Huawei Ascend P1 - Expert Reviews
Huawei is a big name across the globe especially in other parts of Asia predominantly South Korea. But for some reasons, the company has not been able to replicate their success in India and has been categorized as a tier2 brand. Although the firm has not been able to build its credibility yet but has produced some decent devices which unfortunately did not translate into sales. Huawei Ascend P1 is another smartphone from the company that seems to have all the ingredients to succeed at the highest level. The device comes with a super AMOLED capacitive touch screen giving 16 million colors along with a resolution of 540 by 640 pixels. The pixel density is in the mid high region that delivers a good-looking screen with healthy images. The overall look of the smartphone is just fantastic oozing elegance and grace. The device has a length of 127.4mm, breadth of 64.8mm and a thickness of 7.7mm.
The 110 grams weighing gadget provides a microSD card slot at the top while a 3.5mm audio pin is situated at the bottom. The former of the two, is a way to enhance the external memory of the device up to 32GB if the card slot is used to its full potential thus adding value to the 4GB internal memory. The user as a result, would be able to keep a massive amount of data including songs, games, images, and videos. The 3.5mm audio jack allows the user to connect earphones to the device thus acting as a crutch for the audio player providing access to the latest and desired musical tracks. The loudspeakers are another way of listening to music. The smartphone runs on the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system but unlike a lot of its tier2 competitors, the firm provides Android Jelly Bean 4.2 upgrade which should go down well with the users. The 1.5GHz dual core cortex A9 processor along with the 1GB RAM, makes up for a fast device that can handle various multitasking operations quite well.
The smartphone is available in three colors of Metallica Black, Ceramic White, and Soft Pink, and is boosted by the standard lithium-ion battery of 1670mAH that delivers an acceptable talk time and standby time. The 8-megapixel primary camera is stacked up with features like auto focus, dual LED flash, and geo-tagging. The video shots are in high definition while the 1.3 megapixels secondary camera adds more value to the camera department. USB port, Bluetooth, GPRS, and EDGE are the other vital facilities of the data connectivity department that further flaunts WLAN features include Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hot spot and DLNA. A good downloading speed is obtained while the uploading speed stays a little less than ideal.
Operating system and UI
Huawei Ascend P1 comes with a 4.3-inch TFT capacitive touch screen giving away a pixel density of 256ppi along with a resolution of 540 by 960 pixels. The super AMOLED capacitive touch screen is powered by 16 million colors, as the multitouch screen stays protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass technology.
Huawei Ascend P1 provides a music player that can play popular musical tracks, which can be heard through the loudspeakers or earphones. Loudspeakers do not produce a crackling sound as we have seen in the previous Huawei devices, which is a good sign. Video player is another application for watching and enjoying desired videos in multiple formats of MP4, H.263, and H.264 player. The music player plays songs in the formats of MP3, WAV, and eAAC+ player.
Huawei Ascend P1 has a big 8-megapixel primary camera that can click clear and concise images at a resolution of 3264 by 2448 pixels.

Huawei Ascend P1 allows the user to enjoy web facilities at a decent downloading speed of 21Mbps and 5.76Mbps uploading speed. Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi hot spot along with DLNA are some of the better features of web department as the user can download data or create another independent server for foreign devices to connect to the Internet. GPRS, EDGE, and WAP browsers are other means to visit desired internet web sites.
Huawei Ascend P1 has a 4GB built-in storage space that should be adequate enough for a respectable amount of data storage like songs, games, images and videos. When the memory does run out which would happen in case the user is keen on keeping a massive data collection, then the user of microSD card slot is the only source for redemption. With a 32GB expansion capacity, Huawei Ascend P1 can bolster the memory like no other. Presence of 1GB of RAM is well balanced to accommodate a faster and more agile smartphone.
Huawei Ascend P1 has various games that are already available with the device while many can be downloaded from the Android Google Play Store. Android Ice Cream Sandwich is a worthy operating system but until and unless the user upgrades it to Jelly Bean, a lot of games and applications are bound to be missed out.
Huawei Ascend P1 features a 1670mAH standard lithium-ion battery that is above average in strength and in the results produced by it. Talk time and standby time are good and a little more would have made things far better and fruitful.
Huawei Ascend P1 gives out Bluetooth, USB port and GPRS along with EDGE when it comes to the connectivity department. Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi hot spot along with DLNA really strengthens the WLAN features as the user gets faster web access.
