    Just had a look in store at a crystal black version of this phone. The build quality is of a high standard. The device for it’s size feels very light and is nice to hold.
    I placed it beside the Samsumg Note 2 and the Huawei is slightly wider but noticably taller. I had no trouble putting it into my side pants pocket. Jeans will be an issue when seated. So a belt pouch or a slim case with clips hopefully, will be made available soon.
    The hardware should perform as well as any other quad core phone on the market but for a lot less money. In fact at $429 Australian this phone is outstanding value.
    Onboard storage is small, so it will be necessary to spend upwards of $50 to buy a large capacity microSD card and one with fast transfer rate (class 10+) because of HD video etc.
    I once thought large phones would never prove popular, tablets could never replace the PC and very large TV’s were unnecessary.
    It’s definitely my next ‘phone’. Don’t really like the word phablet as a form factor discriptor and yes it could be a very small tablet also.
