Vodafone to stock the Huawei Ascend Mate

Vodafone to stock the Huawei Ascend Mate

The thought of owning a Huawei Ascend Mate is quite an appealing one, seeing our own Leigh Geary struggle to use it one handed in his review recently made me eager to get one. It’s just what you do with a large oversized phone. The good news is that if you want to get an Ascend Mate you’ll soon be able to get it on Vodafone, they have the following to say about it.

The Huawei Ascend Mate is just about to join Vodafone and, with its beautiful 6.1-inch display backed up by a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, it settles right in as our biggest smartphone ever. That’s great for multimedia, but a big screen is nothing without a battery life to match – something that, thankfully, Huawei’s well aware of.

If you’re wondering about how good the Ascend Mate is here is Leigh conclusion from his review

I tell you what the best bit about this device is… well… the best bits.. First, it’s a quality build. Second, it’s (just about) a phone. Sure, it seriously stomps all over the “phablet” line, but you can actually use it as a phone. Thirdly, it’s cheap. Expansys are offering it up for £339.99 which is really very good indeed.

When you’re at home this will replace your tablet. Believe me, at no time have I thought, “Hey, this website is getting on my nerves, I need a bigger screen”, because the Ascend Mate copes very easily with it. It’s fast, the battery life is pretty epic and the speaker works well, producing a very good sound.

Huawei are very good at making phones. Very, very good. This is another stonkingly good phone, but …. flippin’ ‘eck.. it’s gigantic to use as a phone. You really have to decide whether you want a solid 6.1 inches in your face.

Vodafone haven’t yet quoted an ETA yet, but we’ll let you know when they do.
