87% Review Huawei Ascend W1 Smartphone | Notebookcheck
Huawei Gets things done. Huawei now releases a Windows 8 smartphone on the market dubbed Ascend W1. It features a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8230 SoC and a 4 GB internal flash memory. With a street price of below 200 Euros (~$259), it wants to cater to new smartphone users and price conscious buyers.

Huawei's Ascend W1 is a well-crafted device that'll impress anyone making their first tentative steps into the world of smartphones. If you're only motivated by price, aren't fussed about the limited storage options and won't be taking a lot of pictures, then this is an eminently sensible purchase.

Big, bigger, Huawei Ascend Mate. Although officially a smartphone, the Huawei Ascend Mate could pass easily as a tablet with its 6.1-inch display. But as the test shows, the XXL phone has quite a bit more to offer than just its imposing screen.
Huawei Ascend Mate: The phondleslab for the skint
Source: Reg Hardware English
For the money, the Ascend Mate is not at all a bad device. The screen is good, the price is right – Vodafone is offering it for £25 a month with nothing down, and you can pick unlocked examples up for under £340 – battery life excellent and there are some interesting VLP software optimisations like the two-thirds keyboard. And while made predominantly of plastic, it still manages to look and feel rather more upmarket than the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3. Performance isn’t bad either, though I don’t see Huawei’s K3V2 chipset keeping the folk at Nvidia or Qualcomm awake at night. Shame about that Google+ bug though.

However, we can't help but think that those after a large-screened smartphone have better choices on the market, like the Asus Fonepad, for example. While we were impressed with the screen and battery life, Huawei's overbearing UI is unlikely to win over many users, who might become frustrated by the handset's lacklustre performance, despite its high-end quad-core processor.

For Rs. 24,900 you get some pretty good specifications under the hood of the Ascend Mate and a really large display. For the same price you get some really great performing devices such as the Nexus 4, Samsung Galaxy S3 and more. What the Ascend Mate brings to the table is a really large display that's good for running multimedia content and playing games but considering the size of the device we wish the resolution were higher than 720p. The camera on the phone is lacklustre. You can consider picking up the Mate if a large display is mandatory for you, and you don't mind using a new UI. It's a better option than the Galaxy Mega 5.8 as well, if you are looking for performance and not familiarity.

A supersized phone with supreme battery life
Source: Engadget English
At times, the Ascend Mate comes across as a two-sided smartphone. There's the would-be flagship, with a big screen and even bigger battery life. If you value those two factors above others, you may have found an ideal mobile companion: the Mate outperforms the Galaxy Note II and Optimus G Pro on both those fronts, and it may outlast the Galaxy Mega 6.3 on battery tests, too.

Aluminum and more. Huawei has sent a stylish phone to our lab: An aluminum casing available in three different colors, quad-core SoC and a slim profile. Huawei's P6 should convince across the board with that, shouldn't it?

The Huawei Ascend P6 shows that the Chinese manufacturer can really make an impression on the Android market with its stunningly slim - if slightly derivative - design, as well as some quirky features that mark it out as a little bit different. The Ascend P6 may be Huawei's flagship device, but it's not a smartphone which will find itself at the top of smartphone tree - more playing catch-up to an ever strengthening pack.

There is no denying the fact that the Huawei P6 is an impressive phone. However, the inaccessible battery, no NFC and the low benchmark scores are some things you'll have to consider when looking at entire package on offer. The positives include the fact that the display is gorgeous and responsive. The camera's performance isn't the best but is suited for casual photographers. The design of the smartphone is slim, sexy and is definitely the first thing you'll notice about the P6. The interface offers a slight learning curve since Android has been completely customised and you may want to get your hands on the phone's interface before buying it.

The Huawei Ascend P6's headlines are the price and the thinness. It's light, remarkably slim and yet still a decent performer. There's also that higher-resolution front-facing camera to add an extra facet, though whether the beauty effect will be something you'll use without embarrassment is another matter. Still, decent battery life and a reasonable 8MP rear camera mean plenty of boxes are ticked. And above all, this is a phone that costs significantly less than its rivals. It's not as classy as the iPhone 5 and can't take pictures like the HTC One but it's a fun phone. Unless you're dead set on 4G - the phone's biggest omission - it's worth a look.

Considering the P6's modest £380 price, it is a fairly good phone. Featuring a nippy, albeit not cutting-edge, processor, decent screen and solid, but slightly too iPhone-like, design. Its strong points are let down by a host of poor Emotion software additions and poor battery life. For this reason, while we imagine most people will be more than happy with the P6, we can't wholeheartedly recommend it – at least not until Huawei decides to release a version running stock Android.

The thinnest smartphone in the world
Source: Inside HW English
From what we’ve seen so far, Ascend P6 is full of promise. It’s hard to predict how the final versions of both hardware and software will look like, but if they meet our expectation, it will be great. Even the test version is a very nice smartphone, extremely thin and comfortable to use. Design and ergonomics are merged in the right way, which we’ve especially liked.

