Excerpt: I wanted to get a better phone so that I could browse the internet more easily. I had heard pretty good things about the Android phones, but did not want to commit to a contract. I then decided to go with the Huawei Ascend Phone from Cricket.
Excerpt: I purchased this in late january. i couldnt complain it was a good phone being that it was my first android. but as the months started going i seen that it started actin more slower, internet takes long to find connection. texting cant even keep up with me and sometimes misspell words, also i never seen a phone that would foreclose so much jus to get back to the home screen..
Excerpt: I bought it in June or July of 2011. It was my first Android, smartphone, touchscreen. I previously had a Blackberry Curve 8330. It was awesome when I had 2.1, but when I upgraded to 2.2 (Froyo), I instantly saw lagging and problems. Its not a bad phone but it could be better.
Pros: Not a bad phone for beginners
Cons: Slow if u update the Android sofware, Could be faster
Excerpt: it went so slow it froze at times, there wasnt enough reception when traveling, sometimes even lost the calls.. the ball at some point didnt work, at times when locking it didnt allow it or when trying to unlock the screen went blank or the slide thing was on the wrong side theres was a lot of trouble with these phone
Pros: big screen
Cons: no flash, the little ball sometimes didn't move
Excerpt: I loooove this phone! I had the lg optimus for less than a month and absolutely hated ed! it was nothing but problems and a headache! It constantly froze, rebooted itself all the time, and battery did not last.. I went back to the store and bought the huawei ascend and have not regretted it once.. i love it! it does lag a little while texting but i can live with it!
Pros: easy, dependable, big screen
Cons: lags some while texting at times, camera-no flash
Excerpt: Sloooooow processor. camera is ok, vids look like garbage on this thing. tends to lock up alot. won't play games like angry birds the right way. lacks alot of simple things, like a call end option on the virtual dialer during a call. only plus is the bg screen. battery sucks pretty bad too. wish i had never gotten the darn thing.
Excerpt: I am amazed at the good reviews this phone has gotten on here. This is the worst phone I ever owned. The timeout feature on the screen works when it feels like. If I forget to check it, it kills the battery that much faster. Speaking of the battery, lets take today for example. I took my Assend off the charger at 7am. It is 10:45 am and the battery is almos dead. I did not make one call. I ever turn off applications that are running that I do not use.
Excerpt: get it if your thinking about it. its only about $100. i had a bb storm but it gave me soooo many problems this is my forst android and im in love with it. i rooted my phone and maxed out the CPU, i took of the keyboard and put in a better one, i got the wifi tethering for free, and a bunch of other stuff my blackberry couldnt do :-D and i was paying half the cost cause this phone is pre-paid only.
Pros: looks good, long batter when 3g,blue-t is off, gote the job done
Cons: none, u get what u pay for. u want a better phone then go buy one :-)
Excerpt: I hate this phone. I can't even view my videos when they are transferred to the computer from the phone. I have tried to fix this issue with the stores ...no help there. It is slow, and the reception no matter where you are sucks. I can't hear on it even when turned up all the way. Sounds like tunnel. And yes I have good hearing.
Pros: looks good
Cons: camer sucks, video sucks, can't view video when transferred to computer, video disappear if they are to big, can't upload pictures or video to internet, gets interrupted every time, takes to long between screens LONG lag time, Sound effects suck
Excerpt: Better options available! The phone has so many issues due to lack of memory that you'd be better off looking at something else. Though if there was more memory, the phone would be worth the price. ...................................................................................................................................
