The Huawei GR3 is a 4G LTE, 5-inch Android Lollipop smartphone. The first time I set my eyes on it, it struck me as a phone that would capture my interest and probably keep it. Well, it wasn’t long after that a unit paid us a visit at Mobility Arena. And so, here is our Huawei GR3 Unboxing.
The packaging is simple: a compact red box:
We pulled out the phone and emptied the box to find: screen protector, a SIM pin attached to the documents box (containing leaflets), wall charger plug, USB cable and a 3.5mm audio earpiece. That sounds like a complete package.
With the Huawei GR3 Unboxing done, we picked up the phone itself for a look. There isn’t anything special about the front of the Huawei GR3. It is an average look. There’s a 5 megapixel front-facing camera at the top, along with a proximity sensor.
Huawei’s Emotion UI is really nice and breezy. It does away with the standard Android app drawer. It displays notifications that you can interact to achieve tasks faster. For example, you can reply an incoming message by clicking “Reply” on the message notification in the drop-down menu. Nifty.
As always, I checked network mode. The GR3 lets you peg to a 3G network, but not to a 4G network. As such, though it is a 4G LTE smartphone supporting the appropriate band, my Smile SIM wouldn’t work in it.
While the front of the Huawei GR3 is nothing special, the back shell is pure class – all-metal casing. It looks good and feels great. I wish Huawei had used this same material for the front, but I am guessing that we would then be looking at a higher priced device.
If you have enjoyed this Huawei GR3 Unboxing and your interest is piqued, you should have a look at the the Huawei GR3 specs. Elroy will bring you the detailed review of this nice fella.
