I brought this mobile 2-3 days back, under 6K (not from Flipkart, but wanted to give the reviews, as this will surely be helpful for all). This is superb phone, it has all things you can ask for in high end phones. Temple run runs like anything., so smooth, that I think even high end phones won't allow. Angry Birds is also very smooth (pre installed).
It has 1000 MHz (1GHz), Snapdragon CPU (Scorpion) with Graphics processor: Adreno 205.
What else you need from a phone of this kind.
Sensors: Gravity sensor, proximity sensor, light sensor and digital compass.
Come with 4GB SD card pre installed from the company.
Has LED flash.
Of course GPS.
All applications till now I downloaded and used were very smooth.
now what is not so good is, its camera, as its 5MP, but, does not seem to to as good as 5 MP, (I think this problem is with all phones, so may be ignored).
This is my initial review. And its bit too early to know of any problems. So I will be writing another review after 1-2 months. Will try best to write, sply if I get responses and support for this review.
You can feel free to ask me any queries related to this, Will try answering to best of my knowledge.
Rereview after using abt 2 months :
rating decreased from 5 star to 4 (wanted to make it 3.5)
All good points covered above. now the shortcomings:
GPS not good...
on subway surf and temple run2 touch does not work well, sometimes touch does not respond at all.
camera quality is just ok (not good) as I mentioned earlier.
rest all things seems fine.
I dint buy this phone from Flipkart, but i wish to share my experience with you all for a better review.
1. Guys reading into various Huawei Products reviews, you may be confused whether the phone has dual mic option which needs to be turned off everytime when you re-start the phone. Its not so, this model doesn't have a dual mic. You can very well use turn off and turn it on and use it as a normal phone.
2.SPB Shell 3D launcher is amazing and the most highlighting feature of this phone. Which makes you engaged to keep playing with it often.
3. The Touch is extremely good and need not worry about it anytime you wont face any issues on it.
4. Some app's make the phone hang but not all apps.. recently from my usage when i try using Std Chartered Breeze app the phone hangs.
5. The phone takes some seconds say 1-5 secs to respond as you run many applications behind. which are google apps, FB, G+,Nimbuz and many more. Kindly ensure you select what apps you to be on throughout and what not.
6. All apps are interlinked for every other service. Say Location services is an eg, once you turn it on. Google Maps is turned on. These apps lowers the speed and consumes the RAM.
7. The camera quality is decent and not worse.
8.Battery back up last for a day easily with minimum usage.
Please ensure what is your requirement towards any mobile which you purchase. And just don blindly look into dual core,quad core, 8GB 16GB int memory and stuff.
Any day when you spend more on mobile you should be ready to bare the loss as well. Hence please know your requirements of a smartphone and go for higher spec mobile. I don think so everyone who buy a Samsung Note 2 or S3 uses appropriately. They also use the same FB and blah blah. No point in spending 30,000-40,000 INR on a mobile when you get all the facilities with a better build quality of a known brand for 8990INR.
Hope this would help you to know on this device.
This phone is based on Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255. I have not used this model. But I have used other huawei phones and the build quality of Huawei is as good as Samsung. Huawei is the largest telecommunications equipment maker in the world, after having overtaken Ericsson. The GPU of the phone is Adreno 205.. obviously this a good choice for gamers.

I'm using this phone from last 4 weeks and let me tell you guys and ladies that "The Huawei Vision" is one of my best phone ever I have.
What's good in Vision?
-Performance (1GHz), Snapdragon CPU (Scorpion)
-Graphics processor: Adreno 205.
-Aluminium alloy unibody (The Best, to avoid heat-up)
-Sound clarity (while playing music using headphone)
-3D graphics (Triple 3D experience touch panel with curve, 3D UI,3D games)
-3.7" Ultra Smooth Curved Touch (extremely good and need not worry about it anytime you wont face any issues on it.) Best Display Screen every (not sure if it's gorilla glass but really good).
What's bad in Vision?
-Poor cam [ok without flash, not ok with flash (poor flash)]
-Average battery [you have to keep charging every single day, usually during whole night without any use of your phone, your battery get lower between 10% to 15%.
-Poor Speaker (You can hear very low, even if your volume is higher but the clarity is very good even if it's low).
-It's very hard to find screen guard and flip cellphone cover in market for Vision.
-You should have real battery saver app (without advt.) in Vision.
-You should have good antivirus app (without advt.) to maintain good performance.
-You should have good cookies, temp files and history cleaner app (without Advt.) to get good results from Vision.
-Good to have headphone or Bluetooth wireless headphone to communicate someone on call. (Voice Clarity is very good on using headphone or wireless Bluetooth head phone.)
Overall, It's very good phone under 9 Grand in terms of performance, graphic, ultra smooth touch and sound clarity.
The only reason that I am writing this review is because, frankly the only thing that helped me finally decide to try out this phone (thank god) was the reviews of other people on the web, especially here.
Guys, this is the best value for money phone out there right now, but let me explain how. I recently lost my iphone which i have been used to for the last two years and frankly no phone in the below 15k range can even match the quality i am used to in a phone but after having an experience of having my iphone stolen from my pocket in the metro, i was in no mood to invest heavy. Thus i gave myself a short period of 6-8 months where i can save up (and wait for technology to speed up in that while) and decided to go experience the android phone market in a hope to at least get introduced to those kind of phones.
Since now i was looking for features in a low budget, this phone is epic in that range. Read the review and believe me everything on gsmarena is true, all the specs are above quality, i would rate the looks as 8 on 10, quality and ease of use as 7 of 10 and features as 10 on 10 just because it has everything you can dream of in a phone which even though online is available in the range of 6-7k but i purchased for only Rs 4000 (and that too brand new).
I will be honest that exactly the next day i noticed a small defect on my screen (a small brightspot) and realised why i got such a good deal but frankly i dont mind because its been 4 days and the phone works like a charm and my first experience with android is going great. Wont even go to the warranty or back to the store because i dont need to as my requirement is short term.
The most important thing guys, for me Temple Run 2 or an amazing phone camera or heavy graphics is not important, for me good internet speeds, comfortable touch and other phone sensors, details in ease for typing and using notes, reading on the phone etc are the criterion. I frankly have only played angry birds on this till now but if i wanted a gaming phone, i would not keep a low budget in the first place. Lastly since am an ex-iphone user my quality standards are indeed high so i assure i shall update this review after 3-4 months to judge the sustainability of this phone. Thanks for reading and if you want a phone for an year and want to experience a great overall smartphone then this is a great buy because the company which made this is the worlds biggest telecommunications giant.
