Huawei Vision review: Farsighted


With Incredibly Fast and About to Take Off written across their flag, Huawei took this year's MWC by a storm. Firing up on all cores - four of them, in case you've missed it - they pinned themselves emphatically on the Android map with an impressive...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 3.7" 16M-color capacitive LCD touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels) ; Android OS v2.3.5 Gingerbread ; SPB Shell 3D launcher preloaded ; Qualcomm Snapdragon...

Below-par sunlight legibility ; No dedicated camera key ; No video calling out of the box ; Non-user-replaceable battery ; SPB Shell 3D launcher looks messy ; Non-hot-swappable microSD slot

We repeatedly compared the Huawei Vision to a year-old package. Similarities with the HTC Desire S are too many to ignore. The unibody design is just the tip of the iceberg. The two handsets are nearly identical on the inside too. It almost feels like...

Huawei Vision review: The Huawei Vision has an aluminium unibody design and a curved 3.7in display


The Huawei Vision's curved touchscreen and unibody aluminium design are certainly great features at this low price. However, its a shame the touchscreen isn't always responsive as it often results in a frustrating user experience.

Competitive price, Unibody aluminium design, 9.9mm thick

Touchscreen isn't always responsive, Scrolling not very smoooth, Non-removable battery

Huawei Vision hands-on


The Huawei Vision offers a sturdy build and tempting take on Android Gingerbread for those of you on a modest budget. It's not the most powerful of smart phones though.

Sturdy construction ; Decent screen ; Attractive 3D carousel interface

Not particularly powerful ; Not the most stylish handset ever made

Huawei Vision


With an aluminium unibody design, this is the best-looking phone Huawei has ever made.

The look of the interface isn't a patch on HTC Sense either. It's a bit too angular and too busy. Huawei needs to learn the "less is more" motto before it'll stop us from using custom launchers on its phones, wiping out their additions.

Huawei Vision


The Huawei Vision is the difference between cheap and great value. The handset packs power and performance into a sturdy unibody design at a great price.

Great value ; Sturdy build and great performance ; Touchscreen feels great

Camera is poor ; No options for media sharing ; Only 2GB of memory included for media and apps

Allphones is the exclusive-release partner for the Huawei Vision in Australia, and if you pop into a store to take a look, make sure you compare it to the Nexus S while you're at it.

Huawei Vision


The phone will be available from Phones 4U on a £25 per month contract, which includes the handset for free. Huawei said that the Vision will be available in time for Christmas.
