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. Storage is a pain in the neck; it doesn't allow you to store too many apps on memory and you're still stuck with apps that you don't want, need or use.
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. I moved all of my downloaded apps to my memory card and still have no memory.
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. Huawei needs to recall these phones and put a better system in.
"it is "ok" but it's definately not a "smart" phone"

Pros: Good sound, good viewing quality
Cons: Screen is too small for texting I hit wrong buttons ALL the time, was never a problem with last phone. I have downloaded a couple games but about a minute into playing the games they foreclose I have attempted it several times with different games.
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. Screen is vibrant but not multi-touch. texting is a nightmare and isnt very accurate. Internet is ok (better in WIFI mode) but no pinch zoom or Adobe FLASH.
