Huawei Ascend Mate Vs. Samsung Galaxy Note II (Video)

For our latest CES smartphone head-to-head, we decided to put the bigger-than-anything 6.1-inch Huawei Ascend Mate against its chief phablet competition, Samsung’s hugely successful 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II.

Despite an overabundance of screen real estate, Huawei doesn’t mess around at all when it comes to letting you take full advantage of the display, enabling you to hide the Android soft keys with a tap.

While the Galaxy Note II might be a little more usable a size, and have a display with higher visual quality, there’s little doubt that the Ascend Mate has batter power to spare, and its 4050mAh component dwarfs Samsung’s 3100mAh. Then again, Samsung always has its trump card, the S-Pen stylus, which the Ascend Mate doesn’t even attempt to compete with.
