Some say that the battery life is terrible on the ideos. I found that if I switch off the 'Data enabled' function, then it puts the phone back into a standard mobile mode without using extra system resources. Go into "settings', 'wireless &networks', 'mobile networks' and then uncheck the 'data enabled' option if you're not using the internet
This is a great little phone. Yes the camera is poor but I don't use a mobile to take good photos. The specs on this phone are very similar to the 'HTC wildfire' but about $200 cheaper atm, however the battery life and camera are better on the wildfire.
Though cheap, the design feels good and easy to use. The screen is not large, but its surprisingly usable. Its a smartphone at pre-paid plan prices... very teen friendly.
GPS connection for turn by turn navigation, games, facebook, twitter, messaging, camera (not great, but it works) all those apps, music, video, web browsing - its really quite amazing.
My elder brother bought one when overseas purely to use as a hot spot. The battery life is good - usable up to 2 days on light use, but best to charge overnight. Compared to any other phone at this price, it does so much
Someone else here has said that this phone does not have 3G, that is not correct. It has 3G, in fact it easily becomes a portable wi-fi hot spot that up to 8 computers can connect to, a trick that the iphone cannot do.
Its a nice phone.at first you might have issues with its Bluetooth but it will be okay after some time.I downloaded Bluetooth file transfer from Google play.it was nice but I don't use it anymore coz the Bluetooth just started working fine by itself.if you have issues with fast battery drain, download Easy Battery Saver and select super save mode.you will definitely love the outcome. to prevent hanging and increase running speed, download any optimizer from Google play. the best tip is to transfer all your apps to the sd card..go to settings..applications...downloaded apps...tap app...select "move to SD card".more free internal memory makes your phone to run faster.Alternatively, if you want your phone to run much faster, download Ginger Break and root your phone. afterwards download Set CPU.you will be able to make your phone processing speed to increase(from 528MHz to a maximum of 600MHz).I know all this coz I've used this phone for a while.you can kik me on Rafael.exGenius or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .I will help you where am able to.The major let down of this phone is the 528MHz processor. it is quite slow for someone who expects fast running speed.but for its price...this phone is just too cool.
this is an amazing phone infact all the village knows that I have mini computer coz I can help some individuals who own email accounts to check their mails also I love it coz it as a bible dictionary torch radio dstv maps antivirus pool games solar charger wifi mobile tracker and many many important apps in the market yani it is just and amazing phone like it the most.
wonderful phone with wonderful styles.
only booting problem and fast discharge battery.
otherwise wonderful idea and ideal of the creation of the phone.
easy to use and made for unisex.
I bought this phone about 18 months ago. Does everything you could ever want from a phone and more. Yes it has a rediculously small pixel count a small screen by modern standards but look at the price. If you are on a budget buy it, put in a 16gb memory card download some apps from the app store and off you go, with little damage to the old wallet.
I particularly like the radio & Media player which when combined with the loud & clear speaker is great. We used it in a diesel van at 70mph and could hear the music fine. Camera is'nt up to much. But plug in Moon+ reader and the damm thing will even read books out loud to you. My next phone will be the Galaxy note but I'll keep this a backup.
hello. I'm currently using Ideos u8150, the performance is good. to be able to track your phone, you need an antivirus with antilost feature. I'm using Avast Mobile Security because it is free in the market. earlier I used Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 but I have to state here that Avast is a better option.
After installing it, you will need to instal the antilost feature thereafter.
I wish this helps you.
I really like this product and it has everything.........it is affordable with andriod system plus google map.
it has wifi and wifi hotsports that enables you to connect one or more PCS.
you can download up Sixty thousand applications.
what is more...........it has office or document to go.....where you can write with out going to computer or read directly all documents in your emial-inbox......that is file document.
can u kindly let me know if this phone can video call and can it skpe ?
thks alot , im clueless with specifications
This phone is nice and i have downloaded many apps and and its pretty fast. worth the price. Very impressed with the design despite having the kind of plastic body you would expect at this price point, build quality is not compromised32 gb expandable memory helps to store more aaps n also the phone doesnt lag even if memory is low.
It is powered by a Qualcomm MSM7225 chipset that originally runs at 528MHz clock speed which is decently fast and performs better. There are so many free apps that i can download. MSN, Skype, Talking Cat..Google Map and Google search is all in your hand.i have this phone and it is very stylish and its very good for surfing and downloading.
It’s clear FroYo is slightly too much for the processor to handle – only slightly though, and the improvements 2.2 itself brings to the table makes Huawei’s decision a wise one. Apart from this, the phone is boosted by an Adreno 200 GPU..The camera quality is really good. didnt expect such good quality in such cheap price. 3.2 mp camera really works wonders.
The sound quality of the phone is really good. The in-ear quality is also very decent. The phone Speakers are pretty loud n sound does not get distortion. The app support for the phones are really good. whats app and viber work really fine. the internet support for the phone is also very good.
The Huawei IDEOS U8150 is a great value fully-featured capacitive touch Android 2.2 smart phone. CAPACITIVE touch screen 2.8''.
