Another very good handset from Huawei. The battery held out well and the pictures from the camera were very good indeed. I liked the fact that it had a dedicated camera button and the quad-core CPU meant that everything sped along very quickly. I feel that Huawei will be adding to their minor software tweaks in the coming years and months as, although their hardware is excellent, they’ll need to start shouting louder about some of their additional features that are tucked away in the settings. They can compete with the big boys but they need to shout about it more.

Tech Advisor

Decent Android smartphone with above average camera

from Tech Advisor

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.

A respectable all-round handset which offers up a decent set of specs

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.

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.

That's not to say you'll be disappointed if you do opt for the Ascend P2 and it is a potentially great value 4G option at the top end of the market.

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. The pretty, 4.7-inch display tops the list of things we like about it, followed by the slim profile and lightweight body, so if these are the features you value the most, then the Ascend P2 won't disappoint.

Decent style, solid battery life, decent camera, good screen, custom UI is pleasant enough

from Pocket-lint

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. There's more lag here than we'd expect, and the phone nev...More

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. There's more lag here than we'd expect, and the phone never feels all that nippy. Even so, it remains a good choice in the mid to high-mid market.
