john, 27 Jan 2011pathetic battery.It cant even last for 7 hours a day.Chinese product againYeah.. it's a phone u use it not often..use it while doing something else.if u turn it into a radio or ipod..i.e. listening to music for a long time the battery runs out in a short time. Browsing with it for an hour makes runs out the battery.

Abu(kenya), 26 Jan 2011Hey GLo.i believe the phone is good.i pray i get one with a black cover or if worse comes to w... moreHey Glo.. i bought the phone yesterday. It's awesome. Take your time to study the manual though. It has a lot of features... Be patient in getting to you know phone. Charge the battery for 6 hours before putting on the phone..that is after buying then u may now put the sim card then switch it ON. You'll love it.
@Kabir - get a life and quit hating, u probalby dont even know where Kenya is on the world map. I'm a student and I own a sony Ericsson X10 Mini and that's not even my only smartphone. I think the Huawei U8150 is a bargain considering its features.

pathetic battery.It cant even last for 7 hours a day.Chinese product again
Just wanted to know the security features of the phone.does it allow calls and messages screening?i would be grateful if someone with hands on experience on this model can answer me.thanks in advance
@kabir Go sit on a broomstick. Rotate. Counterclockwise. No Vaseline.
@zxcv ;-) If he (she, it?) can bend over that far... lol!
Kabir, 26 Jan 2011A lot of excitement especially from Kenyans maybe this could be their first Android experience... more@Kabir, u ever been to Kenya?
Loads of smartphones r available here, and about the ringtone stuff, that was just one person from a pop of 40 Million, and as you had been told b4 Go blow urself!
On the first thing if you compare this phone and other smartphones that cost over double it, certainly you wont like it, compare it with the phones that are of the same price range.
To me its a nice phone, I would consider taking it on a ride
Guys plz inform me about the shortcomings of the camera and battery life of this 'hot cake' and how to avoid them
Hi Guys, Note that in addition to Huawei U8150 IDEOS-(TFT 2.8, processor 528 MHz) we also have Huawei U8800 IDEOS X5-(TFT 3.8, Storage 2/4 gb, 800 MHz), Huawei U9000 IDEOS X6-(TFT 4.1, Storage 2 gb, 1 g HZ Processor) & Huawei IDEOS S7.0 (a Tablet) TFT 7.0. The last three will be available before May 2011.
despite all the arguments about the phone,I personally think a hands on experience should be enough to know whether it is good or not, that is why for me am waiting for a friend to buy and check it out before I decide like I did with the C3 ,plainly shooting it down is not so nice

The ideos is not underpriced if you consider the additional revenue streams that the marketplace (apps) provides. What i find interesting is that the phone is an initiative of safcom.
