Does anyone know how much this will cost in Australia, I've been to the Official australian huawei website and it says it will cost around $250 but when it goes through all the distributors and retailers it should cost around $350-$400 and is NOT what Huawei have said the price would be.
Anonymous, 12 Jan 2011Just my 2 cents..
Anyone planning to purchase this should go for LG OPTIMUS ONE P500, as ther... moreI wouldnt be to concerned about this. I've used a demo X5 and the phone is FAST. Also the hardware of the X5 is superior to the Optimus and it costs less.
Most people don't care about running custom roms.

I've had quite an extensive play around with this phone, and to be honest, it is probably the best phone on the market for its price.
I own a Galaxy i9000 and this phone feels almost as quick as the galaxy. The screen however is slightly smaller and the colours arent as vibrant, but this is to be expected seeing its almost half the price. The screen is capacitive though so its easy to use!
I am from New Zealand. This phone just arieved today on 2degrees plateform. I am thinking to buy this phone tomorrow. Please advise me if you have been using this phone. Thanks
I brought one of these from 2 degrees New Zealand, unfortunately they did not have a demo unit and it appears there are two keys differences with the 2 degrees supplied model:
1) The internal SD is 2Gb NOT 4Gb
2) There is NO FM radio ....
Sorry, but that kills it for me .... @$550NZ to not have radio is crap.
Has all the key 6 features I have dreamt for in a social and business phone and would not compromise
1. Camera, 5mp, autofocus, led flash
2. 3.5 MM audio jack port
3. Document viewer
4. 32 GB Memory slot & USB microUSB v2.0.
5. GPRS, 3G HSDPA 14.4 Mbps & Bluetooth
6. Sleek design
I cant wait for it!! Any one knows it's expected price in Kenya
I am waiting for it in India. It seems good and worth on its expected cost.
