This phone is a poor man's HTC desire I guess. But apart from the criticism, it represents excellent value for money. Unlike ZTE, it has a better build quality, the media player is capable of playing decent video clips, also trhe supplied earphones are good and pump out decent music, bass included! The build quality is first rate, wish my Galaxy S had the same price to build quality ratio!
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2010I've purchased this phone this morning from Argos in the uk. The handset ( from argos at least... moreThe speed depends on where u use it and time of day. I usually only use it at night. as not many ppl use the net at night its why its so fast for me. my sony ericsson k530i on 3 is very very slow. But my 8yr old ZTE on 3 is also fast. Also the k530i battery dies after half an hr. i havent charged this phone for 3 days and i use it online a lot maybe 5 to 6 hrs day. Ive read loads of reviews for other phones before i got this 1 as it had better reviews than the others. All the new sony phones have really bad reviews as do the nokias. But then nokia has always made bad phones. Ive had nokias so has most of my family and friends. the speaker goes after a month or 2. my niece and nephew didnt have theirs for a day before their nokias packed up. even the replacements didnt last more than a week. But as most networks put their own software on the phones they sell it makes a big diff on how they work. I had an LG viewty unlocked from new. on 3 it worked fine but only half the things worked on o2 and vodaphone. some networks block some features on a phone. A keypad comes up when using opera mini 5.2 but not on older versions of mini. But the keys r way to close to use even with a stylus. Opera mini doesnt work very well on this phone at the mo cause its the generic version of mini. Most of the time all the links on a web page r highlighted at the same time making it impossible to click the link u want. But as opera say mini is desighned to work best on RJ45 phones which is what this phone is not a smart phone mini should work but dont. Plus the built in browser is 100% faster than opera. Ive paid a lot more for a phone with less features and a lot slower. Its unusual for 3 not to have 2 cams though. 3 was setup for vid calls but cant use this phone for that due to a lack of cam on the front. U can make a vid call however if u use a mirror lol. thats what i do. just tried it by ringing my old phone. If u point the cam at the mirror the person ur ringing will see u that way lol.
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2010I am considering getting this phone from three and have read several very good and very bad re... moreu should buy different phone b'cause i have this phone and it' is very slow.
I've purchased this phone this morning from Argos in the uk. The handset ( from argos at least ) doesn't have a secondary camera. Also the phone runs pretty slow, but for £29.99 I can't really complain. I won't be using the phone for long as will be used for emergencies etc..... but after playing with the device for an hour I'd wished I'd purchased a basic nokia or se as whilst on paper this phone has ok specs for the price, in reality most of the features you wouldnt use as it is too painfully slow.
I think for the 40 pounds i got it form tesco , it is a quiet fair price for the phone , i use to have HTC touch before , when it came out and paid for 600usd , what so ever i think for the 40 pounds this cost , it is a good buy , does the work ... and , well you do not need to worry if it brakes , it is only 40pounds :))) features are lot less , but has all i need , almost ... good phone ...
I am considering getting this phone from three and have read several very good and very bad reveiws. Can anyone tell me if it is worth considering or should I just get a different phone altogether.
Any advice will be much appreciated.
my daughter was playing with my phone (i know, i know) and when i took it off her, there was a symbol of a little headset at the top of the screen. now when i am recieving a call, i can answer but not hear anything, i have to press handsfree, same if i make a call. there is no headset attached. i have read through the book several times, and just played around with settings but cant find how to turn this off. any ideas?
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2010Hello every one I got this phone thinking it was great,well I find it slow and i have trouble... moreIts probably ur network thats slow. Ive had mine on 3 for a week. its very fast. its faster than my broadband. ive been looking at reviews for other phones before i got this 1. nearly all the other phones have really bad reviews. The only prob i have is holding it cause of the shape. But after trying the vivaz this phone is good compared to that.
Hello every one I got this phone thinking it was great,well I find it slow and i have trouble to charge it. not happy with it out of 1-10 10 is great 1 is poor, I give it a 1.
