First post for Beijing Cream: Huawei Steps Up Into The Big Leagues With 6.1-Inch Smartphone (Emphasis On Big)

My write-up of Huawei’s new huge phone was originally posted on Beijing Cream.

Some highlights:

6.1 inches is huge. By my unscientific estimation, it’s about the size of my hand, maybe bigger. Huawei is also positioning it not only as a big’un, but also a bad’un, with specs on the Ascend Mate coming close to other high-end phones: 1.5 Ghz quadcore processor, 8-megapixel back-facing camera, and a poo-poo’ed 1280 x 720 resolution.**

Who would buy such a phone, I hear you ask. To that I answer: it doesn’t matter how big your hands are. One would think that in a city of over 20 million people there would be a tendency toward smaller cars given every decreasing parking spaces, but in Beijing SUVs, and even Hummers, are quite popular. Chinese people, like Americans, enjoy big things.
