Huawei Ascend P1 LTE Review: In Depth

Recombu
24 November 2012
  • Conclusion: In its favour, the Huawei Ascend P1 LTE has a decent camera, good battery life and solid performance. It’s weakest area is definitely its design though with hollow plastic beef paling in comparison to its skinny dense non-LTE counterpart. If you’re prepared to take a hit in terms of design, then the Huawei Ascend P1 LTE is the cheapest Android on EE’s 4G network.
  • Pros: LTE deliver fast mobile internet, Virtually stock Android UI, Good web performance
  • Cons: Mediocre screen, Plastic, hollow build, Expensive with 4G contract

Huawei Ascend P1 Review: In Depth

Recombu
21 November 2012
  • Conclusion: So while we could take or leave the design of the Huawei Ascend P1 and there's limited storage on board, the phone is thin, light and memory is expandable. We also really love how stock the Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich Experience is, which when coupled with a great camera, makes the £26 a month contract price very reasonable.
  • Pros: Bright, vibrant display, Great camera, Expandable storage, Thin and light
  • Cons: Plastic body doesn't feel premium, Design looks uninspired, Poor stock keyboard, Lack of internal storage

Huawei Ascend P1 Review

pocketnow.com
17 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Huawei set some ambitious goals and made some lofty claims at MWC 2012. The company’s numbers are looking up and its brand awareness seems poised to grow further over the next year; we’d say they’re a company worth keeping an eye on. But if Huawei is really angling for a shot at smartphone supremacy, it’s got to do better than the Ascend P1.
  • Pros:  Thin and light, very pocket-friendly,  Good battery life,  Clear, sharp display,  Responsive UI, lightweight & useful skin,  Solid 3G performance,  Adequate camera
  • Cons:  Unimpressive industrial design,  PenTile display will be irritating to some,  Nonremovable battery,  Slippery, cheap casing materials,  Stock keyboard almost unusable

Will Huawei's first international superstar smartphone leave the world with a taste for more?

theverge.com
12 June 2012
  • Summary: Huawei's Ascend P1 isn't a universal success, but its failings are few: in almost every way, it's well above average, and I'm positively enamored of the way Huawei makes its custom skin an opt-in / opt-out proposition. If you live in the United States, though, the P1 may be a moot point: Huawei tells us it hasn't decided yet whether the $500 off-contract phone will ever land stateside.
  • Pros: Fancy 3D UI if you want it, Stock Android 4.0 if you don't, Snappy performance
  • Cons: Cheap rear cover, Pixelated display, No standout features

Huawei Ascend P1 Review

Phone Arena
1 June 2012
  • Conclusion: 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 4GB of internal memory, but the Super AMOLED screen is great for watching videos, there is a microSD slot for expansion, and the sealed battery is with quite the endurance, so these are minor quibbles.
  • Pros: Stylish, thin and light handset, Vibrant Super AMOLED display, Stock Android ICS by default
  • Cons: Just over 2GB of user-accessible memory, Photos often come out overexposed and with bland colors
