Huawei Ascend P2 Review: In Depth

Recombu
5 December 2013
  • Conclusion: The Huawei Ascend P2 is a strange device. It reminds us of Android handsets from 2011; still rough around the edges with smattering of little bugs that you’d only ever really notice as time wore on. That’s a shame considering Huawei is positioning the Ascend P2 as a more affordable LTE handset. If the company had spend a bit more time optimizating and tweaking the software, then it would have had a great mid-range handset on its hands.
  • Pros: Great screen, Slim, attractive body, Affordable 4G
  • Cons: Buggy interface, No microSD card, 1GB RAM

Review: Huawei Ascend P2

  • Pros: Category 4 LTE speeds when networks support it, Excellent audio playback through headphones, Feels more like stock Android, Includes the excellent Android stock keyboard with gesture typing, 32GB storage built in
  • Cons: Mediocre battery life, No microSD slot

Huawei Ascend P2 review

15 July 2013
  • Conclusion: I’m quite a fan of the Huawei Ascend P2. I’m not sure it really needs a quad-core processor, and I’d really like microSD card support. But I am getting used to the lack of an app drawer and it no longer bothers me. The physical design is good, and the screen is pleasing. All of which makes me hanker to get my hands on the forthcoming P6, and I am afraid that, rather than any issues the P2 may have, could be this handset’s biggest problem.
  • Pros: Smart design, Impressive screen, Fast processor, Category 4 LTE support
  • Cons: No app drawer, Lacks microSD port

Huawei Ascend P2 review

Pocket Lint
9 July 2013
  • Excerpt: The Huawei P1 was a phone we very much liked. It took Huawei away from its fairly safe designs and into uncharted territory. A bold step for a company quite new to selling phones to consumers, and one that worked well
  • Pros: Decent style, solid battery life, decent camera, good screen, custom UI is pleasant enough
  • Cons: Not that cheap, a bit laggy and slow, lacks the glamour of even an older iPhone or SGS

Huawei Ascend P2 Review

Mobile Choice UK
28 June 2013
  • Conclusion: The Huawei Ascend P2 is a competent handset that sits neatly in the upper mid-range of the smartphone hierarchy. While there are a few glints of creativity, for the most part it is an unassuming device for people who want an Android phone that isn't too flashy and will do what they want without gimmicks. At just £299 SIM-free, it's a definite contender.
  • Pros: Slimline design, good specs, decent camera
  • Cons: Keyboard is poor, no microSD slot, average battery life

Expert Review

PC Advisor
9 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The Ascend P2 is arguably a nice looking smartphone , even if it's shown up in the looks department by Huawei's own Huawei Ascend P6 . It's certainly thin and light at 8.4 mm and 122 g. The Google Android handset sits nicely in the hand with its flat back and rounded edges. However, for a UK audience it has nothing to make it really stand out from the crowd – and that includes Huawei’s claims to be the fastest. See also Group test: What's the best smartphone?
