Huawei Ascend: Hands-on Video, Photos, Specs and Price

By Jamie Pert - Oct 6, 2010

Usually we concentrate on the fastest, slimmest and most expensive smartphones available, therefore to mix things up a little I thought I would introduce you to a cheaper smartphone, which may prove to be popular with people who have less of a budget.

This smartphone is the Huawei Ascend, Engadget recently got some hands-on time with the handset and they seemed pretty impressed, apparently it is surprisingly responsive and if you check out the photos here you may be pleasantly surprised by its design.

We have embedded a brief video at the end of this post showing off the Huawei Ascend, this video reveals that it will cost just $150 contract-free, you can then get a $55 per month unlimited data plan from Cricket.

The price is very competitive given that it runs Google Android 2.1, specs include a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display, a 3.2 megapixel camera and a microSD memory card slot. The display is a little dull and the screen is a little rough, however for $150 you can’t really complain.

The Huawei Ascend will be available from Cricket within the next few weeks, it is definitely worth checking out.
