There are some phones out there that you can't find by walking into your favorite carrier store. These phones are a great advantage to those of you who don't wish to dedicate 2 years at a time to a single cellular carrier, by signing a contract. Most of those type phones, however, are rather low end, or don't have the pep of a great top tier device from a manufacturer you recognize by name. But I want to help you understand that the game of contract free wireless is changing. Almost all mobile manufacturers are releasing budget friendly smartphones with mid to higher end specifications. Some of which could compete with those names you know by heart, even though they are built to do so.
One specific company that is trying their best to break into the West mobile market with low priced smartphones is doing so with one of the largest phones I've ever touched. I'm speaking of the Huawei Ascend Mate2. The company's name is pronounced "wah" (like the first syllable in 'water') and then "way", Wah-way. You've might have seen their logo on phones you would typically buy at a contract-free wireless store such as StraightTalk or Cricket Wireless. But because they are trying to make a bigger name for themselves they are now selling direct from their website with more competitive specifications. This is a mid-range phone with a large screen and a small price. If you like contract free and big devices, I think you should really pay attention. Let me tell you why.
