After using this phablet for a couple of days, I am really impressed by its speed and battery timing. Though the gigantic size makes it a little bit difficult of carry but the good news is that its very slim and light weight.

We will bring you a full review and hands-on video of this device very soon, so stay tuned.

    • Faizan

      The battery time is the highlight of this monster. I hope PP makes comparison with the Note 2 or galaxy grand.

      • Samsung guys aren’t lending devices for review anymore. So a comparison won’t be possible.

    price galat hai india mea 28000 ka hai or yaha 38000 ka ? ? ? ?

    • Price quoted by the official distributor. Huawei prices are low in Pakistan as compared to India and Europe.

    • HolierThanThough

      Yes…. surprisingly it is much cheaper in Pakistan.

      In India it is available for 49,400 Pakistan rupees.

    I am having Huawei Vision. The good thing about Huawei phones is the warranty is good as compare to other companies. The only cons about this phone it has non-removable battery so as Huawei Vision. My phone got battery problem and I don’t have any option to get the new battery which is much much expensive than the removable battery.

    • Arshad

      Do all Huawei have non-removable battery?

      • no, newer models like G510 and Y300 have removable batteries.

      • saliraza

        No I don’t think so other models may have the removable battery. BUT my serious advise never go for non-removable battery because if it gone dead you can’t repair it and the non-removable battery is hard to find in market and if you find it by change it will be way expensive than the normal phone batteries.
