Summary: this is a great phone, I'm a developer and we use this for testing apps, its a great little phone, the touch can sometimes be unresponsive, but for the money it packed with a lot of gear - compass, accelerometer, gps, prolixity and the camera is ok, not the best. Updates are an issue, the Huawei website is well, in Chinese, and difficult to get the correct ROM updates.
Summary: Not had this item for long (couple of months) and the supposed Gorilla glass has shattered from a minor drop and is now DANGEROUS with bits of glass flaking off! This phone is a liability! <edit> ordered a new glass, replaced it with a fair bit of work getting the old one off, still a good phone but that glass is really a liability. The phone itself is fast, works well, has good battery life, and provides no problems in use.
Summary: Very nice phone,bought it for my son for Xmas.Ofcourse I had to test it to compare with my Sony Xperia SP and I have to say some features are better than Xperia has,it works very fast.Only downside is that when phone is on standby mode home button does not light up on touch,it only lights up when phone is in use,but otherwise brilliant phone for that price.Would recommend to anyone who is not bothered by brand.
Summary: Having destroyed my previous phone by leaving it out in the rain, I decided to finally get a smartphone. Talk about bewildering choices! Anyway, I eventually decided that I wanted one with a decent battery, a good camera, decent functionality, a good size screen, mid-range in terms of price and sim-free. Having read the reviews I thought that this might fit the bill.
It turns out to be a Chinese model, and Huawei Uk cannot help in changing the software.

Summary: Nice phone, but 'am unable to use it, camera is good, every thing else seems okay. I know it is a bit late in the day but can you please advise me how to proceed with getting the software to change it or how to return the set. I thank you in antisipation.
Summary: had a galazy ace before this and wanted upgrade as smashed the screen. this phone appealled to me as had big screen great MP on the camera and flash. Also it has notification light too which is bonus. phones fast and works great has ok battery life like all smart phones a days use if you use internet and apps on it. not so great for the high end games as not enough processing power. but overall i love this phone.
Great Android handset that has high powered battery

Summary: I decided to buy this phone afters some consideration & having looked already a Huawei's latest offering offered on contract I was pretty impressed by the overall quality. I realized that this one was a much older model & has been out a little while so was naturally a little bit sceptical but it offered almost the same features as the new model inc a 8 mega pixel camera all excluding the 4G networks that I probably would n't be using much anyway yet.
