Description

Huawei Ascend Mate is made to replace your phone, tablet, laptop, camera and so on, with one converging device, but we'll leave to Mr Market to decide whether this can be done via a 6.1" smartphone successfully enough Apparently Huawei couldn't ring the manufacturer which produces Full HD displays at that size, and made do with 1280 x 720 pixels HD resolution for the IPS screen. The screen also sports the "Magic Touch" tech, allowing you to use it with gloves on. The upside of the "mere" HD resolution is that there aren't as many pixels to push for the GPU, and a homebrew 1.5 GHz quad-core Hi-Silicon K3V2 processor is powering the handset, which should mean no slouch, as the K3V1 in the Ascend D was pretty fast in the first place. The phone can be considered compact for the screen, thanks to the on-screen navigation buttons, and the 163.5 mm x 85.7 mm x 9.9 mm (6.5" x 3.4" x 0.4") chassis, but will still feel awkward to hold with one hand at that size, and at 198g of weight. On the plus side, Huawei has equipped it with the largest ever stock battery in a smartphone at 4050 mAh, so that you can keep watching movies on the subway for 10 hours, promises the company.
