Reviews for the Huawei Ascend P2

85% Review Huawei Ascend P2 Smartphone | Notebookcheck
Premium or mid-range? The Ascend P2 fuses a large screen and a powerful SoC underneath its black plastic casing. It is not quite clear what the device aims to be: Upper mid-range or lower premium sector. Compromises have to be made in some areas. Find out just where in this review.
70% Huawei Ascend P2 review - decent Android smartphone has above average camera
Source: PC Advisor English
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.

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. It also has the tricky problem of the Huawei Ascend P6 which basically lines up alongside the Ascend P2 sporting a fancier, slimmer metallic frame, although spec wise it's not quite as cutting edge.
