The first thing I noticed about the Huawei Ascend P1 was just how light it is. Measuring in at 110g, it really is one of the lightest smartphones I have reviewed, and is even 2g lighter than the iPhone 5. However, I did feel that the way Huawei had...

The Huawei Ascend P1 has really impressed me during my time with it, it does almost everything that my One X does and it comes damn close to being as fast as that device too so for the stupidly low price of £234.99 Sim free it's a flipping bargain!...

Huawei Ascend P1 What a first This is hardly the first time that we’re meeting Huawei products for the pages of our website, but these were mostly manufactured by other companies and merely signed by Huawei. After the Ideos 7 Slim tablet, Huawei’s...

The Ascend P1 is our first introduction to Huawei and we have to admit that we are lukewarm after testing it. The 4.3-inch display looks good, the phone has a slender appearance, and we're generally positive about the design even if it is modest. The...

The Ascend P1 is a pleasant surprise. It may not revolutionise the industry, but it does its job well. The look is minimalist but not "cheap", making for a good everyday companion. It's too bad the sound is so...

Despite its slightly cheap body the P1 ticks a lot of boxes. It has ICS from launch and while both thin and light still packs a decent battery. The screen is bright and vivid, it has a microSD slot and the camera is not half bad. The chipset may not...

While the Huawei Ascend P1 is undoubtedly the company’s best phone yet, it’s still lacking the extra build quality and premium finish of HTC’s One S. That phone is almost identically priced, with a smarter design and screen - and the potential for an...

Would I personally buy a Huawei Ascend P1? No, because I'm an extreme early adopter, and I like to have the latest features — a large 4.7″ screen, 4G speeds, a fantastic camera and so on. And I'm relatively happy to pay a premium for that. But if I was...

Handset maker Huawei has long been known for its budget phones, many of which manage to pack in plenty of features for under the hundred dollar mark. So what is a $500 phone like for the company, and can it compete with the top-tier devices put out...

The Ascend P1 offers a surprisingly powerful and smooth Android experience, made all the better by including the option to bin Huawei's user interface modifications and opt for a virtually untouched "Ice Cream Sandwich" experience. Combine that with a...

Huawei’s Ascend P1 is stuffed full of good features. There’s the excellent bright qHD screen, lots of power from the dual-core processor, and the eight-megapixel camera. There’s no real wow factor here. It isn’t desirable like the Galaxy S III or...
