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...

First Looks: Huawei Ideos X3

 

The Android 2.3 Huawei Ideos X3 is equipped with a 3.2-inch touchscreen and a 3.2-megapixel camera. It's also priced at a reasonable S$299. Let's find out how it fares.

The Huawei Ideos X3 is a decent entry-level smartphone that has met our expectations. Shelling out S$288 (without contract) or possibly nothing with contract, the smartphone is a steal for those looking for a taste of the Gingerbread pie. To put things...

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 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...

Huawei Ideos X3

 

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

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 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 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 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...
