Huawei just finished up announcing the Ascend Mate2 4G phablet, and if you’re only looking at the specs, the phone can sound like a bit of a mixed bag: choices like the less-than-bleeding-edge processor or only a 720p resolution for its 6.1-inch display might make the Ascend Mate2 4G sound less attractive than its competition. But dig a little deeper, and features like that huge battery, with its ability to charge other devices, start offering their own compelling reasons to consider the handset.
