Huawei Vision

 

With an aluminium unibody design, this is the best-looking phone Huawei has ever made.

The look of the interface isn't a patch on HTC Sense either. It's a bit too angular and too busy. Huawei needs to learn the "less is more" motto before it'll stop us from using custom launchers on its phones, wiping out their additions.

Huawei Vision

 

Huawei has revealed that it plans to launch its first high-end smartphone in the UK, which'll officially land dubbed the Huawei Vision.

Although its specs are still to be confirmed, the hotly-anticipated handset has already firing up the rumour mill. According to online speculation, it'll arrive rocking a 3.7-inch WVGA touchscreen, which will display Huawei's "own custom 3D interface"....

The Huawei Vision's curved touchscreen and unibody aluminium design are certainly great features at this low price. However, its a shame the touchscreen isn't always responsive as it often results in a frustrating user experience.

Huawei Vision review: Farsighted

 

With Incredibly Fast and About to Take Off written across their flag, Huawei took this year's MWC by a storm. Firing up on all cores - four of them, in case you've missed it - they pinned themselves emphatically on the Android map with an impressive...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 3.7" 16M-color capacitive LCD touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels) ; Android OS v2.3.5 Gingerbread ; SPB Shell 3D launcher preloaded ; Qualcomm Snapdragon...

Below-par sunlight legibility ; No dedicated camera key ; No video calling out of the box ; Non-user-replaceable battery ; SPB Shell 3D launcher looks messy ; Non-hot-swappable microSD slot

We repeatedly compared the Huawei Vision to a year-old package. Similarities with the HTC Desire S are too many to ignore. The unibody design is just the tip of the iceberg. The two handsets are nearly identical on the inside too. It almost feels like...

Sprint PCS Vision Smart Device PPC-6700

 

The EV-DO and Wi-Fi-enabled PPC-6700 is powerful and versatile enough to be the only device you take on the road.

Thumb-friendly sliding keyboard Wi-Fi and EV-DO • Improved Windows Mobile 5.0 OS • Good battery life

Screen a little slow to change orientation and Some problems connecting with Wi-Fi

Huawei Vision

 

The Huawei Vision is the difference between cheap and great value. The handset packs power and performance into a sturdy unibody design at a great price.

Great value ; Sturdy build and great performance ; Touchscreen feels great

Camera is poor ; No options for media sharing ; Only 2GB of memory included for media and apps

Allphones is the exclusive-release partner for the Huawei Vision in Australia, and if you pop into a store to take a look, make sure you compare it to the Nexus S while you're at it.
