MWC 2013: Huawei Ascend P2 hands-on preview

Huawei's Ascend P2 is the follow-up to last year's hit Ascend P1 smartphone, and although it can't claim to be the world's slimmest mobile any more, it's stil impressively slender at just 8.4mm and light enough that you'll hardly feel it in your pocket. The 4.7-inch screen is impressively sharp at a glance, thanks to the 1280 x 720 pixel resolution.

The all-glass front panel gives the Ascend P2 a classy look, and although the glossy plastic backing won't be to everyone's taste, we quite like the sheen of the white model (black also available). It feels good in the hand thanks to the curved finish.

We had a quick play with Huawei's new interface, which sits on top of Android 4.1 Ice Cream Sandwich. Switching between desktops is a smooth experience, while a handy widget on the home page clusters all of your important information, including news, weather and your photos.

At £350-ish for a quad-core smartphone, the Huawei Ascend P2 should be a bargain worth picking up, especially with its support for Category 4 LTE 4G. Our full review is coming soon.
