Huawei Ascend II Pros And Cons Review

The Huawei Ascend II has major pros and cons that you need to know. Our thorough specifications review underscores which good points there are to like and which not-so-good points you should keep a closer eye on.

Let's Look at the Cons:

Lower memory:

Included memory ( 160MB (unconfirmed) on-board memory ) is too small by smartphone standards.

The Huawei Ascend II comes with a 5-megapixel camera, but does it have enough memory?

Enough memory for its ambitions?:

The Huawei Ascend II boasts a 5-megapixel camera, but you will eventually have to buy a memory card (up to 32GB) to save your pictures because the included storage memory is only 160MB (unconfirmed)...

Slower smartphone:

Not too long ago, this smartphone's processing specs would have seemed ok, but in comparison to most recent smartphones, this 600MHz Qualcomm processor with just 256MB of RAM looks a little pale.

Smaller battery:

Yes, the 1400 mAh battery will last a certain time, but given this phone's 3.5-inch screen, we would have expected a bigger battery.

Higher radiation level:

Even if the connection between mobile phone radiation and cancer hasn't been formally proven yet, it may interest you to know that there are many cell phones with a SAR rating lower than the 1.34 w/kg recorded for this phone (1.60 w/kg is the highest possible SAR rating -- phones with a SAR higher than 1.60 cannot be sold).

Smaller touch screen:

We hope you have small fingers, since the Ascend II's touch screen has a smaller display surface to press on than many other smartphones. According to our calculations, it has a 5.65 square inch-display while

Pros:

Weighs less than the iPhone 4S:

Of course, it doesn't offer as many features as the latest iPhone (the "4S"), but since it only weighs 120 grams, it is more lightweight than the iPhone 4S (which weighs in at 140 grams).
