A solidly made high spec low cost phone (with 2 year guarantee) that works.
on 1 April 2015
Reviewers here are comparing this phone to top end phones that cost 5 times the price, but they are missing the point. This phone is a huge improvement on similar spec budget phones of a year ago, and it really has narrowed the gap between high and low end. It comes with a two year guarantee, and it all just works fine. The battery seems solid, as do the build quality, the operating system, and the screen is responsive and accurate right up to the edges. This is a huge improvement over the best budget Chinese phone available year ago.
My only gripes after a few days are the accessories. How many pence (or fractions of a pence) would it have cost Huawei/the customer to include a couple of screen savers in the box. I mean this is a budget phone after all, so it's not going to have gorilla glass... Or even better, by this time I'm sure everyone has a kitchen drawer full of micro USB cables and chargers. Why not sell it with a case and screen saver instead of giving everyone yet another charger?
