bob, 26 Dec 2014Does it have notification light calls/texts at front?Yes it does, a small one on the top left corner between secondary camera and speaker
The only thing I dont like is that whem you download app from play store you cant move them to sd card
I don't really feel the vibratating when receiving a call, but it's so loud. Anyone experienced the same?
This phone is BOSS and this brand just goes from strength to strength well done HUAWEI!!

I bought this phone today and I'm very impressed, just wish they didn't have to have so many pre installed apps as not much memory left after I installed my own apps. The only thing I'm unhappy with is the sound quality when I'm playing my music, even with decent headphones it sounds very tinny and low. Even installing a good music player hasn't helped.
The phone is just average. The people who concerned about low resolution simply make full the brightness then it will be alright. It has got nice light flash for taking picture in dark. But personally I don't think its support 4G due to never seeing its support while samsung s5 or iphone 5 users getting that in same area same time. 4g maybe its marketing tactic to sale handset but on the otherhand the phone itself is very fast.
what you think about camera at night with flash and is the ring tone loud as i had the huawei g300 and had problems with the ringtones
sharon, 20 Nov 2014how do I get photos on to my computer 1st time helpThere are 2 ways to transfer photos from phone to PC.
1. Traditional way by physical connection between PC and mobile phone with supplied USB cable.
2. Install a "wifi transfer" app from Google Play store. Activate the app and take notice the IP address on the screen (192.168.xxx.xxx:xxxx). Open web browser and insert the above IP address (http://192.168.xxx.xxx:xxxx). You should be able to gain access to all your photos on your mobile phone.
the code *#*#6130#*#* opens a manufacturer setting that allows to PING a host and this is a section that shows an option to set huawei y550 to LTE 4g only but but huawei have locked the option so the phone can not be set to 4G only. - if anyone knows the #*#__#*#* type code to set huawei y550 to LTE 4g only - please post it - i have emailed huawei TWICE to 2 different huawei departments and huawei did not reply. - i have spend weeks trying every code i can find on my huawei y550 and not found the code if anyone knows it PLEASE POST IT THANKS - the normal android code of *#*#4636#*#* that always lets android phone be set to 3g only or 4g only the *#*#4636#*#* does not work on huawei y550
useful codes for huawei y550
*#*#2846579#*#* this gives lots of settings for manufacturer tests on the phone but does not give setting to 4g only. it usefull in that it lest the usb setting be changed from GOOGLE MODE to MANUFACTURER MOSE or to NORMAL MODE - so when the phone is connected by usb to a pc the user can have turn off GOOGLE MODE which sends loads of info to google about your pc and phone and instead turn the phone to NORMAL MODE which does not send info off without your knowing it. also you can set other usb modes that are useful if you want to ADB into your phone and use ROOT and other stuff to modify the phones settings and ...too much to explain try the code and have a look
me am new guy thinking of shifting to smart 4n am kinda doin research to which kind is good and less price that i can take....any HELP PLZZZZZ!!!!!
How to turn on camera light while taking picture in night time in huwaei y550???
I've been using y550 for 2 weeks. So far I can confirm what other say.Great phone for the price.Two things I'm bit concerned anyway: 1.display quality; it has 218ppi only so you cant expect sharp and bright screen. 2.pictures quality is quiet poor, even in good light condictions pics are little bit noisy. Appart from this - superb.
Huawei never gives no OS Updates. Never. have used u8150, Y210d, g510, and many more.
Huwaei y550 is very nice phone but just wondering as how led flash light can get on when taking picture in dark?????
As a Y550 owner I can confirm that this device is terrific value running KitKat, having 4G, a 64 bit chip and even being able to record 720p HD videos in stereo for less than £100/€120. If owners do not like Huawei's proprietary user interface (due to its lack of an app drawer) installing the Google Now launcher will provide a clean Android stock style interface.
