Huawei Ascend P2 to have 4.7 inch, 720p screen

0. phoneArena posted on 21 Feb 2013, 11:03

It had been assumed that the Huawei Ascend P2, the waterproof and dustproof successor to the Huawei Ascend P1, would have a 5 inch FHD screen joining the other devices with a pixel density of 441ppi; as it turns out, the head of the company's mobile division, Richard Yu, says that a FHD screen is wasted on a screen under 5 inches...

The Huawei Ascend D2, the dust and waterproof aluminum phone with 3000mAh battery everybody seem to forgot about is Huawei's 5" fullHD flagship. FullHD at 4,7" is a (battery) overkill.

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!!

He said they were noobs once, not that they are now. They did release the first Android phone, but like any other company releasing their first device for an OS, they were noobs.

I will repeat myself from a previous post regarding this outfit:

Over-speced amateur spy radio with a horrid track record on support and reliability.

Buy at your own risk.

"Huawei" translates to "Hot Trash" in the Queen's English.
