6.1 inches of screen gives you a large canvas for consuming culture. Brightness is turned all the way up in this shot, but the screen is fine on auto. One thing it's not is super-high resolution. This display comes in at 720p, not 1080p.

The phone is undeniably wide, which makes it harder for people with small hands to hold (ahem).

Although it's tall and wide, the Mate 2 is also slim. At over 7oz (200g), it's also fairly heavy.

A 3.5mm headset jack is the phone's only embellishment along its top edge.

The 13-megapixel camera comes with flash, 1080p HD video recording, and autofocus, plus a few extra settings as well.

Huawei's custom skin, Emotion UI, covers Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. You can also personalize it with a couple of extra themes.
