Huawei U8510 Ideos X3 Review


The fact that you can buy this phone for around Rs 9000, it is competing straight with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Y and the LG Optimus Net P690. What it doesn�t have is the big brand name, but does make up for that with a bit of bravery. The...

Well-built, Crisp and bright display, Integrated cloud storage services

Samsung Galaxy Y & LG Optimus Net have better power package, Small battery doesn't help

Huawei IDEOS X3 review: An Android smartphone for $99. What's the catch?


The Huawei IDEOS X3 naturally makes plenty of compromises to deliver on its $99 price. The screen feels sticky to swipe and isn't always smooth, the glossy coating makes it reflective under light and the keyboard is tiny. Despite these limitations the...

Bargain basement price, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Decent design

Huawei Ideos X3 review


Huawei is slowly building a name for itself. If you haven't yet heard it, you will in the next year or so. For a start, the firm has the world's slimmest smartphone in its CES-announced Ascend P1 S. And it seems committed to making the move from...

Small, light, good at the basics

Toucscreen is insensitive and bothersome, battery life isn't brilliant

A nice enough phone for those on a budget. Sadly, the touchscreen does make it a bit of a chore to use, but as a simple, effective Android phone, it's very likeable indeed.

Huawei Blaze U8510


Huawei's first own-brand phone is one of just a few sub-£100 Android smartphones worth owning.

Neat design, Excellent Value

Slow processor, Picky soft keys, Rubbish camera

Huawei Ideos X3


Huawei puts forward a very respectable low-end device in the Ideos X3, but its nearest competitors have a couple of extra features worth considering.

Front-facing camera ; Interesting user interface ; Overall great performance

No LED flash ; Mediocre touch response

At AU$89, the X3 is a steal, though network locked, but for about AU$50 more, you can also choose the HTC Wildfire S, with a better camera (with a flash), better UI and better battery life. We found no real flaws with the Ideos X3, but, in this price...

Huawei U8510 IDEOS X3 Blaze review


Another remarkably inexpensive smartphone from a manufacturer keen to make its name in the Android market, but is the Huawei Blaze as cheerful as it is cheap? Julian Prokaza goes hands-on to find out.

Ok cheap smart phone... until you use a proper one! Don't be put off by the name. They make great ph


This was my first Android phone, so naturally I was impressed! It does everything it's meant to and that's pretty good for a phone that only cost $60. After updating to a new phone (also Huawei) I really can't say it's a great phone. The touch screen...
