That's because this smartphone duo marked a change in Huawei's product strategy – and it didn't involve budget-friendly blowers. Fast forward six months later and the skinny smartphone with the protruding chin is almost ready for its official release. It may tick the stylish and powerful boxes, but can it hold its own against the high end Android army?</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/phone/news-nugget/new-video-can-huaweis-ascend-p1-make-its-mark </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/ascend-p1/new-video-can-huaweis-ascend-p1-make-its-mark/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/ascend-p1/new-video-can-huaweis-ascend-p1-make-its-mark/news#comments Ascend P1 Huawei Wed, 01 Aug 2012 10:59:53 +0000 Lucy Hedges 422168 at http://www.stuff.tv Huawei Ascend P1 http://www.stuff.tv/huawei-ascend-p1/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> A stylish and powerful Android that&#039;s just one step behind the leaders of the pack </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Huawei-Ascend-P1-trio.jpg?1372188363" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="184" height="1253" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Huawei-Ascend-P1-2_2.jpg?1372188363" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="629" height="1116" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Huawei-Ascend-P1-3_2.jpg?1372188363" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="646" height="1080" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Huawei-Ascend-P1-Main_4.jpg?1372188363" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/tony-horgan" title="View user profile.">Tony Horgan</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Bucking the supersized smartphone trend, Huawei’s P1 squeezes the latest Ice Cream Sandwich Android OS and a dual-core brain into a shell that won’t have your pockets bursting at the seams.</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £370.00 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-price-from"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 0 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">8 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-pros"> <div class="field-label">Pros:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Svelte in the extreme </div> <div class="field-item even"> Vibrant display </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Solid, if not overwhelming performance </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-cons"> <div class="field-label">Cons:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Minuscule amount of onboard storage </div> <div class="field-item even"> Choppy video capture </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Thin </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>If it weren’t for the camera lens and a matching bulge at the bottom, the P1 would be an incredibly thin phone.
