Around the middle of last year, Huawei had introduced the Ideos Pro smartphone. A neat looking phone with a set of decent features but a tad high on price. The company recently introduced the successor to the device in the form of the Ideos X5 Pro. The company has now added a few enhancements and the device has been re-launched at a slightly lower price. However, in the last six to eight months, a lot has been happening on the Android front, and manufacturers have been putting their best foot forward crafting devices in this price bracket. To know if the smartphone can stand strong with the current competition, read on.
Maintaing the same design
X5 at an angle
You will notice the speakers on the front and backside. There is an LED indicator near the speaker area which keeps you updated about the status of the phone, when it’s charging, missed call or unread messages or so on. On this front, there is nothing much to talk about as the phone hasn't undergone any improvement as such. Nevertheless, we still like it; it’s the same old yet tasteful design. The build quality is decent but the screen is prone to scratches and acts as a stubborn finger print magnet too.

Slick and smooth
In our tests, the X5 Pro scored 2511 on Antutu and in the Linpack test, it scored 39.91 MFLOPS in single thread run and 33.85 MFLOPS in the multi thread run. For this kind of price, those scores are quite good.
The X5 Pro manages to emit clear cut music tones. With SRS WOW HD settings the overal bass in the audio is enhanced and the surround tones become well balanced. The X5 also features a few more EQ presets and the player's UI is also visually quite attarctive. The external speakers are loud enough for a small room but we'd urge you to refrain from using them in public places. If you're looking for a slightly more personalised tone in your audio you could opt for a third party media player app but the native player is nevertheless pretty good on its own. It has 1.5GB of internal memory which can be expanded further via microSD card slot so rest asured you have enough space for your media. The X5 Pro also has a fairly decent FM radio.
