Test: Huawei Ascend P1 LTE

With LTE Huawei Ascend P1 to latch on to the current 4 g trend.The result is a phone that impresses in many ways – except in the case of a stable 4 g/lte connectivity.

Chinese Huawei also has decided to jump on the 4 g bandwagon with its Huawei Ascend p1 lte. This is largely the same phone Huawei Ascend p1 and p1 ‘s from last spring, but with some significant differences. Where spring p1-models were two slender creations (Huawei described the p1 ‘s with its thickness on 6.7 millimeters as the world’s thinnest phone). Ascend p1 lte is a real steak in comparison with these. The phone is longer, wider and rougher (132.5 x 65.4 9.9 x dimensions mm) and gives a real impression with their design in black plastic. As the name suggests, the handset equipped with lte technology. When the phone came to the Editor used my colleague Erik it for a few days ch succeeded recorded a peak of 67 megabits per second of download speed (with Broadband School Lens application). It is really impressive. When I try, I’ll Ascend p1 lte as the top of a download speed of 36.8 megabits per second (Speedtest.net app). This is still good, but pretty far from the boasting numbers that operators happy signs with.

Perfect to stream video with

You may be wondering what you do with a 4 g handset to. Good question. An argument to suggest that it is time to jump on the lte bandwagon is that the 3 g network in many places are as crowded as Stureplan in Stockholm a Löningen weekend. Please excuse that I will pull my Stockholm perspective when it comes to the parables, but it is mainly in the major cities (Gothenburg, Malmo and Stockholm) as we can see by how congested 3 g networks are. This can actually 4 g/lte make a difference. Most clearly in a positive sense becomes it in rush hour traffic, where 3 g coverage can sometimes take a big nosedive. Another practical use is if you want to share your network to other devices. While others swear over lack of access can I share share the internet from your phone and then streaming Netflix movies on my Tablet without any problems. But not everything is gold and green forests as far as the Huawei Ascend p1 lte. On a number of occasions during my test phone is dropped coverage altogether when it switches between 3 g and 4 g networks. To Huawei’s defense we can tell you that their 4 g handset is not the only one who had a problem with this. But the fact remains: lte networks suffer from some childhood diseases. These will most likely be fixed in due time, but right now, set it to a lot of inconvenience for users.

Pure Android version – but with a little extra snacks

If we leave the lte behind us for a while-what is then the Ascend p1 lte to offer? The phone has a 4.3 inch large screen of type superamoled (resolution 960 x 540). Just as on many spirit superamoledskärmar I feel the colors slightly saturated, but this bothers me very much. The screen has generally good color reproduction and viewing angle.

Under the hood of p1 lte, we find a dual-core Cortex-a9 processor that is clocked at 1.5 ghz. Thus, no soundtrack, but the benchmarks we conducted show that Ascend p1 lte in all cases appear in the Middle when it comes to Android-wonder that is current at the moment.

Ascend p1 running Android 4.0.4 – also known as Ice Cream Sandwich-like operating system. On top of the Android UI has been Emotion ui. For the Ascend p1 lte, this means very little. It has added some clever solutions – as a lock screen with shortcuts to messaging, address book and camera, as well as a switch panel, where you can change the settings for including Bluetooth, wifi and gps directly into notifieringslisten. But basically, it’s a pure Android version that sits in the handset.

More interesting is the camera app, which offers some settings to play with; you have among other things the possibility to gps-tag your photos, shoot in hdr mode and set different types of white balance. Ascend p1 lte has a main camera at 8 Megapixels which is really nice. The pictures show on good sharpness and contrast even when I shoot outdoors in the evening. The camera’s autofocus is effective, but rather slow in comparison with more expensive models such as htc One x +. You can also shoot in full hd resolution with the camera (1920 x 1080 pixels). The result is clearly accepted, even if the image has a certain gulstick and have a little difficulty handling sharpness when switching from light to darker parts of their environment.

Really nice – but with deficiencies

I have previously written that Huawei Ascend p1 lte does not belong to the top tier when it comes to Android mobiles. But that does not mean that p1 lte fail to deliver a good experience when it comes to the most common applications like photo, games and Web surfing. The other way around. One thing that impresses Ascends is battery life. I had my concerns because it is a 4 g handset we are talking about, but our battery test – where we are streaming a YouTube recordings until the battery put on dazzling displays of – 6 hours and 13 minutes. Huawei writes that it is the powerful battery in 1 930 mAh and smart algorithms that is behind this. We can only conclude that the only phone that actually achieved a better result is Samsung’s success phone Galaxy s3 (6 hours and 30 minutes). In addition to this offer also Ascend p1 lte on some pre-installed apps that are really useful, like file manager, a dlna app and All Backup.

In the case of the handset trump card – 4 g/lte connectivity – I feel shattered. When it all works it is – pardon the language-darned handy to be able to take advantage of a 4 g connection. But the experience of dropping coverage altogether in time and out of season leaves a bitter aftertaste.

“On the other hand”

Erik M: Technology leaders are the ones that drive development forward. Huawei is still to create a name for themselves and they are betting on the technology front design and useful custom services to differentiate against competitors. A little pity, but I’m guessing that the design and services will come as the company matures more. Android gives anyway because a good range of apps and services. Just as Donald I bumped into some problems when the phone is switched between 4 g and 3 g networks, but I appreciated a lot to use the phone with 4 g as a modem to your computer.
