Overall Huawei's Ascend P2 is a bit of a mixed bag. The unit has some of the fastest mobile broadband speeds in Australia, which is very useful if you're tethering it to a laptop for work on the road. However, its camera has problems with graininess and...

The Huawei's Ascend P2's main attraction in some parts of the world may be the Category 4 LTE chip but its talents are wasted here in the UK. This leaves it as another typical Android smartphone albeit with an above-average camera. UK users may like to consider the P2's brother, the Huwaei Ascend P6.

The Ascend P2 is arguably a nice looking smartphone , even if it's shown up in the looks department by Huawei's own Huawei Ascend P6 . It's certainly thin and light at 8.4 mm and 122 g. The Google Android handset sits nicely in the hand with its flat...

The Huawei Ascend P2 has a great screen and is fast enough for most, but the software is not as slick as other Android offerings and there’s simply not enough going on to help the P2 stand out from the smartphone crowd.

Huawei makes inexpensive phones that often get re-branded for specific carriers. The P2 is something different; an Android phone with a very particular bit of industry-leading technology under the hood.Huawei's phones to date have played very much in the...

The Huawei Ascend P2 is a highly capable smartphone which offers a strong line up of features and a decent level of specs - although it doesn't exactly excel at anything, or wow us with amazing features. It also has the tricky problem of the Huawei...

The first of a new breed of smartphones, the Ascend P2 can achieve mobile broadband speeds much faster than your iPhone… provided you have the backbone to back it up. The first Category 4 LTE handset to reach GadgetGuy’s offices, Huawei’s Ascend P2...

Notebookcheck's review of Huawei's Ascend P2 We had our doubts about the manufacturer's slogan right from the outset. The resolution of 1280x720 pixels is not appropriate for a premium device and the working memory capacity is also tight. However, the...

The Huawei Ascend P2 is a decent midrange Android smartphone with a fine screen, impressive camera and pretty good processor. It may not have the kudos Samsung or Sony but it certainly isn't outclassed by them. View Gallery 10 items ...

All in all, the Huawei Ascend P2 is an okay mid-range Android smartphone. It is far from being the ultimate device of this class, but it gets the job done and it doesn't have any major drawbacks, save for the inexplicable lack of a microSD card slot....

I'm quite a fan of the Huawei Ascend P2. I'm not sure it really needs a quad-core processor, and I'd really like microSD card support. But I am getting used to the lack of an app drawer and it no longer bothers me. The physical design is good, and the...

Small, light, pleasant to look at and packed with a decent screen and powerful processor. On the surface, the Huawei looks like the perfect purchase for many. The truth, however, is that it doesn't quite meet the spec with its performance....

The Huawei Ascend P2 is a worthy and welcome attempt at creating a must-have smartphone, but it’s not quite enough to keep up with the leaders of the pack - it’s not as pretty as the HTC One or the iPhone 5, and not as powerful and spec-strapped as...

The Huawei Ascend P2 is a decent mid-range phone. There are a few flashes of creativity, but on the whole it’s a middle-of-the-road device for people who don’t want anything too flashy and aren’t impressed by gimmicks. Its price – £299 SIM-free,...
