The first of which is the 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 4.7-inch 1280x720 LCD, a 13-megapixel BSI camera also finds its new home in the rear of the Ascend P2. The design is curvier than its predecessor, measuring in at just 8.4mm thick, this is thicker than the P1 but is in relation to the bigger 2420mAh battery it houses.

Huawei's Ascend P2 is running the company's Emotion UI, and is backed up by more than one pre-loaded skin - on top of this you can go in and actually customize the UI appearance through a do-it-yourself (DIY) mode. There are also several management apps at play, with 'power manager", 'traffic manager', 'startup manager' and 'permission manager'. Some of these apps are simply re-skinned Android apps, but the startup manager is new to Emotion UI.
