My old Iphone (S4) gave up the ghost overnight. So I had to find a cheap replacement quickly. This should be enough for the time being. That was the thought. And what should I say? I am thrilled! br>The photos are okay, the video recordings are decent. At least enough for home use, I prefer to do the rest with my camera anyway.
After month three with the Huawei I don’t want to switch back to Apple and the temporary solution will hopefully become a long lasting relationship. Here the price-performance ratio is unbeatable. The cell phone runs smoothly without hanging up. I can reduce waiting times on the pleasantly large display in between because the Kindle app looks neat and tidy. Surfing the Internet is also easy for me (I don’t surf with the cell phone because I get blinded by it). The memory has been extended by a card, because it’s a bit small, but that’s okay for the price. In the meantime, I dropped the phone three times from a height of a good meter. It is robust! Nothing happens. Whereby I have to write that I bought the cover that comes with the phone, which protects the phone really well.
I’m also enthusiastic about the fast charging time of the battery.
Practical and bitch-free is the dual sim function.
The general handling is easy and self-explanatory, that even old women like me can handle it from the first minute.
Great part for little money.

I was so stupid and washed my business phone with it. This has never happened to me before :/ I used to have a Cubot cell phone next to my Samsung Note which I use privately. My previous cell phone had just served its purpose. … until it broke down. It had to be replaced quickly and then I saw this Huawei phone, reviewed it, read and bought it. This phone exceeds my expectations. The display is good and the touch is easy to use. The keyboard is also very good. In contrast to my Cubot this is an increase of at least 1000%. For the money you really can’t complain.
In any case, I’m now a Huawei fan 🙂
For people who don’t want to spend 300 Euros, this is a great thing. The cell phone can definitely keep up with the big ones.

What bothers me very little is that the display loses a bit of contrast when you hold it at an angle… of course you don’t have that with a high-quality cell phone… but it is no drama for the money 🙂

#### Update ###

Bought on 27.11.2015… yesterday evening the cell phone was plugged in for charging (cell phone still had about 12% battery) and this morning it was off and did not turn on anymore.

Charging cable changed, charger changed, battery removed, …, …, …, …, …,

The cell phone seems to be dead or the battery.
Have the cell phone actually only to make phone calls for my customers. I had to recharge the cell phone every 2-3 days if at all. It is a pity that it is already defective after more than half a year of little use. I hope it’s just the battery…
Stupid also that my Samsung Note 2 which is already 4 years old still holds like on the first day.

Now I have to somehow forward the other phone number to mine so I can receive calls… Beautiful sche#&amp,*÷e

I bought this phone at Amazon Warehousedeals. Super price and impeccable product. I can only recommend it! But now to the cell phone.
The workmanship is great and this creaking which all describe is hardly or not at all there, really not disturbing. Everything runs smoothly (except for Fruit Ninja, but this did not run smoothly with the old Samsung phone either). My favorite game Subwaysurfers runs great. You can move the apps/icons like contacts etc. around as you like. They are not fixed, as someone described. You have 4 or 5 screens, but they are enough. I do not need more. The great thing about Android 4.04 is that you can still move the apps to the SD card!!!!!!! Great, this is no longer possible with the new Android version. So I do not recommend to update if it is possible. From the 8 Gigabyte (internal memory) there are only about 5 Gigabyte left. But this way I can move everything to the sd-card (I have 32 gigabyte). The navi-program is free of charge and can also be used while cycling. I have this cell phone for 3 weeks now and I am fully satisfied. Especially for this price to have a 4-core processor is great. The size of the cell phone is just right. (I think the S3 is too big and the S2 is too small!)
Conclusion: Absolute recommendation to buy!

