This phone is good for Facebook , whatsapp it will do good job at some little games 2 or 3 at max, it also needs some patience due to little ram I use it since 5 months battery timing is 5 hours continuous screen on time and it will down to 4 after few months (in my case 4 months) good for using under sun light can continue with u for full day if u know how to organize it i.e. turn off continuous data and use it when u need it and install cash cleaner light version of it also. It will do job as it must be but follow these instructions u will be happy!
Very good phone for its price. Camera is OK. Video picture is stunning - very good. Runs well after cleaning out unwanted software
.. Don't update Google apps & use a memory card. Never crashes. Use a cleaner to make up for small storage. Battery is small. use a car charger. will buy another.
This phone sicks the screen is broken and it's not working s now I use iphone 5
this is really a bad phone since I purchased it was good however , the battery drains too fast even though I am not using it !!
battery at least need to be like 1 day or 2 without charging mine goes down at 1 f****ng hour this is shit reallyyyy !!!!!
This was great back in the day but had to take it fixed over 5 times...
I can make calls, send and receive text messages, but when someone calls me, it just rings 2 times then cuts off.
What is the problem?
licxer2x321, 26 Jan 2017Is it true if i put my huawei battery under the sun it will charged!?
mani13, 07 Feb 2017This is not a bad phone. all in all its a low end device that has some acceptable features. ... moreThis phoje is not compareable at all to the iphone 4 the iphone has double the ram processing power and camera quality
This phone is absolute trash. It reboots the whole time and you can not take a good photo with it. You cannot even focus on an object with that camera. It lags a lot. It lagged the day i got it. The micro phone also does not work after a few moths of using this phone. It does not take up sound only produces a loud beeping sound. i fyou hope to move any apps to your sd card that wont be possible.
The internal storage is an absolute joke, it gives you less than a GB to work with because of all the useless apps the phone has preinstalled. There is significant lag when trying to click on apps or use them, fps can even lag whilst playing a 10 mbit game which is ridiculous. Audio id delayed whilst listening to videos, it takes much too long to start up, the glass is unprotected and cracks easily.
All in all not worth a penny.
P.S. (The camera is 2 MP and the RAM is 500mb so that already tells you alot)
Dont buy this phone.
If you spend some time deleting all apps you don't use or need, minimise all startup tasks etc then this is OK for a basic phone you don't need to worry too much if it gets damaged or stolen. As a first smartphone or a teenagers phone its fine for the money. I paid 30 GBP in the UK which is probably the lowest priced phone of this type at the time.
I paid over 500 Australian dollars for five of these 12 months ago for my wife's family and all but one are faulty and useless. Won't be buying Huawei again!
Firstly, I bought this device as a touch screen phone and messaging device ONLY. I did not buy it with any expectations of it being anything more than that, because it only has 512MB of RAM (remember when computers only had that much RAM and they were rubbish? Phones are no different).
The other functions this phone has, are supported on other devices I have and I was not looking for an all-in-one 'fix my life for me please' device when I bought this (for the specs and price, it's simply an unrealistic expectation). So for me, this is a cheap, interim, back-up phone, which is the expectation I had when I bought it. Thus, I have not been disappointed, because - THIS IS MOST DEFINITELY NOT A 'SMART' PHONE. That's why it's cheap.
The camera is terrible, even for a 5MP camera. I have two other devices with cameras of same specs, i.e. 5MP etc (or even if 5MP, less bells and whistles) - one a 5th gen iPod with HDR; the other a Nokia Lumia 635 with no HDR. While the Nokia Lumia 635 does NOT have HDR functionality, it STILL takes better photos than this 'thing' (and the Apple iPod too incidentally).
Additionally, the glut of unnecessary apps and processes that come with Android/Google render the limited RAM this phone has a bloated slug UNLESS one goes through and manually terminates them all (and there are many - Android/Google are waaay WORSE than Windows in this respect - buyer beware).
