Huawei Ascend Mate, which is Huawei’s answer to the Samsung Note series, is another addition to the line of phablets that we are beginning to see. While the specs are fairly decent, Huawei still has to make a mark on the UK Market, and this is a step in the right direction for them.
Vodafone in the UK have bagged exclusive rights to sell this, and this can be yours from £29/month, including 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data. Alternatively, you can have it for £300 on the Pay as you go deal.
The phone features a 6.1″ HD Display, 1.5GHz Quad Core display, and Android 4.1.
Huawei’s Emotion UI is also one of the few ‘skins’ that actually are almost as clean as the original Android UI, and only adds very little to it, hence not forcing you to want to root it the moment you get it.
Other features include an ultrabright display, a screen you can use with gloves on, an 8MP camera, and ability to put in a MicroSD card. All this, with a 4050mAh battery.
Huawei Ascend Mate
now available exclusively at launch from Vodafone UK
The NEW Huawei Ascend Mate combines all the benefits of an almost tablet sized screen with the convenience of a slim and compact handset, designed to fit easily into your pocket or handbag.
Available exclusively at launch from Vodafone UK, the Huawei Ascend Mate is free for £29 per month (including 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data) for pay monthly customers and £300 for pay as you go customers. As well as the super-sized 6.1 inch HD display it packs a powerful 1.5GHz quad core processor and runs on Android Jellybean 4.1 for both speed and seamless browsing.
With Huawei’s Emotion UI, you can customise your new device as you wish, and what’s more you can use it anywhere and at any time. Its highly-sensitive IPS touchscreen is not only designed to cope with almost all light conditions, the unique Magic Touch technology means you can even use it with your gloves on.
Designed for both work and play, you can move the Huawei Ascend Mate’s keyboard to the side of the screen for one handed typing – whether you’re writing emails or updating Facebook – and the 8MP camera with Full HD recording and playback is great for capturing and re-living all those memorable moments.
There’s also loads of memory and a durable battery so you can store and enjoy films, games and entertainment when you’re on the go.
