This phone sucks I purchased it 3 weeks ago and the 1st one they gave me the microphone was not working on the 1st day they gave me another one and just today the camera just has a green screen I haven't drooped
For the cost of the phone it does the job. If expecting it to be a IPhone or a galaxy its not, but I have had no problems with it at all. I like it a lot.
bigtrucksdd , 30 Nov 2012From what I've seen. Im sure most of it is operator error. People don't understand that these ... moreI've had all the same problems. I'm not very tech. Smart. Would like advice. How do I clear history and cookies.
Everybody this phone is awesome when you know how to flash custom roms!!! I installed a rom called Lunar CyanogenMod 9 OTA and it funs smooth!!!
I actually really like this phone. I have juicedefender, and my battery is stock and lasts a couple days. I downloaded ram booster, which keeps it running fast even with golauncher installed. Doesn't run Netflix very well, but YouTube is pretty good. The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't have multi touch. I'm an avid Pokemon player (which sometimes freezes up while I'm playing, but it's a crappy emulator anyways), but really, my old phone had multi touch and I miss it. And the landscape keyboard ticks me off. There's nothing wrong with it, I like it, but I have some muffed up nerves in my right thumb from a run in with a can of black beans, and the buttons don't register sometimes cuz of that. Nice camera too. And if there was a way to delete voicemails without having to listen to them, that would be awesome. Also if there was a built in stylus. Those make me feel important.

anselmo, 06 Nov 2012same here, it continues in a boot loop, i hate and desperate for this phone, in 25 days i got ... moreThis is the worst phone I have ever had. It glitches all the time, with everything. I will stop playing music, freeze, turn off at on, stop charging all at random. This phone is the biggest waste of money ever!!! I've only had it for 3 months and paid $200 plus the $65 bill!!! Unacceptable.
I've had it 8 months and I finally have the money to buy something good. This phone is terrible.
+ got it in a half off deal.
+ far and few, but i like the expansion to 32 gig capability.
+ Voice is pretty clear.
- Battery life is extremely short, buy a battery on ebay that is 3 times the life for 10 bucks.
- I'd often have to factory reset, as gps, 3g and wifi wouldn't work.
- With little things like texting, the phone stalls and closes with errors.
- It shuts off and turns back on when it wants
- apps would often not work
- DO NOT DROP IT, I dropped it twice and the head phone jack would not work.
Joshhart89, 18 Oct 2012If you want to do the following, do not purchase this phone: (1) Use apps. The phone's pro... moreI agree w/ josh. Ive had the phone for 2months w/in the first 2weeks took phone back for factory warranty! Due to the phone shutting off on its own, resetting itself, not receveing my text msgs or calls. Reset my settings such as wallpapers, ringtones & so on. Got another one same thing. Then 2 weeks ago the phone froze allowing me to do nothing, got another one & last night the phone froze again!! CRICKET CONTINUES TO TELL ME THAT THEY HAVE HAD NO NEGATIVE REVIEWS OR COMMENTS FOR THIS MODEL PHONE!! HOGWASH... DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS
Have had the phone for three months with Cricket service with no problems !
If you want to do the following, do not purchase this phone:
(1) Use apps. The phone's processor can't handle 99% of the apps on Google Play.
(2) Text message. The default android messaging application crashes repeatedly.
(3) Actually use the phone. The Huawei Ascend 2 shuts off by itself for not apparent reason.
If you don't want to do any of those things though...go ahead...make the purchase.
Yeah, Like a lot of people have said, a Smartphone isn't really a smart PHONE, it's a pocket PC with a telephone app. You can't handle them like an old style Flip Phone, or even a Slider Feature Phone. They're high maintenance and take a lot of TLC. If you treat'em like a lady, though, they'll almost always phone home.
I have had a lot of problems with this phone and its performance has been poor. The most significant problem has been the port for the charger, which sunk in and apparently malfunctioned. I researched this online and this appears to be a common problem based on its design, so I would be very cautious about buying it based on that alone.
Apart from this, the battery life is very, very short. Sometimes the phone also freezes when I use apps. I also think the camera is subpar.
I apologize if this review comes across as negative, but for a basic smartphone, it's a decent value. Again, the malfunctioning of the port for charging the phone and short battery life should be taken into account.
