Huawei Ascend P1 review: Up and comer

25 June 2012
The Huawei Ascend P1 is one of the headliners in the company's growing Android portfolio. But the Chinese don’t just grow droids, they refine them. The Ascend P1 isn't even the best they have, but it sends a clear message that Huawei means...

My P1 battery shows unstable battery level for 1 week and it depletes battery easily . Sometimes; it shuts down due to depleted battery level even i charged it few minutes ago. It indicates wrong battery level when charging. I bought it one month ago from regional shop. What can i do for annoying battery? please help me.

hi what was the website that you bought from UD$290

  • CRashed

I just got mine fully unlocked for USD$290. It is ridiculously cheap and dare I say the deal of the year for android phone. The Galaxy S2 unlocked are priced between $390-$450. One thing about it that I hate though, the stupid protruding camera "pod" scratch pretty easily. Who's bright idea at huawei to make the camera lens as a phone stand?

consumer, 27 Jun 2012i thought it's not bad if it gets cheap on market, but it's... moreWrong. This battery is affected 67% by its brigthness screen. So u can reduce to save more power. But actually i am impressed by how fast it is be charged. Just 30 minutes!

I told my cousin to get the P1 as he was looking for an affordable and new smartphone and he loves the device

I have a Nokia 808 pureview and I have to admit I quite enjoy using his P1 everything is just snappier and more polished

however I see no improvements in the Screen over my 808s nhd resolution in fact I daresay the 808 has a better screen when looking at the same images the 808 looks better maybe due to the fact that the 808 is a RGB Amoled

also the Huawei though very thin and very light feels really flimsy and cheap a real polar opposite with the 808 which is very thick in comparison and heavy but the 808 also feels very sturdy and luxurious

However I will say if a Camera wasn't a concern for me I would happily choose the Huawei over the 808