Here is a quick overview of the essential points of the smartphone: Good voice quality even with poor reception
Very good GPS module (fast fix and also works great in the forest)
Battery power is higher than other comparable models
Fast working speed with only a few hangers
br>-
Casing creaks when touching the camera >br>Camera is only mediocre but has a LED flash
Internet surfing a bit slow in some places
Touchscreen sometimes a bit slow
Launcher takes some getting used to (I’m using the Halo Launcher now)
GPS didn’t work in the beginning (battery out – wait 10 seconds – battery back in – switch it on – then it worked)

Neutral
– Thicker case (no disadvantage for me)
– Battery is charged relatively slow with the power supply.

Conclusion:
I am very satisfied with the device, especially for the price. But the Chinese still have to work on the processing. Especially the creaking case is sometimes a bit annoying. I haven’t had any interruptions or other interferences while calling, even if the reception was not that brilliant. Wlan works perfectly and stable and the data throughput is perfectly ok. With a 50Mbit line, 25 Mbit still arrive in the next room. So it’s good for home use in any case 😉

For the price, the phone is fully functional. Internet fast, easy handling. However, there is a problem, if you leave the internet function on, the battery is empty very quickly. The battery is very weak and not sufficient for an internet capable cell phone.

I have had this phone since September 2015 and I am quite satisfied with the battery performance. I have to recharge the battery after one day at the earliest, after three days at the latest. Of course you can also get the battery empty quickly, it depends on the usage, e.g. watching many videos and photos consumes a lot of power.

Actually there is nothing to complain about. Except for one very important point. And that annoys me very much. The advertised 4GB internal memory unfortunately turned out to be 2GB. And since you can’t move everything to the card, it’s a joke.

Everything is right, but with an additional memory card for a couple of Euro you can get along well. Use the file manager to move photos, music etc. to the external memory card and it fits. You can even move some apps to the external card and install new ones there.

Thanks Amazon for the great handling of the exchange.

My husband had decided to buy the Huawei Ascend G 615 and first received a Monday product where the GPS did not work. After a complaint and return to Amazon, we quickly got the new smartphone, which still works perfectly today! br>>br>>Here is a small overview of experiences:

+ unbeatable price/performance ratio!
+ good performance for our use
+ camera is completely satisfying for the use

0 battery okay, like we are used to from today’s smartphones (charge every day or every 2 days)

– no automatic update for Android (current: 4.0.4.)
– every now and then small quirks, e.g. suddenly Sim is locked again
– If the smartphone had no reception for some time, he won’t find it again later. Then you have to restart the phone.

It has a long lasting battery. That was important to me. The standby power consumption is very low. The phone charges quickly. The photos are sharp and good. It’s a camera phone. Of course you can perform all the usual functions with the smartphone. The workmanship is outstanding and flawless. The design with the colour gradients is also excellent. However, the phone is very smooth and slippery. You have to be careful that it does not slip out of your hand. A protective cover is recommended. A protective foil is already applied at the front. But you should possibly get a new one, because the foil is very susceptible to all kinds of grease marks and smears easily. There are better foils. To further data I write nothing. Everybody can look it up on the internet. It has current Android and Emui. Features like inductive charging and stereo speakers are missing. But one speaker is loud enough. The voice quality is also sufficient. The picture is sharp. No pixels to be seen. However, it could be a bit brighter in sunlight. All in all a super smartphone. Everyone has to decide for themselves what’s important to them about such a device and then decide which brand and model to choose.

Have the Smartphone now about 2 weeks. Bought it at Amazon WHD for 242€ :), it couldn’t be better. Simply unbeatable at that price. The Smartphone is well made, the display is bright, reacts well and is fast with the applications. Battery life lasts easily for one day. If you are really permanently playing games or surfing the internet, the battery will run down after 8 hours (at least for me) but there are several differences like the power saving functions and how the applications are used in everyday life. >br>>br>5 stars so far!

I’ve been testing the phone for more than 1/2 year now and with several firmware versions.

Originally the phone had 4.0.4 then an update (with considerable delay) to 4.1.2 was released – which had a GPS bug on top of that.

