Description

Huawei Ascend P2 will have a major selling point being one of the thinnest big-screen handsets out there at 8.4 mm only. Powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, the Ascend P2 features a sufficiently large 4.7" HD 720p screen, eschewing the Full HD trend of late, which is hardly a big deal. The other specs are 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, a 13 MP camera on the back and a 2420 mAh battery. The handset also features a homebrew LTE radio capable of going up to 150 Mbps download speeds - if your network provider can supply them, that is. Ascend P2 runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Huawei's own Emotion UI on top.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
