Huawei's Ascend Mate

Remember Think Big!, the store that sold comically oversize objects (a Swatch (UHR) you could hang from a wall, six-foot-long wooden chopsticks, you get the idea)? If it were around today, it would likely sell Huawei's new Ascend Mate, a gargantuan phone (or, as the industry likes to call these hypertrophic mobile devices, “phablets”) with a 6.1-inch display. Fortunately the Ascend Mate has an equally massive 4050 mAh battery to power its IMAX-like screen. Without it, you'd likely be able to keep the thing on for no more than 3 seconds.
