Huawei Ascend GX1

There seems to be an ongoing battle between smartphone manufacturers and bezels these days. Huawei already took a notable step toward eliminating them on their flagship Ascend Mate 7, and it looks like they’ve followed it up nicely with the newly announced Huawei Ascend GX1. How does an 80.5% screen to body ratio sound? That’s even better than the LG G3, which boasts a 76.4% screen to body ratio.

The screen of the Huawei Ascend GX1 itself is nothing special. It’s an HD (720 x 1280) resolution screen stretched out over 6 inches. This results in a rather pedestrian pixel density of 245ppi. But, come on! Those bezels, right!

The processor does show some promise though. The Ascend GX1 features a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 quad core CPU, making it one of the first in a wave of smartphones powered by 64-bit CPUs. It also comes with 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and 8mp/2mp cameras.

At the moment, the Huawei Ascend GX1 is only available in China through Vmall, their official online store. The price is somewhere around Php11.2k when converted directly, although expect that price to go up if Huawei ever manages to bring the phone here.

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
