Huawei Ascend P1 now down to super-cheap status

Almost a year ago I posted a rather glowing Ascend P1 review. It was, and still is, a fantastic handset. Sure, it looks a bit like a the Galaxy S2 from Samsung, but now the dual-core 1.5GHz handset is down to just £169.99 SIM Free, and that includes …

Huawei Ascend P1 now less than £200

Yes, I know. Whenever the headline reads “less than £200” you know it’s going to be 1p less. But hey, it’s a good price for a great handset. The P1 has a definite “Galaxy SII” feel about it but we were suitably impressed in out Ascend P1 review. …

Huawei to launch an Apple and Samsung-beating handset

I’ve said it many, many times before and I’ll say it once again… in bold font… Watch out for Huawei When I looked at the Ascend P1 I was amazed at how good it was. It’s nothing short of fantastic, and their kit is getting better by the …

Huawei P1 in white to be exclusive to Phones 4u

We loved the Ascend P1. A great design (albeit quite similar to the Galaxy S2), a great price and no clutter in the OS. Now Phones 4u have announced that they’ll be doing the pearly white version exclusively. It’s up for £299.95 on pay-as-you-go or for as little …

Huawei Ascend P1 to be enhanced

If you read our Ascend P1 reviews then you’ll probably be aware that we were pretty impressed. The Huawei handset may “only” be dual core, but for the money it’s a brilliant handset which really pushes the company into the limelight. We’ve just been told that, following our …

Ascend P1 coming to Vodafone on PAYG

No indication on price just yet, but the most recent Vodafone catalogue shows the handset as coming to both Pay As You Go and Contract. Previously we had only seen the phone on contract, and we’re guessing that this slim stock-Android phone will be pretty flippin’ cheap too. …

A few more example shots from the Ascend P1

So, we took a walk over Cannock Chase this weekend and I … crashed the car into a rock. Wehay! No seriously. I properly broke the car. Anyhow, before all that happened I’d had requests from you guys for more example photos from the Huawei Ascend P1. We …

Huawei Ascend P1 Review

I’m going to start this review in a rather unconventional way. Bear with me. Straight away. Gotta admit it. This really isn’t bad. I mean sure, when I hold the Samsung Galaxy SII, then switch to this, there’s an ever-so-slight quality difference. The camera sticks out ever-such-a-little too …
