Huawei Ascend Mate


Huawei’s latest device: the Huawei Ascend Mate blurs the boundary between tablet and phone. One of the major strengths of the device is that it has a large 6.1 inch LED screen, this makes it great for viewing videos or television programmes on the go!

Although some people feel that the phablet-style devices that are flooding the mobile phone market are a little impractical, Huawei has made a considerable effort to ensure that this smartphone is suitable for everyday use. To begin with, the large screen is toughened with Corning Gorilla Glass, which protects the phone’s screen from scratches and minor drops. As well as being super tough the screen is also super-sensitive, which means that you can still operate you smartphone with thick gloves on– very helpful considering the oncoming cold weather! In addition, though the Huwaei Ascend Mate is certainly a big phone, it is big device that is comfortable to use. This is because the Huawei Ascend Mate has a minimized keyboard, which means that it is possible to operate the smartphone with one hand like a more conventionally sized smartphone.

One of the major concerns when looking to purchase a smartphone is battery life, however the Huawei Ascend Mate defies the common assumption that smartphones have poor battery life as it is capable of offering an impressive 48 hours of the normal use and a respectable 10.5 hours of 3G internet usage time. This sets the Huawei Ascend Mate apart from its competitors and makes it a great buy for those who want to take full advantage of all the great apps available in the Android Market.

Perhaps the most innovative feature of the Huawei Ascend Mate is its Guiding Wizard, a patented navigation system is certainly a cut above its competitors. The Guiding Wizard uses the phone’s camera to guide you by overlaying directions on the video stream. This is much less confusing than the standard GPS maps seen on the mate’s competitors and makes it even easier to get from A to B!

The Huawei Ascend Mate runs on Android, an operating system developed by Google that is used on a range of smartphones and tablet devices. The popularity of Android operating system owes much to the fact that Android is designed specifically for devices with a touch display and the Android Market boasts around 975,000 apps. It is easy to see why a number of the top smartphone manufacturers are using this operating system!
