Thanks to the powerful 13MP camera on the rear of the Huawei Ascend P2, you are able to shoot full HD, 1080p video at 30fps with the handset.

The video recorder is accessed via the camera app, just flick the slide in the bottom right corner to camcorder to get started.

Huawei Ascend P2 review

You get the same three tools (flash, camera select and tap-to-focus) to one side of the display, plus the digital zoom is still at your disposal.

While recording you can zoom in and out as much as you like, but you can't toggle the flash so you'll need to decide if you want it on or off before you hit that red button.

In the settings menu you can also select HDR video, which will remove various shadows to give you clearer footage, while the image stabiliser will reduce the amount of camera shake in the video.

The Huawei Ascend P2 is capable of producing some really nice video footage - crisp and clear, you won't be disappointed.
