Huawei ascend P1 lte

Anybody using this or using any huawei phone? How is the warranty support?

$48 on flexi lite makes it the cheapest lte phone currently. .

How is it serving you? Since they are identical other then lte has lte. Lol

Read thru Huawei Singapore Facebook and the posts are scary mostly complaining about the warranty support...

eh. i just buy nia. overall very good lah.

even in powersave mode, the phone is still very smooth.

battery life is good. touch screen is abit weird though.

the screen is excellent but suffers from mura effect. alot of super amoled screens suffer from this.
even my sister's S3 suffers from the mura effect.

rear camera is very good. front cam is ok.

the phone is very light. even lighter than my sister's S3.

the wifi suffers from one thing. if your router wifi set to wpa2 authentication, got connection problem. need to be very close to get reception.
just set to WEP and everything will be fine.

the rear speaker isnt that good. but we rarely use it anyway. phone calls are crystal clear.

phone comes with i think B103/B105 firmware. remember to update to B219.

How much did you buy it for? Why but the one without lte?

Most reviews rate it passable but nothing to shout about. So what i am
worried about is the warranty support

Thanks for all the feedback!

$0 for the phone @ $39 a month.

LTE version the phone need $98 which i dont have. t
hat time left $50+ not enough for LTE.
anyway, 3G is enough for me.

btw i sign up with M1.
they give moi free portable battery 5200mah, clear case and screen protector.
although the phone itself has a screen protector applied for you.

Been using the P1 LTE for a week. A good phone overall.

Pros :
Excellent screen, very good battery life, fast and smooth, clear sound, , very good benchmark scores, best value for money currently (IMHO)
Cons :
Not a top-tier brand

I switched from iphone 4S to the Huawei P1 LTE.... Honestly.... my experience with this phone is so much better.

It has a much more consistent 3G connectivity as compared to my iphone which is almost always a small circle.

Much less dropped calls.

Only thing is the branding and the lack of accessories......

As for support, no idea yet.

Pros:

Probably the cheapest 4G phone you can find.

Uses normal simcard (not micro sim, not nano sim)

Near unmodified stock android

Micro SD slot supporting up to 64GB

Very fast connectivity (when using USB tethering).

Manageable size, you can do messaging with one hand quite easily...

Removable batteries, you can buy spare batteries for backup.

Cons:

a bit unresponsive when dragging down the notification page.

Wifi tethering takes quite a long time to activate.

Wifi is not dual band (not a big issue, most smart phones do not anyway)

No announcement of jelly bean update.

Not sure if its a phone wifi issue, on my 50mbps fiber network, i clock a alittle bit more than 50 mbps on my pc, but on the the huawei phone, it clocks less than 10mbps.

Just used the Hua Wei Ascend P1 LTE for less than 1 week and now, it's dead. Was playing a fighter pilot game while charging and suddenly it went blank maybe due to low bat. tried to charge the phone for 2 days. Only the red light indicator lights up and when I try to switch on, the red light blinks but did not start up. Going to Chinatown to see how can this matter be resolved.
Definetely within the waranty period. Crossing my fingers. Hope they dont come out with any cock and bull story.

I cant find covers for this phone. have been asking around hp shops.
