Have had this phone for about 2 months. Well it was only for a bout $199 NZD so it was really cheap for its specs. Camera takes good photos outside during daylight but struggles under low light but still gets the job done and front camera is decent for selfies. Buttons are responsive and the dedicated 2 stage camera shutter is really nice. Its lightweight but personally i think its too light so i bought a case for it so thats fine, pretty much just plastic all round but i can live with that. Can play most 2d games and majority of high 3d games but some games like asphalt 8 is playable but framerate is really bad. Call quality is great, wifi signal is great, emotion ui is meh but i use nova launcher so thats all good.Battery life is above average as i can get about 4 hours of screen time on before i need to charge (around 10%) and under normal usage, you should be able to last a whole day but warning - it will turn off when ur at 2% so charge before that. The thing im disappointed is the the ram. Marketing says its got 1gb of ram but its only actually got around 798mb and only about 400-300mb is available so multitasking is a pain. Also software support for this phone is pratically nothing, huawei pretty much forgot about this phone and don't expect any update ever which sucks because it would've been nice to see at least kitkat running on this phone. For benchmark i get around 16.5k on antutu and around 5000 on quadrant. If anyone looking to buy this phone i recommend you do but just download a different launcher if emotion ui doesn't suit ur liking because overall for its price, its got really good specs.

I was just wondering would this phone be a good buy if you are looking for good memory for games and music?

I've owned this model for quite a while now and can say that the camera is superb, I bought it mainly for that reason and I like that it has a physical shutter button as well as the screen button. the phone functions exactly as it should, It's odd that the main reason for having a phone is often the one thing that is not commented on! On the minus side, the battery life is not brilliant, but it seems that most smart phones are daily chargers also, so it's just a matter of forgetting the old dumb phones with the 30 day batteries and accepting daily charging! the second niggle is the fact that the screen defaults to half brightness arbitrarily and this has to be reset manually every time. I realise that this is Huawei's attempt to maximise battery life but it is so annoying.
Overall, it's a good phone that's bordering on VERY good.

Hi, so I have had this phone for 7 months now and I've noticed a lot of bad points and good points (more bad than good)

Pros
•Its relatively cheap
•has a big display
•camera is very good
•flash is very bright
•colours on the phone are very vibrant
•is fast at some points

Cons
•slow most of the time
•cant use an SD card
•flash light doesn't work sometimes
•crashes a lot
•WiFi messes up on it all the time (requires reboot)
•camera quality is terrible as you zoom
•constant brightness change - in other words the brightness changes every 5 mins on some days and is a pain in the butt!

I rate the phone 3 star out of 5


If anyone knows how to sort some of the cons out it would be greatly appreciated.
