While the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 is the one making all the headlines lately, and rightfully so, it's time for little brother to get a few headlines. The Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G LTE made it to the US over the summer and we were able to take a look at it for a bit. It's really a great smartphone, especially when you consider it's price of $299 unlocked. It is GSM only, which means AT&T or T-Mobile only. But it does work with both networks. I used it on T-Mobile while reviewing the device, and LTE worked great. The Ascend Mate2 4G LTE has a 6.1-inch 720p display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 4000mAH battery. And yes, it lasts forever, and then it still has like 50% left. It actually has better battery life then the Ascend Mate7 which we recently reviewed.
"PLANO, Texas [October 13, 2014]: Consumers can now purchase the Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G LTE on Newegg, the leading electronics-focused e-retailer in North America. The device is offered online at http://www.newegg.com/store/
Since its launch, the Ascend Mate2 has received critical acclaim for its powerful quad-core 1.6 GHz processor and a long-lasting 3900mAh lithium polymer battery that lets you enjoy a half-day of web surfing on a single charge. Featuring unique power-saving technology that improves performance by more than 30 percent versus other smartphones in its class, a single charge can let you: stream three movies in a row, surf the web for 12 hours, talk for 25 hours, or listen to 100 hours of music. The Ascend Mate2 is like a hybrid of bests: the best battery, the best screen, the best selfie experience – all rolled into one."
