> In reply to Julie @ 2013-04-21 09:30 from kZ0p - click to readPlease be advised i have had the ascend II phone since october 2011. The biggest complaint is the battery does not hold charge. 3 hours puts it at 40%. Buy a car charger and put in your glove compartment. Take along your electrical one too. This phone does work efficiently if you treat it right. It is not designed for heavy usage. It only cost $70.

Ive had this phone for idk maybe a year now and to be honest the phone is horrible, I never had any problems with the first acsend but this is just complete crap. I can never take my phone off the charger because one minute the battery is full the next its drained, another problem I had is that the phone is dramatically slow and turns off in the middle of things.Also for some odd reason all of my photos were deleted, every last bit of them and I tried to replace the photos until it said 'there is no more space try deleting some things then try again' this phone should not be recommended to anyone unless I'm just using the phone incorrectly which I doubt. If you're wanting to get a new phone don't get this one, I suggest the first acsend if that's your only options. I'm going to be getting the Samsung galaxy s4 in a few weeks,hopefully its not a big disappointment like this one. Oh and btw not trying to attract any negative comments Im just stating my opinion about the phone

I wouldn't call a phone not powering on or battery life depleting as it's plugged to a charger simply "something wrong". "Something wrong" is an understatement. I can take a grainy picture or low storage even. You're right, it's not a computer, it's a phone. Therefore, I expect it to operate as such. It can't do that if it won't even power on, or just shuts itself down in the middle of a call. I can't speak for everyone else, but I wouldn't be "sitting behind a computer complaining" if I had no reason to. Do you work for the company who manurfactured this failing product? You sound like you do.

Well actually to everyone out there that says this phone is worth nothing,i'd like to state that EVERY single cell phone out there HAS SOME KIND OF PROBLEM. It dose not matter how new a phone is... because its ALWAYS going to have SOME kind of problem! And another thing is that i think the phone is GREAT i've had NO problems with it and i've had it for almost a YEAR! Yes, its is a little bit slow but its a PHONE not a freaking COMPUTER! And yes, the camera is not that good but that's what a REAL camera is for! This phone is also GREAT for a first phone! You guys on your computers are just sitting and complaining about the phone! Since you obivoisly know what your talking about... WHY DON'T YOU COME UP WITH A BETTER ONE?

> In reply to Iguess...again @ 2013-01-14 19:40 from GBT7 - click to readI'm back to recant my previous statement about this not being a terrible phone. It actually is a terrible. Absolutely horrible. I now have a new problem altogether. My phone will no hold a charge. No matter what. As a matter of fact it can be plugged into a charger and the battery life still drains. It is totally ridiculous. Just like the audio port died out of the blue, my phone will not charge out of the blue. I am so sick of this crap. I will never purchased another one. I was trying to be economical, but alas...I will be saving to purchase a phone that is actually worth the money it costs. This phone is nothing but a headache. I wouldn't dream of replacing it with another of it's kind. I haven't had it an entire year and every other week it's something else. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS CRAP TO ANYONE. Any other phone has to be better than this phone. smh.

Huawei ascend is piece of crap!! When I turn phone on I get android keyboard failed. force close? only way to clear it is to pull battery. have had 2 for a year. 1st one lasted a week, and returned it to place of purchase. 2nd 1 was returned to man and replaced with a refurbished phone. had it 2 months and it is doing the same thing. this phone is not worth its weight in dog crap!!!!!!!

Waste of $70! I would not recommend this phone to anyone. No wonder it was on sale...

For starters, there is virtually no storage space. If you get an app, and then delete the app, it will still have "low storage space". I had four apps, and yet I see in notifications that I have "low storage space".

Second, the battery life sucks. It can barely last about three hours, correct me if I'm wrong.

Finally, it takes forever to download apps. It also constantly crashes when using apps, and tends to freeze when it's on the Internet. So, your only option is to turn it off and then back on, which gets annoying.

I still have the phone, which I'm planning to give away to some unlucky person, and now I have an iPhone 4, which I love. I always now have a plan wig Sprint instead of Cricket. If you have the Huawei Ascend II, I would suggest selling it, or giving it away and getting a new phone. You can get a different smartphone for a low price, with a contract, but eh, I got my iPhone 4 for free with a two year contract, and I'm happy.

This phone is the worst phone I have ever owned. I have had basic phones that worked better than this one. At first it was great but it seems like when you uninstall a program it still keeps some of the storage space unusable and so eventually you cannot download any new apps. I have deleted all of my text messages, pictures, videos, and un synced my email, and uninstalled all but Words with Friends and it still says it is low on memory. And when it is low on memory the phone cannot receive emails or any kind of notification other than a text message. Do not buy this phone ever. The speed is terrible as well. Takes forever to go from app to app.

This is a terrible phone. I am so sorry I wasted my money. The First Ascend was pretty good so I figured the II would be excellent. I was wrong. I only have 4 basic apps downloaded, (notepad, calendar, antivirus, facebook)but I continually have the "low phone storage" warning coming up. This is supposed to be a Muve Music phone, but the program wont even register due to "insufficient storage" on the phone. I barely have anything on my phone!!!! And when the phone has the low storage, it wont run properly. It wont keep signal, you cant dial. TERRIBLE phone.

Having sold my iPhone 4 I decided to have a go with an Android phone but didn't want to spend a lot of money so I bought the Huawei G300. The phone was ok at the beginning but now apps keep crashing, sometimes all of them, even contacts, messaging and the dialing pad so I'm having to hard reset at least once a week and reinstall all apps again as simply restarting or turning off then on again won't solve the crashing problems. I thought it was a problem with my handset in particular but reading the comments here makes me even more frustrated as realised that the phone itself is a lot of crap and not that I was unlucky with a bad handset.

> In reply to msshocke @ 2013-01-15 18:57 from Ydw5 - click to readI have the same problem too. I think it may have to do with the class speed of your MircoSD card. Mine was a Class 4, I'm upgrading to a class 10, we'll see if that fixes the problem.
