The first company that introduced the 6 inch phablet was none other than Huawei, who introduced the particular in its new phablet Huawei Ascend Mate. Huawie was introduced back in January 2013, but seemed to be available in india only after June. The biggest phablets from Samsung till date was Galaxy Note 2 with a display of 5.5 inches but to compete with the coming bigger phablets Samsung introduced its Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3.

Let's have a look onto how Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is going to play a fare game against Huawei Ascend Mate. Let's define the capabilities via different steps, the steps include:

• Quality in Building and Designing
• Display
• Performance and its Hardware properties
• Camera
• Software
• Battery
• Connectivity

1. Quality in Building and Designing

Beginning the game with its design and quality in building up the outer part, we come across Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 that seem to be another member of Samsung Galaxy play field, and its being much difficult to identify the Galaxy phones. Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 follows the same criteria used by the company to build S4, the same pattern in textured way spreading it all over its body, and fully build using plastic.

On the other hand Huawei Ascend Mate approached for a more convenient look for its phablet by designing it in a rectangular shape, providing a bit rounded corners on the phablet. Keeping behind the plastics used for building the body of the phablets nowadays, Huawei tried for a different approach by developing its Ascend Mate's outer body by covering whole of the body with metal, that allowed it to increase its weight to about 200 grams. The metal covering makes it much slippery and difficult to handle in a wet hand.

Now in terms of its height, width and thickness, Galaxy Mega 5.8 is a bit smaller than Huawei Ascend Mate. In its front, the ambient and proximity sensors are located near to the earpiece and above the display. A front facing camera can be mentioned next to these sensors. We can find LED notification light in Huawei Ascend Mate next to its earpiece, above the display, but Galaxy Mega 5.8 is lacking the same.

2. Display

As the name indicates Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 has a screen size of 5.8 inches with qHD LCD display, and having a pixel density of 190ppi. On the other side Huawie Ascend Mate has a screen size of 6.1 inch IPS HD display with a pixel density of 241ppi, and a Corning Gorilla glasses are used for Ascend Mate to protect its display.

A low resolution display is another weak point that Galaxy Mega 5.8 keeps with it, the display always provide a blue tint that is usually common nowadays, but Huawei Ascend Mate has got itself a good part of its display. The better part that is remaining in Galaxy Mega 5.8 is its viewing angle which is quite appreciative when compared with Huawei Ascend Mate. When try to tilt the display of Huawei Ascend Mate we come across loosing a contrast in its display but on the other hand Galaxy Mega 5.8 keeps the same contrast when tilted in any direction. Appealing onto the picture quality, it is the top most priority used by customers these days, and hence Galaxy Mega 5.8 loses that appeal to, the reason behind such a comment is that Galaxy Mega 5.8 product highly saturated images that turns the real image into a highly contrasted image. But with the IPS HD display Huawei provides the best part of its snapshot.

3. Performance and its Hardware properties

1.4 GHz dual-core Broadcom BCM28155 processor has been used to power up Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8, but Huawei Ascend Mate uses its homely developed Huawei K3V2 Soc indulging quad-core processor with 1.5 GHz. Samsung Galaxy Mate has on board 1.5 GB RAM and Huawei Ascend Mate has on board 2 GB RAM, that makes a big difference between them.

The internal storage capability of Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is 8GB, and from that 5.34 GB is accessible to user. Ascend Mate provides an internal memory of 8 GB and among that 4.65 GB is accessible to user. The memory in both phablets can be expanded by using microSD card.


Samsung Galxy Mega 5.8 and Huawei Ascend Mate is provided with 8 megapixels camera and both can record 1080p videos. The profitable part for Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is that it has a secondary camera of 1.9 megapixels but Huawei Ascend Mate have just 1 megapixels front camera.

5. Software

Huawei Ascend Mate runs on Android 4.1.2 which is overlaid by the company's own Emotion UI in other hand Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 runs on Android 4.2.2 which is overlaid by the company's own TouchWiz UI. When comes to software applications Samsung Galaxy Mate provides Multi-Window functionality that allow user to access two things at a time, it also comes with well developed feature called smart stay feature that allows the display to be on until the users eyes are on the screen. But Huawei losses all this features. So Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 wins when it comes to its software part.

6. Battery

Samsung Galaxy Mega provides 2600 mAh battery whereas Huawei Ascend Mate provides a battery of 4050 mAh which possibly makes everyone clear that Ascend Mate has got a long lasting battery backup, but Samsung Galaxy Mega loses so.

7. Connectivity

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 comes with dual-SIM capability which Huawei Ascend Mate lacks and looking further to its connectivity both the devices has got Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth and microUSB facilities

So here was the whole definition about both the phablets, now moving onto its conclusion


Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 has been priced similar to that of Huawei Ascend Mate, but after the further conclusion, we get to know that Huawei has got many advantages on Galaxy Mega 5.8 that is, in terms of display, battery life and better processing power Huawei has achieved its success.
