude a quick look at the ascend may 2 for G be sure to hit that subscribe button if you haven't already if you're interested in more CES coverage or other cool tech videos this is the tech source and we'll see you next time
