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.
Pros: LTE deliver fast mobile internet, Virtually stock Android UI, Good web performance
Cons: Mediocre screen, Plastic, hollow build, Expensive with 4G contract
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...
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

Cons: Cheap rear cover, Pixelated display, No standout features
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...
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
Conclusion: The Ascend P1 LTE is a solid phone. Really, we should love it, as it's a barebones Android experience for the most part, has speedy 4G and seems to manage well with its battery. And indeed, it's reliable and practical, but it's also a bit dull.
Pros: Solid construction, good screen, responsive, pure Android experience
Cons: Not hugely exciting, the non-LTE P1 looked a lot better,
