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 Blaze to retail in the UK with Gingerbread

 

The guys at work at Huawei have been dormant for a while, but not for long. They're out in the open, brandishing the Blaze smartphone. The device will sport Google's current best-for-phones platform, Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It will sport a 3.2-inch...

Huawei Ideos X3 - Pocket-lint

 

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

Small, light, good at the basics

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

We like the X3. It's not the fastest phone, but its small size, decent screen and more than acceptable call quality is enough for the casual user. More advanced owners might find the touchscreen tedious, but you could certainly live with it.

Huawei IDEOS X3 Android phone

 

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

Bargain basement price ; Android 2.3 Gingerbread ; Decent design

Touchscreen sticky and not always smooth ; Screen is glossy and reflective ; On-screen keyboard is tiny

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...

Huawei Blaze review

 

An Android 2.3.4 smartphone, unsubsidised, for £99. Bargain?

Stylish curved screen ; Light and slim chassis ; Huawei interface on/off toggle ; Solid enough for kids

No camera flash ; Glitchy video output ; Terrible still photos ; Often slow to respond

The Huawei Blaze is known by several names, with Huawei calling the smartphone the U8510 in some regions and the IDEOS X3 in others.

Huawei Blaze review

 

Huawei may seem like a new name, but the company's phones have been available in the UK for some time - the Orange Barcelona was a re-branded Huawei U8350, and in our review we lamented the fact that Huawei didn't sell its handsets direct. The Blaze is...

The Blaze is occasionally laggy, but its slim design, bright screen and decent pre-installed apps make it a great budget phone

Huawei Blaze review

 

Huawei's first UK phone – known as the IDEOS X3 in the States – may be cheap and cheerful but it offers plenty of bang for your buck

It won’t set any spec sheets ablaze, but the Blaze packs in a solid Android experience at an irresistible price point

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

The Huawei Blaze gets you an awful lot for nor much money. Solid build, the full roster of smartphone features and a decent screen ensure the phone can hold its own against devices that cost £200 or more SIM-free. It's not perfect - slight lag and...
