Huawei Ascend Mate Specifications and Features

A giant phone, that’s the first impression when we first see Huawei Ascend Mate. It is a smartphone with a size of a tablet. It sports a super large 6.1” IPS+ LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. With that size, readability is the most obvious benefit that you can get from this phone. The resolution is lower that we might expect for a 6.1” screen, but it’s not a big deal. Colors are still pretty rich and vibrant. Video playback might seem less crisp or detailed, but it’s just fine for daily usage. Other features that support the display are Corning Gorilla Glass protection, Emotion UI, Multitouch support, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, and Proximity sensor. (image from
