This phone looks pretty and has a nifty feel,but it has a lot of problems. For one thing the web browser stinks! It always freezes up and either stops or just bring you back to the home page. I have to keep all my apps in the home page, because when you press the app button sometimes it will freeze up and give you the loading sign. Another problem is the keyboard a lot of times it just won't come up during texts or surfing the web. And the communication is also another issue. Sometimes it never receives texts or calls and sometimes when your making a phone call it will just hang up. Overall I wouldn't recommend this phone as it is difficult and very frustrating to use it's also not cheap, so if your looking for an inexpensive smart phone I would suggest chipping in a little more money and investing in a better phone. The only good thing about it though is that it's quite durable from drops and it has a reasonable battery life.

i refer to this phone as "baby's first smartphone" due to it's middling specs. A starter phone, if you will.

This might seem like a shity phone but turns out it can be pretty cool. Here are my steps to transform it:
1.backup phone
2.unlock bootloader
(after install CWM recovery)
3.restore backup and root
4.overclock processor to 1 ghz
5.get a swap file to work with it.
6.installer golauncher-ex

This is what i have done with myne and everything seems to be just fine. It runs really smooth now. I dont take responsibility if u break ur phone doing any of these steps

This phone suuuucks! I got it for Christmas brand new and within a day the phone starts to act up. I ended up exchanging it for the another one that was also new and it acted up right away. Apps are always crashing for no reason the phone is super slow the little keyboard doesn't even show up sometimes and there's times where i can't lock the phone so i have to take out the battery. I still have it sadly but if there's any way to fix all that please tell me.

This also known as the Huawei Ascend y210 in the caribbean and other parts of the world.It runs on Android 2.3.6 and it is 20g heavier than this.It's a good phone though.

I've had my Prism II for about 5 months. It worked great for about 1-2 months. Then ... I keep having trouble viewing pictures on Twitter. Have tried everything. Touching camera in Twitter told me my SD card was not loaded properly. It seems to be fine. Anyone have this same problem.
