Huawei's Ascend Mate proves that bigger isn't always better

 

The Mate may push phablet size boundaries for now, but it's the Android interface and not the hardware that's the phone's major winner.

Huawei Ascend TapouT Edition (MetroPCS)

 

The Huawei Ascend TapouT Edition bundles an extra battery cover and some mixed martial arts-related software, if you're into that sort of thing.

Finally runs Android 2.2. MetroPCS pricing plans remain awesome. Exclusive TapouT content.

Otherwise identical to the regular, mediocre Huawei Ascend. No 3G. Still sluggish. Worse battery life than before.

Apps, Multimedia, and Conclusions One nice bonus is the Android 2.2 upgrade, which normally improves responsiveness and adds lots of little details throughout the UI. But the 528MHz, ARM11-based Ascend still managed to feel sluggish, with several...

Huawei Ascend (MetroPCS)

 

The Huawei Ascend is a budget Android device that doesn't offer enough to sway many MetroPCS customers.

Big screen. Low up-front price with no contract.

No 3G. Middling call quality. Sluggish, choppy UI.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The 2.5mm headphone jack was the usual downer, as it makes finding good-sounding third-party earbuds virtually impossible. My 32GB SanDisk microSD card worked fine in the side-mounted slot, and there's also 168MB of...

Huawei Ascend (Cricket Wireless)

 

The Huawei Ascend is a good value for Cricket subscribers looking to run the latest mobile apps

Big screen at a low price. Reasonably powerful. Inexpensive plan prices.

Cheap construction. Poor camera. Noisy stereo Bluetooth. Useless voice dialer. Non-standard headphone jack.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The non-standard 2.5mm headphone jack was a disappointment. My 16GB SanDisk card worked fine in the side-mounted slot, which was saddled with a stiff, sharp port cover that felt cheaply made. MP3 and AAC music tracks...

Review Huawei Ascend G525 Smartphone

 

More horsepower. An entry-level smartphone with a quad-core processor - Huawei combines these apparent contradictions in the 4.5-inch Ascend G525. We checked the performance of the Android smartphone for 250 Euros (~$345).

UMTS dual band, 5 megapixels camera, Removable battery, 2 SIM slots, Micro SD cards up to 32 GB, Good performance, Low temperatures, Enhanced sound via DTS, Decent battery runtimes, Inexpensive, The good overall impression of the Ascend G525. Even...

Glossy display, Only 2 GB storage, GPS could be more precise, Whistling PSU, More communication modules, for instance quad-band UMTS. The GPS module could be more precise and the camera could be better

Cheap prepaid Android smartphone sports large touch screen

Affordable, prepaid Android phone, large touch screen

Huawei Ascend Reviewed

 

A review of the cheap, touchscreen, Android based Huawei Ascend. Does it have what it takes to make budget conscious users smile?

One such manufacturer is Huawei (pronounced: "HER-WAY"), in an attempt to capture the tight budgeted but tech savvy market, they have launched the Ascend, a cheap touchscreen phone with all the modern conveniences expected of a smartphone packed into it.

Review: Huawei Ascend

 

The Huawei Ascend is the most affordable Android phone on the market, available without a contract on Cricket Wireless. Can it rise above its meager asking price?
