Review: Huawei Ascend

Form Basics Extras Video Tour Wrap-Up Comments

The music player on the Huawei Ascend is the stock Android music player. Playback controls are fairly basic, and the player lacks advanced features like equalizer settings. But there are great search options from the player to find more music on YouTube or to search the Internet for more information about your favorite artists. Huawei does provide a nice looking music widget to control the player from the homescreen.

The Ascend uses a 2.5mm headphone port. A 2.5mm port always evokes a “what were they thinking?” response from me. Huawei does include a set of earbuds that fit the port, with an inline microphone, but I’d rather skip the hard, plastic buds and go for a port that will fit my own favorite headphones, thank you.

There is no music store on the Ascend. The Amazon MP3 store is not preloaded on this phone, though you can find it in the Android App Market, and there is no music download service from Cricket. There is a download store for ringtones, but nothing for full-length tracks.
