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.
