have to agree the battery life is ot that great but neither is the sound quality...U need to have execellent hearing to hear this phone otherwise you would hardly know it was ringing or if you got a text message. Camera quality is grainey. The only reason i got this phone was because my original phone was stolen and it was cheap at the time.
I think is a very nice phone but battery life is too short n camera pool. I will recommend this phone 4 anyone who would like to use smart phone @ low cost
Definetely get the Xperia Tipo, it has a stronger processor, a processor that allows you to do video calls on skype (you need 800MHz or more for that) and it has ICS wich is great, it also costs just a little more than the Ideos X3(Ideos X3 84€ on german amazon | Xperia Tipo 109€ on german amazon), it has 2x more RAM and 2.5GB internal storage, Ideos X3 is bad with that... both have a MicroSD slot for up to 32GB, tipo has scratch resistand glass, Ideos X3 doesn't, anyway you're going to buy a screen protector.. sand scratches even the mighty Corning Gorilla Glass 2, none of the phones has a LED Flash but the Ideos X3 has a Front Facing Camera which I don't use (I own the Ideos X3) because it's supposed to be used for skype but the slow processor doesn't support video calls :'( both have the same GPU..
GO AND BUY SONY XPERIA TIPO
- that's my advice ;)
have fun with your new phone :)
Hello, I'm interested to buy this phone, I think it's a good value for money phone...what do you think? should I consider buying Sony Xperia Tipo instead?

My FB,Email accounts are not opening in the mobile. but all other sites from google search is opening.Any one can suggest me how I can able to open FB and Email account from Mobile.
I have been using different Android phones but since this little beauty has come into my hands, I've thrown away others... Superb android, smart and slim, good performance, affordable price
i have had this phone for 6mths and i love it only thing i dont like is the battery life is bit short
Had this phone around a year ago, initially good value but has a lot of issues. Weak processor means that there is terrible lag when using any task orr app, the camera is poor, very cheap build quality, and terrible battery life. No exaggeration to say that you will be lucky to get 6 hours use between charges. Also heats up worryingly when making calls or browsing. I have now upgrade to the Alcatel 983 (see my comment) which is an absolutely fantastic handset. I can't recommend the huawei!
Really brilliant phone for the price: I'm a heavy user, but not a tech expert so it does eveything I want on a budget. My only criticisms are that the processor is occasionally slow and app memory is a bit limited. Overall, though, I love it!
Matt, 30 Dec 2012Dear GSM Arena I had use Huawei U8510 IDEOS X3 for long time, but just now it was dropped the... moreMost phone repair shops will fix the phone but since it's not a very common make, getting parts shipped in from Asia is the time-consuming and expensive bit. Exactly the same thing happened to me so I feel your pain :) I had the phone for about a year and totally loved it, especially for the price.
I've had mine about a year and it's a bit slow and can't upgrade to any newer version of Android, just stuck with 2.3.5 the camera isn't great and it isn't compatible with many Android apps
