We saw the release of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 a few days ago, and the phone already has some competition from the Huawei Ascend Mate, which is a phablet which comes in the same category as that of the Mega 6.3. The Huawei Ascend Mate comes with a slightly smaller screen, measuring at 6.1 inches. Another thing that’s common is the same screen resolution, which is 720p HD.
Display And Processor
As mentioned above, both phones have very similar screen sizes. The Mega 6.3 comes with a 6.3 inch screen whereas the newer Ascend Mate comes with a slightly smaller 6.1 inch screen. Given the overall dimensions of these phones, the minimal difference in the screen really won’t matter much. One’s choice will mostly be because of other factors such as brand value, processor, etc.
The Galaxy Mega comes with a dual core 1.7 GHz processor from Qualcomm, on the other hand the Huawei Ascend Mate features a better quad-core processor. The Ascend Mate comes with a K3V2 processor, which is designed and made by Huawei themselves. This quad core processor will come clocked at 1.5GHz per core.
Camera And Memory
Both phones come with a main 8MP camera, which gives you nothing to choose from in between the two. However, there is a slight difference between front cameras. The Mega comes with a 1.9MP front camera whereas the Mate comes with just 1MP. The Mega might be a better option for people who do a lot of video calling and self portraits, while it shouldn’t really matter to anyone else.
Although the internal memory of the Mate is not exactly known yet, it is speculated that the device will come with 16GB of ROM. Apart from this, the phone will have expandable storage of up to 32GB. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 will come in two variants, namely the 8GB and 16GB variants.
Battery And Features
The Ascend Mate beats any other phone in its category when it comes to battery. The Mate comes with a massive 4050mAh battery. The Mega, on the other hand, comes with a battery rated 3200mAhm which although is quite large capacity in itself, is being made seem like a small battery by the Ascend Mate. You can expect the Mate to last over a day of moderate usage, whereas the Mega should manage one day but nothing more than that.

As it should be quite clear by now, the Huawei Ascend Mate is indeed the better choice out of the two, due to the much bigger battery and a better processor, which comes from the house of Huawei itself. Even in terms of RAM, the Mate beats the Mega; the Mate comes with full 2GB of RAM while the Mega offers only 1.5GB. All this does say that the Mate is definitely the better choice of the two.
