Review: Huawei Premia 4G

Huawei Premia 4G is an Android phone that has an attractive price tag of $99 after a $50 mail-in rebate at MetroPCS. The handset holds a few decent features like a 5-megapixel rear camera with flash, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter and a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor.

While taking the design of the Premia 4G, it is a black handset with rounded corners and has metallic-looking rim around the face. The dark grey back body has fine layer of plastic dots that provides grip.

The handset weighs just 5 ounces and doesn’t seem bulky. It can easily slip into your back pocket and you feel comfortable to carry it around during indoors.

The Premia 4G sports a 4-inch display and has 800×480-pixel resolution. Not a sharp display like what we see in premium smartphones, still it does just fine at indoors. Below the screen there are three capacitive navigation buttons- the Back, Home, and Menu.

The Premia 4G is pre-installed with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich that may not be the latest Android version, but it covers all the basics of an Android OS. It comes with a lot of Google services including Google Maps, Gmail, Google Calendar and many more. MetroPCS and Huawei have also packed the handset with a bunch of apps such as Metro’s MyExtras app, MetroWeb browser and many other online connections.

The 5-megapixel rear camera offers autofocus and produces quality images with pretty accurate color. But it doesn’t seem equipped to handle extreme close-ups in automatic mode.

Verdict

The Huawei Premia 4G has pretty good features and affordable price but it comes with short battery life and mediocre call quality.
