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.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 315 ppi
  • 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.