Now the 4.2.2 (B708) is up to date and some things have been fixed:

*) the battery life is (felt) twice as long (great!) )
*) speed and settings (restrictions) are much better now
*) GPS and BT are fast and easy to use

My impression is shared – actually I like the huawei with its own Emotion UI interface (reminds a bit of Apple) quite well … but I think the update policy is a cheeky one 😉 The Nexus 5 would be my dream device today 😉

am completely enthusiastic. the smartphone works technically flawlessly, no jerking or creaking .the connection to the internet is flawless over wifi as well as the mobile network, also the voice quality when making phone calls. the camera delivers beautiful photos, the design of the Huawei G 615 is simple but elegant, it lies by the light rubber coating on the back also pleasantly in the hand … from me a clear purchase recommendation for people who value quality and not great brands. In my opinion this smartphone does not need to hide behind the overpriced Samsung and Apple products…

So, if you are looking for a smartphone for everyday use and don’t expect anything special, this is the place to go.
For children/young people it is not suitable at all, because the internal memory is much too small and is only conditionally expandable. Therefore only 3 stars.

I can hardly say anything about the device itself, because I had to give it back immediately. After quite a long delivery time the Huawei Y625 arrived and made a nice impression. Unfortunately it did not work with any SIM card – it did not talk or text. You could receive messages but not send them. Only emergency calls were possible. Since we tried several SIM cards with the same result, the defect was obviously on the side of the device. What a pity, because I would have liked it actually very much. Unfortunately I could not wait for a new device, so I had to buy one in the store. The regulation with return label and credit note was done smoothly.

Got the smartphone now a few weeks and I am still very satisfied, everything works perfectly also the design is very nice (white with chrome edge). It is stored in a Huawei Y625 Original Suncase leather case, you just pull the flap and it comes out. I can only praise the camera, the haptic characteristics are very good, also the voice quality is good.

A little bit too little internal memory but apps can be moved to the memory card. No magnetic field sensor, no compass. But you can get over it. With much WLAN or 3G the 2000mah battery runs out of air relatively fast. Possibly get a 2nd battery or PowerBank. Nothing else to complain about.

I’ve tried a few smartphones now and none of them I really liked… P30 in my hand (not to compare with P30 Lite/Pro!) and immediately fell in love! For this display size, the phone is really small and light, lies so cool in the hand, design (of course it’s a matter of taste) but the backside is top made in terms of color and gradient, display fabulous, performance as well! Everything works perfectly, regular updates (Google security and Huawei updates) reception I had with no other phone as with this one… you notice that also when you are on the phone, absolute silence and quality perfect! Camera on Huawei level from another star! Can’t really say anything serious except the wireless charging and stereo speakers are missing otherwise BUY BUY BUY!

Nice cell phone, for ottonormal consumers completely sufficient and a top price performance ratio. The menu is a bit unusual at the beginning, but you can get into it quickly. And the everywhere criticized display is also sufficient. So if you are looking for a smartphone for surfing, YouTube and whatsapp, the HUAWEI is the right choice.

I have chosen this model because I don’t want an oversized model like the P30 Pro. But this display size is exactly right. Actually Huawei did everything right. Narrow design, very good camera, battery lasts long. I have to mention that the camera delivers best shots through and through, be it in nature or at home in bad light conditions. I especially like how photos of decorated and illuminated Christmas trees and buildings are taken. A dream for people who attach great importance to the quality of photos and who travel a lot. Beautiful rich and very sharp photos of Christmas market have my wife very enthusiastic. With the price at the moment one must be completely beside it, who accesses for other mark or model on the market.

I have bought the P30, it is from the processing super great, functions also super made, especially the camera is unbeatable, unfortunately, it is too small for me and can not convince even with the unique camera, if you need more display than camera. I watch many series while cleaning or even cooking, of course without doing anything, but the picture is just too small for me. I used to have the grade series from Samsung, until the displays got narrower, then the Mate 10 from Huawei and wanted another one with a big good screen, just because of my series. Unfortunately it is too small and so I went back again. Nevertheless, I would recommend it to someone who is satisfied with a smaller display.
