Huawei IDEOS U8150 -


An Android 2.2 smartphone for the budget-conscious? The affordable Huawei IDEOS U8150 comes with that, a 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen and a 3.2-megapixel camera.

AT&T 3G Works On This Phone


For a hundred and thirty bucks I have an android with hot spot functionality and AT&T 3G connectivity. I couldn't be more happy. Best backup phone ever!

To my surprise this phone does have the AT&T 3g compatible radio. I purchased this phone as a simple backup phone. Based on the newegg specs I expected the phone not to work with AT&T 3g and I was fine with that. I was just happy I could find a cheap...

Sometimes the phone is a little slow but I can totally overlook that fact since it was super cheap

Very Bad is not as repuatble as I thought.


I bought 2 phones. One is apparently used with lots of apps and broken wi-fi. I am returning it

Works perfect


Works great with the 3G data plan in US with T-mobile and China with Chinaunicom. It has embed GPS receiver and you can install GPS software in the micro SD card or use Google map

Have to optimize the applications and other options on the phone to get 4 to 5 day power life

Works great!


I had an HTC Tilt 2 (good phone, bad OS) before this, and I am totally pleased with how well this phone works and operates the Froyo OS. It doesn't look like much and is small, but it can do just about everything larger, more expensive Android 2.2...

Android 2.2 out of the box; good battery life; good, responsive buttons; great price point for Android and no contract; FM Radio (while using headset)

The Fixed Focus (FF) camera doesn't take great pictures, but is good enough for the cost of the phone. The phone's small form and slippery backside could make handling troublesome; especially for those with large hands

Buyer beware, phone doesn't last


I bought this phone around 3 months ago, and at first I loved it. It was small, fit in my pocket well, had great sound and reception, newer version of Android, easy to access wifi and not need a data plan. The problem was when 10 weeks after purchase...

Good form factor. Feels good in the hand. Modern version of android os. Easy wifi connectivity. Works right out of the box (but only for a short period of time. Good touchscreen keyboard. Excellent sound. Great price

Small screen, hard to view in glare. Phone didn't last at all

Does not work with data service


Good features over the Wi-Fi network

is not compatible with the data plan that you already have. I have a data plan unlimited but when I switched over to the Ideos smartphone, i was not able to connect to internet. On inquiring with the ATT CC, i was told they do not support the phone and...
