Huawei Ascend Mate

The Ascend Mate from Chinese handset manufacturer, Huawei, is one of the biggest smartphones on the market at the moment, thanks to its 6.1 inch display.

This week the phone went on sale in the UK after a few months in limbo and with an upfront asking price of  335, it looks like a relatively affordable alternative to something like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Although it only has a 1200×800 resolution, which looks a little bit dull compared to the full HD screens, found on the likes of the Sony Xperia Z and HTC One, the Ascend Mate does have a good deal of power under the bonnet.

A quad core processor clocked at 1.5GHz is partnered with 2GB of RAM and a big 4050mAh battery, to keep everything running for at least 24 hours under medium usage.

Connectivity includes Wi-Fi and 4G LTE, so the Ascend Mate should have no problems in this department.

With such a big screen, it is perhaps unsurprising that the phone is a little bit on the large side, making it difficult to squeeze into average pockets.

But for anyone who wants a phone which is almost as big as a tablet, this could be the ideal companion.