Ive found the qwerty keypad. its only used in opera mini. its totally usless though. its very hard to use cause the keys r to small even with a stylus. Also mine is just as bad on this phone as other phones. its painfully slow and highlights all links on a page at the same the same time making it impossible to use the links. the OS for those that want to know is brew. its what they use on samsung phones. Huawei is a well known brand but have only just started putting their name on the phones. they usually make modems and routers but also make phones for nokia sony samsung and other big brands but use their brand names not their own. nearly every pc modem and router is made by Huawei but r branded with a diff name. Depending on the phone network that the phone is on depends on if u have a radio or not. the 3 version doesnt have radio but the T.mobile tap version in the USA does. There r a lot of games for it but as i found out when i tried to play 1 they dont always work. I treid to play 1 last night. it downloaded ok but it only came up as txt file not the game itself. on some apps u have to use touch and the scroll buttons with the ok button to use them. its a J2ME phone not smartphone as some have mentioned on here. opera mini hasnt got a compatible version for it so u have to use the generic vesrion which doesnt work that well. this phone is also known as the samsung genio as Huawei made it for samsung but then put their own name on it but made a few minor changes. the browser is very fast when it works. i timed it and checked the speed comparison with my pc. its a lot faster than BT home hub. but its let down by 3s unreliable server. I was going to get the sony ericsson vivaz but after all the very bad reviews i got this phone instead. so far its the best phone ive had for a long time. sony used to make the best phones but latley all their phones r getting bad reviews. I wont touch nokia cause they have always been really crap. I opened my pc and several old phones and found a lot of Huawei chips in them so i know their a big company. Its about time they started branding their own stuff instead of making stuff for others. The BT home hub is Huawei as is most of the mobile broadband dongles.
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2010how do i turn up my volume on my ringtone has at the moment its really quiet for Huawei U7510?to turn up the volume go into settings. then phone settings sound. then just tap the the bit round the centre button to increase or decrease the volume. right for louder left for quieter. its also the navigation keys for scolling up and down on websites. U can also adjust the volume using the buttons on the right side of the phone near the battery meter. Ive only had the phone 12hrs and already worked that out by reading the manual.
Anonymous, 15 Jul 2010can some please help me i just got the phone and when i try to dial a number and phone it it c... morer u trying to use skype? u need a sub for that. Or it could be the sim hasnt been activated. best thing to do is go to the shop u got it from and ask them to look at it. well thats if its a shop that sells phones lol. if its like argos they wont be able to help.
just got the phone today. so far its a great phone. i use a cottonbud to input txt cause its easier and doesnt scratch the sreen like a stylus would. had that prob with my last touchscreen. the specs om most sites say it has a radio but there isnt one that i can find. there r 117 games on the 3store for it so thats not to bad. the volume can be adjusted easy. its louder than my sony ericsson k530i. its very fast online. the manual doesnt really tell u how to use the phone very well. I looked through to find out how to use the radio but it doesnt say anything about having a radio. i was running a power hungry app for 8hrs before the battery gave out. the k530i only lasted 30 mins with the same app. the phone looks really good. black with chrome trim. but the shape makes it hard to hold so expect to drop it a lot. its not a smart phone like some ppl have said on here. its just a normal phone with touchscreen. the os will be what the phone network has installed. so it will work diff on diff networks. the full price on 3 pay as u go is £125. but if u get £10 topup when u buy it its only £49.99. Ive had more expensive phones that did less. it lacks a flash for the camera so its hard to use indoors. the charger/usb lead is way to short, so have to leave it on the floor next to the socket or plug it into a pc usb socket and charge it that way.
How do you download photos from mobile to computer. I can't get it to work. Also how do you download music to handset. No instructions in handbook. HELP
can some please help me i just got the phone and when i try to dial a number and phone it it cuts out and says "subscription needed" please help because i dont know how to fix it.
I have a micro SD card in my phone, but when I connect it with the USB nothing happens. How can I get it to be recognised as a mass storage device?
ChrisM, 09 Jun 2010The phone's OK for the price, but someone please tell me how to input a number when on a call ... morewhen your in a phone call with someone, press the keypad icon that comes up (there's also loud speaker, addressbook and hang up i think or other options - i can't really remember).
