The Huawei Vision was born into a class of mid-range handsets, and it fits in quite nicely with the rest of its Android peers. As one reviewer points out, it’s almost as if Huawei's team deliberately sat-down to discuss which phones were worth trying to, for lack or a better term, emulate. And that’s how the Vision ended up with the kind of specs that it has.
If you take a look at its spec sheet, you won't see anything unique or extraordinary. The Vision’s features include a 1GHz dual-core CPU, 512MB of RAM, a 3.7-inch 800x480 touchscreen display, 5MP camera, 2GB of internal storage, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It has all the right wireless features with GPS, Bluetooth, and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, plus it also has microUSB connectivity and support for microSD cards.
The Vision may not be as powerful as the market’s leading high-end offerings or even as good-looking as some of the more stylishly designed models from the likes of LG, but overall it certainly looks to deliver plenty of bang for the buck.
Need to Know: Huawei Vision
1. Sizeable 3.7-inch 480x800 touchscreen display. (The Good)
2. Speedy dual-core processor to handle all software features. (The Good)
3. Limited amount of internal memory may get in the way of heavy multitasking. (The Bad)
4. Default software is an outdated version of Android. (The Bad)
Well-built, good-looking, non-user-replaceable battery
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 Huawei were skimming through the competition... More
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 Huawei were skimming through the competition until someone pointed at the Desire S and said "Let's do that one".
And yes, we can think of quite a few year-old phones that can do as well or better than the Huawei Vision. But the Vision itself isn't exactly brand new. It's our bad actually. We had it lying around for a while and it got pushed down the pecking order over and over.
Anyway, the Huawei Vision is well-built, good-looking and reasonably spec'd but that does not a smartphone hit make. The good news for Huawei is that they've got the smartphone hits duly covered as of late. Which means the Vision could safely focus on the lower midrange and not worry about what's to come.
Now, a change - albeit slow - is under way. The impressive showing Huawei had in Barcelona may put phones like the Vision back on the radar. The Huawei Vision is still a decent option in the lower midrange and one that can do a good job as someone's first smartphone. The difference is - and it's a big one - that it's safe to like it. And if you like it enough to stick around, Huawei will be more than happy to discuss your upgrade options.Less
Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.
