  • Huawei Ascend G615 or honor 2 is best ?in my country the have same price and the honor 2 have 1GB ram. Thanks.

  • Of course it has Skype. What planet are you living on? It's an Android phone so you just download the Skype app.

  • Does this make skype video call

  • go to jarir bookstore ;)

  • Is this phone already available here in riyadh ksa?where i can buy this here in riyadh?

  • Hello. Can you explain me how to update it to Jelly Bean Emotion? I have 4.0 yet. Thank you.

  • How have you rooted your G615?

  • i love this phone so much! i wanted to have this phone.

  • I am the proud owner of a Huawei G615 routed and already running OS 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Emotion UI, and I have some corrections to make to the analysis of the device. It has HDR option from the BSI 8 mega pixel camera that takes fantastic photos, dual microphone for noise suppression, apparently has gorilla glass or something quite similar since it is very resistant to scratches, it has a GPU with 16 cores and it has FM Radio. In relation to the price / quality, in my point of view, currently in the market, there is no better one. Huawei day by day is becoming superior.

  • gsmarena please make a review for this phone :( ... this phone's performance is almost like s3 or nexus 4 , it has a good gpu too ..

  • please check its specifications i.e dual sim etc. than posted again with correction

  • It DOES NOT have Gorilla Glass. If it does why is not in the product specifications from the manufacturer??

  • You might wanna correct specs of Huawei g615 it has corning gorilla glass,most probably 2,LTE,video HDR,DLNA and Fm radio.Also would be nice if gsmarena staff make a review since this handset performs better then samsung galaxy s3 in the most relevant domains.

  • When will there be a update to android 4.1 Jelly Bean?

  • Very nice phone.... i am using it from 3 weeks and i love this phone. Performance is really good and benchmark of this phone is almost like S3. Now am waiting for jellybean update. There is an unofficial jellybean update but google play store is not installed in this update. This update can be found here I bought this phone for 250 euro from Germany.

  • this phone have corning gorilla glass,I read about it on some German site!

  • Hello from Italy, I have it, it's a good smartphone. Excellent clarity for the phone part and good antenna, Android version almost stock, GREAT speakers (headphones are just BAD, what do you expect at the price, need to replace with something better), very good earpiece, nice design, good handling (the power button could have been placed to the other side), good battery life (except for gaming), very good performance (even for gaming), average-to-good camera but with low dynamic range (burned highlights), very good secondary camera. Does it have the radio FM? Yes. Support micro SD and the battery can be removed, it supports USB mass storage. Frankly it could cost far more (and it's perfect for geeks like me). Hope Huawei will support it with updates, it need a nice customer support to catch Samsung. It has a very good software called HiSuite for syncing everything and make a complete backup of the telephone. An happy owner.

  • the radio is avaliable and i bought it about 1 month ago, it's a great phone! really fast but the free ram sometimes reach 0... i hope the jelly bean upgrade will come soon

  • It has standard sim slot not a mini-slot

  • ?! This phone is a quad-core 1,4 Ghz and this is fast, also we are not anymore in the 2008-2010 when the first touchscreen phones sucked.

  • Hi how are you acutally i don't know about the mobiles and plese let me know about the touch screen is relaying good or not becouse its to slow. thanks

  • In India, this phone is released or what

  • 100% sure (I am a G615 owner). The data-sheet is definitely wrong on the radio and the screen subject.

  • Hey Marco,I read some good reviews about G615 and Ive been planning to buy it for a while.My only concern is the audio/speakers.I read that's poor.Can you tell me/us smth more about the audio performance please.Are you satisfied overall with it?Just that,cos I also think this G615 is a great deal for the price even if now you can find a Samsung SIII for 360� in Italy! Thanx!

  • Hey guys, this is marco from italy! I need to mention this is an amazing mobile with perfect specification for advanced smartphone users too. I would rate it design : 7, Features: 9.5, Performance: 10. It lacks the modern design. The accessories given with this mobile sucks really (charger & Headphone). But i have a good pair of Marshall Headgears which substitutes that. Final Verdict: If someone wants a mobile which should perform well and under budget of 300 euros. I recommend this smartphone. It speaks off.

  • I am planning to buy this smartphone, because of the hardware specification and cost. Already hands on reviews make good opinion about this one. Soon I will post my experience ! ;)

  • each of us has its own option which phone to buy. wide varieties to chose from. dont make a comment that these phones are not good...

  • same specs like SGS3

  • In Germany it cost 300 Euro, in my country Moldova it costs 310 Euro.

  • is it have gorilla glass?

  • specification is well but the price is huge

  • Upgradable to v4.1 (Jelly Bean)...we all know what that means.Upgradable how?Like they upgraded G300,G302,G330,g600,P1 etc.Huawei makes excelent phones... so buy a Samsung or HTC

  • not only in china mate!!! is available in europe even in italy i have it... its really good!!! maybe materials are not the best but are solid and even better assembled than samsung phones

  • its available in China only (i bought it in China). i guess can buy in Hong Kong Too.

  • Is that for sure because gsmarena

  • where to buy it

  • I confirm FM radio is on board.

  • PLS can somebody answer .does it have FM radio

  • where to buy this phone?

  • i got it yesterday, great device. totally satisfied. real value for money device. Thanks to HUAWEI.

  • couldn't agree more

  • i totally agree

  • LG L9 is a dual core , while huawei ascend G615 is a quad core. It has gorilla glass 2.

  • this or lg 4x hd?

  • In response to anonymous that this phone is a steal. You can rephrase it like this phone is an eye opener on how others are robbing you.

  • What's the GPU IN dis

  • Looking at the specs and huawei's pricing(generally) this phone is a real steal.

  • Looking at the specs and huawei's pricing(generally) this phone is a real steal.

  • It is the same phone with Huawei Honor 2, the 1GB version..

  • Beside the on board RAM (1 GByte vs 2 GByte), what is the difference in between this model (G615) and Honour2?

  • Its interesting how people can only say "there are bigger screens, so its bad because its got a smaller screen" - like the megapixel mania with cams, just no interest in the quality you get. Same with Android - google made a good job making people believe you have to have the latest android version. E voila: "only ICS? bad deal". Yeah, because before Jelly Bean nobody was able to use his phone... Its certainly a very good deal for this price (and its got a replacable battery and SD card support).

  • This phone has a very, very similar spec to LG's P760 L9. What about the screen? Is it plastic like the L9 P760, or is it hardened glass?

  • wow what a handset

  • So it doesn't run the latest version of android OS whats your point? If you wan't the latest updates from Google than go out and buy a nexus 4.

  • Why not this phone preinstalled new android 4.2 Jeally Bean ? Screen size not good . Even 5" screen size is better than 4.5". My self it is 65% smart phone. Not a gd phone.

  • HiSilicon GC4000

  • Camera?

  • Price in Germany is about 299�... I think it's a deal...

  • what is the gpu ??

  • ICS at launch, bad deal

  • nice phone..but the specs a bit lower than current new phone...if given a good prices,i'll call it deal.. :)
