Huawei Ideos X5 Pro Review

 

Around the middle of last year, Huawei had introduced the Ideos Pro smartphone. A neat looking phone with a set of decent features but a tad high on price. The company recently introduced the successor to the device in the form of the Ideos X5 Pro. The...

Putting it in a nutshell, the Huawei Ideos X5 Pro is a pretty neat device for 13,800 athough it has some minimal changes over the predecessor and the price hasn't seen a huge jump either. It performs well enough, the screen responds accurately and...

Huawei U8800 IDEOS X5 Android Smartphone

 

Huawei is one of those companies that have specialised in the manufacture of mobile handsets, for quite sometime now. They only recently made a debut in the Indian market, but failed to impress the community seeing as their U8-150 budget Android device...

The price tag on the Huawei IDEOS X5 is Rs. 15,000. It works out to be just a little steep, but manages to offer quite a bit of functionality for the price. Although, in this range, I would have expected a better camera and DivX and XviD codec support...

Huawei Ideos X5 ( unlocked)

 

The Huawei Ideos X5 has a clear, sharp display, a decent camera, HD 720p video capture, and a touch of premium styling.

There's no camera shutter button, the microSD card is behind the back cover, and call quality was variable.

The Huawei Ideos X5 has all the ingredients of a satisfying Android phone, but it faces stiff competition from the top and middle of the pack.

The Huawei Ideos X5 is designed with the budget conscious user in mind. It may not have the fastest processor or a whopping amount of memory but it still works fine.

Huawei Ideos X5 Reviewed

 

The Ideos X5 was one of the two new Android phones launched by Huawei during CES 2011. It's currently available in some European and Asian markets. Despite being an entry-level Android phone the Huawei Ideos X5 boasts nice features that make it...

Comparing the Huawei Ideos X5 to my old Nexus One, I would have to say that the former can give the latter a good run for its money. I did not expect Huawei to come up with such a robust and solidly built smartphone.

Huawei IDEOS X5

 

Part of the press release:

CricKet wireless offers the Huawei Ascend as a smartphone. Not as good as the X5 / X6. Hopefully CricKet will be offering these soon – word is they're gonna drop several smartphones in early 2011.