Huawei Ascend P6 review: a beautiful handset, but performance is lacking
Source: Engadget English
For a phone that had its specifications fairly public for some time, it's hard to feel overly excited about what the Ascend P6 has to offer. That's not intended to seem unkind, however. It's more an acknowledgement that it's clear the majority of the effort has been put into designing an object of desire, rather than blowing our minds with numbers and features.

Source: PC Advisor English
There's no escaping the fact that a lot of the Ascend P6 design looks like it's been borrowed from the iPhone 5. With the same flat aluminium sides and rounded corners. Put it in a slip case and you'll easily convince your mates that you've upgraded to an Apple smartphone. The only real differences are the screen size (it's bigger than then iPhone) and the rounded bottom edge. Oh, and it also comes in pink.

The Huawei Ascend P6 is a strong handset from what remains one of the lesser known global manufacturers. The P6 is a sign that the brand is finally putting as much effort into its design as it is the spec and low price point. If marketed correctly, the Huawei Ascend P6 could be the device to send Huawei into the mainstream. It won’t be troubling the Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One just yet, though.

The Huawei Ascend P2 is a highly capable smartphone which offers a strong line up of features and a decent level of specs - although it doesn't exactly excel at anything, or wow us with amazing features. It also has the tricky problem of the Huawei Ascend P6 which basically lines up alongside the Ascend P2 sporting a fancier, slimmer metallic frame, although spec wise it's not quite as cutting edge.

The Huawei Mate 2 has been designed to provide a clear-cut solution to everyday problems in a cost-efficient way. Namely, it brings a good display, a no-nonsense smooth user experience and a battery capacity that is “out of this world”. Overall, this handset provides an excellent value-proposition to battery-lovers. It is best for users who like very big screens and its body-to-screen ratio allows it to be carried in pants pockets (and small purses) without problems. Those who want a phone that performs in synthetic benchmarks, or those who want the latest camera features will be better off spending twice as much to get a high-end phone.

The Huawei Ascend Mate2 is a well designed and solidly constructed device that looks and feels more expensive than the low $299.99 no-contract price.

Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G Review: one of China's biggest players has come to do business in America
Source: Mobileburn English
At least that's the theory. Without some form of marketing and smart promotion in the US, few people will ever know enough about Huawei's phones. The Ascend Mate 2 4G at least does its part by justifying the attention those marketing efforts might generate. The $299 price tag positions it as a phone with half the cost of the average high-end device but possessing specs that are close enough to not frustrate users. In a head-to-head competition with a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 or an LG G3, Huawei's not going to win in any category except price. That might be an advantage for people choosing to pay full price for their handset. The Ascend Mate 2 4G has what's necessary to have a reasonably sound experience if you're not looking for the bleeding edge, and it's better than most phones in its price range. If you want to go big but not spend big, the Ascend Mate 2 4G is a sensible purchase.

The Huawei Ascend Mate2 is comically large and an ergonomic nightmare—that's a given. But if you've made it this far, I'm assuming that isn't much of a concern. And while you can take issue with the relatively low-resolution display or heavy-handed Android skin, you'd be nitpicking at this price point—$300 for this much phone is an outstanding deal. The herculean battery life will be a godsend for most heavy users, while overall performance stands up well, even compared with more modern devices.

At $299 off-contract, it’s easy to overlook the relative lack of explosive or otherwise stand-out features on the Huawei Ascend Mate 2. You’ll have to purchase the device through Huawei’s new online store, and it’ll be shipped direct to you from there. We’ll have to let you know when there’s a place in the United States where you’re able to get some hands-on time in the near future - for now you’ll be out of luck.

For such a big phone, the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 fits surprisingly well in one hand and with the battery staying power, the ability to use it as an external battery charger and some two decent quality cameras there’s a lot to like.

Gigantic little Y. Huawei's Y product line is aimed at price-conscious smartphone newbies. The Ascend Y530 is no exception. The Chinese manufacturer bundles a rounded package for 149 Euros (~$206) and keeps a simplified usage in mind - and the 4.5-inch Y is available for less online.

In all the Huawei Ascend Y530 is a solid budget smartphone which is capable of performing all the basics you'd expect without providing any thrills along the way. For the £110 price tag it's an affordable offering, but if your budget can stretch just a little further there are better options out there.

Deluxe 2.0. Huawei discontinues its elegant Ascend P6, and sends the Ascend P7 into the race for the favor of well-heeled buyers. The Chinese manufacturer demands approximately 450 Euros for its updated premium model. The aluminum casing only underwent a minor facelift, but more has been modified inside: A latest quad-core SoC from HiSilicon, 16 GB of flash storage, and a bright 5-inch screen with a Full HD resolution.

It’s hard to easily recommend the Ascend P7 – on one hand you’ve got a phone with a great screen and impressive imaging capabilities, but then you realize that it’s shrouded in a terrible UI which refuses to let you enjoy the experience. The Ascend P7 may be masquerading as a cheaper alternative to the HTC One M8 or Samsung Galaxy S5, and while it is cheaper it’s not necessarily better at all. If you can put up with the mediocre performance and buggy UI in favor of an amazing selfie that would make Ellen DeGeneres proud, then this is the phone for you.

