disappointed

  • Summary: I have this phone and my sister has the Ascend 1. Unfortunaly both of them freeze up daily and keep telling us that we have no storage space left (and we have very few apps etc). I would not recommend an Huawei phone. =(

Okay for starter smartphone, but...

  • Excerpt: ... this isn't exactly top of the line. It was good for it's intended purpose, which was a basic no frills smartphone. But, that's about it. As my particular Ascend got older, it's been a complete pain to deal with. It's run a lot slower on a 3G network and even on Wifi.
  • Cons: Less than optimal call quality, Limited app storage space, Poor design/durability, No flash on camera; inconsistent picture quality

  • Summary: Screen is too fragile. I dropped my phone in my truck, it hit the plastic floor mat and shattered. This was the 2nd phone and the 1st did the same thing.

Don't like it/Don't buy it

  • Summary: I can not stand this phone... I've had it for awhile and upgraded from my blackberry 9330. After having the Ascend, I want to go back to the BB. The Ascend freezes up all the time and is always running low on "phone" memory and therefore runs slow.

Terrible Phone! Not worth your money.

  • Summary: I bought this smartphone due to the low price, and quickly realized that was a mistake. The Huawei has a terrible running system and freezes up bad. I had to reboot the phone often even a few times a day. I would not recommend this phone.

  • Summary: I got this phone as a gift 4 months ago now and I can't wait to get a different one (its the $100 Walmart straight talk version). Almost nothing from the Google play store works on this phone.

The Ascend 1.5 is what it SHOULD be called!

gigaware, Phone Arena
6 January 2012
  • Excerpt: This phone is just a little better than the Ascend 1 ( will call it the A1). The phone is built nicely and solid feel but has a cheap backplate. CPU speed is not the adverstised 800Mhz. It is actually running at 566Mhz at best. Check Huawei's site...it gives the specs.
  • Pros: Solid build, can be tethered to computer, Vibrant screen
  • Cons: CPU is sluggish, Poor camera with no flash, Not muti-touch, No Adobe Flash, Inaccurate screen when texting, Random reseting, Poor call quality, Too much Bloatware
