Huawei Ascend P2 is a mid-end Android cellphone released some years ago, in 2013, provisioned with a medium sized 4.7" screen, a 1.5 gigahertz Quad-Core processor, and two cameras, a 13 megapixels back facing camera and a 1.3 mega-pixels front-facing camera.

Huawei decided to equip this phone with a Huawei K3V2 chip, packing a good performance 1500 megahertz Quad-Core processor with 1 GB of RAM memory. This device has a 16 GB interesting internal memory and though it doesn't include a slot for external memory cards, it should be enough to store a couple hundred apps, although it may not be enough if you are planning to install some of the heaviest games available nowadays or taking tons of pictures and videos.

This device is a compact cellphone, taking into consideration it packs a 4.7 inches display and it is only 5.36" long and 2.63 inches wide. This phone is thin and stilized, with a thickness of just 0.33 inches. This device is much lighter than what one would expect from a cellphone of this size.

Huawei designed the Huawei Ascend P2 with an astonishing 4.7" screen, and a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, which makes everything look absolutely perfect. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

This cellphone features two cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.3 mega-pixels front camera. This phone also captures 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 fps. Additionally, the camera includes a couple of useful characteristics: auto-focus, flash, digital image stabilization, HDR mode and geo tagging.

The Huawei Ascend P2 has Wi-Fi connectivity (which can be shared with other devices around, acting as a wireless modem or router), 4G LTE fast connectivity or the fastest 3G connection type, supported by HSPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a Micro SIM card for GSM services.

This device also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (allows communication with other bluetooth devices and accessories), GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Huawei Ascend P2 counts with a big 2420 mAh non-removable battery, enough to provide this cellphone with an extremely long battery life. Huawei afirms this cellphone has a stand by time of 269 hours and a talk time of 16.7 hours. An issue to consider is that the Huawei Ascend P2's battery isn't replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to live shorter, whereas with such a big battery you will probably buy a new phone before it becomes an issue.

This phone is priced 249 dollars, similar to other same level devices. No matter if you are looking for a phone for playing games, will use this phone for work or will use it mostly for internet broswing and social networks, this phone is the correct choice .
