Had this phone around a year ago, initially good value but has a lot of issues. Weak processor means that there is terrible lag when using any task orr app, the camera is poor, very cheap build quality, and terrible battery life. No exaggeration to say that you will be lucky to get 6 hours use between charges. Also heats up worryingly when making calls or browsing. I have now upgrade to the Alcatel 983 (see my comment) which is an absolutely fantastic handset. I can't recommend the huawei!

Really brilliant phone for the price: I'm a heavy user, but not a tech expert so it does eveything I want on a budget. My only criticisms are that the processor is occasionally slow and app memory is a bit limited. Overall, though, I love it!

Exactly the same thing happened to me so I feel your pain :) I had the phone for about a year and totally loved it, especially for the price.

I've had mine about a year and it's a bit slow and can't upgrade to any newer version of Android, just stuck with 2.3.5 the camera isn't great and it isn't compatible with many Android apps

Used it for about 10 months. Just sent it for in warranty repair as touch screen top edge lost its sensitivity.
Pros: Great looks and form factor, compact, slim and stylish. Good sharp display. Good battery (if you monitor & kill the power sucking apps). Low price.
Cons: Weak reception (compared to nokias). Occasional echo. Low external speaker volume. Low mic sensitivity (not good for speaker phone calls). Low quality GPS (in terms of locking on and errors). Low quality camera. Processor and RAM low end for GB 2.3. Hence slow response and occassional app crashes. Low exchange value being a 'chinese phone'.

Summary - Its a toy rather than a serious instrument. But worth the price.
