    I have never owned a Huawei Phone. I have always bought either a Samsung or an iPhone. I have got a Huawei laptop and it is very quick and the battery lasts a long time, so I’m sure their phones will be very similar. How long does the battery last if it has been charged 100% at the start of the day?

      The Huawei P Smart 2021 battery life depends on what it is being used for. It can last 38.2 hours long for just 4G calling.  For online video playback whole day it lasts 16.6 hours long. For internet browsing the Huawei P Smart 2021 lasts 12 hours for whole day use.

      So it all depends on your usage on the Huawei P Smart 2021, but in general it lasts very long. Thank you for your comment and if you have any more question, please feel free to ask.

  2. Hello there! This is an informative post! I feel like this might be a country specific brand type of smartphone. Is this a brand that is available exclusively in Asia? I live in America so I haven’t heard of the Huawei P Smartphone series. The homepage looks kind of like the Android series type of phones. I like the the images you use that compare the different models of the Huawei brand together. It really puts things into perspective. Thanks for this educational piece!

      Huawei smartphone brand is a worldwide brand that came from the Asia region first. It is a very known brand and is currently the third best smartphone brand worldwide. Reason why it is less mentioned in America is because America banned the brand itself.

      The Huawei smartphone brand is still under Android. However, is not pre-installed with GMS (Google applications like Google play). It makes use of a HMS platform of which you can read more about it under Smartphone Platforms.

      Thank you comments and compliment for the post! Hope you would share with others regarding this post.

  3. Hello, Burnheart!
    I’ve always thought of Huawei as a second class brand of cellphones truth be told! iPhone and Samsung have been my choice for myself and my family. What do you think about the price-quality relation? Is it really worth opting for a Huawei?! The fact that the battery is non-removable annoys me… but your post is very thorough and interesting though.
    Thanks for sharing and keep safe!

      Thank you for your comment.

      Huawei is a first class brand and takes the third best smartphone brand in rankings currently. Price and quality they do very well and always keep Samsung and iPhone on their toes. They do so well that even America banned the brand itself to be sold in their country. You can still order online though.

      My only concern is that Huawei smartphone brand are not on the GMS platform anymore due to the ban and is on the HMS platform. Thus, some applications may not function properly compare to other smartphones that are on the GMS platform. Huawei is working on these problems. I would only consider this as a downer in quality if you have a application you want to use on a Huawei smartphone and gives weird errors instead. That is not welcoming.
