I just wanted a modest smartphone with Android and basic features such as Twitter app, as well as video download and music storage. This model allows you to upgrade to the latest version of Android, but make you sure you use it with a 16GB or a 32GB class 10 memory card. I honestly use it as an iPod touch with iPhone qualities ^^ since I can't afford those.
It is surprinsingly versatile, compact, small, practical. The only downside is the camera that doesn't have a flash and it's of standard quality, but since I don't live taking pictures of everything every day, I don't really care ^^
This phone is discrete, it wouldn't seem fancy at first, but it demonstrates great functionalities. I would say that it's great if you are a work oriented person, and you're out of the brouhaha of the eternal iphone vs blackberry, samsung vs iphone, samsung vs google vs nokia vs everyone else, etc.
Huawei is a solid brand that may become the next Samsung.
Hello, I was hesitant to buy this phone due to reading reviews which said it did not get 3g, SIM card did not work, etc. I got this phone for about $60 in used condition from ReliableCellular (I thought the back cover would be blue..it is black. However, they did include a USB cord and charger which the ad said would not be included!) Shipping took a few days longer than desired (but not longer than approximated) but the device arrived in great condition...not 1 scratch on the screen (which can affect Swype typing/screen selections), only several small scratches on the back. I am SO satisfied with this phone...I will certainly be keeping it! However, I am sending back a phone which I got for slightly cheaper: Samsung Galaxy 5 Europa (i5500). Aside from it only getting EDGE (which I knew before buying it) the screen response was very inaccurate (Swype as well as recognizing taps), it was SLOW to react (5+ seconds for basic homescreen selections...much much slower loading...
This was my first Android and I really liked most of the features, but phone kept shutting off. I am using Straight Talk plan with ATT compatible sim card so I'm not sure if that was the problem since it's a T-Mobile phone. I didn't have the problem for the first few days. After downloading a few apps, the phone started randomly shutting off. Took a chance with this brand and am a bit let down. Also, had major problems connecting my Bluetooth - kept having to pair with ear piece. Just sent back to seller, but am buying a Samsung from them since they are great! (Cell-Source)
