Huawei Ascend P2 to have 4.7 inch, 720p screen

Why isn't Huawei going with a 5 inch FHD screen? We did just see HTC go from the 5 inch HTC DROID DNA/HTC Butterfly to the 4.7 inch HTC One. But in that case, the Taiwan based manufacturer kept the FHD display for an amazingly high pixel density of 468ppi. But Yu says that this is not necessary since the human eye cannot differentiate between a 720p panel and a 1080p screen on glass smaller than 5 inches. In addition, a higher-resolution screen would eat up more power, shortening battery life.
4.7 inch 720p display. It will still be water and dustproof and the lower-res screen allows Huawei to more easily get the phone under 6.45mm in size. If using the smaller 720p screen means a thinner device with better battery life, it is a trade-off that Richard Yu felt that buyers would gladly make, especially if no one could really tell the difference between FHD and 720p with a screen under 5 inches.
The Huawei Ascend P2 will be one of the new handsets to be unwrapped at MWC in Barcelona. If you want to know what is happening at MWC, keep your eyes right here!

More Android saturation. There phones will sell well overseas, but not in the states. People should stick with HTC, Samsung, Moto, Google Nexus for the best Android experience and timely updates.

Guess what, HTC, Samsung and Motorola were Android noobs once and Huawei already demonstrated that it has the means and desire to follow their footsteps. Of Huawei's line-up, I'm looking forward to the octa-core 5" variant coming out later this year. With the power consumption of the announced A15 chipsets and the big batteries Huawei puts in it's 2013 phones, they're likely to come out on top in performance per battery ratio.

Especially updates! I got the Huawei Ideos S7 tablet, running Android 2.1 but never received a official update to 2.2 in Europe, altough the device was officially sold in shops. Luckely I found a 2.2 update on a Indonesian forum. The only one ever released for the Ideos S7 though.... My advise is to stay away from any Huawei device!!
