The phablet smartphone market is getting more crowded all the time as the appeal for larger screen devices grows among consumers, and today we are looking at the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra vs. Huawei Ascend Mate 2 in a spec fight.
We are seeing the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 being left behind in terms of screen size, but many still see the device as the benchmark with phablet devices but that’s not to say other devices are not worth considering.
The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra has a 6-inch IPS LCD display at a resolution of 720 x 1280 with a pixel density of 245ppi, which compares to the Ascend Mate 2 that comes with a 6.1-inch IPS+ LCD display at the same resolution with 241ppi.
Powering the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 is the quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor running at a clock speed of 1.6Ghz, while the Sony uses the same processor that is clocked at 1.4GHz.
RAM & Storage
The Sony has 1GB of RAM with 8GB of on board storage that can be expanded further up to 32GB via microSD card, which compares to the Mate 2 that has 2GB of RAM with 16GB of internal storage expandable up to 64GB.
On the Huawei we have a 13MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash with 1080p video capture support at 30fps, which is paired with a 5MP front facer. This compares to the Sony that also uses a 13MP rear facer with Full HD video recording, while around the front is a 1.1MP unit.
The Sony will launch running the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system which is the same as the Huawei Ascend Mate 2.
Measurements & Battery
Unsurprisingly the Mate 2 is slightly larger than the Sony measuring 161mm x 84.7mm x 9.5 mm weighing 202 grams using a 4,050 non-removable battery, which compares to the Sony at 165.2mm x 83.8mm x 7.7 mm weighing 171.7 grams with a 3,000 mAh battery that is also non-removable.
