Summary: I really don't like reviewing things, but I just had to do it in this case. I'll keep it short. Positive: - Huge screen, after updating the software there is a possibility to hide the os navigation buttons, which gives extra centimeter to the screen. - Huge battery, I'm not gonna lie, it does drain, but much slower than any other phone I have ever used. I get around 20 hours of heavy usage out of it. - Slot for expandable memory - took my 64gb sdcard without problems.
Excerpt: have owned 3x HTC, 1xMotorola smart phone and a work Iphone 4 and the Mate is by far the best of all of them, easy to use, great screen, camera above average, well built (better than all the HTC phones and equal to Iphone build) and great battery life, very happy and getting a Huwai phone for my daughter very soon, very impressed, lot of phone for the money and not lacking in power or features compared to much more expensive phones, highly reccomended, also get decent...
Summary: Excellent phone, quick, and with a nice little community of people willing to help at xda-developers.com. Has replaced my Asus Fonepad (after 3 months!) as my favourite, because it fits in a trouser pocket of 32" waist jeans! Excellent value, what more can I say... Angus the gadget man!
Excerpt: Loving my new Mate device. Had Samsung Note 1 before and was planning to renew with a Note 2 but couldn't resist Mate @ £25. So glad I did, it's an awesome device and I love the HD screen/ camera quality which is incredible. The overall value is unbeatable. Well done Vodafone - a great deal.
Fantastic value for money with Vodafone - thank you!

Excerpt: I almost spent nearly double on a similar phone by another manufacturer, but so pleased I went for this. i love the personalisable homescreens, they are very different and characterful. Also slightly addicted to the game (Riptide)!!
