My HAM2 arrived yesterday and all I can say is that it's an extremely nice phone. I don't see why everyone says it a behemoth. I don't think it's that big. It fits in my hand nicely. In fact, my Moto G now feels like a toy phone in size. Like some others here have said before me, I'm not going back to a small phone again. I can actually read the screen comfortably. I still have apps to move on to it, but it's mostly set up. Pairs up well with my bluetooth devices. I hope we can get a developer interested in root. As I expected, most of my programs don't have the option to be moved to the SD card. Root will be lovely. I love my HAM2.

You are going to live the battery life as well, it's amazing. I've made upwards of 90 hours on one charge!!! There is no other phone out there that can compete with that.

I couldn't agree more. The HAM2 is a fantastic phone, and I think it deserves more credit. I change phones quite often, but now I'm finding it hard to move away from the HAM2. It's a little bigger than the Note 3, but I think the HAM2 has better build quality. It just feels more solid in the hand. The battery life is incredible, the performance is smooth, and the 720p resolution is fine for most applications. The EmotionUI is a little wonky, but I use NovaLauncher so I never even see it. I love the way the Phone Manager app cleans up memory/unused files, and warns me when a battery intensive app is running. The other thing I love is the HAM2 gives me the broadest range of compatibility with the PlayStore, whereas I've had to use MarketHelper on other phones simply to install an app. It seems like Huawei focused on the things people really care about with this phone rather than create new features they don't really need.

Huawei just announced the HAM7 at IFA, and it is starting to appear in online stores. The HAM7 is similar in size to the HAM2, but with several improvements, including: metal body, bigger battery, 1080p display, fingerprint ID, etc. The only problem is none of the newly released HAM7 models support LTE bands in the USA, so we can only get 3G/HSPA. I certainly hope Huawei decides to sell the HAM7 with US LTE bands, or something similar to it as a follow up to the release of the MT2-L03 in the US.

I love mine!
Got mine the middle of July. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!
The battery kicks butt, build quality I would put on par with Samsung, HTC, Sony.
I heard a lot of negatives about no updates, not the top specs bla bla bla.
Big deal! I'll take a snappy STABLE, mid tier device, that runs everything I need,
without glitches, and a big battery, and a very affordable price ANY DAY over the
high priced "flagships" that have to be updated all the time, batteries that get maybe
one day, that are carrier locked, bloated.
The best sleeper smartphone out there right now is the Mate2, hands down!

I've been using my Mate 2 for about a week now. Rooted, Nova Launcher, Auto Hide soft keys. I have to say for the specs, that even though it may not be equal to the latest flagship devices, it's a great performer because it's just so well optimized compared to the massive crap bogging down the flagships. The screen is awesome. 720p is fine for a phone. You wouldn't notice the difference with type because that's scalable vector graphics, and pictures really have to be blown up to see the difference. That's all market hype, don't fall for it. Battery life amazing. As for not having KitKat on it, I'm not sure we would benefit all that much because all the newer features have been incorporated into the apps now and the optimal performance upgrades for older devices are for phones with less RAM then the Mate 2 ART with L would probably be a noticeable improvement. I prefer it to my LG G3. That phone just sits in a drawer now.
