It looks like Huawei are going from strength to strength these days and it would appear that they are all set to start promoting the Ascend P1 Android smartphone on television.

The following video cropped up today on Huawei's YouTube channel and like many other smartphone commercials around at the moment it doesn't focus so much on the actual device but trys to portrait a message. The message here is quite clear:

The Ascend P1 is beauty meets brains -- proof that technology and good looks can go hand-in-hand.

I think Huawei are making a lot of sense here as the device certainly matches up to its image. With a dual-core 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4460 Cortext-A9 processor, measuring 7.69mm thin and 64.8 mm long, combined with a 4.3-inch super AMOLED 960 x 540 touch screen with Corning® Gorilla® Glass, an 8-megapixel BSI rear-facing camera and Dolby Mobile 3.0 + 5.1 surround sound technology the Ascend P1 is not a phone to be sniffed at.

You can check out the new TV commercial below and if you didn't see our full review of the device you can do so here.

Huawei set to kick off TV advertising for the Ascend P!


This has a much better spec sheet than the Droid X.. And what's so bad about keeping a good-sized phone and having updated internals?

Unless you're of the type that thinks the Note was a step in the right direction, but still a little small, then this is probably a welcome device for people who are scared of 4.8" monsters.

The only spec you can see is the display. You spend hours a week looking at the display. Why get a 2 year old low def screen?

In 2009, 4.0 " seemed big. In 2010, 4.3" was called a monster. In 2012, 5.3" seemed big.

Actually, it's more like a slightly better Galaxy S two, so if you were thinking of getting an S2 today, this might be worth considering as an alternative. (It comes with ICS as standard and it works, whereas updating a Galaxy S2 to ICS is suicide, plus the S2 only has 800x480 in the same size screen)
And don't forget that it's got that 30% extra battery life tech.

I may buy a device that was partially or fully made in China but I'll be damned if I'll buy from a Chinese based company.... NO THANKS!
