Seems smoking hot, after my experience with LG though and their non-existent software updates, I just worry with any phone now, if they will update the software or if the phone will be open enough to allow the modders to do their thing with it.
no quad core? no 64GB micro sd?

@morpheus LG?
qHD screen (960x540) not 1080p.
similar spec to the s2. s2 territory not bad price for this level of spec for just over £250 imo
Makes the Huawei Hono/u/r price - £200+) look a bit silly. Superb price. I've got the budget G300 and it's superb. Are Huawei the next HTC lol?
Anyone who bought the Galaxy S3 must be kicking themselves now.

Not really. I don't own a S3 but it is still way ahead of this spec wise. But better a S3 than a iPhone 5 I guess as he/she could still buy this phone along with their S3 for the price of an iPhone5...each to their own.

So it is thinner than the words thinnest smart phone? How is that possible? iPhone 5 owners must be so ashamed.
Gonna wait until its 99.99, then use a littlewoods £30 off code. lulz

I guess it depends how well it sells at this price. But it's a mobile and 3 months is a long time in mobile terms so it wouldn't surprise me if it dipped below £200 by then but who knows?

Its so thin, everytime you put your mp3's on it, it disappears in the toilet for 30mins.
" 5.1 Dolby surround sound system"

Intrigued. So this thing comes with 5 surround speakers and a subwoofer?
Isn't the Oppo Finder the thinnest smartphone?

I think it means if you have those Surround sound headphones, it will work nicely. Or you can probably hook it up to a sound system.

Huawei Support is awful, I would never trust them again. They release the ICS update for about an hour on the website, and pulled the whole lot as it corrupted phones. Killed the dictionary.

No offer of a roll-back, and they ignore customers.

Sure it looks a great phone, but if you need help your be in trouble.

The LTE (Dual Core Krait 2GB ram) version of the S3 is better specs (Other than the screen) but the Tegra3 one may or may not be better depending on the task.
Another review, from Engadget:

youtube.com/wat…N7w

Interesting what the guy says at the end. The "P" stands for Platinum and there will be a better "D" model (Diamond) which will likely have a quad core CPU and will be trying to compete with the S3/iphone 5 etc.


soon there will be a Huawei Ascend P1(LTE Version), which supports the 4G from EE
These specifications are a bit wrong, as others have pointed out. It's not a 1080p screen, it's a quarter of that (hence the qHD moniker) and it doesn't include a surround sound system, just support for the standard over HDMI (as do all Android phones with HDMI/MHL, as far as I'm aware...)

which is quoted as better than iphone screen
Typical clueless fandroids thinking specs = everything.

Looks a great mid range smartphone. Although I can see it benefiting from JB a lot more, like a lot of underpowered Android devices.

Couldn't agree more. It's like trying to say that an American Muscle car is "better" than say, a Lotus, because it has bigger numbers (hp, torque, capacity yadda yadda). Reality is we all know which would complete the task of getting round a track quicker. It's so much to do with the interface and the ecosystem....specs just need to be within certain tolerances, that's all.

EDIT: Added different sources so the fandroids have no straws left to clutch. Pathetic.

Wrong.

If you do some research, the iPhone screen in the newer model actually has the best screen available in a mobile device in terms of colour accuracy, brightness (over twice as bright as the s3), and has by far the best readability outdoors.

Hahaha.

Quoting an image from Macrumours to compare the iPhone to anything as a product of your 'research' is a complete fail.

"Lab tests & measurements: very good"

Possibly the worst test comparison I've ever seen.

On an open and a fully customizable OS like Android, the specs do matter. Especially as these OEM's love to put a heavy Skin on their phones.

You will notice the difference between that extra GB of ram and having a quad-core processor or not. But it does depend on what type of user you are.

I do understand on iOS and WP specs do not matter as much, but Android is a totally different beast.

"There's one thing that you should keep in mind however - the DisplayMate tests only judge the screens based on its accuracy. In reality, many people prefer the extra punch offered by the over saturated colors on AMOLED screens, even if they are not as accurate."

To a certain extent I'd agree. However the likes of the Galaxy S3 still runs like crap despite being quad core. TouchWiz has it crippled.

I'm assuming the Huawei phones come with vanilla ICS + a few custom apps? Specs shouldn't matter as much if it is.

My original point was that the Android fanboys regularly claim superiority over other platforms purely based on specs alone, most recently being when the iP5 was revealed as having a dual core CPU, which resulted in mass hysteria amongst the fandroids. Then they all went quiet when the benchmarks came out.

So the iPhone display is still better then, as my original post stated.

I have the Galaxy S3 and TouchWiz is almost perfect apart from the fact that the home screen redraws often, because of the low availability of free Ram. Here is where 2BG of ram will come in handy. However putting on a light custom rom, the phone is just amazing, so I can see where you're coming from. However it is good that companies are having spec wars with their phone, and will be excellent for technology/mobile as a whole in the future.

I still believe the Quad-Core Galaxy S3 is better then the iPhone 5's A6 Processors, if I am not mistaken. IMO there is no need to compare the specs of two different types of OS like Android and iOS. Claiming superiority over iPhone because of specs is just amateurish, there are many other things that can be used.