Huawei Ascend P7: We review the PANORAMIC SELFIE smartphone
Source: Reg Hardware English
It's hard to fault something against which there are no serious complaints. It's lovely, slim light and functional. Almost disconcertingly so, I found, after lugging around much beefier rivals. But for techies looking for a bargain, and those looking for a unique flagship feature - such as imaging - you'll have to pay the premium or shop around.

The phone’s display is crisp and super-sharp – really easy on the eye. If you’re a fan of selfies, this phone is meant for you, thanks to an 8MP front-facing camera. There’s also a good 13MP rear camera. If the price were significantly higher, this would be just another high-end phone. As it is, it packs in a lot of value for money.

Among Huawei phones, the Ascend P7 is a step forward. The design is reminiscent of other phones but is definitely a cut above the likes of the Galaxy S5 and marks the fanciest phone the company has produced. And that’s important when Huawei is out to establish itself as one of the world’s top premium phone-makers.

Huawei Ascend P7 Review
Source: Androidcommunity.com English
The Huawei Ascend P7 is the finest smartphone Huawei has made yet. It’s capable of bringing the heat with a physical design that’s sleek and appealing while the combined components present a smartphone ready to take on the best of the best. Unfortunately this device will almost certainly be staying outside of the United States for its 2014 run. The good news is: Huawei will be bringing more devices to the United States sooner than later. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more high-quality conglomerations like the Ascend P7 in the near future.

At a hardware level, the Huawei Ascend P7 is a very good smartphone for the price. Offering performance comparable to 2013's range of flagship smartphones as well as decent cameras and battery life, there is plenty to like about the Ascend P7. However, the device is let down by Huawei's Emotion skin, which is one of the worst we've ever seen. As well as altering the Ascend P7's interface to the point it is all but unrecognisable to even the most seasoned of Android users, the interface is also buggy and in general hampers the user experience.

80% Huawei Ascend P7 review: Firm's best smartphone is sleek and affordable but let down by software
Source: PC Advisor English
Huawei has produced a stunning smartphone in the Ascend P7 and this is couple with good value for money with that non-flagship price tag. There's some decent hardware on offer here, particularly the camera but the P7 is let down by software performance issues.

The Huawei Ascend P7 is a decent mid-range smartphone that does its best to stand out from the crowd with a wide range of apps and various photography modes. However, if you're not interested in taking selfies then there very little that the P7 does better than cheaper, faster phones such as the award-winning Motorola Moto X.

Huawei's latest flagship is an incredible effort to go up against many of the tip-top blowers on offer at the moment, giving snappy performance, great camera shots on the back, and surprisingly superb selfie skills up-front all in a slim and attractive chassis. At just €449 (£370) it offers great value, especially compared to other flagships that are nearly twice the price. We just wish Huawei would bring in a stock version of Android onto its flagship, as its Emotion UI unfortunately really drags it down. Huawei has come a long way, and we're looking forward to what's next for the company - if the P7 is any indication, Apple, Samsung and HTC had better watch out, as Huawei's offering some serious competition.

Huawei Ascend P7 hands-on review: Latest Android flagship is sleek and affordable
Source: PC Advisor English
The Huawei Ascend P7 is an impressive smartphone. Huawei has taken the P6 and improved it in many ways but still kept a reasonable price tag. We're impressed but look out for a full review soon.

Huawei Ascend P7 Review
Source: Slashgear English
For a long time, Huawei has been one of those "other" phone manufacturers. Never mind its rapidly growing global market share among smartphones, or its increasingly impressive feature sets; breaking into mind-share has proved far more difficult than actually breaking into the market itself. The Ascend P7 is an excellent example of why that's the case. True, its design feels derivative - I wish Huawei would turn what's clearly a capable hardware team to pushing its own unique aesthetic - but it's an ambitious phone unafraid to take big steps over and above the device that came before it.

Selfie machine. This is pretty much how Huawei advertises the Ascend G6 because its star is for once the front-facing camera with an exceptionally high resolution of 5 megapixels. The other equipment is more from the mid-range, but that keeps the price low. Huawei demands 249 Euros (~$338) for its newest smartphone offshoot.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with the Huawei Ascend G6, but at the same time not one feature really stands out. Battery life is good as is the overall performance and Huawei is finally learning that design and build quality does matter even on a midrange phone. The problem however is that in the Moto G and the Xperia M2 you have two smartphones that offer the same features for around £50 less.

Interestingly, much of what makes up the Ascend G6 was actually found in the P6, with a similar design, and almost identical (we think they may even be identical) cameras. But Huawei has managed to improve things a bit, with a faster chip and better mobile speeds, both of which help the G6. Is it the phone for you? Well, that depends on what your hands think when they hold it, but if you’re low on cash but want a good bang for your buck, that can totally be found in the Ascend G6.
