Huawei Sonic : World's First Cloud SmartPhone



What do you expect from a low price smart phone? Huawei Sonic is that low price smart phone which is much smarter than a smart phone could be. It is world’s first phone based on cloud services and Android 2.3v Gingerbread and is offering a 20GB storage (4GB bundled micro SD card and 16GB cloud net drive).

All thanks to Huawei, they allowed us to have a review device. I was not expecting much out of a low price phone, but when I started using it, I just feel in love with it and made it my primary phone. Let's dig deep to know whats so special about this phone.


Design

It has contemporary looks as a high class smart phone has, with an entirely plastic body a chrome stripe is adding little touch of elegance to it and the round corners are making the phone enough comfortable to hold.

Display

Even at such a reasonable price Huawei hasn’t compromised with its screen. It is 3.5-inch capacitive screen, large enough for one to type comfortably. The resolution is quite acceptable 320X480 display where one can enjoy videos, movies, games etc. Considering the price of the phone one cannot argue with the resolution it is providing us.

Performance

Sonic has a decent performance for users which do not prefer many apps running on the background. It has a 600 MHz ARM11 processor (the Qualcomm MSM7227), and 256Mb of RAM. The RAM might not look handsome but it is ample for normal phone users further the built-in memory management in Android very neatly keeps the RAM free for use. It smoothly supports the multi touch zoom, comes with a GPS receiver, 3.2 megapixel camera which also works as a VGA recorder, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The phone in all is true worth of money.Let us explore some of the Cloud Services it is providing us.

Features 

1. Cloud+

Huawei is presenting Cloud + services to its users. This service is integrated into Sonic’s platform. It is offering features like Message+, Phone Finder, Cloud+ Drive, Phone Finder, SNS contacts Integration and you can access them anywhere.

    1. It's great, you can play all android games on it, but it has a bit less RAM, so some high graphic intensive games might lag !
