Huawei Ascend P1 review: Up and comer

 

The Huawei Ascend P1 is one of the headliners in the company's growing Android portfolio. But the Chinese don't just grow droids, they refine them. The Ascend P1 isn't even the best they have, but it sends a clear message that Huawei means...

7.7mm thin body ; Quad-band GSM and penta-band 3G with HSPA support ; 4.3" 16M-color capacitive Super AMOLED touchscreen of qHD resolution (540 x 960 pixels) ; Android OS v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ; Two homescreen options - vanilla and 3D ; Dual-core...

No dedicated camera key ; No video calling out of the box ; Non-user-replaceable battery ; PenTile matrix display ; Price is yet to drop

When we first got the Huawei Ascend P1 at the office we thought it was a great phone - if only had it arrived a year earlier. Now that we're done reviewing it, we think it's an excellent package for this year too.

Huawei Ascend P1 review

 

Huawei who? That's the question many English-speaking smartphone buyers might ask upon reading the company's logo. While Motorola, Nokia, RIM, Apple, HTC, and Samsung have each risen to prominence...

Fancy 3D UI if you want it ; Stock Android 4.0 if you don't ; Snappy performance

Cheap rear cover ; Pixelated display ; No standout features

Above average isn't good enough in lands with carrier subsidies

Huawei Ascend P1 (Unlocked)

 

The Huawei Ascend P1 is not really a phone for U.S. buyers, but it may be an indication of good things to come.

Beautiful design. Fast performance. Excellent battery life. Runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).

Not optimized for the U.S. Average camera. Flimsy SIM card door.

Solid performance ; Light, thin and comfortable to hold ; Mostly stock ICS skin

qHD display falls short ; Mediocre call quality ; Limited onboard storage

It's not the best of the best, but it's a solid device and an indicator that the company's clearly heading in the right direction.

Huawei Ascend P1 (unlocked) review: Huawei Ascend P1 (unlocked)

 

The Huawei Ascend P1 turned a few heads when it first debuted at CES . We CNET editors nodded in approval at the high-contrast black-and-white design; the sharp angles and stylized curves; andthe Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich software, which was seen...

The snappily designed Huawei Ascend P1 has Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, and full HD video support.

The Ascend P1's camera and call quality fail to live up to their promise.

Huawei's Ascend P1 takes a step in the premium direction with great specs and a striking design, but it ultimately falls short of its potential.

Huawei Ascend P1 Review

 

Today on the SlashGear test bench is the new Huawei Ascend P1 Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone. It was first unveiled at CES and we've been waiting for it ever since. As of late Huawei has been making some huge strides with their hardware to...

Our final conclusion for the Huawei Ascend P1 was quite favorable. Other than a few design decisions we’d probably change ourselves the phone is promising. Huawei has continued to improve from an OEM brand into a mainstream competitor and the Ascend...

Huawei Ascend P1 Review

 

The Huawei Ascend P1 was the first element in this strategy that was announced at CES before the quad-core monsters we handled at MWC, and just as the company promised it is on our dissection table in the beginning of the summer. Did we mention it is...

Stylish, thin and light handset ; Vibrant Super AMOLED display ; Stock Android ICS by default

Just over 2GB of user-accessible memory ; Photos often come out overexposed and with bland colors

Huawei is certainly on the right track with the Ascend P1 – it is thin, light and stylish on the exterior, while capable on the interior with its dual-core processor. Some tradeoffs are introduced to seal its mid-range faith, like a non-HD screen and...

Huawei Ascend P1 Phone Review

 

Good overall phone priced a bit higher than it should be.

Fits well in your hand, zippy performance and stock UI

Expensive for what it is, camera is just ok

The Huawei Ascend P1 is a pretty good all around phone, however it’s price tag of AED 1,899 puts it directly in competition with the likes of HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3- the current top phones on the Android platform. At that price level, I cannot...