Once unnecessary processes have been terminated, the battery life and performance of this touch screen phone improves significantly. If you're unsure re what can be terminated or how, suggest looking online re the processes that are running and which ones can be safely terminated (though pretty much all of them can, particularly the Google ones, and Android ones that cannot won't allow you to anyway). I got rid of Chrome (which I've never liked), and instead use the generically named 'browser' that comes with the operating system, which is almost identical to Safari. However, I only use this phone for internet if I absolutely HAVE to. Even the 5th gen iPod I have is faster to use (and easier) to connect to the internet. The iPod only has a 0.8 GHz processor, and also only has 512MB of RAM. The Nokia Lumia 635 has exactly the same Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 processor as this device and 1GB RAM, and for obvious reasons outperforms this device.
While the phone has the capability to insert an SD card, due to the ancient version of Android, the ability to view the contents of the SD card is not only severely limited/impossible without connecting the device to a laptop or PC - it's also incredibly cumbersome thanks to the lack of a simple, user-friendly file explorer/browser. The 'Files' app that comes with the device requires you to accept online access and user information/file sharing BEFORE you can use it. I simply want to view the files on the device and SD card, NOT connect online and sync with any online apps. While a alternative file explorer *could* (in theory) be downloaded from the Play store, I haven't bothered. I've simply opted to leave a spare 4GB SD card inside the phone for the bloated operating system to spread it's bloatedness onto, setting it as the "default write disk" to avoid any further bloating of the phones internal memory (which is already half bloated, even with the aforementioned processes/apps disabled/terminated).
The Android promise of "faster multi-tasking" with Android 4.4.4 is absolutely ridiculous and simply not true/impossible on a phone with only 512MB of RAM - and it never will be true.
I've opted NOT to have any Google apps running, nor leave my Google account on the phone, because this device - UNLIKE Apple or Windows devices - will NOT allow you to disable automatic updates. For those who don't want a phone with only 512MB of RAM to suffer the consequences of these (and other) processes hogging this phone's performance, the inability to disable this function is absolutely daft (ditto for those on limited data plans).
Personally, I'll never be buying an Android phone again. While the apps available in Play store vs Windows might be better, I don't really care, because there's nothing THAT necessary that I need to install it on a PHONE. Apple is still the frontrunner in terms of apps, transparent functionality etc. My second choice is a Windows phone (even though many people claim the apps are more limited, there are actually a multitude of near identical equivalents, and more of the same apps are becoming available), because the ability to disable features/updates one doesn't want running on a Windows phone is also NOT restricted. Even later versions of Android are limited in some respects, thanks to Google's renowned insistence on syncing everything/anything, and sharing your information without you being able to deny their permission without also going through screeds of web sites in an attempt to deactivate some or all of it. And even then - STILL not being able to achieve the desired outcome.
Google are NOT transparent re what information they transmit, share or store. (If not already apparent from using their sites on a laptop, Mac, or PC) THIS is made abundantly clear when you start using this phone and are presented with prompts which tell you that you MUST accept the transmission of your personal information and automatic updates if you wish to use the apps/functions available. NO THANKS. It's PRECISELY THESE FUNCTIONS that render a 512MB RAM phone such as this, A USELESS BLOATED SLUG OF A DEVICE.
Bottom line - it's a touch screen phone and messaging device with terrible battery life if one opts to use it for anything else (e.g. even listening to music stored on an SD card will drain the battery much too quickly). To its credit, at least the phone is fast to charge. As a phone and messaging device, it's adequate (note "adequate"). Anything beyond that, forget it - spend the money on a device that has the specs to support the operating system it comes with (and a battery to support that, too). In my opinion regarding Android, that would be a phone with 2GB of RAM. 1GB *might* be OK, though if you're notorious for forgetting to terminate apps when you stop using them (i.e. leave them running in the background), 1GB is also going to be a slug.
the screen just faded and sometimes shows different colors . this just happened. it's hard to find a new LCD
